Building Contest #3 2016 - What are Walls?

Building Contest #3
What are Walls?



Words that spark a philosophical discussion amongst Sims include "What are Walls?", "Are Llamas real?", "Why am I being watched by an omniscient camera in the sky?". In this particular task, you're not allowed to use something fundamental. Be prepared to be challenged.




Specifications:
  • Budget: No Budget!
  • Lot Size: Unrestricted
  • Requirements:
    • You are only allowed up to one wall on one tile, on which you should place your toilet and shower.
    • All of a Sim's motives must be capable of being fulfilled.




Contest Specific Rules:
  • You may only have one entry, from TS3 or TS4. You cannot enter both.
  • There will be only one winner.

Are we only allowed one wall for the whole build? Or is it one wall per tile?

What about half-walls? Are they allowed?

Can fences be used or would that be considered a type of wall? And does the wall have to be used for a toilet and shower or can it be used for something else like a door?

One wall for the whole build. The spirit of the rules is that the wall is for a toilet, but that's not hard and fast. Fences are allowed, but no half-walls. :)

2016 Building Contest #3 (Sims 3): Hedge Fund

Lot size 64 x 64
3 bed spaces (1 double, 1 single) plus cot, 3 bathrooms
Price on original lot: §114591 furnished, §68756 unfurnished.  (Screenshots taken at 29 S Falls Ave, Moonlight Falls.)
Content used: World Adventures, Ambitions, Fast Lane, Late Night, Outdoor Living, Generations, Pets, Supernatural, Showtime, University Life, Keep Me Clean Outdoor Shower.

Jack Hedge, a.k.a. The Mad Topiarist, built this house for his own use.  His heirs, unable to face the constant clipping required to keep it in shape, have now put it on the market.  An ideal home for a level ten sculptor with plenty of time on their hands or a Sim rich enough to employ an army of gardeners.  It would not suit Sims who hate the outdoors (or the colour green).  Real Princesses should probably also steer clear – the ‘soft’ furnishings are inevitably somewhat twiggy.

The castle is constructed entirely from fences, by the way.

@Seabody Could I please have the thread containing my entry to Building Contest #3 unlocked? I am going to try to upload my house again, especially as hazelnut has now been able to upload their house.

Thank you

Lot name: Oasis Park (Sims 4)

The Oasis Park is the perfect place to spend the day or night out in the middle of the dessert.  It offers yoga, gym facilities, outdoor movie theatre, kids' play area, a bar and dance platform for whatever entertainment you want.

The Oasis Park would also make a great party venue with the ability to hire a DJ and mixologist.  Invite your friends to party or movie watch all night long! (Considered a Gym to allow for a working spa instructor!)

This contest is now over and I am locking it for voting.

I'll also use this as an opportunity to plug the recent Announcement regarding the future of the Contests. :)
