Quaint

The Gavigans

The Gavigans

When I build a new house for sims, I do a “write up” on it in a spiral notebook.  After the house is posted, the paper goes in a binder where I can find it in the future, if needed.  It has not always been this way, but it’s one of those things that experience teaches.  Document.  It often comes in handy.  Especially since several weeks, sometimes months, pass between when I build it, and when it gets posted here.  My memory is not that long.  xD

For reasons I cannot even begin to guess, there seems to be no “write up” for this house.  I have looked everywhere.  It’s not too big of an issue, as I just created a new write up.  The only hitch is, I do not know if this is a base game only house, or if Night Life is required.  Is there a way to tell that after the house is built?  If anybody knows, please let me know.  Or, if you have the base game only and try to install this house, but it tells you that you need NL, please let me know that too.

Quaint is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath house built on a 3×4 lot (I think) that sells for 86,099.  It has some different design elements that I’m rather fond of … I’ll point them out in the pictures.

It has a kitchen/dining room combo, and a separate breakfast nook.  It has a large living room with fireplace.  I hate the current furniture arrangement in the living room, so fix that up with some custom content right away, mmmkay?  The kids have their own wing on the opposite side of the house from the master suite.  There is a very small room behind the chimney that is meant to be a storage room for your lot debugger, or other small items like that.  (BTW, I highly recommend the lot debugger, you should have one on every lot!)  Feel free to do what you will with that room, but it’s pretty small.

The lot has minimal landscaping to keep down the move in costs.  There is room on the lot for a garden or pond or pool or hobby items or driveway, but not enough room for all those things.

This house was also play tested by the Gavigans (hence their picture on the post, LOL) and they found that I forgot …. guess what!!  If you guessed lights, please move to the front of the class and collect your cookies.  No light in the bathroom between the front door and the girl’s bedroom.  The Gavigans feel that there should be more windows in the bathrooms and in the storage room, so feel free to add those.  You’re going to redecorate with custom content anyway, right?  Right!  I also forgot to put a trash can in the house, certainly you’ll need one of those.  You’ll need to fix these things yourself, as I’m going with the theory that this is a base game only lot, but I no longer have a base game only set up.

Let me show you what this house looks like.  I’m quite pleased with it, and may actually have to play the game, instead of just building, just to see somebody enjoy this house!

Dazzle

Dazzle is a new house for the Anaraste series, built on a 4×3 lot.  It’s base game only and runs $65, 931 to move in.  It has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with the master bedroom having it’s own bath and a nursery with a separate entrance.  There is a hobby room (bonus room), an empty room meant to be a pet room (since it’s a base game house, I didn’t have any pet stuff to put in there) and the dining room is lovely … all windows! There is a large living room with fireplace.

There is room on the lot for a driveway, pool, pond, garden, cemetary, or swingset, but not all those things.  Minimal landscaping to keep the price down.

The house was playtested by the Gavigans that you met a few posts ago. They found a few things that need to be fixed, but I can’t fix them as I do not have a base game only set up right now.  They are easy things for you to fix though.  How many of you are surprised to hear that I forgot lights, raise your hands. What?  Nobody is surprised?  Ok then.  You need to add lights in the hobby room and the pet room.  The Gavigans think there should be a window in the bathroom by the kitchen. Also, you need to move the door in that bathroom.  Just move it one tile over, or else it doesn’t close properly.  See, all easy stuff!

Of course as always, redecorate it with your custom content to make the house really shine and fit your Sims needs and personalities!

On to the pics!

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:

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. :(

No custom content, no hacks, no sims in it.
Base game only, no EPs needed!! 3 x 3 lot $88,135 partially furnished

150 Blueberry Street

When I uploaded Eastway Drive and Lunabar, a couple folks chimed in asking for large, one story legacy houses without certain EPs.  So, I decided to build one for base-game only.  No EP conflict that way!  :)

Blueberry Street was built on a 4×4 lot, 5 bedrooms, (master has a built in nursery and bathroom), 5 bathrooms, 2 bonus rooms, kitchen, dining room and large living room.  It has front and back decks and room on the lot for gardens, fruit trees, some hobbies and maybe a small pond.

You may notice some difference in picture quality this time.  Usually the pictures are taken and worked up on my desktop computer.  However, my daughter’s computer has gone to the shop for much needed upgrades so I’m sharing the desktop with her.  I don’t think she’ll get off it any time in the near future.  Rather than make you wait until 2027 for your houses, I took and worked up these pics on my new laptop.  The graphics card is not as good, but we can deal with it, right?  The good news is, daughter play tested this house with her 10 sims family, and gave it her seal of approval!

No custom content, no hacks, no sims in it.
Base game only, no EPs needed!! 4 x 4 lot $71,310 basically furnished

It is sparsely furnished, not decorated to keep the move in price down and is begging out for your favorite custom content, so please redecorate it as soon as your sims can afford it!

Hippy Hollow

pne (who did an awesome job organizing the tags for this site,) requested a house for a hippy.  The house only needed to be big enough for one sim.  The yard had to be big enough for several fruit trees, a vegetable garden, and a pond.  The hippy!sim was going to “live off the land” so to speak.  Oh, and keep it under 50K, please.

Have I mentioned that I love a good request?  :)

No custom content, no hacks, no sims in it.
Base game only, no EPs needed!! 3 x 4 lot, $49,583 furnished with items for all 7 skills included

The house itself is based loosely on a house my Hubby is currently building for a “hippy” friend of ours.  The house is very open to the outdoors, lots of air and light.  Lots of wood … cedar and pine, natural materials, big porches and decks used for outdoor living spaces.  Here in Texas, these spaces can be used nearly year ’round.
