    #BnS137 - Star Struck

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 May 2020

    "Thank you for the autograph. Ah, right this way, ma’am, you’re expected.”

    “It was my pleasure.”

    The voices drifting through your partially open door alert you that your next client is here and you look up from the monitor in time to see a stylishly dressed young woman stepping inside, casually placing her hand against Karl’s chest as she passes him.

    You recognize her as the well-known celebrity Diana Grace, and can’t blame Karl for his startruck reaction. It’s taking an effort to keep your own jaw from dropping to find yourself in the presence of such a famous person. Determinedly, you remember your job and greet her.

    “Hello and welcome, Ms. Grace. We’re honored that you’ve chosen us to build your perfect home.”

    She smiles pleasantly at you. “You come highly recommended. I’m sure you’ll be able to meet my needs.”

    “We’ll definitely do our best.” You catch sight of Karl still standing in the doorway,watching with obvious awe. “Karl, don’t you have something to do? I think I hear the phone.”

    “What? Oh, right, I’ll just ah, go answer that…” Karl nearly trips over his own feet on his way out but manages to recover himself.

    “Now where were we...Oh yes, what did you have in mind? Something sleek and contemporary, perhaps?”

    Diana seems amused but not bothered at all by Karl’s reaction. “Oh, no, I’m looking for cozy, comfortable and perhaps a touch rustic. I want it to be my own little kingdom out in the country. I have many friends who like to visit, and will need at least a couple of rooms for them to stay overnight. A guest bath or two as well.”

    You nod, noting it all down. “Anything else?”

    “I need a pool, of course, Space for entertaining both inside and out is a must.”

    “Do you have a color preference?”

    “I enjoy bright, cheerful colors, but not painfully bright, and soft fabrics. Neutrals are fine as accent colors.” She smiles again, dazzling you so you have to blink and bring your mind back to the task at hand.

    “And your budget?”

    “Will 80,000 be enough?”

    “That should be plenty. Let me see you out.” You rise to escort her to the door, pretending not to notice Karl quickly turning back to his desk and tapping furiously away at his computer.


    THE BRIEF

    Requires at least three bedrooms and 2 baths.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This is a traditional coastal-style home with lots of windows to appreciate the view of the water on three sides of the home. This lot provides privacy as it is on Windenburg Island where there are only three other homes. Most of the interior is painted, paneled or tiled in muted tones of off white or gray with white trim so as not to compete with the colorful decor choices. It was a challenge finding just the right balance between "rustic" and "bright colors" and so I tried to avoid any furnishings that were too geometric, sleek or modern but it was hard as the most interesting color choices tend to be in those categories. I went with more of a "shabby-chic" or "boho-chic" look, using a number of colorful pieces from the Movie Hangout stuff pack and going from there. That was tricky also though because when you're using patterns and big bright colors things can get very "busy" and everything is competing with everything for attention. I felt that since this is a home on the water that it would be fun to decorate a space with a nautical-theme. The indoor/outdoor lounge just seemed like the obvious place for that fun look. I hope that Diana will enjoy her time in this home.

    So a home for a celebrity but only 80k budget, colourful but not too colourful and just a little bit rustic….quite a challenge!! Now what can I add to stretch myself? Well I’ve never done a ranch style build (that seemed a 'bit' rustic right?) and building on my starter addiction, just how much space and luxury can I give this starlet for only 80k and make it cosy(ish!)? Had real fun with this one, playing with tutorial ideas, terrain, TOOL and MOO, and had to use every starter trick I’ve learned to keep in budget! A few things I tried didn’t survive playtesting but most worked out ok – a great challenge, thank you @buildnshare
    So, welcome to the Grace Ranch, the new secluded home on the hill for well known celebrity Diana Grace, designed to fit right in with the pre-landscaped gated entrance that the plot came with. The home boats a large open plan living area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, wellness room and a beautiful outdoor entertaining area.

    #BnS138 - A Gem of a Vacation Home

    The deadline for this challenge is 30 June 2020

    You know the instant the elegantly dressed, obviously well-to-do couple walk - no, the man is definitely swaggering - into your office that they are going to be difficult to please. Still, you’re up for the challenge. You just hope you’ll be able to hear them over the yapping of the little dog in the woman’s purse. You consider asking them to please leave the dog with Karl but he already has his hands full with the two children left outside with him.

    “Mr. and Mrs. Gold, it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance. Please, sit down. Can I get you anything?”

    “No, we’re fine. I’ve got other meetings today, no time for chitchat,” Garnet Gold says, rather abruptly, you think.

    ‘And I have a lunch date, so make this fast,” his wife, Diamond, adds in clipped tones.

    “Of course. What is it you’re looking for? A mansion, perhaps? Some new property just became available.”

    “No, we’re happy with the one we have. What we want is a vacation home on the water,” Garnet explained. “We want to relax away from the crowds.”

    “But we need decks and space for entertaining. There must be music and a lavish garden,” Diamond adds.

    “I require a gym, and an enclosed swimming pool so it can be used in all weather,” Garnet continues before you can say a word.

    You make encouraging noises while typing furiously, not wanting to forget a single detail. With such exacting clients who may change their minds many times before the house is built, it’s best to hear them out and try to anticipate their needs. Fortunately, the dog quiets down so you can hear. You hope it sleeps through the rest of the meeting.

    “We also need a large dining room for guests, and a media room and playroom for our children, Jett and Jade.”

    “That’s definitely doable. Anything else?” You ask when they seem to have run out of words.

    “Glass. I want lots of glass and big windows so I can enjoy the view,” Diamond announces.

    Garnet nods. “All contemporary, of course. I prefer dark colors.”

    “And what do the children like?”

    “Jett would have his room decorated entirely in black if we let him,” Diamond says with a disapproving sniff. “He enjoys collecting such things as frogs and fish.”

    “He does like navy, red and gray, too. Jade enjoys fashion, much like her mother, though her favorite color is green, to Diamond’s despair, “ Garnet says.

    “A proper lady wears pink and does not spend her days playing video games,” Diamond says stiffly.

    “I think we have everything. What is your budget?” You interject quickly, not wanting a marital spat to break out in your office. You are beginning to suspect this is not so much about a vacation home but an attempt to bring a family together.

    “We own the lot, the budget is 250,000.”’

    “One last question. Do you need rooms for live-in help?”

    “No, this is for our family only,” Garnet replies as Diamond opens her mouth.
    "All right, we should have your new vacation home ready in one month."


    THE BRIEF


    Budget: 250,000, excluding lot cost.
    Requirements:

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Gold family had a beautiful piece of ocean front property in Sulani where we built a 3 story vacation home for them. This home has multiple decks with outdoor speakers scattered throughout so the family can enjoy music where ever they might be. I have given them an indoor/outdoor infinity pool with glass panel doors that can be closed off during poor weather so the family can still enjoy a nice swim. Because Garnet prefers dark colors I chose to add a lot of black to the build giving it a dark feel, but not too dark. There are many windows so the family can enjoy the beautiful ocean or garden views.

    #BnS139 - Remote Education

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 July 2020

    You stroll through the park, sipping a cooling cup of lemonade. Although the wind has a bite to it, the breeze does not blow enough to cool the hot sun beating down on everything. The dogs pant in whatever shade they can find. Even the kids are not playing as energetically as usual. You finally sit down at the picnic table by the monkey bars and greet your new client.

    "Hello, Mr. Quakenshaker?" you ask with a huge smile.

    The man opposite you laughs out loud. "Yes, I sure am. But, please, call me Jim."

    "Okay, Jim," you say congenially. "How can I help you?"

    "Well, I dare say you have heard of my employer, Fairbanks and Folders Publishing?"

    You nod as he draws breath to continue.

    He nods at you as he starts his story.

    "Perhaps you might also have heard that every five years we do a large community project of some sort, mainly to help the underprivileged. Our projects ultimately help everyone in the community. In the past, we have opened mobile libraries, created free educational software, and even built learning playgrounds. This year, we have decided to be even more ambitious. We have decided to mimic a missionary approach to reach those who need the most help, often in the most remote areas of the world."

    "That certainly does sound like an ambitious plan. Is it a religious project?" you ask, extremely interested to hear more.

    Jim laughs heartily. "No. Our project is still based in education, not religion. We are going to send about 25 teachers into these remote areas to teach those who may never have even seen a book before."

    He pauses, hands clasped on the picnic table as he watches the youngsters at play.

    "What we would like from you is a sort of portable classroom environment with very few walls, so that set up can be as fast as possible. It can be long or square--whatever shape you think is best."

    Again Jim pauses while you take notes about the project.

    "We, of course, would like a model unit before we order all 25 units. It is a bit difficult, you see, what we are asking for. First, it must be portable enough to build and tear down easily and quickly for travel, but not wheels. We will be moving them by trucks, boats, and the like."

    Jim consults his notes. "Second, it has to, in a way, function as a sort of village centre. It should have two bathrooms for the villagers to use. Since some of these areas don't have sanitary bathing facilities, we need a shower in each bathroom. A small laundry area, a small kitchen area, and an area for four computers are needed. It will also need a library/book area for study and research. A large majority of the space should be a flexible space dedicated to learning. And this space may be a little tricky. You see, we will be teaching multiple life skills as well as math, writing and all the normal skills. We will also be teaching all ages. So, we will need tables for cooking classes that can be somehow put up if we are doing story time for the children, for example, where the children would be sitting on the floor."

    "That all seems easy enough to do," you say, looking back at your notes. "It looks like you probably need plenty of storage for supplies and tools as well as educational materials."

    "Yes, we do require a lot of storage. Maybe shelves or cabinets. I will leave that for you to decide. So, these are the kind of spaces we need on the first floor. Oh, before I forget, these units will be going from very cold to very hot areas, so they will need air conditioning as well as a source of heat. Learning is always easier when people are comfortable."

    You scribble down even more notes.

    "And now, for the third part, we also need another area for our teacher to live, semi-separate from the school room. Maybe a loft or separate suite of rooms. The teacher will need a large closet, someplace to sleep, and a complete bathroom. And a desk to use their own personal computer, which they will provide themselves. Oh, and their own personal refrigerator. For cooking, the one kitchen area should be enough."

    "Would you like any particular style or colors for these units?" you asking, again scanning through your notes.

    "I would say a modern style," Jim replies. "And the colors...a dull, neutral color on the outside--gray, brown, that sort of thing. Clean lines and understated colors on the inside. We want people to focus on learning, not the walls."

    "Oh, I agree with you," you respond cheerfully. "What kind of budget did you have in mind?"

    "We are prepared to spend up to $150,000 per unit. Will that do?" Jim asks, peering down at his hands.

    "That is a very generous budget," you say. "I can have the model done by the end of the month. Will that work for you?"

    Jim's eyes came up to meet yours. "That is even faster than we anticipated! And that timeline will be appreciated greatly. We are all eager to get started as early as possible. Jim gets up and shakes your hand. "I am very pleased that you were recommended to me. I feel we are in good hands with you!"

    You blush as you shake his hand.


    THE BRIEF

    *The model's budget is $150,000.
    *There should be a huge, flexible space for a class room with a small kitchen, space for tables, plenty of storage, a small area for books and research, and an area with 4 computers.

    *A separate space for the teacher with a large closet, sleeping area, desk, refrigerator, and a complete/full bathroom.
    *There can be more than one level if you want the teacher's area to be upstairs. Use as few walls as possible.
    *Landscape the outside as it might be found in any region(in other words, pick a region where you want the unit to be placed and landscape accordingly).
    *A small laundry room and AC and heating for the unit.

    Sim Challenge

    *Create a teacher and some students and show them using the unit. Please include their clothing options and likes, traits, etc.

    Room Challenge

    ENTRY DETAILS: I took my inspiration from the remote education building I was in when I worked in remote alaska teaching native youth. When I worked up there, we had one main space to teach K-12, and was used as a community gathering space as well. Each area in the main space is designed to able to have 2-3 classes at once. The coloring fits the Salvadoradian area. This is mainly powered by solar (not pictured as i haven't gotten that pack, and can't due to financial constraints). Large flex space with a kitchen area. The large prep tables can be folded and hung on the walls when not in use. poof chairs are available for story time, and the young kids learning. This space is also designed to encourage natural/familial learning occurs (where the older kids help teach the younger). The teacher area up in the loft. This space is designed for a couple to live in. Although small (although spacious to compared to the 150sqft apartment i lived in while teaching remotely) The main living area in the teacher's home is one large space, with movable room dividers to allow the teachers to rearrange the space to fit their needs. The stairs to the teacher's loft are retractable to close off that area when not in use, and to give the teachers a feeling of more privacy.

