Bed and Breakfast

A request came in a few days ago for a southern plantation style bed and breakfast.  The request went something like this:

There is no price limit. Lot size doesn’t really matter to me. I would like it to be a 2 story plantation style house. Perhaps with a gazebo and a garden in the backyard. I would love a small pond too if possible.  … I would like at least 6 bedrooms. That would allow 2 bedrooms for the owners/servant quarters and 4 bedrooms for guests. If possible could you separate the staff bedrooms from the guest bedrooms? Perhaps put them in a separate section of the house? The house in my story is a landmark for the city, since its been in the town for over 100 years. I love the stately southern look of old plantation homes…

So guess what I did.  I build it!  I’m really rather pleased with it too!  It’s 2 stories with lots of porches all around, the gazebo is just the cutest thing, there is a fishing pond, a greenhouse, fruit trees and daisy lined brick walkways everywhere.  It’s white clapboard like a southern plantation should be, and looks authentic.  The “staff wing” is downstairs, off to the side, and through a door that can be locked. It has two bedroom and a sitting room.

Every bedroom in the house has it’s own bathroom.  They aren’t big or fancy, but they will get the job done.  :)

Downstairs there is also a great room for gathering and visiting, a big country kitchen with a breakfast nook, a formal dining room, a game room, and exercise room and a small, informal, family sitting room.  Off the kitchen is a hallway that leads to a bathroom.  Now, as you know if you’ve been around this site long, I do not use any custom content in these lots.  However, I left room in that hallway for a washer and dryer if you have one.  If not perhaps it can be a small pet area, or something.

There are two different sets of stairs leading upstairs to minimize the arm flailing fit throwing tantrums because some other sim is already on the steps.  Silly sims!  Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms.  One is quite large, has a double bed and a single bed for a family to stay in, another room has a double bed, a third room has two twin beds and the 4th room has one twin bed.  There is a small sitting area with a TV, and another small sitting area for reading or visiting.  You can go out onto a deck off the back of the house to enjoy a soak in the hot tub.

It’s built on a 5×6 lot, and it’s a big house, so it might lag your game.  I forgot to write down how much it cost, but it’s over $300,000.  I will try to remember to edit that in later.  The “night shot” pictures were taken when I was play testing the house.  If you have eagle eyes, you will see sims in those shots, but there are no sims included in the lot!

I took one million pictures of this house, but I did have enough sense to narrow it down just a tad.  So, let’s see what it looks like, shall we?
