House: CHRIS Cottage

Bathrooms: 1
Furnished Price: $121,183
Lot Size: 30x40
Items: WA, Amb, LN, Generations, Pets, Showtime. No SPs and no Store Content.

Christopher Steel is new to Sunset Valley, but not actually by choice. He is here on a special assignment to set up the Canadian Headquarters for Reclusive Investigation Service, but without alerting the public on the HQ's location. In an effort to camouflage the extensive construction work happening underground, Chris hires an army of landscapers to turn his lot into the ultimate retreat for an outdoor-loving fisherman, since that's what he tells all his neighbours is how he spends his free-time. The pond is well-stocked with exotic fish, there is a hot tub to soak away the ache in his shoulders from "fishing" all day, and a large garden for growing all the best organic fish bait any dedicated fisherman could ever use. The abundant flower beds perfectly highlight the Victorian architecture of his little blue house.

Renovation of the interior if his house provides the excuse for the large number of burly construction people walking around, the loads of lumber arriving almost daily, and the vast array of construction tools dotting the back yard. It is now a lovely reflection of the exterior Victorian architecture and includes all the modern amenities any single, working man needs.

The garden shed looks like any ordinary garden shed but it pays host to the hints of another life, the life of secrecy and questioning that makes up Chris' real life. Chris manages to scrounge through garbage cans at night to collect enough items to represent a childhood and life filled with hobbies. These items are arranged inside the garden shed in an attempt to make them look well-loved and, well, his. The sink is there so he can wash up after a long day of gardening, and to rinse off any fish he catches.

 





What about the tomb?, you say. Well, if we told you about that we'd have to, well, you know.  ;)  Feel free to come on over and try it for yourself. We dare you!

On Skyborough Boulevard, there are ordinary people living ordinary lives -- or are they?



One house on this street has recently undergone some changes.   The resident, a quiet man who enjoys fishing & cooking, has workers going to and fro as they build up around his home.  First a new fence, then a pond, then the shed.  Is he really just sprucing up his property or are there dark secrets hiding behind that thin-lipped smile?



Maybe it's just his secret love of the color lime but some of his neighbors have noticed there was something off about Mr. Christopher Steel.  His faint mumblings about dynasties.  Dark shadows sometimes moving about his property.  And why does he spend so much time in that new fishing shed? Why is there a gun chest and what could he possibly be doing in there?

All entries are in! I will be putting up the poll as soon as I get back from my Baby Class at the library this morning. It is highly recommended that you download these lots and try the tombs out before voting, but of course it's not necessary - just a lot more fun! :D

Building Contests 2012-Long, July-August: Mr. Most Desirable … Agent? 




Your Task:
In Sunset Valley lives a man well-known to the members of Carl and Pam’s Sims 3 Forum: Mr. Most Desirable Dynasty Spouse, AKA Christopher Steel. New to town, Chris must settle in and become a positive citizen, friend, and neighbor, all without giving up his biggest secret! To curious passers-by, Chris explains the major landscaping remodel and interior renovation as a chance to create a pond for fishing and showcase the small blue Victorian, but it’s all a cover for the intricate secret basement being built as his home office and meeting place for his secret agent co-workers.

Your task, as a team, is to (1) landscape Chris’ home lot without changing the exterior of the house in any way, and (2) create a basement office and meeting space with a hidden access staircase outside the house (can’t have secret agents coming to the front door at all hours of the day and night!) – how you hide the staircase is up to you. You may also renovate the interior of Chris’ house if you want to. You may designate tasks between team members as you see fit just remember those that don’t have WA will need to complete their tasks first so that WA buydebug tomb pieces can be used, if desired, without being replaced.


Specifications:
  • Minimum Number of Bed Spaces: 2 (evict Chris and build from Edit Town)
  • Budget: add up to $100,000 to the lot value
  • Lot Size: work on Chris’ original lot
  • Other: Landscaping – pond, hidden access to the basement. Basement – home office space, meeting room, bathroom.

Optional Specifications:
  • Use WA tomb markers to create a “tomb” for down-loaders to explore.
  • Renovation of the house interior.

Building Contest 2012-Long, July-August: Mr. Most Desirable … Agent? - July 4, 2012 - August 28, 2012
    Team SPITSORE - Decima, Ricalynn and Schipperke!

Congratulations Team SPITSORE! Steel's Private Investigation Team will definitely be great at Stamping Out Rottenness Everywhere from the base in this great entry! You can see SPITSORE's Entry here and download it here.



Team SPITSORE's Comment:

"Decima: First off we'd like to thank everyone who voted for us!  I was in charge of landscaping and the fishing hut and I bossed the other two around a little bit  .   ;D
Schipperke: I never thought you were bossy!
Rica: It was more like you just made sure we got everything done. 
Decima: Well our personalities all worked well with each others. I think it was the fact that we all get along so well that made all the difference, I couldn't have chosen better team mates.
Schipperke: To be honest, I never expected to win a building contest and I think the only reason I did was being partnered with these two.  I had the easiest part which was the inside and didn't seem like an important part of the renovation.
Rica: Which is nonsense because she was the one who made sure Chris's touch was all over the inside of the house.  She also gave me the idea for how to write up the entry post.   Not to mention she came up with half of our name while Decima did the other half.  I just put glue between SPIT & SORE to make it SPITSORE.
Decima: I had the least expansions so I got to go first and then pass the baton.  Rica was last with the tomb.
Rica: Which was frightening as I had to learn how to do it and hope I did it right without embarrassing my teammates.   I was constantly sending them messages with pictures and asking what they thought.   Even though I filled out the basement, without these two it probably wouldn't have been so detailed.
Decima: You didn't embarrass anyone! I like how we all chipped in with ideas and helped each other out.
Schipperke: We shared everything, even the cold germs.  ::) "

Thank you again to everyone who voted for our build.   I thought it was great how everyone had different ideas of how to make this work.

I think the hardest part for me was choosing only 10 screenshots.
