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.

You're welcome!  :)

I love these houses, I'm not that good at building, but I love playing around and decorating. 
Something that I would like to know how to fix is some of the photos are not showing up; such as in Neashsleigh's Celebritry Living shell.  There is just an x and an empty spot where each photo should be at.

I asked for room ideas earlier for my immortal dynasty manor and a few people asked for me to upload the shell. Hope I do this right   :P

EDIT: I have World Adventures and Ambitions
EDIT2: And, thanks to a late anniversary present from my husband, I now have Generations :)

I took the castle found in Isla Paradiso, and I gutted it. It was the reason why many people decided to get it. Now, it is mostly vanilla. I know some doors/windows/stairs/and fences are from IP, but I believe you can manage, correct? It is a complex and beautiful home. Now available to decorate do your heart's desire! I wonder how it would look as a minimalistic fort. A grand total of 27 rooms!

I'm curious,

I have downloaded the castle but haven't installed IP yet.  Waiting until the grandkids go back home before I do so.  Will the items from IP not show up because I have yet to install or will the programing add it to them after I have downloaded the game.  I guess I should have waited, but I really like it and am thinking it would be a nice home to have for one of my project families. 
I can always remove it and reinstall although I don't want to unless I have to.

I don't think the objects will get replaced with the IP stuff. The only IP stuff is fencing, windows, doors, and stairs. And maybe I missed a wall sconce or two. I'm giving it a modern makeover which is a huge pain. But I want a fortress fortitude!

In my experience, items will only be replaced if you dont have the required expension pack, and wont be "filled in" if the pack is installed. :)

I've had a couple that I downloaded that the items were left blank.  The cabinets in the kitchen in one house along with a chair in the front room.   The bed and dresser I think was left out in another house, along with something else, don't remember what.  It wasn't a big deal they were easily replaced. 

I was just hoping, but not expecting, that since they would be added back when I placed it.  Knew it was a long shot but still had my fingers crossed it could be. 
Oh well, I will just uninstall it and then re-download it after I install the game, probably today, they just left to go home.  Didn't have too many problems with the kids until mom and dad showed up.

@Nodara, this is for building shells, like empty houses. Your house doesn't fit in here, but the museum does. Thanks!

Aww snap! You got there before me :P


@Nodara : As Swirl-girl said, this thread is for empty houses :) Furnished lots are to be uploaded on the swap shop :) Also for the lots, we need to know what packages and/or store items used for each build. If you have any problems about what we mean, just look at this link : http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/forum/index.php/topic,3614.0.html

Please read and modify your posts :) Thank you

Spanish Summer

This house was loosly designed from John B. Scholz's architecture found here. I adapted it and made it my own with many changes. Whilst this is just a shell, I have done all the landscaping and added a few items such as a Fireplace and some lighting.

Some plants from Sunlit Tides were used as was the terrain paint from Monte Vista. Other store items include:

Dr. Prosper's Glowing Orb - wall light
Portal to Paradise - door
Let the sunshine in Window - window
Haute Hacienda Dining Room - Artful Adobe... - archway
Kingdom of Cambodia Bedroom - The Fire Place
Aphrodite's End Table
Corinthian Window

Lot Size: 64x64
Lot Cost: Unsure.. will advise
Expansions used: SN, Pets, IP, LN, WA, ST, Gen, Amb

I  like the looks of it, but I have only half of the expansion packs.  I am going to download it anyhow and see what shows up and what doesn't.  Usually it is empty, such as kitchen cabinets or a chair, so I figure I can just put something in from the expansion packs I have.

Heya :)

If you're referring to my above lot, I think most of the expansions used were for things like plants, terrain paints etc. I noticed that I had forgotten to remove the deck chairs near the pool on the raised bit behind the waterfalls, so there's those as well, but the rest of the house is unfurnished except for some lighting around the external. There are some plants and terrain paints used from a couple of store bought worlds as well. If you don't have those, I think the game will automatically replace them with a proxy.

@Neashaleigh

I'm not sure what I see as missing, since I don't know what to look for  ;)  Anyhow, I love the looks of it.  I don't know which rooms you had planned for what, so I doubt I see it the way you planned it. 
I did do some changes, put up a couple of walls, took the room that has the long walkway and put in a fireplace and made it a bedroom.  The room that is before you enter the walkway, I took out the section that has the curves (can't think of what to call it), I took that down, added a straight wall that let me have a entrance to the walkway and closed in that room.  I placed another fireplace there, some chairs, a tv and made it a rec type room for the upstairs.  Before you enter it, I put the alchemy station (temp, just until I decide if I want one on not) a chess table, reading area, and foosball table. 
The first floor, where the two arches are on the left, I put some nice couches, chairs and coffee tables, the room on the other side will be the kitchen and dining room.  I took the half wall section (right side of the house) and put there a stereo, bookshelves, chairs to make a relaxation area.  The small indent near it I placed a tv, couch and chairs. 
What I put in the rooms are markers that are to give me an idea of space, It will  change when I am ready to set it up as a home. I'm not sure how many bedrooms you had planned, but from what I can figure, I can get three bedrooms with attached bathrooms.

It is a beautifully built and designed home that I am going to have fun using in a game.  Maybe a project story if it's okay that I use it for that.  It will fit in perfect in MV for a new home for a town jump. 
When I get it all set up and ready for use I will put it on the showboat thread and cross my fingers you are okay with what I have done to the house.

Wow that all sounds fantastic! I'm currently furnishing my version of it as we speak :) And yes, I'm absolutely happy for you to do whatever you like with the house! That's why I share them ;) I look forward to seeing pics of what you've done. I'm intrigued!

Neashaleigh, Spanish Summer is a beautiful house. I don't have a lot to put in on in my current game but well use in the next game.
