This is a great idea and just what I need.
My building skills are bad and my landscaping is even worse. My houses always just looked slapped together and usually never even have a tree.

But I'm usually pleased with the inside. Guess that's why I always play with the walls down so I can't see the house I built. :)
A clear conscience is usually a sign of a bad memory.

Love this idea! I totally adored the Old Jade Dynasty house, so it'd be cool to have it. :)

I'm not 100% sure if we are on about the same House here, the one I was talking about was only just built and in building it caused the end of my Dynasty by losing the portrait. Did you mean that one or the one before it? I don't think I have the one before it... I have loads of Jade Files and I will see, I don't remember where or if I had any pictures of the house I meant. I will move the Files into my game, I should be able to guess, if there are any toddlers in the Family then it will be the oldold house for sure.

I meant the one in the last few chapters.

Ah Okay, I still wouldn't mind seeing if I still have that old house as well though.  :)

The Old Jade Dynasty House (House Build - Number 3)

Now this one was never really completed, the inside was furnished and all but the outside never really was developed that much, Diana Jade only got a few of her Plants planted, she was in the process of getting the Perfects out of the plants she had, although her Money Trees survived. I have weeded out all of the WA Plants I think, as well as most if not all of the extra Expansion Content so fingers crossed it should be 100% Base Game and 95% Unfurnished! Apart from some Sprinklers and Lights in the Basement, the Sprinklers may or may not be upgraded, I remember having Janna Jade upgrade them but I don't remember if she did all of them. There is also a Deathfish Spawner possibly in the Pond.

The House is on the Legacy Lot so 60x60. I am stupid and forgot the price of it so sorry about that!



Main Floor: In the centre of the floor you will see a dark central room with a few dark lines, those lines are Half Walls, uhg are they only in LN or did everyone get them with a patch? I'll edit them out if not. Anyway there is a gap between there and the next room, that is where I had my mixology area, so the barman was in the Kitchen but the drinkers were in the dining area.



Upstairs:



Basement: (Considering this was a Dynasty the reason for only 6 Rooms down there is because I had put all of the Portraits/Sculptures where the last two rooms were supposed to go whilst I sorted the stuff, although sorting the stuff made me realise my failure of losing the Portrait of my Founder...)



Back Patio Area: This only exists for what lies below it...




Side Garden:



There is also a Garage with Four Parking Spaces inside and a Wide Driveway, I can't remember if there were any spaces on the Driveway but there probably is enough room for four outside.

I will also probably be uploading my full version of this House, one with the Museum and one without. Although my personal houses are very Store Content Heavy, I'll share a link for anyone who wanted to see how I decked mine out, the pictures won't be up for a few days though, this took ages to clear out!  :D

EDIT: Forgot to attach it... *facepalm*

Thanks Kiko! I'm the same as you, except I'm just too lazy to furnish!  ;D Well, it's just something I learnt by accident, the first layer is a Mansard Roof (The one that makes a floor with Roofing around the edge of it) and then I used another roof type just the square-based triangle average one on top of that floor then you can change the height of the top to give the roof a different shape, I can get some pictures if that would help you, I'm not very good with explaining things sometimes.  ;)

Fantastique! I love it, love it, love it! Thank you very much! :D

I'm glad you love it! No problem, I like it a lot and looking inside it and thinking that the furnishing in it is probably some of the best I have done... ever. Shame I lost the portrait, although it was turning into a Lag Monster.

Walker Dynasty House

Lot Size: 40x40
Price: Under $100,000 (I think about $80,000)

This House is done similar to the existing mansion type houses in Twinbrook, it was built for my new 'for fun' dynasty following the same characters as a story of mine. It is not done in my game (Furnishings wise) because I ran out of money, the structure is there but the garden is no where near done.

Front:


Back:


Main Floor:


Upstairs:


Attic:


Basement: (There is another Basement Level, the same size as this one but it doesn't need to be seen. The Basements isn't done.


This does feature Ambitions Content, although mainly just the Windows and the Trees outside.
