    ENTRY DETAILS:
    In the mid-1700s, the Ottoman Empire opened Greece up to European tourists again, which led to the Greek Revival movement in architecture. With it came the ideals of Romanticism and this idea of bucolic Arcadia--the wild, peaceful countryside--being the Best Thing Ever. So yeah, you could say that the Romantics (Shelley, Byron, Coleridge, Keats, etc.) were the original hippies: thumbing their collective noses at conventional society. Basically, when I hear "back to nature", I think of classical Greece.
    One innovation of the Romantic era was the "haha", a ditch used to separate pieces of land without the appearance of any manmade structures. I took this idea and sank the build into the ground, to get the same effect. From outside, the build looks like just three temple follies behind a hedge; but there's more once you get inside.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Since my test-Sims Sparrow and Storm fell in love - I decided to add a waggon, but first things first... I found the old Windenbrug Island Station, a diamond in the rough. Secluded, abandoned and left to decay. So I restored the old Station building almost to it's former victorian glory and pieced together three waggons of the old Island Line, which are now the sleeping and hobby quarters for the six of them. They all are connected, whether through the old tracks or through the platform and they are a symbol for the constant spiritual journey this group of people is on. Enjoy the Happy Hippie Train!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Thsi group of Sims wanted to disturb nature as little as possible, so when they found a natural clearing in the untamed forest of Newcrest, they chose to build there, cutting down only the trees they needed to and using that wood in their buildings. All four buildings were intended to blend into their surroundings as closely as possible. Their swimming pool is a natural pool, with only enough rocks and flowers cleared away to allow access. Only the flower garden was planned in order to keep the paths from being overgrown.

    ENTRY DETAILS: So my idea for this build was to put the group out on the island in Windenburg. I love the idea of using shipping containers as home and felt the six would love the idea of reusing and recycling. I gave them the 3 shared living spaces. I imagined Essence and Lavendar as being a couple so they share a container with a double bed. I put Sparrow and Storm in the same container and then Sky and Raven in another. They each have one side of their shared containers decorated to suit them. I even put a little stove in Sky's side so he can do extra cooking experiments. There is a shared outdoor living area. A shower area to one side and then a small natural pool on the other. It's a perfect little Happy Hippy Hideaway.

    ENTRY DETAILS: What I had in mind when building this was a place for sharing so I decided not to use any doors and only include only one toilet. When building it I was also thinking that there should be lots of color even if they didn't. I tried to create a lot where basically all rooms and areas can be used to hang out with other sims so basically they wouldn't have any moment for themselves, the only room closest to private would be bedrooms.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    It started as an abandoned camp in the mountains. With a few splashes of paint, it is now the Far Out Hippie Haven, home to a group of hippie couples. Each cabin has been converted to a righteous place for the couples to spend their time. The Purple Haze cabin is decorated in shades of purple with a peace symbol on the side of the building. Raven, a budding artist and Sky, the haven's cook share this psychedelic cabin. Next, is the Feelin' Groovy cabin decorated in shades of green and on the side of the building is a heart symbol. Lavender and Essence, both political activists share this tranquil cabin. Lavender has a small writing area with computer, where she writes a column for the local paper, and Essence, a guitarist, conducts peace rallies and writes songs of peace and love. The Mellow Yellow cabin is so full of energy and life, decorated in yellow with colorful sunflowers swaying outside and a happy face adorning one wall. Sparrow, an avid collector and Storm, the haven's gardener share this space. An addition was added to the back of this cabin to display all of Sparrow's collections. And, yes, she even has a space rock! The main cabin, Right On, has two levels. The main level has a kitchen, small eating area, an outdoor bar, and a food pantry. On the upper level is the open air living room, where Essence loves to strum some tunes on his guitar. A great gathering place to star gaze and dance to the beat. There are extra picnic tables for eating at the back of the lot, close to the waterfall/swimming area. There is also a lovely outdoor bathing area and outhouse. The camp is eco-friendly. All cabins have been outfitted with rooftop gardens, solar panels and rain water barrels. Storm is proud of his small garden which boasts a compost area. There is also a hand washing laundry area. The hippies can occupy themselves with many activities, from playing chess, swimming, painting, playing guitar, reading, yoga, dancing, and just chatting around a campfire. A colorful commune with an explosion of flower power, the Far Out Hippie Haven is the perfect place for peace and love. Can you dig it?

    ENTRY DETAILS: Hippies made a huge change in our world; some bizarre yet absolutely needed. I don't know much about hippies and their time era outside of what I've seen as a little girl and what I've read and or heard. My older sisters were hippies and I seen some things. So basically I made Happy Hippy Hollow because I believe they were all happy and pledged for world peace and unity. I had to rush on my photos because the deadline is tonight.. I wanted to enter and I know my photos aren't absolute... so I am sorry in advance.. and if it hinders my entry; it's ok because I know my photos are suppose to be better..

Raven sees art in everything and loves colors. Storm has begun looking at how to graft seeds and hopes to find a way to create new plants. A colorful bunch who just love nature and life!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Sky gives his “old lady” lots of space in their Yurt for her painting. He thinks she is the grooviest artist since Andy Warhol. Sky loves to be in the kitchen and he is totally stoked to create new dishes using all the fresh fruits and veggies that Storm grows in their organic garden. Storm is a very quiet person who loves tending the garden and the animals. He gives his sweet chick, Lavender, lots of head room to work on her book “Memoires of the Road” that details her escapades when she toured with Sly and The Family Stone. Essence dreams of touring with a band and spends many hours building and playing guitars. His wife Sparrow has a tiny issue with hording .. I mean collecting. So far these 6 have lived and loved life in their off the grid yurt homes.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    In the Age of Aquarius there was LOVE for man, woman & nature! A recent hurricane destroyed the Von Windenburg Estate. Due to their abundance of wealth, the Von Windenburgs decided to move on to a larger and more metropolitan area where such weather is scarce. The Groovy Gang of six eclectic personalities found this to be the Perfect Storm for their needs. After consulting with them it was decided that this private location and coastal atmosphere would be the ideal place for their commune of Peace & Love! Simple construction allowed the commune to take shape quickly. Using the debris left by the hurricane, a rustic boardwalk was added to access the main living areas. Since there wasn't much dough for building materials, the group used brightly colored paint to liven up the tin roofing, porches and railings. There is a quiet fishing dock adjacent to a picnic/recreation area. In addition, the group enjoys the walking/bike path that surrounds their new home. All the windows have some sort of shutters that can quickly be closed in case of another unexpected storm. There is limited electricity so this group relies mostly on lantern light and grilling for their simple life! This Groovy Gang now enjoys living away from the city and the restrictions of metropolitan life!
    Enjoy this commune of PEACE & LOVE where your sims will enjoy their own personal space while sharing in community cooking, dining, gardening, skills & recreation. Artist Treehouse! Writer's, Musician's cabins with a special Collectors Shack!

    The Age of Aquarius
    The brief said – Build a hippie commune. So I did.
    Layout: On this lot, the buildings are placed in two clusters. On one side you’ll find the sleeping quarters – three separate rooms built in a row house style. The sleeping quarters have a slight wagon-y feel to them. On the other side of the lot, you’ll find the communal area – kitchen, dining and bathroom facilities. Also there’s a semi outdoors dining room with a fireplace. The kitchen includes an add-on building, where there’s a study/writing nook. If you go through the semi outdoor dining area, you enter the patio and pool area overlooking the ocean. Out here, you’ll find the must-have bubble blower, seating area and a sauna. On the side of the patio, there’s a clothes line and washing tubs – no expensive washer/dryer in this commune! The two clusters of buildings are connected via the beautiful courtyard with fire, seating, bbq, painting arbor and a small vegetable patch garden.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    My idea for this build was to use shipping containers (I see I wasn't the only one, LoL) to create the main buildings and then furnish them with "salvaged" old furniture, appliances and fixtures. There are two common buildings - the kitchen/living area and a bath house. Each couple (well, two couples, I made Sky and Storm brothers) has their own cabin. What drew them to this lot was the large lake that runs from west to south across the property. There's plenty of fishing as well as a swimming hole. Raven has helped beautify the buildings with her artwork, and there are places for each of the 6 to build their individual skills. See the imgur slideshow for more details.

    #BnS94 - The Hawthorne Project VIII

    The deadline for this challenge is 16th May 2018


    "These days of working from home are lovely", you think to yourself as you sit on your deck, with a pitcher of iced tea and your laptop, your shades just about cut through the glare from the sun but you still have to squint as you try and read the email that just pinged through.

    Please tell us a little bit about yourself, and your family if appropriate, and why you are applying to The Hawthorne Project.

    Dear Hawthorne People,

    My Name is Hermey and I come from a long line of factory workers from up North, way up North. Everyone in my family is expected to start work in the factory immediately upon reaching adulthood, and sometimes before. Nothing's changed for many, many generations. It's always cold. The pay is horrible. Almost all the food we eat has to be shipped in, so we exist on things baked from dry goods and reindeer milk. Seriously! We are basically indentured servants working for "The Man" (although the benefits package is pretty good). We're told over and over how grateful we should be for what we have. It's like we're constantly being brainwashed. I've always been different, been ostracized. I always hated the cold and the factory and the whole monotonous, unchanging lifestyle. So I finally decided to follow my dream and head to parts South. Instead of being supportive, my family has cut me off until "I come to my senses". I need help. I basically have a choice to either go back to where I'm utterly miserable and live a life of mindless, senseless conformity or stay and spend all my time doing performance art on people's shelves just to stay out of the rain. And that's only a seasonal job anyway.


    Tell us about your ideal home space:
    I dream at night of warm weather, of palm trees or trees with leaves instead of needles or fruit trees, of fresh vegetables, green grass and lanais. Oooh lanais. I can't even say the word without my eyes tearing up! I'm open to anything sunny and bright but almost pass out from joy at the thought of cocktails by a pool. Only request is to please stay clear of red and green. I hate red and green. Maybe it could have a study so I can finally pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a dentist!

    Congrats to @Ainsleyf for creating the amazing Hermy, and winning round four of Hawthorne Project Sims. You can, of course, download the loveable elf from the gallery.

    ENTRY DETAILS: To me it sounds like Hermey is very tired of toy making, his lifelong job, red and green uniforms as well as living in the icy cold year-round weather. So I decided to not include anything at all which would remind him of that past misery. I have built him a home which is pleasantly breezy right along the sandy coastline (in walking distance) of the beach. He can step out onto his huge patio and gaze at the ocean or go for a quiet enlightening walk and maybe even start collecting seashells or starfish. I tried to give him a home where he can view the beautiful scenery from all angles while painting; playing music; studying for his future or even as he is sleeping. He will always awake into a very real wonderland and never have to daydream again.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I'm thinking that after spending so much time working, Hermey would want a house that was low-maintenance, so there's not much extra clutter that would need to be cleaned up. This house should let him relax and enjoy the views, both from inside and out on the porch and patio. There is even a fishing spot within easy walking distance should he want to go fishing.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I placed Hermey in the hot desert of Oasis Springs - the total opposite of what he is used to, because the climate is very suitable for outside living and the yeararound use for his new... tada: lanai, where he can enjoy a cool drink. The house is a friendly mixture of modern and a colorful mission. The aquatic blue is a cool contrast to the browns and beiges of the desert and the lush green garden with the lap pool gives him both: a refreshing cool off from the daily heat and excercise as well.

    It's one bedroom, one bath, open floor plan. Semi modern decor. Garden, and pool side fun.

    ENTRY DETAILS: 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

    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

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Seabreeze Paradise has been tailor made to fit Hermeys every need. Light and airy, bright and sunny, this former beachside barn has become a splended, sleek, modern home. Totally designed to let in every last drop of sunlight, Hermey never has to fear dark, cold days again. Here, he can feel the warm breeze on his face, even while cooking dinner or reading by the fireplace (because even on a warm night, a fireplace is just the right thing to make you feel at home). Because Hermey expressed his dream of becomming a dentist, we felt white would be the perfect color for his home. It accentuates the natural light, makes this house feel fresh like morning dew and looks as bright as those pearly whites. Now he can finally sip those cocktails by the pool, enjoy the lush palmtrees, harvest his own fruits and veggies, play the violin and watch the sun rise and set on his very own piece of paradise.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This sunny starter home is the perfect place for anyone looking to escape the cold confines of factory drudgery and The Man. The semi-open layout gives privacy and focus when you need it but lots of light to uplift your spirit. The spacious walk-out bedroom is your doorway to relaxing evenings in the sun. The warm and sunny one-bedroom, one-bath layout leaves plenty of room for a single person to expand, or for someone to establish themselves and start a family! Included activity amenities include exercise equipment for both the body and mind, a relaxing swimming pool with a view of the ocean, a gardening plot to make your own, and the basics for mastering the culinary arts. (As the slideshow demonstrates, Hermey not only made himself right at home, he married the lovely Candy Behr and had a child with her named Summer! The three of them enjoy the house as it is, but I had to take Summer's bed out for the photos, because it's obviously not part of the original build, and this happy family will need more room very soon! Summer's Independent nature, Candy's successful Entertainer career, and Hermey's many hobbies are pushing the limits of the lot!)

    ENTRY DETAILS: Poor Hermey was so tired of the North Pole, so he figured it was about time to move back to the shires where he came from. His old Tudor cottage sits in the lush countryside and has the landscaping to match but Hermey could only afford rather modest furnishings due to his previous job's low pay. Maybe if Mr. Claus would adopt a better business model then he would be able to pay his workers better, but that's ancient history now. Fortunately it has just enough of the bare essentials for him to start anew.

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

It's a one bedroom, one bathroom home, decorated in muted tones, I know you've had enough of bright colours. There are plenty of items to help you build the skills you'll need to progress in life away from the Toy Factory.
    The front garden, complete with some perfect plants, I wanted this area to blend in with its surroundings, so it's nice and natural.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Dear Hermey,
    Make no mistake about the appearance of its austere facade with its sturdy door, this cabin made with barn planks is completely and literally open to the sea. What is better than living by the sea? To live on the beach!
    Feel the breeze and the taste of salt in the air, the sun and calm, only hearing the breaking of the waves, and the sound of seagulls.
    Do not worry about security, Brindleton Bay is a very quiet village with lovely and friendly people.
    In this open-plan cabin all the furniture and decoration has been made by local artisans, and they have the typical style of Brindleton Bay. The guitar and bedside tables are made with driftwood. The curtains were made with boat sails. The bed is made with the imported trunks of Granite Falls that are used to build the masts. I chose a deep sea-colored bedspread for it.
    In the bedroom you also have a large built-in wardrobe, taking advantage of the space lost by the inclination of the roofs.
    Adjacent to the bedroom is the space for exercise or painting, it depends on what you want when you get up!
    Up there you have lots of light and good views to the left and right to capture on your canvases.
    No backyard, I know, the lot is small, but there are some majestic palm trees and ferns on the sides of the house and enough space for you to grow your own vegetables and fruits. Also, who needs a backyard, if you have all the beach and a beautiful lanai?
    I was inspired by the Hawaiian lanai to build yours. From there starts the staircase that accesses the upper floor.
    As you can see, it is very spacious and designed for relaxation. You can eat outside, sit and chat with friends, play chess, have a drink, take a dip in the pool, or just contemplate the sea or the stars at night.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Of course! I always learn from them.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Welcome to Casa del Sol. Named after your wish to stay in a warmer place! It has palmtrees, a pool! a place to lounge with your cocktail by said pool. Various plants in the garden, but not too many, they would probably die in the climate.
    A seating area to get out of the sun. Chess table not to be missed (which I almost did forget...)
    There are veggies planted in the yard, but again, not too many, I believe you are just starting out with gardening, so give it time to grow.
    An easel to take in the view (which is stunning on that lot). A seating area on the front porch as well, to just look at the people walking by.
    Inside there's a living/kitching, a bathroom, a study for you to get your dentist degree. A calm and cool bedroom. And most of all, no green or red themes!

    #BnS95 - We Need Some Space

    The deadline for this challenge is 30th May 2018


    The intercom buzzes and Karl’s voice on the other end sounds odd. Not frightened, more… in awe?

    “There are some… people here for you?”

    Was that a question? “Well, go ahead and schedule an appointment. I think next week is free-“

    “I think you need to see this for yourself,” she whispers.

    You head out to the lobby to find out what could possibly have your secretary in such a state. There are three large men in black suits and sunglasses with radios in their ears. You wonder if this is a prank, they look straight out of some government conspiracy movie. You aren’t entirely sure which one is in charge so you simply address them as a group.

    “Good morning, gentlemen. What can I do for you?”

    One looks around the room before talking into a hidden microphone. “It’s all clear.”

    You are certainly seeing why Karl was a little overwhelmed. Just then a very professional-looking woman enters carrying a briefcase and followed by another man in a suit. She walks up and offers her hand, which you take politely.

    “You must be the architect. I apologize for the…” She tips her head toward the three men and smiles. “Protocol.”

    “Of course. Protocol,” you echo, still having no idea what is going on. “I’m sorry, I missed your name.”

    “General Leanne Harris, SSA,” she says, and you are caught off guard by how warm her presence is. You always though Generals were meant to be gruff. And… old.

