I was fighting CC and Windows7 installs this weekend instead of designing. Oh well, if I can't get it posted in time, proceed without me. this lot needs some custom CC anyway to do it justice since I can't install my store stuff.

Edit: beat me to it
Yeah, I'm already kind of feeling the pressure, so the extension is very nice. I still feel just a little guilty, though.

Yup. That can be done.
I will patiently wait until Round 4 starts.

I don't think I will be in the top 3 this round with such great additions.

So, in 1953, The Buxom Fedora was established as a cool, hip hangout for all the topcats about the place by Mr. R Beaudesert. In order to make running the club easier, her lived on the roof in a room meant for a custodian but converted into a flat of some sort.
The club failed to get going, until he introduced Ladies Night Thursday, when all the Ladies came with their husbands and danced until 11.30pm, thank you very much.
The club had a long and prosperous run, and made a nice sum after it was sold after Mr. Beaudesert died. The club is now on the market and is in need of some moderniziation and de-gramophonization.
Top Floor/ Residential Level:
Furnished Price: §183, 779

So here it is:
The Pale Green Mansion
Eugene Stinger is a mining prospector. He and his family (wife Eleanor and twin boys Jamie and Jonah) have lived in Inner Mongolia for years now, looking for that elusive motherlode that will make them rich. Now Eugene has finally found one, and the family planned to move back to SimSuburbia as soon as they are able. They would need a suitable dwelling once they got there, of course, so they have asked their architect friend Hugobert von Schmuck to design one for them. Eugene did not specify much for the house, only asking that it be suitably impressive, comfortable, and suited for their family. He wants it to be robust and strong, though, as the family has lived in flimsy tents that's regularly blown away by the strong winds of the Mongolian desert for so long now. Oh, and he specified that it should be green. Eugene, you see, have heard of this 'green' movement, but don't really know much about what it's all about, being in Inner Mongolia and all. It's just that he's heard that 'green' houses was 'in' in SimSuburbia
Hugobert is rather mystified of just what his friend meant by the house needing to be green. So what he came up with is actually a sturdy, stately mansion featuring green bricks on the exterior. The inside, however, is rich, stately brown. Thankfully the family was overjoyed when they saw their new abode for the first time. Hugobert was rewarded handsomely and thanked profusely. Now the family is living happily ever after in their green mansion, enjoying their newfound, and richly deserved wealth.

No CCs! Do use items from expansion packs and EA store.
Much as I tried, I just can't come up with anything creative or out of the box for this foundation without a severely compromised inside layout, so what I end up with is just a plain ol' home, though spruced up as best I could. Probably lacking in wow factor, though. Kudos to those who managed to come up with creative and awesome houses with this most unusual foundation!

I still have a few judge comments I need to send out - I'll do those ASAP (I gotta go to bed though, my head hurts). +24 hours! (no i haven't changed the countdown, i'll do that in the morning too)

(My home is done, furnished and all, I just need to put the post together (pictures and such), so the extension really does help)
Aiza once was just a normal girl, but one day - it was a cold, harsh winter's day - she got lost in a snow storm. The Grim Reaper found her almost frozen to death. She was very beautiful with her pale light blue skin. The Grim Reaper sighed, he did not like to steal away the spirits of young ones. He decided that he would not take her with him that day. But his resurrection spell somehow failed him (he hadn't used it very much lately, it really was only to be used in emergencies). The effect of the spell was curious: The light blue skin did not change back to Aiza's original rosy skintone. Instead, it grew even paler. Her hair changed into a light bluish purple shade and her eyes turned purple. She could not remember anything that happened; she didn't even remember where she lived, but she didn't really care. Everything about her was cold now, and anything she touched she could turn into ice. She had an aura of coldness around her that made everyone nearby shiver. She now liked to have cold things around her.
Wherever she would go, people would fear her and dislike her. So finally, she went into a swampland, where it was so uncanny that no one really dared to venture into it. There, she built a house of ice. And if she had to go into the city and anyone mocked her or treated anyone badly, she would take that person into her house and him or her into ice. She now has the most curious collection of ice statues one can imagine...
But let's take a look at her house!
NO custom content was used
The front of the house - during the night, the lights create stunning effects that emanate a muted glow through the fog...
the first floor
there is not really a second floor, but the walls are twice as high as usual in Aiza's home:
Aiza loves the way that ice shimmers when hit by different colored lights... she used lights everywhere to create special effects and moods!
the living room/hall where she presents her ice sculptures. In the middle, she has a little frozen artificial pond that she accentuated with lights:

Have never played the sculpture profession before, does it melt in the end?

