    @BuildnShare Does the home have to have four bedrooms? I'm unclear because in the storyline it says three or four (which is what I was remembering when building-lol) but the description below that says four. The house will work either way but I'll need to do some remodeling for four bedrooms.

    Four bedrooms @JasonAnthonySterling, 3 or 4 bathrooms :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: I used a floor plan from eplans (I think) for this build as I wasn't really sure what Low country style was. While most of the pictures I seen were either on stilts or foundations were full storey height I really liked this house so I went with it anyway. Hopefully its still low country enough.
    I had a lot of problems with the roofing. originally the garage roof had 9 pieces but whenever I tried to wallpaper them the game crashed so I ended up having to just use the criss-crossed 2 pieces which doesn't look anywhere as good but was the only way forward. Just wondering has anyone else had issues like this with the roofs?

    ENTRY DETAILS: A traditional style done for the current day. This is a four bedroom/ three bath home. The colors are kept soft and muted but not necessarily light- such as using darker flannel grays and cream sickle orange to promote a restful environment. Toward this end clutter and distraction on the walls has also been restrained. As is typical with this style most of the home is on the first floor where the living/dining/ fully equipped kitchen/ casual dining/ two guest bedroom and two baths are located. There's a central hall, also a hallmark of traditional colonial era style, running from front to back that provides a grand entrance and ample room for parties. Being that they are up and coming attorneys I figure they'll need room to entertain. I placed a corner sink in the kitchen to take advantage of the view of the beautiful pool and back yard while washing up.

    The three first floor bedrooms are destined for future children and perhaps a nanny or butler. As such their decor is kept low in anticipation of their future use and the two rooms on the right side of the structure looking from the front are connected by a "Jack and Jill" bath. The second floor is tucked into the space under the roof and built into a modern addition on the back. There's a small artist nook/ work out area/ computer and a luxurious master bath. An upstairs balcony provides an area for meditation. The exterior is fully landscaped with a pool and outdoor entertaining space. There's also a large yard to next to the pool/entertaining space for future children's activities.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Designed in the traditional Low Country style, this elevated home would be perfect in a southern or coastal setting where cool breezes are desired, yet flooding is not. Featuring three bedrooms - a guest room, a child's room big enough for two, and a nursery - and two and a half baths on the main floor, the home also contains an open-concept kitchen/dining room which leads directly into a family room filled with plenty of games and books, as well as a big screen tv and fireplace. Beyond the kitchen, there is a mudroom that leads out onto a covered porch, which, in turn, overlooks a built-in pool. On the second floor is the master suite, which features a private office and gym, as well as a dressing room and a luxurious, top-of-the-line, spa-quality bath.

    SIM : Dream & Michael Ryunoten

Also on this floor is the guest suite with adjoining bathroom and glass doors leading onto the decking. Upstairs there are a further 3 bedrooms, family bathroom and ensuite off the master bedroom.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This low country build features a basement gym, outdoor pool and ground floor master suite. The pool has a safety fence surrounding it for when the little ones arrive. There is also a nursery, kids room and guest bedroom. The gym has one way windows looking into the pool so it feels less like a basement. I've included a computer nook in the kitchen as I imagine they are extremely happy with their offices that they won't often take work home. I've made sure the master suite is a place of luxury, featuring a screened porch with an easel, a dressing area and a large master bathroom.

    #65 The Hawthorne Project - Part 3

    Well, this is surely easier than the last time I received an email from The Hawthorne Project. You cast your mind back to when Rose had left and you hadn’t met the man who had recommended his sister as the next recipient of the foundation and gone on to take over from the irreplaceable Rose.

    Hello there my dear,

    I hope that this email finds you well. I just wanted to thank you again for your help with the Disaster Plan that we managed to action for those poor unfortunate souls in Oasis Springs. I have enclosed the application form for the next recipient. The poor little thing is really deserving of our help.

    With kindest regards, Ms Hawthorne

    “Well, I wasn’t expecting a personal email from the lady herself.” You think to yourself as you open up the attached file. You find yourself looking at a photo of a young man, with his belongings on a street corner, it looks like a tourist snap that was taken at just the right spot to capture the moment completely. He looks so bereft and dejected, that you wonder how on earth he had the wherewithal to contact The Hawthorne Project.

    You continue to scan the documents.

    “Hi, I am writing to you, because I met this young man last week. He is a former soldier who has recently been made homeless. I noticed the regiment badge on his backpack as we were waiting for a bus and being a military man myself we got chatting. It turns out he suffers with PTSD, his wife left him and took the house and his children, he has a son and a daughter, who are both in elementary school. He has been living rough for a couple of months, he likes to ride the buses and people watch. I believe that he has been dealt a tough hand in life and that it’s up to those more fortunate to help out if and when they can. I saw the leaflet for The Hawthorne Project flier and immediately thought of Dave, so that’s why I am applying. Thank you for taking the time to read my application.”

    You find that there is a lump in your throat as you finish reading the form. Dave is certainly in need of some help. You head out into the lobby to grab a tissue from Karl’s desk.

    “I’m guessing you read the latest Hawthorne application?” You ask him.

    “I did, and all I can say is I think Ms Hawthorne should be up for a Sainthood.” is his reply.

    “I think you might be right.” But you can’t help thinking of all the other unfortunates who must be in similar or even worse conditions than Dave Potter and you have to believe that the world is going to change for the better one day.

    Heading back into your office, you sit at your desk and notice a post script to Ms Hawthorne’s email.

    As Mr Potter has children, I would think that it would be relevant to allow him the funding as per a Sim with children living with them full time. My hope is that Mr Potter be able to rehabilitated back into a functioning member of society with access to his two children. Therefore, the budget for this project should be $40,000 as per the guidelines for a home for three Sims.

    The Brief:

    A 3 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 (must be an item that improves the fitness skill) and a bookcase.

    The budget must not exceed 40,000.

    Sim Challenge:

    Create Dave Potter, he is an active but gloomy. His final trait and aspiration are of course up to you. You should show Dave interacting with his new environment.

    Room Challenge:

    Create a gym for Dave, your budget for this room is 7,500. It should be no larger than 20 squares in total, this does not need to be in a square.