    “The Sim Space Agency?” You see Karl’s eyes pop, and hope you are keeping better hold on your own surprise. “What can I do for you?”

    Because you honestly have no idea what you could possibly do for the SSA

    “Can we talk in your office?” General Harris asks.

    Oh dear, you really are flustered by this! “Of course, my apologies. This way.” You lead her to your office, the man behind her following but the other three staying in the lobby.

    She doesn’t sit but instead opens her briefcase and hands you a yellow folder. “As you are no doubt aware, the SSA is researching the possibility of sending Sims to Mars.”

    Of course, you know, you’ve been following the news whenever you can. You just love the idea of space travel!

    “But what does that have to do with me?” you ask, opening the folder and seeing some concept sketches for… Mars habitations?

    General Harris smiles. “We at SSA know that sometimes the best ideas can come from the least expected places. Our engineers can handle the logistics of interplanetary goods movements, material strength, desalinization, that sort of thing,” she says with a wave of her hand. “But when it comes to people, to psychology, we want to tap into the resources available right here in our community. Your work in architecture has become something of a legend, and we’d like you to help design a Mars habitation unit.”

    You gape.

    “Just a prototype, of course. It will be built here on earth, but we need to conduct extended isolation tests with our crew and that means we need a fully-functional environment that can simulate living on Mars.”

    “And you want me?” You only wish you could do your happy dance singing ‘yes, yes, yes!’ without looking too unprofessional.

    “Who better? You understand what people want and need in a living space, how to layout areas for best use. We’re hoping you can offer a fresh design perspective for us to consider. And,” she stresses, “You’re good with a budget.”

    You can’t help but smile a little at that. “And what is my budget for this?”

    “It’s all in the brief,” she says with a smile.


    THE BRIEF

    • Design a Mars Habitation for a 6-Sim team of astronauts and scientists.
    • Habitation must be fully self-contained (there is no atmosphere!)
    • Must include areas or objects for sleeping, hygiene, fitness, cooking, recreation, plants, and research.
    • Built on a 30x30 or smaller lot. No more than 1 level below ground, which can also include a swimming pool (but no other usable floorspace) and no more than two levels above ground. (for a maximum of 3 total floors)
    • This is a prototype build, so ‘landscape’ doesn’t matter, but it should be isolated from other structures.


    BUDGET: §500,000 or less (lot cost + building cost).

    SIM CHALLENGE: Create the 6 Sims astronauts and show them living and working in their habitation. Tell us what their fields of speciality are and their attributes that make them important for a Mars mission!

    ROOM CHALLENGE: Show us what you can create us indoor fruit and veggie garden for your Mars Habitation, plus a space to study all those new alien plants.... There is no limit on the budget you can use for this part of the challenge.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    My thought was that a Mars habitat should have an airlock, which would also have a place to store spacesuits and equipment, the entryway with doors on both sides. The living areas are protected from radiation and sandstorms by being underground. The science lab is the only area not adjacent to the other octagons in case of a problem. I imagine the caution door would also seal it off form the hallway. There are two bookshelves so Sims can chosoe a book from the basement bookshelf to read in bed.

    Because it's now their home, despite the meteor strikes! This lot tho is a test bed to see what can work.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I loved this idea. I tried to put a lot of thought into my build and make it somewhat realistic to space travel and such. I gave the station a roundish feel which is seen better by the roofing. The rooms are basic and uniform for easy construction. Plenty of storage through out building to keep all the supplies. The little black square wall hangings seen in nearly all the rooms was my idea for two way camera/monitors with which to communicate and check on all the stations rooms. The living quarters each have a shower and sink and toilet. Locking doors adds to privacy. Each one is basically the same except for little decorating touches the crew was allowed to bring to make their space feel more like home. Space on the ship was limited so they were each only allowed a few items. The kitchen has no stove but microwaves and beverage makers. Those prepackaged meals just need a little "nuking". I ended up putting the garden in a basement. I needed the space. I put a little furry friend down there for our astronauts. That is where you will also find the water filtering system. I also added a hallway to the telescope to make it enclosed and part of the habitat.

The top 2 storey of the build are designed for the living quarters of your scientists. They key to happiness when living in a secluded area is both space and privacy. That is why each scientist has his/her own en-suite bathroom in the sleeping- area. There is a spacious dining-place with a canteen, which will be able to serve even more people, if proven necessary. The living-room area has a TV and playing features, there is a big gym, complete with a yoga- and pool area. Surrounding the build is a glasshouse roof- and wall system to be let on the Marsian ground, ready to host Marian plant-life. One of the scientists is from Sixam and he agreed to provide some of their original plants to try if the conditions work. The light of the UV-lamps in this section is different to the “normal” greenhouse as it provides the for Mars required colour-spectrum. You also find the observatory in this area, it has been fitted very tightly WITHIN the roof, so that no oxygen escapes and the atmosphere is preserved.
    The whole “science area” is downstairs in the basement. This makes it easier for thew scientists to maintain a “work-life balance” by actually separating work and free-time. There is a big microscope room, a room for chemistry analysis, a big greenhouse for all sorts of fruit and vegetables. Since the greenhouse is in the basement, it is two storeys high and has room enough, even for trees. There is also an archaeology room and a room for physical experiments, which also contains the motors for electricity, and oxygen, needed for the Sims to survive. One of the Sim scientists should be a doctor to help with any medical emergency that is why I included a small hospital ward. Apart from a small kitchen for break time, there is also a big study –and conference room, where each scientist has his or her own desk, as well as a conference table. Last, but not least, the Sixam offered to place one of their transportation devices into the Mars-station. This may enable visiting scientists from Sixam, or if found , from Mars, without having to open the outer doors. Sixam promised to deliver one of these transporter systems to other Alien scientists, if needed.
    The costs were within the budget. But to make things cheaper, the sleeping quarters and bathrooms are all of modular structure. Creating them the same, will make serial build cheaper and more effective. Furniture of both bedroom and bathroom are available in a variety of colours to ensure private taste despite this money-saving procedure.
    I do hope you like my works, and I will be happy to get back to you, if you should have questions
    Yours
    Bolonkafrauchen – designer-
    P.S. I forgot to add, there is a small cupboard under the basement stairs. It contains a baby bed and a small cupboard with clothing and baby-formula. While I whole-heartedly discourage anyone to raise a child under such enclosed conditions, accidents DO happen and the extreme short Sim pregnancy might find it impossible to find an emplacement scientist in time. This supply might bridge the early baby stage, enabling the mother to return to Simsworld via Sixam when the child has reached toddler stage.
    Technical comment. The hospital wing would be playable as a hospital if you swapped the alien are with a reception room. I did not do that, for the obvious reason that the sims insice the Mars project should be enclosed on their own during the trial perod. But I still wanted medical emergencies on Mars taken care of
    The observatory sticks to the ceiling of the “outer greenhouse” on purpose

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    MARSupium is the name of this Mars habitat. It is a fully contained and self-sufficient living space, where our astronauts won't just work, but really live happy lives. Everything has been aimed at providing as much comfort you would find in your own home. Ofcourse there is a lot of technical stuff that goes into making a place habitable on an inhospitable planet like Mars, so all life-support systems have been incorporated as well. Still, the main focus has been to build a space the astronauts would really feel at home in, with lots of greenery, flowing hallways, stunning views spanning all 3 floors and most of all, that homey feel only color, fabrics and textures can provide. I've decorated the living spaces quite vibrantly for this reason. I hope you will like the tour in the slideshow!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Meet our team: The Sailors to the stars!
    From left to right:
    Mateo Mesa, Biologist and Botanist
    Tito Nguyen, Aerospace Engineer and resident Computer Wizz
    Micheal Kane. Doctor, surgeon and bio-engineer
    Carmen Ash, Chemist
    Sam (Samantha) O'Reilly, Mechanical Engineer
    Mira Rey, Geologist
    Mateo 'Bushman' Mera is our Biologist and Botanist.
    He was always kind of a wild child. Running away from home, bringing 'lost' puppies back when he returned. He grew up on his families farm where he helped with the livestock and crops, inventing new ways to increase biodiversity and yield. He never thought he would be able to go to college, let alone university, but his parents and teachers saw great potential in his divergent mind and brilliant inventions. So they collaborated to get him a scholarship.
    As a biology student he once went to Selvadorada to study fire bats for two months. He ended up staying for three years, discovering many new types of plants. Among those was a distinct alien species, which triggered an interest in space. This is also how he earned his nickname 'Bushman'.
    After finishing his biology studies, he pursued his PhD. in botany. After wich he applied for the SSA's astronaut candidate program. His time surviving in the jungle made him an excellent candidate and he was accepted. He never stopped his research and published several studies even after becoming an astronaut.
    He likes rockclimbing, cooking and gardening.
    Tito 'Titan' Nguyen is our aerospace engineer and self-taught computer wizz.
    Growing up there was nothing he rather did than playing computer games. He was a quiet and shy boy, never really feeling he fit in. When he discovered online gaming, he became somewhat of a legend with his avatar 'Titan', winning several major tounaments. By this time he had taught himself how to fix any computer he could get his hands on. Interacting with so many people and traveling the world for contests really helped him come out of his shell.
    He studied computer science and worked as a computer systems engineer for a few years, but found it utterly boring. He missed the thrill he loved so much in gaming, so he set to finding himself a career that would fit him better. He decided to get his PhD. in aerospace engineering and went for a job interview at the SSA, who suggested he might be an ideal candidate for their astronaut candidate program instead. He jumped at the chance and got accepted.
    Dr. Micheal 'X-Ray' Kane is our physician and surgeon. He also does some bio-engineering in the medical field.
    He was an army brat. He grew up moving with his parents from base to base, all over the world. After military school he became an army pilot.
    This however, never fully satisfied him, so he went and studied medicine at the Uniformed Services University. He was a field doctor for years, before he became interested in bio-engineering.
    He earned his nickname 'X-Ray' because of his unprecedented precision equally with a weapon and a scalpel. His colleagues said he must have X-ray vision.
    He collaborated with the Biomedial Engineering for Exploration Space Technology (BEEST) Laboratory and became more and more interested in space exploration. A few years ago he was accepted to the SSA's astronaut candidate program. He has been training for missions like these ever since.
    He likes playing chess and, although he is an utterly serious man, he secretly loves to dance (aslong as nobody is watching ofcourse).
    Carmen 'Hot Stuff' Ash is our Chemist.
    She has always been kind of a day-dreaming girly girl, except for her fascination with science. In the small town where she grew up, she was the only girl in her school to attend those classes, and aced every one of them. When the guys were all going to MIT, nobody really thought she would go as well, being a girl and all. Initially she just went to spite them, but she ended up falling in love with Chemistry.
    Being such a pretty girl, she was used to guys hitting on her. So when one day at work a guy yelled "Watch out, Hot Stuff coming through!" when she was walking by with her tray of radioactive and highly hazardous materials, she automatically assumed he meant her. They were both a little embarrassed when it became clear he had only meant to warn people about what she was carrying around. Still, the nickname "Hot Stuff' stuck, because she definitely was a head-turner.
    She started working for the SSA to help develop quick and easy watercontamination tests. She met Micheal Kane and joined him in perfecting ways to create medical tracers and chemical markers for use in outer space. He was highly impressed with her skills, said he could use her help 'on the road' and suggested she'd apply to the astronaut candidate program to see if she could join him on his missions. Ofcourse she did and now she is the newest member of the team.
    She likes to paint and play the violin.
    Sam 'O-matic' O'Reilly is our Mechanical engineer.
    She was the only child of a flightschool owner. Her dad looked after her on his own after her mom died when she was three. From the time she could walk, she was at the fightschool, always tinkering around with the broken equipment. When she was 12 she could fix anything from parachute equipment to planes. Everybody said: "with Sam around everything gets fixed automatically". After a while they just started calling it 'Sam-o-matic repairs' and her name became synonymous with that.
    Since her father was a flying fanatic, he taught her to fly as soon as she could reach the levers and pedals. The day she turned 17 she got her official licence and started working with her dad, not only on the ground but also in the air.
    Two years later he died. Utterly distraught Sam just wanted to get away from the place she had loved so much, but was now painfully empty without her father. She decided to sell the flightschool and she used the money to get her commercial pilot licence. When she realized she wasn't old enough to fly with any domestic airline yet, she decided to go abroad. She became one of the youngest airline pilots ever. After a few years she met a nice young man, settled down with him and stopped taking every flight she could get.
    After a while she even quit her job to study Mechanical engineering, because she had started to miss tinkering a lot. She did notice she had a hard time staying in one place, still. She was getting pretty restless. When she got her degree and suggested to her guy they should spend some time traveling, he couldn't leave his home... and she couldn't stay. On her way to the airport she was thinking about her years flying and realized there was no place on this earth she hadn't already been. She decided her only option was to not stay on this planet... and got herself to SSA to apply to the astronaut candidate program. She (again) became one of the youngest to get accepted and has been flying missions for a few years now.
    Mira 'Rockstar' Rey is our Geologist.
    After getting her PhD. in Geology, she conducted extensive research in Antarctica and the jungles of Selvadorada. During one of her studies - as a newbie in the field- she was sure she had found some rare spacerocks and rushed to show her supervisors. In her excitement she tripped and fell face first into a huge excavation ditch, losing her precious spacerocks and frantically jumping around to both find them and not ruin the whole excavation. One of her colleagues saw her 'dancing around' and decided to play 'We will Rock you' very loudly on his boombox, alerting everyone in camp to Mira's predicament and earning her the nickname 'Rockstar'.
    One of her fascinations is terraforming. She wrote several papers on this subject, gaining prestige and respect in her community . She worked for the SSA as a scientist, remotely investigating the stratigraphy, geology and geomorphology of Mars' surface for years. When she heard a team was going to be sent there in the near future, she immediately applied for the astronaut candidate program, and was happy to be accepted and chosen to be one of the scientist joining the mission.
    She loves rockclimbing and started practicing creative writing.

Feast your eyes on the Mars Module made by SIS* Self-contained and self-sustaining this place has it all! Enjoy the conservatory, take a jog in the fitness room, or put your mind to the test in the expansive sub level research facility! With so much to do you will never be bored in the Mars Module! And all this can be yours for the low low price of 206,870$! (+S&H) *Sims in Space is not responsible for alien abduction, please read and sign all safety disclosure forms upon purchase!
    Notes about my entry: The Doctors stuff doesn't work its purely aesthetic(doctor items have never worked off of a sims job site). I wanted to make it look like the facility had a medical bay, and i also wanted to make a creepy alien dissection room that's heavily monitored and barricaded to civilian sims.
    The Mars module is built into the side of a pool and 2 small caves can be found on the lot with strange flora! The sub level has a very noticeable rock formation jutting into the room. I wanted to make it look like the sims had hit a rare martian ore vein and then built around it(Like frey house 2. A refrence picture of this is saved to the slideshow as well.)
    The theme for my build was retro futurism which i based the build off of a picture i will add into the slideshow. Retro futurism was based off of science and technology advancements that never came to be, and I wanted to capture the pure absurdity of retro futurism in this build!
    Player tested!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Where to start?? I wanted to make something that felt utilitarian, for the most part, but also added some sort of comfort, a home away from home. So the astronauts got stuck with sleeping pods instead of bigger bedrooms, but I added some greenery behind glass, and included natural light even on the basement level, to try to keep them sane up there. I also wanted to focus on the greenhouse area - and that's where I started and the build developed from. I had fun!

