    #BnS105 - Life After Life

    The deadline for this challenge is 24th October 2018


    You had sent Karl home early to beat the storm. You didn’t want him out in that, but you had some loose ends to clean up - or rather, you had models and sketches and a mess to clean up! You looked back over your design ideas and smile. You’ve always loved making a difference in people’s lives, the look on their faces when they see it… makes all the headaches worth it!

    The wind was shaking the windows when you finally decided it was time to head home yourself. You gathered your things and turned out the lights, pulling your coat tight around you as you stepped outside and turned to lock up.

    When you turned back around, you nearly jumped out of your skin! There was a figure looming over you in the darkness, seemingly materialized out of the fog.

    “Good evening,” he says, voice smooth as velvet.

    “G-good evening,” you manage to get out.

    “I have not come at a bad time, have I?” the gentleman says.

    “Bad time? Oh… no no, I was-” well you were just locking up to go home but does that really constitute ‘bad time’?

    “I am glad. I apologize I could not have been here sooner.”

    Well, you suppose staying a little later wouldn’t hurt, and you’d rather not stand out here so you unlock the door and escape from the elements. Oddly, your visitor does not follow you in.

    “Please, do come in,” you say.

    He smiles broadly as he steps inside. You aren’t entirely sure but it seems like his teeth are just a little… longer than average.

    Shaking off your coat, you hang it back up and turn the lights on again. Now that you’re able to get a better look at your guest he seems far less looming than outside. You note the piercing eyes, the impeccable if somewhat outdated dress. He does not seem the least beaten by the storm, unlike yourself you’re sure.

    “Won’t you sit down?” you ask, motioning to the conference table.

    “Thank you,” he says, taking a seat. You can’t quite place the accent, but it seems familiar.

    “Now, what can I do for you, Mr…?”
    “Ah, you may call me Seth.”

    “Well, Mr. Seth, what can I do for you?”

    “I am in need of a new residence,” he says. “My current will soon be- ah- uninhabitable. So I will need it quickly, by the end of the month and no later.”

    “Of course, we often work on a tight schedule,” you say, though find his choice of words very odd.

    “Good, I appreciate that,” he says. “But I require very particular details in my residence.”

    “That shouldn’t be a problem,” you assure him, slipping easily back into your professional mode. “We have catered to a wide variety of needs.”

    “Then what I am after is a subterranean residence, entirely below ground except for what must necessarily be above to access it.”

    “Oh, that’s very do-able,” you say. “We can add skylights or-”

    “No!”

    He cuts you off so forcefully you jump slightly in your seat.
    “I apologize,” he quickly adds. “I just- no skylights. I, uh, value my privacy. I do not wish anyone to be able to see inside. Under any circumstances. No skylights, window wells, nothing. Please.”

    “Very well,” you say. “There are plenty of lighting options.”

    He relaxes again.

    “I value my privacy, so a good fence around the property is a must. But I will need space for entertaining,” he says. “I host events every month.”

    “Oh?” That seems interesting. “What kind of events?”

    “Exclusive events. Very exclusive.”

    “No, I mean…football parties, book club, art shows-”

    “Yes! Art, that’s it,” he says, as if taking a conveniently offered excuse and running with it. “Very exclusive art showings. With necar. There will need to be a bar.”

    “Okay.” You write that down but this is a very odd client! “And beyond that, is it just you? Just one bedroom or…?”

    “Yes, only me. The usual parts of a house, yes. All that. But no mirrors!”

    “No mirrors.” You jot down a few more notes. “Well, I think the only thing left is the cost-”

    “Here is your payment,” he says, handing you a cashier’s check for… a great deal more than you were about to tell him you needed. You do not ask any questions.

    “Well Mr. Seth, I think you’ll be very happy with your new place.”

    “I hope so,” he says as he stands up. “After all, just ‘cause I’m dead doesn’t mean I can’t have a life!”

    He laughs.

    You laugh. Then the words sink in and you stop, but suddenly notice he is no longer standing there. Or, anywhere. You look back at the cashier’s check in your hand and shrug. Well, you’ve done weirder.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Welcome to Forgotten Hollow - It's a place some people would find dark and gloomy. However, I think you'll love it. We found you a lot with a cute little house that we changed to fit you. We built you a cellar with all the rooms you need. Since you're such an artsy guy, we included a lot of art pieces throughout the house. The above ground level is not quite window free, but we built double walls for you, so no one will be able to look in, and you will not be able to look outside. We felt this was the best decision for the overall aesthetic of the exterior of the house. We made you an open plan kitchen, dining and living area - perfect to host guests! I kept the colors neutral and dark, which I matched with sleek furniture. It's very masculine without feeling like a bachelor pad. Hope you enjoy it!

    Welcome to the Pettigrew Family Cemetery! It may seem a little dark or spooky at first, but it IS a cemetery! No, the gate around the property is to keep unwanted visitors out, I assure you. And we have been invited! Yes, it is a mausoleum, you are right. But, trust me, there is more to see here than just what is on the surface! No, come back! Take my hand if you feel frightened. It really is a beautiful place inside! Just through this door… Umm, well…yes, there are bodies in those coffins. But we are going to the hidden stairs behind the coffins. Don’t lose your nerve now! This is definitely worth a look! This is a two bedroom home with two full baths and two half baths! It is truly unique, and I am proud to say I designed it! Well, yes, the bathrooms are around this corner... No, go ahead, I can wait.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is just a wooded lot, right? It doesn’t look like anyone even owns it…unless you venture to the heart of the woods, find a door, and dare to take the dark stair into the underground. That’s how some folks prefer it. This natural form of fencing, paired with an already-dark location in Forgotten Hollow, make the Afterlife Abode the ultimate private residence.
    This home is two levels underground, featuring two full bathrooms and one bedroom, with an additional sitting room that doubles as a guest bedroom. Natural fencing in the form of strategically-placed vegetation, rocks, and props create psychological deterrents as effective - or more effective - than a rigid traditional fence. The access door intentionally faces the rear of the lot and is obscured from view to add an additional layer of privacy. #NoCC #MOO

    ENTRY DETAILS: Seth's new home was once a root cellar beneath one of the first homes to be built on Windenberg Island. The original house has burned down long since, leaving only overgrown ruins. The original cellar has been updated and divided into rooms to make a comfortable home for one. It has electricity, plumbing, and climate control. The fence surrounding the property is new, but incorporates original stones. Much of the lot was left wild to offer a second layer of privacy, and the original family graveyard also stayed at Seth's request.

    ENTRY DETAILS: "Being old and dead doesn't mean you can't love new and vibrant." This Art Deco home holds some of Seth's favourite pieces. The large entry has an open stairwell down to the main living area where the main part of Seth's collection is on view. Ranging from classic and modern art pieces through to antiques and oddities, the Gallery is also the main entertaining area with piano and Globe Bar. On one side of the Gallery is the Kitchen and Dining and on the other side a large bathroom and stairs leading down to the Bedroom. The bedroom has been decorated to appeal to Seth's slightly more eccentric nature as well as his mysterious side. On the entry level a back door leads out to a romantic garden just right for a moonlight stroll.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes thanks.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Dear Mr. Seth, we found you the perfect spot for your privacy. It’s in the middle of nowhere, on an island in Windenburg. The lot is surrounded by trees and some houses, no roads, though. We built in some underground ancient ruins and tried to keep some of the historic flavor. The first basement level has a couple of pools in the outside, and inside you’ll find the entertainment room desired with the bar and other amenities. A secret entrance will conduct you to the second level, your private quarters, with a kitchen-dinning, a public bathroom, a laundry room and a den with a secret crypt. Another door leads to your master bedroom, with a living, a private bath and another secret crypt for your special guests.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Mr. Seth's home was build to fit in with the surroundings of Forgotten Hollow. Old world styling was mixed with modern reliability. The property is enclosed with strong stone fencings that incorporate the chimneys for the subterranean home beneath this entry tower. Landscaping costs were kept very low since Mr. Seth insisted there was no point in adding more above ground than was necessary. Simple, well made and utilatarian is the theme for Mr. Seth's home.

    ENTRY DETAILS: What vampire in their right mind would choose to live in the middle of the desert? It's hot during the day, biting at night, and if you catch yourself in a mirage, you might mistake a cactus for a human and wind up with an unfortunate visit to the ER. But, on the other hand, it's not the first place a hunter would think to look for vampire-related activity, so you might be safer here than you think. Combine that with an old ugly bunker that serves only as an eyesore to the people of Oasis Springs, and you've got yourself an adequate lair for all your nocturnal needs.

    ENTRY DETAILS: A secluded spot in Brindleton Bay seemed the perfect place to house Mr Seth’s unusual request for an entirely subterranean home. For a man who likes his privacy, there’s certainly plenty of it. A good sturdy fence surrounds the property and of course no windows. The entertaining space is a marvel, with mood lighting and plenty of space to enjoy art and drink. A little extra surprise awaits… a hidden crypt as he did say he was dead after all!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted a luxurious feel with both modern and traditional styles. I wanted to keep it mainly neutral so that it was nice and bright throughout. I also added in an 'indoor outdoor' room, giving the feel of a garden whilst being inside. Keeping it neutral also means you get the wow factor when entering the exclusive room for entertaining, which is furnished with deep reds and cream furniture.

