THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Ok then, here goes. Compared to Phoenixc's stuff, I'm kinda embarrassed to even post this but what the hell. I shall not scorn the generous help I was given.

This first house is modern, but family friendly. It is a 2 bedroom with 1 bath on a 30 x 30 lot. The 2nd bedroom has been set up for a baby, there is a fenced pool, a children's play area and a as yet un-started garden area. The living area is sunken (and if anybody could tell me why the heck it stays dark as sin with out lots of lights, even if there is no roof over that area, I would appreciate it! I scrapped my first idea of a greenhouse type area because of the darn darkness!)

The cost is $69 915 furnished or $32 495 not. Wanded http://www.4shared.com/file/z65Vj3B8/1_Creative_Way.html

Although I love modern, I was feeling rather minimalistic on the day I created it, so it's all white walls with blue accents but there's also a softness, in the bits of wood used, and in the rounded shapes of the desk and the plushness of the dining chairs to add warmth. I usually prefer lots and lots more colour.

Oh, and I've rather ironically named it 1 Creative Way. (laughs at self over this)








Oops, sorry about the random horse. I actually have the horses set to off in the filter, but gee, them thar filters don't seem to be working right. Who would've ever thought?

Edited to add the price and a link for the darn thing! I was so nervous about getting the darn pics right I forgot vital info.

Ok, for my second submission I have, still going with the ironic names theme, 2 Creative Way.

This is a 2 bed, 1 bath beach bungalow on a 20 x 30 lot. It features large decks with a pool, fire pit, a bar for both those outdoor parties and practicing your bartending and a dance area. Inside the house there is wood flooring and it features the calm greys  and blues of the beach, with bright pink and orange accents in the bedrooms. The second bedroom has been decorated for a teen girl.

The cost is $30 250 furnished or $18 972 not. Wanded.

Here's my entry. I started this challenge three separate times before finally getting this together. Since there were no limits on cost, I decorated with expensive things. :p I like to keep my sims in luxury.

642 Quiet Horse Niche
30x30 lot
$127,800 Furnished ($60,406 unfurnished)

(cleaned .sims3pack)

I have all EPs & SPs and used plenty of store stuff.

I hope I'm not too late! I just finished my house, will update in a few minutes.

ETA: I'm having problems getting it to actually post. I think I need to resize the pictures again or something, but I'm giving up and going to bed now. I will try again tomorrow.

Here in Kofistan the date is now June 1 and voting is due to begin. However, I'm curious to see what Ellatrue has come up with. Should I bend the rules a bit and wait with adding the poll until she's had the chance to post her entry?

I'd also like to say that I'm really impressed with all the entries. I never finished my house (I blame an unexpected IRL kitchen refurbishment that somehow just happened in my home last week and has had me spending most of my free time on a ladder with a paintbrush in my hand rather than in front of the computer) but looking at the other entries that may be just as well. You have made better designs, anyway.

In my opinion, yes. But only for one day. Even if she/he had enough time to post...

10 Magnolia Lane
Price: $81,004 (wanded, I think - I couldn't tell if it worked)
Lot size: 20x20
3 bed/4 bath + nursery.
DOWNLOAD: http://www.mediafire.com/?5x2c74t3s347zh6

I had a vaguely Victorian vision for this house, and I like to play with large families, so it's furnished accordingly. I playtested this pretty extensively with a family of seven plus a cat. It plays really well, and I made sure the sims are able to use *all* of the objects (except the small pool in the basement, but that's easily fixed if you actually want to use it for more than decoration). The central greenhouse area actually has a floor so the sims won't get the "unfinished room" moodlet; I made it dirt colored and used moveObjects to place the plants.

Front and Side views:


There's also a tree house in back, and a couple apple trees.

First Floor:




Second Floor:






Basement:






I tried to make the children's and teens' rooms look as cluttered with random things as they are in real life. The adult bedroom is neater.

I went through and cropped/resized all of these in photobucket, but the changes only seemed to stick with one of them. Go figure.

It's so hard to choose! Thank you for letting me participate after I screwed up the entry, it was pretty discouraging after working so hard on the house.

Something interesting, I hope.

Thanks for this ReRybka, it was a fun challenge.

ETA: In case anyone was wondering, the alien sims are doing well in the hood. In fact they've gone a bit native and abandoned their spacesuits and duties. What is even worse is their discussion about removing their contraceptive implants and having a family. Let's hope the mothership doesn't return any time this generation.
