Let's Build It! Round 15

Let's Build It! Round 15

Postby Rosanna » August 1st, 2015, 7:59 pm

Hi everyone!

We have an ongoing Sims event for you! In this event we will ask you to create a room, a house, a landscape or a sim based on a particular theme. You'll submit photos of your new creation. Once the deadline has arrived, we will open a poll to public vote to decide on the winner(s). The winner(s) after every round will receive a random medal! The number of medals given out will be based on the number of entries. It will either be a top 1 or a top 3.

You do not have to participate every week. This is a play as you can event. You may use TS2, TS3 or TS4 for this event (and can even mix it up from week to week).

Round 15
Starter Home - This round your mission is to create a small, one bedroom house that's perfect for a single sim ready to start his or her new adult life! There will not be a limit on how much the lot actually costs, but it should look like it's worth less than 20k simoleons!

Timeline
Deadline: September 1st
Polls Open: Sept 2-Sept 5
Next Round Posted/Winner Announced: Sept 6

The Terra Nova City Council has decided to create a series of homes for the discerning first home buyer, especially catering to those who are just getting their start in life, this is the first of their homes.

Spoiler:
Image
Upon entry into the house you see a blank space, perfect for envisioning a study, or perhaps a family area as there is room for growth with the home.
Image
The first door that a home buyer might enter is the bedroom, in this case, it is set up for two sims, perhaps siblings who plan on living together.
Image
And behind the door is a bathroom, set up with a private shower and toilet as well as a bath for those sims who might enjoy indulging in simple pleasures.
Image
Back in the main room of the main level, it is time to go down stairs and see what awaits there.
Image
As a potential homeowner descends into the lower level, they will see a simple loveseat and bookshelf, perfect for learning on the job or for the pleasure of a book.
Image
And finally that leaves the kitchen, plenty of counter space, with all required appliances already installed.
Image

Should a potential home buyer be interested, it is listed at the low, low price of 19,892 and as stated above, there is always room for growth with Terra Nova City Council Starter Homes

Okay, my 'starter' home is a 'girls only' themed pad, designed for that young, single and girly female sims living alone. The style is chic, but affordable, with a pink and white colour scheme.
Lot Value, $21,000

Spoiler:
Image

Starting off with the Living Room, you can see beautiful pink decorative wallpapers, plush white sofa's and a phenomenal fireplace. Perfect for those girly nights in watching movies with wine with the girls!

Image

And at the back of the living room is a bit more open plan space for hobbies, such as reading and yoga.

Image

Moving onto the bathroom, you'll find it simple, but fit for a princess. The pink tiles really add that royal princess look.

Image

The bathroom comes fitted with a fullsize bathtub, with a wonderful window view.

Image

The next room is the Kitchen. Small, and affordably decorated but with a comfortable and homely feel.

Image

And last, but not least - the bedroom. The room is spacious, yet adequately furnished for a sim to live in style. From the princess bed, to the elegant dresser.

Image

We can guarantee you wont have any issues sleeping in this beautiful bedroom.

This pink little urban cottage is perfect for any young adult looking to make a start in the city!

Spoiler:
Image
The outside of the home offers a covered deck with a dining area and seat for lounging. Bushes, rocks, flowers, and a beautiful cherry tree adorn the yard!

Image
Step inside and you'll see the quaint, efficiently designed kitchen.

Image
Image
A little living area fitted with a couch and television is situated right next to the kitchen.

Image
Image
Everything you'd need from bathroom and bedroom can be found in the house as well!

This house can be yours for just $18,464, leaving you with just enough to cover whatever you'll need to advance in your new big city career!
Yay!

My original starter home was pink, but I noticed there were a few pink-themed entries, so I built a new house. My entry is a 16.5k house on a 2x1 lot.

My house, including the staging furniture and accessories, can be yours for just §19856! :sly:
Spoiler:
This home features a low-maintenance front yard, a major plus for young Sims starting out!
Image

Around back is a covered patio, perfect for summer barbecues, plus it provides a welcome space for skilling, crafting and hobby pursuits, all protected from the elements (never mind that there's no rear-door access yet)! There's also a mature Breadfruit Tree, complete with hack to prevent it from catching eternal fire!
Image

The front entry leads to a cozy living room that still has room for everything a Sim starting out could ever need!
Image

There are window coverings throughout, and from the refinished hardwood floors to the charming front door, this home has many upgraded features!
Image

Accent walls throughout add a welcome punch of color and interest to even the tiniest space!
Image

Upgraded cabinets, sink and appliances in the kitchen!
Image

The fridge? Of course, it's an older home, so even upgraded kitchens can have "unique" configurations without an entire remodel!
Image

The cozy bedroom is conveniently located directly off the kitchen! ( :tongue: )
Image

The bathroom has been completely re-tiled in pristine white - no room for a sink, but hey, it's The Sims :wink: !

Who wouldn't want to start a new life in Sunset Valley living right by the beach? Well, a new tiny beach house just popped up at 9 Sun Song Avenue that could be perfect for you!
Spoiler:
Image
This tiny beach shack has an open-concept first floor, a large upstairs bedroom, and a rooftop patio for soaking up those beautiful ocean views.
Image
Bird's eye view of the first floor.
Image
Bird's eye view of the bedroom and rooftop patio.
Image
The cozy kitchen and dining area.
Image
A little music and reading nook.
Image
Tired after a long day of catching the waves? Curl up with some good old-fashioned television!
Image
The bathroom may not be exciting, but it sure is necessary!
Image
Climb on up the ladder to rest your weary bones and prepare for another day of fun in the sun!
Image
Gussy up over in the beauty corner, then relax on your very own rooftop patio!
Image
The perfect place to relax and grill up some delicious, freshly-caught fish!
Image
If vegetables are more your style, there's even room for a tiny garden and a fire pit out back.
Image
Just can't beat that ocean view!

Now, land near the beaches of Sunset Valley happens to be very expensive, so despite all the scrimping and saving that went into building and furnishing this lot, it's still a touch over $20,000. On the Sunset Valley lot I used, it was priced at around $23,500 (I forgot to note the proper value), but the copy I saved to my library has a value of $21,019. I really tried to keep it under $20,000, but it still looks like a starter home so...it still counts, right? :shhh:
