Didn't we come across similar issues during your last build contest regarding google docs? Anyway, I'm so glad I got back from my trip in time to join. Armi coming out of retirement just gives me one more reason to kick ass and take names.
Also: We should totally get extra points for sucking up. Just saying. (Hi SeeMyu! How are you? Love what you've done with your hair. TVR your Ziggy Atkins never fails to cheer me up on a bad day. That bio is fantastic and he's just so adorable.)
Without much further ado, I give you the Meadow Family Home. A small, two bedroom family home for Ren Meadow and his new family. He married his beautiful wife, Zahara at a small beach ceremony only a few years after meeting her at college, and less than a year later they welcomed their baby girl Sarah into their lives. Ren inherited his new home from his grandmother not long ago but he and Zahara are very quickly making the house into a home, and are slowly replacing the nature photos favoured by Ren's grandmother with photos of their own growing family.
The Exterior keeps much of its old world charm, located in scenic skaggit valley in Washington State. The green is a colour favoured by both Ren's grandmother and his new wife and so it stayed when they moved in. The window frames and doors have all been replaced, but made to look worn. The fence and porch supports however are completely new. Nothing but the best for the new Meadow girls. The various flower bushes and roses were all mostly there but in terrible condition. Under Zahara's green thumb however they have found new life and flourished like never before. Pruning may be needed if they continue to grow at their current rate.

Ren's study area where he does much of his writing, inspired (or distracted) by the photos of his wedding, and of his baby girl.
The living room is a bit more cluttered than the rest of the house, but thats because its the most used room in the house. Between little Sarah's outerwear hanging at the ready behind the couch and (more) of Ren's totally necessary writing exercise books. The living room also holds my absolutely favourite portrait, its from Qbuilderz' Match Things! painting set. Oh its just such a life saver and its so beautiful. Qbuilderz is such a fantastic creator.
My favourite "room" is also the room thats holds the most of Ren and Zahara's personality. Quiet and traditional with a bright splash of a colour to make everyday meals much more fun.
The upstairs fall way is pretty basic, but another one of Qbuilderz' fantastic paintings just ties the whole room together. Isn't it beautiful? I love it.
Ren and Zahara's bedroom is decorated with their respective favourite colours, with the lighter wood of the bed being carried throughout the rest of the house. Their favourite wedding photos hangs framed above their bed.

Sarah's bedroom is much more colourful, with a few scattered toys and a rocking chair for bed time cuddles.
Also: She has a princess bed. It is awesome.
Hope you enjoyed and thank you for reading.
Various items from the sims 3 store, item of note being the curtains from the faire folk collection which are scattered throughout the house.

Edit [July 28]: Added overhead view of roof because I was derpy and forgot it the first time around.
