Downtown Lot #3

The next house in the downtown series, downtown lot #3 is a 2 story house with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms downstairs, and a great room upstairs. Upstairs has the kitchen and dining area, the living area and another bathroom. There is a small deck off the front of the house upstairs. This house features lots of windows making the house very bright and cozy. It is furnished with items for all  skills included. You will, of course, want to upgrade the furnishings with your custom content, as there is none included. There is a driveway outside and room for a garden or pool. No landscaping to keep move in costs down.

Downtown Lot #02

This is the second house in the Downtown Series.  Downtown Lot #02 is a two story, two bedroom, 3 bath house with a bonus room.  Downstairs it is an open plan with the kitchen, dining room and living room pretty much all one big room.  There is a full bathroom downstairs.  Upstairs the master bedroom has it’s own bathroom.  There is another bedroom, the bonus room and another full bathroom upstairs as well.  The bonus room has 2 things in it, but it can be set up for whatever your sims need.

There is not a lot of extra space in the house for pets or hobbies … aside from the bonus room, of course, but there is an extra corner here and there to squeeze in a needed item or two.

Outside there is a driveway, and some room on the lot for a garden, or a swing set, or for hobby items.  Not a lot of room for sure, but some.  This house is good for a family of 3 or 4, but it won’t hold a multi-generational crowd!  This house was play tested, and I did make some changes based on the suggestions of Phoenix, who play tested it for me.

Downtown Lot #01

The houses the come with the ingame downtown aren’t anything to write home about.  At least, not in my opinion, so I made some of my own for my neighborhood.  Thought I’d share them with you.  There are 6 houses in this series I’ll be sharing over the next month or so. I tried to keep them all under $40,000, with varying degrees of success.   They may not be anything to write home about either, but I think they are better than the ones that come with the game.  Of course, you should download them and judge for yourself!  :)

This is downtown lot #01, as you may have guessed from the subject line.  It is 2 stories with 3 bedrooms (they are not big bedrooms, but adequate), 3 bathrooms and 2 bonus rooms.  The bonus rooms are currently set up as a game room (with work out machine) and an office, but please feel free to change them as per your sims needs.  There is a sitting room upstairs.  There is a large upstairs balcony that is big enough for a hottub.  I had to remove the hottub and some other items because this house went WAAAAAAAAAAY over-budget.  Now it is just over-budget, LOL.  There are items on the lot to build all 7 skills, but it is lightly furnished. It does have burgler and fire alrams and a phone already present.

It has a very very small yard as it is built on a 2×2 lot befitting the downtown area, but it does have a driveway.  There is no landscaping done to help keep the move-in costs down, and to give your sims something to do on those days off when they can’t be earning money.  The entry way is large enough to add a few pet items, or you can remove the upstairs desk and/or couch for more pet items if you have a crazy cat lady.

You want to see pics, right?  Thought so….

Tradesmoore Dorm

That’s right boys and girls, here’s that dorm you’ve been asking for, finally!

Tradesmoore Dorm was built on a 4 x 3 lot, has 8 rooms, and needs all EPS through Free Time, but no stuff packs.  Almost all the bedrooms are big enough for a double bed.  It is fully furnished with 4 double rooms and 4 single rooms.  The furnishings are cheap and minimal to keep the bills down.  If you want to have two sims share a room, use the dormspecifictools cheat (boolprop dormspecifictoolsdisabled false to add a door, or to do other building; then boolprop dormspecifictoolsdisabled true to turn the cheat off when you’re finished.  Don’t leave this cheat on.)  to add a second door to the room you want to share.  The cafeteria is a generous size, and has room to add a second (regular) stove if you have a college sim who would rather cook that eat what the Chef has to offer.  (How many times can you eat burned mac and cheese in 4 years?)  There are plenty of doors in and out of the dorm to allow for good traffic flow.  Bills are reasonable too!

The dorm was play tested by Isaiah Gavigan and his high school sweetheart Tina.  They were so happy in the dorm, they had a secret wedding in their sophomore year. Shhh… don’t tell Tina’s dad, it’s still a secret.  (Let’s hope he doesn’t read this blog!)

Now, this is important.  Are you paying attention?  This doesn’t happen often.

I DID NOT FORGET ANY LIGHTS!  That’s right folks, they were all there.  First time for every thing!!

What did the Gavigans think of the dorm?

They liked it!

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?

Camillia Manor

9 months ago a request came in for a mansion. Yeah, a long time I know. 6 days after the request came in, my husband sustained a serious injury. He was in ICU for many days, and in the hospital for months. When he got home, his care was the only thing that mattered. His injuries are permanent, and it changed our lives. Oh, no worries, we have adjusted, and we are fine now. When catastrophe happens, you tend to just keep moving forward and one day you realize that everything is really OK again, and life returns to an all-new normal!

So, I finally built the mansion. However, it was soooo very big, that after I built it, I was totally unable to play test it. It lagged so terribly that it was unplayable on my old machine. About 6 weeks ago, my old computer gasped it’s final breath and died. My new shiny quad core machine can play this house just fine. Consider yourself warned though, if you don’t have an awesome kick-butt machine, just pass on this house. It is a game-lagger, for sure!

Here is the request:

Cost does not matter for this house so go hog wild.

This is a house for a large, rich, high-class family. It’s a mother and father and their two kids (son and daughter) and the father’s sister who is a total black sheep (and is turning the son into one as well). And there will be more kids on the way. So I suppose it’s going to be more like a mansion than a house. >.>

So I’m thinking at least six bedrooms of decent size, and there needs to be an office/den for the father, a dance/music room for the mother, and an art room for the aunt. I would also like for the house to have a porch and balcony.

Color wise it needs to a pristine white/sterile metal.

I’ve never built for a specific family before, and it was a lot of fun! Camillia Manor is built on a 6×5 lot. It has 6 bedrooms and a nursery. There are 8 bathrooms. It has a game room, exercise room, hobby room pet room, music and dance room, library, and office. There is a great room downstairs that serves as a formal living room. There is another living room upstairs as well as an informal family room for the kids.

The parents have their own wing downstairs with their master bedroom and bathroom, Mom’s music and dance room, Dad’s office and the nursery. The sister also has her own “apartment” complete with craft room, sitting room (with small fridge and microwave), bedroom and bathroom. This section has it’s own, hidden entrance.

This house is fully furnished and landscaped (but still needs your CC to give it personality) with a pool, swing set, green house, hot tub, tanning deck and BBQ area. There are two carports that will hold a total of four cars. There is no extra room on the lot for anything.

You will need a servo (or butler if you have AL) and a maid. You need to just skip the gardener and get the “always perfect plants” hack, because there is no way the gardener will keep up. You should also be prepared to “teleport” your sims around the house, because walking takes too long! The house has been play tested and yes, I forgot lights, but have now put them in!

Let’s see the pictures!

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…

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!