    ENTRY DETAILS: The name 'Things To Come' is taken from a 1930's sci-fi movie. This name will tell your Sims of what life will be like living on other worlds.
    The structure is modular based on 3 inter connecting pods of various sizes. They are designed as pods as this will be much easier transporting through space and they can safely touch down on the surface of the planet with minimum assembly or construction required. The first pod is the smallest and is the entrance for your intrepid Sims. There are lockers provided to hang space suits, helmets and rocket boots. A sink and hand sanitizer are provided to aid the decontamination process.
    Entering the second larger pod I changed the style to be more industrial. Lots of metal is used , the lighting is darker and lots of pipes and machines are seen. I have also included lots of CCTV cameras through out primarily for the safety of the astronauts in case there is a breach of security and something else comes on board....I have also included fire extinguishers throughout and sprinkler systems are installed. The second pod has direct view down into the basement living areas for the crew as seen in the photos. There is also a door leading to the water processing tower. (Water is obtained through the various rock formations on the planet).
    Going into the 3rd and largest pod you enter a laboratory and the same dark colour scheme continues. I included an enlarged specimen jar and my phots show a Sim/Alien hybrid clone growing within- nothing can go wrong right? There are 2 sets of stairs in the lab. Going up leads to the self contained medical bay- it can be easily quarantined in the event of an emergency. Here I went for a clinical look and feel and chose a harsh white colour scheme. Stairs going down lead into the living quarters for the crew.
    The living quarter contains a gym area, a self contained greenhouse , a crew social room sleeping and toilet/shower quarters and a kitchen. I included 2 bedrooms each holding 3 beds. There is a communal shower room and 3 separate toilet facilities. The décor in all of the living quarter is minimal and practical. The only real colours come through in the living room area and a splash in each of the bedrooms. Colour also is found in the centre of the room in the collection of alien plant life and crystals.
    The exterior of the pod units is clad in metal sheets, the roof of the largest pod is a golden colour to harvest the suns rays to power the facility and there are lots of air vents and units used throughout.
    Really I have enjoyed this challenge as it was completely alien to me All the entries are out of this world good luck to everyone taking part!
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please especially as this is my first entry at Expert.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    We Need Some Space
    Build a Mars Habitat Simulation for astronauts and scientists. I decided to make it a Simulation Dome – for testing the layout of the habitat and making sure that the atmospheric technical stuff would sustain the inhabitants, when placed on Mars.
    Layout: The dome itself takes up the entire space of the lot. Three stories high, covered all in glass. Inside the dome there are 6 mission crew barracks, one for each crew member. Each crew member has their own area of expertise, and these are reflected in the sleeping quarters. Technically, all sleeping quarters are furnished exactly the same (space military SSA style), but with different bits and bobs connected to the traits, careers and hobbies of the Sim living there.
    The barracks are all above ground. Underground, you’ll find the common areas, such as a common room, mess hall, toilettes etc., as well as the science labs and other rooms related to the area of expertise of the Sims.
    The sleeping quarters are wisely placed. Via the stairs placed in their sleeping quarter, a Sim can go directly underground and will immediately find themselves next to the area that meets the needs or holds the equipment suited for that particular Sim’s traits or expertise. For instance, the doctor’s sleeping quarter is placed directly above the medical bay.
    The underground level is divided into four main areas, almost like three rings surrounding a core. The outermost ring area is the utilities ring, where all life support/atmospheric/tech stuff is located. Next ring contains the labs and work space for carrying out scientific analysis and tactical, medical, and physical tasks. Then there’s a hallway connecting all the work spaces with the core. The core is the main living area, and includes mess hall and common room, fully equipped with leisure, activities and entertainment items.

    #BnS96 - A Truth Universally Acknowledged

    The deadline for this challenge is 13th June 2018


    From toe to tip, she was the very image of the perfect lady from the 1800’s. Her high-waisted dress in cream silk with a red velvet pelisse, lace gloves, and topped with a brown velvet bonnet with feathers and ribbons so wonderfully framing her older, but still very lovely face.

    She gracefully offers her hand and gives a small curtsey. “How do you do?”

    “I’m- well. Thank you,” you say, feeling so utterly graceless and crude in your manners by comparison.

    “I am glad to hear it,” she says, either not caring or not noticing your awkwardness.

    “Please, have a seat. Um, would you like some tea?” It seems the only appropriate thing to offer, really.

    “No, thank you,” she says as she sinks into the chair with a grace you only wish you had.

    You take your seat and pick up your pencil, ready to take notes.

    “Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jane Moore; I am the president of the local chapter of the Jane Austen Society.”

    You’ve seen some of the movies based on her books, it’s how you knew the time frame of her clothing. “Oh, I love her stories,” you say, not quite admitting you’ve never actually read the books. “How can I help?”

    “Well, I have recently come into a small fortune,” she says, though you suspect by ‘small’ she is being purposefully modest. “And wish to have a house built based on our beloved authoress's time. My very own Pemberly, if you will.”

    “That is quite a large house if I remember correctly?”

    “Indeed, though it is not the size I am after, but the elegance. I wish for a house that will exude the Regency, where I can entertain, keep guests, and host teas.”

    That still sounds quite large to you, but you write down what she says. You’ll discuss finer details later.

    “I also wish for an extensive garden, both flowers and vegetables. My gardener will tend them, and my cook will need to have the fresh produce easily accessible.”

    “I see. Will you, um…” you wonder how to gracefully put this. “Will they need bedrooms?”

    “Good heavens, no. I will only employ one live-in staff member, my nurse. The others will simply work for me. People have their own places these days,” she says as if that should have been perfectly obvious. And perhaps it would have been under other circumstances.

    “Tell me a bit more about what you’d like in your house,” you say, wanting to change the subject.

    “It will need all the basic rooms; a large central hall with the staircase, a parlour, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, library and study, and I need six bedrooms, plus appropriate bathing and toilet facilities. I have a grand piano, so will need space to put it.”

    As you write you notice one rather important thing seems to be missing. “And a kitchen?” you prompt.

    “Oh, that’s all down below the house. I trust you, as the architect, to fill in the appropriate spaces there.”

    “Of course, I will ensure nothing is overlooked.”

    “One last thing. My favorite color is red, which I want to be reflected in the decor, but I don’t want it to be overwhelming, make judicious use of it.”


    THE BRIEF

    • Create a Regency-era house, at least three floors in height.
    • The basement should hold the kitchen
    • The main floor(s) should have all formal, separate spaces and include a large hall with staircase, a parlor, a sitting room, a drawing room with space for a grand piano (you do not need to place it if you don’t have one, just allow space for one), a dining room, a library with study, and at least one toilet room.
    • The upper floor(s) should hold 6 bedrooms plus bathrooms and toilet rooms.
    • There should be a kitchen garden and flower gardens included in the landscaping.
    • Limited use of modern-looking items.
    • Include red in the decor.


    BUDGET: §500,000 or less (lot cost + building cost).

    SIM CHALLENGE:Create Jane Moore and her live-in nurse, as well as an employed staff of a cook, gardener, and housekeeper.

    ROOM CHALLENGE: Create Jane's master bedroom, you have a budget of §20,000.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is my first entry into anything like this. I based the house on images that I found when I Googled the style of house and rooms that were from that era. I hope that it is close to the style of that era. I have used a little bit of cc although I tried to mainly use things from the game.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I'm not sure I've ever put so much time into a build, between research, fiddling with learning the building system, experimenting with aesthetics, and all the rest of the work that goes into builds... I really wanted to see what I could do with a bit more time and no budget, but I'm still really happy with the end result. (I might've invested in a pack or two because of this build) I feel like I've made some leaps and bounds with trying to get creative in making the game do things I wanted it to, like it being the first time I figured out how to hang curtains over a bed to seem realistic.
    I've built to what my research and understanding produced, regarding general trends I saw, from L-shaped staircases, to grand open lawns, and lush gardens (with a love of roses thrown in). I tried to find little details to draw the rooms and spaces together to seem more like a uniform estate - the red room aside - because most grand estates have at least quirky bedroom, right? And, of course, every grand manor is haunted. I tried to default to a more georgian style, which still seemed rather dominant the regency era style, with pictures EVERYWHERE and fireplaces and rugs in basically every room, and the larger bathrooms upstairs. Candles are the only source of light, and I tried to keep the tubs as accurate as I could in keeping with the general style. There seemed to be a lot of balancing of open space with somewhat cluttered decor which I found interesting and tried to recreate in the appropriate rooms. Almost everything is gilded in gold, and red is represented without being overpowering (again, except for the ridiculous "Red Room.")

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is my first ever entry to any kind of real building challenge, and I had a lot of fun with it. Okay, so the Jane Austen fan-woman wanted six bedrooms and there's seven, but it came under budget and that's all that matters. I'm pretty proud of the faux-four-poster bed as well as the basement kitchen and larder. The maze is easy but adds a little extra class, and the kitchen garden is ready to go.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Going into this, I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the regency style, but I soon realized I was jumbling up quite a few different "literary time periods" in my mind.. E.M. Forster, Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse, John Fowles... However, I figured Jane is probably an anglophile at heart, and has room for more than just Jane Austen in her home. Plus, I pictured her live-in nurse as a much younger, more modern girl, so I had to make her living space something that she would enjoy. Overall, I didn't want something too imposing- I wanted more of a country feel for Hartfield; something that might fit into a small village.. if Newcrest were to qualify as a small village.
    I made the formal spaces on the first floor, and decided to give Jane a separate living space near the library and study. The modest amount of money" was inherited from her father, who was a bit of an eccentric, and quite a collector of "curiosities".. . which she also inherited. I imagine she'll spend quite a bit of time sneaking across the hall to filch books to read in bed, or to pore over some rare shell or piece of seaweed in the study.
    The upstairs space is mostly for guest use... so, there are a few more TVs up there than you'll find on the first floor. There are still plenty of spaces for curling up with a good book, tho! And Beatrice, the nurse, is tickled pink with her mod cons... she's really more of a Stephen King fan, if she's going to be honest.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes, please!
    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: This was hard.. I'm a big ol' softie for cc. But I limited myself to rugs and my garden pavers. I also used cc for the dress that Sara is wearing in the garden, but I didn't mention that, since she's really not part of the challenge.. I just wanted to make her! Both are from MTS, the floor pavers are are by Blackgryffin (old grassy floor pavement) and the rugs are from nafSims (Art Deco & Art Nouveau Rugs and Colors & Stripes Rugs) and BibiDoubleZero (Animal Rugs). Also, I used MOO and resizing throughout the build.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have done a lot of building in Sims 3, but this is my first build in 4. (And probably my last, lol!)
    I was drawn by the idea of the classic regency style. I did a lot of research and looked at lots of pictures online. I wanted to be as historically accurate as possible, within the limitations of the game. So my “bath” rooms are separated from the toilet rooms, which are mostly tucked away under staircases. And there are no modern conveniences in the kitchen or anywhere else.
    My build is based on a terraced house, which is why there are no windows on either side. So the backyard garden is divided into two parts, the formal flower garden for relaxing and a separate vegetable and herb garden area which leads into the kitchen entrance.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Mrs. Moore's Regency Era House. I am not 100% sure how to count the floors, so there is 1- Basement, 2 - Ground Floor and 3 - First Floor. Also, if I mixed up what a parlor, a sitting room and a drawing room is - I am sorry!
    I like to think of Mrs. Moore as a widow, so there are some paintings of her late husband (a captain maybe) and of her children in their teens around. In her youth Mrs. Moore was a ballett dancer, the stature in the entrance hall depicts her on her first performance as a prima. She has had the guest bedrooms done in neutral colours, through one of them is slightly pink and reserved for her daughter. The nurses room is more sleek, seeing as "Schwester Luise" quiet likes her modern comforts - there is however a hidden entry behind a bookcase to Mrs. Moore for nighttime emergencies. The garden is well stocked and reachable through a hidden exit from the house... the way from the kitchen to the dinning room is also hidden. In Mrs. Moore's word: "Help is not to be heared or seen."
    Hope you enjoy, I liked building this challenge!

    ENTRY DETAILS: This house and its gardens were an attempt to combine several ideas and images into one. I tried to stick to a Regency era layout and color sheme. The hallways are green because that was the color of the house that gave me ideas about how to do the stairs, entry and ground floor layout. Most of the lighting is from candles as it would have been then. The gardens were based on a combination of different actual English gardens.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Never was a Darcy and a "Pride and Predjudice" fan. I know, I am odd. But I was alwas more fascinated by "Sense and Sensebility". To me the characters are more witty and clever. So I tried to give Elinor and her sisters not Barton Cottage, but kind of "Barton Hall". The place they would have deserved...
    I tried to be as close to a regency house as I could floorplanwise. So I added a servants staircase with a direct door to Ms Moores abth, just in case she needs the sudden help of her nurse - apart from that I stick to a cream - red colorscheme except for the bedrooms which I colored in a brighter variety but still I tried to include splashes of red.
    I took as many pictures as I could, but I forgot two bathrooms on the second floor and I couldn't manage to get decent shots of the other bedroom in the attic, well because.. it is in the attic and the camera glitches there but it is visible in the bird's eye view.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Jane Austen Society president, Lady Moore, has requested a Regency-style estate with not only the elegance and charm expected of such a classic setting, but all of the bells and whistles to match. Therefore, this six bedroom, eight bath manor certainly has it all, including, but not limited to, a sunken rose garden, a drawing room with a grand piano, and a kitchen large enough to cater the most lavish dinner parties in town!

    ENTRY DETAILS: As Jane Moore stated “it is not the size I am after, but the elegance. I wish for a house that will exude the Regency, where I can entertain, keep guests, and host teas” I decided to go for a modest size Regency style house with the typical white stucco exterior walls, black entry door framed by columns and iron balconies. I kept to Regency interior style as much as possible but figured there would be certain features, ie WCs, kitchen equipment, etc, that needed to be appropriate for a house of 2018. There are certainly plenty of areas to entertain guests inside and out, including the welcoming room of the parlour, piano in the sitting room, a game table in the drawing room plus indoor and outdoor dining.

    ENTRY DETAILS: To be honest I don't know very much about Regency and I read a lot about it now. At first I tried to build a house like Pemberley but it looked so wrong without a visible basement (hurra for everyone who done it so well - I'm very impressed folks :o ) so I decided to go for the Brighton Regency or what I think it is :) and also the garden I did twice. After I read they didn't liked strait lines which stood for the monarchy which doesn't seem to be very popular at this time I remodelled it to an english landscape garden and included a folly and popular ruins. I hope you like it and my interpetation is good enough for the expert level, nevertheless I learned so much, thank you <3

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have a love of large red brick stately homes and I went with this as my starting point for the build. I am grateful the budget was increased as I practically used all of it! I took inspiration from a view stately homes that I researched -mainly Goodnestone Park in Kent and also Filoli in California. (Filoli was used for the original tv series Dynasty and that is where I also took the name Carrington from for this build).
    So this is my interpretation of a Regency manor house using Sims 4. Some décor would not be classified strictly as Regency but I worked with all that was in game. I looked up colour schemes used in Regency times and incorporated blues, greens and yellows into the interior colour scheme as well as the red as requested by the client. Some rooms have red as the main colour, others have it in small décor or flower decorations only.
    The entrance leads to a large central hallway with dual staircases leading to an open landing which looks directly down into the hallway. To the right upon entering is the dining room and to your left is the drawing room. To the rear is the sitting room adjacent to the drawing room and the parlour which is connected to the dining room. A downstairs toilet room and stairs down to the basement kitchen complete this floor.
    The basement kitchen has a utility room and 2 doors leading to a front and rear courtyard gardens. The front courtyard is mainly flowers and is for decoration whilst the rear courtyard is larger with space for vegetables to grow. There is also a washing line for all the lined to dry. No washing machine though, I have put minimum appliances in this house in keeping with the period it is supposed to be replicating.
    The 1st floor (or second if you count the ground floor as the 1st and ignore the basement :/ ) has the 2 largest bedrooms in the house both with large ensuite bathrooms. Stairs leading up to the top floor have the remaining 4 bedrooms- 2 medium and 2 small- and all with their own bathrooms. I envisaged one of the smaller rooms for the live in nurse. Also on this top floor I included the library/study. It went here out of necessity mainly but its the ideal place to study in peace away from the hubbub of downstairs. :)
    The gardens I had most fun with. The veranda at the rear of the property has steps leading down into the basement kitchen and also down into the gardens which in turn lead down to a walled-in, sunken garden. I also added a few trees and stripes to the lawn.
    Really enjoyed this build and the massive budget so thank you @BuildnShare . Hope you all enjoy The Carrington. I am loving everyone's builds but time is preventing me from commenting individually. Good luck everyone.

    #BnS97 - A Garden for Daisy

    The deadline for this challenge is 27th June 2018


    You gave Karl the day off to get ready for one of his boys violin recital, so you aren’t surprised when you hear a soft knock at your door.

    You open it to find an elderly man standing there, hat in his hands. “Good afternoon,” he says, a thick accent you can’t quite place but find not at all unpleasant.

    “Good afternoon,” you echo, shaking his hand. “Mr…?”

    “Ah, Lee. Mr. Lee,” he says.

    You welcome him inside and offer some coffee, which he accepts gracefully.

    “What can I do for you, Mr. Lee?”

    “Well, it’s not for me so much, it’s for my wife. Or, well I suppose for both of us. You see, the Missus - Daisy - she loved her flowers. Her garden was the most important thing in her life.”

    “I suspect it was the second most important,” you offer.

    He gives a small blush and smile. “That’s kind of you. I’ve never had much of a green thumb, but the flowers remind me of her. You see, I lost her just this winter, and the cemetery… it’s just not the place for her.”

    “You want a private mausoleum?” you ask.

    “Oh no, nothing like that. She’d complain. Cold never agreed with her, you see. She’d say it was too chilly with all that stone.”

    You nod, but you aren’t really sure what he’s asking for then.

    “No, what I’d like is a garden. As I said, I’m not good with plants and flowers myself, so I’d like to donate some property to the city, and a small fund for them to keep it up. I’ll sprinkle her ashes on the ground. I just need a place to sit, then I can visit for a while and she can feel at home in the soil and the plants. Maybe if it’s a public garden, people will come and visit she won’t ever be lonely. Even after...”

    You suspect he means after he’s gone, too.

    “That’s beautiful,” you say. You aren’t holding back tears, just something in your eye is all.

    “If you could design a garden for me and my Missus, I’d be much obliged. With plenty of flowers, a place to sit, and… and maybe a pond or fountain or something like that. I find water very soothing.”

    “Of course, Mr. Lee. I’d be honoured.”


    THE BRIEF
    • 12k budget. Mr. Lee is donating the lot, so you do not have to account for the cost in your budget.
    • Build on any 20x15 lot, town is up to you.
    • Design a community garden in any style, but the style should fit well with the surrounding area.
    • Include walking areas, seating, some kind of water, and flowering plants.
    BUDGET: §12, 000 or less.

    SIM CHALLENGE: Create Mr. Lee and his wife, Daisy. (Daisy must be a ghost.)

    ROOM CHALLENGE: N/A for this challenge

    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS97 when you upload your creations, any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is my first BnS Challenge entry, and I think I did okay and entered everything correctly, I hope. The client asked for a garden for his late wife, Daisy with a budget of $12,000. I have added some nice planters, flowers, a seating/eating area, a chess area, yoga and basketball court. I think this would make a wonderful place to come and relax while also growing food for your community! It could bring everyone together for block parties and I see parties of all kinds being held here.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I had more fun with this than I should have.. originally I thought Daisy Lee had passed away peacefully in her sleep after a long and productive life.. But Rabid Rodent Fever was just too tempting!
    Albert Lee (Bertie to his friends) is now the owner of a small garden in Brindleton Bay; down near the wharf, where they've lived ever since Bertie retired.. Who knew that rodents might be an issue? The garden has small water feature with a bridge path, leading to a picnic area, and a bench where Bertie and Daisy's ghost can sometimes be seen canoodling. There are also some gnome statues, to remind Daisy of her garden back home and a bird feeder where they can watch the birds.
    The park seems to be a big success; I had trouble taking pictures on their first visit- several townsfolk wanted to get in the picture, too!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Sid and Daisy grew up together from childhood to old age. They were true soulmates. When she passed, Sid wanted a memorial to their life and love together. All her life, Daisy loved gardens. They spent every vacation visiting the world's gardens, but Daisy loved the simple, pure ones best. So Sid donated a little plot of land in the newly formed town of Newcrest in hopes of setting a tone of peace for the little burg. He has left the land to the town in his will, at which time it will become a public garden where citizens will be welcome to spread the ashes of their own loved ones.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Chen spends many days at the park, remembering his dearly departed wife and admiring the gardens built in her honour.
    They were childhood sweethearts born in China and they moved to Newcrest shortly after being married. Sadly, Daisy was never able to have children so she devoted all her time to her darling husband Chen, and her flower gardens. They kept her very happy until the ill fated day of her departing this world.

The majority of flowers are daisies, but others have been added for variety and color.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Daisy’s Rest Park is a public park in the town of Willow Creek (on the site of the former Streamlet Single), created through the generous donation by widower Bai Lee in memory of his wife, Daisy. Daisy’s passion for gardening and flowers has been brought over into both her memorial square and the park at large, providing lovely green cover and bright pops of color for the community to enjoy.
    This is best situated in place of the Streamlet Single in Willow Creek, but it will likely work in many 20×15 lots. Just remember – many of these trees and flowers are not comfortable in extreme environments!

    ENTRY DETAILS: To honor his dearly departed wife Mr Lee donated the lot
    and had a garden for Daisy built.
    I had an idea about using ruins from the get go.
    I was going to have the park in town, but faking a 20x15 lot on a 20x20. But I stayed true to the challenge.
    So what I had left was the Ancient Ruins, that can not be changed
    to a park because the game thinks it's too special. Oh well It did work out nicely though.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes, please.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I went all out here and agonized on how to create what I wanted to do within the budget. Sadly, I wasn't able to make the path over the pond functional, but it's a build challenge, so I've consoled myself with having built it and how it looks. I had originally built a rock pathway, but building a basement to keep it elevated wasn't in the budget, so I went back and changed it over to using mailboxes instead. Mailboxes ended up being my saving grace xD I got creative as I could in creating all the spaces in budget! Including hand-building a fence out of free cubes.
    A small park, though every area leads to somewhere! There's a loping field of flowers to immerse yourself in the sounds, smells, and touch of flowers and plants. A little bench and grave for remembering Daisy and resting. A fishing pond, with a stone path and little respite underneath a cascading waterfall. A 'wisteria' tunnel with butterfly nightlights. And a little picnic area nestled between the pond, flowers, and trellises. Seeing it at night is just as much a treat as the day!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Death doesn't part these soulmates, and to show his love after her unfortunate passing, Bai has donated the funds to create a local community park full of flowers in her honor. Daisy loves roaming her restful new home while she waits...
    Bai is an Elder with average skills and a dedicated devotion to his deceased wife. He gladly spends hours in the park with her, gazing at clouds, playing games, cleaning up after children, and sharing quiet moments together.
    Daisy is as happy and friendly as she was in life, and she loves spending time with the memorial centerpiece in the park, including possessing it. (She also has a penchant for possessing the wastebaskets in the bathroom, strangely enough.) Because of her positive mood and uplifting presence, she spends a lot of time colored green or pink, which goes well with the flowers in the park, especially the daisies planted just for her behind the memorial bench.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I decided to go for Salvadora, because I love all the different plants we are able to use there. Did not think about how expensive some of them are Over 500 for a tree and betwen 100 and 200 for flowers adds up really really quick. I could have easily spend double the amount.... still, the challenge of archieving a 'jungle feel' on this small a budget was fun. Hope you enjoy!
    Mr. Lee first came to Selvadora as part of an archaeology expedition almost 50 years ago. On this trip he met the love of his live Daisy and never left. To celebrate their wedding, he bought the old lot, where the digs - which brought him to this little town - took place. Over the years it became a wild place and a favourite picknick spot for Mr. Lee and his love. Now that Daisy is gone, he wants the whole community to be able to visit. The entrance archways and the seating area are part of the old temple, which Mr. Lee discovered on his first dig in this space, so it was important to him to preserve both. Daisy especially loved Bromeliad Plants, so Mr. Lee asked that they were planted at the bottom of as many trees as possible -> in a few years they will cover the trunks, just like Daisy loved them. To remind him of his home town (Takashima), which is situated on Lake Biwa, ponds on different levels were added to this garden.

He showed me an old mining lot which was totally wasted and the entrance to the mine was closed. "This is the lot. I want you to make it an inviting place again and a place for me to remember her." he said. Well lots of dust and dead earth, I can tell you! Me and my team explored the mine and you will not believe what we found. We had much work to do. Come and see yourself how it turned out.

    #BnS98 - The Four Seasons

    The deadline for this challenge is 11th July 2018


    As you are sitting at your desk reading the "New In Town" flyer, Karl buzzes you on the intercom.

    Taking a sip of coffee, you answer it, “Yes, Karl?”

    “Um, sorry to bother you, but the mayor is here to see you,” responded Karl. The mayor? What would the mayor be coming to see me for?
    “Alright, send him in”, you answer as you straighten the jacket of your suit.

    Mayor Sonny Windy walks in with his assistant, Blossom Frost, and they both smile broadly and come over and warmly shake your hand.
    “Please sit down,” you start, “May I get you anything?”

    “Oh, that won’t be necessary. We won’t take a lot of your time,” answered the mayor.

    After everyone sits down again, the mayor’s assistant, Ms. Frost, passes me a flyer. It is the same flyer that I was reading before they entered.

    Mayor Windy can barely control his excitement and takes a deep breath before he begins. “Have you seen who is coming to town? We are going to have celebrities living amongst us. Oh yes, it’s a family called The Climates. And they are looking to move here, but they need a house.”

    “A house?” you try to interject before the mayor launches on again.

    “Oh yes, but not just any house. I mean after all, they are celebrities.”

    I must have looked a little lost because I blurt out, “Celebrities? Coming to town? Who are the Climates? Why had I not heard of them before?”

    Mayor Windy continues, “Oh yes, they have their own show, called Seasons. It’s all so very exciting. My assistant has drafted up exactly what they are looking for and I know that you are the best person to coordinate such a large and important contract for our town. I mean, can you believe it, the mayors of the other towns are also building the perfect house for the Climates. It’s a town versus town contest by golly.”

    The mayor’s assistant, Blossom Frost, hands me a thick folder. I open it slowly and look at the contents.

    “You’ll see that there are 4 family members of the Climate family. Each family member likes a different season, so the house should reflect the four seasons. It should have at least 3 bedrooms.,” says Ms. Frost quietly.

    “Is that it, just a house reflecting the four seasons...in what way?” You jot down notes on a pad of paper as she speaks.

    “Well, Janine, the mother, likes autumn, and for her a wonderful kitchen and dining room decorated in fall colors would make her feel so warm and cozy. Arthur, the father, enjoys spring and gardening. A greenhouse, with a glass roof to let in the rays of sun to shine on his seedlings in his garden planters would light up his day. Their daughter, Summer, a teen, enjoys, what else - summer, so an outdoor patio with bar-b-q and pool will make her extremely happy. And Nicolas, the youngest is a toddler, and he and his mother love to snuggle together before a fire.”

    “So, let me get this straight. Each town is having a competition to build a house for The Climates?” you question.

    “Yes, that’s right, and the best house is where they will move to. So, you need to make sure that they move to our town,” blurts out Mayor Windy.
    “Well, we’ll do our best,” I say.


    THE BRIEF


    Build on any lot in any town

    Design a house for the Climate family reflecting the four seasons, with the following theme features:

    At least 3 bedrooms
    A kitchen and dining room reflecting the colors of autumn (reds, yellows, oranges) (for Janine - autumn)
    A cozy living room with fireplace decorated in winter colors (for Nicolas - winter)
    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)
    An outdoor patio with bar-b-q, sitting area, stereo and pool (for Summer - summer)

    BUDGET: $200K total budget (includes the lot cost)


    Room Challenge: Create a theme family room to reflect one of the four seasons. Budget $20K

    Sim Challenge: No Sim challenge this time around!

    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: My house was built with a young, rich, modern family in mind. The Climates are celebrities and as such they have a taste for expensive things. My house for them is a modern, minimalist style as I think many of the rich and famous like to live this way. I built it at the top of the hill in Oasis Springs (similar to California - home of the rich and famous) where they have a view of the entire town below them. Not many people venture up here so it awards them some privacy as does the fence around the entire back yard. They don't want the paparazzi snooping and taking photos of the children.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Celebrities hidden in plain sight - that is what I call the house. This modest looking house just blends in in every neighborhood. The midcentury modern style yet is hip and trendy, but fully functional. After all and when they are not filming, they are an ordinary family, right? So I gave them an "ordinary home", but with a lot of luxurious details, e.g. the fenced in backyard gives them a lot of privacy just like the front of the house won't allow many glimpses of family life in the house. But they still are able to reach out to neighbors and make new friends in the wondeful Newcrest community. I think it will help Summer and Nicholas to stay down to earth and having an ordinary childhood.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Welcome to your new home Climate Family! I have built you a Scandinavian styled home based on the homes found in Aurora Skies(sims 3 world). It has been decorated inside in a traditional style with a mix of influences throughout. Outside there is a greenhouse for dad to enjoy a bit of spring year round. It has plenty of flowers and veggies and herbs. Near by is a bee hive and a garden box to plant some outdoor plants of choice. The whole of the out door has been done in a summertime vibe for your teen aged daughter, Summer. There is lots to do outside in the good weather! Slip and slide fun, pool, outdoor movie showings in the weatherized TV shed, grilling, and a kiddie pool in the shade. The main hall is done in a springy autumn type decor to fit the parents as well as the upstairs hall/family nook. The downstairs bathroom also has a laundry area. The living room is done in cool winter tones. I did not add too many holiday items as I felt it should reflect more of the actual season, this was done in the kitchen as well, but with an autumn coziness. There is an open area to place a tree and room for dancing for those times when you want to celebrate. I placed the fireplace in a cozy corner for some cuddle time fun. The kitchen/dining room is my favorite of the build and has some rich autumn influence. I tried not to clutter up the counters to much so there would be room to do lots of cooking. The family nook upstairs has some items to help them get creative, especially as Nicolas grows into a child. Summer's bedroom has been done in a warm beach type decor and she has her own bath in matching tones. Nicolas' bedroom has been done in a winter lumberjack theme and he has his own bathroom as well. Just replace the bed and potty when he ages up. The master bedroom and bath have been done in mainly spring tones with some autumn influences here and there. I hope you will be happy in your new home, no matter the season!

I think I did a pretty good job accomplishing it! It's a fun house, full of color and personality, the individuals all embraced rather than muted. The wants of all have been met (and possibly exceeded), and smiles and playfulness abound. Everyone comes together under these roofs and learns from each other, shares in with each other's trials and tribulations, and still manages to get some quiet time when they want it. The large entry way gives a taste of the lower floor, but still is welcoming and obviously family driven. A space for transitions and togetherness at the same time. The family room is split into two seconds, one for lounging and tv, the other for cuddles and imagination. The dining room is formal and captures autumn at its finest, and the kitchen is large, open, and inviting. The bedrooms are all tailored to their occupants - the master bedroom being one of the biggest challenges, melding together spring and autumn. The yard is landscaped, with still some room for growth as Arthur gets better at gardening. There's a patio bbq, a playground, lots of run room, and a fenced in pool to protect the toddler from accidental roaming.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Reality show darlings, The Climates, have requested a new home with everything they would need to enjoy not just one or two of the seasons, but all four of them! While Spring is Arthur's thing, Fall is when Janine feels most at home in the world. As for Summer, well, her name says it all! And while sweet little Nicholas may look chill on the outside, his heart is super warm during his favorite season of Winter because he has his loving family to spend it and the holidays with! This two-story, three bedroom home features a greenhouse, as well as a patio and pool perfect for entertaining. Just be sure to stay out of the water in the winter! The Seasons are here, which means reality just got a little bit more real for The Climates.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The Four Seasons >> SEASONS IN THE SUN <<
    The Climates needs a new home, reflecting their love for the four seasons. Spring: Arthur wants a greenhouse and a garden. Janine loves fall and wants all the lovely colors of the season to be incorporated in the furnishing and décor of her kitchen and dining area. The household teen, Summer, is all about splashing in the pool and having friends over for barbecue during the heatwaves of July, and little toddler Nick loves winter – with snow, cocoa in front of the fire, holiday and presents.
    Thoughts behind:
    I made a typical desert home suitable for summer and heatwaves – this means pool area, well groomed garden and lawn (lots of sprinklers to keep the grass green), multiple seating spaces on the outside patios, a barbecue and lots of outdoor activities for the entire family.
    However, this home is equally suited for the other seasons too. There’s a vegetable garden patch for spring and early summer and a greenhouse for those delicate plants that can’t survive in winter. In fall and winter, don’t worry about being cold – the cozy den is the perfect place for some family cocoa time in front of the fireplace.
    I’ve included a mudroom/laundry room for when Arthur has been fiddling in the garden and gets all muddy and dirty. Janine will definitely not be happy if he leaves a mud trail all over her floors.
    Of course, the house also includes all the usual rooms – lounge room, hallway, bedrooms, bathrooms. The bedrooms are furnished in color schemes according to the persons’ favorite season, and the décor fits too. Blue and white, and lots of snowmen for Nick. Yellow and green, and sunflowers for Summer. For Janine and Arthur, I chose a mix of green, dusty blue, and light and dark browns, with lots of floral and leaf patterns to show their love for nature.
    Oh … and note the award display in the bar area

    #BnS99 - Back to their Roots

    The deadline for this challenge is 25th July 2018


    You already have an idea in your mind what the young, professional couple across from you might be looking for. One a respected doctor, the other a junior partner at a law firm, their life ahead seemed to play out in your mind like a tv serial. You imagine a modern, minimalist townhouse, or a high-end apartment; maybe even a joint office building and clinic. You have your pencil at the ready to take notes.

    “So, Dr. Chen, Mr. Chen, how can I help you?”

    “My husband and I, we have talked a great deal about where we want to go with our lives,” Dr. Chen says. “Being a doctor and lawyer can be rewarding, but we do not feel that where we are is the best place for us.”

    “We need a change of focus,” Mr. Chen agrees. “Less stress, less… city life.”

    “Oh?” Less city?

    “We have decided to take our savings and buy a small farm, somewhere we can get back to nature.”

    “A-a farm?” This is so not what you expected!

    “Yes,” Mr. Chen nods. “Where I can grow tomatoes, and maybe help the local people with their legal matters.”

    “And I can have a small clinic, and really help change people’s lives,” Dr. Chen adds. “My grandmother used to make remedies for all the people in her town back in China, and the more I live here, the more I think that is what I want to do with my life, too.”

    “We feel this city is too big, too busy for us to connect to our clients and patients the way we want.”

    You nod, pushing aside your assumptions and fully embracing their commitment to a new way of life.

    “A farm will need a house; tell me about your needs.”

    “Two bedrooms, at least,” Mr. Chen says. “One for us, and one spare room that can be made into a nursery if we need it to be.”

    You smile at the thought. “Anything else?”

    “A good kitchen. Health is so important to both of us.” The couple looks at each other. “Everything else is just the usual. Nothing fancy. A simple house in the country where we can raise some crops and help people.”

    “Leave everything to me,” you assure them.


    THE BRIEF


    Design a house for the Chen’s. Lot size 30x40/40x30 max any town.
    At least two bedrooms, and a good kitchen. Other standard areas.
    A good sized garden.
    Style and design should reflect a desire for a simpler life.