    ENTRY DETAILS: "Mr. Seth" is really Seth Andrew Pettigrew. He is eccentric, rich, and has some odd hobbies! He is a vampire, so don't expect him to visit during the day. He wants to be the leader of the pack in popularity. He is also a snob, an insider, and a music lover! When he said he hosted art events, he really meant it...but art that you can relate to, maybe not so much! His piercing green eyes and smooth, deep voice make Seth memorable even before you get to know him! And you should hear him play the piano!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Seth is the kind of guy who seems to know everyone, but no one really seems to know him that well. He’s been around a while, but when the topic of his age comes up, he deftly deflects with a quip about being “old enough,” and lets his surname do the rest of the talking for him. [ In Judeo-Christian mythology, Seth is the third son of Adam and Eve. ] He’s become a bit of a Snob over the years, mostly from becoming well-versed in what lasts and what doesn’t.
    Seth’s had a long time to refine his skills, but he’s come to realize that many get rusty when they’re not used often. His impressive collection of books in his library has ensured that his knowledge can always be replenished, but sometimes, just putting in the work is what it takes. He was once skilled in several instruments, as well as singing, but when his fingers and voice got out of practice, he decided to refocus on the ones he loved most, the pipe organ, piano, and violin. His personal pipe organ is his most treasured instrument, while he uses his love of piano as an excuse to get out of the house and visit some nightclubs – the patrons are always delighted by his playing and are interested in striking up a conversation. The nightclub scene led to interests in art, dancing, and mixology, which he’s incorporated into his home life.
    Despite all of these interests, Seth remains a Loner at heart, and he maintains a Neat aspect in both his personal attire and his home. You won’t find stray drinking glasses or out-of-place books if you’re one of the few he invites in for his exclusive gatherings. Despite his rather youthful appearance, Seth has achieved more things than most people, and as a result, he’s become more fond of entertaining and being entertained than anything else. He's starting to aspire to be a Party Animal, and he wants to throw the best parties in town.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Seth Fargough has lived many places during his long life, and taken many identities. When asked where he was born, he will mention growing up in Egypt, but refuses to offer any further details. Family is another topic Seth doesn't like to discuss though he keeps portraits of several relatives around. When pressed, he admits to having participated in wars, but won't say which.
    Though in recent years he has come to love his privacy, inviting only a select few into his home on his own terms, Seth once thrived on chaos, enjoying crowds and activity. He once led a cult, but when their hideout was raided, Seth disappeared and left that life behind him, reinventing himself yet again as an eccentric loner with a love of art and antiques.
    (Chaos, war, and cults are all references to the Egyptian god Seth/Set/Setesh)

    #BnS106 - That Entrepreneurial Spirit

    The deadline for this challenge is 7th November 2018


    “Mrs. Fisher is here,” Karl says over your intercom. You thank him and ask to have her come in, rising to greet her when she does.

    “I’m so glad you could make time for me,” she says, taking your hand and giving a firm shake.

    “I’m always happy to help the small-business people of the town,” you say, being one yourself. “What are your plans?”

    She sits and sets her briefcase down. “I want to put a four-to-six-unit retail building for local small businesses to get their products to a wide-array of customers. I am very interested in helping small entrepreneurs to realize their dreams. I already have a lot that I own for this purpose, so that won't be part of the expense.”

    You can certainly appreciate that. “Do you know which businesses those will be yet?”

    She opens her briefcase and takes out several folders. “No. I have a number of applications here, but I have not finalized them. The units will need to be fairly generic, nothing crazy, these will have to be rentable to a variety businesses.”

    “That should be easy to do. Do you want each to have its own storefront, or more of a small mall with a common court?”

    “I am not good with design, so I’ll leave that to you.”

    Well, that is your job, but it always makes you a little nervous when the customer isn’t really sure what they want, it makes it more guess-work on your end.

    “There should be some parking or bike racks for customers to use,” Mrs. Fisher adds after a moment. “Restrooms. Some landscaping to draw the eye; people should want to come here.”

    You finish writing it down. “That shouldn’t be a problem. I think you can expect your building by the end of the month. All you need to do pick your renters.”

    “I am so happy I picked you for my architect,” Mrs. Fisher said. “I think we will get along quite well.”

    You smile, hoping that’s true.


    THE BRIEF


    90K budget (lot is being donated, so you don't have to count that in the cost)
    Design a commercial lot with between four and six retail spaces.
    Provide landscaping, parking or bike racks, and public restrooms.
    For judging purposes, ensure a variety of picture which do not include the optional challenge are available


    Room Challenge:
    Show the ground floor of one of the businesses which has rented a space. As this is the optional challenge, the representational business does not need to fit within the budget scope.


    Sim Challenge:
    Create the owner of one of the rented spaces and show him/her in their business.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This small florist shop was the realization of owner Delshay Greyhorse's dream. It is family run, featuring many types of flowers and other plants, but also items related to gardening. The flower arrangements are all created by the family, but the artwork is a mix of their own work and that of other local artists who have agreed to have their work featured in the shop. In time, the shop will expand and offer more variety if it succeeds.

She hopes to set up adoptions for the stray cats and dogs which she finds so that they can have new homes too. They tend to loiter on the lot so there's always animals to re-home.

    THAT ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT ~ Oasis Retailers ~
    Newly developed retail lot in Oasis Springs' commercial district. The building is designed for 6 retailers, one of which is reserved for a coffee shop, leaving 5 retail spaces ready for rental.

    Layout:
    Ground floor: Main and back entrances, two available retail spaces, and a coffee shop with outdoors take away and outdoors seating. Stairs to upper floor.
    Upper floor: Three retail spaces of various sizes, restrooms and seating area. Fabulous skylight dome, letting the daylight in all the way down to the ground floor.
    Outside: Take away coffee shop and outdoors seating. Lots of spaces to rest, a place to park your bike or your car. Landscaping architects have matched the surrounding vegetation by using native plants and trees, such as palm trees and agaves.

    #BnS107 - Fall Designer Showdown

    The deadline for this challenge is 21st November 2018


    It’s that time again - time for you to show off your awesome design skills! This round, we’ve taken a base game house and stripped it down completely - no roof, no siding, no flooring, no wall coverings and no terrain paint. It’s a blank canvas for you to completely decorate to your vision.

    Well, almost completely blank that is… we’ve left a few items behind that you have to use in your design. The items must be used as-is - no substitutions, no changing the colors, and they must remain in the room in which you find them. You can, however, move the objects within the room as you see fit. Additionally, the items should help inform or inspire your design choices in that room in some way.

    Shell - Front View
    8wc9Xxw.png

    Ground Floor

    Upper Floor
    vWp0oU0.jpg

    As usual, there are a few more fine points, so please read the brief carefully.


    THE BRIEF


    All walls, windows and doors must remain in their places. No, you can’t move or delete any walls, windows or doors.
    You CAN swap out existing doors, windows and arches for doors, windows and arches of the same size (1 tile for 1 tile, 2 tiles for 2 tiles).
    You can change the color of any windows, doors or arches.
    You can change the style of any stairs but not the size or location.
    You can place the shell on any size lot in any world of your choice.
    Equal attention in judging will be given to interior design, landscaping, and architectural design.
    You cannot add onto the existing building, but you can add other, unattached buildings to the lot if you wish (ex. garage, potting shed, etc.)
    Total Budget = 160,000 (shell + additions + lot cost = 160,000 max)
    DOWNLOAD SHELL HERE


    Room Challenge:

    Furnish and decorate a master suite. The budget is unlimited for the room challenge.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I changed the side of the front of the home. I added porches, more windows, and doors. Upstairs I created closets in each bedroom. I created a traditional looking outside, but the interior is full of comfort for a large family. The house itself has fast internet, Gnomes, and On Ley Line, insuring twins are mainly born. The two children's rooms reflect this, with a toddlers room with two beds and an older children/pre-teens room for two more siblings. A large yard,wrap around porches/decks, and two balconies all provide space for a large family to sleep, eat, play, and relax together!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Based on the arches I decided to go for a Spanish style house (then I realized it was the original style of the house). So, I added a couple of porches wrapping around the first floor to add some more interest in the house shape and in order to keep the house cooler avoiding some sun and creating ventilated and covered zones to spend some nice time outdoors. The house is ready for 6 people (one being a toddler). The garden is low maintenance, adapted to the dry desert weather, but in the backyard there’s plenty of water in a fishing pond and a pool.

    #BnS108 - Settlement for Simanity

    The deadline for this challenge is 5th December 2018


    “Please, come in,” you say, gesturing for your two guests to sit.

    A well-dressed woman hands you a business card which says ‘Settlement for Simanity’, and identifies herself as a Ms. Abby Jung. You know the organization but have never worked directly with them.

    She is accompanied by a gentleman with the kind of impressive beard and friendly face usually reserved for Santas. He is dressed more… not casually, exactly, but you can tell he’s much more of a hands-on type, with a firm, calloused grip. He introduces himself as simply Tepeu.

    “Thank you for seeing us without an appointment,” she says.

    “Not at all,” you say. “How can I be of help to your organization?”

    “Well, that’s an interesting question,” Tepeu says. “We are looking to create very small homes which can be cheaply and quickly erected, but still be functional for places where whole communities are in need.”

    “War zones, natural disaster areas, displaced populations, that kind of thing,” Ms. Jung says. “These won’t be our idea of a house with so many rooms and possessions and furnishings.”

    “No,” the Tepeu agrees. “These will be places for sleeping, food prep, and storage mainly. The important aspect is that the family will be in a good, solid structure which can provide safety. A door which locks. We take such security for granted but it is lacking in many areas of the world.”

    You nod, remembering some of your own clients who so desperately needed a home after some kind of disaster or another. “I would be happy to be involved in any way I can.”

    Tepeu breaks into wide grin.

    “We have few requirements, mostly we are hoping you will be able to connect the dots for the actual design of the building,” says Ms. Jung as she hands over several briefs.

    “The need is so wide-spread,” Tepeu says. “There are many climates and cultures which Settlement for Simanity will build for, so we are hoping we can get a variety of designs, while meeting the basic needs.”

    “Of course!” you say, already having visions in your head.


    THE BRIEF


    Budget: 45,000 + lot cost (do not include lot cost in the $45,000 budget.
    Any size lot can be used but the size of any of the single prototype structures on the lot should not be more than 64 squares total (e.g. 8x8, 4x16, etc.)
    Your prototype lot should have at least 3 versions/copies of your design. Layouts can vary for different sized families.
    Include a communal garden and any other special touches which may be appropriate for your build climate/location.
    Pick one of the following community locations to design for:
    Desert
    Rainforest
    Subarctic
    Tropic
    Dense urban
    (You do not need to own a suitable world for your chosen location but your landscaping and terrain paints should be consistent with the climate
    you design for)
    Each build will need to be fully securable.
    At least two beds in each unit. The main be must be a regular adult bed. The 2nd bed can be a crib or toddler bed.
    Toilet/bathing facilities
    Cooking facilities
    At least one additional skill item of any kind

    Room Challenge:

    Fully decorate one of the three Simanity prototype modules on your lot to depict a family living in it.
    Budget: 12,000

    Sim Challenge:


    Create a household with at least 3 members and show them in their new Simanity home. Be sure to highlight their traits and outfits in your media.

