@Shenice:

Do your houses have any third party custom content?

@Chocolatee:

Would you mind giving a link to the Exchange for your modern house?  I'd like to download it.  :)

@samoht04:

I wasn't able to download your French Villa.  Did you ever furnish it?

@Pam:

No my houses do not have third party custom content. Any and all CC is from the store. I don't trust third party custom content since my sims2 crashed and haven't even been to the exchange since I got the sims3 when it first came out. I'd really rather not risk it.

@Lilygirl

Thanks and your sims can actually swim in the pool. Talk about ice breakers at a party.

"So...."
"um..."
"Hey did you see that girl just swim by?"
"Yeah, I love her swimsuit."
"Oh my gosh! Me too."

Thanks, Shenice.  I just wanted to make sure because we don't want to host links to bad content.  :)

Perfectly understandable Pam. I'd be surprised if you didn't ask me.

Anyway here's a house I built a while ago.


This is the back


Zoom in of back. You can see exercise/office as well as the entrance to the bathroom.


Entryway leading to the stairs that lead down to the bottom floor. My favorite part of the house being the mini-library just beyond the stairs.


Bedroom/Powder Room/Bathroom


Finally the kitchen. You can't really see it in this picture, but right next to the refrigerator is a door that leads to a small patio with a grill and outdoor dining area.

This place is perfect for the single sim looking for love or the couple who just want to enjoy each others' company in style. This place isn't cheap though, at a little over $60K, but your paying for style and quality. "Bad night's rest" negative moodlet is a thing of the past here. So are the "Taste like fridge" and "Uneven Cooking" negative moodlets. Instead you'll get the "beautifully decorated" and "nicely decorated" moodlets. So what are you waiting for? Download today! Just click the link below! ;)

Disclaimer: Negative/Positive moodlets may vary.

Goodness Shenice, you have been busy! Your houses are beautiful, I bet your put tons of work into those. I especially love the interior design of the underwater house, very cute.  ;D

Really?  You mean third party custom content not from the Sims 3 Store?

I don't know. Some houses I downloaded have custom items and I may have used them while building.

Shenice your houses are fabulous.  Just downloaded them and recommended them and asked you to be my friend.

People, just a friendly remark here.  If we all download these lovely creations, please, let's be extra sweet and always recommend the houses or other things our forum members create.  If we don't recommend, Sims3 will pull them and they'll disappear.  So the more we recommend, the better it will be for our forum members.

On another note, I'm planning on doing an entire town remodel, (again), but this time I'll do it as a legacy/dynasty type thing.  I'm asking you all if I may use some of your fabulous creations, all credit given to the creator of course, in this remodel.  I'm also thinking of asking our so creative samoht if he would make me a world, or make US a world!  I want it to be C&P Forum Valley.  It will hold ONLY houses and other buildings we at the forum create.  Wouldn't that be awesome?  I don't know how to do create a world, (maybe I should learn), but I think it would be fun as a side adventure if we had a world of our own to populate with our created Sims and fill with our created buildings.  I dream big. lol

Sorry I haven't been posting my creations.  Been dynasty involved and had other issues.  Will put up some stuff soon.

@Ausette

Yeah I have been busy. Well bored since I did all my college applications and finished all my homework and really don't have anything else to do. I'm working on remodeling some of the houses already in game since to me they seem sort of outdated. I'll post more pictures as I finish them.

@Joria

Thank you for the recommendation and I accepted your friend request. I'm glad you like my houses. If you want to use my houses in your town you may. I don't really care, but I'm glad you at least asked first.

Very nice samoht.  And who is to say what looks French and what doesn't?  I like it.

Thanks Joria, the kitchen isn't a great shot but it is what they call a Galley Kitchen so it is hard to get the feel of it. I also did a modernish bathroom and a really rushed painting studio.

I see some familiar faces and some new ones making very nice houses as well.  ;)

Hello everyone, wow, I haven't posted/played for like three months.  You probably don't remember me, but I thought I'd drop by, get some inspiration so I can get back in the swing of things.  :D


Oh, sweet irony, deliver me from coincidence.

Gorgeous kitchen and dining room Thomas! I especially like the walls in the kitchen, very bold move.

First post here on the forums, and it happens to be in a building thread. Typical. =P

Anyway, I have been going through the whole 47 pages and looking at everyone's buildings. All I have to say is, wow! You all have some really beautiful houses. I am jealous. I love building, but compared to some of the houses in this thread - well, I just couldn't do it. Probably because I tend to stick to modern looking houses. Which, brings me to the main reason why I am posting.

I have a house to show off that I just finished building for my sims. They were living in an apartment, but then my female sim became pregnant with her second child and I realized that they couldn't live in apartments anymore. They needed a house, so, here it is:

Its a modern, two-story house, fit for a family or three or four. It has three bedrooms, one bathroom and a basement. ( Also, I was working on this house for quite a while, 4+ hours, and eventually wanted to get to back to playing. That is why some things have been missed or unfinished here and there.)

Here are the pictures.


The front of the house with the driveways, and stairs leading up to the actual house. All the nice big trees are for privacy reasons, plus, I think it makes it look nicer.


Better view of the front of the house.


The ground floor with a spacious living room (loving the new platform tool! So great for separating open rooms!), Kitchen/Dining area, bathroom and master bedroom.


Top floor with two bedrooms and a party room, which leads out onto the deck with the pool. (Also, loving the fact that you can now place pools on any level.)


And finally, the basement. The basement includes an inventing/sculpting room, display room and a room for making/storing and sampling nectar.

More shots can be found here.

So yeah, that is my house for my sims. Its not up for download or anything, because I don't generally do that. Also, a few of the patterns are CC, because I feel the EA patterns are never what I am looking for. If anyone would like this house though, let me know and I will replace the CC patterns with EA ones and put it up on the exchange. :)

I would liken myself primarily a modern builder as well.  Nice to meet another fellow of the trade.

Great use of lines.  I especially like the use of half-walls in the living room, although the upstairs entertainment room is likely my favorite.  The color palette of the exterior walls is particularly pleasing: the red cap of the half walls really ties the two shades of gray together.

The sheerness of the cliffs is interesting.  Although Sims needs a way to increase entropy in walls of the same height as to get a more realistic look stat.

As for my own dabblings, I'm glad to see I was able to get back into the swing of things.  I call this beach front bit, "Monochrome Marina."






Not the most amazing thing ever, but frankly I'm just glad I haven't completely lost my touch!

@Tayena:   I looked at all the pics and did not see one item of CC that wasn't either Sims3 store or freebie.  We use store CC all the time, just not 3rd party CC except for skin tones and things to make our Sims prettier in their face/hair.  Your house is one of the loveliest I have ever seen.  Modern houses can really look cold or stiff, but yours is clean in line, open, free flowing and yet cozy and homey.  It's a house I would definitely personally live in in real life.  So please, upload it so my Sims can enjoy it too.

@ Danefaith:  Another wonderful house from you and welcome back.  Where ya been dude?  I love your use of water features and can hardly wait for you to furnish this so we can all share.  I can smell those tropical breezes right now.
