    It is great that you have set up a showcase thread for your creations! :)
    Birdsong Starter is a very nice home! The open shutter windows look nice in the build. The flowers and plants look very nice in the corner nooks either sides of the front steps. Very nice back porch. Sims will enjoy cooking meals on the BBQ there or enjoy painting on the easel in the outdoors air. Very nice layout and furnishing of the interior of the home! The wall pattern and brick wall texture looks nice. The coat stand and display shelves item either sides of the front door are homely touches. Very nice living room area. The sofas look nice how they are placed there. Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the sofas watching tv, chatting and reading a book from the bookshelf. They will have fun dancing to the music from the stereo! Nice study desk area for sims to enjoy sitting at the desk table using the computer. The books are a nice touch on the desk. Very nice design of the kitchen and dining room! The floor texture looks nice. The island sink counter is great! The fruit bowl, bottles, knives and utensils on the counters and the teaset on the dining table are nice kitchen and dining touches there. Very nice bedrooms. Nice science nook in the kids bedroom. Sims will enjoy doing experiments on the science table. The wall tiling in the bathroom is very nice. The hanging robes are nice home touches on the bathroom wall.
    The home is very nice :)
    Edit : I was looking at your home again and the gardening box area is very nice! The lavender looks pretty around the edges of the gardening boxes, and the rabbit and the rooster look great there! Sims will enjoy growing and harvesting plants in the box.

    I love your build! The interior is my favorite. I really like the kitchen, especially with all of the dark colors. The cabinets are also really nice, good job with the placement of the different types (I have just recently discovered this feature and am still working on making them look right).
    In the living room, I like all of the different walls types. It makes it have a contemporary feel with the dark brick wall (which was also well used in the kitchen). The dino theme in the kid bedroom is really nice.
    I also love the rounded deck in the back!

    My only recommendation would be to change the exterior a little. Maybe put two windows on either side. Or, extend the part that sticks out to line up with the triangle part of the other roof? You could also make this a different wall color (the dark brick form inside would look nice).

    Very well done!

    Comfy Cubby is a very nice home! :) The backyard area is very nice! The roosters, bunny and hen/basket of eggs around the tree look very great! Nice outdoors dining area for sims to enjoy cooking on the grill and eating their meal at the picnic table in the sunshine. The gardening nook is nice. Sims will enjoy growing and harvesting plants in the gardening boxes. The hose on the wall and the watering can are nice touches there. The flowers look very pretty lining the edges of the front pathway and the front porch. Very nice furnishing of the interior of the home. The grey brick wall texture gives a great look to the home. The fruit bowl is a nice touch on the kitchen counter. Very nice living room area for sims to enjoy sitting resting on the sofa there watching tv and reading a book from the bookshelf. Nice study desk nook for child sims to sit at the desk table and do their homework. The blue colour scheme of the bedroom looks nice. The tissues is a homely touch on the bedside table.
    The home is very nice :)

    Good morning Chips!

    Lovely homes! I like that you placed those wooden boxes next to the trash can out front. It makes me think a family just got done moving in, and that's an awesome little detail that adds ambiance. The brick accent walls in your first build are awesome! I'm a huge brick and stone fan, so that just makes me giggle with glee. lol All the clutter in the kitchen and bedrooms is awesome!!! It gives me a realistic vibe and rocks! Such a great first build!

    Comfy Cubby
    This micro home is SO FLIPPIN' CUTE! The patio is adorably lined with flowering shrubbery, so cute and happy! The blue in the kitchen is really pretty and contrasts nicely with the dark brick (brick rules!). I love that the chairs aren't the same color as the kitchen table. It's a nice contrast and something I don't see often. It looks good and I like it! The back patio is awesome with the grass going wild and the chickens pecking through it. The little touches like the hose, simple patio seating, and gardening tools near the boxes are great. I really like this little house because it reminds me of the little homes in our surrounding area that are inhabited by good honest people that don't have huge elaborate "things" but are definitely treasures themselves. I get a fuzzy feel good emotion when looking at this house.

    Dusty Turf
    Oi! That bar is super creative! The cabinets look great down there along the bottom and then the shelves above them are really cool! A mirror where the picture frames are in the center would really tie in all those things wonderfully. It looks good with the pictures there too, though! Cute patio spaces and the railing you chose is awesome! The chicken pen with all the grass and the birdbath is so cool! It's making me really want a farm EP or GP. lol I still love the clutter by the trashcan! Those pink flamingos are cracking me up (in a good way).

    Dusty Turf is a very nice home! :) The rocks and flowers on the edges of the home look very nice. Very nice layout of the interior of the home! The yellow colour schrme of the kitchen looks very nice and sunny . Very nice study desk nook. Sims will enjoy sitting at the desk table using the computer and looking out through the windows at the outdoors views. The coat stand is a homely touch beside the front door. Very nice dining area! The fruit bowl on the dining table is nice for sims to see when eating their meals, and the drinks display shelves look nice on the wall. The family photos between the drinks shelves are homely touches there. The flooring through the home looks nice. The fenced chicken pen looks very great! The grass and the birdbath looks nice in the pen. Sims will enjoy growing and harvesting plants in the gardening boxes. Very nice outdoors dining patio! Sims will enjoy cooking meals on the grill and eating them in the sunshine at the umbrella covered table. The pink flamingos are nice touches in the back garden and the cactus plants look nice either sides of the steps.
    The home is very nice :)

    Hey there sweet builds. I really like your work shed build. The way you painted the ground and used moveobjects to create a work area for your gardeners and added some lovely flowers in around the fountain. I really has the look and feel of a indoor-outdoor environment. A gardener sims would be very happy here.
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 157,841 Member