    BUDGET: 85K total budget (includes the lot cost)


    Room Challenge:
    Create a country style kitchen for the Chens, you have a budget of §15,000

    Sim Challenge:
    Create Dr. and Mr. Chen and show them enjoying their new life on the farm!


    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS99 when you upload your creations, any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

I am not supposing to say that I have attempted to reconstruct an Earthship, not even close. I'm saying my thought process was inspired by the design principles of Reynolds. The Chens are going off grid. They are embracing gardening not just for money but for their own health. They are choosing to have the courage to live simply so others may simply live. That is not easy in our world. My entry looks nothing like anything else so far this round. I hope I'm not way off in left field with this one.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Honestly I struggled with this challenge a lot. Budgetwise and stylewise. Never have I ever torn down so many buildings.
    In the end, I went for a New England Style Stone Cottage in rural Windenburg. Simple life - no tv, no dryer. Bookcases, a gametable and a garden to tend. I bet landscaping took half of the budget. For the interiors I went for a rustic country design with a lot of white painted pillars and ceiling beams. And I wanted the feel of an old house. Creaking floorboards, odd niches and nooks and a lot of rough plaster.

    Welcome to the Hygge House!
    Hygge is the danish word for the concept of comfortable coziness achieved by indulging through basic pleasures. This rough stone cottage has the natural feel that achieves an atmosphere of hygge beautifully. The location of this cozy french cottage is a big selling point to the Chens; beautiful natural farmland and rolling hills, but just a stones-throw away from the little village where they can work and enjoy the community.
    The building is old, but made to fit the Chens standards. It has everything they need for a simple, slow-paced country life, but not a drop more. It has abundant charm and rustic country vibes, a beautiful natural garden and lovely outdoor living space. The house itself is small but sufficient. We hope the Chens will adapt well to this new lifestyle, it's quite a change from modern city life.

    ENTRY DETAILS: From the brief I took Dr. and Mr. Chen to be of Chinese origin. They seem to have left and went to the big city, and now they desire something quieter and more simple than the action in a busy place like San Myshuno. I took them back home, yet not so far away. There's no where that relieves your troubles and stress quite like home does. So, in the country, there's a cute Chinese style house just waiting for them. It has gardening to do, and a beautiful Zen garden to do some emotional healing. A place to relax and heal their minds. Not to mention a place to accept their clients and patients to do do the same! Such a helpful couple, I feel they can turn Willow Creek around.
    It's a two bedroom house, Master and Guest. Mostly open floor plan, Chinese decor, and a separate office for clients.

They continued to live and work in the city until they both agreed it was time to leave the fast paced hustle and bustle of the city for the slower pace, clean air and sense of community to be found in the country. They bought a farmhouse where Wei can garden between clients and Xaiolian can prepare herbal remedies for her patients. She tends the small herb garden herself as well. Wei believes every farm should have a dog and is working on convincing Xaiolian.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Dr. Chow Chen met Mike in the city. It was a bit of a whirlwind romance when Mike proposed shortly after they got together, Chow was thrilled and even more honored that Mike changed his name to Chen. Chow and Mike were already both heading for success in their fields and but when it came to the most important priorities of life, they agreed that, though they could be conventionally successful in the big city, they wanted a slower and more in-touch life--and when children came along, they knew they wanted more green space to raise them. Dr. Chen is a bit more stylish than Mike, with Mike's style being a bit more relaxed.

Both know the value of practicing their vocations in a small community where they can get to know their clients and patients in more integrated way. They know their "chrysanthemum dog," Tang Tang, will appreciate a garden to explore.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I went with a bit of a modern take on a farmhouse for the Chens. It has the classic lines and built-over-time look of a farmhouse with a metal roof to add clean lines and black painted mullions to add a graphic look to the architecture. The building also includes a home office with its own entrance from the front porch so Dr. & Mr. Chen can see patients and clients in their new home. The interior reflects a more modern take with a little eclecticism and sleekness to keep it from looking too "country kitsch" and with little to no clutter, keeping with a simpler lifestyle and modern living. A large patio with stone walls allows for outdoor living when the weather permits with a seating area, a dining area, and a grill. The second room upstairs, which can serve as a nursery when the Chens are ready, is currently set up as a guest bedroom/office. The kitchen has open shelving as homage to the kitchens of yesteryear but the simple shelves reflect modern sensibilities and the lack of upper cabinets keeps the kitchen feeling open. The greenhouses are divided into flowers and ingredients. The orchard is fenced in on the right side of the house. All plants are perfect quality. The shed includes a flower arranging table and a woodworking table.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Sunflower Farm is a renovated heritage barn complete with silo and greenhouse shed. The barn has been lovingly converted to a rustic 2-story 2-bedroom farmhouse with loft. Adjoining the barn used to be a store, which has now been converted to the offices of the Chens. A doctor's office for Dr. Chen and a law office for Mr. Chen. Both offices share a restroom. The silo houses a tool shed and woodworking area for Mr. Chen to relax and create some wood sculptures. There is a greenhouse shed and a huge garden for Dr. Chen to grow her prized tomatoes as well as several other vegetables and herbs. There are also fruit trees and a fishing pond on the property.

    #BnS100 - Oceanside Resort

    The deadline for this challenge is 8th August 2018


    “Your appointment with Mr. Pascua is here,” Karl says over the intercom.

    “Thank you, Karl. Please send him in.”

    You rise to greet the man as he enters, impressed with his build. You aren’t sure what you had in mind but he seems to be almost a bodybuilder!

    “Thank you for agreeing to see me on such short notice,” he says as you motion towards the chair.

    “Not at all, I’m happy to fit you in,” you reply with a smile. “Now, your assistant said something about a resort?”

    “An ocean-side resort and hotel,” he confirms.

    “That’s quite a project,” you say, but love the idea. This town could use something special to draw more tourists.

    “Economy is up, people want to travel. But they need a place to stay when they do.”
    “Makes sense. What scale are you thinking?”

    “Well, it depends. I’d like something with some flexibility, some standard rooms but also some nicer suites. A pool would be a nice touch, but maybe an ocean swim is good enough? Some outdoor activities, of course. Perhaps a lounge or restaurant for the local community to enjoy as well, especially in the off season to keep the place open.”

    He speaks very rapidly but you scribble all that down.

    “I also want it to really stand out! I want people to see it and think, ‘yeah, that’s where I want to go.’ So nothing too small or too blended in, but don’t let it clash, either. It should fit the town but still draw your attention.”

    You nod. “I understand completely. How many guests will you want to accommodate?”
    “I’d like at least 8 rooms. Three with one double bed, three with two double beds, and two luxury suites. If you can fit more in for the budget, then please do, but I don’t want to feel that the resort suffered just for more people. There must be a reason for them to come, after all. “
    “Of course. Now, about the budget…”


    THE BRIEF


    Build a hotel and resort with at least 8 rooms.
    3 furnished with one double bed, 3 furnished with 2 double beds, 2 luxury suites. All must have attached bathrooms
    Provide a lobby, reception area and admin office
    Provide landscaping
    Style should reflect the town it is built in, but stand out
    Provide at least one indoor and one outdoor activity or entertainment

    BUDGET: 750k total budget (includes the lot cost)


    Room Challenge: Create the resort lobby, you have §50k to play with.

    Sim Challenge: Show us the Sims who are visiting the resort, can be anyone, any traits etc just show them enjoying their vacation.


    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS100 when you upload your creations, any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

Here you will find your zen and you will leave with a perfect tan. With a huge infinity pool, a sea-food restaurant, yoga classes offered daily, a relaxing massage inside a cave, and a gift shop to buy all your souvenirs.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I chpose Brindleton Bay to build in. It's my favourite world and one I find more comfortable building in as I prefer the build and buy items. I decided on a beach-style hotel, with individual rooms accessed through their own front doors and porches. The luxury apartments get their own private space at the back of their rooms and have more luxury fittings. I also really wanted to include and outdoor barbecue area and also a stage area for performances outside at night time, one of my fondest memories of being on holiday. I chose to stick to blues and white but did make some of the rooms individualised.

    ENTRY DETAILS: (This lot was originally built as a restaurant so I tried to make most tables and desks not really usable except for in the restaurant so people wouldn't be all over the place. This is why the family suite does not have a table and chairs for eating at.) Welcome to Anchors Aweigh Resort. A seaside family friendly resort. We have 2 full suites one design for families and one designed for newlyweds. The family suite has 3 separate bedrooms and baths. There are 2 double beds, one single and a toddler bed. Living space, small kitchenette and private decks. The honeymoon suite has a spacious living area with fireplace and a small kitchenette with a full bathroom on the first floor. Upstairs is a bedroom with private sun porch. A private hot tub for some romantic fun and separate bathrooms for those who aren't quite ready to share everything. We also have plenty of smaller rooms to fit any budget. 4 single full sized bed rooms and 4 double full sized bed rooms. As well as 2 single bed rooms. All have their own private bathrooms. You can enjoy dinner at our in house 'Under the Sea' restaurant, relax in the Red Rum lounge or spend a relaxing day in the sun by our anchor shaped pool. There are 2 small gyms on the third floor one for the men and one for the ladies. Don't worry if you have forgotten anything, we have a lovely little gift shop that offers a little bit of everything. Don't forget to swing by the lobby every morning for your complimentary coffee and pastries. We are just a short distance from the ocean and many little fun trails. We hope you will consider us for your next vacation. You will enjoy the stay at, Anchors Aweigh Resort.

    LOT COST: $12,000 (I think? Because the lot is in a destination world, it only tells me the rental price, but both 64x64 lots in Windenberg are $12,000, so that's what I went with here.)

    ENTRY DETAILS: This resort was inspired by Bora Bora. Personally, I can't imagine a vacation spot more relaxing than Bora Bora (it is so remote that it may literally be the best place on Earth to get away from it all) which is why I wanted to recreate it for this challenge! The most important things that I wanted to recreate were Bora Bora's crystal clear waters, the look of its famous bungalows, and the fact that you are never more than a few steps away from the water when you're in Bora Bora. #BnS100

    ENTRY DETAILS: While I was looking for inspiration, one particular image kept coming up, so I decided to just go with it and do my best to recreate it. It also let me experiment with beams a bit more, which I'd wanted an excuse to do. Now if I we could just change ceiling colors, that would have been great. The rustic spandrels weren't my first choice, but they were the only ones without dangling end caps, which looked out of place.

    ENTRY DETAILS:Ok, so this resort got a bit bigger than intended.... I like to imagine that at first there as the lighthouse, the old farmhouse and a chapel and over the course of a few years the owners kept adding little cottages to expand the resort. There are three luxury rooms, 1 room with a single bed, 5 rooms with double beds, 1 room with two singles, 2 rooms with three singles, 4 rooms with four singles and 3 rooms with two doubles. For dining there is the hotel dining room or the lighthouse restaurant (which is also open to the public). To spend time inside, there is a gym and a sauna, as well as regular boardgame evenings in the lobby and quiz nights at the restaurant bar. Outside there is a fishing pond, a huge sports pool with the option of playing waterball or doing aqua fitness courses, a horseshoe rig and some herb gardening courses next to the old chapel. Of course, one can also relax in the hot tub or at the pool bar or go to the private beach on the left side of the property or do a quick hike at the public areas just next to the resort.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Oceanside Resort >> Lakeside Retreat - on Windenburg Island<<
    Lakeside Retreat is a 5-star hotel on the Windenburg Island, recently renovated by former bodybuilding champion, Chris Pascua. Apart from its tastefully decorated rooms and suites, fine dining restaurant, and the famous basement bar, the retreat offers a wide variety of leisure activities (for instance lake swimming, skittles, petanque, basketball) as well as a fitness room with sauna.
    The retreat – in details:
    Nestled in the woods of the Windenburg Island is where we find this lakeside retreat. It has recently been acquired by former bodybuilding champion, Chris Pascua, who has put a substantial amount into renovating the once very famous family retreat. He has now fully refurbished the entire building, and the retreat quickly gained the status of a 5-star hotel.
    All rooms are fully furnished (double beds, desks, seating areas, and tv), and all have ensuite bathrooms with shower and tub. Every room has access to the balcony surrounding the building, and has private seating just outside the room. Rooms are available with either lakeview/oceanview or view of the Windenburg Island Woods – some has both. Standard rooms are located on the first and second floor.
    On the top floor, there are two suites. Both suites are equipped with a sitting room with fireplace, a tv room, bedroom and bathroom. The suites also have private bars. All hotel and housekeeping services are free of charge, and fruit baskets, beverages and toiletries are restocked daily. Furthermore, the suites have access to a shared coffee room, placed in the landing area of the top floor.
    The ground floor holds the main entrance, lobby and the restaurant. Also, there’s a staff entrance leading directly to the back office, which has access to the reception desk.
    In the basement (can only be accessed by using the outside stairs), you’ll find the bar, the gym and the sauna. The bar offers a variety of special brews based on the old recipes of the Windenburg Islanders, and has a small game room with darts and foosball table.
    The Housekeeping dept and the staff changing rooms are also placed in the basement. There’s direct access to these areas by using the staff stairs from the back of the building.
    The restaurant is open to the public, and not only guests. It has both indoor and outdoor seating.
    Outdoor activities: Lake swimming, diving, fishing, painting, yoga, suntanning beds, campfire, basketball, horseshoe game, petangue, skittles. It’s also possible to go hiking or jogging in the woods.

    #BnS101 - Five by Five

    The deadline for this challenge is 22nd August 2018


    The young lady sat across from you looks like she could handle herself in a tough situation, and as she absentmindedly plays with her cuticles you wonder what she is thinking.

    “Well, you know, I really need a place of my own, somewhere without other people’s ‘stuff’ around.” You know from Karl that she is currently sleeping on a friend’s couch.

    “It needs to be small though, I hate large spaces, they feel too, ummm big.”

    You can’t help but have your heart melt a little when she struggles to find a word for frightening that wouldn’t hurt her bad girl exterior, you sense in her eyes that this is not her true persona.

    “So, Faith, do you have any particular style in mind?” You ask her, expecting her to want a grungy, industrial look.

    “Nah, whatever you want.”

    “Really, you don’t mind what style architecture or interior design?”

    “Nah, it’s all five by five.”

    “Five by five?” You ask.

    “You know, it’s all good.”

    She thanks you for her time, and as she stands up to leave, you swear you see a wooden stake peeking out of the inside pocket of her leather jacket


    THE BRIEF


    Design a home with no more than 25 squares in total (your building does not have to be limited to one story, but must not consist of more than 25 squares of living space, total, i.e. adding the ground floor tiles to the upper floor tiles, the number of tiles must NOT exceed 25) - eating area can be outdoors as well as hobbies.
    You may have a covered outdoor area as long as there are no walls to it.
    You may use exterior walls as decorative items, but they cannot be used to add any liveable space.
    Must be on a 20x15 lot - but this can be in any world.
    Overhead shots with grid lines on are 100% mandatory for this challenge, your build will NOT be judged without them.
    Any architectural and interior style.
    Make sure you don’t forget the landscaping.
    For this challenge and this challenge only, our admin will download and play test each lot, to ensure that the homes are playable.

    BUDGET: Your budget is §20,000 (including the lot cost)


    Room Challenge:
    No room challenge this time around.

    Sim Challenge:
    Create Faith and show her enjoying her new space.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This house was built for Faith. She wanted a place that was "secure from evil vampires" The house is surrounded by a moat, large boulders and is fenced in. The house itself is standing on a huge foundation so that Faith feels safe knowing she can see any vampires, or what have you, coming from a long distance. She is the daughter of a rich and famous mogul after all, so her true personality is that she is a pretty and spoiled girl with a love of all things girly, so the interior reflects this about her. #Bns101#MOO#Playtested#mini

She's a little scared of the real world because she has never been outside of the mansion walls before, and she has heard a lot of stories about vampires! So she thought about it and decided to dress tough, thinking that will help those evil vampires know not to mess with her. After a few months of crashing on friends couches, she only had one credit card left that she hadn't max out yet! So she used that card to buy a tiny house/fortress to stay safe in.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I was thinking if you're trying to hide form vampires, what better place to go than the last place vampires would want to be - Oasis Springs! Being above ground gives Faith an excellent view all around. The rocks and water on two sides provide a natural barrier to some threats, and a screen of trees blocks the view of the neighbors to the east and hides the exact location of the stairs leading up.