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: HERE https://imgur.com/a/GgVlqH8
    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Urban Relief is a fenced compound of prototype container homes built on an unused plot of land next to the docks in a dense urban setting. It highlights the use of space despite the population density of a big city. This setup is meant for displaced urban poor in big cities, particularly those whose homes were destroyed by natural disasters. It is highly recommended for placement in developing countries which regularly experience disasters.
    Each unit is made up of two small container boxes put together with other units to form a complex. Every unit comes equipped with cooking facilities, a pre-fabricated shower/toilet unit, and furniture donations from charity groups to make the space more habitable. The interiors are entirely open-plan save for the pre-fabricated shower/toilet unit to reduce costs, and it is only meant as temporary housing for half a year or two. All living areas have a bookcase for skill building. Each unit is also equipped with a heavy steel door with reinforced locks to prevent forced entry. Floors are made of concrete as the need for decorative flooring is unnecessary in this case. The units may not look pretty, but residents have painted the once-grey walls to make their living space more bearable.
    The compound is secured by fences and gates, and only residents and simanitarian workers are allowed inside. Community facilities include two community gardens, a veranda for fresh air, a basketball court, and a jungle gym for children. The compound also has space to store aid supply crates during disasters, which also explains the need for the enclosure.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    My take on this challenge was that these are emergency survival shelters that need to be modular and quick to assemble. Having lived in a Hurricane-prone area of the country for most of my life, I tried to go for a slightly more aesthetically pleasing FEMA trailer. These jungle shelters have pre-fabbed walls that come in a variety of lengths so that they can be assembled to create shelters of varying dimensions. Regardless of the size of the shelter, the bathroom module is consistent and can be attached to any side wall of the shelter. All units have a kitchenette with table seating. There is also outdoor cooking available at the fire pit between two of the units. These survival shelters are nothing fancy, but they can be a Godsend for families facing great need.

    #BnS109 - Twas the Month of December

    The deadline for this challenge is 19th December 2018


    ‘Twas the month of December
    As you sat on the floor,
    Flipping through pages
    Of festive decor -

    Candles and tinsel
    In shimmering gold,
    Green and red flannels,
    And a reindeer centerfold.

    Inside with your cocoa,
    Wrapped up in a robe,
    With hopes of peace
    Throughout all the globe.

    When all of a sudden
    The world all around
    Fell eerily silent,
    Not the slightest of sound!

    Until, with a shock,
    You heard on the roof
    The clippity clatter
    Of each tiny hoof!

    Why, it’s not even Gift day,
    You thought to yourself.
    What brings a visit
    From that jolly old elf?

    But the wonder was answered,
    Not a moment to waste.
    He came down the chimney
    And into your place.

    “My dear Architect!”
    The old man cried,
    And it seemed he was not
    Quite so jolly inside.

    “I’m in such a state
    I have such a need!
    Do you have time to perform
    Yet another good deed?”

    “Of course!” you reply,
    “You can count on me
    But what on earth
    Could Santa’s trouble be?”

    The old elf, he sighed,
    In an armchair he flopped,
    “Those helpers have gone
    And blown up my shop!”

    You stand there agape;
    You can’t quite comprehend.
    You finally stammer out,
    “Say that again?”

    “An unfortunate accident
    Caused the destruction.
    They were trying to increase
    The rate of production,

    “But a stray bit of magic
    Had started to build-up,
    And before we knew it,
    The whole place had gone up!

    “Not just the shop, either,
    The stables are gone,
    And half of the house -
    The whole place is foregone!”

    “Is everyone all right?”
    You ask in a hurry
    He smiled and nodded
    “You don’t need to worry.”

    “But production is halted
    We’re in such a bind!
    It’s already December
    We can’t fall behind!

    “I’ll need a new workshop
    A house, and garage.
    I’d say it’s time for
    A building montage!”

    “Santa, I’m on it
    Now don’t even fret!
    I’ve never let anyone down,
    Not one yet!

    “Bigger and better,
    The place will be great!
    You’ll have it all
    With barely a wait!”

    You shooed him along
    You both have lots of work,
    But before he left
    You turned with a plum,

    “This one’s on the house,”
    You say, but insist,
    “This year, I’d better
    Be on your GOOD list!”

    Santa Manor is the home of Santa Claus along with Mrs. Claus and three of their top elves. The land also features santa's workshop and the stable which houses Santa's Precious reindeer. I built this house picturing gingerbread houses and the typical christmas themes in mind. I feel like santa would always have his house decorated for christmas because in a way it never ends for him or his family.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Chris Kringle and his wife are loosely biased on the 1970's "Santa Clause is Comin to Town" by Raankin:Bass productions. I made the helpers a teen, a child and a toddler. The reindeer are really Greyhound dogs.. I wanted to make the reindeer bigger But could not manipulate the Greatdane as well as I was able to manipulate the greyhound.This BnS109 - Sim CAS Challenge was fun & interesting it challenged me with Making Dogs Reindeer.. I am proud of this creation- I feel for myself I have out done what I usually do in CAS...I have thought myself that- I am a better Builder than I am in CAS- (Yet I was honored with having 2 of my Households become Maxis favorites).. So I guess i am more creative then i think..

    ENTRY DETAILS: Kris Kringel is sure a jolly fellow, he loves his job and his life, No wonder when he has such an awsome wife, three kids they have, with cute pointy ears. they make toys in a hurry, so need to worry. Christmas is coming again this year! I have made Kris kringel, his wife Amelia kringel and their three beautiful children who also happens to be their helpers, what a great way to teach your children the gift of giving! So Kringel was lucky enough to get to name to of his kids, but he's not the most inventive one with names, so they ended up beeing called Kristina kringel and Kristian Kringel, Amelia thought the third child should have a diffrent name and named her Ava, They love eachother very much and are having a blast together!

    ENTRY DETAILS: After the elf disaster of 2018, Santa and crew needed a new house, stables, and workplace as soon as possible! Luckily, I am very good in a time crunch! I found a new lot for Santa not far from the old one, and I set to work building and designing.
    I was given only a few must-haves from Santa's wife, Katrina:
    1. All plumbing must be as modern as possible.
    2. The antique furnishings they had in storage from relatives now gone were to be used.
    3. A large workshop, but also a large fun/entertainment area for those long winter days after Christmas, to relieve the stress of a very hectic season.
    4. A lot of red, which is her favorite color, because she says it cheers even the snowiest or foggiest days. And Kris's favorite color is green, so as much green as possible too!
    And then, what luck! The community pitched in, with donations garlore! There was beds for the elves, and miscellaneous decorations for all the rooms and outside. Baby stuff for Karter, and a new laundry room for all! And things to entertain the dull hours away, such as a bowling alley, disco, and gym! Work benches and storage shelves for Santa's new shop. And everything new!
    I designed my way around all the donated things. A beautiful house emerged, and I was glad. The stables and workshop took more time, just a tad. With five bedrooms, 5 and a half bathrooms, and two locker rooms, the place is immense. But it was definitely time well spent!
    Now Santa's family and reindeer have a new, safer place to stay. Doing all this certainly made my day!
    The lot traits are: home studio, Penny pixies, and homey.

Now the elves are not able to use the top bunks, but they don't mind. I figured every elf needs a train set, but unfortunately it was over $5000.00 and not in the budget, so we had to return it to the store (please ignore the trains in the pictures, I didn't have the heart to remove it completely)

    ENTRY DETAILS: In starting this build, I envisioned an Old World Santa scenario. I was inspired by the architectural style of ares like Bavaria with half-timbered exteriors. The interiors are rustic and Old World as well. There are modern conveniences in the bathrooms but not much in the way of modern entertainments like computers and TVs. The client's helpers really need to stay focused on their work to keep up with demand, and Mr. Klaus really prefers handcrafts and reading for entertainment anyway.

    #BnS110 - Young Minds

    The deadline for this challenge is 9th January 2019


    Double-checking the address, you follow the walkway up to the front door. It’s an older house, but someone has put effort into the upkeep and looks welcoming. The message only said that your assistance would be of great help, but no other details.

    You go to knock but the door gives way with a creek under your knuckles. The air has that faint tint of chalk dust, incongruent with the image the house presented upon approach.

    “Hello?” you call out, not wanting to intrude without invitation. Not to mention feeling slightly uneasy at the open door.

    There comes a crash from somewhere inside, but then a voice calls back, “Hello! Yes, I’m here! Just a moment!”

    And true to word, a moment later a kindly-looking older gentleman is at the door. He’s dressed in overalls, and from the look and smell of it, he’s covered in chalk-dust.

    “Mr. Gizinski?” you ask, just to ensure you really are at the right house.

    “Yes, sorry, I was just cleaning the erasers. Come in, come in!”

    You follow him into the living room - or what would have usually been a living room, except this one was filled with small desks and chairs, a chalkboard, easels, toys, and boxes of who-knows-what. Shelves filled with books lined every wall. There is so much crammed into the room that there’s hardly any room to walk.

    “As you can see, I’m running out of space here,” he says, pushing some desks aside to make more room for the two of you. “That’s why I need you.”

    “Oh! You wish for… an addition?”

    “No, no. Oh no, that would never do. It would look so awkward on this house…”

    You can appreciate a person who appreciates architectural aesthetics.

    “No, I think I need a whole new place, a new daycare and school for these delightful children! My passion has always been expanding the minds of our youth, bringing the wide knowledge of the world into their grasps and watching their eyes fill with wonder.”

    “Oh! Yes, I see, a daycare.” You glance around at all the desks and learning toys. “I must say, I’ve never seen one that is so- well… educational!”

    “That’s why the parents come to me, I think. My daycare isn’t just a babysitting service, I teach them things that the schools don’t. Sure, they learn maths and languages, but what about a love of arts? Appreciation for nature? Ancient history and future technologies? I want them to know that ‘there are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy’!”

    You recognize the quote from Shakespeare, and find yourself wishing you had had him as a teacher back in your day! So much passion, so much love for the children. It’s a refreshing experience and you are being caught up in it, already starting to sketch out some ideas.

    “So, school area, bathrooms, kitchen,” you mumble as you go.

    “Yes, yes! And play and nap areas,” he adds.

    You look up and smile. “I think you - and your children - are going to be quiet happy.”


