    @BuildnShare, thanks very much! I am going to try hard to make it work!! (I figured I just would never make the budget and was up to nearly $100K.)

    ENTRY DETAILS: For the Winter Designer Showdown I have taken the empty shell of a house and turned it into a mid-Century modern family home. I added a roof and extended it to create a carport addition. I also added platforms throughout the house, giving the bedrooms and kitchen shorter wall space. This created a unique view into the dining room from the kitchen when I added a half wall divider. With the extra money allotted I was able to give the family so many wonderful outdoor activities to enjoy, which included a pool. Perfect for Oasis Springs!

    *timidly waves* I'm new here (well been here for a long time but never did any challenges before) and was looking for something new to focus on and this buildnshare came at just the right time for me (never knew it existed before a few days ago!). Just wanted to let you know that you should probably update the first message with the current challenge in it since it still reflects the $50k budget which is what I went off of haha

    I came here to double check the rules before I finalized my entry and such and then was looking at past entries and saw this update about the budget. Don't worry, it's a HAPPY surprise haha I'm excited to add a few items to my build (like a television lol). Anyways, looking forward to seeing everyone's entries! <3

    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Isle of Volpe Park lot 50×40 in Henford-on-Bagley

    NEW LOT LINK: https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/85A4271FA1A311ED87C1A15490F1F0B0?category=all&searchtype=item_name&sortby=newest&time=all&searchquery=&max=50&maxis=false

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=sannajopink&set=a.123603190624911

    ENTRY DETAILS: My very first entry for this official Build and Share challenge.This lovely cottage was created with room for a growing family--including a large master bedroom, homey living room/kitchen/dining nook and a fully landscaped yard for outdoor fun and family time as well. I hope your sims enjoy living here! Please note: Includes extensive use of debug, unlocks, and MOO, so please have these activated before placing the lot

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Gently <3

    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: I did not use downloaded CC in the lot but did use images from the gallery for artwork on the walls--that said, I have created two versions of the lot--one with these various artworks and one without because I couldn't provide a link to it as lots with CC do not show up in the gallery. I'd prefer the lot with the images be used to enter and that's what I made my screenshots with, but provide the link to the "no cc" lot just in case =)

    Artwork from the gallery was used from these artists: shanii22, madradmandee, AlJay2000, hootofthesims, tiya33, & MrsBarbiex3

    SPACE FOR PICTURES: I'm not sure how to attach pictures here to be honest--I will add two links though!

    @SannaJo_Pink welcome to the BuildnShare thread and thanks for using my artwork in your entry :) I'm not sure about the other artists work that you used, but mine should still show up as not having custom content and you should be able to get a gallery link with it still in your build.

    Ah thank you AlJay for your wonderful contributions to making all of my Sims homes so lovely! I love all of your art! I did some testing and it's not all of the artwork, but only some of it. That said, I didn't have time to figure out which was which before the end of the contest as I'd been down and out with Covid the last two weeks! Thank you for letting me know! I intend to test all of it to find artists like you who make works I can use without the CC symbol preventing it showing up in the gallery! <3

    The young couple who enters your office looks both nervous and determined somehow. You do your best to set them at ease with a friendly smile. “Cone in, sit down,” you say.
    “Thank you. I’m Sandalio Villalobos and this is my fiancee Selene Moon,” the man says in a deep voice. He sits, angling his body to block the sunlight falling through the window. Only once the other chair is in shadow does Selene sit, dodging the spill of sunlight on the floor.
    “What can i do for you?” you ask.
    Selene holds your gaze. “I suppose we should tell you right now, if you agree to help us, you might find yourself unpopular with both Werewolves and Vampires. Neither of our families approve of our relationship or our plan to marry. They don’t understand our love.”
    “Or believe it’s real.” A growl underlies Sandalio’s words.
    Selene squeezes his hand. “Calm down, you can’t go into a fury here,” she whispers.
    “I’ll try.” He looks back at you. “If you’d rather not build us a home, we understand.”
    “Oh, I’m willing to help, don’t worry. What did you have in mind?”
    “Three bedrooms in case we have guests or decide to expand our family someday and a basement,” Selene says.
    “I would like a den with big windows so I can see the outdoors,” Sandalio adds.
    “A man-cave. Or should that be wolf-cave?” Selene smiles at him.
    You nod, making notes. Building a house to meet the needs of two very different clients will be a challenge. Maybe there’s a reason their love is forbidden? But it’s not your place to judge. “Do you have any other requirements?”
    “Just don’t make it shabby. Please. I don’t know where that idea came from,” Sandalio says.
    “And it can’t be in Forgotten Hollow or Moonwood Mill. We both want plenty of trees for privacy,” Selene adds.
    “All right. This should all take about a month. May I ask where you’re staying in the meantime?”
    “With friends. Thank you for your concern,” Sandalio replies.
    You nod and see them out, already planning their home.

    The brief:
    Budget:125,000
    The house should have three bedrooms and at least one bath.
    Include a den for Sandalio.
    Build a basement that would suit both a werewolf and a vampire.
    Landscaping should include plenty of trees to screen the house from view.

    The sim challenge:
    Create Sandalio Villalobos and Selene Moon. Pick their traits, preferences and aspirations. Remember to screenshot all their outfits. Show them enjoying their new home. Note: Don’t worry if you don’t have the packs, just use your imagination. CC is allowed.

    The room challenge: Create Sandalio and Selene’s basement. Budget: 20,000

    Remember to include the hashtag #bns170 with your build or it will not be judged! Entries are due by Tuesday, February 28th, 23:5:59 New York Time/EST.

    The minimum is three. So if you think the budget can fit more, go for it.

    Hello I was wondering if there is a lot size we are meant to use? Or did I miss that somewhere in the brief?

    Unless specified in the brief, you can use whatever lot size you want as long as you have enough space for all requirements.