It features a small home for the teacher and a large space for cooking classes and any other classes as well as a library, bathrooms, computer space and laundry space for the community. Outdoor painting classes, gardening and recycling and maker trades are also available. I took the "Use as few of walls as possible seriously. I tried to make a wide open area with movable room dividers so the space could be opened wide up for various community activities.

    This is my first time trying to officially enter one of these challenges! I've been building along with them for years, but usually don't do them in time and have never gone through the whole process. I really hope that I got all of the elements here correctly. I put the space in the links so I'm hoping you'll be able to update them. I'm excited!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    In the remote jungles of Selvadorada there are few opportunities for children to receive a solid education. With that in mind, a large community project was undertaken to build a series of community center schools. The school also serves as a center where adults are also welcome to shower and eat a meal in the small kitchen.
    The school itself is an open plan floor design to allow maximum access to the space. Desks and tables can easily be folded up and pushed to the side. Although it may not be the biggest school or community space it is jam packed with opportunities for learning, including a computer lab, research library, learning through play areas, and several different activity desks.
    There is also a small room on the second floor for a teacher to live. The room contains a kitchenette as well as a small desk and computer. The suite also has a full bathroom to ensure maximum comfort and relaxation after a day of teaching students and welcoming community members.

    #BnS140 - A Fresh Start

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 August 2020

    You look up curiously from the doodle you were working on, a possible plan you hope to have the chance to build for a client someday, in time to greet the man who has just entered. His clothing is colorful, but not loud, and he carries a small brown and white dog in his arms.

    “Hello, Mr. Downey, please come in and sit down.”

    “Hello. I hope you don’t mind that I brought Nefertari with me, she gets anxious when I leave her.” He steps into the room and sits, letting the puppy curl up on his lap, one hand automatically stroking her back.

    “Not at all. What are you looking for?”

    “A fresh start,” he answers honestly. “I moved here to get away from my old life and start over where no one knows me. I have some money saved up from my old job as a vet, and thought the best way to get a place suited for both myself and Nefertari would be to have one built.”

    You nod. “I would like to help. What did you have in mind?”

    “I don’t ask much, the basics of course, at least one bedroom with space to expand if I ever have the family I long for, a library and a small kitchen.

    “Okay, and do you have any color preferences?” You ask next, though you already have an idea what he will say given his style of dress and the trace of an island accent in his speech.

    Stephan Downey looks away for a moment, out the window, before he replies. “I would like bright colors, natural wood and big windows. Near water if possible.”

    “I understand. I think we can manage that. What’s your budget?”

    “I’ve set aside $125,000 for the house and land, will that be enough?”

    “Yes, that should be plenty.”

    Note; While this challenge was rewritten with Island Living in mind, it is not required.


    THE BRIEF

    Budget: 125,000
    Requirements:
    At least two bedrooms
    A library
    A nice kitchen.
    Big windows with a view of water.

    Sim Challenge

    None this time. Stephan Downey and Nefertari are available on the gallery if you would like to download them. There are two versions, one with a dog and one without. Check under the Origin ID SimTresa.

    Room challenge

    Build Stephan’s library. Budget: 10,000

    Remember to include the the hashtag #BNS140 with all entries or they will not be judged

    ENTRY DETAILS: I tried to make the decor seem hodge, podge stuff you would find at a second hand store but still somewhat nice. It seemed to me that a teacher this old would have acquired a lot of odds and ends (junk) so I included a junk shed for all his worldly items. The Library study has the appearance of a sunroom, providing plenty of light to see all the nerdy stuff decorating the custom shelves. I would normally enter at a level below but since I did the fancy loft with roof windows I decided to step up a level for this one. I left the loft looking as an extra bedroom where some more “educational” things have also been stored plus an art easel to take advantage of the attic view.

    ENTRY DETAILS: My Cozy Panglao is a modern tropical home with clean exteriors and natural wood finishes. I chose to place this home a bit further away from the beachfront so that the view from the windows will have ample foreground. The ceiling is higher than most normal homes to give a sense of spaciousness. The bright colors in the interior complement the wood without being too obnoxious. This home is meant to give a relaxing atmosphere, and the big windows from the master's bedroom, library, kitchen, and even the ensuite anteroom provide a good view of the open sea. This house is also meant to be a part of the My Cozy series, which is a collection of modern tropical homes taking inspiration from Filipino and Japanese aesthetics. (Trivia: Panglao Island is a popular resort island in the Philippines.)

    #BnS141 - A Small Family in Need

    The deadline for this challenge is 30 September 2020

    As you wander around the Mid-Summer Festival, enjoying the warm sun on your arms and face, you cannot help but overhear a conversation going on between a very young boy and his harassed-looking mother.

    "But where will we sleep, mama?" the young boy asks.

    "I will try your Aunt Penny again in a little while. Maybe she can help us out a little bit," the woman answers, searching her purse for change. She pulls out a few coins and puts them on the bench between them. Then she starts digging in her purse again for more change.

    "Mama," says the boy. "Mama, I am hungry." His little voice is low and quiet and a little shaky.

    "I know, baby," she answers, just as quietly. "I am, too. But I don't get paid for a few days yet." She pulls out what looks like a penny and adds it to the small pile of change on the bench.

    Hoping they like hot dogs and ice cream, you quickly head over to the concession stand and buy enough food for a small crowd. The man behind the counter helps you carry the food and drinks back to the bench.

    "Hello," you say, introducing yourself as the man puts the food down and retreats back to his food stand.

    "I am wondering if you can help me. We are doing a survey of how tasty our food choices are this year. Will you please try some of this food and give me your opinions?"

    "Sure," says the boy, grabbing a freezer bunny creamsicle.

    "Uh, okay," the woman says, looking a little dazed at your generosity. But it does not take her long to grab a hot dog and drink. "Thanks very much."

    A closer inspection of the two reveals sharp, pointy elbows and chins as well as worn and slightly dirty clothes. It looks as if they may be living on the streets.

    "Yum," the boy says enthusiastically. "This ice cream is great!"

    "How long have you been in Willow Creek?" you ask, taking a small bite out of a hot dog.

    "About a week," the boy says, taking a gulp of drink and snatching up a hot dog.

    "The hot dogs are very good," the woman comments, a triffle nervously. "We have just moved here from Sunset Valley. I was able to get a job with the local cleaning service." She hesitates slightly. "Would you know of any cheap places for rent?"

    "For rent? Err..." you answer, thinking fast. This small family obviously needs a little help to get on its feet again. "Well, sort of. There is a tiny house community just getting started. I have a few model homes available. Perhaps you could live in one and do some small jobs around the park for part of the lot rent. In time, if you like it, maybe we can work out a way for you to own the home. How does that sound?"

    The woman looks almost scared as she asks about the kinds of jobs you want her to do. You laugh gently, and she joins in.

    "Nothing illegal or hard, just collecting the rent money from the other lots, picking up any litter, let me know if there is any trouble, that sort of thing," you assure her. "You can keep your job and do these things in your spare time. We only have about ten tiny homes in the park so far."

    "Will I have my own room?" the little boy asks, excited and smiling.

    "You sure can," you laugh. "Help me carry this food to my car, and I can take you out there right now. Then you can choose which model home you would like to live in!"

    ENTRY DETAILS: The main floor is open-concept living, with a kitchen tucked in behind a small "hallway" that contains a ladder to the upper floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a small, but functional, bathroom. The mother's room is furnished with a murphy bed, so she can have a quiet private space during the day too. The child's room is decorated with a "Bosley the Bot" theme, with plenty of toys, storage space, and a small desk for homework.
    Because of a mid-build change of plans, the game actually considers the house a 32-tile Micro home - it's actually 84 tiles. I had already started decorating the main floor when I changed directions, and enclosing it properly would have undone that work, so I left it.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This cosy starter home for a small family (a mother and a son) offers a combined living room/dining room/kitchen, a bathroom and 2 bedrooms. All at an affordable price of §32,244 (house only)/ §33,744 (total cost).
    This house is supposed to be part of a tiny house community in Willow Creek. To simulate this environment, I built this house on the Crick Cabana lot in the starter home area of Foundry Cove in Willow Creek.
    I used 80 tiles for this house (45 for the bathroom and 2 bedrooms; 35 for the combined living room/dining room/kitchen).
    To create a cosy atmosphere in the house, I decorated it in various shades of white, brown, beige and blue.
    The furniture are generally mismatched to reflect how the tiny house community is just getting started. As the community organisers are probably on a tight budget, they may need to furnish the houses through yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets and/or donations.

Hopefully, for those with eco lifestyle, when you download it you can give it the solar panels I couldn't give it. The living area also functions as the sleeping and work area for the mom. Containing a murphy bed and computer set up. The backyard has two gardening pots left empty and a grill with under-tree sitting.

    ENTRY DETAILS: When Valeria Fantaine first moved into this modest two bedroom model home it was cozy but lacked a personal touch. Since then she and her son Mateo have been hard at work updating their first real home. They spent many hours planting flowers surrounding the house and updated the interior with wallpaper, handmade knicknacks and simple furniture from local thrift shops. Though the home is small, Mateo is thrilled that they finally have enough space for a tiny kitten of their own, named Willow after their new hometown.
    This lot is named after the musical theater song “Somewhere That’s Green” where a down on her luck character sings a song describing her perfect house: “Far from Skid Row, that’s where we’ll go, somewhere that’s green.”

Valeria is moving up in life, earning income both through odd jobs around the neighborhood and selling her crafted goods on Plopsy, allowing her to finally get Mateo the kitten he always wanted. They both decided to name the kitten Willow after the community that welcomed them so warmly.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I designed the tiny home to be similar to some of the larger ones that are moved by large truck and placed into tiny home communities - hence it is long and narrow.However as it is a larger tiny home, it is fixed in place and landscaped. I designed a second similar one on the next lot to give a sense of the tiny home community. The house takes up 83 squares. A ladder leads up to the child's room and there is a computer and study space for the child and the mother to complete homework and odd jobs etc. The colour scheme is in warm tones of purples, oranges and reds as the sim I designed is originally from Sulani and it reminds her of home. The exterior is a sunny yellow with white trim. I tried to use minimal packs - and mostly feature Tiny living.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This tiny house (tier 2, 64 tiles) features two bedrooms (one bedroom for an adult and a boy's room with bunk beds), as well as a small lounge, small kitchen and bathroom with a shower. The bedrooms and living room open onto a small courtyard with a BBQ and outdoor seating area surrounded by pretty string lights. Things to do: TV and gaming console, bookcase for reading, BBQ, soccer ball. Notes: because this home is a model/show home made available to the mother and her son, the interior decor has a "staged" minimalist look instead of a "lived-in" look with a lot of personal clutter. The top bunk bed is decorative, not functional, but the bottom bunk bed is functional and has been play tested.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I designed this build on the Home Depot Tuff Shed, getting the measurements from them and building upon that. They've started to become a popular, inexpensive choice for tiny home builders, in the past year or so, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon.
    The shed home was delivered on a flatbed and placed where we wanted it. The first thing we did was to knock out the front wall on the first floor, (Of course, we built a new wall, 6' back from that first, to prevent the entire structure from collapsing upon itself) so that we could utilize the space, for a little front porch, for the new occupants and then we got to installing insulation and the drywall, which thankfully was finished on the first day. We had a great crew.
    I decided to make this a two bedroom home, because I had the room. This made the bedrooms and the bath a little tighter, but this family wasn't looking for a mansion, and everything I wanted to fit, fit. I also made sure that they had plenty of outdoor activities, creating a small Vegetable and Herb garden, for the Mom to be able to provide healthy, fresh veggies for her son, a grilling area, a laundry line, to save on electricity and a swing set, for the child to play on his own and for him and his Mom to have something to do together, to bond and share memories of their new home. A real home.
    The first floor is wide open, combining a Living area with a TV and seating. I was able to incorporate a small desk and PC, for the child to do his school work for Mom to use for her needs. The whole floor is open, with a Kitchen area, as well, with everything she needs to prepare healthy meals for her son.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: No, Thank you.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This little blue house may be small and cozy, but it's also comfortable and has all the basics. The bright orange and yellow colors in the living room bring some sunshine into the home. The bedrooms are just big enough to be comfortable and small enough to be cozy wiithout being cramped. The backyard has room enough for a play area and a small garden, which can be extended around either side of the house if some flowers are removed. The extensive flower garden is bright and colorful.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Mom, Stacie, and son, Austin, recently moved from Sunset Valley to Willow Creek and are off to a bit of a rough start. But with a can-do attitude, and maybe a little luck, they'll soon be moving on up.
    Stacie is determined to be the best mom she can be despite their desperate financial situation. And she seems to be doing a pretty good job as her son is a well-rounded social butterfly. He is a bit of a glutton but that's only because he's so used to getting such little food to sustain him. So when he's presented with an abundance of food, you bet he's going to eat it all! Luckily, in addition to the rent deal she has agreed to, she's able to put her neatness skills to work by working for a local cleaning company as well. Her ambition to give her soon a good life has them starting off on the right foot.

