Default Midsommer House by Mia138
Here's my entry for the contest.



Midsommer House is a traditional blue and white beach house, the like of which can be seen on many beachfronts all over the Sim World.
Set in informal gardens, the property comprises two levels:-

Ground Floor: Kitchen/Diner, Lounge (with doors to covered balcony with seating), Bathroom, Study, generous Entrance Hall with stairs leading to

First Floor: Master Bedroom, two other bedrooms, small Nursery and Family Bathroom.

The house is decorated throughout in classic designs giving it a neat but cosy feeling and would make a perfect family home.

Outside there is a carport, several mature trees, firepit and seating area, swingset and a small but pretty stocked garden pond.

I don't think there's a set number of 'spots', just as long as you get your entry in on time.

Oh no, fairycake89! I had a peek at your deleted post, and the lot was gorgeous. Good luck reworking it!

There are still 41 places going, and five days to get your entry in - no need to panic... yet.

I don't mean to keep pestering you with questions but can you clarify the rules on taking pics for me please as some of the unofficial contests on here can be really strict about following the guidelines exactly? I'd rather lose points for producing a rubbish entry than for not understanding the rules

1. In the initial thread you mention 5 specific shots that you want and 3 bonus pics of our choice. Is there a points penalty for deviating from this and can we submit more than the specified pics if we want?

2. If we have to stick to just the 8 images can we make each one of the bonus pics a collage of several photos like we can with the floor plans pic?

Thanks :D

Lesley and Solange Baumont have always wanted a house to live with their little family. However, Lesley wanted a real victorian gothic style house when Solange dreamt of an art deco palace.
With all their bickering, three years after the first plan was made...
It kind of ended like this: flat roof, too many windows and lot of useless balconies.

De-lurking to post this entry!

I tried to stick with mostly black and white for the house. No CC used. (The only "extras" I have are from the EA store.)

Default Entry!
Hi! I decided to enter this contest, even though I don't consider myself to be a very good house maker ^o^'

First of all, this house is small, but perfect for one Sim (possibly two). There's one parking space, and one bike rack, but room for more. The rooftop is flat, so a second floor is possible. Also, not featured in the pics below aside from the overhead view, there is a very tiny library next to the bedroom. :3 The interior might look bare to some people, but for very neat or perfectionist (or lazy...) Sims, it's a great place for them. There's less to clean. xD

There is NO CC on this lot.

Kitty Terula, you've got the foundation the wrong way round. :/

Winterhart, depending on the orientation of the lot you choose to use, you may have to rotate the foundation or you may not - there's a short discussion on this a few pages ago. You do have to use the foundation in the orientation given in the first (or second?) post.

missroxor, there's no specific scoring attached to number of pics; although using all the bonus pics will of course allow you to show your lot off better. No - you can't add more than the required pics and the maximum three bonus pics. As for collages, I dunno. I'll refer that one to HP.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

Default Sunshine and Daisies


Okay, well, after - what, two days? - I managed to complete my very first house in Sims 3! Can we have a moment of silence in honour of this? *moment passes*

So, this is 365 Oak Grove Road in Sunset Valley - also known the Sunshine and Daisies house. It's currently priced at roughly 80,000$, and features two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a back porch and study.

It is called the 'Sunshine and Daisies' house because I tried to keep the decoration scheme inside the yellow-orange-brown colour spectrum. No custom content was used in the building of this house.


Ground Floor: Consists of entry hall, living room, kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and bath, another half-bath.


Second Floor: Consists of study, second full bath and second bedroom.


The kitchen - I like this best because it seems like the brightest, sunniest part of the house. I feel happy looking at that kitchen, just like sunshine and daisies should!


The master bedroom - this took on more of a dark, rich brown colour scheme, as opposed to the brighter yellows and orange that permeate the rest of the house. (Yes, I know, you can see the roof. I kept looking for my ceiling toggle and then discovered it wasn't there, 'cause I was in Sims 3, not 2. Realized after my computer shut down my game in screaming protest that I probably could've put floor tiles above it... Oh well, live and learn for Foundation 2!)


The living room. Not much else to say on that one.

Now that I"m finished with this entry, I'm going to let my computer cry for a little while and then boot up Sims 2 to convert the plan for a little bit of fun building later! I have to de-stress from the learning curve and subsequent howls of "WTF IS WRONG WITH THIS CAMERA?!?!?!?!"

Thank you for your time.


I'm pretty sure HP said in one post, either on this thread or the thread for Site News, that we're only allowed one entry per person. So, I'd stick to just one.
