    LOT COST:2000
    BUILD COST:68280
    TOTAL COST: 70280
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://imgur.com/a/yUMxG
    ENTRY DETAILS: So I took the concept of diamonds and interpreted it in the house design of Spigoli with lots of angles and jagged sharp edges. Its not a cosy house by any means but its design is 'cutting edge' ;) ;) I thought Sal was a cool dude when I created him so I wanted a modern funky house for him to spend his retirement. His diamond can be found on the coffee table (I increased its size). Its open plan downstairs leading up to 2 bedrooms 1 ensuite and 1 family bathroom. Thee is room in the upstairs landing for office space. The garden contains various plant boxes for Sal to potter around in and the lemon tree is already in place.

    SIM ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://imgur.com/a/Gn02i
    ENTRY DETAILS: I gave Sal a backstory with him coming from Monte Vista originally. His sister, Zanna's mother recently passed away so she has come to stay with him while he settles into his new house. Sal has the Freelance Botanist aspiration and is a collector, cheerful, active as well as a foodie. Zanna has the Painter Extraordinaire aspiration so I made her creative and an art lover but hot headed.

    ENTRY DETAILS: My inspiration for this lot is a "jewel box" home which is a small home that packs plenty of high-end finishes and details. This seemed like the perfect type of home for Sal! His gourmet kitchen is where he likes to spend most of his time whipping up amazing dishes packed with perfect produce from his vegetable and herb garden. Don't forget to visit the diamond grotto pool in the back yard. There's a bench nearby where you can relax and read a book while enjoying the view. Sal's uncut diamond enjoys a prominent place in the study, and there are lots of other "diamond" touches throughout the decor.

    A reminder to use the entry form as is. If you are adding any pictures, please limit them to two per entry post and place them at the bottom of the entry form.

    #BnS 76: We're Going Deeper Underground

    Terrance Cophus hates people. He loathes them with a passion. If he had any choice he wouldn't even be in here talking to you. As it is, he doesn't entirely believe you won't screw up what he wants. And you know all of this because he tells you, in blunt terms that leave no question of his feelings.

    You swallow a sigh and put a polite smile on your face. "Don't worry Mr Cophus. I will do everything in my power to give you exactly what you want."

    "Don't you patronize me." He snaps, glaring at you.

    "That wasn't my intent," you say soothingly. "I'm sorry if you feel I was." You can already tell that there is nothing that is going to make this meeting a good one. "What would you like in your house?" You ask, clicking your pen to take notes.

    After several moments of sullen silence, he speaks grudgingly. "I want it far away from people. And I want it 2 stories."

    "All right," you agree, taking notes.

    "I want a vegetable garden and lots of trees on top."

    You blink, "On top? On the roof?"

    "No. On the ground," he snaps.

    "Oh, all right. How many bedrooms would you like?"

    "2."

    "And how many bathrooms?"

    "2. I don't want no one pushing into my room if they have to stay." He grumbles.

    "Will it just be you?" you ask curiously.

    "No." Terrance's glower grows deeper. "And the boy."

    "The boy?"

    "My son. Just got custody of him. Can't sleep outside now can he?"

    "No, you're right. Ok, a suite for you and a suite for him. Anything else?"

    "Yeah. I want it underground." He snarls as you give him a surprised look, "Don't look so shocked Architect who builds houses for fairies. I want my house underground."

    You recover quickly, "Of course Mr.Cophus. I can do that." Now the trees on top request makes more sense to you. "I'm going to assume you would prefer that the lot look as natural as possible."

    "Yes. It ain't a park. Don't want no trespassers."

    "Yes, Mr Cophus." You jot down a few more notes. "Did you have a budget?"

    "80K. And not a penny more! So if your people don't do their jobs right you'll just have to pay for it." He says emphatically, eyes narrowing.

    You strangle your desire to reach over and hurt him, "So noted Mr Cophus."