Ever since, she has been doing her best to raise her son alone, taking whatever jobs she could find. Those weren't enough, and soon the small family fell on hard times, eventually ending up on the street with no home. Now, after a chance encounter with an architect, things are starting to look up for the D'Angelis family. Veronica plans to work as hard as she can to improve their lives, rather than hoping for another handout.

Filipinos who lived in these homes usually had small living space, and I tried to incorporate some elements of that into this challenge. Casa Kubo is a more contemporary and upscale version of the Bahay Kubo which could fit right into a classy tropical suburb. It includes a covered porch area, great room with kitchen, one bedroom, a bathroom, and a den which can convert into a bedroom at night, thanks to the Murphy bed fixture. The sky roof also adds a bit more openness into this small home. Moreover, the veranda outside also has a compact laundry area. (Total tile count: 84 tiles)

    #BnS142 - Fall Designer Showdown

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 October 2020

    It is time for the designer showcase showdown! Please download the lot from the gallery called Fall Designer Showdown by SimTresa, #bns142.

    In the showdown, you have a foundation and seven wall sections, each with a different color swatch. Place the lot on any lot sized 40x30 or larger, in any direction that will fit. Choose ONE of the seven color swatches. You need to use a shade of this color in some way in each of the rooms of your house. Using it on the exterior is optional. Sell the walls after you've picked a color. You may not add anything to increase the size of the foundation given, except if adding stairs makes you add a space. You can build only on the foundation given. You can put walls of any kind and fences anywhere you wish on the foundation.

    Rules

    *NO changes to the foundation size or shape, except if adding stairs automatically adds a space.
    *Pick only one color to showcase.
    *No basements.
    *You can build in the yard as long as it is not attached to the house. Any required rooms cannot be off of the foundation.
    *You can use any fences, walls, windows, and doors that you wish. You can designate any space on the foundation as a porch or room (so indoor or outdoor space).
    *The lot must be fully landscaped.

    THE BRIEF

    *the budget is $250,000, which includes the lot as is.
    *The house should have:
    *At least 4 separate bedrooms/sleeping spaces
    *At least 2 and a 1/2 bathrooms.
    *A kitchen and place to eat.
    *A Laundry, either on or off the foundation.
    *Any other rooms or areas you wish to include.
    *The build can be as many floors as you want up but no basements.
    *Please include a picture of the ground floor from overhead with the grid on so that we can verify no changes were made to the foundation.
    Due to the nature of the build, there is not a Sims challenge this month.

    I decided to try a Southwestern theme for this house. I picked one of the colors in the pallet and used it as the color throughout the interior. Went with mostly that vibe but threw in a few non Southwestern items in there just for fun.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I made it under budget with no problems this time! lol I wasn't sure if we had to use the EXACT shade of green on the swatch or not so I decided to just use it as much as possible in every room. I've also gotten wiser and used all debug for the landscaping to save some money. I mentioned it in the slideshow but there was a random floor square on the right and a random piece of fence in the back, I wasn't sure if we could remove them so I kept them and made them blend in.

The home is a 5 bedroom, three bathroom home with a three car attached garage, great room, study, large country kitchen with a large dining room as well. It has a mud room and main floor laundry room, as well as master bedroom and ensuite. It has 4 children's bedrooms on the second level with a play area for the children and a cozy family room for the sims to enjoy together. Outdoors there is a swimmable fishing pond, gazebo with a hot tub, garden, basketball hoop, fire pit, and lots of room for the children to play. My favorite feature of this home is the sun room located off of the dining room.

    #BnS143 - Bed and Breakfast

    The deadline for this challenge is 30 November 2020

    You had fully intended to leave work behind today and just enjoy the charity fundraiser you had been invited to in recognition of all the good work you have done building homes, but you can’t help overhearing an interesting conversation between two of your tablemates.

    Setting aside your drink, you lean closer. “Excuse me, but did you say you’re opening a bed and breakfast?”

    The couple look over at you, surprised at having their conversation interrupted. “Yes, who -?” The muscular blond man’s blue eyes widen with recognition. “Wait, you’re the guest of honor, aren’t you? I’m Noah Wainwright, and this is my wife, Viviana.” He indicates the slender, dark woman beside him.

    “A pleasure to meet you.” You shake hands politely, but your curiosity is still piqued, wondering if you might be able to help in some way.

    “You asked about our plans for a bed and breakfast,” Mrs. Wainwright says once introductions are exchanged. “We’re actually planning to renovate my family’s old estate after selling off some of the land to raise money.”

    Mr. Wainwright nods. “We want to maintain the basic Colonial look of the exterior while modernizing the interior. We thought we could convert four of the six bedrooms into guest suites and keep the two attic bedrooms for the family.”

    “There will be a common kitchen and dining room as well as living space and other areas for guests to gather and enjoy themselves, of course,” Mrs. Wainwright adds.

    “That sounds like an ambitious project. Have you chosen an architect yet? I would love to lend my services,” you say, feeling a familiar excitement at the prospect of beginning a new project.

    “Don’t forget the guesthouses,” Mr. Wainwright reminds his wife with a nudge.

    “Oh those, they’re not really necessary, just a silly dream,” Mrs. Wainwright demurs.

    “Please tell me about them. I enjoy making dreams come true,” you prompt.

    “Well, if you insist….”

    “I do. At least, I can tell you if it’s possible to do anything with these guesthouses.”

    Mrs. Wainwright glances at her husband, who nods for her to continue. “All right. They’re really just some old one-room cabins used by field hands in the old days, I don’t think either even has plumbing. I thought it would be fun to renovate them into comfortable guesthouses for guests who want more privacy and a longer stay.”

    “That sounds very doable. When can I come have a look?” You ask.

    “Tomorrow? We can show you around, and discuss everything in more detail,” Mr. Wainwright suggests.

    "I'll be there," you promise.

    LEVEL: Not sure! First time participating in this challenge although I build all the time:)
    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Viviana Wainwright recently inherited her family's old estate that dates back to the late 1700s after her uncle retired and moved to Sulani. She and her husband Noah decided to do extensive renovations and convert it into a Bed and Breakfast. Viv and Noah are both colorful characters and have always dreamed of running an inn. Now that their kids have left home to attend college they will have time! The house is at least 200 years old and is typical of French Colonial homes found across in the southern US. Viv wanted to maintain the historical feel of the house while also updating fixtures and making repairs. But she also wanted to instill a modern chic feel as well.
    The first floor consists of a full kitchen with laundry area, 1 guest bathroom, common dining room with bar and card tables, shared living room with computer, tv, chess table and sitting areas, and a music room.
    The second floor consists of 6 guest bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms with 3 tiers based on room amenities (size of room and bathroom) The "third" floor consists of a hallway and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in the attic that Noah and Viviana use as their living quarters. They use one bedroom as a living room and office. Its got a murphy bed in it in the even their children come to visit.
    There are also 2 outbuildings that predate the main house and are about 250 years old that Viv's family lived in before the main house was constructed. They converted these into rustic cabins with bedroom, bathroom, and dining/sitting areas. There are also 2 additional outbuildings that are recent additions to the property. One is an old trailer that is the home to service staff. The other building contains a yoga room, massage, and steam room. Viviana is a licensed yoga instructor and masseuse. The rest of the property is beautifully landscaped with a small lake (actually a pool) , fishing pond, folly, garden area, etc.
    I had so much fun building this! Its the first time to try building a colonial style house though. Since I chose Willow Creek as the location, I decided to go with the French Colonial style homes you find across the old parts of New Orleans and Louisiana. The two out buildings I styled with the brick-between-posts that was common when New Orleans and other cities in the southern US were first colonized.

    HOUSEHOLD: Mr and Mrs Wainwright ( https://www.ea.com/en-gb/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/74766D45219311EB87236119CC9F00CD )

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Oakenstead Plantation has been continuously owned by the Destremas family (ie one of the great old-money families in Willow Creek), since it was first built more than 200 years ago.
    Unfortunately, the previous owner of Oakenstead Plantation had run up quite a lot of debt in trying to prop up the Destremas family’s crumbling business empire.
    Following his death, his only daughter, Viviana Wainwright (nee Destremas) had sold off most of the plantation to raise money to pay off these debts. Viviana and her husband, Noah Wainwright, then turned Oakenstead Plantation into a small but charming bed and breakfast.
    As both Wainwrights are Family-Oriented, they thought that it would be a good idea to run a business from home. They could probably take better care of any future little Wainwrights that way.
    Plus, as Viviana is keen on pursuing her artistic dreams, she could supplement the family income by offering art lessons at the bed and breakfast.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The Wainwright B&B has six rooms to rent out (two of them deluxe, two normal, and two shared) as well as two separate cabins for guests requesting a little more privacy. Shared areas include the kitchen/morning nook, laundry, dining, formal living room, entertainment room, office study, porches, and backyard with large natural pond and hot tub. In addition, there are two bedrooms in the attic specifically for the family of the estate, which includes one adult room and one children's room with a shared bathroom.
    I didn’t realize until after uploading that my room entry was over budget and so I went back and changed the one cabin, but left me with more money, not less. I did change the images in my slideshow to match the new cabin room. However, if you download from the gallery it’ll still show the old cabin.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted the house to feel like it had been there a long time with mature plantings and the kind of details often seen in old homes. It was important that the inn feel like a home first and a business second, but also like someplace we would like to spend time. I decided to build it in the Magnolia Blossom Park Lot so it would feel like it had more land than it does. The location makes the house seem even more grand and expansive since guests can just run down to the river to fish any time. I imagine this architect coming in and trying to figure out how to update the building to code while maintaining the original details and adding modern amenities like a pool and screen porch.

    I assumed that because they inherited such a large estate that these sims would be fairly well off. However, they'd also be running a B&B and need to present as warm and welcoming. So I decided to really tone down their fashion choices without forcing them to be something they weren't.
    Viviana is focused on keeping her lineage going so that she can continue to pass down the estate to future generations. Whereas Noah is focused on getting (and staying) well off financially, also in hopes of passing down the fortune to future generations.
    They're both cheerful people and enjoy food and art together. Noah's outgoing nature is a great trait for hosting while Viviana's creative side help keeps the grounds beautiful and up to date.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I pictured Viviana to so privileged that she just doesn't think about money at all. She wears clothes that are comfortable for her and fit her well and then stops thinking about it. If you were to ask her about them, she'd shrug It's just a little something she picked up in Windenburg last time she was there. What do you mean you haven't been? Viviana loves her home and she loves her garden. Running this BnB is a way for her to keep her family's home now that they've settled her father's debts.
    Noah doesn't come from money and feels more pressure to fit in to the social circle he finds himself in now. He thought that he'd made his way onto easy street when he married Viviana and is somewhat annoyed that he has to go back to working. He loves his wife, but he might have a bit of a roving eye.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Noah and Viviana's old Colonial house has been fully renovated into a beautiful new Bed & Breakfast. It has been modernized as requested. By "modernized" I mean: each bedroom has been given it's own attached full bathroom and there have been many modern day features and activities added to upgrade the home. The house is located in Pendula View, the historical section of Willow Creek, on the Umbrage Manor corner lot. The House still has a classic elegance on the interior, making the guests (as well as Noah & Viviana) feel like they are living in the lap of luxury. The walls are decorated with geographical, travel, and postage stamp artwork throughout the home. This home features a sunny breakfast room, formal dining, and living room. Library, office, large communal kitchen, game room, laundry facilities for the guests, evening lounge, theater, table game room, gym, and sauna. I have created a beautiful communal living and entertaining space in the back yard for the guests to enjoy as well. Adding a snack bar, hot tub, loungers, chess tables, as well as tables for seating or enjoying a snack. I have renovated the two old one room cabins into guest houses, giving them plumbing as well. This was a huge project but was very enjoyable, as my first love in the game was building Colonial houses

    #BnS144 - A Winter Festival Miracle

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 December 2020

    Snowflakes drift slowly down outside. Inside, you and your employees are having a holiday party, complete with holiday carols, eggnog, and Secret Father Winter presents. It is a Saturday, so the office is closed. Everyone is laughing at a joke that Karl/Rose just read from a Winter Festival cracker when one of the other employees waves to get your attention and points at the front doors.

