    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.

    Ok that's what I thought I just wanted to make sure before i picked a lot haha! Thank You :)

    ENTRY DETAILS:Sandalio Villalobos and Selene Moon needed a home away from their families who don't approve of a werewolf and a vampire loving each other. So they've run off to a quiet place in the woods . Sandalio loves all the finer things so this home has a maximalist vibe with hot springs, bbq, party tables, wolf den and a basement that only a vampire and werewolf could love. They wantchildren so there's a child and a teen room as well.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM yes, please

    “Hello,” your latest client says, smoothing his neatly pressed business suit. “I”m Thomas Renteria of Community Living. I just bought up a new lot and I’d like you to design and build the houses I have in mind for it,”
    You like that he gets right to the point, but one word catches your attention. “Houses? Plural?”
    “Yes. Building one house on a large lot is so inefficient when there are so many homeless sims out there, don’t you think?” Mr. Renteria asks.
    “Yes, I suppose so. Are we talking about apartment buildings then?”
    “Oh, no, just a fourplex - four attached homes, each with their own separate entrance, driveway, and yards.”
    You listen closely, taking notes. “Do you have a particular style in mind?”
    “No, I’m leaving that up to you. Each unit will have an open floor plan with a combined kitchen, living and dining room and 3 bedrooms upstairs.”
    “And should all units be identical?” you ask.
    Mr. Renteria shakes his head. “I would prefer that each be individual, though with some common design and layout elements. Same style, different colors. Maybe one has two couches while another has a sectional sofa, for example.”
    “I understand. It will be tight, but I think we can finish this project on time,” you say.
    Mr. Renteria smiles, relaxing. “Good. I already have buyers lined up for the first four units.”

    The brief:
    The budget: $250,000 (Mr. Renteria owns the lot, so lot cost is not included.)
    Lot size: 40x30 or larger.
    Build a fourplex. Units can be arranged anyway you like - all in a line, two pairs facing opposite directions, or four separate units spread across the lot.
    Each must have a separate entrance, driveway, and yard.
    Each unit needs an open floor plan living space.
    Include three bedrooms and at least one bath.
    Landscape.

    The Sim Challenge:
    Create a family to live in one of the four units you’ve built for them. You can pick their traits, aspirations, likes, dislikes, etc. Show all of their outfits. Show them enjoying their new home.

    The room challenge: Build the great room of one of the four units. Budget: 15,000


    Remember to include the hashtag #bns171 with your build or it will not be judged! Entries are due by Friday, March 31st, 2023, 23:5:59 New York Time/EST.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Our fourplex - four attached homes, each with their own separate entrance, driveway, and yard. Is located in Del Sol Valley on a 50 x 40 lot called Vacuous Green. ( This was the perfect lot ( for me ) because of the driveways built into the sidewalk. outside of the lots boundaries ) Each unit has an open floor plan with a combined kitchen, living and dining room on the main floor and 3 bedrooms upstairs. The 2 end units have an extra Family room on the main floor & an ensuite bathroom in the Master Bedroom. Along with a separate washer & dryer. The 2 middle units have 1 half bath downstairs and 1 full bath upstairs. The 2 middle units have mirrored floor plans. As do the 2 end units- give & take some footage for the Kitchen & family room. I had fun with this Challenge- It was a-lot. I usually like clutter - I had to hold myself back . I feel this one built itself. I started it and it took off.. Thank you - I was not going to approach this one. But I did and am glad- It was Fun..

    So... I'm pretty sure I went overboard when making my townhouses and now I'm worried I have a lot of space to fill. I still have to play around with the layout inside, but I just want to check something beforehand. When you say 3 bedrooms, I'm trying to figure out how flexible this could be. Do you mean at least 3 bedrooms, just like the bathrooms, or exactly three? Could it be two bedrooms and one room that's being used as an office or some such? Could it be 3 bedrooms and some extra other rooms?

    Yes, having one be an office is fine. Or even a playroom or exercise room. And if your budget will cover extra rooms, thats fine too.