Sot I tore it apart shrunk down parts and came up with this! One thing I did reuse was the wall bookcase...which led to a problem. When I play tested I sent Faith to read a book, Didn't work. But no route failure. I looked in the case...all the books were gone. LOL

Has a small kitchenette with cabinets, a place to chill out on the computer, a book nook--ahem, well, a bookshelf, a separated bedroom with a tv to entertain/learn on top of the dresser drawers (functional), and a full bath (no tub, but has a nice shower) with some extra storage cabinets. This builder has also left a little gift - a pear tree as a welcome for moving into the place.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Nestled amongst the warm glow of hanging lanterns, this semi-studio starter home is a perfect place for anyone who is agoraphobic or who just wants to have a private getaway with plenty of security light at night. A cozy, tightly-knit layout leaves ample room to move indoors to access life's necessities, while leaving plenty of green space out of doors for gardening or just stretching out in the sun. Garlic-scented mirrors are complimentary for an added layer of security.
    This lot is placed at Comfy Cubby to showcase the way the home being encased in trees shields it from the surrounding neighborhood, no matter how dense or sparse it may be. Lantern Lilac Lodge would do well on any 20x15 lot, but it would probably stick out a bit on a desert lot like Oasis Springs.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Welcome to 25 Merrylane. This is just an ordinary little house on an ordinary little street, nothing to make it stand out or attract unwanted attention. This house is carefully designed to look very unsuspicious, while giving our young lady all the advantages she needs when dealing with vampires. For instance, the garlic plants planted right at the foot of all the stairs, so all but the hardiest vampire will think twice before even coming close to any entrance. The windows have been placed to give full view of the outside from every angle. There are also two backdoors to provide multiple escape options in case a vampire may get inside. The second backdoor has two escape routes, in which she will be protected but still able to see if someone is trying to sneak up on her. This leaves her plenty of options to get to safety, just in case. Sidings around the house make sure no-one can be hiding out of sight or around corners. This little house is safe as can be, while still feeling like home.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Faith Gnomoria...not her real name. She needed to change it and leave...soon. She was running scared and sleeping at friends house day to day or week to week if she was lucky.
    Why the panic? She was being hunted by vampires. Not just any vampires but her sister and her sister's boyfriend.
    When they were turned by Vlad they wanted her to join them. But Faith thought otherwise. But eventually things got better
    and worse at the same time because they were destroyed by vampire hunters. Her running was over.
    Good they were gone but sad they were gone too. They were family.
    She went back to were it all started and gathered what she could to start a new life.
    Hopefully a quiet one if she had anything to say about it, hopefully vampire free too.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Faith is not your average young person; her hidden depths give her a unique approach to life and a need to live close in her environment. That said, when she DOES make friends, she makes them for life.
    Faith quickly cultivated a mastery of vampire lore out of necessity, but she’s otherwise skilled like any independent, single, young person out on their own. She maintains an excellent level of fitness and well-being (including a fondness for hydrating with orange juice to stave off illness), and she’s quickly working her way up through skills that will help her survive on her own and manage her own home. She’s secretly afraid of thunderstorms, though she will occasionally step outside to yell choice words at the rain when it persists for hours or days and interrupts her exercise schedule.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Yay, a small build! Guess I got lucky there, seeing as I only have this morning (meaning the last three hours) to finish this challenge before I don't have access to the game for the next five weeks
    I decided to build a trailer for Faith - she seemed a bit scared of something, so if she gets uncomfortable on her current lot she can just up and move to another one. Just i case it's vampires, i gave her a little seed package and some planters, maybe she'll plant some garlic. The trailer has a combined kitchen / living area with plenty of storage and a small but comfortable sleeping space right next to the living area. Ther also is a TV to keep up with the current news. A full bathroom at the front of the trailer rounds up the indoor space. Under the covered outdoor space - something we call a 'Vorzelt' in germany (i.e. caravan awning?!?) - there is an outdoor cooking area and some seating. In the garden I added a firepit for burning all those pesky little monsters/vampires, just in case one catches up to Faith and she needs to hide the evidence.
    I do hope putting the covered outdoor space right next to the trailer is ok, seeing as that kinda leads to the outdoor space having a wall. I tried leaving a gap, but that just looked weird...

    FIVE BY FIVE ~ 25 Squares Lane ~
    25 Squares Lane is a small house in a blue and white color scheme. It has two separate buildings, which are connected by a roofed outdoor dining area. One building holds living room and kitchen, and the other building has the bedroom and bathroom. Each building is 12.5 squares, equaling a total of 25 squares. From the roofed dining area, there is access to the garden patio.
    The garden has cherry trees and flowers lining the fence, which cozily lights up at night time, making it possible to practice yoga both day and night.
    There’s also a small gardening patch on the backside of the house – with bluebells and cherry trees. The front of the house has a small stony pathway going from the curbside to the front door, and the front yard is nicely decorated with trees and flowers.
    NOTE: Due to budget limits, I had to replace some items, after I took the screenshots. I have replaced the dining table on the roofed patio and removed some of the pillars in the fence in the backyard.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Southwestern Starter is a little Spanish-style home in the desert, which has been specifically built to ward off the creatures of the night. The main house is a split-level with a walled patio out front. Here, Faith can enjoy playing a game of Don't Wake the Llama with friends. To guard against any vampires, a garlic-scented mirror has been placed inside the front door. Once inside there is an open-concept living room, reading nook, bedroom and a private bathroom. A small flight of stairs leads to the sunken kitchen, which separates the main area from the cooking area. A side door, convenient to the kitchen, leads to an outdoor terrace dining area shaded by overhead rafters. There is also a stereo and tv in this area. Heading out back is a circular patio shaded by palm trees. In the back left-hand side, there is a garden planter planted with onions (I don't have the vampire pack, so let's pretend it's garlic), a woodworking table in the center (for crafting all those wooden stakes) and a punching bag on the right for Faith to keep in shape. A small flower garden and fountain (filled with holy water) frame the back wall. In the right-hand corner, there is also a bonfire. To stay refreshed in the heat, there is a small swimming pool near the outdoor eating area. This is truly the ideal world and house to keep Faith safe.

Inside you will find a bookcase, computer, TV and stereo. Outside you will find a pool, a chess table under the mesquite tree and a raised planter box, where Faith can plant some garlic plants. I chose to do a natural landscaping to blend in with the neighborhood.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Well, it's small! I wanted to give Faith a double bed, so I might have given myself an extra challenge there, but it worked out. There's a TV and a bookshelf for entertainment, and there's exercise equipment out back. The kitchen is fully useable, and there's both and indoor and an outdoor dining table for two. The lot has been playtested for a surprisingly high number of days.

My layout has 4x6+1 plus the covered porch. I combined soft colors in wood furniture and curtains with vibrant and fresh colors in other textiles and decoration elements. I tried to add the maximun of comfort and activities to this lot and reflect how the tiny houses community feel in RL. I built it in New Crest, at the Oak Alcove Lot, because you have a BBQ area behind it and your sim always can eat for free LOL. I enjoyed a lot play testing it And my sim too

The kitchen is small, and needs a little work, but it has everything necessary. There is also a small bathroom. The home is perfect for a first time buyer! The property has plenty of tropical flowers and trees, and the real seller of this home is the beautiful back patio where one can enjoy a late evening meal with friends, or have a swim in the pool.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I was inspired by Faith as the character from the tv show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Remembering where she lived in the show, I went for a grungy, slightly grimy place. Therefore I picked the harbour area of Brindleton Bay. I also have this vague recollection that purple was her favourite colour, next to black, at least she wore both colours a lot in her outfits lolz. So that became my colour scheme for the interior of the house. Faith is a tough cookie, but in the show she also had a softer side. So in the interiors I also included that in the shape of a few stuffed animals and toys reminding her of her youth. Apart from that, I also wanted the lot to be practical for a vampire slayer. There's a workout area in the backyard, place for her car, a spot for gardening (with already a few garlic plants in place, cause you know, vampire slayer ). Inside is a computer and bookcase for research, a tv for relaxing and a basic but practical kitchen and bathroom.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The name & colors I gave Faith’s new home have significance. In my eyes, her life resembles lyrics from the song, Blue on Black by Kenny Wayne Shepherd. I put her story in a spoiler, so you can skip it if you want. It’s just a little something I quickly thought up, probably full of plot holes. But it was fun to write anyway.
    Faith & her boyfriend, Jon, were once the picture perfect couple until one day he disappeared. She was distraught, angry and confused, wondering what could have happened to him. She along with help from friends, family and the authorities searched for him, but he was nowhere to be found. The Police believed he had left under his own free will and soon dropped the case.
    Faith refused to believe he’d willingly left her and continued to search on her own when family and friends also abandoned searching, secretly siding with the Police.
    Arriving home late one evening after another futile day of searching, Faith was horrified to discover her entire family had been brutally killed by what must’ve been some kind of animal judging by the condition of their mutilated bodies.
    The Police theorized a cougar or perhaps a bear had come down from the mountains of Windenberg, became disoriented, lost and eventually hunger drove them to attack humans for food. They also now believed Jon could’ve perhaps been dragged away and eaten too. They advised her to lock her doors and left promising to issue an all-points bulletin to be on the lookout for any wild animals not indigenous to the area.
    Late that night Faith lay sobbing in bed when she heard something strike a nearby window. Watching carefully she saw a pebble bounce off the glass and got up to investigate. She gasped in disbelief to see Jon smiling back at her gesturing toward the front door to be let in.
    Faith quickly raced to unlock the door and opened it wide, but stopped short of letting him in. Despite needing the comfort of his love and being so happy he was alive, she wanted to find out what had happened to him first. He looked fine except a bit pale and his clothes were muddy, torn and stained with…something. Had he been in an accident?
    He told her an unbelievable tale of going for a walk and being robbed, kidnapped, caged, starved and beaten by assailants wearing Ski masks. He said only thoughts of her and their love gave him the will to survive and eventually escape to come back to her, his one true love.
    He begged her to believe him, shivering from the chilly autumn night air, and asked if he could come inside to warm up. Searching his face for truth, Faith decided to believe him and reached over the threshold intending to pull him inside.
    She jumped back, rearing her head in confusion when he refused to be pulled inside the house and said she had to invite him in.
    “But why?” She asked.
    He only snarled at her saying, “Just do it!”
    When Faith raised her eyebrows at his harsh tone of voice, he softened it to a pitiful plea instead. “Please? I’m just so hungry!”
    The inexplicable feeling of fear filled Faith’s entire being when she noticed Jon’s eyes were slightly glowing red.
    “Why are your eyes glowing? What really happened to you?” Faith whispered.
    “What? You’re just seeing things, I told you what happened, now, come on Faith, invite me in!”
    “I don’t believe you. I think you should leave.”
    “You’re sending me away? Don’t you love me anymore? How can you be so cruel after I just told you what I’ve been through? I’m all you have left now,” he chastised.
    Alarm bells rang loudly in Faith’s head. How could he know she was all alone in the world now if what he said was true?
    “How do you know that?”
    “Faith, look into my eyes and you’ll see. Everything will be alright now, okay? Just invite me in and we can be together again, forever.”
    “NO. You haven’t explained yourself and you’re acting very weird. I don’t even want to look at you right now. I just lost my family, which you somehow seem to know about. Just… go away.”
    Faith turned her back on Jon and pointed towards the street making her wishes clear. Jon began growling low his throat causing Faith to whip her head around and gape at his face which had transformed into something terrifying, like…a…beast. Oh My God! HE had killed her family and came back intending to kill her too. She just knew it!
    Slamming the door in his handsome face, Faith ran upstairs to her Parents’ bedroom to retrieve the pistol her Father kept in a nightstand. Jon hadn’t come back out of love, he had lied.
    Grabbing the loaded gun she quickly ran back to the front door and threw it open, aiming the gun at Jon’s chest. He was still in the exact spot as before, looking at her with the saddest eyes she’d ever seen.
    “Don’t do this Faith. It won’t work anyway and just make a big mess. I didn’t mean to do it. I only wanted to see you, but, I was just so hungry. I couldn’t help myself. You have to let me explain.”
    “You didn’t MEAN to kill them? How does that make any sense? They loved you, I loved you. How could you do that? Who are you? WHAT are you?”
    “I am Vampire and I will always love you,” he said and then disappeared in a blindingly fast blur, like some kind of cartoon character.
    Stunned, Faith collapsed to the floor and dropped the gun. She sat there for a long time with hands covering her face and wept.
    Since then Faith has tried to learn everything she can about Vampires, but she still has a lot to discover. She knows that Jon will come back again for her and when he does, she’ll be ready. She loved him, and a part of her always will. But, she can’t forgive him for murdering her family and his heartbreaking lies of love.
    He has to pay…
    I wanted to build a two story house for Faith right from the beginning. I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but I love a challenge. I originally had the stairs inside the house, but put them outside when I realized there just wasn’t enough room for everything. Downstairs includes; a garlic scented mirror just inside the front door, a tiny living room area with a TV & bookcase, a full kitchen which includes a dishwasher and a miniscule bathroom featuring a shower and commode.
    Upstairs is accessible by a staircase around the back of the house. They’re purposely designed to be creaky so she can hear anything, man or beast, coming up them. A braid of garlic hangs above the door to ward off any unwanted and/or unliving visitors. Faith’s bedroom includes a single bed, dresser and standing mirror.
    Outside landscaping includes; a mini fountain, umbrella covered table & four chairs, a loveseat/bench underneath the staircase, fishing pond, easel, windchimes and a birdbath. I wanted Faith’s new home to feel secure, yet have a peaceful, serene and beautiful area to spend time outdoors during the daytime.
    First Floor = 17 tiles

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Faith came to earth at a young age. She grew up in a loving human family. Her world changed however when her mother was brutally murdered by a vampire. This left her with a deep seeded hate for the vampire culture. Scared the ones behind her mothers death would come for her, Faith ran away. She tends to keep to herself and has developed a distrust of others. If needed though she will fight back. To more easily move unseen among others she uses a human disguise which is kept as plain and inconspicuous as possible so as to avoid attention. The drawback of this disguise is that it doesn't cover up her alien tattoos. For this reason she tries to cover them up with clothing.

    ENTRY DETAILS: As for my build, I was inspired by the character Faith from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv show. Faith is a tough, no nonsense slayer with a dark streak when she's pushed too far. But on the other side she is also a young girl who's been given a lot of responsibility, so inside her she also has a softer side. I based most of her outfits on what I remember from the tv show. Her outfits consist mostly out black and purple colours, with a bit of silver and red thrown in there, together with blue for jeans. She also wore a lot of simple, yet tight tops, so she got those as well. As for make up, she mostly only had dark lipstick and eyeliner on, never anything too fancy. For her swim wear and sleep wear, I had to wing it a bit more, as they never were on the show lolz, so hopefully they fit in with the rest. Also, my sim doesn't really look like the actress portraying Faith (not really good at celebrity sims ), but I do hope her character comes across. I gave her the traits Loner (as being a slayer is a secret, it's a lonely life), Self-Assured (she's tough this one) and Athletic (quite necessary if you want to face plenty of vamps )

    #BnS102 - The Hawthorne Project Part VIIII

    The deadline for this challenge is 12th September 2018


    You are reading the local section of your online newsfeed when an article grabs your eye.

    “Local Philanthropist and Old Time Movie Starlet Passes Away.”

    Reading on:

    “Ms Emmeline Hawthorne passed away peacefully at her home last night. Ms Hawthorne was quite the startle back in Starlight Shores during the roaring 20’s. At 110, she was Willow Creek’s oldest resident. As far as we are aware, she leaves no family with which to bestow her substantial legacy and we expect this to be handed over to the residential housing initiative The Hawthorne Project with which her name has become synonymous.”

    Stunned, you sit back in your chair, you can feel tears welling behind your eyes, but you put it down to the harsh sunlight blinding you and you raise your hand to shade your eyes. You can’t quite believe that Ms Hawthorne has actually died. You, mistakenly, thought she would outlive everyone in this town through sheer strength of will. You can’t help thinking of her illegitimate son, who has no idea that his birth mother has passed away. But, you were sworn to secrecy, so there is nothing that you can do, only hope that Kieran will somehow be remembered in her will in some small way.

    As you sit lost in thought a ping from your laptop brings you back to the present.

    You look at the sender's address, The Hawthorne Project.

    Warily, you open the email, unsure as to what will happen to, perhaps, the favourite part of your job. What you read next sends shivers down your spine.

    “My Dear,

    It seems that I have passed on from this world, I asked dear Mammy to ensure that you receive this note on my death.

    I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your help in soothing an old woman’s conscience. Watching the homes go up for all those poor souls who so badly needed a second chance in life has greatly lifted my spirits, I can tell that your Grandmother would have finally been proud of me as well.

    The Hawthorne Project must continue long after I am buried and forgotten about. And no, I need no consolitary words that I will always be remembered, I know how fickle people are. As long as The Project is remembered and revered, I will be happy. So, I have instructed my attorney to adjust my will and leave half of my estate to you, on the proviso that you take over the running of The Project. There is no one else I could trust to carry on with this project the way in which we envisioned it..

    You will be pleased to know that I have left provisions in my will to ensure that Kieran and his family are well looked after, I am still not willing to be completely honest, but now that I am gone, I don’t get much say in the matter do I? If my dear boy does find out the truth, I know that I can trust you to be there for him and his family, and that you can try to explain to him why I made the most difficult decision of my entire life, the day I decided to give his father up for adoption.

    Well, I trust that you have a vast amount of work to do, I believe that there is another well deserving client awaiting your help. So goodbye my dear, live your life to the fullest, enjoy each and every day and don’t miss out on any opportunities for fun!

    Yours,

    Emmeline”

    You sit back in your chair, truly stunned this time. There are thoughts whizzing around your head and you have no idea what they are, where they came from or indeed what to do with them. You go to press the intercom to ask Karl to come in, before realising that you are at home and that Karl is at least 5 kilometers away. Your mind is still whirling when you notice the attachment that was appended to the email. Opening it you see the details of the next Hawthorne Project recipient.


