Witch - the imgur thing isn't you, it is the links used. The direct links I originally grabbed didn't have the .jpg afterwards.

No, that's not it, I still can't see any of your images in either post. I have no other blockers I don't think, checking now. Might be an ad block issue.

ETA: Yep, ad block. Somehow i.imagur is registered as an ad site. I have disabled for MATY. Very nice lots, Skadi. I like SJ's lot and Jesslla's Victorian house, but boy oh boy, I just LOVE ReRybka's house. I know a wee bit about sims building and I can see real expertise here. Oh, the grey/blue and white house is really cool too.

Jesslla I hope the poll will allow us to choose more than one house to vote for?

BTW I am finding the colour scheme really restricting. One of the things I like about building is the exploration of colour as the scheme evolves through the process.

I figure you'll be able to choose up to three houses in the poll.

The color scheme thing has turned out to be a lot more annoying than I thought it would be. But I don't want to get rid of it halfway through the challenge, so how about this. Pick a color scheme (and one extra color) and use any of the shades on the slider part of the color wheel (like when you choose a skin tone). This way you have a theme of colors, but aren't stuck using specific shades.

Nah, I think you're right, leave it as is in its entirety. Saying to choose a range of colours will only be unfair to those who designed within the guidelines. I do have a house half-finished, I'm sure I can cope, and it's supposed to be a challenge anyway.

Thank you everyone for your compliments! Building and designing are my favorite things about the Sims. While the color scheme rule is restricting, I'm actually really enjoying the challenge of it, because it forces me to be more experimental with how I decorate (like using patterns on things that are usually wood like the desk, or not using the default patterns on objects). I like the money limit, too, because it's harder to make the cheap stuff look nice.

There are a lot of really nice designs on the thread so far. I love seeing what people come up with because it gives me ideas I hadn't thought of before. Can't wait to see what else is submitted!

I've got one more house I'm working on, but that's going to have to be it for me. I MUST study for exams if I expect to complete this law school venture.  Cheesy

You all are doing some wonderful builds, and it is fun that they vary so much. There should be a challenge for houseboats when IP comes out.   Smiley

This lot is a fishersims dream come true! Situated over a pond teeming with rare and unusual fish the house is safe from floods and you get a good workout climbing up and down those stairs.

I would have to agree. It's unfair to relax a restriction partway into the challenge.

And that's coming from someone who expects to be heavily dinged on that restriction for my first entry.  Architecturally, my Breeder Shack stays true to the "Cozy Comfortable" color scheme. Everything is done in white, light grey, and light wood tones, except for a splash of color in the master bedroom.  However, I didn't stick to the color scheme on furnishings, throwing together a mismatched ramshackle look instead. Hey, it's a cheap-ass oversized shack.

I'm working on a second entry now, and I promise to pay more attention to the color scheme this time.

I'm impressed. There are lots of really good ideas here to steal be inspired by and use in future projects. But for now, here's my second entry: 10 Navy Lane. It's a simple, two bedroom house on a 10x10 lot, with room for a family of four. Wanded and slightly worn, it fetches a price of 16,482 furnished or 12,812 unfurnished.

My thoughts exactly! I've been snatching up most of the entries.

I don't usually participate in these sorts of things, but I did actually put together an entry. However, 2 different entries look a lot like what I came up with independently... So now it would look like I ripped them off.  Undecided Back to the drawing board, I guess!

Let's face it, there are a limited number of options for small houses in the sims. So what if some are similar? Your own use of accessories and colour etc will still make an individual house.

It doesn't matter if they are similarly themed, the more the merrier! At least then we could have a few of the same feel for sub-sections within a neighbourhood.
Though this is making me want to crack out the world builder again.

Post it! Hell, I ripped someone off with my victorian house. There's only so much you can do in a small lot, so eventually similar ideas show up.

Well, I think maybe I'm disqualified anyway since my furnished price is so high (no imaginary bonus points for me), but here we go:


10x10 flat lot
Furnished: $22,376
Unfurnished: $11,341
(Original inspiration from www.loftcube.net)

I used the "Fresh, Modern Living Space" palette of peacock blue/white/grey with the same pops of color that were in the reference photo (black, green, & magenta/red). I have all EPs & SPs except the Katy Perry one. I did play test a little, so there shouldn't be any major routing issues.

Grandma Murphy's Piece of Quiet

This is a three bedroomed house on a 20x15 lot. There is one car parking space beside it. Furnished it is 19,779, unfurnished 15,641.

I used the fresh modern living space theme with the blue and two greys. Ahem, when I say 'used' I mean that if you're prepared to play 'Where's Wally' ('Waldo' for Americans), you will indeed find all three colours in each room, some more than once. See, when Grandma moved in she couldn't bear to rip out all the lovely wood panelling just for a competition on a forum, so I had to be inventive with wallpaper. My accent colour is orange which will be rather obvious.

I made a family to playtest and haven't found any difficulties, except maybe the dining chair on the far end, a sim only used it once and had the plate on her lap instead of on the table. Oddly enough the family I made bought the house and had about 1700 left, I don't know if famblies get more than 20K now?

So the story goes that Grandma finally found her 'piece of quiet' out in the suburbs, she was happy to retire and planned to spend her days trying new recipes and meeting the neighbours. Life was idyllic until the knock on her door one stormy night, Grandma's daughter Priscilla and Priscilla's four children were shivering on the porch with nowhere else to go. What else could a poor grandmother do but invite them all in to stay? Six people, one upstairs bathroom, will Grandma retain her sanity?



























Download lot.

Download lot with Grandma and her fambly.
The children are twins, the toddlers are not supposed to be, but CAS won't let you make babbies. I was tempted to make Priscilla pregnant as well, but relented. Cheesy

You will need to find a fileshare site, like Dropbox or Mediafire or Mega. If you don't have an account with one, you will have to make an account (don't use your real name) and then upload your house to that site. Then you can get a link to share your download. Put that link in your post.
