I've never entered a competition before so I'm nervous! I used to post a long time agp but then I got too ill to do much and i just spent 15 of the last 18 months in hospital. The upshot of that was the loss of one leg above the knee so now I have plenty of time!
So without further ado meet my Wilsons - Bob and Mel. Mel wants to have a family but she also has a great thirst for knowledge. Bob is often seen skilling but when asked about his job he will only say "I could tell you but then I'd have to recruit you".
They are both looking forward to this fresh start in their new home and the birth of their first child.
I'm not sure if I understand about uploading images so hopefully this will work. Not that the photography is any good. I don't think I'm a very visual person but hopefully I can learn from the competition same goes for my less than stellar building skills! LOL All and any tips gratefully received.

@scottiedoag Hi. Wow, that is quite something to have to go through. Don't be nervous, everyone is welcome.

First thing is to put all but the first shot under spoiler tags. Take a look at the other entries and you will see how they only show the first picture. This keeps the thread tidy and helps it to load faster.

Do you know how to make spoiler tags?

Just in case you don't, here's how. [spoiler] Pictures in here [#spoiler] Just remove that # symbol and replace it with the slash /

Your pictures are good enough for me to say welcome to the contest, your application is approved.

Hi
Yep joandsarah77 I spotted what i'd done wrong with the spoiler thing. I googled then copy and pasted the answer but forgot to remove the spaces. I'm blaming my pain meds and I'm sticking to that story.
Thank you Rosebine. There are a lot of stone buildings here not exactly like this but close enough. I'm trying to replicate them in a sims 3 town I'm cawing but that's another story entirely!

@Rosebine They were coming up as .bmp and are 1280 x 800 (I have to check the size, but I think that is A-OK)

@joandsarash77 Thank you for the tips. I am figuring things out thanks to everyone being so nice with beginners! It's appreciated.

@Voeille Thank you for the tip! I'm getting there with the photos and am excited to at least share my "box" (even if I have to re-do/cannot join), since everyone has helped me get this far!

This is partly why I made this a foundation challenge, so that anyone new to building has a starting shape that isn't a box.

This was fun to work on (using no CC! Woo!) and boy-oh-boy have I learned so much in just a few days already! I'm ready to learn more. I'm submitting a house for application/entry.

I've finally managed to find out about a contest before it's too late! I'm super excited about this, the foundation challenges have always looked like fun.

I really hate starter houses...

That being said, here's my practically starter house





Yes, I know I could have had more pics, but I didn't really feel like there were anymore I could take, lol.

Welcome @justJones

New photo rules up.
These will help the judges see if the foundation is there and the roof and garden more clearly.
If you can add the required shots to your entry.

~ Thanks

@Voeille: How do you hide stuff in walls?

I really like your house, it looks very modern!

Thank you, Rosebine! Everyone's homes are awesome, I would download every single one. I'm so surprised at how different they are turning out. It's hard to find starter homes under a "starter budget" with no CC even (*gasp*), so these are making my grabby hands go crazy!
Doing all the things, and *mostly* not failing.

I've got mine almost finished, but for the sake of the newbies, I'm going to wait until tomorrow evening to continue working on it. If I don't make it in before you get your 20, I think I'll just do mine as a play-along.

Working on a set of Private Schools. Will you help me name them?

I see I am not on the list of contestants. Did I do something wrong?

Wow .. it filled up fast. I think with Sweet Mystre and Aysarth's entries that comes to 20.

Don't suppose you wanna go to 25 do ya Jo :D

#172 Old 13th Apr 2017 at 8:42 AM
At the rate this contest is going, we might wind up with 30! I haven't seen this popular a contest in some time.

While I'm not a judge, i didn't see any correction for Aysarth that would delay the entry. So that would indeed make 20?

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.

@Sweet Mystre Welcome to the contest.

Sorry @Aysarth I missed your post. I am adding you now. Welcome to the contest.

And that closes the table, 3 days and we are full!

Sorry CaliBrat. :/ I don't think I am allowed to go above 20 because of the judges. It takes quite a bit of work looking things over, writing up notes. But do feel free to play along. If enough want to play along I will make a 'Play Along' table.

I did my lot .. lol, did two of them actually as I wasn't sure if I liked the first one enough. When it came time to take the pics I was able to use Fraps to take them ok, but then my Paintshop Pro kept givin me issues as it did the other day. Don't know what's wrong with it other than after bein in it for a few minutes it'd crash. I may hafta uninstall it and reinstall it and see if that works.

No worries ... that's just how it goes sometimes.

Maybe when this one is over since it was such a big hit (at least here at the beginnin .. lol) ya might do another shortly after this one is over.

@joandsarah77 I wasn't sure if I needed to add a back shot of my lot. I added the diagonal back shot I have right now. If I need another, please do let me know and I'll take a blunt back shot of it to replace it. I did include the one of the foundation to show nothing was added or subtracted.
