    ENTRY DETAILS: Nestled in the foothills of the mountains in Granite Falls National Park, this is a four-storey secluded vacation home that will be the perfect retreat for Chantal and Charles Vanderclump. Filled with lots of art housed in gallery halls, there is masses of space for both formal and informal entertaining, a sauna, indoor-outdoor pool, party deck with hot tubs, a viewing loft and much more. There is a master suite, two guest rooms and small apartment for the live in help. Oh and there is a total of 8 balconies if you count the entrance, plus the deck, so views at every turn!
    I wanted to try a large scale build which I haven’t done much of and had real fun with the exterior (roofs are tricky!!), but boy did it take some decorating! As I only got back from hols on Saturday so was short on time I once again enlisted the help of my 11 year old sims addict who decorated all bedrooms and the small apartment.

    I was away for two weeks camping with the kids until Saturday so I only caught this challenge when I came back - something of a rush build haha! And in my wisdom I thought I'd try a large build in Granite Falls.....mistake 1 & 2 as I've not really done either before :D
    I played with the outside until I was happy with it and then had to work out the interior, prob not the best method in hindsight. However I also got the room layout how I wanted so not so bad, then I realised how much decorating I had and how little time I had....enter DD as assistant decorator. That caused it's own issued as she insisted she couldn't decorate medium walls and made me change them to low...which meant changing all the windows and moving the decor I'd already done :'( Think I caught all the clipping but prob missed some!

    I'd have loved to have time to get more detail in but as with all of these challenges I've learned so much while having fun that I don't mind :)

    My two main challenges with this were
    A. Turns out that certain items disappear from a rental home build when someone goes on vacation there (aqua jets aka my snow mobiles I kind of get, but coffee machines???), plus you can't easily dip in and out of build mode to change lighting for photos. I got that mad with it that I saved the house and replaced it on the 64x64 in Windenburg just to make it easier on myself for the interior shots. So the build is 50x50 even though its 64x64 on the gallery upload. Lesson learned no more builds in Granite Falls for me!!

    B. the roof - the section that into into the two angled wings insisted on coming through into the room (the loft) no matter what I did....I ended up building a wall across it and using the edge as a feature. None of the others seemed to do it, very confusing. Please can anybody help and tell me what I did wrong/how I avoid it?

    Time to go back and look at all the posts I've missed now, happy building all

    Wow, what fabulous builds <3 <3 <3

    @AlJay your detail is amazing, and awesomely cohesive. Even the laundry room screams luxury and I think I might spend some time practising how you did that bar too!
    @Pinkusfamily I’d love do do some intimate entertaining in your chalet, it would be my ideal indulgent get away. And an ice rink too, great idea, love it :)
    @OccipitalLobe So grand, totally gave me the feel of an old English country manor while fitting perfectly on your snowy mountain. Think I’d be in that reading study forever....

    Great builds everyone <3 Which lot did you use @AliSim19 :)

    It’s the national park in Granite Falls, the lot is actually just called Granite Falls Forest. Beautiful lot but I won’t be building there again haha

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/ZaI625Z (O apologize for the mess it is in, but I don't have the strength to mess with again.)
    ENTRY DETAILS: I created the entire Vanderclump family. This includes Chantal, the rich voice actor, who is a Mansion Baron with business savvy, materialistic, a snob, and very self-assured and her husband Charles, who is fabulously wealthy with business savvy, a kleptomaniac ambitious, and neat and is rumored to be the head of a "family" of business associates (wink, wink). Hazel Rayann Sullivan is the family's long time housekeeper, and Mr. Vanderclump's bit of fluff, as he likes to call her. The two have a twelve year old daughter together named Brianna Charly Sullivan. Hazel is a master chef with essence of flavor, cheerful, neat, and jealous of Mr. Vanderclump's time away from her. Their daughter is erratic and an artistic prodigy. The married couple have two children: Bradford Dean Vanderclump and Roxy Marilyn Vanderclump. Brad is a chief of Mischief and dastardly, a snob, a kleptomaniac, and paranoid! He married an exotic young lady named Mai Lulee Chou Vanderclump, and she is a party animal and gregarious, hot headed, a dance machine, and a total slob. Basically , she was the gold digger who won him over with her good looks and fun ways. The couple has a toddler son that Mai Lulee does not want or care for. The baby's name is Rafe X Chou Vanderclump, and he is very fussy and demands his own way. Roxy, on the other hand, may just be the only sensible member of the family. She is an archaeology scholar and quick learner who is a bit of a goofball, a geek, and rather outgoing. She is still living at home since she is just out of college, but that may change soon! With this family, the drama never ends! From Mai Lulee's inappropriate attire to her bad mothering "skills," and the family trait of "borrowing," normal is just out of the question. On top of that, Charles is fairly open with his relationship with Hazel, at least in front of his wife Chantal. Somehow the older children and Brianna have no idea they are siblings. Brad and Mai Lulee often express their "love" out in the open, to the chagrin of everyone. Download the family and see just how messy their world really is!!

    (Since I am currently sick, including some photos of the unfinished house in the slide show--I won't be up to finishing it this time around :( )

    Heeeeeeyyy,
    I have a question,,
    You can't upload your build to the gallery when you use CC, right?
    But some people use CC paintings/posters, and are still able to upload their build to the gallery.
    So what's the difference ?:P
    Wanna upload to the gallery and would love to download some new paintings to use :p

    ( I Saw @Pinkusfamily & @AlJay had it + gallery upload =D )
  • PinkusfamilyPinkusfamily Posts: 344 Member
    @Devilariah ,

    There are Paintings in the Gallery that are Not CC.. AlJay2000 in the gallery is a good example ( she is our Creative @AlJay ) . She has paintings that were made from reference..They were made of things that are Not in the game.. But somehow were painted... There are several , even more
    Catalogs made by others in the gallery that have made paintings in this way.. I think they are made some how with a Mod... But are not considered CC...

    I hope I explained that right...

    Look up Paintings in the gallery see what you come up with...

  • AllearsAllears Posts: 421 Member
    @Devilariah These are paintings that are made by Sims when painting "by reference". They're uploaded to the gallery in rooms, and you can d/l the room and use the paintings. There's also photos made like this. The best way to find them is to go to the gallery, select "room" then use hashtag "painting". You'll find all kinds of them! I agree with @Pinkusfamily about @Aljay's work, beautiful. And don't forget to check out paintings and photos from our own @rosemow, in fact she has a showcase right here on the forum, full of beautiful art (her EAID is roseymow).