    THE BRIEF


    Create a daycare center with space for the following:
    Cafeteria
    Restrooms
    Learning area
    Play area
    Nap area
    The layout should be mostly open to allow for one adult to oversee multiple children
    Size: no larger than 30x30
    Budget: 89,000

    Room Challenge

    Create the play area for the daycare. It can be indoor or outdoor, but it cannot be more than 35 squares in total.
    Budget: 12, 000

    Sims Challenge

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have a very fond memory from when I was toddler, my mom would bring me to an indoor garden to run around. What a wonderful place in the dead of winter! I still think indoor public gardens are a wonderful luxury in winter. Anyways, this build is a daycare for toddlers with a Fort built around a center atrium. It is a square build with a round dome to accommodate the magnolia tree. The center atrium is the play area for the toddlers. Mr. Gizinski and his daughter live on site.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Dino Daycare is a daycare for toddlers and kids. We believe in learning through play and therefore provide a safe environment for 6 learners in total. We have a reading corner, a creative corner, a fantasy play area, carpet time, we do not believe in worksheets, so tables are there for lunch time or for play time. We have a sandpit area, monkey bars and splash-pool. We also teach the kids about gardening etc. Layout of the daycare is open-plan so the 2 daycare-moms can see what is happening at all times. We have a separate bathroom for boys and girls and we also have a toddler bathroom. The owner of the daycare, Izumi Yoshida, regularly makes her rounds through the daycare and also loves to read stories to the kids. She has had experience with kids with learning barriers, etc, so she put in a bubble wall as it seems to calm them down while the other kids are playing. It is also very important to have good communication with parents and staff so Izumi made sure to have an office. If the teacher is busy and parents want to see the teacher, the not so important stuff is written down and put in the mailbox which is apparently in the office

    ENTRY DETAILS: This small daycare caters mostly to toddlers, but it does have a couple of bassinets for babies as well. The lawn was specially planted to make the grounds more appealing to children. The fenced back yard has plenty of room for them to play or just wander around without risking them wandering out into the street or into the desert. If for any reason the daycare ever had to close and be sold, it can easily be converted into a house.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Colorful Castle Daycare has an open floor plan for keeping an eye on the children as much as Simly possible. The reception/ child check-in is inside the front door. The bathrooms and room dividers section off the nap area from the other areas, but one can see through the slotted room divider easily. There are two play areas, one inside and one outside, with educational and fun toys as well as a reading "circle" and activity tables. Two large bathrooms complete with tubs and toddler potties will help keep kids clean and happy. The is a full kitchen with large table to eat at. And there is, of course, a large learning area! Fences surround the two doors into the building and divide the play area from the entrance, with gates which lock. This is to prevent children from just running out of the building into possible dangers. There is also a gate and fence around the reception area. All you need to add is workers and kids to have a great time at this daycare!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Mr. Gizinski was really excited about his new daycare center and he named it "Bright Tomorrows Daycare". He worked hard at laying out a plan to make it run smoothly and give him the opportunity to teach those young minds. Reluctantly, he decided that he just couldn't accept toddlers. Since this is a one-man operation, he just couldn't devote the extra time to the toddlers that they would need. But he designed the new center to have all the facilities he would need for his dear children - a reading center with loads of books and a puppet theater, arts and crafts, a teaching center, play area, kitchen and dining room, and a quiet area in the corner without windows where the children could take naps. The center of the room was open, with plenty of space for group games like "Mother May I?" and "Simon Says", and activities such as exercises and dancing. Outside there is a playground and a garden area so he can teach them to grow plants and watch them wonder at nature as their plants start to grow. There's also a couple of bird feeders to encourage bird watching.

    Knowing that Mr Gizinski was passionate about a unique way to learn and had so much love for children.. I went back in my mind to the Many wonderful Schools from Sims 3 which had very pleasing architectural aesthetics. Such as the Sims 3 Aurora Skies ,- Nature & Nurture learning Academy ,The Tiny Protogy Learning Center and the newest Sims 4 LLama Land Library. I tried to take aspects I felt he would appreciate from each one and combined them in to this - The Lil'Shakespeare library..

    #BnS111 - Anchors Aweigh

    The deadline for this challenge is 23rd January 2019


    You arrive at the marina with time to spare. Karl had told you that your meeting was with a businessman, but he wanted to meet you at the docks. You arrive at the slip number and moored in front of you is a somewhat derelict boat, held in place by a crane. You strain your eyes upward and see a woman on board cleaning the glass on a port hole, and a man gathering up some rope.

    "Ahoy there" calls the man, waving his hand over his head. He tells you to board the yacht via the gangplank from the pier.

    Once on-board, the man walks over to you and shakes your hand. His hands feel calloused and rough. As he smiles at you, you notice there are crinkles around his eyes and his face looks weather beaten. “Isn’t she a beaut?" he says, admiring the boat. You look around the boat nodding your head, but see planks missing from the main walkway and some seawood dangling from a rigging.

    "Oh don't mind how she looks now...it's how she's going to look."

    You peer at him not quite understanding what he means and think that you might be the next swabbie.

    "umm....Mr....", you start.

    "Oh, sorry, name's John, Captain John Buttercups, and the little lady up there is my First Mate, Cordelia, and this boat used to be magnificent until she tangled with a hurricane off the coast. She sunk near some rocks, but we salvaged her and she's back. And that's where you come in."

    "It is?" you say, still not quite sure what the Captain is looking for.

    "Yes, I was hoping that you would take on the job of restoring her to her former glory."

    "Well, I am not in the habit of restoring boats, Captain..." you start to say.

    "But a boat is like a house, just on water. I know you can do it. And it's not like we want a cruise liner or anything" Captain says smiling broadly.

    "Well, that's true, you say. So, what exactly are you looking for?" You take out your pad and pen and start taking notes.

    "Well, the boat is completely gutted, so I would say 3 bedrooms, a master bedroom, a guest bedroom and the crew's quarters. We really want the master bedroom to be luxurious with our own en suite and balcony. The crew's quarters can be shared, but needs 2 single beds. And there should be another bathroom."

    "Anything else?" you ask jotting things down.

    "Well, of course, a galley kitchen...most definitely a chef's kitchen. And a grand living space with a bar and some entertainment. And Cordelia likes to read out on deck, so a good library and lots of deck chairs to relax and enjoy the ocean. Any other surprises would be welcome to help us relax and enjoy life. But that's about it."

    You look at the boat again and close your notebook as a seagull squawks overhead. “I think we can do this. So, I guess it's Anchors Aweigh!"

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Cap'n John Buttercups and his first mate/wife Cordelia love the freedom of the ocean and spending the many simoleons John got from selling deep-sea loot on improving their houseboat. Cordelia is often judged for being with such an older man, but she's not (just) a gold digger; more reserved than her other half yet also a nature lover, the fit is perfect with John self-assured enough for the both of them and the rest of their shared lifetime with a passion to share between them. They both have a decent tan and are fairly fit due to their outdoorsy lifestyle. John is still quite a babe despite his age, as his passion for life and his young wife keep him sprightly.

    ENTRY DETAILS: For this build, I attempted realism. I didn't want my boat to feel landlocked, so a lot of the budget was spent on water. The end result is a small yacht with three bedrooms and three bathrooms which looks like it could take at least a bit of a turn around a private lake. Rooms are small, with as much function to each as possible. More information is on my tumblr, linked above.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes; This is my first entry into a Build-N-Share competition and my first time working with a budget, so I'd like to know how I did allocating simoleons. For example; was the giant lake a good decision, despite how small the yacht ended up?

    ENTRY DETAILS: I was inspired by luxury yachts and decided to try and recreate one myself. This was a challenge, I only had a couple of days and I'd never built a 'boat' before. I wanted something more modern on the outside but luxury traditional on the inside. There's a mix of styles. Blue and white is a theme throughout, very nautical but also neutral and calming.

Cordelia lived on the coast but spent a lot of time at sea as well. The two met in High School and instantly hit it off, marrying as soon as they could and setting out to live their lives at sea as much as possible. When their first ship was badly damaged, it seemed the perfect time to have a houseboat built just for them.

    #BnS112 - Seeing Double

    The deadline for this challenge is 6th February 2019


    You almost want to look at your drink and make sure someone didn’t slip something into it. You’ve seen twins before, but not quite like this. They are not only identical in their features, but their hair is done the same way, they have the exact same outfit on, and even their accessories match!

    “We couldn’t ever be away from one another,” the first says. You think this one is Freya, but you’ve already gotten them mixed up.

    The other, whom you are sure is Phoebe, agrees. “It would break our hearts!”

    “And besides, this will help us save on bills!”

    Well, that is a very practical approach, you agree.

    “So we’d like a house that matches us!” You’ve given up trying to remember which one is which now.

    “Well, two, but one.”

    “Oh, a duplex!” You’re a little surprised that they didn’t seem to know the term but you finally realize what they’ve been getting at. “Two houses in a single building.”

    They both grin. Even their reactions perfectly mirror one another.

    “Perfect!” they say in unison

    “So what do you both need in your houses?”

    They each begin to speak, finishing each other’s sentences and reminding one another of a forgotten detail or offering a new idea. Eventually you have a list and go back over it to be sure.

    “So you’ll each need two bedrooms, a third spare room that can be used as an office or hobby room, open living area, a shared backyard for ‘wicked’ parties with a pool and outdoor facilities. You generally want a more modern feel but you’re open to ideas, and you’d love a balcony somewhere to enjoy the views.”

    They both nod excitedly as you read off each point and finally clap at the end.

    “You’re the best!” Phoebe says - you think?

    “We can’t thank you enough!” Freya cries - maybe?


    THE BRIEF

But like Matching book ends they complement each other. One is neat , the other is a slob. One is artistic ,the other wants to be a you-tube celebrity. They both love the out doors and they both love to entertain company.. With many friends they have fun and party in to the night ..

    Freya and Phoebe have decided to move to the beautiful Siminican Republic! Their jobs give them the flexibility to work from home, so they figured it might as well be somewhere fun! They have purchased a modern Caribbean style home that has the perfect backyard for throwing some great parties. They are excited to begin their new life in a tropical country.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Build submission for clients, Phoebe and Freya and the "Seeing Double" Challenge. After seeing some prior submissions on the thread, I wanted to come up with an option for the twins that was more homey, but still offered a modern style and finish. Coming in under budget, this twin farmhouse duplex is designed to be newly renovated and perfectly mirrored. Each of the twin residencies feature; 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, a small office space, open living & eating quarters, hobby room, as well as a shared pool & bar patio. Enjoy!
    Quick tip, identifying the twins is easy! Phoebe is left handed, and Freya is right! ... or... is it... the other way around ?

So, when it comes to their homes they want them to be alike too. The two duplex units in this building are the same, but mirror images of each other. Even the decor is the same. There are 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in each unit, with an office that could be converted easily to a third bedroom. Each unit has a private balcony in the front, with a long shared balcony in the back overlooking the pool. They love to entertain so the back patio and pool area is large enough to host fabulous parties!

