    Here's a good roofing tutorial for anyone who wants some tips. Or you could do what I did - find a house with a roof you like on the gallery, download it, and take it apart. That's how I figured out how to make A-frame work.

    Master Results for #BnS117 - The Hawthorne Project - Part IX

    MidCentury Family Home is a wonderfully compact yet spacious build, perfect for it's new owners. Great choice of exterior finishes, the combination works well together and blends in beautifully with the surroundings. Interesting roof structure and I love the planting feature at the front, this really enhances the home. The open plan concept of the living areas ensure an air of spaciousness and the aubergine colour scheme contrasting with the elegant white is very calming. Dayana's bedroom and en-suite are very soothing in shades of blue, fabulous idea to have fitness equipment in her room to get back into shape after the birth. Excellent idea also to have doors leading out to the garden so she can keep an eye on her children. Kristi's room is colourful and cheery, just right for a toddler and I really like the idea of a glass roof over Alexis room, being a lover of the outdoors means she will feel the outside coming in. The Jack 'n' Jill bathroom is also a great idea for the girls to share. The rear garden is nicely enclosed ensuring privacy and security for the family. There is certainly plenty to do here for both children and adults and I absolutely love the little bbq nook, great use of 'moo' with the sauces!

    Suggestions: Compared to the living and dining areas the kitchen seems a little bland in it's monotone shades. I would suggest a rug or patterned flooring to bring some colour and life into this room. Also as the two bathrooms are connected to each of the bedrooms I was a little concerned about what guests would use. It would have been nice to provide a small WC some place off the living areas for visitors.

    Hawthorne Bungalow is a very attractive little craftsman set in the beautiful land of Windenburg. You have chosen a wonderful spot for this family who will enjoy the open space, greenery and fresh air, all leading to a very healthy lifestyle. Lovely variety of fenestration which provides much interest to the build and the pretty planted borders surrounding the house enhance it greatly. The porch is a lovely place to sit, relax and reflect and the swings will be well used by the family I am sure. Going inside I am met with the tranquillity of the soft neutral décor which is brought to life by the pops of orange. The traditional furnishings are very tasteful and reflect the age and style of the build well, providing a cosy and homely atmosphere. The master bedroom is very soothing in shades of blue and it's good to see the crib set up ready for the new baby. You have made great use of the common area in the basement with the easel for painting and punch bag for fitness. It's also a good idea for the girls to share a room and have the third for when the baby reaches toddler age as this one may be a boy! I love these two colourful and cheery rooms and how you've designed the toddler bed to be floating with the balloons. My favourite feature has got to be the curtained reading nook, absolutely beautiful.

    Suggestions: The dirt path leading from the house disturbs me a little by the way it stops short. I would gradually fade this path out at the end to blend in with the surrounding land, it will look more natural. I was also concerned there was no fire escape from the basement bedrooms, I believe there should always be a second way in/out from these areas. Finally I would have liked to see detailed 'close up' pics of the enclosed garden.

    "Good Riddance" is a wonderful traditional family home situated in the peaceful child and pet friendly land of Brindleton Bay with lots of clean living countryside and fresh air to ensure a healthy and safe environment for the Lilard family. The build has a superb roof structure, the texture blends well with the exterior wall coverings and your choice of fenestration adds detail and interest to the home. The lovely path design and colourful planting are very welcoming features, as are the plants placed on the front porch. The fenced backyard is private and secure and it's good to see a side gate leading to this area. The trees provide plenty of shade for the family to participate in the various activities here, there is certainly enough for all ages and you have used terrain paint well to establish a much used outdoor space. Going indoors one feels instantly at home with the cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Family speaks in every corner with kids stuff left around and their artwork displayed on walls. There is even lovely little mementos of the children in Dayana's room and it's good to see you've made use of debug items. The kitchen is well laid out and I love the design of the wall behind the cooker, very original. Beautiful girls' room in tasteful shades of pink and aqua and a great idea to use neutral shades for the nursery, fantastic work with the moo'd changing table.

