    Hi everyone!

    Is there an easy way to save my apartment (I used 19 Culpepper) as a room after it's already built? I only found a tutorial explaining how to make it a single room before building... but I'm struggling a bit now it's finished and I didn't know it could't be uploaded as it is to the gallery.

    @Wildling this link was attached in the brief and I found it very helpful. Don't forget the wall by the balcony so the balcony is included as part of the room.

    Thanks you for the help :)
    This is the tutorial I mentioned... my apartment is already built, I already tried removing the walls but they are still separate rooms. I'll have to find another way. But thank you!


  • masajomasajo Posts: 4,011 Member
    @Wildling if you delete one portion of the wall, then drag the wall to meet, then it will show as a room. Do this on all of the ones until it all shows as one room. Of course you've got to re-paint the one section of the wall, etc :)

    Thanks to all you super helpful forum members, @Wildling has this helped? And don't forget, you don't technically have to upload your entry for it to be valid.

    #58 - The Second Sister - Journye

    Your phone beeps, startling you out of the creative trance you were in. It beeps again from somewhere within the clutter scattered over your drafting table. Frantically, you toss things around until you locate the offensive object.

    A notice flashes on the screen: Phone conference with Journye. You let out the annoyed sigh that only an interrupted artist can understand, before dialing the number.

    A highly annoyed female voice greets you by name against the backdrop of a series of bangs and slams.

    “Journye?” You ask, hesitantly.

    “Yeah. Hows it going?” She says amiably, before grunting. There’s the sound of something breaking.

    “I’m fine…Is this a bad time?”

    “No. Its fine. We’re just setting up for a concert tonight. Sorry about the noise.”

    “It sounds like you’re in a warzone.”

    “Really? You’re doing this now?” comes the acerbic British voice of one of the other sisters, Sarah.

    Journye says “If I don’t, Rosie will kill me.”

    Theres a sharp cry in the back ground, then a series of loud cracks. “plum. Can I call you back in 5?”

    “Um…sure.”

    Its closer to 15 before she calls you back again, sounding a little breathless.

    “Sorry. Ah, one of the stagehands hurt himself.” The noise has dropped considerably.

    “Its not a problem. So what can I do for you Journye?”

    “Well, I need a place. My wife and her business partner are coming into town. Lily’s gonna take over my old room at Gunk’s for a while. But Rosie and I need a place to live. It would be nice if I could have it close to Gunk’s, next door or across the street. Something that’s a short run or walk since we rehearse at her place. Need at least 2 rooms. Pretty. Rosie’s more girly than I am. Former cheerleader, fashion designer, nutritionist, likes pink… So, I need a place to hang out away from the girly stuff and she needs a place to work on her fashion stuff. I’m not exactly a homemaker, or whatever the word is, like her. Decent kitchen. Really nice master suite.” Journye sounds like shes at a bit of a loss. “Um, good security system, fenced back yard…”

    Sympathetically, you say “She didn’t give you much direction did she?”

    “No. I’d have dumped it on her if she wasn’t busy getting ready to move her and Lily’s store out here.” The tortured sound in Journye’s voice moves you to suggest something you normally wouldn’t.

    “Would you like me to decide on the details for you? Then we can change things out if she doesn’t like it.”

    “If I wasn’t already married, I’d marry you.” she says with relief clear in her voice. In the background someone calls out something. “Ive got to go. Thanks!”

    “Wait! Whats my budget?”

    “Oh. Um, 45?” Then the line goes dead.

    Requirements:

    Budget 45,000 (to include build cost plus lot cost)
    2 or more bedrooms
    Nice master suite
    Get away room for Journye
    Work room for Rosie

    Sim Challenge:

    Show Journye’s reaction to her new home.

    So, I decided to make my home an apartment (pretty much because I didn't enter on time for the last challenge) so do I have to put the fenced in backyard?

    2 or more bedrooms
    Nice master suite

    Does this mean that there should be at least 3 bedrooms? Or does it mean that there should be like 1 bedroom and the master suite?

    Edit: Any specific lot size required?

    The fenced in backyard is not a requirement of the brief, it's what Journye would like, so it's up to you @SyddyB206 :)

    There must be two or more bedrooms, the master suite will be one of these @pronterus and no specific lot required, this is your choice :)

    @BuildnShare I am a little confused, does the house need a lot of pink because Rosie loves pink? Or because Journye doesn't want it to be too girly, the pink has to be restricted to their bedroom and Rosie's work area?

    Sorry, I just want to make sure I understood correctly.
  • FaithofKaelaFaithofKaela Posts: 1,822 Member

    Rosie’s more girly than I am. Former cheerleader, fashion designer, nutritionist, likes pink… So, I need a place to hang out away from the girly stuff and she needs a place to work on her fashion stuff.

    I took the above to mean that the home itself was to be more to Rosie's taste, with a non-pink room/retreat for Journye to hide out in. But that's just my take...

    @FaithofKaela Thanks for your help. That's what I thought as well. I'm making a pink house at the moment, but I just want to make sure.

The exterior is pink and white and the main colours of the first floors are pink and a little bit of purple. The second floor is a bit more neutral because it's where Journye's room is and also the guest room and extra bathroom.

    #59 - The Hawthorne Project - Phase 2

    “I can’t believe it’s been three months since I met Ms Hawthorne” You think to yourself as you open the email from The Hawthorne Legacy on your laptop. You still had Rose sitting in the foyer being her ultra efficient self, now, the foyer looks a little like a bomb site, with papers and folio’s littering most of the surfaces.

    “I really miss Rose. But I must find a replacement soon, or this place is going to start losing clients.” You ruminate on this as you read the email.

    Hi, my name is Karl Hedges, I saw a flyer for the Hawthorne Project and had to email in for my sister, Julia. She is new to the area and is stuck in a small one room apartment in a shady area of town. It’s a shame she’s so much of a loner, she barely leaves her apartment. She deserves better than this, I would love to help her myself, but my husband was recently made redundant and we have three wonderful children to support. She moved here to be closer to us and I feel just awful that things haven’t turned out as planned. We were planning on building an annexe to our home for her to live in, so that I could return to work as a Personal Assistant. Julia is a nanny, she is so family oriented, we were going to provide room and board for her services. I have attached a link to her Simpinterest account so that you can see the sort of décor ideas she has.

    You click the link and you are taken to a page that shows a real love of shabby chic, lots of baby pinks and blues and creams. This girl has taste you think to yourself. As you continue to browse Julia’s Pins you notice that there are lots of Yoga poses and clothing, as well as healthy recipes. You continue to read the rest of Karl’s email.

    She doesn’t know that I am doing this for her, she is quite proud and would hate to think that she was being given ‘charity’, but I want her to be safe and have a home she can love. Everyone deserves at least that. She is so cheerful about her situation, insisting that something will turn up.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this email and I really hope to hear from you soon.

    Regards.

    Karl Hedges

    This is perfect, you think to yourself, you start up your design programme and start beavering away on ideas for your new project.

    Brief:

    A 1 or 2 bedroom home, you have free reign on how the house is built, landscaped, laid out etc.
    Must include: a computer, a vegetable garden, a chess table, an easel, at least one musical instrument, at least one piece of fitness equipment and a book case.
    The budget must not exceed $30,000.

    Sim Challenge:
    Create Julia Hedges from the information provided in the brief.
