    @BuildnShare I added skylights to my build. Do you want screenshots pointed up at them too? Cause they just look like holes in the ceiling in the regular screenshots, possibly because it was evening at the time.

    @Pallystyle - the brief states that there must be planters in the greenhouse, but not plants...
    [*]A greenhouse with a glass roof. Inside the greenhouse should be some planters for harvestables. The greenhouse can be separate from the house. (for Arthur - spring)

    As long as we can see them in some of the shots @TresaofPern, you should be good, but if you can get a shot of them from the interior, it might help us be able to place them within the build.

    If you have harvestables on the lot to harvest, yes it does affect the price, but we totally understand that you would want to harvest those suckers before you submit your lot price. And we would advocate taking pics while the harvestables were around as well :wink:

    ENTRY DETAILS: A modern home for The Climates, i tried to make it "celebrity worthy". There is a small greenhouse for Arthur, a winter themed living room with a fireplace for Nicolas. I also made his bedroom winter themed. An autumn kitchen/dining room for Janine and a nice summer patio with bbq, a bar, a pool, hottub and seating area for Summer. I also made Summer's bedroom summer themed with a lot of colors, she also has her own small summer bathroom. Autumn and Spring weren't easy to combine, so i made the parental bedroom somewhat neutral.

    TOTAL COST: $166,677
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Colorful Seasons
    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted the Climates to live in a colorful and inviting home. So I added a lot of color to each room, though Nicholas's rooms are a bit blue since winter is generally blue and white unless you decorate for Christmas. Summer's bedroom is still colorful but I didn't want it overwhelming to sleep in. Janine and Arthur's bedroom has elements for both autumn and spring, plus some plants for Arthur's love of gardening. I love the colors of Autumn so the kitchen and dining room reflect those colors with a lot of orange, red, yellow, and brown. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a laundry room, and an office on the upper floor. The lower floor in addition to the living, dining, and kitchen, also has a half bath. There is ample porch space, both in front and in back. There is an additional side porch that can only be accessed from the front yard. It has a meditation board and a speaker so whoever is meditating can listen to some calming music. The greenhouse can be accessed from the front porch. The back porch/deck has a hot tub in addition to all of Summer's requests, plus some other items for the rest of the family to enjoy. The backyard also provides ample space and activities for everyone to use.
    I was pleasantly surprised that I managed to stay below budget as I generally have a hard time sticking to a budget. This is the first build n share that i have managed to finish on time in quite a while so I hope you all like it.

Spring is represented by the greenhouse with glass roof and separate veggie plot sprouting new plants and summer is all about having fun on the patio, swimming in the pool, practicing yoga or relaxing in the hot tub.

    Hey! You still have time to go and get it under or at budget! We wouldn't want points marked off for you :( It's a great home. Probably not too hard to knock off §2,300! Why don't you give it a shot? <3 I don't want to see you disqualified for such a little thing
    Money can't buy you happiness
    but it can buy The Sims
    which is pretty much