    Outside, a thin layer of snow on their various hats, stands a small group of hopeful teenagers. They smile and wave, so you unlock the door, wondering if they are carolers.

    “Hello,” you say with holiday cheerfulness. “how can I help?”

    A red-headed girl in a blue pom-pom hat pipes up, “We would love your help! We are from the local high school. Last summer, one of our favorite teachers, Miss Owens, came down with a rare illness. She was extremely sick for several months and ended up in the hospital. She had to sell her house to pay the hospital bills, and she has been homeless ever since. Winter Festival is her favorite holiday, and since the other teachers she usually stays with are going out of town, we want to give her a Winter Festival “miracle” by gifting her several nights stay in a local hotel. And maybe a special gift of some sort as well.”

    Another teen, a blond and burly boy, picks up the story. “We are collecting money to help Miss Owen. She is a very special lady who always makes every student feel welcome and excited about her subject. She really has a gift. We want to give her something special back for all her patience and kindness. Would any of you be willing to donate a few dollars to help us help her?”

    For a moment everything is silent in the office except for the carols. But you quickly recover from this special tale and invite the teens inside to warm up. You ask the young group several questions to get a better sense of their teacher’s situation. All your employees are also hanging on their words and thinking hard. Then you ask how much they have been able to raise so far.

    “We have nearly $3,000.00 so far,” a male in a red parka offers. “All of the teachers and staff have put in what they could, and nearly all the students have donated, too. Some kids have pledged their lunch money for the next week to help Miss Owens.”

    “A girl with very bright pink cheeks and bubble-gum pink hair adds, “We only just thought to try collecting from businesses. You are our first try. She gulps back tears as she begs you, “Oh, please say you will help us!”

    You look around at your employees, and you can almost see the wheels turning in their minds.

    “We will donate our time, right guys?” Says your construction manager, Kim. The construction crew all cheer their support of his statement.

    Karl volunteers, “Instead of sending the flooring the last client decided was wrong, we can use that. Oh, and the cabinets and kitchen appliances that we were going to donate. I can contact the local thrift stores for furniture...”

    Your man who contacts all the suppliers, Rob, butts in, “I bet we can scrounge some supplies and materials from our suppliers if we explain the situation. And remind them of the season.” He smiles broadly as the others all laugh.

    Your newest employee, Marvin from interior design, says, “And I happen to have a lot that I will donate. Since the wedding is now permanently off, I would rather see it go to a good cause then to have to brood over what might have been.”

    You give Marvin a quick hug, and he smiles.

    Other employees also speak up with ideas and donations. Within ten minutes, a plan to donate a small cottage to the teacher in great need is in the works. Several people are already on the phones, working hard with their connects to see just how much they can come up with.

    You turn to the now hopeful and more cheerful teenagers. “Please, continue on to the other businesses, showing this business card to them and letting them know that we are willing to build Miss Owens a home. Any plants, furniture, building materials, or donations of money or services will be greatly appreciated. Let’s make this Winter Festival Miracle happen!”

    The cheers and whistles drown out even the carols.

    ENTRY DETAILS: (Be sure to tell us about your entry) : I tried to limit packs - the 3 main packs were Cats and Dogs, Parenthood and the free holiday pack. One or two minor items come from Get together and Laundry Day. A lot of the objects in the living space feature the dark grey blue colour - I wanted it to look like they had painted the variety of donated objects to look uniform and belong together in the cottage. Miss Owens has a study and a beautiful window seat in the turret window to sit and read - or relax as she regains her health. I felt her favourite colour was pink (hence the exterior and bedroom colours). There are holiday decorations and as I don't own seasons - I made it a Summerfest celebration and placed Sandpals instead of Snow pals and placed some sand "snow" around them. I love the lot and feel its secluded location means the owners don't have to follow the dominant faux Tudor style of Windenburg.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This cozy little cottage is made out of different materials wich the students painted in warm colours suitable for Winter Festival. The furniture comes from practically everywhere, some of it is given by people who had no use for it anymore and some of it is store bought with the money the students collected. Some furniture has been repainted by the students so it would all match together.
    The students have also made holiday decoration and holiday cards.
    Since Miss Owens loves Winter Festival the students hope that she will feel right at home in her new place, surrounded by lovely holiday wishes and decorations.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Welcome to Bookworm Corner! This is a charity project for a local hero, a Literature Professor at the University of Britechester. It’s 1 bedroom, and 1 and a half bathrooms, and built with entirely donated materials, barely squeaking in under the budget for the build. (Shown in the second picture.) I adored this build, and had a terribly hard time getting things just right so that it still looked like a proper house but stayed in under the budget. Originally, the house had a garage and everything, but that made it too expensive and had to go.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Miss Owens is a good teacher who always makes every student feel welcome and excited about her subject. She was extremely sick for several months and ended up in the hospital. She had to sell her house to pay the hospital bills, and she has been homeless ever since. Her students decided to form a committee to collect money to do something special for her and the town got behind their efforts and donated money, land and materials for a new home. Students were based on the following descriptions from the entry details: blonde and burly boy,
    red haired in the blue beanie, girl with bright pink cheeks and bubble gum pink hair and a male in a red parka. I tried to keep to the same packs as I used with Miss Owens house.

    I decided that Ms Owens could live in Mt Komorebi, and while we didn’t manage to scrounge much furniture from the thrift stores, what we got was enough – especially when combined with the flooring and kitchen appliances we already had in stock. Limited time meant that while everything got playtested it does need moveobjects on to place properly.

Owens quite nicely. The home has a European cottage style, with vines growing up the stone walls and a feature copper roof over the bay window. The house has two fireplaces in the home for extra warmth and a large dining space for Miss. Owens to enjoy spending Christmas with her students and friends. She is an avid knitter and so you will find many hand made items throughout the home. There is also a fishing pond on the property for Miss. Owens to enjoy during her summer holidays as well.

    #BnS145 - Winter Designer Showdown

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 January 2021

    Calling all designers!

    It's time to show off your awesome skills in our Spring Designer Showdown!!!

    INSTALL LOT FROM THE IN-GAME GALLERY: Search for Hashtag #BnS145. The lot is by SimTresa and is titled "Spring Designer Showdown"

    In the showdown, you have a foundation to start with.

    Place the lot on any lot sized 30x20 or larger, in any direction that will fit.

    Your goal is to build a vacation retreat for either one person or a small family or group who want to celebrate in privacy or isolation, rather than having a huge party with lots of friends and family. The holiday can be any you like, for any season. Do make sure to show us exterior shots taken in summer, though. You may not add anything to increase the size of the foundation given, except if adding stairs makes you add a space. You can build only on the foundation given. You can put walls of any kind and fences anywhere you wish on the foundation.

    Rules

    *NO changes to the foundation size or shape, except if adding stairs automatically adds a space.
    *No basements.
    *You can build in the yard as long as it is not attached to the house. Any required rooms cannot be off of the foundation.
    *You can use any fences, walls, windows, and doors that you wish. You can designate any space on the foundation as a porch or room (so indoor or outdoor space).
    *The lot must be fully landscaped.

    THE BRIEF

    The budget is $100,000 which includes the lot as is.
    At least one bedroom
    At least one bathroom.
    A kitchen and place to eat.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This is a (basegame) southern plantation style getaway, a home away from home. Great place away from the busy city to have a relaxing stroll in the park, feed the koi in the pond or have a lazy day inside in this beautiful house with 3 bedrooms/bathrooms. This is the perfect retreat for a small family or a couple of friends. The weather is guaranteed sunny every day (with basegame) and perfectly enjoyable when having breakfast in the round sun room.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please, though after this challenge I am painfully aware my landscaping needs work...

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Design Notes: Why ‘Indulgence’ for a sub 100k build? Whilst I did try to make this feel reasonably luxurious, it's actually because after a fairly extended break from building I decided to indulge myself…I normally limit pack use but I used all my favourite items from a gazillion packs, I really wanted to play around with platforms and I decided to design to suit what I currently crave in real life…. and then try to make it all work
    Sunshine, tick! A clean modern build that doesn’t have a 100 year old leaky roof, tick! No clutter to tidy up, no carpets to vacuum, no home schooling to fit in, tick tick tick! Suspended fire place that I love but *really* won’t fit in my actual home? Built it instead, big tick!! (Oh and you may notice the well stocked bar…depending on the day that could well come higher in the wish list haha). I’ve also got a bit of fascination going with creating structure in an unstructured environment which is how the build wound up in Sulani when it would have been easier to use Oasis Springs!!
    At first glance I thought this was a nice simple foundation….actually found it quite tricky – nice challenge BuildNShare, thank you!
    Sales pitch:
    So, welcome to our beautiful rental property - purposefully and breath-takingly positioned on an outcrop of Sulani, Indulgence Getaway showcases the island's award winning beaches and mesmerising sea views. Whichever holiday you want to celebrate in peace and solitude, this is the place for you! Polished concrete floors, squishy seating (or as close as I can get with Sims sofas!) and artistic flair are the order of the day throughout, plus there's a gleaming showstopper of a bar that's ideal for home mixed cocktails.
    (Thoroughly playtested but does need moveobjects on to place so that all the scenery stays put)
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Most certainly, all feedback very welcome!

    #BnS146 - The Bradley Bunch

    The deadline for this challenge is 28 February 2021

    "Come in," you call out when you hear a knock on the door.

    You look up from the blueprints you were checking as the door opens and people start pouring into your office. You greet them and lead them over to the conference room so everyone can have a seat.

    "Hello," the man says crisply. "I am Dan Bradley. And this beautiful lady is my bride-to-be, Agatha Hornsby." The woman flutters her fingers at you. "These three boys are mine. Henry is 15, Harold is 10, and Robbie is 6. Agatha's three girls are Katie, aged 14: Sherry is 9; and Mindy is 5. And this is our maid, Beatrice Woolworth."

    You smile and nod at everyone.

    "We are getting married next month," Mr. Bradley continues, "and we have decided to move into Agatha's house in Willow Creek. The problem is that the house only has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Obviously, seven people need more in the way of space. We need a master bedroom with an ensuite. Beatrice needs her own bedroom and bathroom. All of the girls can share one bedroom, and all the boys can share another bedroom. We will need two more bathrooms for the kids, and a powder room on the main floor for guests. And all the usual rooms: a kitchen, a living room, a study, and a laundry room. A place to grill outside, and a place for the kids to play."

    Agatha speaks up. "I love the look of my home, so can you keep the style of the house the same as much as possible? You can use any pieces of furniture from the house. Feel free to paint anything you wish to."

    "Okay," you say, scanning your notes. "I just need to know the budget and the address."

    "With our savings and the cash wedding presents, we have $70,000," Mr. Bradley says.

    Agatha hands you the address on a sheet of paper. (Riverside Roost in Willow Creek valued at $41,704 currently)

    "That sounds great! I can certainly have that ready for you to move in by the end of this month," you say cheerily. "And congratulations on your wedding!"


    THE BRIEF


    *due 28th February, 2021
    *your budget is $70,000 over the current cost of the lot.
    *remodel the current house on the lot to include the following:
    *a master bedroom with en suite.
    *a bedroom and bathroom for Beatrice.
    *a bedroom for the girls and another for the boys.
    *2 bathrooms for the kids to use and a powder room on the first floor.
    *a kitchen, a living room, a study, and a laundry room.
    *a grilling area and a play area outside.
    *landscape the lot.
    *keep the style of the house.
    *use anything from the house. You may “paint” any object in the house currently to use for the remodel.

