    "Camouflaged in some way or other"

    Do you mean hidden? Or just not standing out as an Alien type of house...

    Not necessarily hidden @misscbong but blending in and not standing out too much :)

He wanted a bachelor pad type house, that was somewhat disguised with a luxurious master suite and a hidden room for all his treasures. He also wants to be able to getaway quickly if needed. This house is located in the modern district in oasis springs, so the house has a modern design to better blend in. The treasure room is hidden in the basement with a two way access if he gets trapped. The house also has two accesses to outside for quick getaway and the loft has a door get outside if needed as well. Donnell will be able to use the hidden exit that is located in the house, down the basement, back up and outside. Enjoy!

    If i am doing the house and room entry, do I have 15,000 just for the room or can it be used for the whole build
  • BuildnShareBuildnShare Posts: 3,215 Member
    @TwtyBrd0707 if you are creating the whole build the total budget is 75K. If you would like to create the treasure room as a separate issue the total cost for this is 15K for this room only :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: Home for Donnell Indigo
    “I’m looking for a place to live when I’m here. A bachelor’s pad. Something that’s comfortable with or without female company. But I want it to blend in. I don’t want something that’s going to stand out like a neon sign. I’d like comfortable, loungy furniture. A big masterpiece of a master bedroom and an equally luxurious master bath. I need a secure room in which to store my…souvenirs. And quick, discreet routes out of the house if someone does come snooping around.”

    #40 - La Casa Dello Splendore

    You let out an indulgent sigh of pleasure, sitting on the walk in front of your favorite cafe. In front of you is the remains of an amazing pasta dish and your preferred sparkling beverage. A soft breeze caresses your cheek, keeping the warmth of the sun from becoming too intense. There couldn’t be a better way to wait for a late appointment than this.

    You are roused from your doze by a low female voice in an entrancing accent saying, “Mi scusi, Signora. Are you the architect?” You open your eyes to find a beautiful woman standing next to you. Deep red hair, so dark its almost burgundy, frames a face that could have been model for a statue in the Renaissance, set with a pair of large black eyes. Unlike most redheads you’ve seen, her skin is a delicate golden tan. She is dressed in a lovely, long shirt that looks as if someone has painted a watercolor garden across it, over a pair of snug embroidered jeans. Over her shoulder is a large purse in shades that compliment her shirt. She’s the kind of woman who looks like she should be trendsetting in Milan while wearing her most casual of clothing.

    “I am. Its nice to meet you.” You hold out a hand, getting one back that is both perfectly manicured, and yet bears the calluses of someone used to holding tools.

    “Bene. I am Eleganza della Pietra. We had an appointment. I am so sorry I was late. I am new here and got lost.” She says apologetically, sitting down when invited.

    “Its all right. I had a beautiful lunch outside on a beautiful day. Who could complain about that?” You say with a smile, making her laugh softly. “What can I do for you, Ms della Pietra?”

    She smiles a Mona Lisa smile and says “Please, call me Eleganza.”

    “Thank you Eleganza. Where are you from?”

    “I am from Venice. I moved here to have different,” There is a pause while she looks for the right word. “Ispirazione.”

    “You are an artist?” you ask, guessing at the meaning of her word.

    “Si. I am a scultrice.”

    You pause, “A sculptress?”

    “That is the word.” Eleganza pulls out a notebook from her pretty bag and hands it to you. “I am still working on my Simlish. A friend wrote out what I want for you, in case I do not get the words right.”

    “Your Simlish is great.” You assure her, taking the notebook and reading over the requirements. “This is perfect. Just one question.”

    “Si?”

    “What kind of budget do I have?”

    “Oh, 150,000! Is that enough?”

    “Should be fine. I’ll have it done for you in a couple weeks.”

    “Che’s stupendo!” She exclaims happily.

    Requirements:

    Italianate style house on moderate lot

    3 bedrooms, 2 baths

    Separate building for an sculpting studio with lots of light and a half bath

    Landscaping

    Small pool

    Budget: 150,000 (to include lot cost as well as build cost)

    Sim Challenge:

    Create Eleganza della Pietra, give her the creative trait, the rest is up to you.

    Room Challenge:

    Design the sculpting studio with a budget of 30,000.

    I may be the only on,e, @BuildnShare, but I'm finding some very contrasting houses for the Italianate style! Haha. Would you be able to give a sample picture of the style you're referencing?

    Like, would it be more Mediterranean, or older Victorian-Italianate style? This is one very interesting style of architecture...
  • BuildnShareBuildnShare Posts: 3,215 Member
    edited March 2016
    @misscbong Italianate was a very popular style during the Victorian era and there are many variations from different types of buildings and different Countries. However, they share the main characteristics of Italianate. Interpret this as you wish, we look forward to seeing your design :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: I was inspired by the painting of sunflowers against a blue sky found in Decorations. Yellow and blue were used throughout for interior decoration, and sunflowers are to be found inside and outside the house. An Italian woman who wants an Italianate house must be quite eclectic, so that is the style of the interior I chose.

    #41 - A Taste For Finer Things

    You are engrossed in the latest issue of 'Dwell' when Rose’s dog begins barking frantically in alarm. You rush across your office and throw open your door to see a tall, spindly man with a very unhappy white cat hissing and digging its claws into the man’s shoulder. Rose is trying desperately to restrain her uncharacteristically agitated dog and shoots you a look that clearly says 'HELP!'

    “Why don’t you come in my office, sir,” you say, motioning to the office behind you. The man rushes past you into the office. As soon as the door closes, the cat becomes docile and begins to purr. Like its owner, the cat is long and thin, with white fur, faint grey striping, and the largest ears you’ve ever seen on a cat.

    “What a peculiar cat. I’ve never seen one like that before, Mister..?”

    “Corbett. Niles Corbett. My companion is Buerre Blanc. She is a Devon Rex.”

    “It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Corbett. I apologize for the welcoming committee. My assistant's dog is usually very friendly, but this is the first time we've had a feline visitor. What can I do for you?” Mr. Corbett is a sour-looking man with a long face, a heavy brow, and a small down-turned mouth. His clothes are understated but clearly made of fine fabrics.

    “Well, I'm in need of a new home for myself and Buerre Blanc,” he says, stroking the cat's pale fur. “I am a professional food critic and author of the blog 'Pour L'Assiette'. I work from home, so I need something with a comfortable study. I would also like two bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and another full bathroom for the rest of the house. I don't need a lot of room, as it's just Buerre Blanc and me, but I would like quality furnishings and a well-appointed kitchen with an attached room for wine storage. I am a collector of fine wines, so the wine storage should have separate temperature controls.”

    “Is there a particular style of home you prefer, Mr. Corbett?”

    “I gravitate toward French Country architecture. I enjoy the stately architecture and formal aesthetic.”

    “What kind of budget are we dealing with, and how soon would you like your new home completed?”

    “Apartment life has grown quite tiresome for me. Buerre Blanc and I are both ready for the quiet of our own home. We would like to be out of our apartment in two weeks. As for the budget, I am prepared to spend up to 95,000 and not a penny more. I trust that is feasible?”

    “Absolutely! I will get started immediately!”

    Requirements:

    20x30 lot in the world of your choice
    95,000 budget
    French Country style architecture
    2 bedrooms, 1 with en-suite bathroom
    1 extra full bathroom
    Well-appointed kitchen with separate wine storage
    Study
    Living room
    Dining area
    Garage
    Fine furnishings

    Room Challenge:

    Create the well-appointed kitchen, the budget for this room is 20,000

    Sim Challenge:

    Create Niles Corbett and show him living in his new home. Niles is a gloomy loner, who aspires to be Master Chef
