Hi, I'd like to make a request.

It's a bit strange, but I'd like a 20x30 lots with two houses on it, or a smaller lot with a townhouse on it. It's for my family whose gone through a divorce and I still want to play as everyone. It should fit the theme of Twinbrook, and one side should fit the artistic mother with twin sons, and the other side should fit the father who's in the military, and his simbot.

I have no SP, and the only EPs I have are Amb, Supernatural, Pets, and WA.

Okay so I'm playing Amy Bull and would like her to have a family. Her house isn't exactly family friendly.
I want a house, ~60k or so in price, 2-3BR [One of the bedrooms can double as a nursery], 2 bath. Size? At most, 40x40 please.
And style, well.. this is Twinbrook, so make it eclectic and odd.

I have the following expansion packs: Pets, Supernatural, Ambitions, Seasons, Island Paradise, World Adventures, Generations and Showtime.
Stuff packs: Town Life, Outdoor Living and Master Suite.
You don't have to furnish it, I like empty shells, but you can furnish it if you want.

I've just unlocked an island in Isla Paradiso that I love and I'd really like to move my current family there but build/buy mode crashes on me too much and well, I'm lazy  :D

I'd like a modern beach resort on preferably either a 40x40 or 50x50 lot, go crazy with the price. I'm playing an unofficial legacy sort of game so I'd like 6 bedrooms (you don't have to put a lot of detail into them, I'll probably adapt it to my sims as they move in and out) and 2-3 bath. Apart from the modern specification I'm pretty flexible on everything else; as long as it's a good size because a lot of the time there will be a big family living there.

SPs: High-end Loft, Town Life and Master Suite.
EPs: World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Supernatural, University and Island Paradise.
No store content please  :)

NearlyWitches, are you looking for a complete resort, or a resort-like house?  I'm happy to try either one.  If you're interested, let me know, and I will PM you for additional details.

A resort-like house, I probably should have made that clearer. Thanks for taking up my request and feel free to PM me if there's anything else you want to know.

I'd quite like to give this a go, Axiom. It would be a couple of weeks though. Is that okay?

I'd love to have a Barbie Dream House style home. 40x40 or 50x50 is preferable, though a bit smaller is okay. Budget is 150,000. Rooms for about four sims and a nursery/kids room would be great. Feel free to make as glitzy and pink as you want. I have Ambitions, Pets, Generations, Supernatural, and Island Paradise. Thanks!

Can somebody build me a house including a greenhouse using the store item Stone Throw Garden? 

The house should have at least 3 bedrooms (for grandparents,parents and unknown baby).   

I would also like a man cave/skilling room in basement,  a outside BBQ/fun area and a place for laundry.

Lot size is up to you, since game crashed and family is currently saved in the sims bin.   I have all expansions, stuff packs and of course stone throw garden.

I have a request for two pair of stairs. I worked on one of them yesterday for hours, and it just didn't work.

I'm building a palace, based on a real palace, and I need to u shaped stairs in them. I followed the tutorial on the site, but I didn't get it to work. Probably because my palace in on a foundation.

If someone can help me, please PM me. I can then explain things better.

As a preview of what I'm looking for, here two links to pictures of the stairs:

Stair 1: http://www.paleizen.nl/Paleizenbestanden/Images%20paleizen/Nederland/Den%20Haag/Noordeinde/1.02%20Koningstrap%20voor%201940.jpg
The carpet on the stairs is not required. Just marble looking is enough.

The trouble with custom stairs like what you want, is that they can be very temperamental to build and should be planned for when you first start building. They are not something that you can just copy and paste into your building, so for someone to build them, you would probably have to tell them the specifics of your lot and exactly where you want the stairs to be. Another option would be to upload the lot as it is and get a builder to download the lot, build the stairs and upload the newer version for you to download and continue building. I hope that makes sense.

As you can see I'm new to the whole request thing.

My idea was to have someone build it in my house, after I uploaded it. But I'd rather send it to the person who's gonna build it for me, instead of directly uploading it to the forum.

I can understand you wanting to just send it straight to the person, but as I said, you really need to build stairs first and then do the rest of the house around it. It is extremely difficult (if not impossible) to build the stairs once the house is already built.

That's probably the reason I failed building it. I now have two 'normal' stairs placed. It's just more fun to have things authentic.

I'm just hoping there is a stairs magician out there some where.

I have a new request because while I'm getting better at building, this is so far beyond my abilities, it's a joke.

If anyone can, there is a wish for an underground domain for Lord of the Underworld and Riches himself, Hades.

Expansions: Amb, LN, Gen, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, UL, and IP (with plans to get Future)
Stuff Packs: Fast Lane Stuff, 70s, 80s & 90s stuff, Movie stuff
Store Content: Dragon Valley and Midnight Hollow
Bedrooms: Master and guest
Baths: 2 baths minimum
Additional Requirements: the resulting house/temple/thing should be able to fit a 64X64 lot, with as many pillars as you can justify. One above ground level - like a welcoming hall, and on the default-level of the property, a small river (pretend it's the metaphorical Styx, with a bridge over it - sorry, Charon, you're unemployed here).

I've never made a building request, so I hope I do this right.

I have a floor plan that I want to turn into a Sims home.  I am inserting pictures at the bottom.

I have every expansion and stuff pack pack (except movies and the future one)...  I do not want any store content or any other custom content.

I only want the shell built, you don't have to furnish or paint walls.  You are welcome to do exterior stone/brick (choose lighter colors if you do).
The only thing I'd love to see different from this plan is to flip it, making the living room and entry on the right instead of the left.  There doesn't have to be a large lot, only a small space on the sides and a reasonable bit left behind the home.  I'd like the fireplace included.  The stairs have a landing, then a small step up to another landing to go up the rest of the way.







If I need to add to my request or missed anything let me know.  TYIA!