    Sims Challenge

    *create the Bradley Bunch, excluding Beatrice.
    *show their clothing choices and them in their new home.
    *include aspirations, traits and skills.

    Room Challenge

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Imgur is not cooperating with me, I can’t get posts to be made public. I have provided the screenshots below under spoilers to aid in loading.
    ENTRY DETAILS: I kept the same clapboard style exterior from the original build but with a pink, yellow, and white trim. I love the New Orleans style and spent several hours on Pinterest looking for landscaping ideas for this build. You’ll find a lot of oleander, gardenias (white flowered bushes), palms, and ferns in this yard. I tried to match it to the rest of the neighborhood. There is a large magnolia tree in the back. I kept the front of the house the same width, but expanded and enclosed the porch at the side of the house both upstairs and downstairs to accommodate a dining room (downstairs) and bedroom (upstairs). The second floor was also expanded to accommodate larger shared rooms for the girls. I was trying to use a lot of the original furniture, but I loved the couches featured in the Paranormal Stuff pack as well as Parenthood and drew mostly from that. I think the combined furniture styles mesh well with the aesthetic typical in Willow Creek. I went with either mint green, grey, or light blue with trim tones throughout the house. The floor is still a wood floor but was refinished to a lighter stain. I added a lot of “mess” details (accessory wise) throughout the house, because with 6 rambunctious children, there will be plenty of destruction. The living room is large and is truly a family room, all the toys etc for the children are located here for their enjoyment and enrichment.

    Inspired by the riverside location of Riverside Roost, I have decorated the room in watery shades of white and blue.
    Also, as the boys’ step-mother, Agatha, wanted to keep the style of Riverside Roost as much as possible, I went for a traditional, countrified style in the décor of the room.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have to say I had a lot of fun making this family! I plan on playing them later! Dan Bradley: He is a hoot. He works in the Tech Guru career (midlevel) and is an adult (about 40). After his first wife was abducted by aliens never to be seen again (although rumor has it she was seen hanging out with Don Lothario), he was left with 3 rambunctious boys to raise. Dan is a geek, family oriented and a goofball. You will often find him making references about the Marvel Universe or making fun of Journey to Batuu. He is a cheerful guy but tends to be a source of embarrassment to his sons. He always wears socks with his sandals. He was cosplaying at the Geek Con in San Myshuno when he met…
    Agatha Hornsby: Agatha is a lovely lady. She was left with 3 young daughters to raise all on her own after her husband was tragically squished by a vending machine while buying a bottle of green tea. Agatha is an adult and has a mid level position in the journalism career. She is a major bookworm, cheerful, and family oriented. Agatha was writing a feature article on the outdoor Geek Con held in San Myshuno every year for the San Myshuno Times newspaper. She normally is not into these weird geeks, but when she spotted that second Boba Fett wearing socks and sandals talking to Darth Vader, she just had to introduce herself. Boba Fett had her in stitches with his quirky sense of humor. And that is how she met Dan. Agatha loves to write slam poetry and can often be found at the library reciting it Beatnik style. Both Dan and Agatha want to be super parents and want their children to succeed at all things in life.
    THE CHILDREN
    Henry Bradley: Dan’s oldest son, 15 yr old Henry is strikingly different from his father. He has recently adopted a goth aesthetic, or emo. He can never decide. He loves the color black. Henry is a loner and gloomy. You will often find him moping in his section of his room. He wants to become a writer in the future. He has secretly written several fanfic novels featuring a steampunk duo of Sherlock Holmes and Kylo Ren who solve mysteries on planet Sixam. Henry gets along well with Agatha believe it or not. He loves coffee, and recently took a part time job working for Starbucks. He also likes listening to metal and electronica music.
    Harold Bradley: Henry’s little 10 yr old brother. Harold is the spitting image of his dad and is a total geek. He loves robots and anything and everything Voidcritter. He can play just about any videogame. If only they could get him to play outside.
    Robbie Bradley: Dan’s youngest son at 6 yrs old. I really debated making him either a toddler or a child. I went with a toddler life stage but I gave him maxed skills so he has full range of speech and motion. He has a more child age fashion instead of that of a younger toddler. He should be ready to age up to a child stage but he is a sweet kid and is fun to play. He’s a curious little booger and loves to explore.
    Katie Hornsby: Agatha’s oldest daughter at 14 developed horrible acne after hitting puberty and has started using a lot of make-up to cover it up. While doing so, she discovered a major love for fashion, style, and make-up. Although her fashion statements may not be the most coordinated at this stage. But give the girl some due, she’s still learning. She is a DIVA. Katie is self-absorbed and an insider. She wants to lead the most exclusive fashion clique in highschool, but also make as many friends as possible. Agatha enrolled her daughter into drama club in an effort to give the child a creative outlet.
    Sherry Hornsby: Katie’s 9 year old sister is quite different from her mother and sisters. She loves the outdoors! You’ll often find this little girl playing on the swing set or out looking for frogs and little fish. She lives to camp. As a result, Agatha signed her up for the Scouts, and Sherry has taken it like, well, a fish to water!
    Mindy Hornsby: Agatha’s youngest daughter at 5. Again I debated making her a toddler or child. I went with toddler. She has maxed toddler skills with full range of motion and speech. She’s adorable! But she likes to do everything herself since she is quite independent.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Construction Notes:
    I built out the second floor to create a second large bedroom for the boys. I also extended the rear portion of the house to accommodate the additional bedroom for Beatrice. The study area is incorporated into the open plan design of the front of the house. The upstairs bathroom was extended to make it slightly larger for all the children to use. I cheated a bit and separated out two toilets rather than making two separate bathrooms because I had such little space to work with as it is. I also refinished the wood flooring (including the stairs) and updated the tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. All wallpaper was updated as well. In addition, I broke down the wall between the kitchen and hallway, opening up the area for multi-use.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The Hornby family is merging with the Bradley family to create one very large (and hopefully happy) family! Parents Dan and Agatha have three children each, meaning there are lots of kids to wrangle. But what family doesn't have its challenges? The Bradley Bunch is ready to go!
    Individual summaries:
    Dan
    Dan has always wanted a big family and his dream is finally coming true. He is dedicated to his job but enjoys fishing and being outdoors with his family in his time off.
    Agatha
    When you think of a super parent, Agatha is who you should be visualizing. And it’s a good thing with six kids! She is family-oriented and neat but doesn't take herself too seriously. She can be a total goofball with the whole family.
    Henry, 15
    Henry, age 15, is in that physically awkward teen phase where he's easily clumsy. Hopefully that doesn't get in the way of his desire to become a chef. Kitchen accidents do happen! As a vegetarian, he wants to revolutionize the use of plants in food.
    Harold, 10
    Harold, age 10, is a bit of a mischievous and rambunctious kid, he likes to feel physically powerful and sometimes that ends up looking like bullying other kids. Being the middle boy has been difficult on him as he doesn't feel he gets the attention he deserves, and thus acts out.
    Robbie, 6
    A musical savant, this whiz kid is learning to play both the piano and the violin. Next year he's considering picking up the electric guitar… if he can even hold one!
    Katie, 14
    A bit of a gloomy teen, Katie, age 14, uses her teen mood swings to fuel her creative senses. Her gloominess tends to worsen the longer she goes without painting.
    Sherry, 9
    A social butterfly, Sherry, age 9, is happiest surrounded by her friends and taking part in club activities around the neighborhood. She often gets in trouble at school for talking during class.
    Mindy, 5
    Mindy, age 5, is a whiz kid, constantly seeking out new knowledge and skills. She has been on the honor roll since preschool and looks to be continuing that track in kindergarten.

    This lovely New O'rlean's double shotgun home has been renovated, and modernized, but left with it's original charm. The home is now able to house 9 sims comfortably, with plenty of seating, and room for a big roost. The home inside has a traditional mid-century decor vibe. The simple functional style of this home allows for maximum use of the smaller space. The main addition of the basement really allows for the family to spread out. The yard has also been transformed, expanding the upper balcony, and adding a lower patio. Play area's for the kids make this space family friendly.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I challenged myself to leave the external structure of the build as is as much as possible for authenticity, changing some of the color and style. I added an enclosed side yard for family leisure activities, and gave the interior of the home a retro vintage vibe. The maid's quarters are close to the central living area as well as the kids rooms. The parents get a little more privacy with a bedroom, office and private porch upstairs.

    This is a modified double shotgun home great for entertaining and for a large family. It has 4 bedrooms, 5 baths. We had to redo this house for a new family while keeping the “bones” of the house. There is a master bedroom with en suite. The 3 boys and 3 girls share rooms and they each have their own bathrooms. The housekeeper has her own room also with En Suite. Plenty of activities for the whole family inside as well as outside. There is a BBQ area, swings, doll house and bikes to use outside as well as a lovely garden. No CC was used, #MOO, #testing cheats, #show hidden objects.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Build notes:
    I had no idea that Willow Creek was based on New Orleans and I’d never heard of a shotgun house before this – cue lots of research….who would have guessed that Maxis built long narrow houses with ridiculously high walls intentionally! I decided to try to stick to the traditional concept of keeping the central wall in the double shotgun, no hallways and having to cut through each room to get to the next….it made for some tricky decorating in long narrow rooms! After looking at all the amazing colours in the New Orleans homes and a fairly monochromatic last couple of builds, I also decided that for this challenge I wanted to have a riot of colour, so I made my Agatha and Dan into a creative, colour loving pair and built for them I learned a lot and had great fun with this one, thank you @BuildnShare!
    Sales pitch:
    Welcome to the newly renovated Riverside Roost. As Agatha loved the double shotgun style of her original home and requested we keep it as much as possible, we simply extended the camelback (upper floor) right to the back and proposed adding a small extension over the deck - thankfully Agatha agreed! We also extended the deck, added a pool and created some beautiful garden areas for the couple and their children.
    Sadly we discovered dry rot in the roof so it had to be replaced, but we kept the style; we also brightened up the paint and trim work New Orleans style to better suit this vibrant, lively family.
    Dan & Agatha share a love for bright colours and collecting eclectic art & furniture, so the home is filled with lots of pops of colour and some fantastic light fittings plus you'll find plenty of the exotic indoor plants that we brought from gardener Dan's old home.
    We thought that was a bit rough on the teens to share with the younger siblings, so managed to get them separate rooms too. (16 rooms in total in this fairly small footprint, they must be mad haha)
    Fully playtested (even hired a butler to be the maid – he was rubbish though so Agatha sacked him!), built with MOO but places perfectly without.

A wrap-around patio is added for added family fun. The laundry is included on the 2nd floor with the bedrooms for convenience. In the hallway upstairs I've made room for a "study area" for the older children to do their homework, since there's not a lot of extra room in the bedrooms. There's a large private balcony off of the master bedroom for some "quiet time" for the parents when needed. A basement is included with a large family room for the family to gather and have fun, and there's also a study with an office in the basement.

    That this group might somehow form a family.
    That's the way we all became the Bradley Bunch!

    #BnS147 - Empty Nest

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 March 2021

    You have just sat back down behind your desk opposite the elderly couple when the man speaks.

    “We heard how you helped our friends when their homes flooded, and hope you can help us too,” Robin Nestlehut begins.

    “I would love to help. Tell me what I can do for you,” you request, imagining that they must have lost their home in a similar natural disaster.

    “It’s nothing like you must be thinking, please forgive us,” Robin’s wife, Wren, speaks up. We have a big old farmhouse and a large farm to go with it.” “Unfortunately, we can’t keep it up ourselves anymore and none of our children are interested in coming home to take it over, so we have to sell.”

    Robin looks away wistfully for a moment, then seems to brighten. “But we’ve decided to use the opportunity to downsize. We would like a small house with a small yard, which will be easier for us to care for.”

    “Two bedrooms would be nice, one could serve as both a guest room and a hobby room,” Wren adds. “We’ll need two bathrooms as well.”

    “Our favorite room in the farmhouse was the sunroom, so we would prefer a sunroom in the new house,” Robin requests.

    “I think we can work with that. I hope you love your new home just as much as your old one,” you say.


    THE BRIEF


    Budget: 40,000
    The house needs:
    At least 2 beds and 2 baths
    One room must double as a guest room and hobby room.
    A sunroom
    The usual kitchen, living and dining areas.

    Sims Challenge

    Create Robin and Wren Nestlehut and show them enjoying their new home. Be sure to show all of their outfits in the slideshow.