    Name: Harvey Wallbanger
    Traits: Slob, Lazy, Goofball
    M/F/TG: M
    Aspiration: Serial Romantic
    Occupation (Or Former Occupation): Former apartment superintendent

    Please tell us a little bit about yourself, and your family if appropriate, and why you are applying to The Hawthorne Project.

    Dear Hawthorne People,
    My name is Harvey Wallbanger and I used to work as an apartment superintendent in San Myshuno. Yah, I know, you think I was named after a drink, but that is not the case. My family has been in the apartment superintendent maintenance business for years, and the name "Wallbanger" is our trademark because we are always banging on the walls, fixing things with our hammers and fiddling with electrical things. I really didn't want to follow in my family's footsteps. I wanted to branch out, be a rebel, but when I found out you got a free furnished apartment, heck, I was in!

    Life was good. Oh yah, in my younger years, I was known as quite the ladies man. In my blue tux, I was a head-turner. I still have that blue tux and wear it sometimes when I go out to some fancy, smancy restaurant, and I am still a head turner, although I often hear sims chuckling when I walk through the door. Youngins', they know nothing. Well, what I was trying to say was that the ladies loved me, but I never found that "someone special"..know what I mean. I kind of wanted to give all the gals a chance at me, you know. So, yes, I am still single and available. I know, hard to believe.

    Well, everything was going great, I had worked for the Llamarcins apartment building for nearly 30 years. Yep, count them. 30 years at one job! Can you believe it? All the neighbors just loved me and were always bringing me things, like gourmet fruitcake, to thank me for rescuing their goldfish from the toilet, you know, normal things superintendents do. Well, then I get this letter the other day, that the Llamarcins apartment building was going to be sold to some highfalutin bigshot who is going to renovate all these old, historic apartments into modern, new condos. And, get this, they don't want me to be part of the "new" look. They said I was dated....more like stale dated.

    So, here I am nearing retirement with no job, nowhere to live, no one to give me gourmet fruitcake and no furniture even. I have no idea what to do. I've tried to find a new job, but even though I have years of experience, they all want someone "younger", more hip and with-it and computer literate with their new fangled on-line security systems. So, I am writing to you, dear Hawthorne People for help.

    Tell us about your ideal home space:
    You know I've been thinking that maybe down south in one of those "over 55" retirement communities would be ideal. You know what I mean...be in charge of a mobile home park. One level. I have had it with stairs and elevators. And decorate my outdoor space like I want with a plastic flamingo or 2. Yah, that's the ticket. There are always sims needing some help with something and I heard that there are a lot of lady sims living in these places just looking for a single, handy guy like me. Maybe it's time for me to settle down. Oh yah and those places have community centers right in the complex, too, with things like card games, and dances, and even bar-b-qs. Can't remember the last time I had a bar-b-q 'cause of the fire code, they weren't allowed in apartments. And movie nights under the stars...with an outdoor big screen tv...I can see it now...just like those drive-in movie theatres I used to love. Ahhh....that would be the life. Well, thanks for reading and I hope you can help me. Park benches are getting awfully hard to sleep on.

    Harvey - always ready to fix something wearing his trusty tool belt.
    Harvey's middle name is Sparky. I wonder how he got that...
    The last look of Harvey in his apartment. He has nowhere to go.
    Look at this face. How can you say no?

    This is Ms Hawthorne’s Swan Song, the last client that she will personally choose, as such the budget will be adjusted accordingly


    THE BRIEF


    Create an over 55’s retirement complex on one with at least 5 units (3 doubles and 2 singles)
    Each apartment/trailer must have the usual Hawthorne Project accoutrements; chess table, PC, piece of fitness equipment (not a yoga mat), easel and one musical instrument.
    Harvey’s apartment/trailer must have flamingos in the yard
    Ensure that there is a community center on the lot, with card game, somewhere to dance, BBQ and a setup for watching movies under the stars.
    There must also be a community garden for growing fruits, veggies and flowers.

    BUDGET: Your budget is §600,000 (including the lot cost)


    Room Challenge:

    Create Harvey's trailer, see this tutorial for making 'apartments', i.e. being able to upload more than one room as one room. Your budget for the room challenge is §50,000.

    Sim Challenge:
    No Sim challenge this time around, but why not take a stab at your own entry to the next phase of the Hawthorne Project: Sims.

    TL;DR - I had distinct personalities for the residents of each trailer in mind as I built and decorated them.
    As well as Harvey, there's Mina and Trevor Wallace, a couple who have been married for 48 years and are still very much in love - they just want their own trailer and their own space now that they're retired and both at home all day! Mina likes gardening (she's been looking after Harvey's garden, since she can't bear opening her curtains in the morning and seeing a messy lot). Trevor likes fishing (Mina HATES the smell of fish).
    Then there's Ricky Finnsbury. He's not great at looking after his trailer, but he is great on the DJ decks. Shame the other residents don't share his taste in music!
    Maggie and Millie Taylor are sisters who live in the last trailer. It's big... but it might not be quite big enough for two people who are so different, especially when one's a neat freak and the other.... isn't. At all.

Due to new technology, all trailers are secured below ground level, so there are no stairs to hinder Harvey or any disabled Sim! He has added responsibilities, but his new home has plenty of perks because he was given the model/admin trailer. And this is only the beginning phase of the park, which is slated to hold nearly 30 trailers in all. Harvey will have plenty of ladies to "help."

    ENTRY DETAILS: I thought trailers at first and then an idea struck me why not join trailer-like units together connected by a common area...under a dome. To make it look right I made seven units and then the fun began. The yards were a trip and find a place for the community garden, BBQ and movies were fun too. The rolls I used on the two separate walls out front may drop to the ground and the columns there disappear. Grrr. BUT It all came together and took longer than I thought (maybe trailers was a better idea?)
    Oooops no inside close ups...oh well. Too late for that.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Okay. I wanted to keep the park colorful and fun yet updated and sophisticated. Every pull behind trailer has its own yard and bbq area and matching landscaping. Community Center has everything required plus some extras like a pool and kids room. Trailer one belongs to _______, I designed it with a softer tone to attract future girlfriends and match the flamingos. I tried to keep the crisp, clean, modern look throughout the park. Trailer 2 belongs to a single mother with a teen daughter. I have created these sims and hope to load them. The way they look gives good insight to their design. Both mom and daughter like to dance, along with everyone living in the park. Trailer 3 is my personal favorite! It belongs to a young, eclectic couple, The Taylors! Trailer 4 belongs to Jason, who's older sister lives in trailer 5. He is a hooligan criminal and she is a sweet, romantic that loves to cook. Her kitchen has the best of appliances. Large community garden is behind her pull behind. Wish I could write more but I'm down to the wire on this one, my pics aren't even done loading, I've worked non stop to finish things up and I'm exhausted!

    -> i hope this works. Turns out editing this on my phone is ridiculously complicated
    DETAILS: I can't believe I finished this!
    So this is my lot with retirement community trailers and me and my niece are working on filling up newcrest with just normal trailers. So one big trailer park at the end
    Because the Hawthrone Project requires certain things to be added I thought that the trailers probably look similar. So I designed a trailer layout. Every resident is allowed to change the floor and wall slidings/colors.
    Captain Davey North and his wife Bay - Ma'am Bay, she insists - live in the first trailer. They decided to move to this trailer park after Captain North came home from sea for good. To ensure he would still feel like he is close to the ocean, Bay added water features in front of the porch. The anker next to the front door is a replica of the one from Captain Norths last ship. The couple likes to go fishing - all those fish in their kitchen are from their own collection.
    Lady Eleanor van Berger lives next door. She is originally from Great Britain, where she grew up on a large estate. The lady thought she had married advantageously, but it turned out that her husband left her in debt when he died. She sold their mansion and used the remaining funds to furnish this little trailer to her specifications. Of course, only the best for her cats!
    Mikkii is a passionate painter, but also dabbles in woodworking. He also has a slight case of dementia, so most of his art remains unfinished - like the two paintings that were supposed to go onto the kitchen wall. His daughter made sure he had a room just for his paintings and lots of easels all over the place.
    Pistol Pete is an old school cowboy, that still goes out and rides his horses. To that effect he has a personal gym in his trailer. The inside is done in lots of wood to remind him of those little shacks he used to sleep in in the field. On the outside one can clearly see that Pistol Pete is more interested in spending time with a guitar at the campfire than in gardening: lots of rocks and desert plants ensure he doesn't have to do any upkeep.
    Gnomina Meier and "that young guy" live in the trailer with, you guess it, a lot of gnomes in the front yard. Nobody knows Gnominas real name and she isn't talking about the identity of "that young guy". Trailer park residents know that there is only one bedroom in her trailer, so speculation and gossip is rife.
    Luna and Duke Havaneser are the final two residence of this part of the trailer park. They breed the little dog breed Havaneser. One can recognize their trailer mainly because of the full-blown dog agility course in their front yard. Inside their trailer there is a room just for the dogs - done in tiles so if their dogs have puppies the room is easy to clean. Luna is the one that loves the colour yellow, so that is the main one in the trailer.
    Harvey Wallbanger is the superintendent of this part of the trailer park. You can find his three flamingos in the front yard. He is barely able to keep his front porch and kitchen clean, so don't step into his bedroom/bathroom. However, he takes his lady friends into his own cinema and that usually works for impressing them. The only thing Harvey keeps in meticulous order are the residents files right next to his entrance door.
    There are various public areas for older residents: a community garden, a pool with a ramp, an outside cinema and a community cafe with a coffee bar for daytime use and a dance floor for nighttime use.
    Note: I playtested most of the sports/music/art items and they should all work.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Sunny Palms RV Park is a mobile home retirement park for those sims 55+. Harvey Wallbanger was fortunate to be placed here by The Hawthorne Project after he lost his job, his apartment, well, everything. So, now he lives in his own trailer and does maintenance work for the other residents. Since coming here, he is a changed man, partly because of his great neighbors. His portion of the trailer park has 5 unique trailers, one specially designed for #simswithdisabilities. There is also a community center with an outdoor pool. The residents are all gearing up for a special event in their newly opened movies under the stars park. Harvey hopes you will be able to join them for a special dedication and rare film showing.

    #BnS103 - Dream A Little Dream

    The deadline for this challenge is 26th September 2018


    You walk through the main office doors and can’t help but think of how much Karl would love this! The reception area is just the thing he’s always wanted. He doesn’t know you know, but you know he secretly has always wished for this or that to make his job here easier, and this set-up has it all.

    There is ample seating for clients, and a wonderfully large conference room for you to take meetings in. It’s… you didn’t even know it was what you wanted until you stood looking at it in awe.

    You have to see your office! You look around, opening doors until you find the one that must be yours, and like everything else you’ve seen, it is perfect. So much so you wonder how anyone could ever have built such a thing. It doesn’t even seem real.

    You are about to go see the last thing, the most important thing, the thing that you want to see more than anything when the intercom buzzes, waking you from your sleep.

    You sit up and rub your eyes, blinking as you look around at your real office, the perfect one of your dreams lingering in your mind’s eye.

    The intercom buzzes again and you finally answer it.

    “Yes, Karl?”

    “Well, we’re pretty slow, no clients on the schedule. I was wondering if I might take off early.”

    “Oh. Yes, of course. Before you do, can you come in here for a moment?”

    “On my way,” he says.

    You grab a pencil and paper and begin to furiously draw everything you can remember from your dream. After all, business has been more than good lately, and you are feeling like maybe you’ve outgrown this place.

    When Karl pokes his head in you look up and grin. “Karl, how would you like to have a new office?”


    THE BRIEF

    Reception area, conference room, offices, and something special you’ve always wanted.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The ground floor consists of reception area & “meet and greet” the potential clients. On the first floor, there’s a conference room for meeting & presentation area, VIP room for the high-profile clients, and 2 bathrooms. On the second floor, there’s an office and a canteen (sunroof) for the staffs to refresh as well as to entertain the clients. The studio/workplace is located on the top floor (sunroof) with balcony and a small rooftop garden. A small café is located at the back of the building, that can be accessed from the ground floor, which is what I always wanted if I have my own building (because I love coffee so much). The 2 fountains and the sculptures are placed to add the whimsical sense to the building, which reflect the owner.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I envisioned this office as specializing in making technology and homes accessible for people with disabilities. They also create signs meant to be easily understood, using large print, Braille and images as needed. The ground floor bathrooms are both spacious enough for walkers or wheelchairs. The special feature is the gym, complete with showers and lockers, because if I had an office, I'd want a gym close by.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Bright Night Offices is a wonderful group of offices. There are some shelves in the Executive Office with some extra space. Karl gets his own office for slow days or if you decide to hire a different receptionist. There are 4 decorated desks for extra employees (I would imagine that with this big office you would have more employees so you could work on more projects). There is stuff there for an office cat (which I feel the employee with all the cat stuff would have brought in) such as many resting spots, a cat bowl, and a litter box in the executive bathroom.

Toilets, staff room with all the amenities you could need including janitors closet. Second floor hosts main office another seating area, toilet and ......
    My special something: I often get asked how I did this or that when designing and so I decided to start up my own DIY youtube channel. We built a nice large room for recording that also functions as another office when we take on extra designers for larger projects. It also has roof top access for doing some landscaping videos, or for just relaxing.

    ENTRY DETAILS: How do you do a dream office on a budget?? This is how I do it, at least. Modern, crisp, combining concrete with natural woods, with bright color accents and lots of natural light. The thing I always wanted? Living green walls. I've been obsessed with them since I first saw one in real life, so of course that had to be a thing in this build.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    A converted factory with both industrial and contemporary elements... I wanted this office to be in an industrial setting, so I chose the docks of Brindleton Bay. The backstory is that this was a former bread factory that I have converted into office space. The offices retain many industrial elements that have been incorporated into the design. Exposed brick and industrial piping show the factory history of the lot while floating stairs, glass elements and contemporary furnishings give a modern twist.
    The special touch that I have always wanted is a wine cellar. This feature is found in the basement "executive apartment" (for out-of-town clients or when I need a place to crash), and contains many hand crafted vintages from Champs Les Sims and around the world.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    DREAM A LITTLE DREAM ~ From The Ground Up ~
    Newly developed office building in Uptown San Myshuno. The building has been designed for and by the architects at the highly appraised architectural firm ‘From the ground up’. As all of the employees have a severe passion for coffee (some might say unhealthy addiction), of course a coffee shop is included, and espresso machines and coffee makers are to be found on each floor.
    This office building is made like building blocks – in different colors (white, grey and blue). It's a modern building, and it suits the surrounding uptown area perfectly. The building is placed on a lot with the most perfect outlook over the city, and the architects really had this stunning view in mind when they designed this house, as there are patios on each floor – some floors more than one.
    Layout
    Ground floor: Reception, back office (Karl’s office), coffee shop, toilets. From the back office, there’s a private elevator going to the management offices on the top floor. From the coffee shop, there’s access to a large patio with ocean view, furnished with high tables and a foosball table.
    First floor: Offices, break room, toilets. Access to patio with seating.
    Second floor: Conference floor. Conference room, small lounge area with kitchen and espresso machines. Toilets. Access to three patios.
    Third floor: Management floor. Manager’s office including kitchen facilities, espresso machines and coffee maker. Private toilet. Meeting room. Access to large patio with seating.
    Build includes elevators to all floors. One elevator is private for the management. This can be accessed on the ground floor only via the reception back office (Karl’s office).
    My special addition: Coffee. Lots and lots of coffee! In-house coffee shop. And espresso machines and coffee makers all over the place!

    #BnS104 - Unexpected Arrivals

    The deadline for this challenge is 10th October 2018


    They certainly are a large family. Of course you had heard the news, so tragic - both parents dying in a car accident, and four orphans left behind! Their estranged aunt and her wife had agreed to take them in, so they wouldn’t have to be separated, but two twin babies, an eight-year-old, and a teen are a lot to take on for new parents!

    “Of course we never expected to be unexpected parents,” Saanvi, the aunt, says. “Couples like us really don’t have that issue.”

    “We’re very happy to do it,” Luna quickly adds. “But we’re very cramped in our place, now. “Ayla and Aesha share our bed, but Nila and Faisal are sleeping on the couches, and that just won’t do forever.”

    You nod sympathetically. “I understand completely.”

    “We love our house,” Saanvi says. “And the view. We don’t want to move, so we’ll have to add-on three new rooms, and probably another bathroom.”

    “It should complement the existing architecture as well,” says Luna. “But we’d love to have the interior updated while we’re making so many changes. Make it more friendly for the amount of people in it.”

    “And we want Nila and Faisal involved in their rooms,” Saanvi continues. “This is going to be as much their house as ours, I want to help make them feel as if they really belong there.”

    You nod and turn to Nila first, the middle sister. “Hello, Nila,” you say.

    She turns red and hides behind her hands, but with some gentle coaxing from Saanvi, she returns your greeting.

    “Why don’t you tell me a little about yourself? Do you have any hobbies? Anything you like to do for fun?”

    “I like to paint,” she says.

