    Family Balance is such a Cool modern home, Lisa! Love the curved island in the kitchen! So cool. The interiors are all beautifully done but I have to say, my favorite place is the covered porch in the back garden. Just Gorgeous! I could sit there all afternoon, enjoying the beautiful yard and watching the kids play. :blush:<3

    Fantastic design to Family Balance and I love the roof structure, very effective. Beautiful interiors, the white kitchen looks so elegant and the master bedroom is stunning and vibrant, the mirror arrangement is a fabulous feature :)

    Hello everyone! Some of you know me and my beloved kitty Hazel have both not been well. We are both healing nicely now and I even got the chance to play the sims a bit the last couple of days YAY! This build is one I have made for the Quality Control Challenge. It's for a burglar named "Fast Finger Freddy" who wanted a small home that was "quirky" where he had a secret room to store all his stolen goods.

    Thieves Hideaway
    You can download it HERE
    More Photo's HERE

    This is my Sim version of Freddy And you can find him HERE if you want a clumsy mischievous kleptomaniac in your game :D

    The exterior design of Thieves Hideaway looks great! :) The observatory on the roofing so that he can spy on other sims looks great! The bushy plants and stones around them in the front area of the home, the stepping stones front pathway, and the stones around the tree look great! The borders on your photos add a great look to the photos! Very nice eat in kitchen. The black and white colour scheme here and through the rooms of the home looks great. The closed blinds in the rooms suits well the build type. Very nice living room. The two colours of the seating is a nice touvh. Freddy will enjoy relaxing on the seating watching programs on his stolen tv! The plants are nice touches of green in the room. It is great that that there is a built in closet in the bedroom. The secret room for the stolen stash looks great! The stone wall texture adds to the look of the room. His stolen items look great there! The ideas that you used for your build are great!
    The Wanted poster for Freddy looks great! :) His cap, striped top and black gloves is a great outfit for him to wear!

    @lisa17ann, Lisa... I am so sorry to hear that you and your little kitty haven't been feeling well. :frowning: It's good to know that you're on your way to feeling better now. Both of you! :blush:
    Both Fast Freddy and his Hideaway are Fabulous! Love his look of innocence on the "wanted" poster, lol! :p Pretty nice 'digs' to hide out in too. Love the giant telescope up top, to keep an eye out for the cops. :D
    Hope both you and Hazel feel back to yourselves soon, Lisa! :blush:<3

    Thank as always for stoping by @masajo and for your kind comments on my hideaway home! It was a fun fast build to do! My next one isn't going to be little at all I hope it won't take me weeks to get done :D I hope your doing well :)

    And, thanks to you as well @WrathofCath for stopping by and saying such nice things about my hideaway and Freddy! I kind of like him and his overly large eyes! lol thank you so much for your well wishes! My Hazel kitty is fully healed now but will have to go in about ever 6 weeks to check that her scent glands aren't blocked. They can unblock them if it's caught early and hopefully it won't happen a third time! It's horrible seeing your pets unwell! I hope you are doing well!

    Happy Simming and Building to you both! I promise to stop by your showcases soon and catch up! I'm so behind on my QC judging and after being ill for so long I'm really out of the loop and can't wait to catch up with what you two talents have been building!

    Awww thank you @yanti68 I'm so glad it made you smile! :) I admit I had fun building this silly little house! My next build won't be so little but, I'm sure Freddy would love to get in to it to add some pricey items to his secret stash room :D

    I have quite a few builds in the works more then 5 I think lol it's just finding time in between my judging duties and everything that's going on with real life at the moment. Hopefully things will calm down in rl and I'll be able to build and play more!

    I need to find time to check out everyone else's wonderful builds! I'm so far behind :(

    The Royals Retreat is fantastic! I can believe it took you a month to complete. There are so many beautiful details! I especially love the mazes on either side of the main house and the fountains in front. Exceptional work! :smiley:

    Thank you for your very kind and detailed review of my build @rosemow I always appreciate the time you take to comment and make everyone feel special :) I hope your having a lovely day!

    Hello @StSciurus I hope your doing well? Thank you for your wonderful and kind comments on my build :) I wasn't working on it for a month strait (in terms of time it prolly only took about a week) I just had a month to get it done which was very helpfully as I'm very busy lately judging other peoples lovely builds on the other two QC comps. SO I don't have much time to build my self or play the game recently. Plus My poor fur babies have both had health issues lately so my time to Sim is limited indeed! I am so happy to hear you feel its full of details as I did try very hard in my limited time to make sure it had a grand a royal feeling to it! The mazes were a bit of fun to do I have to admit and I like them my self haha! Happy Simming to you and I hope I get time to catch up on showcase soon! it's been far to long :(

    The Royals Retreat is such a grand and gorgeous manor build! :smiley::smiley:
    I really love your architecture, so complex! I really love the shape of this build. Fabulous wall pattern too! I love that you added two tower turrets above the roofing. Very creative roofing work too, I also love the dormers. I also like the covered driveway buildings! Your landscaping is so very fabulous! I love that you added two hedge mazes on each side. I really love the trellis you did. The fountains out front is so beautiful! I also love the patio, especially the pool. The use of enlarged toy rubber ducks as a flotation device is such a fabulous idea, gonna borrow that on my build. ;) And your interior, so very gorgeous and luxurious! I really love each of the furnishing of the build! The MOOing and the decorating are so very creative! It also has everything a legacy family really needs!
    I really love it! I already added this to my faves! :smiley:

    Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind words @yanti68 and @RyeCris16 It's nice to see you back and building as well @RyeCris16 I will try and stop by everyone else's threads soon.

    Apparently photobucket is making everyone pay now to share their photos with a third party. I'm not doing that haha! So I can no longer see any of my own pictures I have put on this thread or any other for that matter. I'm not sure if anyone else can or if it's happening to them? But, that's a lot pf Photo's to download from photobucket and re-upload to another photo sharing site to "fix" the issues. So I might be deleting this thread and starting from scratch. *looks really annoyed*

    Any who, just so everyone knows I have a lot going on in my life the next few months and won't be involved as much on the forums but, I will be popping in from time to time! Happy Simming and building Everyone :)

    Thank you @rosemow it seems so shady that they would change like that knowing how it would mess up a lot of people. And, i can see it's effected a lot of ppl here as well. I'm slowly starting at the front of my thread and working my way back. :( I saved the bare min of photos as it was taking forever with the amount of popup adds on Photobucket now. Thanks for the info and for your well wishes :) Happy Simming to you!
