I downloaded them both!  More! More!  Encore!  Save my lazy bones you builders! lol  I love it when there are houses I don't have to do anything to to make them perfect. 

If everyone who sees our gang's houses isn't favoriting them, please do so.  It keeps them on the list longer.  Might not be a bad idea to also mention these creators can be found at Carl and Pam's website.  What do you think, Pam?

Why would you mention us in a negative way?

No one who "lives here" the way most of us do will ever have anything negative to say about this site or the people who dwell here!  I think I will make some more houses and upload them to the exchange just so there are some safe houses for folks to download and use.  Mine aren't as great as some, (Tommy T comes to mind just off the top of my head), but not too bad.

I've been building/remodeling on Cascade Shores so I'll post a before and after shot of some of those places.

Nice touch with adding a fence around the tombstones to make a grave.

Ironically, it's a very lively graveyard Joria! Wonderfully done nonetheless. ;)

This has got to be my favourite house I have ever built!  :D

This large family home is situated on a beautifull lot, the landscaping is mainly natural with rocks and flowering bushes, there is playground aperatus and a small pond.

Love the layout of that house Samoht!  I'm thinking it would be a great Legacy house. :)

Clever concepts!  I like the partially-walled patio with the palm tree and the use of fencing in the kitchen.  You've made me realize it's been far too long since I put something up :) any requests?

A sharp and modern style house big enough for a large family!  Big nursery so there's plenty of room for teaching to walk and stuff.  Top of the line everything.  I've got the Stanke Collection, Animals Abound, Ultra Lounge Kitchen and Bath, Ultra Lounge Youth Set, and Asian Fusion, in case you happen to also have any of those sets.  I don't care for bright, blaring colors.  Price is no object!  :D

Here are a couple of shots of redecorated vacation homes in Shang Simla and Al Simhara.

Ooh, I love the Al Simhara one, Pam, but I'm not too big of a fan of the color scheme for Shang Simla. Still, you did a good job with both.

I wasn't terribly fond of the colors on the Shang Simla house, either.  It looks like Christmas!  But I had committed to those colors, so had to finish with them.  I really didn't feel like doing it all over again.  The one in Al Simhara is the expensive palace.  It's a nice place to vacation, no doubt.

Hm...I think if you took the white and made it a goldenrod, and made the green a light olive color, it may look better. Just what I think. Otherwise, it's very beautiful.  :)

I like the Shang Simla colours actually. I think they don't look like christmas, because the green is sort of a sea green - not the usual christmas green.

With all of this talk about building, I am starting to venture more into that aspect.  So far from what I have seen, you guys houses are awesome.  I also put this house on the exchange, which is also my first time and I didn't mean to put the sims with the house, but I am learning.  Here is the screenshots and the link to the house on the exchange.  Any advice is appreciated since I really do not know what I am doing when it comes to building, but from TommyT's instructions and everyone else's pics, I am getting there.  My sister has always been the builder and she is really good at it too.
