Please define "Reception Room".  Not something I'm familiar with.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Hey Joria,

I'm not the contest team, but I did some looking up and this is what I was able to find:

Quote
reception room
n
1. a room in a private house suitable for entertaining guests, esp a lounge or dining room
2. a room in a hotel suitable for large parties, receptions, etc

The team can correct if this isn't what they meant, of course.  And if I answered out of turn, I apologize!

Oh good!  After I answered, I was a little worried for some reason.  I know we can't ask for help with our actual builds, but didn't think that answering a question like that would hurt.

An exception is being made and @CynKuy has been allowed to upload her house, as I missed her timezone when checking. I am allowing changing votes in this contest only, if you would like to change your vote in light of this.