    Room challenge

    Create the guest room/hobby room. Budget: 10,000

    ENTRY DETAILS: I built a mid-century bungalow for the couple of empty nesters. I had to use basegame only, since it is all I have. Could have used a few extra simoleons to finish it off super nice... Anyway, I didn't want to compromise on the look of the house too much and give it a nice mid-century styled look. The main living/kitchen area is open-plan, but cozy with brown and orange colors. The bedrooms are relaxing and light colored, all with plenty of light and a view of the community garden. the guest bedroom doubles as an art studio and the outside garden is not high-maintenance, but pretty and relaxing. I did add blinds to the bedrooms, but no curtain to the rest of the house for budget reasons and the fact that basegame curtains are fairly dumb... lol

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    To make the Nestlehuts, who used to live in a farmhouse, feel more at home, I chose a traditional architectural style (double gallery house) and a countrified interior design style (farmhouse/craftsman) for Nestlehut Nook.
    As the Nestlehuts’ favourite room in their old house was the sunroom, the facade of Nestlehut Nook has been decorated in bright, cheery shades of red, white and yellow.
    Finally, given that the Nestlehuts used to own a farm, I added some nature-y skill objects (like a bee box) so that they can stay connected to the great outdoors in their new home.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I tried to be as mindful as possible to the needs the Nestlehuts, due to the fact they are an elderly couple especially. Easily accessible areas (no stairs) and a warm climate were a must. I tried to make the exterior harmonious with the natural vegetation around the neighborhood as well as the surrounding buildings. I have started them out with a small succulent garden, but there is plenty of open space for them to develop a more extensive garden if need be.

    Hello! This is my very first Build-n-Share entry on the forums. I was a bit confused on whether the budget was $40,000 or $35,000, so I erred on the side of caution. If there's any issues with my submission I'm happy to rectify them - it's a lot of info to take in at first!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I went with a Canadian Pacific Northwest vibe for this challenge, thinking of all the retirees that end up on islands just off the coast up here.
    Robin and Wren Nestlehut have downsized from their beloved farm in the interior to enjoy retirement on the beautiful coast of the Pacific Northwest. Having lost their last home due to flooding but still craving a peaceful rural environment, Robin and Wren opted for a stilts house perched on a hill which merges seamlessly with its forested surroundings - no risk of flooding here! The Nestlehuts can take in the wilderness from their back porch, tend to their small garden patch, and fish in the nearby pond. Robin and Wren are both creative souls too. Robin enjoys playing his guitar in the sunroom and sometimes Wren makes an appearance to knit by his side, later retreating to her multi-purpose room to masterfully render landscape paintings.The couple’s eclectic, colourful decor reflects their personalities and fondness for hand-crafted things. Wren’s nationally renowned paintings are displayed prominently throughout the house.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Hello All! Here is my entry for this motnh's challenge. I really enjoyed building this house. I figured that the Nestlehuts would want to move somewhere warm and cold free. I built on the Raffia Quinta lot in Oasis Springs. This 2 bedroom/2 bath house is a fusion of US Southwest style house with Craftsman elements. I figured the Nestlehuts would have brought a lot of their furniture from the old farmhouse to the new. There is an antique vibe to the furniture. My version of the Nestlehuts are as a quirky couple. They really never had a a defined sense of style in their decor and is happy that way. Therefore they have eclectic furniture. They are passionate about their hobbies and the house reflects that. Wren has a knitting craft room in the back. They have an extra bed for visiting children/grandchildren. Robin still likes to poke around the garden a bit so he has a gardening area in the backyard and a shed with a woodworking bench. But the couple especially want to travel so

    ENTRY DETAILS: Robin and Wren are both creative souls. Robin is a talented guitarist: he and his close friends have been playing folk music at local pubs together for decades, amassing a local following. Wren is a renowned painter and artisan. She oozes creativity and can occasionally be spotted in town in her colourful outfits. The couple’s eclectic decor reflects their personalities and fondness for hand-crafted things. Wren’s masterful landscape paintings are on display throughout the house and she uses the guest bedroom as her personal studio. A short distance from home, the couple are able to enjoy walks along the rugged coastline.
    Robin’s Style: Neutral and practical with a hearty helping of 70′s nostalgia. He’s got a pocket for every situation! He also detests getting dressed up and pulls out the same two outfits he's been wearing for way too many years.
    Wren’s Style: Vibrant, customized, and hand-made! Wren is not afraid to mix colours, patterns, and chunky jewellery. Her fashion is a reflection of her creativity and cheerful attitude. She also wears a lot of knits - a cozy choice for temperate coastal weather.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I enjoyed making this couple! I had a fun vision for the Nestlehuts. Robin and Wren Nestlehut inherited an old farm in Brindleton Bay back when they first married. Which was perfect because Robin had always dreamed of being a farmer. Wren was first a housewife helping her husband with the farm and raised their 4 kids. After their children were older and nearing their teen years, Wren started teaching grade school. They had the quintissential traditional lifestyle. But don't let this spunky couple fool you! Now that their youngest has finally left the nest (mind you he was pushing 30) they have decided to break away from the farm and enjoy their retirement to the max!! They sold their old farm and farmhouse and moved to sunny Oasis Springs.
    Robin loves the outdoors, is cheerful, and adventurous. He mastered the gardening career and has since retired. He has completed the botanist, successful lineage, and soulmate aspirations. Robin has life skills. His hobbies include woodworking, reading, bowling, and dancing. Robin has always wanted to travel and would like to pick up hiking. His current aspiration is Outdoor Enthusiast. Maybe a camping trip to Granite Falls would be fun? OR, a hiking trip through the mountains in Mt. Komorebi? OR...Sailing in Sulani? A fishing trip to Selvadorada?! So many decisions!!
    Wren loves the outdoors, is adventurous, and creative. She is a colorful lady and beloved grade school teacher that has since retired. But she is not known for her sense of style. Maybe colorful....to garish? Anyway this feisty grandma loves to bowl and can get down and boogie with the rest of them. I had a blast making their 70s style disco outfits for the Party category:) She has a few tattoos peaking around here and there that embarrass her children and grandchildren to no end...especially the lower back tattoo lol. Wren has mastered the Rennaisance sim aspiration, big happy family, and soulmate. She recently picked up knitting, and wants to become the Lady of Knits! But Wren is also adventurous. She decided to put her own spin on it...knitting and travel! She'd love to make a sweater for the hermit living in the mountains of Granite Falls...A scarf for the mermaid she met in Sulani...Socks for the skeletons at the temple in Selvadorada? Knitting a hat on the peak of Mt. Komorebi? YES PLEASE!

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Nestlehuts much prefer nature over electronics and so there really aren’t any in the home, other than an old jukebox that Robin rescued from a closing diner. When building the house, they took location into careful consideration. They wished to have some privacy while still being close to a fishing hole. They were ecstatic to discover that their home would have a small pond of their own! With Wren’s joy of knitting, they knew they would have to double their small guest room as a knitting room as well. Wren loves to rock in her chair slowly while reminiscing or working on her latest project. In addition to the firepit out back, there is also a large fireplace inside the home. What can I say, sometimes the elderly get cold? Besides, Robin loves to nap on the couch in front of a raging (and contained) fire.

There is a lovely covered porch out back with a planting area, eating area and just plain relaxing area. This home is close to the river for ease of access to fishing. It is beautifully landscaped. It is comfy, homey and has good internet.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Design Notes: Inspiration for this build came from this pic by Jim Mitchell that I found on Pinterest (Romantic Garden flowers worked great but totally didn't fit the budget lol, but I kinda got there!). I really wanted to try to get the lane winding up to the house - and I really wanted some sheep in the shot - so I had to use a 40x30 lot to get enough room and Summer Home was so perfect for my build I decided it was worth blowing nearly 10% of the limited budget on. Inspiration for the inside came from the dozens of similar cottages I’ve holidayed in over the years…I wanted that hodge podge, slightly mismatched but totally cosy feel. Plus of course I wanted to play with my new kitchen
    Playtested. Built with MOO but places & plays perfectly without. Some light TOOL use (mostly for plants on the slope as it’s quicker than raising it up from underneath) and started off as pack light but added a few more in just through low cost clutter to finish off. Thoroughly enjoyed this @BuildnShare, thank you!
    Sales pitch:Welcome to the new home for retiring sheep farmers Robin and Wren Nestlehut. Ready to downsize but heartbroken at the thought of leaving the land that's been in the family for generations, we found the ideal solution - instead of selling it all, choose a couple of small fields to keep and build on! As it happened, there was an old tumble down cottage near to Robin's favourite fishing pond, so the Nestlehut's came to an agreement with the new buyer that they would keep this little parcel of land and we renovated the cottage to match all the clients requests.
    Also, twice a week the new farmer will bring part of the beloved sheep flock to visit and they can graze in the pond field to keep the grass down....so the Nestlehut's get their small cottage with a small easy to maintain yard, get to visit with the sheep and get the benefit of retaining a second field in case they ever decide they've downsized too far and want a garden shed/play area for the grandkids etc.....perfect!!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I chose to give Robin & Wren a small two story farm/cottage style home in the country in Windenburg. The yard is small and so it should not require much maintenance, although I have given them a few garden pots to enjoy growing some fresh vegetables. The property has stunning views and access to many prime fishing spots, the perfect retirement hobby. The house has an open concept layout with sunshine yellow walls and many pictures of memories made in their farmhouse mounted on the walls throughout the house. I have given them the sunroom they requested and also a hobby room; complete with an easel, guitar, book shelves, knitting tools, crafting desk, computer and storage for crafting supplies. Robin & Wren should feel right at home!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I made a small country house style house for Robin and Wren in one storey, in Dashsund´s Creek lot (20x30) Bridleton Bay. It is a very private place sourrounded by nature but with easy access to the beach and the country, hiking trails and stunning views. The yard is small and full of plants that do not require maintenance. They have two porches, one on the front and other on the back by the sunroom, both with a bench to sit. In the back yard I made a BBQ area under an arbor, which is a very nice place to have meals with family. There are three planters by the left too, if they want to enjoy gardening. The house has an open layout and it has a mix between rustic and traditional with use of stone, wood and stucco for walls. More in the descriptions in the slideshow.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Of course.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Westbrook Construction Company is excited to put this rejuvenated first-time flip back on the market. Spacious and charming, it's perfect for any family, complete with a basement in-law suite. Both the master and inlaw bedrooms have an en suite for privacy. It's a steal for waterfront property in Willowbrook, a charming family-oriented neighborhood. Stop by an open house today, this won't be on the market for long!
    The lot has been designed to be as eco-friendly as possible to keep Willowbrook clean and has a delightfully homey feel. With all the renovations and new appliances, there should be little need to call a repair service. It’s almost as if you have little gnomes keeping the place tidy for you!
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Please! I tried to bring the excellent criticism from the last challenge I participated into this house and feel it made it a stronger build.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The house was in pretty bad shape when the Gregory family bought it, but with some repairs and TLC, it now feels like home. Lisa and Darwin (kids) were super excited to be able to decorate their new bedroom, but their favorite part of the house is their parents' office because it has a hidden bookshelf door and they get to brag to all of their friends about the secret room! Jazmin (mom) loves how spacious the kitchen is, but she's hoping to purchase some newer appliances in a year or two when the family has saved up a bit more money. Colleen (teen) adores having her own space; she never got to just relax and chill with her friends at home when her family lived in a cramped apartment in San Myshuno. Katy (toddler) is still learning to talk, but she insists that she's a bunny princess whenever she's playing in her new bedroom and her parents have never seen her be so excited for bedtime. Clarence (dad) is happy to see his family so happy. He did a lot of the work on the house himself and it's great to see how much everyone appreciates the special things he included just for them.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This home belongs to a family of 4. John and Lisa wanted to fix it up when they moved out of the city after the baby was born. Since they are from the city they didn't want a full country style house so they settled on their dream modern farmhouse design. With muted colors against the black trims, lots of floral decorations and just an overall cozy feeling it was hard for them not to fall in love with this interior. The house itself has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a gorgeous master bathroom, baby room, yoga room, reading nooks, a butlers pantry and a candle making station. Now the outside is beautifully landscaped with wildflowers, rock walls, a private pond and a beautiful garden that you can see out the dinning room window.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I loved the house that Simtresa posted, with its sloping lot and daylight basement and I wanted to keep the character of the lot but just clean it up and make it pretty. Somehow in sectioning off the house to get a new layout, it kept on going in a very traditional direction, and I got this idea that the people that live there are restoring it to its former glory as an early 20th century frame farmhouse. I was all set to decorate it in a formal traditional manner, but things kept on going in a looser, more Bohemian direction. I decided to go with it and the build turned out very warm and homey.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This home has an eclectic country feel for a burgeoning family. I tore down all the walls on the first floor for an open concept family room, kitchen and dining area. Upstairs is a quaint reading area next to the teen girl's room with artwork by Babewire. She has her own modern bathroom to match. For the parents, the master's decor was inspired by the beautiful wall art by Babewire. The master bathroom enjoys a nice tub as well as shower and beautiful decor.
    In the basement is a spacious game room complete with bar, ping pong table, game table and video games. There's also the children's room for baby, toddler and child. Next to that is a beautiful bathroom as well as a country inspired office. To round out the home is a nice laundry room.
    Outside, there's a swingset and toddler pool, Patchy, yoga mat to enjoy the beautiful flowers. Bees and grub center for gardening. Jacuzzi and outdoor seating with bar. On the side is a horseshoe set and a secret wishing well!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I thought i would change the style of the house: modern shapes, but this time with warm colors. I added a couple of walls that make up "rooms", but I only used these as columns at the corners of the house, and as a base for the sloping roof to decorate the building. For the interior design, I started primarily from this orange color. I hope you like it!

