It's just a lot of careful work with the raise/lower terrain tools.

Thank you for your kind words! This was a lot of fun to build. I wish I could take credit for the floorplan, but I found the house on one of those houseplan websites. I'm really glad you like my interpretation of it.

Mc.Mansions people call them - no front yard, no back yard...

As a home-builder for 35 years and an architect for 23 I think I actually want to build this house in real life. For a long time I have often used the Sims games to show my customers what their house could look like, even back to TS1. That is to say it is common practice for me to make a customers house in 'The Sims' and show it to them and let them edit stuff. They love it - Will Wright would like that too, after all - he was trying to make an architect program originally not a game.

That all being said, again - I really appreciate this house. It's gunna be a lot of fun for my sims and me too. In reality, if I ever set up another construction company again in SoCal, I'll probably build this house or something that really closely resembles it.

Again Thanx

This comment hit home. As an urban studies/urban planning adjunct, (just call me an "urbanologist" lol) I often tell my students to use games such as sims to hone their skills. They laugh when i tell them how many hours i spend building and decorating. But for those of us that play, we are familiar with the planning and (urban) designing aspects of this game. As an architect I can *TOTALLY* see its usefulness in your trade. I'm glad someone else also uses this game in real life scenarios.