    Welcome to 'Two as One'
    These little duplex houses are as identical as their owners. They are each others mirror images but because of the 'hugging C-shapes' of the ground-floor, there are slight differences. To keep things simple, I've arranged the images so that the pictures on the left are of the left house, and the pictures on the right of the right house. The twins are definitely enjoying this place! I hope you have as well :)
    Thank you for taking the tour!
    P.S. My apologies for the lack of story/text, I am just squeezing this one in even though I actually don't really have the time :wink:

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Mullet, business in the front, party in the back! The duplex has a modern feel and some bold colours (or should I say, chaotic :D ). Both homes are almost completely the same, but there's a slight variation of colours in the interior, and the left home has a study where the right home has a social media room. Both sides have 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The small balcony is shared and the backyard has a pool, bar, seating area and BBQ for all dem wild parties. Furniture isn't top of the line, I struggled to keep it within budget, but surely the ladies can save up some money and upgrade later :# (or just move it to a cheaper lot... kind of shot myself in the foot there) The only 2 rooms not pictured in the slideshow are the tiny bathrooms on the ground floor.

    ENTRY DETAILS: One of my favorite builds I did in Sims 3 was for BnS Week 14 (that was in September 2009!!!!). It was also a duplex, and I called it Double the Fun! I was excited to re-imagine this Sim 3 build with our Sims 4 building tools. And I could luckily accomplish a lot of it with the release of the new terrain tools. While the units are mirror images of each other down to most accents and furnishings, each sister has chosen colors and other details suited to their individual personalities. For examples, Freya prefers red while Phoebe's favorite color is blue. And Freya's creative outlet is painting while Phoebe loves streaming her gaming sessions and creating videos for SimTube.

    #BnS113 - Love Shack

    The deadline for this challenge is 20th February 2019


    Ready for a blast from the past? We are firing up the WAYBACK MACHINE and dusting off a vintage Sims 3 challenge from Week 50 - the very first year of the Sims 3 BuildnShare challenge. Buckle up and go back in time with us!

    You weren't sure where to look. The couple in front of you seemed to have forgotten you were there. Sitting in front of you on the opposite couch were The Meronas, Carlos and Betty. Newlyweds, of course. They were entwined around each other now, Betty in Carlos's lap.

    It started with some simple affectionate patting as they started to explain how they had decided to have a modest wedding and set that money aside to have a honeymoon retreat built. "Somewhere romantic," Betty had said as Carlos rubbed her knee.

    After informing you that they wanted a secluded, romantic hideaway and how they only had a budget of 35,000 simoleans, you looked down to jot down some notes. By the time you looked back up, Betty was in Carlos' lap and they were in full "make out" mode.

    You tried clearing your throat softly at first, but they continued. After a few more moments, you decided to just get up and leave them alone for a bit.


    THE BRIEF


    Budget: 35,000 [gallery cost]
    Size: No larger than 30x20 lot
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bath
    Be sure to pick a lot that will work well for a romantic getaway
    Lot cost is not a factor in this challenge.


    Sim Challenge

    Create Carlos and Betty Merona as sims and take pictures of them on their honeymoon! Share their traits and outfits as well as candid shots with us.


    Room Challenge

    Carlos and Betty want a cozy dining room for romantic dinners! Budget: 10,000

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is the perfect place for that high paced city living couple to come to recharge their romance while unplugging from their everyday life. The one bedroom is detached from the rest of the house creating a type of intimacy and privacy any couple would crave. While you'll be spending most of the time in the bedroom there is a quaint kitchen with everything you'll need to refuel you for other activities. The spa like bathroom is the perfect place for a candle lit soak, to relieve those sore muscles. A cozy living space is ideal to Netflix and chill or if you'd rather slow dance to your favorite Babyface song. All in all this getaway is just what every couples should experience once in their relationship.

    ENTRY DETAILS: After all the stress and excitement of the wedding, Betty and Carlos knew they wanted to honeymoon someplace quiet and secluded. They just wanted to get away from it all. And the perfect place turned out to be a small lot that sits on the lake in Windenburg. It was totally secluded, surrounded by trees and foliage. The lake was perfect for fishing, and there were plenty of hiking trails in the area.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Is your sim looking for a place to propose, have a honeymoon, a romantic getaway or just wants a lovely & romantic home for two? This cozy, romantic cottage has what your sim couple needs to have that special time alone! Your sims will especially love the hot tub, fireplace & loveseats, bonfire, dual bathtubs, candlelight & flowers. If they are feeling playful there's a game table, books, plus a small TV (big enough to watch a romantic movie but not so big it is an overly-fun distraction to the hubby... just sayin'...). (And all sims love the globe bar, so I just had to add one of those. Romantic aura and moodlet objects will also help them stay in the mood for love (plus it has the 'romantic' lot trait)!
    The evening’s highlight is a lovely garden gazebo with a special dinner for two (click the swans for a flirty moodlet, click the violin to hire a violinist, and click the table for food and drink instantly - or even choose chocolate in the fountain!). The mystical tree and alien flowers add a lovely iridescent quality and an extra-romantic feel to the back yard/garden, especially at night. Romance is in the air everywhere on this lot... and all for under $35,000!
    Funny aside note... when I tested the lot I had the couple use the buffet table in the gazebo to 'order' their meal, and after their time in the back yard they went into the home. Well, I was not paying attention to the back yard but at one point I happened to lower the wall and 'lo-and-behold' there was a group of neighbors (probably that silly 'welcome wagon' group) eating away, visiting with each other and enjoying the back yard. They didn't even get distracted by the need to bother the couple by knocking on the door, loafing on the porch, or leaving an an offended huff... win-win. Neighbors are won over with no annoyance. Lol!

    How a mailroom technician met a dirt digger is anybody's guess, but Carlos and Betty have been inseparable since they met. These two were lucky enough to find their soulmate early on, and they're making the most of their new life together.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Caros and Betty Merona grew up together, the children of best friends who hoped their children would als o be friends. Fortunately, the two of them got along very well and it was only natural that they begin to date in their teens, becoming almost inseparable. They married as soon as they could, being so deeply in love that the idea of doing anything else never occurred to them. Carlos wanted to honeymoon in the countryside while Betty preferred the beach. The little hideaway in Brindleton Bay seemed like the perfect compromise.

Ideal for moonlit walks on the beach and afternoons lounging in the warm sun enjoying the bracing breeze from the bay.

    ENTRY DETAILS: In the Panhandle of Florida where I'm from, there are several modern beach communities along Hwy 30A like Seaside and Water Color that are planned communities with bright, pastel houses in a typical beachhouse style. That's where I drew my inspiration for this Love Shack. It's a tiny one bedroom/one bath - cozy but with all the ameneties a honeymooning couple would need. Hot tub did you say? Of course! Your lovebird sims can have a soak and enjoy the ocean view, or whatever else they may feel like getting up to It's nestled right near the water, perfect for romantic strolls on the beach.

    #BnS114 - The Tables Have Turned

    The deadline for this challenge is 13th March 2019

    You sit back at your desk and smile. The last project took a lot out of you, but you are so happy you could help. You think back on many of your clients and how pleased they were with your work. But really, you could use a bit of a break, you think.

    Karl comes in and hands you a stack of mail. You motion for her to sit as you flip through it, mainly bills and junk.

    “So, who’s next?” you ask.

    “Actually- ah, nobody.”

    “Really?”

    “Really,” he says. “I guess it’s just a quiet month. We have some interest for a few months from now, but I think your schedule is free.”

    You ponder this for a minute, then say, “In that case, Karl, we have a client!”

    “Oh?” He perks up, as curious about why he doesn’t know this as he is about who the client is.

    “I have been living in the same place, with the same decor for years now! After helping so many others realize their dream houses, I think it’s time I do something about my own!”

    “But you love that house!” Karl protests.

    You laugh. “Yes I do. I do love that house. But the inside is so dated! The decor, the colors, the style... It may have been me once, but it isn’t me anymore. Karl - I am going to give myself a makeover for a change!”


    THE BRIEF

    This challenge will be quite different. This month we are asking you to build your house in the game. No, not your dream house, your actual real house. To the best of your and the game’s ability, we want you to build the house, apartment, or residence you currently live as close as you can.
    Then, give your home a makeover! Do not add, remove, or change any exterior walls. This includes adding detached structures - no exterior walls can be added or removed. The exterior structure of the building must stay exactly as it is. You can swap a door for an arch of the same size and vise versa. You can swap windows for the same size windows. Fences and half-walls can be added, changed or removed. No other changes are allowed to the exterior structure of the home.
    Beyond that, you are free to change the type and style of floors, walls, any built-ins like cabinets and plumbing, you can repurpose rooms and change the interior layout if you wish.
    Take before and after shots to show us how you have reimagined your home! Take enough to really give us a feel for how it is now and how you envision it in the future.
    There is no budget for this build! There are too many various homes to try to limit it - this challenge is all about the before and after.
    Because of the dual build you will have THREE weeks to work on this challenge.

    Sim Challenge:
    Are YOU due for a personal makeover? Need a new hairstyle? A new fashion sense? Now's your time to make it happen. Show us your current simself and how you'd like to make yourself over.

    Room Challenge:
    Don't have time to do over the whole house? Pick the room or area (like an bedroom/ensuite or open plan kitchen/dining) you'd most like to update and make it happen!

    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS114 when you upload your creations, any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Before the reno, this half of a duplex was sorely in need of major TLC! It's traits were Filthy, Creepy Crawlies, and Grody! The yard was a bit of a mess, and there was no curb appeal. The inside had water damage and tile floors that were chipped and cracked. The floor plan was spacious, but it could have been better.
    After the reno, the space was put to better use. The mess and stacks of stuff where carefully hidden away in the storage units, and the place is now fresh, clean, and bug free! It has tons of curb appeal!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I decided to not change my exterior (besides the backyard) because I wouldn't change anything in real life. My home is sloped. The first floor is street level and there is a shared driveway in the back that is down a hill, therefore the basement actually opens up to the backyard. I was not able to convey that with the tools in the game. Also my home shares a wall with the house next door. I decided to build that other house in my build but did not furnish the other home. It is just there to get the complete look of my house.

    ENTY DETAILS: My house was originally built in 1961, but it has been updated a bit. It's already pretty nice, so there weren't too many changes I wanted to make. The current decorating scheme could be described as eclectic, as pieces were bought or replaced as needed without much attempt to make sure it all went together. Also there's not much in the way of landscaping, so I added to that. The basement bar might actually become a reality one day.

    ENTRY DETAILS: When living at my Mother-in-Laws home, I always imagined how I would have like to remodel it. I lived in the 'Summer Cabin' side, where a bathroom is jointed to the 'Main Home' for easier access. For the remodel I completely separated the Summer Cabins interior access from the main home, and transformed it into a Year-Round Rental, to generate an additional income for my in-laws. This was a HUGE project for me, but it was very fun, and I enjoyed creating the renovation. Enjoy!

