New House!



---Modern Wooded Jigsaw
Price:- §164,159 - Furnished and §133,687
Lot Built On:- 74 Landgraab Avenue, Sunset Valley.
Lot Size:- 30x40
Content:- World Adventures, Late Night and Ambitions/
Details:- This modern home fits together like a Jigsaw, it slots together, although a jagged mess on the outside it has smooth airy rooms on the inside, it features it's own pool and has a spare Attic for any Guests or Butlers. The House is secluded and the only entrance to the property is through the front door. The House has yet to be furnished but already has an Outdoor Lighting System installed, the Landscaping has also been done by the Contractors they have also added a few decorative touches around the outside of the Building.

Front - Day:



I really really love this lot. I am searching for a modern, minimal building that can double over for an office complex and this looks oh-so-very-perfect. What are the chances of this lot being functioncal with only base game content?

The actual shell only uses Base Game I think. The only stuff I used EP content for would be the landscaping, some plants and the exterior buydebug lighting. Everything else should be pretty close to the original. The trees might be LN but there are Base Game ones that are similar.

Price: $64,040
Lot Size: 30 x 30
Content: Base Game, LN, Generations, Pets, Supernatural. No store or CC.

An unfinished office building. Basement garage, ground floor offices, and a roof area for staff parties. Six office rooms, and reception. Two bathroom areas and room for a kitchen area.

Note: The dustbin relocates to the side of the 'driveway', it was originally in the garage next to the elevator. Rooms are taller than usual due to CFE cheat. Only the reception was furnished.

Spiffy idea here! I've already downloaded a few houses. Perhaps I'll toss up a few of my creations for people to go wild with. I always have the worst time decorating, usually I just plunk down whatever my sims need with some semblance of order.

Susinok linked a houseplan site with antique houseplans which totally inspired me today.  I saw the following:

http://www.antiquehome.org/House-Plans/1903-Radford/03r-538.htm

And built it:

Price: 53,264
Size: 30x30
Content: Base Game, Ambitions (clothesline), Generations (treehouse and wedding arch), Supernatural (doors), Seasons (doors)

The house includes a basement.  This was built in Sunset Valley at 99 Landgraab Avenue.  Landscaping reflects Sunset Valley.








The main floor has a living room, dinning room, kitchen (at the back) and a study/music room (front corner).  There's also a bathroom on this floor.



The upper floor has three bedrooms (one with attached bath) and a shared bathroom.



I leave the furnishing to individuals as I'll be using a fair amount of CC in mine.  Enjoy!

Lunaura's request:

Price: 173,736
Size: 40x40
Content: Base Game, Pets, Seasons, Generations, Late Night, Supernatural.

I don't have any screenshots, but this is the 'ruined' castle built for Lunaura. It's just an empty shell since I'm not very good at interior design.

Hi WickedSimmer87

I didn't take any screenshots because I had guests staying with me while I was building it, and didn't have enough time to build the house and then fiddle with screenshots and uploading and organising them in the gallery. If I get the chance, I may go back and take screenshots and upload them, but it won't happen this week.

Something fun for you guys to take however you'd like.

I'd imagine it'd function well as a club and a house at the same time. :P

The Scramble
Lot Size: 30 x 40
Cost: $ 39,239
Only requires base game!



A Rubik's Cube shell. Already has 4x4 'blocks' installed, but obviously can be removed. The windows were supposed to show the block separation, since I didn't have a wall paper that would frame the sides to make it look like a sticker.

The link to download can be found here. Above it is also my own furnished version.

cubesided .
Inspired by habitat67, a famous building in Canada.



Price:- §115,967 - Furnished and §113,737
Lot Built On:-  433 Sunnyside Blvd.
Lot Size:- 30x30
Content:- World Adventures, Late Night (windows), Generations (staircases)
Details: Built as a modern beach house, this lot is perfect for a growing family with kids. Every room is based off some sort of square or rectangle. Contains several balconies to be taken advantage of. Has a small 'atrium' in the middle of the floorplan. While it may look very spacious, as you decorate you may notice you have less space than you bargained for. Features a sandy backyard with angular pools.

Overall this house was created by experimenting with different shapes. I am going to furnish it eventually and make it part of my 'cube' collection (See 'The Scramble, Rubiks Cube House for some ideas). However actually furnishing this house is a bit of a pain due to the strange angles. I've already given some perimeters of how I expect the house to be laid out, however these are just guidelines so feel free to re-plan however you'd like.

First Floor


Second Floor


Third Floor

habitat 67.501
Still inspired by habitat 67, if you couldn't tell by the name. :P


Price: 157,448 unfurnished, 167,873 furnished
Lot Built on: 280 Sunnyside Blvd
Lot Size: 40 x 30
Content: Only Latenight. (Triplechecked)
Details This time, built to even closer resemble Habitat 67. This particular 'apartment'/'townhouse' feature has three houses, however they connect completely and entirely by balconies. They have their own communal washroom for quick showers and rinses after the pool, along with much space for playgrounds or gardens. Also has a two-car garage feature.
Lighting is already done for you on the exterior.

** the floorplan's rooms are black for easier distinction. Comes with wooden floors.
** after another sweep, I realized I left out one wall in this shell (not sure how that happened), its on the fourth floor.

*** installed with regular stairs, however spiral staircases are much more ideal. Built with those without Generations in mind so that it is still completely furnishable otherwise.

Ohmigod, thank you, Samoht, for the Summer Palace! It's beautiful, and my Sims, Chopper and Harli, love it!  It was a challenge to furnish, mostly because I've never furnished a home from scratch before. Seriously, thank you. I hate building, but I love redecorating and furnishing. This is ideal.

Also, I have a question. What happens if I were to download one of these shells that has windows or something from an expansion I don't yet own? I've heard rumors that it's just removed for you to replace with whatever. Is this true?

It'll actually replace the windows with something similar that you do own.

Thank you!

Really, all I did was spam the 'room' tool in wall building, and when they didn't make a nice roof to connect I just placed arches everywhere. It's really easy and fun to see what you end up with!
