Default Round 2 Entry: Grunt
I finished my round 2 entry at the weekend, and let it sit for a few days before taking pictures, but here it is. For this round I chose the Grunts:

Quote:
The Grunt family A military family of four males. Father and widower General Buzz, teenage sons Tank and Ripp and child age Buck. Requirements: 3-4 bedrooms and something to keep fit that isn't a radio or TV. Bio's:The General likes to have his clocks set to military time. He used to enjoy barbershop quartet singing, but that is classified information. Tank Grunt wants to be just like his old man. He spends his days lifting heavy things, dodging imaginary bullets, and being bigger than the other guy, but deep down inside, he wonders if anyone really knows who he is. Ripp totally doesn't care what you think of him. He is going to do whatever he wants to do, which is mostly what everyone else is doing. More than anything else, Buck wants to be a pet stylist to the stars. He spends a lot of time wondering why his father never seems to notice him.



♫Cuz I don't have a home in this life, I have to roam. Got nowhere to lay my head, so I'll follow you instead, and set my gaze on the place I'm going to. Til then I'm homeless, but I'll roam with you...♫

I like the idea that General Grunt has somehow managed to set an analog clock to military time.

Round Two Entry: 2 Cover Up Road - Beaker


Quote:
The Beaker Family
This science and medical family consists of Loki, his wife Circe and the adult ‘boarder’, Nervous Subject.
Requirements: Nervous will require [his own room and Loki a lab of some kind.
Bios:
As soon as he perfects his latest invention, Loki is sure to get the recognition he knows he deserves. In the meantime, he keeps himself busy by trying to assemble a nuclear reactor out of common household items. Loki is employed as an inventor.
Circe knows 238 different ways to make someone scream, and none of them are nice. She enjoys taxidermy and collecting coat hangers.
Nervous' hobbies include twitching and blinking a lot. Not much is known about Nervous, but his only personality points are 10 active and zero everything else!


I went through so many versions of the layout of this place but I think I'm finally happy with it! The Beakers aren't a family I've played much, so getting to know them was very interesting. I prefer a much more colourful decorating style than what I feel suits them, so that was tricky! I did find their original house way too dark with all the stone, so I tried to at least lighten it with white while keeping low key and monochrome.

I felt like the other house on the hill in Strangetown would be a good fit for them, especially since it's on Cover Up Road. I wanted to pay a small homage to the original lot with the tower and white exterior, while still modifying and improving it for the new family. I also kept some of the crazy paving outside since that's such a feature of the original house for me!

ETA: I use a Perfect Plants mod, so any inaccessible plants won't become overgrown/die.



On to the detailed tour...


That was a long post, paring down 21 images to 12 is no joke! Now I can finally look at all of the other entries for this round

Thanks you guys! Even though they didn't originally have a cowplant I felt it really suited their research

@joandsarah77 - I'll be going right down to the wire this time, and posting my entry on Sunday evening. Have had lots of traumatic decorating issues in RL, and haven't had time to decorate for my Sims. I should hopefully get a chance to load up my game tomorrow, at which point I hope all those notes I've been jotting down translate into something useful.

hi! i've decided i'll move the smith family into the curious house;it looks so much different and family friendly now.

As you can see the house has gained a more...family friendly feel.

and it's still quite cheap!

Actually, @Emerald1234 you are missing your floor plan. It needs 1 shot of overall and 1 shot of the floor plan, the floor plan being the building not the surrounding garden. You need to zoom in until the walls of the house are nearly or just touching the edges of the picture. ~ Thanks.

That was excellent quick work, Emerald! Only five and a quarter hours from saying you'd start work on it to posting! I wish I could work so fast. It might be worth adding a close-up floor-plan of the house itself; I think that's a requirement.

I fear I'm liable to miss the due date with my play-along. I've only just got the Curious Brothers moved out. I don't do repeat play-throughs of the same 'hood, so I'm playing this in my existing Strangetown. Up to starting this contest play-along, I'd only played one loose rotation in Strangetown, so I'm quite confident there have been no big structural changes to any of the houses till now, but the houses have been lived in, so their value has depreciated. The Curious Brothers lived in theirs for 4 or 5 days till they were moved out today. As a result the value of their house after they moved out was only §46,406 rather than the §54,120 mentioned Jo's first post. The difference is §7,714. If I deduct this from the §80,000 mentioned, that leaves §72,286 as the maximum price before new Sims move in. But maybe I'm being a bit unfair on myself, as I'll a depreciated value for anything that I demolish, but have to pay the full price for replacements. So maybe I should allow myself up to about §73.000. I'm not planning on demolishing many walls in this house, and anyway, if Emerald can do it for well under §60K, I should be able to do it for under §72K.

Thanks Jo for your comments a few days ago about my round 1 entry. My idea of the red and white paint was to advertise that he was running a barber's shop. I originally tried searching on-line for a CC traditional barber's pole (red and white spiral stripes). I didn't find one, and thought of starting a WCIF, but then thought, "Why not just paint the building red and white instead? "He's in a bit of a dilemma over his wish to be alone, but at the same time needing to attract customers if his business is to earn money for him.

Default Round 2: 2 Cover up Road--Smith
I'm having some internet issues right now; it keeps messing up whenever I try to upload all my pics. I'm going to try doing just a couple at a time and see if that works. Finally got everything uploaded...yeesh...Is the bar open yet?

I went with a Retro-Tikki theme; I blame P.T and those Hawaiian shirts.

The Smith family
A family of four who look like they want the perfect suburban life. They consist of elder alien Pollination Tech#9 Smith, his adult wife Jenny, teenage son Johnny and child age daughter Jill.
Requirements: Each child must have their own room the parents an en-suite bathroom.
Bio's: The only thing PT9 loves more than his lawn is his family. When he is not spending time with his children, he enjoys clipping coupons and staring up at the sky.
Jenny loves having a career, but she wishes she could spend more time with her family, and maybe make some new friends. She really likes green.
Johnny dreams of being the hero that rides in on a white horse, or at least a cool sports car.
When Jill closes her eyes, she sees dolphins. She has her heart set on becoming a deep sea welder someday.

Default Round Two : Beakers at 2 Cover Up Road

The Beaker's was misplaced and landed at 2 Cover Up Road, but you know they can't live in any old thing. Circe decided to do a modern style home. She did a light brick with double porches and a side balcony. She made sure that Loki's lab was on the top floor so that if there was a fire now there would be plenty of time to escape. Loki insisted that Nervous Subject room be close to the lab. He was given all the amenities of his the old room. Including a ant farm to become one with science. Because, Loki has set the house on fire more than once due his experimenting on far to many things so Circe decided on curtain only in her office has them.