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is my dream home I moved into with my hubby and daughter last summer. I haven't finished decorating, but will soon. So in the reno, all I did was a remodel of my master bath (which we will be doing this summer) and I decorated my bedroom, finished up the dining, just placed new furniture in my living room (which WILL happen soon) and redecorated in a whimsical way in my daughter's rooms (yes, rooms...she has two! lol) for when she goes to college and they become MINE! ;-) We actually live on the lake with a fishing dock and boat dock but there's nothing like that in the sims, sadly. So I put in a fishing hole.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure...I already know I forgot to put dirt around my front tree. OOPS! Meant to...but I'm too tired to fix it. That was a HARD challenge for me. I'm terrible with roofing, so if you see how I could have done it better or have tips, that's VERY welcome!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This was by far the most difficult build I’ve ever done. The home is built into a downward incline on a deep lot and involves basement walk-outs. Since sim lot edges all must end on level ground, I did my best to create an area that serves the same functionality and the ‘feel’ of the back yard. The home is a duplex with 7 bedrooms, a photo studio (turned to studio/study in reno), woodworking shop/garage (cars in garage in reno), and pet ready. (Note: Irl actually houses up to 10 and currently 2 cats, 3 dogs, 7 cars and 1 truck!)

    ENTRY DETAILS: We knew this house needed some work even before we moved in, and we've been making changes little by little as we go along. There's nothing that needs doing, we're comfortable the way it is. But there are a few things that it would be nice to change. Most of it is cosmetic. This challenge was fun to see what it might look like when we're finished! :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: I live in an old house which dates back to the early '70s, so the room that I'm currently staying in has had different tenants over the years. The only thing new about my current room is the red paint job, but aside from that, everything's dated, with lots of clutter left behind by family members who have already left. I've done what I could to make it livable, but with my current budget, that's the best I can do. The ensuite next to it is also dated, and the biggest thing I dislike in it is the tiles. This makes it hard to spot any grime and dirt accumulating. Another thing is the plumbing, which hasn't been looked at in decades. The shower is not working, so we bathe there by filling up buckets with water and use a small dipper to pour water over ourselves.
    Now for my dream renovation. I wanted to give my room a more masculine feel by adding blue as well as industrial textures like concrete. I also added a white wall for a bit more brightness. The room has thick curtains because I hate sunlight. Sunlight here is scorching hot, so it's best to have some thick curtains. To compensate for that, I added more lights, unlike the previous room that had minimal lighting. The desk area is still a bit cluttered but more organized, and the bed has been changed to a double for more comfort. As for the ensuite, I removed the horrendous tiles and replaced them with white ones so that my bathroom will look clean, and I can easily spot anything that needs cleaning. I prefer baths more than showers, so I got a huge bathtub and removed that old shower area. The old American-style toilet has been replaced with a Japanese one, which is electronic and cleans your bum as well, which means less wiping with toilet paper. There is also space in the bathroom now to add a laundry basket.

    #BnS115 - Man Cave

    The deadline for this challenge is 27th March 2019

    It’s not that he seems unhappy, exactly, or even displeased with you. He just seems flat. As if there is no excitement or emotion there at all. “I’d like a cave,” Mr. Durtal says.

    “Oh, I enjoy doing man caves! So much room for creativity. Sports memorabilia, wet bar, maybe some arcade games?”

    But he shakes his head. “No, I mean a cave. Literally, a cave.”

    “A cave?”

    He nods.

    “As in, a hole in a rock?”

    He nods again. “A cave. Made habitable, of course. Curtains, table, chairs, bed… all natural materials that, well, look like they’d belong in a cave.”

    Well, who are you to judge others’ interests, right? “Well, I admit, this is a first for me.”

    “I love the idea of having a real cave,” he says. “Where I can… well, y’know, just be me.”

    You think you know what he means and you really do not want that mental image. Though, speaking of image, this is not what you had in mind when Mr. Durtal sat down across from you. He seems so clean-cut, modern clothes, nothing about him screamed ‘caveman’.
    “But, with walls, of course, yes?”

    “Not necessarily. Look, I admit, I may not know exactly how to go about it, but I want to live in a cave. Like, you know, cavemen did. It’s just something I’ve always wanted to do.”

    You fidget with your pencil. “Nothing modern at all?”

    “Well… it could use some basic plumbing. A fridge would be nice, too. But make them look as ‘stone-agy’ as you can. Nothing overtly modern; no tv or anything.”

    “So leather, furs, wood, definitely stone, and of course, fire,” you say as you start making notes.

    “Exactly!” he says.

    You put down the pencil and smile. “I think that’s all do-able, Nean.”

    He seems surprised to hear it, and it’s sort of a relief to see some spark of emotion on his face at last. “Really?”

    “Of course,” you say. “There is a reason people come to me, after all.”

    He breaks into a wide grin. “This is amazing! You are the first architect who has accepted my request!”

    “Oh? How many have you asked?”

    “Twenty-seven,” he says.

    “Ah.” Well, that explains his initial mood. “Well, I guess that makes me lucky number twenty-eight!”


    THE BRIEF

    §80,000 budget
    Create a “cave” house.
    The basic needs of your sim must be met - hunger, bladder, hygiene, energy, fun - but you have wide leeway in how to meet them.
    All items should be made to blend as much as possible with the theme. Avoid anything too overtly modern.
    Landscaping must complement the theme.

    Sim Challenge

    Create your cave client, Nean Durtal.

    Room Challenge

    No room challenge this round

    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS115 when you upload your creations, any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The cave is a bit under ground level. Since is a cave, the idea of having different rooms goes out of the non-existent window… this is a single-space living area. A curtain was placed on the entry. Inside we have a bed, a small table and chair, bathtube and sink, a small fireplace. Outside: camping area with a firepit and grill.

(Please note that due to aesthetic choices the internal overhead shot shows little more than the shape of the cave. Unfortunately it can't be helped. I've tried to include enough pictures of the layout so you can get a good idea of how things relate to one another)

    ENTRY DETAILS: Mr. Nean should be able to live in this cave almost self sufficient.
    The entrance to the cave lies behind a swimable fishpond, a half cave with a hole in the top, to use as space for a fire pit. The stairs lead down into the kitchen area, which the game sees as outdoor space, but it has roofs, so there should no rain or snow get inside. During play testing I added a stove, which could be removed if you like to have a more real stone-age feeling. I used pane-less windows and some arches, which in game act as normal windows and doors.
    The living room is connected to a small sunken garden with some planting pots (self made).
    There are two fireplaces, one in the bedroom, and another in the living room.
    No electrical lights throughout the lot.
    For skill building we have a workbench, a guitar (self made), a chess table, an easel, a bookcase, small mirror.
    Also outside there is a born fire (fun and dancing skill) and a yoga mat, the fishing pond of course.
    The toilet is also self made.
    Since we live in modern times even Sims laws call for fire protection, so I added a fire alarm in every room (I placed them over the doors, easy to remove for stone-age experience.)

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    I decided to go with a more contemporary look- if by contemporary you mean 100 BCE instead of the Neolithic. From the Anasazi people of North America, to the Nabateans of the Arabian peninsula, to even some Medieval Europeans, people have been carving out dwellings in the sides of mountains for a very long time- some even still do it today! This lot is an homage to that long and varied history.

    ENTRY DETAILS: When it comes time to change houses, some sims want to take it back to the basics, and some sims want to take it back to the basics. This cave home is the lot for the latter – everything a sim needs to maintain a happy life but nothing in the way of overly-modern accessories. Everything a sim needs to survive and prosper - including food and recreation - can be found without ever leaving home or even putting on pants. Note: As with real caves, dogs might appear randomly to enjoy people who enjoy the cave lifestyle.

However if you're able to find someone who loves the caveman lifestlye there's enough room for two!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Nean Durtal had always known he wanted to live in a cave. But he was also practical - from the beginning he was willing to concede to basic plumbing and a refrigerator in his dream cave. As work progressed, however, he decided there were a few other things he better have. The fire pit he wanted in the cave, he decided to move outside for safety sake. A wood stove would be a good idea. And windows in the front, both to let some light in, and to let smoke out from the wood stove and all the candles. And to help even more, he wanted a vent hood over the stove. And finally, for safety sake, he ordered a smoke alarm and a fire extinguisher. Other than that, he would be roughing it!! And, to his great delight, the lot he chose had a pond that made a great fishing hole, as well as a swimming hole (play tested). And there was plenty of room for gardening.

I definitely tried to make him look like someone you'd never suspect would live in a cave. He's a modern man who made his money in a business empire, while daydreaming about the days of ancient empires.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    I built Nean a natural cave with an excavated/carved out completely open floor plan living area with the exception of privacy walls for the bathroom. Amenities include a full kitchen, but there's also a campfire if he'd rather just roast a fish and have marshmallows for dessert. Also included; chess table, guitar, bookshelf, full size bed, stone bedside tables, candles and lanterns. Tucked under the staircase is a stone storage chest and extra supplies.
    Most flooring is natural sand which I felt was appropriate for an island cave near the beach. But there is stone tiling under the kitchen area and in the bathroom. Natural Woven rugs lay under the bed and in front of the kitchen sink, plus stone slabs (rugs) underneath the campfire area and in the bathroom.
    Nean has some beautiful natural lighting from glowing crystals adorning the walls throughout the cave. Other decorations include; twisted wood wreath, heart wood carving, stone sculptures, ancient pottery, woven baskets and a cave bear to keep him company.
    This cave also has a wonderful bonus area accessed by an arch off the kitchen. A small landing with a stone bench, end table, towels and robe supports a staircase leading down to a natural spring water pool that glows invitingly with the aqua light of more crystals in the water.
    Outside lanterns lead the way to the hidden entrance, a chimney sits atop the cave for smoke ventilation and an easel underneath a pine tree to paint the beautiful landscape surrounding Nean's new home.
    *NOTE - This build was made using a copy of my Custom Template save. I used rucolasheep's Absolutely Empty Lot download to clear the lot before saving the template because I had another build there previously and wanted it empty for all future new gameplay saves. That's why it shows this Sim as the original builder. No stealing on my part!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Nean is an outdoor enthusist, he loves to collect things. He is athletic and prefers to be by himself. Nean is very good at his job, unfortunately he finds his job quite stressful (being around people). He wants to have a weekend home where he and his Foxy Lady can escape reality. He wants to build things, fish, live off the land and just generally enjoy the peace of the outdoors. Nean has mastered the fishing, handiness, logic and gardening skill. So he will have no trouble living in his cave. Foxy Lady is his loyal companion. She is an adventurous hunter. She is a special breed, a mix between a large dog and a fox. A new breed I call a Mammoth Fox. Nean and Foxy Lady are very excited to live the primitive life in their new cave!

