    November Challenge

    Design a home using this floor plan. It can be on any size lot and any style you choose. There is no budget. Please do not use any custom content and hashtag with #BB1 when you upload it to the gallery. If you wish to make a household for your new build, please feel free to do that as well!

    If you need a starting point, I have uploaded a shell to the gallery for you to use. BlueprintBuilds-Nov Shell This is just a guide and can be put on any size lot with any wall and foundation height.

    Have fun! I look forward to seeing all the creativity :)

    Yay this is awesome!! I have been looking for something like this for a while! I do have a question, though. Is the art like @rosemow posts to the gallery considered CC?

    Thanks for creating the challenge! I'm going to get started on it :smiley:

    Is is not. Some that you will find in the gallery is. I find it best, when dealing with an unknown creator (to me) to place the wall, and check before I start putting their art in my home. I hate having to go back through and play 'find the CC' on decor that was listed as No CC.

    @Taoron Thanks! I was worried about that after I watched a video on how to do it and it turned out to be an external program. @rosemow would you be able to verify since you're the primary source of my art?
  • AlJayAlJay Posts: 356 Member
    Thanks @Taoron great suggestion!
    @Serenityhyperion rosemow's artwork has no custom content :)

    This house has a screened porch...how amazing would it be if we had them? I think this is going to be a lot of fun. Thanks for hosting @AlJay !


  • SerenityhyperionSerenityhyperion Posts: 54 Member
    @Archer_Girl - Wouldn't it be?! I mean we have that screen door from Island Living and something similar with the wooden slats from IL but still. I would love that feature!
  • Archer_GirlArcher_Girl Posts: 165 Member

    Question: Do you guys see what might be a pocket door between laundry room and WIC? I have very poor vision so I just wanted to make sure before I added a doorway that isn't supposed to be.


  • AlJayAlJay Posts: 356 Member
    Yep, I'd say there is a pocket door there.
  • SerenityhyperionSerenityhyperion Posts: 54 Member
    I wish we actually had pocket doors in the game. I ended up enclosing the back porch and putting the slats from Island Living up and then just putting a roof over the front porch.

    Thanks @AlJay for providing the base template for us! That makes it much easier to deal with. I'm not used to big houses, to be honest, so I'm already going to struggle haha.

    This is a great idea, thanks @AlJay ....love that I have all month too :)

    Just checking, I'm guessing WIC is walk in closet? Can't think what else it would stand for but not sure!

    This looks like fun. Like others, a lot bigger than I usually work.

    So far I've managed to complete the layout, lounge, kitchen, dining room and Owners suite. Currently wrestling with the bathroom to get the layout right. That's the problem with walk-in showers!

    You can download the layout from the Gallery. ;)
  • AyeffenAyeffen Posts: 123 Member
    Yeah I spotted that but I'm trying in my own way to match the blueprint as best possible!

    I decided to combine the windows in sections where there are 2-3 together. That way I can use some fancier windows. I usually spend too much time trying to setup the walls so it's nice having the layout! I don't blame you for wanting to do it from scratch, though, @Ayeffen - I can't wait to see what you do!
  • AlJayAlJay Posts: 356 Member
    Thanks @Serenityhyperion I'm glad the template helps. I look forward to seeing your design!

    Thanks @AliSim19 I figured having a month takes the pressure off. You can enjoy it more that way :)

    I'm glad you are having fun with it @Ayeffen I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

    Hi everyone

    Mine is done and uploaded. I tried my best with the layout.

    Challenge Number: #1
    Origin ID: Ayeffen90
    Gallery Name of Build: BB - October 2019

    Additional Notes: I had in mind, a successful couple, both in the world of antiques or art collecting so they have a number of pieces in their home. They also have a teenage son and a slightly younger daughter.

    I grabbed the Sims randomly from the gallery that roughly fit the bill. :lol:

    There are a couple of cases in which I omitted the cupboards/storage with doors because it didn't work in the space but there is something in its place i.e. linen storage or cabinets. I also went for sliding doors to give the impression at least, of pocket doors.

    The garden is lush and creates a romantic walk through to a fountain and paved area, along with kitchen garden and raised screened terrace overlooking the river which runs down the left-hand side of the lot.

    Additional Notes: Built to look as a typical Brick ranch, found anywhere along the East Coast of the U.S. I dodn't have to change much of the original layout (as it was done so well...thank you, for that)

    Thanks @Taoron - I thought I did okay but then I looked at your instagram and my eyes just near enough popped out of my head. :lol:
