Smythe

The Smythe house was tested by the Gavigans.  (See previous post for pictures and history!)  It is built on a 3×4 lot (I think) and has 3 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a nursery, a pet room and a bonus room downstairs.  Downstairs there is also a large living room, a big, open kitchen/dining combo.  Upstairs it has a large unfinished attic for whatever use your sims may need.  It’s a little pricey for the Anaraste Series (again) but by second generation, it should be more affordable.

There is room on the lot for a driveway, a garden, a pool as well as room for hobby items and general “having fun” space.  It has a front porch and a back deck.  This house could hold a large family easily!

This is a base game only house.  The Gavigans found a few small problems, which I am unable to repair as I no longer have a base-game only machine.  They are all easy things for you to fix though, I will list them here so you’ll know what to expect.

If you have used any of my houses at all, you’ll soon realize that I tend to forget lights.  This house is no different.  I forgot lights in the bonus room by the front door, in the hallway, the pet room, and the blue bedroom!!  Also, some of the plants are sticking through the walls, so you may want to move them back a square if this bothers you.

The Gavigans report that they had no major problems with the house, but the shape of the pet room does limit it’s use.  (EDITED: Scroll down to read comment #1 to see Anghara’s suggestion about the pet room. The Gavigans are Anghara’s sims.) They enjoyed the outdoor space this house has.  They also had a big party, which went really well.  There were no major clogging spots, everyboby ate and drank and had a great time!  This was the Gavigan’s favorite house of all the ones they’ve play tested for me so far!  That’s high praise indeed!

Would you like to see it for yourself?  I thought so…

Georgia St.

The Gavigans

The Gavigans

Georgia St. was built on a 3×3 lot with just the base game.  This house fits nicely in the Anaraste Series, both budget-wise and floor plan-wise.  It was play tested by Anghara’s family The Gavigans.  This is the Mr. and Mrs. and as I understand it, they have several children.  They have play tested several houses for me and it seems each time they moved into a new house, they had to break it in by “trying for baby.”  They often succeeded! :wink:

Georgia St. has 3 bedrooms, a nursery, 2.5 baths, a study and a bonus room, all in one story.  There is a large living room, space in the hallways for pet objects.  There is room on the lot for hobby items, a small pool, a garden and outdoor recreation.  There is no room for a driveway.  There is room to build up, but not out.  There is minimal landscaping done to keep move in costs down.  The small bathroom at the front of the house can be expanded; then the front room with the work out machine could have an external door added, and that room could be used for a home business, if you have OFB and prefer home businesses.  The door to the rest of the house could be locked to keep customers out.

The Gavigans found a few minor problems with the lot.  However, I am unable to fix these problems for you as I do not currently have a machine with only the base game on it.  I will list the problems here so you’ll know what to fix.  I forgot the phone and burgler alarm, as well as lights in the hallways.  There are no windows in the bathrooms.  Some of the plants stick through the walls.  Other than these problems, the Gavigans report no major problems with the house.  They suggest moving the toys out of the nursery because it gets clogged up with them in there, especially with two toddlers.  They also suggest that the nursery area would be a prime place to put a stairwell if you decide to add another level later.

Mrs. Gavigan says “In my opinion? Another great house!”  Yay!!

Take a look at it for yourself:

Trimfoot Ave.

Avana Trimfoot Ave.

Avana

123 Trimfoot Ave was built on a 4×3 lot.  It is part of the Anaraste Series, although it ended up being too big and over budget for my neighborhood right now.   Don’t worry, Anaraste will grow into it!  It sure is pretty and roomy, so I’ll hang on to it until somebody gets rich enough to afford it.

Trimfoot was built with the base game and Nightlife only, but it was built with OFB in mind.  The lower level features a garage and a large, open area where your sims can run a home business.  Not into home businesses?  No worries!  The lower level can work for hobbies or career reward storage.  You can divide it up for more rooms, or you can build an indoor pool.  Your imagination is the only limitation of what to do with that lower level.  It has an entrance, and it has a hallway with a door that leads upstairs to the living area.  You can delete these, or lock these as needed.

There already is an enclosed garage, and there is room on the lot for a garden, pond, or hobby items.  At $101,885, it is definitely a house for your upper-middle class family.

This house was play tested by Avana Montiga, one of  Phoenix’s sims.  You really should go read her Ravensworth Legacy, it’s very entertaining!  Avana found a few things wrong with the house.  For example, it had a diagonal door into the study; for some reason, sims would go through the wall beside the door rather than through the door itself.  I changed the wall so it is no longer diagonal.  There were a few other things that were repaired.  Avana says “The front stairs can be annoying.  Only one person could go up or down them at a time.  The other Sim would wait until the first sim was ALL the way up before they started up.”  I tried to fix this by adding a door on the lower level, but I foresee other problems occuring with that.  One being that your Sim will have to go all the way down there to answer the door.  So, you may wish to explore other options there.  The house was not play tested again after I made these repairs.

Avana also said “Other than those few things I loved the flow of the house.  I did use the bottom area to house all my career rewards. The rooms were spacious and there wasn’t a lot of crowding in certain areas except for the spot I mentioned. I really enjoyed playing in the house! It would be the kind of house that I would want in real life!”  The crowding she mentions is in the kitchen bathroom, seems all the sims want to use THAT one, nevermind that there are 2 others!

So, take a look, see what you think!

Storm Ridge

A new house in the Anaraste series. A three bedroom, 2 bath house built on a 3 x 4 lot. The master suite has a built in bathroom and nursery. There is a bonus room which is currently set up as an office, (Serena play tested this house, and pointed out that I forgot lights in the office. I can’t add a light now because I don’t currently have a machine with base game and NL installed, so please add a light in there!) but please turn it into whatever you need. This house also features a hobby area in the garage. Lots of room for trains, hobby benches, pottery … whatever your sim is into! Or, if you prefer, add a door to the outside, and turn that area into a business, if you have OFB.

There is room in the back yard for a small garden, however, this house is placed back on the lot to allow room in the front for friends and neighbors to gather and gossip, or to toss a ball about.

Here is the second house in the Anaraste Series. Built on a 3 x 3 lot, this is a nice sized 3 bedroom 2.5 bath house. The living room is big enough to add some hobby and/or pet items. There is already a small garden outside as well as a fishing tank. It has a built in garage with room for storage, and a small bathroom out there to make clean up easy after one has been tinkering.

Urban Legend

This is the first house built for the Anaraste Series. I was aiming for a moderate family home running about 50 to 60k, for the new town Mayor to live in. As far as that goal goes, I failed. Miserably!

First off, it came out way over budget. Way, way. $122,848 and only moderately furnished and landscaped. Oops. Just the empty shell was 50k! I followed a tutorial to learn how to attach the garage to the house. That part went ok, but the roof managed to escape me yet again. I ended up clicking the auto-roof button yet again. I really need to hunt up some roof tutorials. But, not today.

By the time the empty shell was up, and I figured I was over budget, it was very late on a work night, I saved and shut down. I almost bull-dozed the lot, but something wouldn’t let me do that.

The next day at work, the house kept calling me … a siren’s call not to give up on it. Sure, it would be several generations before anyone in my new ‘hood could afford to live in it, but maybe one of your sims could!

I got home, did the Mom and Wife stuff, and built a more suitable house. Still couldn’t let this one go, so I finished it in the wee hours of the morning. Sleep is over-rated anyway!

It’s huge folks. The living room is about the size of Delaware, there are 3 big bedrooms, a huge gameroom, a craft room and a “screened in” exercise room. (Not really screened in because there is no custom content.)

It looks like this:

414 Strawberry Cove

This is another large house for an advanced Legacy, or for a large family. It has 5 bedrooms and 4 bonus rooms, although one is quite small. It is built in a Mexican, or perhaps a Southwestern Style. It was built by request (strong suggestion?) from prescella_bean, who needed a large house built on a 3 x 3 lot. I’ve uploaded a few of these large houses recently, but she needed one on a smaller lot, so I did one. This one is 2-story, where the others were one story. She did not give me a budget, I shot for $70k, but missed by a bunch. :(