    ENTRY DETAILS: First of all... the amount of poop used on the original lot is insane I wanted to keep the outside close to the original house so I kept the green siding and the windows. I added a few more here and there just to add in more light. I kept this as a single family home, there are 4 bedrooms with plenty of room for more beds for a growing family, or it can be used as a large rental house. I also wanted to utilize as much as the space as possible so I added a patio area to the front of the house and used the back yard for the kids and gardening. The basement and first floor were rearranged. I forgot to take pictures of the laundry room but its small anyway and just has a shelf, washer and dryer, and the broom and ironing board.

    STORYLINE
    "You're telling me lumber is how much!?! Oh, that will never do. There is no way we can make a profit with that kind of expense". You hang up the phone and begin to think of other options for the new development property you own in Newcrest. "Hmmm", you think to yourself. "There is that rental property we have over in Willow creek. Now might be the perfect time to move it. We can build something in Willow Creek later, when the lumber prices are not through the roof." As you grab a pen, you begin to get excited; "Yes, that is definitely what we will do!" You say, as you begin to jot down your plans. "We will raise the house three notches and add some weeping tile around the base, I noticed that the house seemed to have some flooding issues. We would hate for anyone to have to deal with that." You pause for a moment to think. "Let's add a garage, and a deck! They tend to be great for resale" you say. "I think that we will use greys and neutral tones as a color guide, we want this house to appeal to as many people as possible. We will give them all the extras! Make this a home that they can't live without!" Looking over your notes you are satisfied. "Yes," you say; "This will be the perfect suburban family home".
    ENTRY DETAILS:
    I made this one for me It is made to look just like your average cookie cutter home that builders build in my part of the world. A "spec" home it would be called. Just your (above) average new home build, aiming to please the majority...although for some reason my husband the IRL builder didn't approve of my design. I guess you can't please everybody

    My friend Jett and I were up to no good, again. We snuck into the Bridgeport Post Office. We found a stack of postcards next to a wormhole generator to the Sims 4 universe. Just for fun we tossed our backpacks through. We got confirmation that the transfer to the SIMs 4 universe was complete. We giggled with glee. Our backpacks had homework books, gym clothes and a change of clothes for a sleepover. Then I realized that in the Sims 4 universe they would figure out the owners of the backpacks and we would get in big trouble. Being quite small, I crawled through the wormhole generator to recover the backpacks.

    Sims 3 Sims and Sims 4 Sims are not compatible. As such, I overwhelmed the machine. As soon as I got to the Sims 4 the wormhole generator caught fire. I realized all the mail would be soaked by the sprinklers and this would get me in huge trouble. I grabbed the backpacks and got out of there before the Fire Brigade arrived.

    I have been on the run ever since. I have been staying in a tree fort in Magnolia Park. I wake up cold each morning and go workout and take a shower, I attend school online at the Library using the alias Lokey Drummer. After school hours I will sometimes paint at the museum. I busk. In the evening I dress up in clubwear and sneak through the back door to the Blue Velvet and get free chips. I use some of the money from selling my paintings to grill fruit. I have cobbled together a guitar for busking and bought an air mattress for my tree fort. I am going to be a young adult in two day

    I don’t know much about building but I think my teacher will be able to get me 20000 simoleons as long as I buy a lot. I would like a functional home on my new lot with the remaining funds after I buy the lot.

    I am open to having a home of 64 tiles or less for the skill gains multiplier.

    I like the aesthetic of the room Cosmic Clean from the room catalogue and would like a bathroom with some of those elements if possible.
    I will join the teacher career so I can improve the lives of Sim children just like my teachers helped me immensely. Their kindness made being alone and destitute bearable. I will need a home office for teaching online. I can’t teach online from the library for the sake of the privacy of the student.

    Please make the exterior of my house any colour but off-white.

    I know Elspeth is alone, but I decided to make a tiny home fit for 2, this way she can make it her home and keep it for as long as she needs it, whether she finds someone special or not. The house is all on one floor, making it spaceous and easy to get around. The shape is fun and provides for a modern feel. I decided to go with black, both for the modern look and the fact that Elspeth does not enjoy white/off-white. I know I got the comment before of not decorating the walls, but because of the shape and the colors used on the furniture, the house gets a 'busy' feel quite fast and if I were Elspeth, I would want to hang up a few of my own created paintings to make the house feel like my own

    ENTRY DETAILS: I saw a very cute trailer house by CozyBuilds and was inspired to build a trailer home for Elspeth. The stairs in the back even fold up so that Elspeth can travel with the house if she wants to! After building the trailer, I had only placed 24 tiles and the house seemed like a good size, so I decided to make a little 8-tile mini schoolhouse for Elspeth to teach from, which would allow me to keep the lot at 32 tiles for the extra micro home bonuses. The house itself was designed to look like a barn on the outside with solar panels to keep Elspeth's electricity bills down. To help save money, the kitchen appliances are used and most of the furniture is from thrift stores, but Elspeth found some pretty cool stuff and the savings left her with enough money to buy a washer and dryer. The bathroom is a miniaturized version of the blue cosmic clean bathroom that Elspeth liked so much, with a small piece of the large plant in a wall mounted vase and some added towels and storage. Most of the walls in the house are also the white "pretty in plastic" from the cosmic clean bathroom, with the exception of one wall in the living space being red wallpaper to help the house feel more fun. The house is fully playtested and 100% functional, though the outdoor trash can is a trash chute hidden inside of a debug trash bin. The schoolhouse was designed to look like an old one-room schoolhouse, with the chalkboard and easel placed strategically so that they will be visible from Elspeth's webcam. Since the house is so small, I built Elspeth a large beautiful garden that is meant to feel a bit like a walk through the woods, especially towards the back of the lot. She has a planter box and pots for vegetables, and outdoor chess table, a picnic table for eating outside, and string lights so she can even use the garden at night.

I could have placed the chess table and the easel in the backyard but I preferred to place them in two fakes balconies because they are covered by the roof. More in the slideshow descriptions.

    #BnS150 - Before and After

    The deadline for this challenge is 30 June 2021

    "Do you remember that house we worked on a few years ago? The one you always wished you could redo” Karl asks, bursting into your office.

    “There are several of those…” You reply, wondering why Karl has brought this up now.

    “The one we spent so much on the windows for that we didn’t have enough to finish the landscaping,” Karl prompts.

    “Oh, I remember now, the one with the mismatched railings and columns because the paint wasn’t mixed right-”

    “Yes! The one we were in such a hurry to finish we forgot some small Hmmmdetails, like pictures. I never could remember if we actually finished the roof trim.”

    You wince a little at the memory, thinking about how far you’ve come since then. You’ve learned a lot over the years. “So what brought on this trip down memory lane?”

    “Turns out the owners plan to sell, but first they want us to come back and finish the job. We can remodel and update as well.”

    You give him a disbelieving look. “I never thought I’d get the chance. Of course we’ll do it!”


    THE BRIEF


    Budget; The budget is the same as it was for the original challenge you entered your chosen build in.
    Pick your worst or least favorite build you submitted for any BNS challenge and rebuild it.
    The house should still be recognizable as the original in some way.
    The change can be as simple as new windows and doors or as thorough as an additional porch, new furniture, a new interior layout, and changes to wall and flooring choices.
    Show off any new skills you’ve picked up if you want. You may add new Build/buyfeatures or items from new packs.
    Remember to landscape.
    If you remember them or can find them, use the judges’ suggestions from the original challenge to inform at least some of your changes.
    Include a link to your original slideshow in your entry form - make sure to let us know what you changed.

    Newbies: Don’t worry, you’re not being left out! To participate in this challenge, you have some options:
    1. Choose a build you already have uploaded to the gallery. Show us before and after shots in the same slideshow if you didn’t have one before.
    2. Ask one of us for a build you can work on.
    3. Choose an existing EA build to remodel. Previous challenges of this time have featured the Goth and Caliente houses if you want to use one of those.
    Your budget is an additional 25,000 over the original lot's gallery price.

    Room challenge

    Choose your least favorite or worst room to remodel. It doesn’t have to be from the same build as your build entry.
    Note for newbies: you have the same three choices as above.

    Sim Challenge

    Pick a badly dressed townie or several and give them a makeover. Be sure to show us before and after outfits.

    Remember to include the entirety of the hashtag #BnS150 or your entry will not be judged!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I built the original home in 2015 so it was super fun to renovate it.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Inspired by the new Courtyard Oasis kit, I renovated the Nookstone starter house in Oasis Springs, turning it into a Moroccan style home. To keep the house somewhat recognizable, I left the exterior shape of the house the same and the interior layout almost the same, with just the kitchen and living room flipped, the bathroom enlarged and split into two smaller rooms, and a single wall piece removed from the bedroom entryway. I also moved the house forward on the lot so that I could replace the empty front yard with a large patio in the back. I looked at a lot of reference pictures while doing the renovation and I hope I did justice to the Moroccan style. I designed the house to be colorful and open, with lots of big windows and archways to let in light and air. I created a couple (Amira and AJ Yassine) who live in the newly renovated house. They love cooking together in the red kitchen and spend almost as much time outside on the patio as they do indoors.

    Original ENTRY DETAILS: Original Challenge 121- Out of the Box. A smartly engineered home. I designed this as if the first 30G was donated money, and the other 30G was from items donated by the community. The solar panels donated by the Energy company. The garden plot put together by the local gardening club. Counters and fridge donate by a restaurant supply company. Books and toys donate by town members, etc.
    This home has the solar panels to reduce electric bill costs, Rain Tank to help with the Garden plot and to lower water costs. Fire places to reduce heating costs. Garden plot to supplement food stores. Although there still needs to be some homey touches needed, it is a lovely home for the group of 7
    The Main living area is on the 2nd floor, to take advantage of the natural light from the many Windows. Kids can do their homework at the dining table, or at the computer desk. A toy box for the kids to play as well. Mom can watch from the living room, or while cooking. The bedrooms are on the first floor.
    REVAMPED ENTRY DETAILS- This home has been revamped utilizing eco-lifestyle and dream home decorator to revitalize this build. This home is still eco and budget concious- a Solar roof allows for the home to produce its own power, the new rain collectors capture for water use. The garden has been expanded to allow for further growing options. The inside layout has been updated, to improve a bonus living space downstairs, and a modernized upstairs living space. Enjoy the new home!!!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Question: Is it possible to take a build that never should have been submitted and make it good enough - while coming in under budget? Answer: Yes! I've always wanted a do-over of BNS99, Back to Their Roots. Nearly three years later, here it is. I moved from rustic farmhouse to more of a modern farmhouse look, partly to use the new DHD stuff. I also wanted to include as many of the Lunar New Year free items and few touches from Snowy Escape because the Chens are Chinese and it fit the "back to their roots" theme. I gutted most of the interior and moved some other walls slightly (ground floor went from 14x14 to 15x16). There's a brand new color scheme, and most of the expensive Cats and Dogs items have been replaced - it turns out modern is cheaper than country. I chose to keep the vaulted ceiling and dormers as I liked them.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Since moving out last year, Guy Orange has further developed his own style in clothing and décor. He enjoys an eco-industrial mix at home and a more artistic taste in clothing. Since becoming more independent, he has also stopped being gloomy and much more outgoing. His parents have also chilled out considerably since Guy has left. The peace and quiet have done wonders for their moods, no longer being hotheaded or consumed with work (to gain wealth). Both their styles have also relaxed as the peace and quiet at home have increased.

