Your Task:
For many years now a man we call Hunter House has served many a town to keep the native populations of Llamas under control and safe from the predators. Hunter is now old enough to retire from the job, however he wants something very special to retire to. The saying that you can take the man out of the job but can't take the job out of the man is a very fitting scenario for Hunter, not once has he regretted his career choice and he can't bare to leave! He is an outdoors enthusiast and loves all things to do with it. As a reward for many years of dedicated service the SimCity is spending some of it's budget on his retirement home.

With Hunter comes his retired Wife, Katherine. A retired writer, she loves to write in an area of beauty and nature. She also tends to have a bit of a green-thumb, despite her fingers mostly being attached to a pen! If possible they would also like to have a guest room for relatives to come and stay with them, although only a small room capable of sleeping two sims. If more come they can sleep outside in tents and truly be with nature! (Hunter and Katherine are attached at the bottom of this post, they should contain Base Game Content Only. THey should also have the correct amount of Funds to purchase your entry should you wish to use them in photographs.)

When we at Neashaleigh Enterprises received the contract to build this lodge for a well respected, admired and loved couple in the town, we felt that nothing would suit them more than a beautiful log cabin styled house. Built on a gorgeous piece of land, we utilised the natural beauty of the place and created a work of art. We wanted to make the House family feel at home, so we made sure that the interior colour scheme reflected their favourites. This simple, yet elegent, house will sure to please Hunter and Katherine. With a small amount of effort and some extra cash, Hunter could easily build an extention to the house if they plan to have regular guests or family come to stay.

Size: 30x30
Cost Furnished: §61,981
Cost Unfurnished: §38,407
Number of bedrooms: 1

NAME: OUTDOOR HAVEN
Size: 40x40
Cost Furnished: §64,900
Number of bedrooms: 2
Number of bathrooms: 2
Expansion packs used: WA, Pets
Stuff Packs Used: HELS (for just one item: large aquarium)

To all whom it may concern: The town council hereby attaches photos of a propsed residence for retiring Llama Herder Hunter House.  Whereas Mr. House has expressed a love of fishing and desire to be close to nature; whereas Mrs. Katharine House requires a quiet place to continue her writing; whereas the couple has stated they would like to have relatives come to stay; and whereas the Town Council has only 65,000 simoleons to spare, we hereby suggest the following residence at 5 Spruce Street, Hidden Springs.

The house is situated on a large, well-stocked pond, with a spacious and sunny wraparound deck that juts out over the water, and beautiful landscaping all around the lot.  An empty shed in the back will provide a great space for a loner to get away from it all, or to set up an inventing table or scultpting station if he so desires.   There is also a small garden next to the shed, with room to expand.  The house interior has two bedrooms and two bathrooms; a feminine writing study with computer and bookshelf; a kitchen with juice bar and breakfast counter; and a living room with a fireplace, large bookshelves, a big screen TV and a chess table. 

(Technical note:  When I realized I was using almost all base game, Pets and WA stuff, I decided to try keep this to just those EPs (plus HELS for the aquarium), but you may find that the game thinks you need Ambitions.  That's just because I used a terrain paint that was from that EP before I realized it.  I thought I erased it all, but it looks like the sims3pack still thinks you need it.  It is 100% not required.)

Price Furnished: $64,214
Price Unfurnished: $40,270
Content Used: EPs up to Pets, no Stuff Packs
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom.

The Riverview City Council have provided Hunter and Katherine with this charming cottage to ease their retirement. It was tastefully designed to take advantage of the stunning vistas this property offers. Each room in the cottage has views of the river, hills, or both.

There is ample space for their hobbies, and Katherine's study offers her views of both her vegetable and flower gardens. Off her office, there is a covered portico with table, so she can write outdoors with her laptop even in rainy weather. There is a serene, stocked pond for Hunter to fish in, while the river and its abundant fishing opportunities is only steps away.

The cottage offers one level living, perfect for those entering their golden years. A loft area provides extra sleeping accommodation for guests. The bathroom has a laundry area, and there is a clothesline tucked around the side of the house.

We are sure the happy couple will love their new home!

Congratulations intl_incident! New to the Forum and bringing great building talent, welcome and congratulations! You can see intl_incident's Entry here and download it here.



intl_incident's Comment:

"Wow! Thanks so much to everyone who voted for my house.  What a wonderful surprise, especially given how creative and fun everyone else's entries were.  My inspiration for the house came from the vacations I used to take as a child, a lot of which were to cabin-type locations in the northern part of the US.  I love the style of rough-hewn wooden walls with thick pillars and beams on the roofs, and I wanted to try to recreate that in the contest house.  I also love water and bridges and decks, and really wish I could have a pond or a pool like the one in my build!  I may not be a fan of fishing like Hunter, but just sitting out on the deck and listening to the fountain would be great. Thanks again to everyone who voted and for those who ran the contest, and congratulations to everyone else for such fantastic houses."

Congratulations intl_incident!  :D This Contest is now open for comments!
