Driad's Home
« on: July 16, 2012, 03:16:36 PM »
With the upcoming Expansion Pack featuring fairies (among other strange and amazing creatures), I thought I'd create a house that would be perfect for fairies, driads and those who feel they are One with Nature. Using a mushroom as my inspiration, I managed to come up with this house. I hope you like it as much as I liked creating it. It does not contain any cc, but does have a large amount of store items, which I'll list.

Size: 40x40
Cost - Furnished: §155,067
Cost - Unfurnished: §77,325

Bedrooms: 1 master, 1 double child's room with a bunk bed and one nursery.
1 bathroom
1 central living room
Large kitchen and dining
Study
Large yard with pond (and fish spawners)

This is amazing! I would love to download it myself except for my unfortunate lack of store items.
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

This is actually breathtaking! :o I have bits and pieces of the Store Content, but probably so much would be replaced and I don't think I'd do a great job of trying to regain the beauty! So lovely though, wish I had these skills. :)

Thank you. Unfortunately there isn't (yet) any fairy-type items in the base game or expansions. Not until Supernatural comes out. So I've had to resort to store content to make it look authentic. This means that if people don't have all the items, they'll be replaced, which might take away from the experience a bit. It's sad, but when Supernatural comes out I plan on making some more fairy-type houses.

Of all the houses I've seen here, this is the one I most want.  I'll have to check my store stuff to get an idea of how similar it would look after downloading.

Neashaleigh, when you check the price, can you also include the lot size?  Thanks.

Of course :) I totally forgot about those when I was uploading it. I'll do that this morning.

I have to commend you, Neashaleigh, on putting in all that effort to look up, list, and include links for all the Store Items in this build. Thank you for the effort!

It's a delightful and unique house, thank-you for sharing.

Thank you :D It took me ages this morning to compile that list. I hope it makes it easier for people... especially as I'm aware that there is so much store stuff in this house.

I guess I'm a store junkie :P

I'm so glad you are going to do more fairy-related stuff once the EP comes out. I was going to ask, but I didn't want to be pushy! Thanks for all your hard work and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Wow ! This is absolutely stunning. The decor is just so perfect. You are such a super builder. I really can't wait for fall to get those new Expansions . These type of buildings are going to be so perfect. Thanks for sharing !  :)

I have actually placed this house and walked around in it.  How do you describe perfection?  I just kept ooohing and aaaahing and giggling like a girl because it is so wondrous!  I truly expected the dryad who lives here to come peeping out at me wondering what I was doing walking around in her house!
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

I'm super impressed with how you made all the rooms so well propotioned, that's something I always think is hard to do. It deffinately makes me want to play a family in it.

Thanks :)

With this house I tried to keep a flow happening. Keeping in mind the shape of a mushroom, I wanted to stay away from sharp angles and straight sides as much as possible. I needed to keep the rooms in contour with the house.

Getting the size of a room right can be a challenge. I think most people have a tendency to make them too large. Sometimes using the grid can help keep things in proportion, and remembering what size certain items of furniture is. Placing the furniture before you place the walls can also sometimes help, but I think the best thing that helps is practice :)

This is super-cute. Where did you get the wall-hangings/curtains? They've got pink flowers, hang over the windows, and drape very prettily, but I don't recognise them and can't find them in the store...

It's called "Festoon to the Honeymoon" and can be found at the store here.

Wow!!! This is beautiful, creative, breathtaking, thrilling, whimsical, perfect, wondrous, and many many more adjectives that elude me just now. I love this. I squealed with delight when I saw the shorter mushroom caps on either side of the main 'cap.' So cute and clever! Unfortunately, I don't have most of those store items but I might need to download this and just work with the items I do have.

Yeah sorry about all the store content, but to get it the way I wanted it to look, that was my only option. I hope it still looks ok for you without it. Let me know :)
