Inspired by the application foundation provided in a recent contest , I decided to make a small series of homes all under 25k with the same guidelines as the contest.
Retired hippie artists. They love finding odds and ends at flea markets. They need at least two bedrooms so they have a spare for guests.
Requirements A good size fruit and veg garden. A place to sew, paint and make pottery.
Wants A house/furniture made from plenty of recycled materials.
Random item The flamingo http://sims2-objectdefaults.dreamwidth.org/50074.html
Second time is the charm, I hope! The first came out a bit too heavy on the hippie side, so I think this one struck more of a balance for the eclectic Rhodes family. You will find they have plenty to do inside the home for those rainy days and late evenings with the bonus of a flower crafting bench and hydroponic garden, along with the items they wanted. Being a family that likes to frequent flea markets, you will find both bedrooms have little trinkets they have picked up here and there. The home also featured old wood floors, reclaimed brick, colored barn panels and weathered wood paneling to cater to their needs of recycled materials. You'll find they like to be connected to nature by letting ivy grow in the bedroom and the natural stone shower. The fridge and couch may be worn, but are still ever so useful even if they were "found" on the way home.
This home has:
All the requirements under the spoiler tag - 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom, garden plots, fruit tree, flamingos, and dedicated creative spaces for painting, pottery and sewing.
Fire alarm, burglar alarm and phone.
Small pond for fishing. (Bonus: No one will be able to steal your lawn gnome! )
Sitting area and backyard flower garden.
Compost bin and covered back porch.
No CC was used, but all EPs/SPs are installed.
I would suggest getting the wonderful Diagonal Easel Mod for the easel to be used in that position, but you can always straighten it and still have space to stand if you would rather not have that.
