Thanks a lot for the feedback!  It took a couple nights to build.  By the time I was done furnishing and everything, my sim had just enough money to move in.  It was about 104,000 total.  I'm gonna have to spread out the pictures in different posts because I went over 5 image limit.  First post :)

Awesome house and you have it decorated beautifully.  Good job. :)

Whipped up a new WIP today.  Feel good about this one.






Although I was totally lame and borrowed from one of my previous works in framing the front door, I like the character this one has.

that's a really cool looking house danefaith. How did you get that big frame at the front and back? I can see it must be foundation at the bottom, walls along the side, but the top? Did you somehow put foundation there too?

Its a foundation, yes.  You can place foundations on roofs or between floors with the building cheat: placefriezes on.  Just remember to input it before selecting the foundation tool and put placefriezes off when you want to, well, put foundation again.  :P

That house is very cool! :) I like the frames around the front and back doors, although I don't think the doors match the modern look of the house. Other than that it looks great!

Hmm, I was a little complacent in my door selection.  I'll take a look at other options.

@Pianoman:

Very nice work there.  Have you thought about maybe submitting it to our Swap Shop?  As long as it does not contain third party content, I'm sure Carl would love to have it.  :)

Re-shaped the exterior a little bit.  Made the detached unit a little more in tandem with the main building - made their heights level and used the same window structure - and I ditched the floating extensions for an indented, glass wall.  I began landscaping with walled in, zen stone arrangements.  I'm considering incorporating some desert foliage as well.

Thoughts?

Here is a house I've been working on, just when I need a break from my Legacy-
It's done mainly in orange, and has 3 bedrooms, all with en-suites.


This is the front view.


First floor, with an entry, dining room on one side, lounge and small study on the other. Next to the dining room, a half-bathroom and spacious kitchen with a nectar rack.


In the room with the stairway from level one, there is a small disply area. Next to that is "girly" bedroom, with it's own full bathroom, from there is a big living/skill room. It has a little balcony attached, in addition to a large party area. A home movie theater is included, next to the laundry, as well as a double bedroom with a bathroom.


The large "hallway" room contains an entry to the master bedroom, with a lavish bathroom. There is another laundry, and another kitchen, done in cool blue, with an outside BBQ and dining area.

Any criticism or comments welcome ;D

Nice, guys! Ruby, I adore the floorplan of your orange house, it's so spacious and flowing. I'd probably try to enclose the carport a little though, those wooden columns look a little precarious. Perhaps you could make some columns with the wall tool instead? For you danefaith, I'd say the structural changes you made are definitely for the better. I'm loving the modern feel and the limey green colour. The Zen garden's pretty sweet too, but I think the bamboo trees are blocking the front too much and the rocks on the left look a little lonely. We don't want to distract from the building itself too much. Desert foliage does sound good, if you have any cacti. The smoother lines would look better, I think. Aside from my minor nitpicking, they're both lovely houses, good job. :)

As for me, I just found this mansion that I vaguely remember working on a little while ago. Well, it's a bit of a stretch calling a house on a 30 x 30 lot a mansion, but it's the most mansion-y house I've ever built so goshdarnit, I'm calling it a mansion. It's just a shell right now and the exterior's not quite done (that garden in the back has to go), but here's some pics for the gist of it:

Front view:

Back view:


I still have to put a fair bit more work into it. For one, I'm having trouble mapping out the rooms in a realistic way. So far there's four large bedrooms with a smaller one for a butler, but that's subject to change if I find something more efficient. As for the outside, what do you think?

Thanks heaps for the comments, Ausette! I might try using wall columns soon, and I'll glad you like the layout.
I love your mansion, especially the water urn with the flowers out the back, it looks perfectly suited to the mansion.

I like the changes to the house, Danefaith! The carport is really cool being underneath the bridge, and the bamboo and zen gardens look great. :)

danefaith - it looks marvelous. I actually like the trees and rock garden, though the one on the left with just rocks could use something to add life to it.

ruby - that's a gorgeous house. I agree the carport poles look a bit precarious though.

Yeah I was a bit lazy with the left hand rock garden, finally got around to sprucing it up though.



I also trimmed the bamboo trees to just four, smallest size.

Furnished the detached unit.   Ended up being one tricked out gymnasium with hot tub.

This is a house I built for my young Carina Dreamweaver after she finished the My Garden of Eatin' Smells Fishy challenge.  I tore down her existing small boxy house and built one that's nicer, but not overblown.  It's a modern theme for the beach and is decorated in pastel shades of aqua, green, blue, and purple.  I wanted an open and breezy feeling, so it's got lots of big windows.

Exterior:


Ground level:


Kitchen:


Dining Room:


Living Room:


Master Suite:


Butler's Quarters:


Nursery:


Note:  I seldom post in this thread and didn't realize how difficult it is to be limited to only 5 images per post.  Sorry about that, guys.  I'm going to allow 10 images per post from now on.  :)
