I still remember that little beach house/cottage you put up about a month ago :)  It's exciting seeing how many of our members are getting into building!

I have decided to move my family to a new house, since mine is so boring (it's like a box). I'm not capable of making an interesting one from scratch, but I enjoy renovating, so I looked through all the houses in riverview, sunset valley (is that what it's called), and I chose the big house on the hill with a back entrance onto a path in Riverview. It's big, and interesting, and I'll be making it even bigger (and hopefully more interesting). I'll show you what I do with it, but it's gonna take me a while.

Hello my fellow sims loving people :)
I wanted to post a screen of a modern house I've made from scratch.
Had an idea in my head for some time which I worked on, finally made the idea and this is what came out :)
I've tried making it without any CC what so ever.
It has a very large area behind the red tree for  gardening :)
                              
                                


I'm also working on a medieval castle for my own satisfaction. I hope i can be forgiven for showing a screen of it for this time (forgive me since it contains CC stuff )




I love building from scratch, besides I don't do well with redecorating premade houses lol

Want to say that i really love most of the houses made from the others :) great work!

Me too.  I'd like to download that first one if it doesn't have any third party content in it.  I'd like to give it a test drive to see if it's playable.  If you decide to upload it to the exchange, please give the link here.  Thanks much!

Hi Pam. and Norma :) thanks for the positive reply.

I did make the house with some cc, but removed most of them because my cousin wanted the house (didn't know how her game would react without downloading the cc herself so took it out and remodeled the area).

The house is tested by myself and I loved it, even though it takes ages to get from top level to car pool :p

Btw, I am not really into modern stuff, but I just wanted to make one for once :)

Unfortunately, I got some issues with exchange at the moment, else I would upload it for sure.

It's also first time I have uploaded a screenshot from any of my houses :) so I love getting anymore comments or other ideas for improvement.
I got more screens of the modern house from inside. If anyone wants to see just pm me :)

This is the new room for my triplet girls who are about to age up to children.  It's at the Landgraab Mansion.

That's a lovely room Pam.

I'm impressed by your castle WickedSimmer. How did you make it so tall? Did you buy the castle parts from the online store? It's very creative and realistic.

Hey pallybdrome.

I don't remember anymore where I got the castle parts from :s

The lower section of the castle is actually the foundation where I used "moveobjects on" to put in windows and doors, etc. :)
I'm still working on getting the items to look like from medievel/victorian times. But it's a close call since I don't want to pay anymore for stuff.
I'll upload a pic once I'm done with some of the rooms :) if I'm allowed that is (remember it's included cc items).

Here's something I made for Pam:
http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=2829113

6 bedrooms, 6 full and 4 partial baths, gym, greatroom, loft, mancave, garden, nursery, playground and a couple of surprises ;) 
Built on a sloped lot so it looks like a 2-story from the front and a 3-story from the back (thanks Twinmum).
This thing was a beast to make!  I decided to go with a 'less is more' modern-contemporary style.  In other words there's lots of open space in the house and I don't have something hanging off of every wall, I tried to keep it simple - and I still managed to somehow get Beautifully Decorated in every room except the bathrooms, a couple bedrooms and the gym.
Since this house was tailored to Pam's request it pretty much requires all EP's and SP plus the Ultra Lounge and Collection Stanke sets, otherwise the house will be empty (which can be a good thing if you want to style it yourself  8)) There's way more going on in this house than I can show you with pictures so just download it and see for yourself!

Yours for the low low price of $375,850 lol.

Super nice house you've made Tommy :D

Since im not that much into the modern style, this house looks really awesome :)

I love big houses but they tend to be very costy lol

Squee!!  Oh, Tommy!  It is stunning!  I'm downloading it now.  I'm so glad you went with the "less is more" idea because I really don't like all the clutter in some of the houses.  I'd rather have space!  Thank you so much for building it for me!  You're awesome!!

Which lot did you construct it on that has a natural slope?  It's obviously in Sunset Valley and from the view of the ocean, it looks like it's that empty lot up by the Alto and Landgraab mansions.  But I didn't think that lot was sloped.

No, I recognize the view. The house is on the cliff at Redwood Pkwy right up the road from Agnes Crumplebottom.

But none of those are 60 x 60.  Nor are they sloped.

Hmmm...now I'm curious. I forgot it was 60X60 lot. Well, we'll just have to wait for the master builder himself to speak up.  :D

So are all of our Sims going to be living in Tommy's new house?  LOL I have been waiting for him to put it up and so I have downloaded it but won't have time to go peek at it until later this evening.  I LOVE it!  I also appreciate the open spaces in houses.  If you have toddlers it makes things easier.  I can't wait to see it.  The outside looks fabulous.  I actually think I have all the furniture sets.  I had to laugh when I saw the three cribs for Pam's triplets.  Makes ya wanna have triplets now.  I have never managed to get triplets though so far!  Thanks Tommy!  Lots of us appreciate your efforts.

Oh my!  I loaded the house Tommy built and placed it at 15 Summerhill Court in Sunset Valley.  I just got done touring the inside of the house and it really is fabulous!  It's so spacious and comfortable.  It's mostly warm neutral tones and everything matches wonderfully!  (My husband calls me a matching pervert because I want everything to match.  Hehe.)  And because it isn't full of clutter, I'm hoping that it won't bog down the game.  The decorations are spare, but tasteful.  And there's still room to put paintings done by my Sims.  It's really a lovely house.  Thank you, Tommy!  :D

I downloaded it too. And though it's a lovely house, it's not for me. I would want something quite different I think. But Tommy has done a great job, as always. You can't please everybody :)

Thanks guys glad you like it!  It's the 60x60 lot by the Alto's, I modified the terrain on that lot to have a hill in the front of it.  As far as I know there isn't an empty lot with terrain like that, you'd have to delete one of the other pre-made houses, but they're usually flat in the front and very steep in the back.

I downloaded it too.  I put mine in Riverview across from Jon Lesson's house.  I love the downstairs and the trophy room.  Now, to just find a sim with enough money to move in the housel. lol

You did an awesome job TommyT.  I am having trouble with building for some reason.  Maybe brain block, not sure. ;D
