    Two questions:

    1. Is the exterior allowed to be white?
    2. What counts as a fully stocked bookcase? Is it any bookcase that's not just a stack of books (eg. the "Vintage Books" item)?

    @ForeverTuesday Elspeth has some troubling memories of growing up in the off-white house that she does not want to relive every time she sees her house.

    I'm going to say no, the color would be too close.
    Hmm, this rule is from before the Vintage books stack was turned into a bookcase. I always imagined the bookcase should contain a selection of basic skill books as well as books to read for fun.

    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 :)

    Question: Does the bicycle from University/Eco Living count as workout equipment? I believe sims gain the fitness skill when they ride it if I'm remembering correctly.

    If memory serves @AfterMidnight, I think they were allowed in the last Hawthorne build, but I am not the one who can answer that question. I am interested what @BuildnShare says also.

    Question: I’m building on a $1500 lot and my build is $18,000 on the gallery. But when I place it, the lot price is over $20,000. I notice this happens for other people’s builds too. So their builds are overpriced once you place the lot. How are we supposed to handle this? Is it just the lot price plus gallery price and we don’t have to worry how it changes when you place the lot? I feel like this must be a glitch because it doesn’t make sense to me why this happens.

    Following up on this, I tried a few combos of less-expensive bookshelves (Botanical Bookends, Intellectual Illusion Wall-Mounted Bookshelves, Edgier Laddercase, and Media Marathoner All-on-the-Wall), and all of them had the same "for fun" books, but no skill books. Is there a bookcase that comes with skill books? If not, should I swap some out?

    .Maybe not. You can swap some or just add skill books.

    Thanks! I'll do that. I have the rest of my build pretty much finished and play-tested. :)