    ENTRY DETAILS: I took inspiration from the blog posts and tried to create what they made me imagine. For autumn colours I used orange and brown very heavily on kitchen, dining are and the foyer that leads to them with some green and yellow tones here and there. I wanted to create an ambiance that invites you to table and makes you want to sit and chat long after food is all eaten. This is an open plan house so the only thing separating kitchen and foyer from the living room is a stone pillar. Behind the pillar we are welcomed by the cool colours of winter; blues whites and some faded purples and pinks to warm up the color scheme. To make the room more homey and less "cold" looking I picked a couch with lots of pillows and a loveseat to match. Final touch to warm up the place was the fireplace. Through the living room we're going our to back porch that has a colorful seat and a hot tub. Backyard is filled with lots of flowers and bushes and has a medium size pool with a jumping platform. There's a kiddie pool for the little toddler, a hand painted colourful picnic table, a little barbecue, an outdoor fireplace for cozy summer all-nighters, some shaded seats, a bar and of course, the indispensable, a poolside stereo. Right next to all these entertainment we see a little cabin with lots of windows and a glass roof. It's easy to figure out this one, it's a greenhouse! It's actually father's safe space in the house. He comes in every so often to wind down working with dirt or just meditate in the calm environment, surrounded by fresh earth and plant smells... Obviously the mother made sure to have a sink installed because who'd want him to touch all the doorknobs with those dirty hands! We're back inside now going upstairs, we're greeted by two arm chairs in front of the bay windows. On our immediate left there's a tiny corridor that leads to the office and in front of us is a hall where all the bedrooms open to... In teenage daughter we find lots of yellows and sky blues and greens to represent summer. It's a very energetic and fun room to be in! And right next to her room we are finding the toddler son's room. This couple knew what they were doing while they picked the calming tones of blue for a toddler room. The room is fairly empty to keep the boy safe but there's one detail we can't miss... An ode to boy's birthday in winter, snowflakes on the wall... Next to the bedroom there's the main family bathroom. fully equipped with a washing machine and a dryer too! Across the hall from the kid's bedrooms there's the master bedroom. The couple apparently wanted a seasonal decor but couldn't decide which theme to go for so they found the middle ground on earthy colours. The father always keeps fresh flowers on his side of the bed to have a spring feel while the mother has dried leaves on hers to remind her of their sweet first date. This room has a little en-suite complete with a toilet, shower and a sink.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have moved the Climate family into a upscale suburban home on the edge of Brindleton Bay so that they can have some privacy from the curious public eyes, but also so they could have a large outdoor space for entertaining and gardening, as well as a scenic view of the harbor. The house is a three bedroom, two bedroom house, complete with a swimming pool, a wrap around front deck, a back deck, an unfinished basement, and a playroom for the kids. It is Cape Cod/North Eastern style to fit in with the neighborhood. Unfortunately at the moment in my game it is early spring so not all of the landscaping has sprung.

    jojoMOMSTER reads the brief
    jojoMOMSTER writes the brief out on a piece of paper and puts it beside her laptop
    jojoMOMSTER has it in her head that this is a 250k build and spends over 30 hours on a craftsman house for the Climates
    jojoMOMSTER rereads the brief over 60 hours in and realizes it's actually 200k
    jojoMOMSTER crashes and burns!!!! I'm not starting over or having a fire sale for 22k worth of build items, however please feel free to view my slideshow just for funzies if you like.

Through the living room we're going our to back porch that has a colorful seat and a hot tub. Backyard is filled with lots of flowers and bushes and has a medium size pool with a jumping platform. There's a kiddie pool for the little toddler, a hand painted colourful picnic table, a little barbecue, an outdoor fireplace for cozy summer all-nighters, some shaded seats, a bar and of course, the indispensable, a poolside stereo. Right next to all these entertainment we see a little cabin with lots of windows and a glass roof. It's easy to figure out this one, it's a greenhouse! It's actually father's safe space in the house. He comes in every so often to wind down working with dirt or just meditate in the calm environment, surrounded by fresh earth and plant smells... Obviously the mother made sure to have a sink installed because who'd want him to touch all the doorknobs with those dirty hands! We're back inside now going upstairs, we're greeted by two arm chairs in front of the bay windows. On our immediate left there's a tiny corridor that leads to the office and in front of us is a hall where all the bedrooms open to... In teenage daughter we find lots of yellows and sky blues and greens to represent summer. It's a very energetic and fun room to be in! And right next to her room we are finding the toddler son's room. This couple knew what they were doing while they picked the calming tones of blue for a toddler room. The room is fairly empty to keep the boy safe but there's one detail we can't miss... An ode to boy's birthday in winter, snowflakes on the wall... Next to the bedroom there's the main family bathroom. fully equipped with a washing machine and a dryer too! Across the hall from the kid's bedrooms there's the master bedroom. The couple apparently wanted a seasonal decor but couldn't decide which theme to go for so they found the middle ground on earthy colours. The father always keeps fresh flowers on his side of the bed to have a spring feel while the mother has dried leaves on hers to remind her of their sweet first date. This room has a little en-suite complete with a toilet, shower and a sink.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes, please.
