    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

    Can the library be in the spare bedroom, or does it have to be a second bedroom and a library?

    Can the library be in the spare bedroom, or does it have to be a second bedroom and a library?

    You can do it either way.

    ENTRY DETAILS: A fun and vibrant study, reflecting a love for animals. I chose to make the reading chairs the focus of the room, while still having a small desk space for computer use. The large bookshelf has plenty of room for textbooks, and there's also the polar bear bookends for lighter material. The white and neon colors pop against the more traditional dark wood paneling and floors.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure.

    personality in mind while building (adding lots of books, and a few spots for his dog to relax and exercise).
    I also added the walkway on the side of the house to almost blend in with the rest of the island and to add
    something new and festive with the lights and all the greenery.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This beautiful home is deceptively simple looking.. However it is not as simple. It's boxy shape hides truly magnificent design and technology, allowing for maximum enjoyment of the natural world around it. the glass and steel/wood structure allows for maximum views of the island, while providing structural support, and blending into the environment. In built blinds allow for privacy if needed. The walls can lift to create an open indoor outdoor living space. Custom laid floors and bright colors take into consideration the needs of our client.

    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.)

    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: The construction is island-inspired, while the furnishings are more modern. Plenty of windows provide fresh air and views of the surrounding ocean. The second bedroom is currently a basic guest room/storage space, but is easily large enough to be converted into a room for one or two children.