    Suggestions: The picket fencing surrounding the backyard doesn't flow greatly well with the porch fencing in my opinion. I would have used either a high hedge or tall fence panels in a darker shade. Both of these would provide plenty of privacy and I think would blend more with the home.

    423 Lilard Lane is a superb modern geometrical design with fantastic contrasting exterior shades and textures which highlight the different shapes beautifully. The horizontal balcony fencing and vertical wall sculpture complement each other well and enhance the build greatly. The tall trees provide symmetry to the façade and your choice of windows is perfect for this style of build. It's good to see you have provided a side gate to access the backyard which is surrounded by a lovely wall ensuring privacy and security to this area. The modern interiors reflect the architecture well and the open plan living areas ensure a flowing space. I love the contemporary wall textures in subtle striped shades which are brought to life with the pops of orange furnishings. The study nook is perfectly sited for all the family to use. Excellent idea to make the most of debug items. Fantastic kitchen, looks very chic and stylish with elegant white counters and the utensils are very tidy and neatly in place. Very calming and tranquil nursery in soothing shades of blue and I love the animal theme going on here. Good to see you've used moo in the beautiful aqua girls room to put the stereo above the desk and to have two sinks and plenty of towels in the bathroom, they will certainly be needed! My favourite room is the master, it's modern elegance is stunning yet cosy and comfortable at the same time.

    Suggestions: There seems to be a little too much greenery bunched together at the front of the house in my opinion. I would have replaced the middle hedge perhaps with a glass fence to break this up. The upper balcony is a great space for the activities you have placed there but they do appear to have been 'plopped' down. To make this area flow I would have enhanced these activities with objects, ie paint pots etc around the easel, planting equipment etc around the garden planter and fitness clutter around the punchbag.

    Expert Results for BnS 117 - The Hawthorne Project - Phase IX

    Lemonade Summers has great curb appeal. Your color choices reflect spring and a new beginning for Dayana and her family. Great job with the roofing. The floor plan flows well and I like the room placement. Your object choices and placement is well thought out. Creative solution for the clothesline and wash tub. The interior certainly reflects that a young family lives here. Wonderful job!

    Suggestions: There are a few suggestions that I feel could elevate this build. Your terrain paint is very stark. Using the eraser tool and putting the softness all the way to the right and going over the edges will make the edges more subtle and more realistic. I would have liked to have seen the same wood floors in the girls’ room, as was used in the rest of the house. Overall a very nice family home.



    @AlJay

    Happily Ever After is a very nice contemporary family home. The back yard is large and spacious and the fence will help to keep the kids safe. Your interiors are light and bright. The split floor plan is awesome and will give Dayana a retreat at the end of the day. Great use of MOO on the sectional and entertainment unit. The family portraits are a very nice personal touch. The rooms are spacious and easy to navigate. Nice choice of clutter, it certainly gives it a lived in feeling. Great job!

    Suggestions: Overall a very well thought out build. The front center of the home seems a bit bare and could have used a 3rd flower bed. Be careful with your roofing, try to avoid creating valleys that could cause water pooling.



    @Mannanna
    RX9pJQA.png

    Auburn has great curb appeal. Your use of terrain paint and the subtle use of the terrain tool is very well done. Nice execution of the garage door. Your rooms are generous and your colors are very well coordinated. There is just enough clutter to make it look lived in. You made some wise object choices. Overall a well executed build!

    Suggestions: I have to admit that I was disappointed when I got to the interior of your build. All of that attention to create that wonderful garage door and the slope leading to it and then….. no garage. There was plenty of space, the “bonus room” is mostly unused space and you didn’t need the piano, Dayana revealed in her letter that she plays guitar.

    Thank you @BuildnShare . I guess I should have listened to my husband, who builds things in real life, about the valleys in my roof...but it just looked so much prettier this way ;)

    Thanks for taking the time to give feedback @BuildnShare ... sorry I disappointed you with no garage, to me that's a waste of space in Sims4.