    “Oh? And what do you paint?”

    She shrugs and goes quiet.

    “She’s shy,” Luna offers as Nila shrinks into her. “She seems to really like browns and pinks together.”

    You decide to let Nila off the hook and turn to Faisal. “And what about you?”

    He doesn’t look at you but softly says, “I- I really like my telescope.”

    “Me, too,” you say, hoping to draw him out a little more. “I love looking at the stars.”

    He looks at you, not expecting that. “Yeah. I- I want to find a new one and name it.”

    “Oh? That sounds wonderful. What would you name it?”

    “Paavai,” he says.

    You remember that name from the news article. It was the mother. “That’s very beautiful.”

    He nods.

    “What about color? What colors do you like?”

    He thinks a bit longer about that before saying, “I guess yellow. Or… maybe purple.”

    “We’d like the babies to have a few things to help them develop their skills as they grow,” Saanvi says. “I’d like their room to be in a soft shade of green or blue.”

    “I like the colors in our room now,” Luna says, “but something new and fresh would be nice.”

    “I think this should all be very doable.”

    “Since you’ll be working on the whole house, we’ll be taking a vacation for a few weeks,” Saanvi says. “So we won’t be around for questions during the renovation. I hope we’ve given you enough to go on?”

    “I think I’ve got all I need,” you say. “The house will be move-in ready by the time you come back!”

    “Thank you so much,” Luna says. “This is such a burden off us.”

    “I am only too happy to help,” you say, already deciding to waive your fee for this one. You have every confidence that this new family will be able to overcome their tragic beginning and thrive in their new house.

    ENTRY DETAILS: We tried to keep the decor calm but warm and inviting for the family, with natural woods and cosy accessories. We used the colours the two older siblings said they liked most and made sure they had room for their activities. The kitchen is our favourite area and so far the family are enjoying that shared space the most. We've also made sure Faisal has his own space away from the younger children so he can relax, stargaze and quietly deal with his loss.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted to modernize the home, but still keep the general shape of the home. I added a wraparound-porch while I bulldozed the upper balcony. I expanded several spaces, downstairs and upstairs. I moved the kitchen to the back of the first floor to get a nicer layout. I also expanded it with the thought that maybe the whole family could fit in there, and make many nice meals together. I made a hallway, a new bathroom and a laundry room downstairs. The living room is kinda open plan, and leading to a spacious dining room.Both the living room and the dining room has space for all family members. I reserved the 2. floor to the bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. I kept the beige tones in the master bedroom, but "glammed" it up a bit, and also made it feel more relaxing and airy. I added some flowers for a cozy and beautiful vibe.
    NB! I did not include all the bathrooms because they're all pretty much the same.

Other items were upgraded with child-friendly versions, such as the reproduction antique furnishings in the living room. The master bedroom was moved downstairs. An expanded second floor allowed all the children to remain together. The yard was also given a major facelift. A small pool and playground equipment were added, along with a fence to keep the kids in the yard.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Saanvi and Luna liked the house as it was so they asked to maintain the main volumes and the existing architecture. In the front porch they asked for just one door to gain some space in the living. They also changed the windows and sliding color and renovated the interior completely. Now the house has a great flow for everyone. A basement was added with a pool, a sauna and laundry stuff. The side porch was also enlarged both floors and an open terrace was added upstairs to fit Faisal’s telescope. The twins and the girl rooms are downstairs. The twins will be soon toddlers and still have to learn how to use stairs. For the bigger siblings there are a lot of activities and stuff for skill building to keep their minds busy and think a little less in their loss.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Outside the home has been given a fresh coat of paint with a bold modern colour and white trim. The planting of soft shades of pinks and blues has been kept simple so Saanvi and Luna can spend their time outside with the children and not working on the garden. Inside has been freshened with a modern cottage style. The first floor has been gutted to give an open living/dining/kitchen area with an overhaul on the family bathroom. French doors replace the old doors leading to the extended patio where seating provides an overlook to a child-centred enclosed garden complete with sand pit, swings and monkey bars. An undercover outdoor dining area allows for family and visitor get-togethers. The master bedroom has been relocated to the ground floor along with the addition of an en-suite. Upstairs has 3 spacious bedrooms each attuned to the specific interests of the children. There is also an updated family bathroom on this level. Downstairs the basement boasts a large media room with it's own kitchenette including popcorn machine. There is also a large utility room on this level including laundry and storage for seasonal decorations.

    The house was kept rather similar on the outside, the upstairs was extended and a new balcony added. The porch and balcony at the side of the house were adjusted a little. The shutters and doors were painted black to create a brisk look. Since the area has no playground for children monkey bars and slide were added to the yard. The house now has four bedrooms (but can easily be turned into five bedrooms) and three bathrooms, two of which have a bathtub. Living room, kitchen and Saanvi & Luna's bedroom were redecorated keeping some of the original furniture. Twins have their bedroom and playroom downstairs, so they'll be easy to keep an eye on during the day. Having the other bedrooms upstairs allows Faisal and Nila some privacy and peace.

    ENTRY DETAILS: A fairly modest remodel, keeping much of the original furniture and room spaces. The biggest change was zoning and extending the ground floor. Open plan living is not ideal with youngsters running around so the living room and kitchen now have walls. The living room is ideal for the family to be together – and the door ensures that little ones stay put!
    There is a new entrance hallway, an ideal place for the large family to store bits and bobs, school stuff and dirty shoes – which helps keep muck out of the house.
    Faisel and Nila have their rooms downstairs, helping them to get peace from the babies. The adults are upstairs next to the babies’ room to ensure they can be cared for during sleepless nights. The upper floor has increased in size slightly to allow for more space and a surprise en suite for the grown ups.
    The soft colour of green, browns and pinks from the original build have been used throughout the public spaces and the master. The existing bathrooms remain in the same place but with extensive redecoration.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I renovated the house by extending the top floor of this shotgun style house and I‘ve redesigned a different floor plan with a new pink paint. I keep some of the old furniture and sell the rest of it. There are 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms in total. I decided to give them an open floor plan for the living, dining, & kitchen area. A fireplace is placed to divide the kitchen & the other area. Faisal’s room is located on the ground floor, so that he can enjoy stargazing from the observatory located just next to his room. The room interior design is based on his favourite colour (purple & yellow), full of stars & space art pieces. Nila’s room is located on the top floor and she has a small balcony for her to enjoy the fresh air from time to time. Her room is decorated with her favourite colour (brown & pink) & full of art, crafts and aisle for her upcoming birthday. The twins’ room is located in between Nila’s and the couple’s room. The room is designed based on the colour scheme requested by their aunt. I choose the confetti wallpaper style instead of wall decals for Ayla & Aesha as it gives the room a little bit of style. Saanvi & Luna’s room is located on the new extended floor on the top floor. I give them a fresh new colour & design for the bedroom. There’s a balcony for the couple to enjoy yoga & a walk-in closet next to their bathroom. There’s a small basement for them to store their holiday decorations. At the yard, there’s a small BBQ area for the family to enjoy their weekend & a swing for the little ones. My favourite part of the house is the bedrooms, because each bedroom has their own unique style that represent each of the resident style & interest.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Updating Riverside Roost to fit this unexpected family of six has been a pleasure.
    Saanvi and Luna loved their original house and how well it fit into the neighborhood, so I tried to keep the outside renovations simple. The entryway was pretty much left alone and still has two front doors, one of the features making the house so special. The front porch was expanded to make space for a BBQ and some seating for the family to hang out in the summer. The whole house got a new coat of paint as well as new shingles on the roof. The windows were mostly kept but painted all white.
    The front yard was huge and empty before, so the house was expanded to the right on both floors. There's still enough space in the yard (which has been fenced off to keep the toddlers safe) for a kiddie pool, a swing and of course a telescope for Faisal.
    The inside however has been completely updated and modernized. Walking through the front door, there is a big entry/mudroom with lots of space for all those coats and shoes. Behind that is the open dining room and kitchen. The living room is off to the right in the extension. It is separated into two parts, a lounge/TV area with a fireplace (including the urns of the deceased parents) and a children's area, with a doll house, a reading corner and a table for board games. The whole family space has been designed and decorated in neutral colors, since I didn't want to overwhelm the new parents and have them feel like their entire home is now a playground ;-)
    Going back through the kitchen there is a small laundry and mudroom that goes out onto the back porch. From there you can enter the downstairs bathroom as well as Saanvi and Luna's bedroom, which has been changed completely. The new comfy bed is the center of the room, with an office area to the right and a little beauty station to the left. There's also a yoga mat for active Saanvi to wind down after a tough day with the kids. The colors have been kept light and cool, with blues and soft yellows, to give the room a relaxing feeling.
    Walking up the stairs there is a common area for the kids to hang out, complete with a computer for studying, another reading nook and a little puppet theatre for creative Nila to put on shows for the twins. There's also access to a small bathroom (which is mostly for Faisal) and the back porch with a chess tables.
    The kids' rooms are accessible through a little hallway/walk-in closet. To the very left is the twins room, very pink, very girly, very playful. Creative Nila lives in the middle. She got a new awesome bunk bed with a little sitting nook underneath, as well as lots of space for her arts and crafts. The three girls share a bathroom. And lastly, Faisal's room to the right. It is decorated in his favorite colors and separated into three parts, the bed, the desk and a sofa with TV for him and his friends to hang out and play video games. There's also loads of space pictures everywhere, as well as Faisal's space rock collection and some of his latest science projects.

A formal Dining room and a family/game room were located where the small bedroom was originally placed.

A new, single door was added, with the other one replaced by a window so the chess table could be moved out form between the door and stairs. The kitchen was extended across what used to be a hallway and a wall was removed, giving the first floor an open plan. Upstairs, the second floor was enlarged to make room for more bedrooms and a second bathroom.

    ENTRY DETAILS: i tried to keep the exterior as close as possible to the original and included some additional details that i think make it fit in better with the new orleans feels of willow creek. i completely redid the floorplan so i could utilize the space better. both floors were extended so i could have enough rooms for all of the bedrooms as well as an office and playroom. i felt like such a large family would want a lot of different rooms to escape to lol. either of the new rooms could easily be converted into a bedroom in case the twins decide they want separate rooms when they get older. sorry that the screenshots are a bit blurry. i use a mac so ive been having issues with screenshots being blurry and upside down since august.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The classic modified double-shotgun has been yet again reimagined, this time with plenty of space for a big family! At five bedrooms and three baths, this house will be a comfortable and welcome home for the unexpected arrivals for years to come. These are great digs for a family on a budget who still wants everyone to be comfortable, and there is still room to expand as the children grow. #MOO #NoCC
    My main goal with this remodel was to keep the feel of the original home, but to remake the interior into something warm and comforting as the children adjust to their new home. I think I struck a good balance of meeting development, interest, and space needs of the new arrivals with familiarity for the couple.

    ENTRY DETAILS: After a false start where I went completly off track I managed to update Riverside Roost and keep the exterior in the style it was previously. The interior has been completly transformed with the addition of a basement/rumpus room being the biggest change. This open plan room is designed for the children and is totally their space where they can play and relax. It also has aself contained bedroom and bathroom and i devoted this room for the teenage son Faisal.
    I redid the layout of both ground and first floor removing hte existing bedroom form the ground floor and devoting htis space to the kitchne instead. There are 3 bedrooms on the now extended first floor which include Nila's bedroom, a nursery for the twins and a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Saanvi Ásgeirsdóttir, née Chaudhary, fell in love with Lúna while the two were still in high school. Their romance was not an easy path, however, and Saanvi’s very traditional parents would not approve of the young couple. When she graduated from high school, she and Lúna moved out to college together, and Saanvi’s family became distant, eventually no longer maintaining contact. Despite being estranged, Saanvi still cared deeply for her family, so when she learned her twin sister and brother-in-law had been killed in a car accident, leaving four children behind, she didn’t think twice about taking the children in.
    Lúna Ásgeirsdóttir was afraid when she moved to Willow Creek from the Land of the Midnight Sun that she not only wouldn’t be able to make new friends by the time she graduated from high school, but that the culture shock of the temperate, riverside neighborhood would be too much to adjust to. Thankfully, the latter proved to be an unfounded fear, and she fit right in to her new community. At school, she quickly made friends, and ended up meeting the lovely Saanvi Chaudhary. The two became fast friends and then a cute couple, much to the delight of their peers. However, not everyone was thrilled – Saanvi’s very traditional family disapproved, despite Lúna’s attempts to ease their concerns. After high school, she and Saanvi decided it would be best for their relationship to move on together and leave Saanvi’s family to sort their own feelings out. The two married and made a lovely home together; then, one day, tragedy struck Saanvi’s estranged family, and Lúna had to watch her wife’s heart break all over again. She quickly assured Saanvi she’d be happy if they took the children into their own home, so they could have loving parents to raise them.
    Faisal Saqqaf is the eldest child of Fadl and Paavai Saqqaf. He’s outwardly quiet and plain, but he has been doing his best to meet his parents’ expectations that he become a scientist. What he really enjoys, though, is the discovery – once he’s found something new and the novelty wears off, he’s ready to move on to the next thing. His dedicated, inward-facing world was thrown upside down by the sudden deaths of his parents, hitting him hard in an already difficult time – high school. Out of nowhere, the aunt his parents rarely spoke of and her wife stepped in to take him and his sisters into their home. They seem like great people – but he’s not sure if he can really open up to them yet.
    Nila is the middle child of the Saqqaf children, and her already-shy demeanor was only multiplied by the sudden death of her parents. She’s a creative soul at heart and throws herself into her work with a vigor that surprises even adults. She didn’t know what to make of her new home with her aunts initially; it was pretty crowded, and her Aunt Saanvi’s resemblance to her mom was unsettling. She was surprised and delighted when her aunts took interest in her opinions on things, because they had never mattered to adults in her life before; she was used to simply doing as she was told. When she learned her aunts were intending to remodel their house so she and her siblings could each have their own space, she was thrilled – while still mourning the loss of her parents, she’s nervous and excited to see where this new journey will take her.
    Ayla and Aesha Saqqaf, twins, are the youngest of the Saqqaf children. They were barely more than babies when they were orphaned, and they aren’t quite sure what the sudden fuss and move to a new house was about. It seems like Mom is still there, but she dresses differently, and she keeps saying to call her “Aunt Saanvi.” Dad isn’t around anymore, and no one wants to say why, but Aunt Lúna is always there instead. Things are different in the new house, too; there are tall stairs to navigate, and there’s talk about new rooms coming soon. It’s all very confusing, but also very interesting, and they can’t wait to explore and learn more about what’s going on.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Saanvi and Luna are ecstatic with the new arrivals, but not about the cause, though. They had just started talking about getting a family before the tragedy, so they were almost ready for them arriving. They liked the house before, but now they love it! The renovators managed to keep the style and were able to give each room its own personality and have created some safe and nice spaces for the two big siblings and the future toddlers.
    Faisal and Nila are still devastated. Taking that in consideration, the house has plenty of equipment for entertainment and skill building. At least if they are busy they won’t go to dark places and feel so bad constantly. That doesn’t mean they have forgotten their parents. Faisal still searches for a star to put her mother’s name in the sky forever, and Nila is getting along pretty well with her new found auntie, she’s even wearing her hair as Saanvi does.
    Luna is working in the culinary career as her aspiration is becoming a master chef. And Saanvi is in the painter career, her aspiration is becoming a painter extraordinaire. Both have developed some skills, but they are still down in their jobs levels. Faisal is a grade C student and Nila is a grade B student.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Luna and Saanvi were High School sweethearts. Neither family approved and pressured the girls to go to different colleges, hoping they would grow apart and forget each other. But that didn't happen. The pair found each other again after college, discovered they were still very much in love, and decided to get married. They had spoken of maybe adopting someday, but never expected to suddenly be the parents of four so soon. While they certainly regret the way it happened, they are both very happy to raise Saanvi's nephew and nieces as their own and wouldn't have it any other way.
    As the oldest, Faisal had been prepared to drop out of school to raise his sister, and is very glad he didn't have to. He's still protective of them, one reason he doesn't mind having the room right next to the twins. He secretly feels like he needs to help out around the house and with his sisters so the aunts he barely knows will want to keep him around.
    NIla is the quiet one, who finds some measure of comfort in her drawing and painting, which help her cope with her parents' deaths. At first, she believed the accident was her fault because she was angry at her mother and told her to go away that morning. She is beginning to accept that wasn't the case, but the fear of saying or doing the wrong thing in case someone else gets hurt has only added to her shyness.
    Aesha and Ayla turned one during the newly formed family's vacation, and as such are much too young to really understand what is going on. Their aunts and Siblings will do their best to keep the memory of their parents alive for the two littlest girls by sharing stories and pictures, but as far as they're concerned, they've always had two mothers who love them very much.

    ENTRY DETAILS: We wanted a comfy and safe space for our new kids. Nila loves when we read to her. We love watching movies or playing video games together too. And listening to music, of course. Luna’s gardening is also improving, so she surprises us with some nice shaped bonsais from time to time. We are looking forward to the twins to grow up and join the family for the fun. It’s messy, but it’s our mess and we love it.