    "Good. When can you get done?" Terrance demands, getting up.

    THE BRIEF:
    • Lot: any 30x20 lot
    • House: 2 bedrooms, two full bathrooms, must have two underground storeys with a vegetable garden
    • Design Style: The exterior of the lot must look as natural as possible, Terrance doesn't want people traipsing all over his lot thinking it's a park. The interiors are up to you.

    BUDGET: $80,000

    SIM CHALLENGE: Create Terrance Cophus and his son Peter, all their traits are up to you.

    ROOM CHALLENGE: Create Terrance's master bedroom; Budget $5,000

    One question, how old is his son? I'm assuming child but wanted to make sure. I might give this a shot, I've made a couple underground homes before (an itty bitty bunker and a Tardis) and it was fun! :)

    Thanks @BuildnShare o:)

    A question for the new challenge: I suppose we can build something on the lot to put access to the underground house, is that right? Natural is not empty, right? :D

    FORUM ID: pronterus
    ORIGIN ID: pronterus
    LEVEL: Expert
    LOT: Bunker 706
    LOT COST: 1,500
    BUILD COST: 78,473
    TOTAL COST: 79,973
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: HERE
    ENTRY DETAILS: Bunker 706 was formerly owned by the military and was later converted into a home, after the military thought that the "Big War" wouldn't happen after all. It is tucked away in a natural forest, hidden from prying eyes. It comes with an enclosed vegetable garden, a military-grade exhaust system, and a former storm drain, which for some reason, is home to plenty of spiders. The furnishings have been renovated to give it a more vibrant glow, a far cry from its formerly spartan interior. The mix of modern and industrial features are a testament to the bunker's origin as a military fixture.

    SIM: Cophus
    SIM ENTRY SLIDESHOW: HERE
    ENTRY DETAILS: Terrance dislikes people in general, so he built a bunker to get away from everything. He is highly protective of his lot and vegetable garden, which is why he keeps everything in the bunker under surveillance. Peter has more of his mom's traits, being his father's voice of reason in most situations. He also does the cooking and cleaning around the house, which Terrance detests doing. He aspires to be strong mentally and physically someday. The problem is that Peter hates bugs. Terrance's traits are Loner, Loves the Outdoors, and Mean. Peter's traits are Squeamish and Outgoing.

    @pronterus -- your build is brilliant. I love everything about it -- the bunker is so filled with perfect details for someone who hates people and would prefer to live underground. AMAZING!

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://imgur.com/a/aymra

    ENTRY DETAILS: As per request, the house is practically invisible blending in with the surrounding landscape. The front door is obscured and locked to all but family. This is clearly a home for for a grumpy man with muted and dark tones. Art is at a minimum as the preference was for more serious scientific prints and emblems of business success. He even hung a warning sign in the bathroom to tell people to keep it clean.Terrance is such a fuss budget he even mops the garden after watering the plants! His son, Peter, makes up for his Dad's dreary tastes by putting up lots of his own colorful stuff. Terrance is a good father, though he is a grumpy loner with the exception of Peter, whom he seems to enjoy a great deal! They play basketball together, watch movies, fish (A Lot!) and cook for each other, Both seem very contented with this very strange abode!

    SIM:https://www.thesims.com/en_GB/gallery/72DF8653894211E78D3D8896DEA325FB?category=all&searchtype=item_name&sortby=downloads&time=all&searchquery=Cophus&max=50&maxis=false
    SIM ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://imgur.com/a/dpqOa

    ENTRY DETAILS: Like Father, Like Son! Both are speed readers,great story tellers, always welcome, observant, collectors, night owls, morning Sims, neat and loners. They are friends only with each other though they CAN mentor in guitar, fishing and painting. Clearly talented and ambitious~ There is a very strong family resemblance. Both are working at improving skills in cooking, comedy, gardening and fitness and Terrance is trying hard to become an excellent parent.
