    I would like to reserve Sandy Run in Newcrest, Barring that, any 40x20/30 lot of your choosing will work just fine. I will be including a family, as well.

    For my part, when I think whimsey, I think obscure...something completely out of the ordinary. In that particular neighborhood, I was toying with ideas from Fairy Tales or Grimm.

    A giant shoe looking house for the old woman and all of her children.
    Jack and the Beanstalk with a small cottage below and supersize a plant of some sort and build a Castle on the top of it.
    Jack Sprat and his wife in a house that resembles some sort of food products representing fat and lean.
    The Witch's House in Hansel and Gretel. (Kind of done already as a Bakery but could be expanded upon or done in a different way)
    A crooked house with a crooked path for the crooked man.
    The Billy Goats Gruff lived under a bridge.
    Rapunzel's Tower
    Row Houses for the three little pigs.

    I'm not doing any of those. I'm currently running with a house for Chicken Little.

    Maybe play up the garden, going as far as to bury the entrance or even one whole side of the home in flowers? Or add an unsual water feature/fountain? How about some brightly colored lights for a whimsical evening look? You could also go wild on the inside - leaving the outside as is - by bringing that garden indoors?

    Just some random thoughts. Happy building!

    @Taoron great minds think alike - I’m currently trying to plot out a rough shape for the giant shoe so I can work out what size plot I’d need 😂 Didn’t think of Jack Sprat or the billy goat the bridge though, clever!!

    I’ll be thinking about your suggestions too @Rostri-Jodu....though I think I may have overdone coloured lighting for a while after my HalloweenTown builds so flowers might be the answer 😉

    Slipshod Mesquite in Oasis Springs is always a little bit of a letdown. I think I will move some comedians in and turn it into Slapstick Mesquite.

    Can I take Avarice Acres 40x30 or Asphalt Abodes 30x20 in Newcrest please.....can’t decide on the size but I like the light there! If someone wants to claim one of them I’ll happily go with the other, decision made for me 😊

    I appear to be coming to the party late as usual. Is there an updated list of available lots? I'd love to play along!

    Okay -- I will take Potter's Splay in Willow Creek if still available and I will be making a family.

    I'd love Pier Palace in Windenburg! I think I also will be making a family.

    I'd like to reserve Brook Bungalow in Willow Creek (40x30). And I'll give the family a try also.

    Is it okay to use a house that I've already made?

    In progress, "Sitcom Mesquite." I'm not sure if this is what was meant by whimsy, but it makes me laugh.

    I still want to play with the windows to see how close I can get to a smooth dark surface, and I hope to find something that will look like the old fashioned "bunny ears" antenna.

    I would like to take Rippling Flats in Newcrest and yes I will make a family as well. I didn't notice a budget, is there one?
  • AllearsAllears Posts: 519 Member
    @MaryKup Since everyone is building different sized houses on different sized lots, there's no budget on this one. Enjoy the freedom to design as you like! :)

    I'm goingto challnge myself and take on Von-Windenburg Estate. I usually avoid the 64x64 lots. Not sure if I'm going to want to do a family too.

    @JojoMOMSTER Thanks! I think i need to make the family before I furnish the house.
  • psyktpsykt Posts: 1,168 Member
    I'll take "Rustic Residence" in Windenburg, if it's still available, and I might create a family as well.

    CHALLENGE #130 - Whimsyville Residential
    FORUM ID:Taoron
    ORIGIN ID: Taoron24121
    LEVEL:
    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Sandy Run, Newcrest
    NEW LOT LINK: Coop 'N Run: https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/FAB23D5DFA9711E988F7267D47C7ADE4

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: (REQUIRED - https://imgur.com/a/iU5B8vv

    ENTRY DETAILS: Coop 'N Run: What I was looking to do was to create a home for the family of Chicken Little. (They will be uploaded as 'The Clucks' ) I created the 'Coop', which is Barn Styled, closed, personal dwelling area, of the Bedrooms, Baths and upstairs, the Theater. The rest of the home, with all of the glass, is the 'Run', containing communal areas, such as the Entertaining/Sitting Room, Kitchen, Dining and the Gym, Game Room and Den below, creating a Coop and Run. Hence the name.

    There is a front patio for entertaining or lounging, as well, with a Grill and plenty of seating, and along the side of the home, more seating with a fire pit.

    Thehome takes up the entire parcel, so there isn't any real landscaping to be done, and even if there was, they're chickens, and they have scratched it all up by now anyway. :P
