I decided to take part on this contest just to see if I could still build stuff, and ended up building a tribute/sonate to HP's pink bushes.
I'm not so much of a story-teller, so I'm just going to let the pictures speak for themselves.The pictures may speak for themselves, but I still added some info about the lot with them as well. Word of warning though, I kinda went overboard with the pictures, so there is a TON of them. :D
The house is not a model home, I wanted to create something that would look like someone actually lived there. All though, I think my sims are a lot neater bunch than I am.
I also need to disappoint you guys. I sort of bet, at least most of you (who hadn't already seen this lot in chat) were totally expecting me to enter with something grungy. Nu'uh. Nope!
The front of the lot with relatively well kept driveway and flowerbeds. There is also a small um, thing for bike and trash bin and such.

Backside of the lot from outside the boundaries, showing the whole back of the lot.
Other side of the lot, with more flowers and... more flowers.
Overview, where you can see the lot layout, landscaping, and that the foundation/footprint of the house has not been modified/overlapped.
Groundfloor layout, also showing the non modified foundation shape/size. The house is rather small and cozy, with still enough room for living. The entrance of the house opens to a combined living-diningroom with attached kitchen that has an access to the back yard. There is also an additional sitting room for those who require more peace, and a well sized bathroom with separate toilet and another access to the backyard for laundry making.
From the downstairs sitting room you find stairs to the second floor, which is split to two levels. On the first there is a small office. Second floor houses a sitting room that also acts as a guest bedroom. There are also two bedrooms for the residents of the house.

Bike/trash bin-, stuff- thing.
Front yard with slightly stony walk way, lots of relatively well kept flowerbeds.
A view of the side of the yard, from outside the lot.
Backyard landscaping, with some garden plants that some one totally forgot to water. I guess the sims living in this house are a bit sloppy when it comes to stuff that bypassers can't see.
Another view of the backyard landscaping, showing the slight elevation the little hill creates.
These pictures are to give a better view of how the things look like inside.

That wasn't grungy at all, but still, thanks for your time!
The lot has been playtested with two sims living there for a couple of sim days. All of the stuff is accessible, unless I managed to forget to test some of them.
The foundation has not been altered, for any other but color and covering.
The lot was built using Only EP/SP content, my own terrain paints, and a couple of carefully selected mods that deserve recognizing. Big thanks for these mods for their creators!
Buzzler - Builder stuff. Needless to say this is a must have!
HP - LN camera mod, and of course the altered plants of which the pink flowers and tamed aspens are from.
Granthes - Curtain adjustment
Velocitygrass - Stencil removal mod
Qbie, thanksies for hosting yet another fun foundation contest! And darn you for not allowing to alter the height of the foundation for even landscapy purposes! :P
Everyone with entries, great job you all!
Everyone else, go on, take part, drown Qbie to entries since he wanted more than the last time! :D
