Ausette - Thank you!  I'm glad you like it.  It was hard getting good interior shots as the house is on the smaller side.  I hope these are okay.

I just want to join the crowd and say that your nectary is splendid, Redlaw. :) I'd love to have that in my towns, but all my active ones are either a dynasty or a legacy.

Your houses are gorgeous too, Danefaith and Linley. :D

Thanks TheChronicR I hope to be ready to post my next lot soon. The Vampire Lounge: Pharaohs Blood. Last few things I want to add are what description and I am still playing with the outside a bit. But I love the fact that I can now get a mummy (and fix it) with out having to travel any farther then to the local undead loving club.

I love it when I get good random ideas. Slowly ill be making all of the 9 different bars.


Edit: Fixed a small spelling error I spotted. Always good to comeback and read what you write every now and then.

My latest WIP is almost complete. All that's left is the Master bedroom/penthouse and placing all the space maker thingies.




Did some landscaping. I tried to blend the landscape in with the landscape around.



Living room because I didn't know what else to put there.



Office




Second bedroom. I was inspired by my indoor garden for this room. I think it fits an Eco-friendly person.



The spare bathroom.



And then the outdoor entertainment place/thing.

I hope to have this place wrapped up later today and then I'll upload it to the swap shop and exchange.

Lynley, I love your house! How did you get such clean lines attaching your garage to a house on a foundation? I'm curious, I thought the walls would always warp!

Thanks!  The walls are warped, but the vertical paneling seems to hide most of it pretty well.  I had to put the locker/toolbox near the stairs because the interior wall looked funny there, but otherwise, vertical siding does a nice job of camouflaging those warped areas.

Thanks for the pictures Lynley, the whole house feels so light and calming  :). DeNile, the wallpaper only warps vertically when you use cheats to raise the height, so if you get a wallpaper that's vertically consistent (like the panelling), it looks pretty much normal when you put it on the walls. Shenice, you're doing a beautiful job on your apartment building and I can't wait to see it finished  ;D.

I always come here when I see someone has posted, because it means there are more houses to look at.  I love all of these houses and anyone that has put them in the Swap Shop, I have probably downloaded.  I especially love that little bar that has a swimming pool.  I can't remember the name, but I believe danefaith built it, I hope I am not mistaken, but I still love it.  I have one town, that has so many houses from here and they all are great.  I don't even do much to them, except maybe add something here and there.  I truly respect all of the time and effort you members put in these houses and I can tell you enjoy building them.  I like to build, but I am not really good at it and I have one house in the exchange.  It was my octogon house that actually turned out pretty good.  Keep up the good work and as long as you guys keep building them, I will keep downloading them. :)

I've spent a nice little chunk of my evening flipping through this post.  There are some really nice places here!  I'm no pro, but I though I'd share my current favorite Sim's house.  It's not much, but it makes me happy.


I don't think a fountain in a koi pond is all that healthy for the fish, but I liked the look.


Back view of the house, including the den overlooking the ocean.


Aerial view of the first floor.  Kitchen, dining room, sunken den, hallway, and living room.


And of the second floor.  Laundry room in the hallway, bathroom, and two bedrooms.


Livin' room.


Kitchen & dining room.


Sunken den/rec room.  My favorite.


Second floor laundry and bathroom.

I can't wait to explore the forum more and see what else I can see!   :)

Welcome to the forum Quiet Delusions!
I like that house! Is it next to Agnes Crumplebottom's house?

This is my newest WIP.



It's going to be hopefully Three bedrooms for a large family as part of a story I hope to be starting that will eventually cover the whole of a refurbished Sunset Valley, this is where the Alvi's used to live before they were evicted.  ;)

Onto yet another job, lol.  My latest shell:





Unfortunately very boring windows in the back.  Any ideas?

It needs something to break it up in my opinion, maybe use that brick spaced between the windows or something. What about some modern Columns? Then have a bit of an overhang to cover the top of the columns?

Change the window colour to black. Or the wall colour. Maybe (If you have LN) put in the barred windows.

Ended up redoing the bathroom in a new color scheme before finishing off the last few rooms.

I know this was a very long time ago - but how did you get that effect behind the toilet with the wall paper and floor?

I saw this a while back and loved the look. I made a mental note to try in my next build, which I finally started last night, assuming that you used a striped wallpaper on just those sections, but I couldn't find one that came out as smooth as that.

Hey OS, I actually didn't use a striped wallpaper, I used a wall covering called "barn wall with pilaster" in the panelling section.  It comes in two flavors, on with the pilaster one the left and one with the pilaster on the right.  That way, I can paint a stripe with a border effect.  In this specific case I used a stone texture on for the wall and wood for the pilaster.

For the floor, I used, "squares with border" in the misc. section.  I applied the textures of the wall to the floor and then rotated it to get the border on both sides.

Continued on my build by adding a small extension to the second floor and a modern frieze.  Also flesh out the front landscaping.





As for the iffy side view, I went the stripe route and fleshed it out with a mini-car port and some landscaping.  Feeling much fuller now!
