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!

Simple Time

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.

Majesty

Another new house! How exciting! This is a brick front beauty, with a really gorgeous raised bath in the master bathroom. It’s a two bedroom house with an office that can be changed to a third bedroom if desired. It has a dog house out back, a pet bed in the hallway, a good sized garden and three fruit trees. Also, a nice looking pool, and the kitchen is awesome. This house came from a floor plan, so I can’t take credit for the layout, but the house came out lovely, if I do say so myself. It has been play tested, and appropriate changes were made.

For this house, you can download the lavishly furnished and landscaped house you see in the pics, or you can download an exact double that is not furnished or landscaped. In the unfurnished house, the kitchen and bath are outfitted, but not decorated, and each room has a cheap piece of furniture tossed in to show what the room was intended to be. However, you use them for whatever you wish!

No custom content, no hacks, and no sims inside.
UNI, NL, OFB, PETs, SEA and BV needed.
$161,608 furnished and landscaped.
$53,375 unfurnished, but more affordable.

324 Lively Street or Starter_06

Here is another quaint little starter house. It is one bedroom and a bonus room. The bonus room is just barely large enough to be used for a child’s bedroom, but it’ll be crowded. The house is furnished, and has items to build all 7 skills. It also has a fruit tree, and a small garden with a ladybug house.

My laptop is broken, so this was built on my main computer. That means you will need UNI, NL, OFB, PETS, SEA, and BV to play this house. In other words, all the EPs, in case I forgot one. The house is built on a 20×30 lot, and goes for a modest 18,876 simoleons. There is no custom content, no hacks and no sims living in the house.
