    ENTRY DETAILS: I decided to make my clothing store look like an old department store. It is decorated with a glamourous vintage style, using plenty of gold and white with many Christmas decorations displayed inside and outdoors as well. There is parking in the back but I have added an underground parking garage for those sims who don't want to deal with the cold weather. There is a security office, as well as an owners office in case there are some long nights at the store. When you enter the store there is a large Christmas tree surrounded by gifts that people have donated for those less fortunate. When you head up to the second level there is a place to get your picture taken with Santa/Father Winter. This floor is also where you will find children's and men's clothing as well. The third floor is exclusive to women's fashion. Each floor has small change rooms to try on an outfit you may be interested in buying.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM Sure!
    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: I made the Handicapped parking sign and elevator art myself

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Slideshow for BNS168 Winterfest Grocery

    ENTRY DETAILS: I made my grocery store like the modern self contained small ones near where I live and not a big chain store. I tried to provide a range of things that would be helpful to gameplay eg. simple living ingredients, preprepared meals and high skill level cooking / baking items. Stacking the shelves and placing the items took forever. I wish Grocery stores were their own type of lot with shopping trolleys and sims able to buy multiple things in a shop.

    It’s time for another designer showdown and you’re going to have to bring your creativity and fix-it skills for this one! This floorplan was created by a very bad architect. It’s your job to turn it into a liveable house.
    osYPbuk.png
    Keep the exterior walls intact. You can delete, add or move any of the interior walls. Add doors, windows, porches, roofs, and columns anywhere you like. You can change the foundation height.
    The shell can be found on the gallery under #winter23, #winterdesignershowdown23 or #bns169

    The brief:
    Budget: $70,000
    This house needs at least 2 bedrooms and one bath.
    Include a kitchen, living room and dining room.
    You may add a basement.
    Remember to landscape.

    Sims Challenge: None this time.
    Room Challenge: None this time

    Remember to include the hashtag #bns169 with your build or it will not be judged! Entries are due by Tuesday, January 31st , 23:5:59 New York Time/EST.

    Can we change the height of the walls? Thanks!

    **TIP** to get a floor across the entire house, stretch one or both of the rooms that have floors across the entire house. If you wanted to keep any of the original walls, you can always add them back. :D
