@Samoht: I've been having the same problems with Photobucket.  I don't know what's going on with those sizes.

AWESOME!  Salty that is a great house.  Can I live there please?  And thanks for letting me know what BBI was.  I know I'm a little insane but I would have to be certfiable to do one of those.  I raised six kids of my own, then a grand kid, and now a great-grand kid so doing it in Sims would be beyond my ability to cope!

I love the legacy house!  Aw, let's face it I've loved them all.  You guys inspire me.

Well, I'd like to show off my favorite house I've ever made, the farm. It's the one I'm currently playing my own for-fun legacy on, and I'll take pictures as it grows into a different house.



*Ahem* Welcome to the Johnson family farm! We grow only the freshest produce around for the good townsfolk of Riverveiw. Let's take a better look at this here family farm.



As you can see from this here street view that this home has been renovated from it's original appearance to accompany a garage and a larger planting field for the farm's current operations. Why don't we take a look at the interior?



The small downstairs has a large living room, a bathroom with separate bath housing, and a quaint nursery for the little ones. The kitchen has a wrap around counter and large enough dining space to accompany a party of people. Let's go upstairs, shall we?



This is our gorgeous upstairs room, with a small family game area, two small children rooms, the master suite, and the second story bath, all looking out onto the ranch and the woods beyond. This is nice and all but hey, what's a farm without a barn? Let's go take a look!



This is a wonderful space for storage and such, now that the animals are gone. These stalls could be reworked into a good condition though, if the need arises...Now let's take a look...



At the loft! What was once hay storage and a romping ground for children is now a respectable bedroom for the oldest of the current resident's kids, who's set up to be a star gazer out the loft's old pulley entrance. He hopes to renovate the home once his parents pass on, into a beautiful mansion of sorts for he and his sister's families.

Hope you enjoyed this here tour of a gorgeous ranch, the Homestyle Johnson Family Ranch! You come back now, ya hear?

Hehe, thanks...I did a stupid though. I forgot to take out the sprinklers that never shut off out from behind the cows.  :( I can't turn 'em off, and I don't like soaking my sims, so I moved 'em, and forgot to destroy 'em later.

Here's something for you, Joria.

Baby Boomer Article

Searches closet for a Pam size straight jacket.  Prepares padded room.  Makes sure tranqs are ready.   YOU ARE NUTS!

Actually, it kind of sounded like my house when I had my six.  They were so close together my doctor asked if he could buy us a tv!  True story.  Kudos to you for completing this challenge.  I doubt I would ever attempt it.

TollingBells I love your farm! I also really like your interiors, I'm a sucker for wooden flooring for my Sim houses.

Oh, thanks Sarah.  :) I stuck by with the theme of it being a old farm house, with no renovation beyond some furniture and plumbing. I was shocked at the sheer amount of 'Farm yard' decorations, like the giants stacks of hay. It really was fun to do, and I hope I can make better ones in the future. I should post my renovations on one of the swampy houses in Twinbrook.

Here's a good-sized Colonial house I whipped up this morning.  40x30 lot, 6 bedrooms, 5+1 baths, total of 8 beds and a crib.  Save up your lunch money though because this beast's $166,901 haha.  You can download it here: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=2702434.  Base game objects used only.

The only fault with your houses Tommy, is that they always seem to be better than mine! In my world, that's a bad thing. ;D But then again, I build like giant, horrible shoe-boxes.
Heh, jokes aside, wonderful house! ;)

Gorgeous, TommyT!  That's a great house for some of my large families.  I've already downloaded it.  :D

If you're stuck for inspiration, I'd love to see a very modern style house that's big enough for a large family.  It seems like most modern houses are for single or couple Sims, and when it gets to be enough for a family, it goes back to a traditional or Victorian look.  I've got the Stanke Collection, so I'd be able to use those items.  High End Loft items are also great for modern houses.

Pam, I've been wanting to do something like that for a while - some giant monster with a pool, game rooms, huge open floor plan, specific gardening area, all that jazz.  Might have to go 60x60 on this one :)

Yeah I totally agree with you on that Pam! All modern homes are for like two sims. I just wiped all of my CC files including store so at the moment I am in the slow process of re-downloading all of it. Once I am done I am going to start on my own building projects, TommyT should stop inspiring me!  :D

I build like giant, horrible shoe-boxes.

I know how you feel.  :'( I build the boxiest, most horrid looking things when I'm trying to build a manor. There was one that looked like a giant fort of a building. I hated it.

Uh, it's "Y'all come back now, ya hear?" For those who don't come from the South, feel free to come visit us, and we can giggle at yer funny accents!  ;D

 :'( Don't mock me. All I know is from TV and a Math Teacher that was from Tennessee. She pronounced it 'May-ath.' Besides, I was only getting the vibe out...  :-[ (Cries in corner)

Hold on, now. No one is mocking you. If anything, jmz is just poking fun at himself and other Southerners and the way they say things. Pam uses Southern lingo all the time in her casual writing. As Salty said recently, "We've got a room full of comedians in here."

I made a House! :)

It is called Casa de Century (Because I couldn't think what to call it!  ;) and I also made a Spelling mistake on the name of the Exchange Upload!)
