So, as some of you know.. I’ve been on a roll building. And building.. and building.. and building. Decorating and furnishing.. not so much. But I sure have house shells a-plenty. Some are farther along than others, some even have landscaping, one has one entire floor furnished and an empty upstairs. Anyway. I wanted to collect my thoughts a little, and list them all here.. sort of as a preview for what’s going to be decorated and uploaded soon.
If you have a favorite you want to see finished before the others, comment and let me know and I’ll move it to the top of the list. Right now the list is pretty random, I’m just decorating as I get inspired.
Imps Place Vampire Lair
This one has been re-done at least three times already. I won’t bother posting the old versions, as they’re just .. bad. I will add a teaser photo of the beginnings of the dungeon (it’s not completed yet).
New Mission Mansion
This is probably one of my favorites of all of these builds. It’s also currently the closest to being done. (It’s the one mentioned above with the floor furnished). So this will probably be the first one uploaded. Providing the inspiration for the upstairs hits me, of course.
On a side note, it’s also probably taken the most time out of all of these. The upstairs had to be redone several times before I finally approved, and the roofline took forever to get just right.
Tudor Family Home
This was a fun build. As the first Tudor I’d ever built, it was a bit challenging, but luckily the floorplan I had found was pretty accurate and translated well. Of note: the second floor of the front is supposed to be stone, too, it’s been fixed since these photos.
That was the only name I could think up on the fly. Should be easy to decorate, except for the fact I have no idea what to do with the garage. Maybe turn it into a basketball court…?
Luxury Party House
This one has had the roof changed in color since this photo. It was too bland, so it’s now a darker orange/sandish color. I plan to decorated this one based around the Lux Party Stuff Pack, since I NEVER use that pack.. and I had to find a house that had a spare room large enough to serve as a party room. Also of note: I just figured out how to do skylights, so I will probably be adding a few for architectural interest, since for some reason this house seems terribly plain. to me.
A shot of the re-done with skylights product. MUCH better. *grin*
A fun build, but a challenge to get just right.
Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous
That’s sort of the working title for this one. Don’t ask how long it took to build. Or what on earth I’m going to do with the rest of the lot. The greenhouse is due for some expansion.. and landscaping. Beyond that, I have no idea. The interior will take forever to decorate. There’s also a basement with a full butler suite… because you’re going to need one in this house.
Crazy Cat Lady Bungalow
Pretty self-explanatory. Will be focused around the “my first pet” pack and .. well, being a crazy cat lady. Obviously designed for a single sim and lots of cats.
Castle Tower Tudor House
This is a house my hubby picked out for me to build. I ended up adding a few interest features and changing around the floorplan a bit. It’s also been fully landscaped since these photos.
House of Many Roofs
Also known as the Victorian Monster. Another house my hubby picked. Both titles are accurate. Also: I tried to put this house on the umbrage manor lot, but for some reason the outdoor lighting was being weird. Never seen that happen before, but the whole lot looked like I was seeing it through a green filter. Really wanted it on the bigger lot, but I couldn’t get good pics of it, so I moved it back to parkshore. I repaired my game, so maybe that’ll fix it when I get back in? (Spoiler: it doesn’t.)
I have another five lots picked out to build, then I’m going to settle in to decorating for a while. I’ve definitely got my work cut out for me, though!
