@lily,  there was a lighting issue with the bathroom. I added a light but it would still be dark.

For me I didn't like the look from the curb. I think it was just a personal thing but I did like The entryway. I really liked the clothes and shoe racks in the lounge and all the selfs in the laundry. And the garage was probably the best part.

@Zapkid,  the exterior was appealing but the foyer looks way to dark. I think there could've been a bit more decor in the living room as it seems very bare.

@Rachel, I thought the front looked kind of messy with the sand all over the lot. I didn't like all the white but I did like the bedroom.

@Sassy, I quite liked your build.  I definitely think a rug in front of the stereo would help. I think the pool area was brilliant but the pool looked out of place.

@Ausette, you won. I think that says it all.

Congratulation Ausette and Agneza! Your builds were so different in style but similary wonderfull in execution and overall impression, very well deserved victory!

I'm open for suggestions, and will try to wrote detailed comments on each submission tomorow, I'm way too tired for it now :)

EDIT: To avouid doublepost I'll add comments here:)

@Ausette:  I wasn't expecting traditional home for Anette but when I carefully reread abouther it became so clear!It is soo charming and harmonious it will most certainly encourage positive change in any Sim Lifestyle and couchpotato/cook/partyanimal IS an association for a lady who would bake tons of cakes and huge meals for friendly neighboors - hence her weight! I could see her hosting a wild tea party in this house LOL and that cute gym will most certanly encourage fitness:) I love details like books in the kitchen as healthy recipes,  not to mention how great the patterns are!

@Gogo: Very different style for the same Sim as Ausette, and more what I expected for her. I love how you included the fontain features with the pool, and the floral pattern you used, only thing that didn't appeal to me that much is dominant grey outside and mostly covered patio - but that is personal preference. It is a wonderful beach house, great job on it!

@Sassy, I love how you present your submission! It was so fun to read and get to know it! I'm loving the stairs and entrance, and specially the covered  but still open pool! Her office is perfect and sand around pool wonderful addition! It is really a great house and you should be proud of it!

@Agneza (She said she is always open for comments but I really want just to praise her work  ;D ) - When I saw your submission I just had to get it in my game - Love the use of CFE cheat and the idea of half in ground half above home is brilliant - adds a room for tomb, security for coward and multileveling is always appealing to me, as usual your buildings are leaving me speachless with all the details and amazing use of patterns and collors.

@ratchie - WOW you made the wonderful modern build (I'm affraid to even try it anymore) I love the stone base you used and it all looks very neat and easy to manage - perfect for the theme you chose, and adding the displeys was brilliant! You could chose decorations more business oriented, and rock garden with dirt ground could be less paralel - I'm curius why you haven't used any plants there. Still, I love this house and I'm shore Sims will love it too! You did fantastic job on it!

@ZapKid - You know you're great with modern so you went in a safe direction. I like most of it, but landscape looked depriciated instead of simple, and those double walls made the inside too dark and closed sort of. Still, it is a great house and carring your recognizable signature style:)

@Lily, First I was happy to see a build for Aaron, and second, From the outside it may be the most appealing house in this contest! I love all the details you used, multileveling and sharp edges, maybe the walls seem too bright and empty in a contrast to the outside, but I'm loving every part of that house! Wonderful(as usual too hehehe).

So for everyone, I liked how this turned out, it gave us the freedom to think of any style we could associate with any of the Sims, which wasn't easy to decide! I'm hoping to hear comments on the building I submitted and looking forward to future contests!

Thank you. I wanted to try a modern build and I too was surprised how different Ausette and I styled Annette's house.

I'll post tomorrow on your build Anushka, I need a rest.

I'm very happy to share the first place with Ausette and I honestly congrats to her ! I feel much better to be in company. It would be nice if I could change the name "Agnesa's creative office" to the " A & A Creative Company". Thanks to everybody who voted for me and a big compliment to every partecipant. I really enjoyed so much looking at Your excellent works. I had lot of problems with my entry and I thought I'll give up, now I'm glad I didn't.

Thank You Thomas for great contest ideas.
