The house is a small family home, that can house 3 people. The style is, um, very much me-like I guess. :D
I wanted to stay in some sort of color scheme, so especially exterior has been colored with Autumn colors. The interior varies more, while all tones have been broken down. Everything is CASTed, if I missed something you may spank me!
The lot has been built in the middle of some hilly terrain. There are three levels, two of which can be entered from the outside.
Landscape is rich with flowers and bushes, as well as colorful trees, and rock formations (this was my kid's idea btw!).
Cause the house sits in such a "hole" it has nice privacy on it's own, without too many additional things needed to block the view from nosy sims.
Back side of the lot sits on a more level terrain, so there is a fence to keep those pesky wild animals out from the garden.
In addition to a pond that houses some frogs, the back yard also has a small barbecue area as well as a swing for kid(s). Some pigeons have found their way in, probably in hopes for breadcrumbs.
The right side of the lot has been fenced in as well. A large tree has been growing for tens of years, to give the house more privacy. As a downside it tends to drop A LOT of leafs in the fall!
View from the road allows other sims a peak into the architecture of the house, but not too much more. There are lots of wild flowers and bushes on the lot, and they have been left to grow in peace.
The curb appeal gives a promise of a nice and peaceful environment, that sims can enjoy day after day.
The overview of the lot shows the layout and landscaping a bit more.
The mainfloor of the building has a wrap-around porch with some room for sitting and enjoying afternoon tea.
The entry hall is small, and can be accessed from two sides. The combined kitchen-diningroom is the heart of the house.
There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a hall on second floor, that is accessed from the kitchen-diningroom, The rooms are small, but cozy.
Basement floor is mostly the kingdom of the male sim living in the house. A fully equipped (well, I was told a bike holder would have been nice) workshop for a bike-enthusiastic man of the house, as well as a livingroom with modern-day treats to entertain the whole family guarantee hours and hours or activities for the man of the house. There is also a laundryroom with a toilet, so I guess at least something for the ladies as well. And no, don't make this any equalism thing, it's just the way I wanted to build the house!
This is just a proof of concept picture, to show that the foundation was only altered within the rules.
Angled exterior shots
These shots serve the sole purpose of showing the lot better.
Angled floorplan shots
These pictures have just one purpose as well: to show the interior layout and furnishing better.
Here are some interior shots of the house.
View from the dining area to the stairs and entrance hall.
View from the stairs to the kitchen and dining area.
Entrance hall viewed from the kitchen.
Master bedroom with all the lovely green tones. Not too much space, but who needs that in a bedroom anyways, as long as the bed is comfy!
Another view of the master bedroom.
Kid's room. Tiny, cozy, just about enough space to rot a brain on the PC.
Second floor bathroom.
Livingroom, the entertainment center of the house.
Bike-shop (work shop). Everything the man of the house needs to maintain his bike, well, except that bike holder. Too bad!
Bushes, rocks, trees, terrain paint. Something a Finn likes the best. Most of the bushes have been recolored, because a.) I like 'em better now, and b.) because of bushes!
Goddamnit, spank me! I forgot to CAST that darned trash bin! :D
Yeap, moar pictures of bushes. I guess the house is a little visible on the pic as well.
Pigeons lurking for breadcrumbs.
The terrace sitting area, and a view to the backyard.
Pond. There are some frogs (did you know they jump on the water like fishes?! Silly EA... ) and sunken rocks.
Architecture shots without plants
Again some one purpose pics, this time - Architecture! The landscaping has been mostly removed for these pics, so I could show the architecture of the house better.
I hope you enjoyed the pics, as much as I hated taking them and writing all the captions! :D
The lot has been playtested as well, with no issues except some sims screaming frustrated when I MO'd them into the closed basement area that is not part of livable house, so I could build and huffle around in peace!
Custom content by me (DIY columns, terrain paints, plant recolors), HP (pink flower), Granthes (OMSP), NaiyasFury (BRAMBLES!!!).
Mods by Buzz, Velocitygrass, Granthes, and HP used when building.
Also thanks to Buzz for nitpicking with the exterior colors (and feedback as well as support too!), and my kid for mentioning that certain spots need rocks. Cutsocks for the roof ends tut.
And how could I forget Mr. Qbie for giving me such a headache on what the heck to do with this lot! And for being an ossim contest host too!
