gabrielorie - They're correct now - some spots may be blank if that judge didn't comment on your particular entry - the other judge who left comments commented on every entry. There's less this round as, like I said somewhere upthread, I think the judges were getting a bit weary of typing out comments on all the entries - it was always optional for them to do them.

Ahh the cooky Dr Who theme comments were meant for me , the back story and sims pictured in my R3 lot were loosely based on older versions of the British Sci-Fi show / movies called "Dr Who".

Marble Beach~
This house is a lot more moderny then houses I usually build. It was pretty fun to build, even though it was DANG small and fitting the stairs in was a bit of a challenge. But here it is! Enjoy!
Long ago, this beach used to be a pirate cove. Since then though, the cove has been blocked off by fallen rock and just a few sandy tidepools remain. While this may not seem like the ideal location for a house. Someone, for whatever reason, built a beautiful modern resort here. It's now up for sale, still fully furnished with the sculptures the previous owner created for any sim who has enough money and doesn't mind being surrounded by pools of sharks all the time.
This house has one bedroom and one bathroom.
Front View:

Top floor (includes bedroom and bathroom):

Bottom floor (living room, dining room, and kitchen):

Living room (complete with modern fireplace and two fancy-pants TVs):

Kitchen (contains two high-end ovens, and all stainless-steel appliances.):

Dining area and reading nook (sunny and bright):

Bedroom (1/2 number one!):

1/2 number two (dressing area):

No custom contents!

I think I've worked out the finish time to be 8:30 am in the UK!

I now second your request for a slight extension. It is currently 10:30 pm and I have to go to bed soon ready for work at 8:30 tomorrow morning! My house is nearly finished but I still have three rooms to furnish! I don't finish work tomorrow until 6 pm.

I don't want to miss out submitting my entry but I also don't want to be unfair on the other contestants who have successfully met the deadline. :S

I'm fine with extending it - this deadline comes at kind of a difficult time - I'm trying to write an obituary for my uncle and put together other stuff for his memorial, from an ocean away. It's kind of sucking the fun out of spreadsheets.

The house of family Beriksson

The Berikssons like the traditional Swedish architecture with lots of red and white wood, because it reminds them of their original home. When they moved to Riverview a few years ago, they didn't have much money and could only afford to build a small house.
But the beautiful garden made up for it.
The Berikssons live solely on their own produce from their garden - and the occasional fish. Finn, the head of the young family, comes from a family that has been in the fishing business for decades. He knows just about anything there is to know about fishing. He also loves his aquarium, in which he puts his most precious catches. His wife Anne is a devoted gardener and cook. Together, they care for their little twins, Erik and Marja, the best way they can.
Finn and Anne know that soon, they will have to think about an annex so that the twins could have their own rooms, but for now, the top floor has to be a shared bedroom.

--No CC was used on this lot--

I love your house, Simlicious. Id never have thought to use the half-floor as a kind of 'big shelf' like you have but it looks brilliant and I'm certainly gonna be using that idea myself in future builds. Conrats and Good Luck!

What an adorable house, Simlicious! I love the shelf idea, and the fact that you have their room in the room created by the roof. I just have one question, how did you get windows into the walls made by the roof? I've never been able to do it.

Lovely house indeed, Simlicious! Like the shelves in the 'half room' above too. What an excellent idea! Excellent color combinations inside and out. And what a complicated stairs! Love the attic too. I think you're another example of someone who has improved so much since your first house!

After the war, sims had trouble finding homes because they were destroyed and taken over by others. They couldn't return and gather what was left either, but lucky for the Baker family, they found their new home. It was an old apartment that wasn't destroyed that bad but the Baker's rummaged for items to make it look better. Lucky for them, Heathcliff, the husband, is a carpenter. They fixed up most of the rooms but while on the look out for useful items, they had found a toddler named Topher just wandering the streets and decided to take care of him. There is much yard work still needed to be done. Here is their home after being fixed up.

Front. The front door was severely damaged so they created a side door and used it instead.

Yeah, I'm working on the last details of the landscaping before I take pics and I'm thinking it'll at least be another hour of work and it's already 2 in the morning where I am.

Not sure if this has been extended or not but please don't close at the original time. It's taking me longer to do the pics than I thought but I'm almost done....can't promise to have them uploaded in the next 35 mins though, more like an hour

I'm exhausted, but I've worked too hard on this house to just not even be able to post it. I'm almost done, just have to finish decorating the non-existent living room.
