Description: This not-quite starter home catches every passer-by's eye with the pale pink brick work highlighting the front door. The sunken Foyer leads up into the Living Area, which features a fireplace and enough seating for all your guests. To the left, around the fireplace, is the Master Bedroom at the front of the house. This room is as inviting as it is warm, decorated in chocolate brown and lilac/purple with light wood furniture. The bathroom has a separate shower and tub, closed off toilet, and includes a washer and dryer. At the back of the house, past the fireplace, is the second bedroom done in blue and yellow with dark wood furniture. This is the perfect child's room and includes a piano. Past the living area is the modern eat-in kitchen with bold tile work off-set by black-and-white counters and appliances. The French doors lead out to a back deck that is a must-see to appreciate!

Stunning house, lily. I love that it is so modern, yet with a beautiful, classic charm.
Also, how did you get the sunken foyer? It loks really good! ;D

A sunken foyer, hmm...

I'll have to try that sometime.  Did you use friezes or constrainfloorelevation false for that?

The living room is very inviting.  Those are some great patterns going on.  Love the chairs and the bass pattern I particularly enjoy, it's just so left field and innovative.


Oh, sweet irony, deliver me from coincidence.

Please feel free to utilize any of my builds in any of your stories and so forth.

Lily this is beautiful - The house and deco fit together just perfectly!
Thanks :)

Just placed it in Bridgeport and moved a couple of single male sims I created, one teenager and one young adult-Potential teen boyfriend for my sim teen Mia.
The house looks great! Of course I had to cheat - free realestate for them to live there but Mia had to meet a teen with a nice house! :)

I just downloaded this one too.  It is gorgeous.  Eventually, I would like to redo a town with nothing  but homes and clubs the members have built and uploaded.  Who needs the sims 3 site, lol.

This.

My kind of house. Great use of the CAS on the patterns and textures. I love how there are so many colors but it all blends. Can't wait to download when I get home.

Thank you to everone for your awesome comments! I'm very proud of myself for being able to build this house to match how I wanted it to look! I'm super glad that you guys like it. I don't get to play with LN much so I wanted to build a house using the LN stuff. The house has a couple things from the other EPs and the shower from HELS, but other than that it's all LN.

I used both placefriezes and constrainfloorelevation cheats for the foyer and the back deck, I really wanted to try out the placefriezes cheat and when I found this house plan online, I thought it would be the perfect chance. The house "foundation" is 1/2 a wall tall allowing for the 2-tiered deck, which wasn't planned for until the very end. The second level of the foyer was constrained down to equal height of the house (no room for windows above the door), then a frieze placed on top. The back deck took almost an hour to get the levels to work but I love how it turned out. Of course, it's not a LN house without a hot tub!

Very elegantly done!  I have such trouble with those shades and love it when someone else uses them and I'm able to download their excellent work!  This one is a keeper and will fit right in with some of my town makeovers.  Like Saltypaws, my intention is town after town all made by our forum gang!

This house is absolutely lovely!  I moved a new sim into it today and have been playing all afternoon.  Sim is happy and so am I :)  Thank you so much for sharing your creativity.

Thank you! I personally love this one too. Usually there's a couple things that just aren't right but I can't put my finger on it. This one I just love. Period.

I love it, too.  I'm going to move a couple of my yellow Dreamweavers into it in Bridgeport.  Modern designs are my absolute favorite.

Oooh, do I spy some fiendishly clever use of the constrainfloorelevation false cheat? I'd love to know how you did the foyer. And the details - the patterns are beautiful, the layout is clever, and I love how you've taken the time to recolour things like towels and planters. Aside from the clever foundations and moveobjects on tricks, I especially love the way you've used the fireplace to divide up the living space and hallway. Very, very cool.  ;D

Thanks Pam! I'm glad it actually qualifies as modern. My modern houses usually turn out looking more and more traditional the longer they take to create.

Ausette, what I did was build the exterior walls of the house minus the foyer. Then, off to the side, I lowered the ground 2 "stairs", flattened a section down and build a wall in the hole. This makes the top of this wall 2 "stairs" above ground, or 1/2 the height of a normal wall. Then I used the constrain cheat to lower the external house walls down to the height of the wall in the hole (the lowered exterior walls now form the "foundation" of the house.) Next, I built the 2 exterior foyer walls which maintain their original height allowing for placement of doors and windows. At this point the foyer walls are higher than the house/foundation walls.

Then, I built the first floor by adding walls on top of all exterior walls ("foundation"), all the way around. It takes some fiddling and patience to get walls on top of the slanted sections but it's doable. Then, I lowered the second story foyer walls down to the same level as the rest of the second story (which is technically the first floor of the house.) Then the constrain cheat got turned off. Now, with the placefriezes cheat on, I added a frieze to the top of the foyer walls. Tada!

What a lovely house, lilygirl.  The back patio area looks wonderful: loving the levels both there and from the foyer up to the living area.  I'm looking forward to seeing it in game and will be so envying the sim that gets to live in it.

I've chosen this house for one of my Lives of Barnacle Bay stories, so thanks, it looks good. I just have to add another bedroom :)

I'm honoured, Pally! I think there might be just enough room to add a set of stairs in the kitchen, along the wall adjacent to the second bedroom. A second story shouldn't be too hard to add.

Or I could build you another house. One with 3 bedrooms.

Hehe I'm glad it turned out to be your house I chose - I did think it was the best smallish modern house on the swap shop. I'll play around with it for adding the third bedroom, but thanks for the tips with the stairs, and I'll be changing some furniture to accommodate the family, but nothing too drastic. Just have to hope that the family I have in mind have enough cash, so I might have to get rid of some expensive items, maybe. Should get on to it this week sometime :)

@ Pally: I didn't pre-depreciate this house so if you place it and have another Sim move in, hit play for just a second, the value of the lot should decrease as the furnishings depreciate. Then have that Sim move out and move your family in.

This one is going to get a good test for a sim of mine with said sizeable inheritance soon. I love the design and am totally awed - I could never do anything that good!

Edit: I love it. Feels very real and fits my sim well.