Garden (Extra #1)
Zen Room (Extra #2)
(Second Story View)
Closet (Extra #3)
I couldn't get a picture of the backyard because there was some weird glitch with the ceiling. Part of it was hanging in mid-air; I restarted the game and it was still there... I think the house was very big and I wish I could have added more pictures... but I think I'm probably at the max. haha Working on this home was fun and frustrating! And I didn't mean to finish so close to the deadline (seems pretty irresponsible), but I've been busy for the past weeks getting ready for school and sports. I feel bad that I missed Round 2; embarrassingly enough, I got messed up with the time zones. haha BUT now I know better! And well, good luck to all! Everyone has done a great job during Round 2 and 3; all have stepped up his or her game... I felt a little discouraged but pumped at the same time! :D

This facility was established in 2010 by the DragonKin Family to provide a place to study the Arts and Sciences.
The modern design of this building was created by Winterhart, head of the DragonKin Family.
Seen here is a view of the front of this modern marvel.
The small property has it's own fishing and swimming hole.
As you pass the laundry room, straight ahead of you is a sunken fire pit.
To your right you will see 4 Pedestrian Sculpting Stations.
To the left are 2 Scraptronic Workbenches.
At the back there are 2 private chess rooms.
Beyond the chess rooms is the swimming and fishing hole. The fishing hole is well stocked with local fish.
On the 2nd floor are Drafting Tables, Easels, and the Computer Sciences Lab.
The 3rd floor has a large Living Room with a bathroom centrally located creating the effect of 3 smaller living rooms for more intimate gatherings.
The Kitchen with 2 stoves and counter seating to accommodate 5 people.
Off the back of the kitchen there is a small bathroom. There is another small bathroom across the courtyard.
The large Dinning room with seating for 12.
The 4th floor contains housing for resident artists and scientists.
There are 8 small bedrooms and 3 shared bathrooms.
The head of the Foundation has a slightly larger bedroom with a private bath.
On the roof you will find Telescopes for the study of Astronomy, Chess Tables to help improve logic skills, and benches for quiet reflection.
Here is a spectacular view of the back of DragonKin Arts and Sciences Foundation.

After viewing the many beautiful gardens in Japan, The images are in my dreams and now in Twinbrook.
I used CC for the BIG windows, the Shoji walls, the tatami floors and a few of bonsai in the inner atrium garden. I had to take the CC hit because store downloads are borked and I can't load my Zen Again set. I am glad some artists made these items to lend authenticity to my lot even if I have to take a 10 CC hit. I'm in it for the fun anyway, not to win, even though that would bwe nice. :0) (HINT ). So I have to get to bed - it's 12:30 am cuz I gotta get up at six so I'm not posting pretty text this time. I've run out of time and may not get to my computer in time to fix up anything. Sorry,. here you go. Enjoy.
Dining room with interior windows revealing inner atrium:
waterfall into Koi pond - viewable from the living room:
Floorplan: (What the heck is that dark object in the back of the house off the smaller bedroom? (I forgot to delete an unused shower. It's gone from the lot but still in the picture.)
I know the roof isn't perfect. i just ran out of time to do it right. IF I upload this lot, I will fix those errors. GOODNIGHT!

Also check out the awesome prize that cmomoney has created for this contest!
You still have time to finish your R3 entries!
R3 has been extended by 24 hours and the countdown on the first page updated. Finish up ASAP - or if you're done, get started on R4!
Even though I've asked to pull out the contest... can I still enter R4 and get scored and stuff? It's just that I expected to be busier for longer, but what I was doing sort've flew out the window. :\
Anyways, I hope I can ask that here.
