    #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.

    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:
    In addition to the usual bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, the Golds want the following:

    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.

    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.

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.

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.”

Through the kindness of strangers, they're finally settled into their tiny home in Willow Creek. 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.

    ENTRY DETAILS: For this challenge I chose to use the orange colored swatch to create a large luxury two story family log home decorated for fall. I used the orange color scheme throughout the home in the wood on the floors, beams, doors, and as an accent color in each room. 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.