    This has always been my least favorite entry for the BNS challenges (it was also my first: BNS 140). Since Mr.Downey is selling we decided to change quite a bit. We updated the landscaping around the house and added more to blend in with the surrounding area. The roofing always bothered me on the original so I replaced it all and added new unique skylights to let in a little extra light and to add some texture to a plain roof. The entire color scheme has been lightened so the house doesn't feel as dark as before. The interior got a new layout and brighter colors as well. More details in the slideshow.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I chose to renovate BnS #108. It is a container development made for Settlement for Simanity. There are three units. Each unit is developed for a particular family, taking into consideration their needs and likes. I designed this before we had the Eco Living pack and thought it would be a perfect one to redo now that we have sea-can items. This project was also before we had access to the debug menu and so I have taken full advantage of that and given the property a very large landscape improvement as well. I have drastically improved the interior of each unit and painted the sea-cans to a brighter color. I have moved the playground to the back of the property, adding a garden feature in its place. This gives the property a pleasing curb appeal and is a little bit safer for the children playing. I also made sure to add the community garden that I missed on the first go around.

    It´s a Generic lot type where your sims can go to hang out, relax, read a book or play chess. Of course, they can also paint or play an instrument if they have them in their inventory and take to there.
    I´d have liked to have more budget to give stuff enough for a Park lot but I only got to add a chess table and books to read.

    #BnS151 - Summer Designer Showdown

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 July 2021

    It’s time for the Summer Designer Showdown!
    You will be given a choice of three families to design for. Each has different likes and dislikes.
    Turn this simple starter home into each family’s dream home.

    https://i.imgur.com/uEWEX9L.png?2

    You can find the lot on the gallery under either #BNS151 or Summer Designer Showdown.
    The families have already removed all of their belongings, leaving you with a mostly empty shell to work with.
    The house is smaller than the lot, so you can place it on any lot that will fit the size of your planned build.
    You can add or remove both interior and exterior walls.
    You can change the wallpaper, flooring, roofing, siding, windows, doors, and steps.
    You can raise or lower the foundation.
    You can add anything you like.
    The most important rule of this challenge is to have fun!


    THE BRIEF

    Budget: 50,000 - 150,000 depending on which family you choose.

    Smiths: 65k
    Vargases: 170k
    Larsons: 180k

    The house must have all the usual rooms, plus any special requests each family may have.

    Make sure everyone has a place to sleep.

    Remember to landscape the lot.

    1. Casey and Emily Smith: Casey works as a hospital receptionist and as such is into healthy living. Emily is active and enjoys sports and music. Their dream home includes a gym and pool. They love to prepare healthy meals together. Their favorite colors are green and blue. They love modern, contemporary styles.

    2. Ricardo and Zahra Vargas: He’s a secret agent and she’s a novelist. They need a comfortable office space or two since they both spend plenty of time at their computers. An avid reader, Zahra would love a home library. They have two children, with one on the way, so they’ll need a big yard with plenty of play options. The Vargases hate the color black. He prefers Mission style furniture, she likes a more playful, boho flare.

    3. Jamie and Pat Larson: Jamie and Pat recently became the guardians of their nieces and nephews, ranging in age from infant to teen, so they need a much larger house. They need plenty of space for the four children to pursue their various hobbies, which include basketball, video games, art, and woodworking. A crafts room would be ideal. Jamie has always wanted a rooftop observatory. Their favorite colors are blue and red. They’re not too picky about style, but both hate Gothic Farmhouse style. The four children all have different favorite colors.

    Sim Challenge

    Create the family you’re building for, or any of the three households if you’re not doing the build, and show their traits and any skills. You can pick likes and dislikes in addition to those included in the brief.

    Room Challenge

    Budget: 15k
    Build the living room for the family you choose to build for, or any of them if you’re not doing the build challenge.

    Remember to include the entirety of the hashtag #bns151 or your entry will not be judged!

    Containing a pool and a play area, the enclosed yard at the rear of the house allows the family to fully enjoy the great outdoors.

    Finally, I created a cosy area for the little Vargases to play in.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Situated in Evergreen Harbor, the Smith's home is a mixture of modern and contemporary design, with a palette of blue and green throughout. Fulfilling their dream house goals, there is both an indoor home gym and pool in the side yard. There's even a dedicated music room for Emily to practice in. The couple chose Evergreen Harbor because of its move toward healthier living, even if parts of the neighborhood are still in transition. For a health-conscious couple, it was important to have a clean environment. While there is some landscaping, the couple didn't want the outside of their home to look too "busy" and so went with minimal foliage to complement their modern and contemporary look.

Their favorite colors are blue and green, respectively, and they both love contemporary and modern décor.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I thought a traditional style house would be the most suitable for the Vargases, maybe this is where mission and boho style fit together. I used warm colors, shades of brown, yellow, orange and green on the first floor, where I tried to do mostly mission style, complete with 1-2 boho items. There are a lot more boho elements in the main bedroom, which I like best. There are many of play options in the backyard, but adults can also relax here.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Pat and Jamie Larson are taking on a challenge of raising 4 nieces and nephews, so I decided to take on the challenge of building them a house. For the exterior of the house I wanted to keep a little of the original build shape so the front porch area and nearby walls are the same, the rest of the house I tried to make visually appealing with lots of different angles. I picked the lot in Brindleton because I felt it gave it a more traditional home feel and its a nice spacious lot with great views. 4 bedrooms, 4 bath, a game room, home office, covered and uncovered porch, pond, garden, firepit, and basketball court. It has a little of everything for everybody. I was on vacation for a while and ran short of time so I could have done more but I think the house is perfect for the Larson Family and all their new interests. Maybe they can use the leftover money to take a nice vacation together as well

Luckily her husband Pat was completely on board. Together they will take on the challenge of raising 4 kids of all different ages and with 4 different interests.
    I was unsure how to get the family tree the right way in CAS so I made everyone in the prompt and the parents of the kids. This way everyone has the right relationship (aunt, uncle, etc) and the kids will look alike.
    Jenny Leone (Kids' mother, sister to Jamie)- perfectionist, cheerful, family oriented.
    Leo Leone (Kids' father, husband to Jenny)- creative, good, cheerful.
    Jamie Larson- Family Oriented, Foodie, Neat (Aspiration: Master Chef)

    I thought perfectionist and neat might be a fun twist with a house full of kids

The home has nearly a full wall of windows and doors to enjoy easy access and views to the back yard. The back yard has many places for seating and dining. The couple will be sure to enjoy some back yard parties here. The pool boasts a sunken seating area in the middle as well as a waterfall wall. The gym has sliding doors/walls that are open to enjoy the view and the breeze. There is also a vegetable garden for the couple to enjoy gardening and using fresh herbs and vegetables in their cooking.

    #BnS152 - Home Sweet Office

    The deadline for this challenge is 31 August 2021

    Your latest clients barely wait for Karl to open the door before striding past, looking sleekly sophisticated and confident in their matching suits.

    “We apologise for barging in, but we’re in a hurry, we need to be at court in an hour,” the one on the right says, impatiently smoothing down a lock of unruly hair.

    “I understand. Mr. Lau, isn’t it? What can I do for you?” You ask at his brisk nod.

    “We have a list of our needs,” the other attorney, who must be Adil Bailey, says, unfolding a sheet of paper.

    “Thank you, but I’d like to hear from you exactly what you’re looking for,” you say.

    “We’re getting married, and want to start our own law office together rather than continue to work at separate law offices. We also need to combine our households. We only have enough simoleons for one lot, Justin Lau explains.

    Mr. Bailey nods. “That’s why we want a law office with living quarters upstairs, to save on money.. The office portion needs to have at least two offices, a restroom, conference room, and waiting room. A kitchenette would be convenient but not necessary if it can’t be done.”

    “Upstairs, we’d like one or two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a great room,” Justin adds. “Keep the landscaping simple, please, we don’t have much time for yard work.”

    You nod, making notes of everything. “What’s the budget?”

    “Will 100,000 do?”

    “It should. Do you have any color or design preferences?”

    “Bold colors, with lots of wood and leather,” Mr. Lawson replies before Mr. Bailey can open his mouth.

    “The rest we leave in your very capable hands,” Mr. Bailey says.

    “Thank you for the vote of confidence. I think we can have your new office and home ready in one month,” you say, standing to shake hands.

    “Good It’ll be nice not to have to worry about a commute,” Mr. Lau says just as his phone rings. He pulls it out to answer even as he turns to leave.

    Mr. Bailey only has time for a quick wave and apologetic glance before he too is on his phone.


    THE BRIEF


    The budget is 100,000
    Lot size: 30x20
    The office space on the main level must have two offices.
    Must have a restroom (or two)
    Must include a reception and waiting area.
    Optional kitchenette.
    The house:
    At least one bedroom and bathroom.
    Must have a great room - kitchen/living/dining combination.

    Sim Challenge

    For the office part of the house, I went for a sleek modern cosmolux style to make it look more professional.
    For the residential part of the house, I decided to decorate it in MCM-style. This is so that the décor is in line with the clients’ design preference of using bold colors, with lots of wood and leather.
    To ensure a smooth visual transition between the office and residential parts of the house, I used a orange/green colour scheme throughout the house.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This office/loft combo is perfect for the professional sim(s) who is busy taking care of business with the convenience of living on the same property. Considering their busy schedule, landscaping consists of easy to manage décor, leaving wildflowers, wild lavender, and low maintenance fountains. The office half has two personal offices, reception area, bathrooms, and conference room/kitchenette. The loft has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, reading area, and BBQ area outside.
    Because of the size and orientation of the lot, I really wanted to elongate the building to better fit it. So, I decided to create a loft with the bedroom and bathroom above the office side of the building with the rest of the loft built back behind it. I also basically created a two-sided building with each end of the lot having their own entryway and décor.
    I took into consideration the clients’ desire for bold colors, and including a lot of leather and wood. Both the office space and loft area abound with color, different hues helping differentiate between the various rooms. I focused in on the loft to present more leather furniture, though both sides have plenty of wood furniture as well.

    This older brownstone rowhouse has all the charm of these vintage homes have to offer. The first floor has been converted into a large formal office building. Most of the upper floors have been converted into apartments, instead of a full home. While most are in the process of being modernized, one of the apartments is still holding the rustic charm of the past. (Please note, i have done 2 versions of this, one with just the office and their apartment decorated that i am submitting here, and then completed all the apartments, which i am not submitting here, but is in the gallery).

    This was the build I had in mind the moment I read the brief. It is a 3 story modern industrial build, with modern rustic furnishing to compliment the build. The bold colors I used were dark blues, orange, gray and black. I also used leather and a lot of different wood tones. The ground and 1st floors is the Law Firm Offices. There is an elevator\door (with stairs), on the 1st floor to the loft, which occupies the whole 2nd and 3rd floor. This door\entrance is exclusively for Justin Lau and Adil Bailey. My motivation was to establish the Law Firm, offices, more than the loft. My opinion is that the right office environment will bring clients to the firm and intern the growth of the firm. This will enable the client to furnish the loft to their desires.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I chose to spend the big bucks on a lot, giving Justin & Adil prime downtown real-estate for their Law Firm. The Office is designed with dark wood paneling on the walls and a mostly carpeted space for comfort and sound control. There are two offices, a conference room and a staff room with a kitchenette as requested. The furniture is mostly red leather but I didn't want to go too bold for a office space. I wanted the clients to feel safe and comfortable there without the distraction of a bunch of colors. The upstairs residential unit is a different story. I have designed it as more of a loft style, giving it dark hardwood floors and plastered brick walls. I used bright colors throughout the home in the furniture as well as the artwork on the walls. There are two bedrooms in the unit as well as two bathrooms. I have also given the couple a deck off the Master suite to enjoy.
