Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hey everyone! This large, modern retreat is called 'Warmth of The Cliffside'. I've called it this because A). it's on a cliffside, and B). the colours I've used on this house feel very warm on the exterior to me. I've also repeated the rock exterior on the interior in places, it creates a nice effect, notably in the kitchen and bathroom. On to the piccies!





Attached to this upload page is also an interior pic of one of the 2 master bedrooms. I chose the green bedroom becasue for me, that is my favourite of all the three bedrooms in the house.
This house has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, Kitchen and Dining, a study, and a garage. Inside the cliffside (which can be accessed by going down the exterior stairs at the back) is also a small personal gym, and a small dance hall.

Well I really, really hope that you enjoy this house, because it was tremendous fun building it, I can tell you that! So enjoy, and happy simming!

Very modern and very realistic! You have done a spectacular job at building the cliffside using the perfect terrain paint, plants. The architecture is great and I love how the floor plan is a lot more spacious than imagined. Well done! Certainly deserved to be a picked upload.

What a pretty home! And, I'm sure the view is spectacular on that hill. Your interior furnishings, wall-coverings, and decor items are both stylish and easy on the eye. Thank you for sharing this cozy hill top home!

youre welcome, and may i also ask, did you use any cheats whilst making this? ive tried countless times using the constrainfloorelevation false cheat to get the terrain elevation close to the walls as you have here. i installed this lot a while back and im still marvelling at it!

aberrantanecdote - Yup, I used the constrainFloorElevation false cheat. It's been quite a while since I've actually flat out *built* in TS3, in fact the last time I built was before my last upload. Consequently, I'm a tad rusty and can't really remember, without reinstalling this lot to my game, how I did some stuff. I think a lot of the stuff is covered in tutorials that are on this site, under 'Create > Sims 3 > Tutorials', then 'building tutorials'. Sorry I'm not much more of a help.

Thanks for the house design. I use this house on the cliff areas, instead of the EA default smaller house. I had to tweak the garage and door going to the garage to get it to work in my game. I modernized the exterior with different custom exterior brick walls to give it a light and bright exterior. I add a custom brick trim on the edges of the roof to give it a sleek finished look. The townies seem to always want to live in it.
