    Thanks @maryjane2joe, that's so nice of you to say! @jhgkjhgkjh @linday @fidgetyatom and @mannanna ...thanks so much, I'm so glad you like Hermey and it really sounds like he likes you guys too!

    HEYA @TheDismalSimmer! So cool you could join us! You definitely need to be in the expert category, silly!!! Your builds are awesome and I am still drooling over your landscaping. It's always so perfect! Beautiful little tudor! Amazing on that budget - and who needs a non-Spartan gym when they can have a garden like that??? Cool!!!

    @kilra0 - What a cool and whimsical little cabana - it's so bright and fun and what a great lanai with outdoor fireplace! Very cool!

    @wildling - wow, that's really inspired. I love that sitting area near the pool with all the greenery and the low shelf you made with the wall trim. Really great build!

    @bolonkafrauchen - what a cute house and lovely garden,and it's so cool that you got him both a pet and a slip and slide. Definitely fun place for a goofball kind of elf! Nice!

    ENTRY DETAILS: First off, let me say that no one should feel the need to comment just because I'm trying to comment on all builds. I felt if it was for Hermey, I should at least look at each slideshow! My original idea was to go really Floridian, but then I went, well, best priced lot for the build... I tried to keep it fairly simple but concentrate more on outdoor living space

    Dear Hermey,
    Thank you so much for giving me the chance to design you new home! I can totally understand that you choose to go somewhere warmer. Unfortunately, the budget you gave me was very low. But I do think the tiny home I created will suit you well. Since you want to enjoy the wonderful Sim eternal- summer, I spent only a basic sum of money on the two small rooms. Bedroom and kitchen are two –in-one and the bathroom is tiny. However you will find all your needs taken care of. I decided to use a wonderful bright yellow for the living room. You will find a tiny friendly hamster to keep you company. While I did add some decorations, I would suggest you start learning to paint, so that you can give a nice personal touch to the walls.
    Now to the outside. While indoors is quite minimalistic, your garden will hopefully make you very happy. Not only is there a terrace with a bbq, an easel to start your painting desire and a chess game to enhance logic skills, I even manages to give you a tiny beach area by the pool, where you can enjoy either a nice glass of iced tea or you can even mix yourself a cocktail. Of course I included the palm trees you love so much. There are plenty of fruit and vegetable plants around the garden. I am certain, you will be the best gardener of the region soon. You said you needed something to be fit. Well, I decided you will ove to exercise with this wonderful water slide. It is a lot more fun, isn’t it?
    I really hope you like your new home. Once you have accomplished your dentist career and earned a little more money, be sure to contact me. I will be more than happy to create a bigger home for you soon.
    Yours

    @WrathofCath beautiful build, however I believe you have the name of the lot wrong. If I'm not mistaken you built on the Bedlington Boathouse lot.
  • WrathofCathWrathofCath Posts: 4,255 Member
    Thank you @BuildnShare! It's great to be back. :smile:

    @gmcrozier, Thank you for both your lovely comment and for letting me know about the lot name! Very much appreciated. :blush:

    @KojiK - it's there now :) What a nice, sunny build!

    @WrathofCath - this is such a lovely build with calming colors inside. I really like it.

    @Bolonkafrauchen - what a nice build. I especially like the backyard and the slip n slide.

    @Ainsleyf - I really like the shape of your design. And what an inviting look to have open "doors" from the living room to the outdoors. I really, really like that feature.

    @lorrie1910 - the part I like best is the poor area. What a great area to swim in the open and enjoy the views. What bliss!

    @maryjane2joe - I love the water fountain at the front entrance, so calming. And all the windows! Love it. The best pic I like is the one of the artist's view of the easel and the beach view. It's dreamy. Nice work.

    @TresaofPern - I so love the kitchen and the pool. Really lovely.

    @jhgkjhgkjh - when I saw this build, I was in awe. What an outstanding house for the budget. I really like the idea of the postcards from Hermey's fellow elves on the bulletin board as an encouragement. The back patio looks so relaxing. Really nice.

    @FidgetyAtom - I so love the 2 levels of windows facing the back area. And the outdoors is so lush and green. Nice touch of the snowglobe reminder. Really lovely build.

    @linday - I so love the back of this house. It is so inviting!

    @TheDismalSimmer - this is such a terrific build, I can't believe you did it for the budget that we were given! I love that tudor style.

    @Wildling - I so love your treehouse. Everything is so open and airy and the porch and patio area near the 2nd floor pool is so refreshing.

    @kilra0 - This is such a nice house. I love the idea of the fireplace on the patio near the swimming pool. Such a great area to warm up after a swim, or relax on a summer's eve.

    @SoulGal7 thank you so much that you took time to look at all the build! This is so lovely. And thank you so much for for your comment on my build!
    I think your Harvey Wallbanger is such a great character - what a funny idea! His backstory is fantastic and so charming. Oh my... if I were the Hawethorne Poject, my heart is won. :)

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Dear Hermey,
    I was contacted by The Hawthorne Project and asked to find you a home in the sun. After going through everything you wanted, I came up with a house that has everything you want. It is actually 2 houses in one. A small beach house with a wonderful bedroom, small bath and office. Plus, a separate open-air cabana housing the kitchen and living room. And this house is right on the beach. Plus, did I tell you it had a lanai? Oh, it is so wonderful, and not painted with that gawdy red or green that you hate so much. Oh no, this house is painted in vivid colors of the tropics, cool blues, sunset orange, and bright sunny yellow. The cabana is open air to let the cool ocean breezes flow through. Start your day with a refreshing shower and a good work-out at the punching bag. Then, in the afternoon, entertain your guests in the cabana's open concept kitchen/living room. Watch a little tv, listen or dance to some music, or play the latest sonata on the violin. Hungry? Gather some bountiful produce from your vegetable garden or pick some fruit from your lemon, apple and plantain trees. Then grill some fruit kebobs on your backyard bar-b-q. When it gets too hot, take a dip in your own lap pool, or concoct a tropical smoothie at the bar. As the sun sets, paint that fantastic sunset on the easel, and then, under the stars, play a game of chess. Retire to your own private office to spend some time studying to become a dentist, then relax and unwind and sleep peacefully in your gorgeous double duvet bed. As a special surprise, we stocked the dresser with a new summer wardrobe for you. A perfect house to get away from it all...especially the cold. Oh, and did I mention that The Tooth Fairy lives next door and that she's single? I am sure that this will indeed be the perfect house for you!
    Sincerely,
    SoulGal7, Owner, By-The-Sea Realty
