    Thanks @Laebeth and @WiggleyTuff for your responses. :) I did try to delete the ceiling but then the roof did not show, it show sky. Is it maybe that ya'll are taking photos in game and not build mode. :/
    Yes, you have to be in game or 'live' mode to be able to use the camerman mode. Then you can 'page up' all the way up to the top of the building to take pictures inside the building with all the walls and roofs in place.

    Thanks @Karababy52, I missed your response earlier. If you took pick in tab mode then it is in game and not build mode. Thanks a stack everyone for the help. Next time I will take it in build mode. :)

    Thanks @BuildnShare :) Just figured that out with tab mode.

    #BnS84 - Familia

    At first, it was just a slight rumbling. A shaking of the pictures on the walls and the rattling of dishes in Abuela's old heavy china cabinet. It wasn't scary. It was even kind of fun, despite the fear in Madre and Papa's voices. But then a second rumbling happened. This one was larger, scarier. The glass in the windows cracked and the neighbour's dog began to howl. Papa's hands were rough, but his voice was very quiet when he said "Now stay here. You'll be safe here. I will let you out soon." Then he shut the door. It was very dark in the very small closet. Papa yelled for Mateo.

    Scarier, more violent shaking happened. There was a lot of noise. The sounds of heavy things falling, crashing. So very noisy. Papa said it was safe. He was right. Then the shaking of the ground stopped. Papa didn't come. There were smaller shakes, but then they stopped too. Madre didn't come. Neither did Abuela. And the door didn't open. Hunger came. And thirst. And fear. But no Madre. No Papa. No Abuela. Even Mateo, who liked to play jokes and go to the beach, didn't come.

    After a long time, the door opened again. It was very bright and there were strangers in bright jackets. But the house was gone. The walls had fallen in. The ceiling. The china cabinet had fallen over and all her pretty dishes were smashed. And Madre, Papa, and Abuela weren't there.

    You stare at the 10-year-old girl across from you. Her name is Sofia Rivera, and she sits on your couch holding the hand of her 8-year-old brother Adrian. Both have long black hair and huge brown eyes. "They said that Madre and Papa and Abuela were gone. And they couldn't find Mateo." Her bottom lip trembles.

    You nod, "What happened next?"

    Adrian speaks up next. Like his sister, he speaks simlish very well, but with a heavy accent. "The nice strangers told us that it wasn't safe to stay in our neighbourhood. That they were going to send us someplace we would be safe while they looked for Mateo. But the people that we were sent to stay with. They weren't very nice. The mama, she hit Sofia for arguing with one of her children. We decided to go find Mateo ourselves."

    "And that's how you two ended up rummaging through my trash can in the middle of the night?" you ask kindly.

    "Si, ma'am." Says Sofia. "We're sorry. Please don't send us back."

    "Of course not!" you assure her. "You're both going to stay here with me until we find out about Mateo. Do you know how old he is?"

    "Si, about 17."

    "Mateo's your big brother?"

    "Si."

    "Ok," you glance at the clock. "Ok.Its very late and you shouldn't be out this late. Let me show you two to a bedroom to sleep in. In the morning we will work on finding your brother. I think I know someone to call."

    With the two siblings tucked into the same bed upstairs, you go into your home office and flip through your contact list. The phone doesn't ring very long before a jolly voice says "Ah hello!"

    "Hello, Kris! How is Mrs Kringle?"

    "She's doing just fine." He booms, "What brings you to call me this fine winter night?"

    "I need a favour. Can you find someone for me? A 17-year-old boy named Mateo Rivera. He has 2 younger siblings, Sofia and Adrian, who are here with me." You quickly sketch out the story to the sympathetic presence on the other end of the phone. As you tell the story, you grab a piece of paper and start to doodle.

    "Well, you've done so much good for others over the years, that it’s the least I can do. I remember Mateo. He used to try to stay up and catch me for a long time. A good boy. Very responsible. Very loving." His voice turns from jolly and reassuring to serious. "But where will they go? They have no home. From the reports I've heard, that entire village was levelled."

    You smile, "Leave that to me, Kris. How long will it take for you to find him? Do you know?"

    "I will have him there by Christmas," Kris assures you. You know him well enough to know that if Mateo was at all alive, even injured, Kris would work a miracle to reunite the tiny family.

    "Then I'll have everything ready by then." You say, already laying out plans.

    @FaithofKaela Great job, another fantastic build from yourself as always. :smile:

  • glen1974glen1974 Posts: 86 Member

    @Laebeth I also did the Mitchell Glen but opted not to do the vaulted ceiling so not sure if this will count against me or not. Besides I was going to be over budget so had to scale waaaaay back. As a result there are a lot of aspects of mine I'm not entirely happy with. Your build is incredible though, so I will site it next to mine in game as comparison. :smile:
  • NinnsterNinnster Posts: 1,209 Member
    Thanks @glen1974 :blush:

    I see we are competing in the same category too, that's great! Not many have done the Mitchell Glenn, so I was really excited to see you also did it :smiley: I like how you used the stone wall at the front. Looks nicer than the brick I chose :wink: And your landscaping is wonderful! I really struggle with landscaping, so I do a lot of these builds to get practice on it. For this build I am not happy, but oh well. I just couldn't be bothered to redo it all, so I decided to just go with it. So I think we both have areas we are happy with, and maybe not so happy with. haha :heart:

    It's all about learning and trying, so I am having fun either way!

    I did notice you also kept the normal ceiling, so we are on the same page there then! How much it will affect our judging remains to be seen I guess :blush: Will be exciting to get the judges comments!
