Hi! I have a request please.

I want a office complex. It may be a community lot or a residential lot, i'm not particular there. A shell would be enough, though some basic furniture would be awesome.

Basically, i want my office complex to take pictures for my story. So will have to have a city hall office, business office and newpaper office plus a conference room and manager's cubicle. A reception area, cafeteria, doctor's office and military office would also be great.

And any additions you think best.

As I said before, furnishing is not a must. Just the floors, plumbing and wall covering would be enough.

The theme would preferably be modern and minimal, bu definitely may change according to the office.

Lot price and size can be anything. I actually don't want massive offices, but rather places with a realistic background.

Thank you in advance:). Just PM me if you need further clarifications.

It would be such a great help in fact. It is essential for the story and I really hate building.

Thank you in advance.

Just bumping this. Any takers please?

Showboat thread!  That's what I meant!  :)  Here ya go:  http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,1468.msg247915.html#msg247915

Argh! I'm about to lose what's left of my mind with this place! I FINALLY got the roofs to look like they're meant to, complete with modular landing stairs in the interior and a lot of threats to the game if it didn't start doing what I was trying to do. Go to test it out... and I get an unfinished room moodlet.  >:( And it's only in the open loft room. The rest are perfect. Even the double sided fireplace works properly! I can't fix it because the modular stairs don't allow me to close up the floor above with a roof. I don't know what more to do. I've got flat roofs, and half gables, and full gables and just about every type of roof there is on that house, and somehow, somewhere, I'm still doing something wrong to get that ridiculous moodlet. I could possibly change the stairs so I can close it up... but I like my stairs. I've got some ideas about how to maybe fix it that I will try after Kenjitsu tonight; but if they don't work I'm living with the unfinished moodlet. I like the rest of the layout too much to worry about some little piece of wall in the roof that any normal person wouldn't be able to see but that my sim picks up before she even looks around.  :-\

I should have the interior finished by the weekend depending on how much time I get to spend playing and how fussy I am and then I'll post it. Which is the original point of this post: I haven't forgotten about the cabin Cedia and will be posting it as soon as possible for you to have a look at.   :)

No, sorry... Not after the recent break-in... Yeah I've been hell-ridden the past month or so. I'm in serious trouble generally right now (circumstancially speaking) so the hole is deep. Digging my way out is gonna take a long time.

I'd be interested in trying this if you'd like? It may take the weekend, but I could probably have it up by Sunday.

I have a request for a house for Sunlit Tides.

A modern styled beach house built on a minimum lot size of 40x40. It should have at least four bedrooms plus a nursery with room for three cribs and toddler playing/skilling items. The nursery needs to be on the main level to avoid the toddler bug of sitting at the top of the stairs while the parent goes downstairs. Please have one of the children's bedrooms outfitted with bunk beds. This house is for a couple who both have a LTW of Surrounded By Family. There should be a playground, pool area, and barbecue area. Also, please make the rooms and any hallways large enough so the house will be easier to play with a large family.

No budget restraints.

I have all EPs, SPs and all store items so you won't have to worry about my not having any items.

Thank you to whoever is willing to build this house for me.

Hi, :)

I really want a 'log cabin' sort of house? A wood themed house with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and a pond. If anybody can do this it would be great! I've been trying to build it, but building houses on the sims 3 isn't going well for me. :)

Hi, Skyla!  I did a log cabin type of house with a big fishing pond for one of the building contests a while back.  You can find and download it here: http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,10295.0.html

That one is a two-bedroom, but the study could easily be made into a third bedroom, or you could add on to the side/put a basement in, etc.  If that one is not quite what you want, let me know and I'll see if I can adapt it or make something that's exactly what you're looking for.

REQUEST 2 - The Return:

A fairy "middler", 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, nursery, kitchen and, of course, a large fenced garden.

Max 40x40 lot and $ 100k.

No store content, easy on the EPs, except SN, obviously.

Thanks in advance.

I'll take a whack at this one this week -- didn't see any other takers.  Looks like fun!

I have a request for a shell. It does not need to be painted, decorated, furnished, or anything. It only needs the outer walls, any necessary inner walls, basement, roof, and most importantly staircases.

What I am looking for, after much frustration and yelling at my laptop screen, is a creepy, scary, vampire-esque manor, with a few specific details. This is a very general idea of what I am looking for:


I would, if possible, like it to be placed on a hill, though this is not necessary. If not, then on a higher-than-normal foundation.
It should be built towards the back of the lot, with 6-8 tiles free out back for a garden. Lot size 30x30 or 40x40.
I would like it to be 2 floors, with a smaller third floor set up to be like a tower.
I want it to have a 'grand staircase' from the first floor to the second. What I mean is...

The front door should align with this staircase, so when you walk through the front door it's right there, with 6-ish floor tiles between door and stairs.
The stairs from the second floor to the third floor 'tower' should be spiral.
I would also like a hidden room, behind the grand staircase, that has a staircase that goes down to ground level, then another that leads into a basement made with the basement tool. Size of basement does not matter, I'll adjust it. Just as long as all the stairs are placed and functional. Like this: (Does not matter if the stairs are L-shaped or not, but preferably 2 tiles wide to prevent pathing issues)


I do like the little roof sections that jut out, I don't know what they are called.

I know this is super specific. I just have this image in my head of a house with these features and I cannot figure out how to make it happen.
If anyone would like to try building this for me I'd be so so happy!! If you have questions feel free to PM me.

Hi, m.sato -- I finished up the "middler" fairy cottage for you.  You can find it here: http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,13087.msg255658.html#msg255658

I went a bit over budget, sorry!  But hopefully this is something like what you were looking for.  If the budget is a huge issue, you can pull out some of the art to bring it under 100K.

@fortheloveofcake: When do you need it? I need to get WA again (2 weeks from now) since I only have base game after losing everything in one go... I'll do it if you have the patience.

I don't have WA either, I believe the basement tool was added in with the patch. If not I can add that in myself. Its really mostly the split staircases that are frustrating me, as well as having the house elevated. I get the concepts behind using CFE, I just cant seem to get the finished product to look right. I'm in no rush for it.

This is more of a remodeling request.  The Cleanesque Laundromat in Twinbrook is such a cute building!  I have been trying for a while to make it into a home but it just looks terrible.  Would anyone like to take a turn at trying to make it into a home?  I'd like the outside to stay the same, but be able to move a family in!  I have all EPs installed, no stuff packs.  Thanks in advance!

At least two beds and two baths but the total is up to you.    I am not picky about EPs used, so don't worry about that.   Thanks!  You are awesome!

I made some changes to the exterior, mostly replaced the windows with a style that I think fits the style of the house a bit better, and changed the roof color. I can change it back if you liked it better the original way. Let me know, and then I will get started on the inside. I have the rooms laid out already, and the kitchen is complete.



EDIT: Finished!!

It's on the swap shop here!