    ENTRY DETAILS: My take on Nean's house is that of urban cave living. It's still a cave, but it blends in well in Willow Creek and gives Nean the best of both worlds. The interiors are carved stone walls with a natural dirt floor, of course. All the furnishings are as rustic as possible with a composting toilet in the bathroom and all-wood furniture. No new-fangled metals except in the some of the plumbing and appliances. Of course, Nean could bathe in the swimmable pond out back, catch fish in it, then roast them on the campfire if he really wants to go rustic.

    #BnS116 - Safe House

    The deadline for this challenge is 10th April 2019

    You sit staring out at the dark clouds beyond your office window, thinking this is the kind of evening those with something ot hide wait for, where they can move without anyone noticing. The fog is so dense you can’t wait for the work day to be over so you can hurry home and lock the door behind you.

    But not just yet, you have one more meeting scheduled.

    At that moment, Karl knocks on the door. “Ms. Ville is here to see you.”

    “Yes, show her in, Karl.”

    You can’t get a good look at her face under the strange hat she wears on her head. What even is that, a colander? Strange. You can’t help thinking she must be overheating under the bulky, concealing clothes she wears, but you're not one to judge. You put on your best professional smile and ask, “How can we help you?”

    Xenia Ville looks around cautiously, eyes darting into every corner of the office. “Are we private here?”

    “Of course, I’m very discreet and respect my clients’ privacy,” you reply reassuringly.

    “No, I mean, are we being recorded? They can see us you know, the government, they’re always watching.” She shifts nervously.

    “No, we’re not being recorded. I promise.” You’ve dealt with cautious clients before, but this one seems a bit over the top. You’re too professional to reveal your feelings, focusing on the job.

    “Oh good.” But she doesn’t fully relax. “I think something’s going on in my town. I’d like a more secure place to live. Can you help me?”

    “You mean like installing a security system? That’s not something we usually do.”

    She shakes her head. “I mean, a small house. One that's built to blend into the surroundings. Lots of trees and bushes would help, but not up against the house, that’s how they get to you." She looks so sincere that you almost believe her. "I need a secure science lab too. In the basement if possible, so no one can find it..."

    You listen closely, noting it all down. “I think we can handle that. Do you have any color preferences?”

    “Nothing too flashy. I don’t want to draw attention, you understand?”

    “I do," you assure her. "We’ll get right on it.”


    THE BRIEF


    Budget: 45,000
    One bedroom house
    Must blend into its surroundings.
    A science lab with a concealed entrance
    Note: While this challenge is Strangerville related, you don't need to have the pack to enter.

    Room challenge

    Build Xenia’s secret science lab. The size and shape is up to you, and the budget is $15,000.

    Sim Challenge

    Create Xenia Ville and show her hiding out in her home. If you have Strangerville, one trait must be Paranoid. If not, use Erratic. The other traits are up to you. Be sure to share the other traits and Xenia's outfits in your media slideshow.

    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS116 when you upload your creations, any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I don't have StrangVille but I went for a desert theme. (all my lots in Oasis Springs are full so I built it in Newcrest) I didn't add a bunch of trees/bushes like she asked because that might draw suspicion in the desert. I wanted a sleepy little house that passersby wouldn't think twice of never mind think there is a secret lab in the basement. It has a fake lab you first entry and then a secret hidden lab, with a kitchen, toilet and bed in case you get trapped down there.

    ENTRY DETAILS: For most sims, life on the beach in Brindleton Bay would seem idyllic. Not so for Xenia, who's come to a horrifying "realization" that most of the sim government has been taken over by robots who want to destroy simanity and rule the world. Xenia may enjoy post-apocalyptic video games (maybe a bit too much...), but she certainly doesn't want to live through it for real. No, she's going to find out how these dastardly androids tick and put a stop to them, with the help of man's best friend, of course. Xenia and Foxbacon
    I took some inspiritation from Fallout 4 for this one. Another inspiration was the Shingles style, which I felt fits into Brindleton Bay very well.

    LOT NAME: Built on Old Penelope 50x40 lot, $3,500 (Strangerville)
    GALLERY COST: $41,280
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/gallery/xLg1K4y
    ENTRY DETAILS:
    In Brief: Are you a bit unsure of what’s up with Strangerville? Feeling a little paranoid and need to feel safe?? Then this is the home for you! This spacious lot features a border of hills, boulders, plants and fencing for privacy. It’s dog-ready for your ‘guard’ or ‘alert’ dog, has a surveillance camera, and a secret lab with supplies in the basement. It features the ‘Private Dwelling’, ‘Science Lair’, and ‘Peace and Quiet’ lot traits...
    Nosey neighbors? No problem! If any of them manage to get past the fencing, locked gate, hills & boulders on the outer edges of the lot, Xenia is prepared. The door and windows have the appearance of allowing for a chance to peek or get in, but they are locked up tight. The porch is well lit with glass in the door and a surveillance camera to see who’s there before letting anyone in. Even the dog-door is locked to all but her faithful companion and ‘guard’/alert dog, Pinky. Also, all of them have iron guards, just in case, and if a nosey sim tries to peek in, what will they see? All things normal, that’s what. The upstairs is just a normal home.
    Though Xenia is leery of outdoor plants, she loves indoor plants… as long as they have been checked properly to make sure they’re safe… and all of hers have. There are a few statues of the strange local plants, but they are also safe, and ‘housed’ in containment cells, just to be extra safe. In her secret lab room, that is…
    Speaking of the Secret Lab… there is a locked, ‘secret bookcase’ door in Xenia’s bedroom that leads to the basement lab. In it she has a computer for research (and occasional simming!), her lab with a mysterious live local ‘strange plant’ and ‘tendril’ safely encased in her containment cells. There are ‘spoiler items’ that she can use or not use – it’s up to her (you) - she won't be able to use them unless you make them available) - in/on a protective display case (the spoiler items can help you out a bit, if you want to use them - includes a hazmat suit, infection scanner, evidence, infections vaccine, secret dossier, and more). Either way they set a mysterious and inspirational atmosphere, right!?! There is a table to purchase bugs and listen in on other sims. A toilet & sink make it more practical to enjoy her coffee station while reading some of the interesting local books and running tests… And a cloning machine will make fast work of reproducing your.... ummmm... spoiler item... **infection vaccine** ....'cause you really want enough to go around. There are a lot of weirdos in this town. Just sayin'. (No chemical analyzer... only the ones in the town's 'secret lab' work for that step...)
    Xenia and her 'guard dog' Pinky are all set to hold up in Strangerville in their new 'Safe House' and figure out what this mystery is all about! Pinky has loyal, jumpy, and sleuth traits. Will she run and hide or bark at strangers? Or will she assist Xenia with her mystery? Xenia has ‘nerd brain’, bookworm and paranoid traits, which matches up well with the lot traits of Private Dwelling, Science Lair, and Peace & Quiet. It’s as if these two were made for this lot… or was it the lot was made for them? I forget…

It has double walls, security camera, a walled off entrance room with one-way-mirror.In the basement there is a lab for the resident sim to create potions and examine probes of the environment, as well as listen to planted bugs. All that Xenia may feel a little safer away from the "jungle out there". Unfortunately due to the near creek the lab doesn't stay clean very long.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Xenia takes shelter in an old observatory on an island off the coast of Windenburg, specifically on a plot of land called Mid-Nowhere. The observatory was abandoned until Xenia moved in and added a few security features as well as some additions in the basement. The interiors are mostly concrete and steel to withstand harsh weather conditions, and cameras are hidden in the trees to warn Xenia of any trespassers. The one-bedroom home is equipped with heating and cooling as well as the secret bookcase leading down to the basement lab. The lab has the work area, a holding cell, and another bookcase door which leads to the storage room; this is Xenia's escape route just in case the feds are onto her.

She makes sure that her face is always slightly covered and never takes off her gloves (germs, you know). She also doesn't want her finger prints out there. She makes sure that all the electronic items in her house are old (before they put trackers on them). Xenia's life aspiration is to be a renaissance sim. She wants to be good at many things at once. She is erratic, a genius and strives for perfection.

    #BnS117 - The Hawthorne Project - Part IX

    The deadline for this challenge is 24th April 2019

    It has been awhile since you’ve had any applicants for the Hawthorne project, and your heart skips a beat as you spot the subject line of your next email: RE: Hawthorne Project - Please, we’re desperate!

    You quickly open the message, and what you read has you ready to spring into action. This family is truly what Mrs. Emmeline Hawthorne had in mind when she started her philanthropy in the first place. You can’t believe it’s already been almost 6 months since the venerable Mrs. Hawthorne passed away. At 110 it wasn’t really so unexpected, you muse; it was just that her force of will and stage presence had made her seem larger than life and invincible. Shaking your head to clear your thoughts, you click on the email and begin to read...

    Dear Hawthorne Project,

    I’m sure you hear this all the time, but I really never thought I would end up in this situation. I married young, and we immediately began a family. I should have seen the signs then. How controlling he could be, how angry he would get over the slightest things. But he was so handsome, and I was in love. By the time it occurred to me what was really happening, we already had one child, and the second was on the way.

    I thought that as long as his abuse was directed at me, I could take it, for the sake of the children growing up in a whole family. And I did take it. It wasn't until a few years later, when I was now pregnant with our third child, that I realized the true danger of being with him. One morning, I noticed a bruise on our oldest daughter’s arm. At first, I thought my husband had finally flipped and started in on our children, and I was FURIOUS! But when I confronted Alexis about it, she told me it was from a boy at school. But what really made my heart break, is when she told me that it must mean the boy wants to marry her and have a family like me and daddy. It’s time to go, and I am taking the kids with me.

    The three of us are currently sharing a room at my mom's house in Brindleton Bay, but it's much too small for us, and worse, my husband will come looking. I don't have a job, or any real workable skills, but I am willing to find something. I used to play the guitar when I was younger, and have a little skill in that. I also think myself a decent cook, spending several years running the household. Maybe I can find something along those lines... Still, I expect money will be tight.

    I'm not looking for anything too fancy. Even with the gift of a house, I know the future bills will still need to get paid. I'd like to have something with 3 bedrooms. The girls can share, but i don't want them being hassled every time the baby wakes in the night, and if it's a boy, we'll need the extra room as they grow.

