Quick question: Can one of the bed spaces be a crib or does it have to be for child and above?

A crib counts as a bed space.

Thanks.

I have to start over again. §95,000 is very difficult given the style you're asking. I've tried 3 times but kept going over budget.

Ah, that's a shame. Although at least it's a challenge! It doesn't have to be on as large a scale as the images I provided, you could get away with 6 or 7 4x4 blocks possibly. :)

I had to do a lot of editing to keep mine under budget . My entry is nowhere near what I wanted to do . Plants made the cost go over so the 4 gardens have no plants .  :P I love a good challenge and this one was just that . Great fun !  ;)
