Here is part VI of my construction project ..This time it is a plywood outside wall covering...There are two parts of this wall so you can alternate seams to make your walls look more realistic ..This wasnt even a part of this project till i found the perfect texture and thus made this wall covering so enjoy !!!!

Cloned from the aluminum siding..I have all EP's including FFS so 1 or more might be necessary even though this is a base game object...

Awesome! Now can you do plywood flooring like whats on a new foundation? I do a lot of my building from the ground, so my new floors are grass

Yeah I could do that...They will be up maybe tonight ...Have to wait for them to get approved though ...I will start them later on ...The floors will contain 5 different floor tiles to allow for seams and a more realistic looking floor ...

Hey I just love this set! Now we can build our Sims houses the real way like if we want to add an addition or something! But, are you still going to make roof trusses? That would be awesome!

Thank you for this construction project!! I waited all the time for a better way to have some houses under construction. Everywhere in the neighbourhoods you can find the most beautiful houses but not a single one that isn't ready. Although this only has a more unimportant aspect, because you hardly can play on these lots, I missed that in the neighbourhood view. Finally I can start to add that to my game!

Hey tigmomx4, thank you soooo much for this! I have requested this many many times in the past but no one ever replied.... I love having this in my game... now I can finally make my own house the way it really looks!... btw do you think you could make Original Wall Stud Window with a sheet of paneling on one side and insulation on the other side...
something like this....

Yeah give me some time as i am working on my roof trusses right now ..But i think i can do something that would satisfy your request ...Should be quite simple actually all i need to do is modify my window a little and get the right textures ...Give me a week or two and i should have it done ....

Hey do you think you could take a close up picture of the insulation ?? It would save me the trouble of having to google for it ...BTW your wall is already done except for adding the insulation texture to it !!!!!!!!!!

There is going to be a small delay and i might not get this up till tomorrow ..I am having a problem with the diagonal part and have posted a topic in the object and creation workshop so hopefully someone there knows how i can solve the problem and your window will be up very soon !!!!!!!!!



Oh yeah you can go back to your posts in here and edit them to take away the pictures now...I have the pics i needed ...

ahhhhh ignorantbliss monitors the workshop and she is a window and door master and can usually help me out unfortunatly she lives in finland so there is a little time difference ...


P.S. in the past 5 minutes i have made a new part to go with this wall window you requested and i will upload them both at the same time and that is to have the wall with insulation on BOTH sides showing so you can use it for interior walls .....


P.S.S. Oh yeah thanks for this excellent idea as i think now im going to remake all the stud walls i have done to include the new insulation versions ...More work for me but better flexibility for everyone else !!!!!!

Well that's good...
And you're welcom for the ideas.... I can't wait until the is all finished, it's going to look really great in game..Do you you plan to make objects as well? or are you only going to make the windows and doors?

Btw, thank you for taking your time and doing this for me I greatly appreciate it....

actually twiztid i originally was going to make some items you would see on a house that was getting siding put on , like a break for bending metal , pump jacks which attach to the roof so you can go up and down the wall without using ladders picks which are the planks you stand on blah blah blah blah blah , But i started doing these wall studs first and the ideas about what to make next keep rollin along so eventually there will be some construction "ITEMS" in this series ....by the time im done this should have more new meshes than the simstones set and that was a HUGE set ....

Sim Master you are welcome and there is a lot more to come !!!!!!

well as long as i dont come up with anymore brilliant ideas (which im sure will KEEP comming as i keep making different things ) i would have to say 2-3 weeks to get everything DONE ...Right now I still have about 8 or so pieces to make for the roof truss system which is going to bring that set up to about 30 pieces by iteself (originally i only planned on having it be 10 pieces ) ...Once im done with that i think im going to take a break from windows and doors and start on the siding objects just to get a few pieces out there and keep interest going in this project...And i also have to fight my 11 year old daughter and our new foreign exchange student for the puter ....But within a month i would say i should have everything where i want it and then i might even reupload everything into 1 thread sort of like the simstones set is done but thats down the line ....