    Two bathrooms would be nice, one for me and one for the kids, but it's not necessary. Eat-in Kitchen would be wonderful, and less space needed than a full dining room. And of course, a living room. Most importantly, is plenty of backyard space. I really want the kids to be able to spend lots of time playing outside, with maybe a swing, or some monkey bars. Definitely no pools though! The thought of one of my babies wandering in there unsupervised really scares me. A washtub and clothes line would be nice too. I could get some laundry done while keeping an eye on the kids play time. And maybe a little shady spot for me to sit and read too.

    Please, it would mean the world if you could help us start over. I promise I won’t let anyone put me in this position again. I have to make things better for my girls than I was willing to accept for myself.

    Sincerely,

    Dayana

    ENTRY DETAILS: Dear Ms Lilard
    We have a new home for you and your kids. It is located in Willow Creek, that should be far enough away from your former husband. We tried to meet all your wishes:
    It's a one story home with three bedrooms. One for the girls, with an art table for your art ambitious daughter and a special toddler bed for the little girl. The toddler playthings are scattered throughout the house, so the little one can find something to do wherever you are. The nursery for the unborn is as colorful as the girls room. between the kids rooms there is the family bathroom. it has two sinks and a big tub'n'shower, the potty for the toddler is in there too.
    The living kitchen area we kept open plan so it will be easier for you to have an eye on your children. There you find a chess table, an easel, a sitting area with TV an electronic piano, a guitar, and a computer desk with computer.
    In the kitchen area we opted for a big table instead of counter seating. Here you can have family dinners together and supervise the homework of your school children.
    From the seating area you step out onto the back porch, where the necessary clothes-washing-tub and clothes-drying-line are. from here you have access to a small alcove where we put in a treadmill for you.
    In the garden there is also a basketball hoop for family fun when your kids grow up. The garden is divided into two separate parts, a playground and a vegetable garden (both enclosed).
    The playground holds the basketball hoop, swings a playhouse and a bench in the shade.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This lot was entirely tailored to the needs of widowed mother, Dayana, and her soon to be 3 children. With room to grow, this bright and inviting home features a large eat-in kitchen, small media space, full downstairs bath, and three separate sleeping quarters, including a calming blue nursery on the main floor. The older children can enjoy the outdoors swing set, while Dayana hangs laundry, does yoga, or cozies up with her favorite book on the back porch. This space meets all the necessary request of this ever growing family; 3 Bed, 1 Bath, a computer, a vegetable garden, a chess table, an easel, one musical instrument, one piece of fitness equipment and a bookcase. Enjoy!
    This tight budget was a complete obstacle for me. I continuously found myself having to dial back the decor and landscaping to stay within budget, all while trying to keep to my usual aesthetic. 450 Simoleons for a rock... bye!! This one was extra fun, being able to have total and complete building freedom. Thanks @BuildnShare for always keeping it challenging!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Dayana's first thought was to find a place in Brindleton Bay so she could be close to her mom, and get some help with the kids. But, in the end, she decided it would be too easy for her ex-husband to find her there, so she asked that her house be built elsewhere. She finally decided on Newcrest, a newer community with good schools. They found a beautiful 30x30 lot in a neighborhood with several young families with kids for her girls to play with. The house is a comfortable 3-bedroom, 2-bath home, with plenty of room for all of them, and has a playroom and a large back yard. It's a good beginning for her new life.

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/gallery/kxwua1P
    ENTRY DETAILS: This home was designed for Dayana, a single mom looking to work from home & be with her young children. Dayana’s dream home features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a washer/dryer/clothesline, guitar, bookshelf, painting easel, punching bag, chess table, several harvestable garden plant areas (2 indoor and one outdoor), and a swing set and bench in the back yard per Dayna’s request.
    Upon consideration of her needs and desire to stay at home with her young children, additional features that will help her in this goal are indoor and outdoor harvestable plants for cooking and income, a studio with a flower-arranging table and live multi-flower plants for her use so she can join the gardener career and work from home making flower arrangements for sale. In the future, when the children are all in school she can even open a florist shop and sell her arrangements, produce, and gourmet dishes there!
    Additional features that Dayana and her children can enjoy are treehouse playhouse (with stair railings since Dayana would worry otherwise!) a fenced back yard and gate on the large front porch for toddler safety; sunroom with a punching bag, chess table, and indoor plants for year-around use; a skylight in the kitchen, a fireplace, grill & picnic table, TV, computer, & more!
    It features the ‘Great Soil’, ‘Home Studio’, and ‘Homey’ lot traits.

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, a home office, a reading nook, and just enough space to fit in a treadmill. The eat-in kitchen is decorated with colors that the Lilard girls like, and it's right next to a gaming table, where the whole family can have fun. The living area includes a play nook and a painting nook. Outside, the Lilards can grow veggies in their vegetable garden and do the laundry on the porch, which faces the monkey bars area. The whole back yard is shaded by two large trees, with one decorated with lanterns, and underneath that is Dayana's special reading place outdoors.

The back yard is fully enclosed and Dayana has a full view of the play area from her bedroom and the kitchen. I included a couple of shots of the family enjoying heir new space, but there are a couple of things that changed in the final edit, so please do not consider these in your judging.

    #BnS118 - Spring Designer Showdown

    The deadline for this challenge is 8th May 2019

    It’s that time again - time to show off your awesome design skills! The celebration of the spring season around the globe is traditionally seen as a time of new beginnings. In that tradition, our attention will turn to the Goth’s home in Willow Creek, Ophelia Villa. Have you noticed it? Well, we sure have, and we’ve never seen a home in such a desperate need of a spring-time spruce up.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I love natural light and I feel with as pale as the Goths are, they could use a little more sun. So I made sure there were a ton of floor to ceiling windows for them to soak up that Vitamin D. I kept the layout mostly the same, but I moved Alexander's bedroom downstairs so that I could make a gorgeous greenhouse on the roof that opens up to a picnic spot for grilling, karaoke, painting, and catching yourself on fire... In the front I added some fountains and landscaped around the front, side, and back. The backyard leads to on open patio, next to which is a gorgeous pink garden! This pink was carried throughout the house decor along with a nice spring green and baby blue. The whole house is now bright and cheery and actually livable. It's especially inviting since I took that awful imposing fence away. The Goths might not want visitors but now they might not have a choice with how welcoming it looks!
    I would also like to take a moment to comment on the bathrooms. The second floor bathroom in particular is an eyesore. The walls are tiled in what can only be described as Pepto Bismol Pink. It's so pink it makes you sick. Kinda like Pepto Bismol. If the walls don't make your sim sick, the talking toilet cracking jokes sure will.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    I wanted to keep the quirky within the family, and simply enhance their styles, while also making them more fresh and spring-ready. To me, spring is more about re-birthing and renewing than actual light colors and spring motifs. Goth is a classy and well respected family, and I wanted to showcase that in their styles. I also wanted to keep the Goths in their usual color scheme, with the darker tones, and Bella's iconic red dress was a huge inspiration for all of the styles.
    Mortimer's got a whole new mustache and a new hair do, as well as some more modern clothes, while keeping his own aesthetic. Bella, the most modern of the family, has also gotten a new hairstyle, but not too far from what she's comfortable with. Her outfits are modern yet sultry and sophisticated, much like before, but better. Cassandra is a total nerd, and I love that about her. I gave her a shorter hair style and some cute round glasses to match, as well as I enhanced her preppy yet nerdy normal style with some fresher clothes. Alexander is a little cutie, and I wanted to dress him like I think his parents would want him to dress. He's gotten some very dapper clothes and some new glasses to match, as well as a cute pompadour hairstyle.
    The first picture shows the family's everyday outfits, while the second shows the highlights of the rest of their outfits.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This was a hard challenge. Deciding how to transform this home. As a goth myself i didn't want to lose the ''goth feel'' of the house to much. I saw the home as romantic and elegant but dark. So i wanted to try and make a romantic and elegant home, but bright. For this i used a lot of white marble, colors (gold,some pastels,some brighter) bridges and a gazebo. Of course as this was a Spring makeover i tried to keep in mind that spring means, warmer weather, means more time spend outside. So i moved the home to the biggest lot size that was allowed to expand the garden🙂. I also chose a spot that was somewhat secluded, spring means everyone will be spending more time outside, so the goths wisely moved away from all those spring-loving, happy neighbours brrrr... This spot is also perfectly surrounded by beautiful trees and it has a romantic oceanview.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Goth's home has got a much more modern look, giving it a new lease of life and much needed update from it's previous look. Keeping in line with the dark colours prefered by the family the house uses a black and white colour scheme, with accents of bright green for a touch of spring. Large windows give the home much more natural light and coupled with plenty of outdoor space give the family a chance to view the surroundings of their new Windenburg home.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Renovation of Ophelia Villa... Relocated to StrangerVille . Moved to the Shadey Acres Section of town..This beautiful 3 story Home now is set on the 40 x 30 lot of Plateau Place. "StrangerVille is known for its plateaus and unique rock formations. There is no better lot like Plateau Place to take all of that in. Providing the best views overlooking StrangerVille, this lot was the perfect place to renovate our dream home. Just ignore the strange lights coming from that crater." Knowing the History of the Goths and their Homes throughout the succession of games. I wanted to keep a bit of the Supernatural aura about them. Because the Goth family has featured in so many different games, there have been a variety of different homes for them. Every Goth home, besides the one in The Sims 4, contains its own graveyard. Each of the PC games, plus all the console editions, have shown ghosts haunting the mansions and scaring the inhabitants. Like the Goth's previous residences this home is haunted too.

    NEW LOT LINK: Ophelia Villa https://www.ea.com/en-gb/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/704D638270D011E984E3300AFEBA9278?category=all&searchtype=item_name&sortby=newest&time=all&searchquery=ophelia villa&max=50&maxis=false

    ENTRY DETAILS: I might have misunderstood the whole challenge, I didn't build having the Goth family in mind at all. I imagined a new family, with a passion for all things Victorian, getting their hands on an old Victorian they tried to renovate to its former glory, yet with the comfort of today's living. As I mention in the slide show this build was meant to be on a different lot but I had trouble with Seasons this time. Willow Creek doesn't seem to have a nice summer in my game this year! But, it's not all ugly where it sits in my opinion.

    ENTRY DETAILS: For me the Goths and bright sound so out of the line that I tried to go for a brighter gothic revival theme. I hope you like it tho it's not the brightest of the transformations. Have fun.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted the Goths to look a bit looser and more relaxed compared to their uptight-looking ensemble from before. I also used brighter colors to go with the home.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Goth family has gotten a brand new look. They are still very classy, but they have more of a modern twist. Cassandra may be going through a bit of a rebellious streak, we are not sure. All in all, they are a pretty good looking family.
