    Apologies for the delay, real life interfered unexpectedly. But here's December's challenge.

    Home for Winterfest
    Sims 4 | #BnS156


    A knock on your door draws youor attention away from the window, where you are watching the first snow of the season and hoping no one is stuck out there in the cold, without any shelter. “COme in,” you call, turning.
    The older couple who enters holding hands looks tired, worried and hopeful all at once. The man speaks up first. “Hello, I’m Thor DeWinter, and this is my wife, Neva. We’re not used to asking for help, but in this case, I’m afraid we have to,” he says.
    “Of course. How can I help?”
    He glances at Neva, who squeezes his hand and nods encouragingly.
    “We just got custody of our six grandchildren when their parents died unexpectedly.”
    “We love having them all over to visit,” Neva interjects. “Please don’t get us wrong, we’re happy to do what we can to raise them.”
    “It’s just that our two-bedroom condo wasn’t meant for a family of eight. There are no other children in our building, and little to keep them occupied once watching TV and reading becomes boring,” Thor continues.
    “I understand. What do you need?”
    “A larger house. One with room for everyone. We couldn’t eat Harvestfest together in the apartment. If we stay until Winterfest, the tree will be in the dining room and the presents in the living room,” Thor replies. “We’d like at least three bedrooms, as many as five if possible, so the two oldest, Mazin and Gale, can have their own space. A dining room large enough to seat eight would be ideal. We’ll need at least three bathrooms to cut down on wait times.”
    “We don’t ask for much, just to get out of the apartment so our neighbors will stop complaining about the noise,” Neva adds. “Oh, I’d love a little garden. I gave up gardening as a career, but I like to keep my hand in.”
    “I think we can handle that,” you say, feeling for this obviously loving if struggling family and wanting to help any way you can.

    The brief:
    Budget: $200,000
    The house needs three to five bedrooms
    At least three bathrooms
    A dining room large enough to seat eight..
    A living room and kitchen.
    A small garden for Neva.
    Landscaping.
    Optional, if you have Seasons: Include at least one screenshot of the house decorated for Winterfest in winter.

    Room challenge: Design the DeWinters’ new dining room. Holiday decorations optional. Budget: 12,000


    Sim Challenge: No Sim Challenge this time. Download the DeWinter family here. You can edit their outfits if you like.

    Remember to include the entirely of the hashtag #bns156 or your entries will not be judged! The deadline for this challenge is Friday, Decemeber 31st, no later than 23:59:59 EST/New York time.

    @BuildnShare the brief says to build a house.

    Do we actually specifically need to build a house?

    Preferably, yes. What did you have in mind?

    Hi @BuildnShare :)! I was thinking about doing the room challenge this time, as well as the lot challenge. Should I make a different dining room for the room challenge or keep the one I made for the house. I still have to playtest/check things over in the house.

    Use the same dining room for both. :)
