Pinteresting

Basically this is just a few things I liked from pinterest shoved into one house. I don’t have a good name for it either, obviously. I made a sim but don’t remember her name.

House Information & Description:
This little plain jane house is in a neighborhood of similarly dressed plain jane houses. With new soft and hard scaping and a completely new and updated interior, iEven though it’s quite cozy, there’s still plenty of room in and out for lots of visiting friends, plus it’s much prettier.

  • Location: ?×? lot on uncharted island Beryl Shoals in Isla Paradisio.
  • Parking:  2 vehicle (1 in garage, 1 out), 1 bike
  • Views are of the surrounding neighborhood and equally externally ugly houses.
  • Preview pics are in the folder with the rest of the photos.
  • Outside of this little abode, there’s a new covered stoop area where previously there was just a flat wall with a door. The hedges have been slightly altered and several rose bushes have been added, along with awnings on both sets of side windows. Around back, where previously there was just a big open space without even a back door, there is now a big entertaining space with a ground level brick patio for hanging out and for sunbathing, and a slightly raised deck with foliage covered pergola for dining and grilling. Even with all that and the added art studio, there’s still plenty of green space. Hedges have been added to block off the view of the back neighbor’s yard.
  • Inside the overall theme is white, pastel pink, navy blue, and gold accents. To the right of the front door is the kitchen with gold stove hood, open shelving, and a small round dining table. Past the kitchen is the garage with laundry, a work bench, and a door to the back yard. To the left of the front door is the living space with a cool navy fireplace (the texture of which is like the walls in this room, though its hard to tell from the screenshots) and a neat coffee table. There’s also a hallway to the backyard. To the left of the hallway is a full bath and to the right is a bedroom with retro furniture and a pink ceiling.
  • Out back is a separate artist’s studio with comfy furniture, plenty of storage, and a glass roof. It has its own AC.

Coates

ALL PICS. LOOK AT ‘EM. { Opens new window.

House Information & Description:
This large mansion is home to the Coates family, affluent islanders ready to party.

  • Price: $? furnished / $? unfurnished (will fill in later)
  • Address: 15 Dolphin Lane
  • Size: 60×60
  • Rooms: 4 bed, 5 full/2 half bath, cinema, game room, formal dining, office, gym, laundry
  • Parking: 4 car garage, tons of parking in driveway.
  • Views out the windows show the landscaped yards, the ocean in the distance, and the surrounding neighborhood and hills.
  • On the first floor there’s a big foyer with ceiling leading to third floor. On the right are a therapist’s home office with waiting room and half. Straight ahead is the formal living room. To the left is the large kitchen with breakfast nook and sitting area. It has a hallway down to the in-house cinema room and is adjacent to the enclosed formal dining room.
  • On the second floor is a long hallway and an opening to downstairs. Looking at the stairs, to the left is the home gym. To the right is a long hallway with the two boys, Benny’s and Chase’s suites, which contain a small foyer, bedroom and full bath. Further is a small library and a tiny closet. Next is Yasmin’s suite with foyer, bedroom, full bath, and dressing room. At the end of the hall is the kid’s game room.
  • On the third floor is a hallway area with an opening to downstairs. The first door is to Loren and Joanne’s master suite with dressing room, full bath, and bedroom with seating areas in it. The second door is to the laundry room.
  • Inside the garage there’s space for 4 cars. The garage also houses the pool house, a two story section of the garage containing a foosball table downstairs and a sitting area and massage table upstairs.
  • Outside there is a big circle drive out front leading to the 3 car garage. In back, there’s a good sized yard, a fountain, a gigantic party area with huge pool (with its own island), an in-pool bar, a firepit, a big covered outdoor kitchen, lounge area, and outdoor living room w/ fireplace. There’s also a big pen for two dogs.
  • Loren: A/M, father, ceo somewhere
  • Joanne: A/F, mother, therapist (no real profession just pretending)
  • Yasmin: YA/F, child of both, spoiled elder kid of the family
  • Benny: YA/M, child of both, high achiever and student
  • Chase: YA/M, child of both, rebellious slacker

Notes:

  • This house is built completely from scratch. It was hard work but fun and I’m really pleased with it.
  • This house makes my already bogged down game run SO SLOW or I would probably have a gigantic party back here and lock all the doors so everyone had to enjoy the huge backyard.
  • If I do that, I should put a bathroom in the first floor of the pool house. I should do that anyway for convenience. No one wants to run through nearly the entire first floor and most of the second floor of an air conditioned house dripping with pool water to change or pee.
  • This house has a lot of little closets where odd spots ended up from building from the outside in. I should probably make one in the sharp corner between the dining room and breakfast nook.
  • The things on either side of the media center in the cinema are a fridge and a cabinet for snacks. The bookshelf is pretending to be a DVD shelf.
  • I love building multi-story openings but they’re a pain to photograph. I’m also not sure why the second story foyer windows decided halfway through that they didn’t want to display properly anymore.
  • I didn’t mean for Yasmin’s suite to be so much bigger than the boy’s but since it is I decided she’s just spoiled. Maybe she’s actually the oldest.
  • This family had a collie named Carpenter but because I accidentally walked away with autonomy off, I came back to everyone red and Carpenter taken away. 😦 I couldn’t readopt him for a while so I was going to cheat and take him in on another family then transfer him back to the Coates..es.. but I felt like the nice old couple I put him with would appreciate him more, probably.

Notes:

  • Built from scratch. I used to really like building on hills.
  • These aren’t truly supernatural sims. Genetically they’re just human. I really like their slightly lilac-skinned, moonkissed look, though. I no longer have them but have considered remaking them. Maybe in Moonlight Falls.

Hecker/Lane: France

House Information:

  • Price:
  • Size: 30×40

  • Floor one has a small entryway with coat rack which leads into the living room/dining room with door leading to the back yard and garden. Off of one end of the living room is the kitchen. Also off the living room is a full bath with washing machine. Attached but with an entrance from the patio is a storage room with stairs leading down to the wine cellar.

Uncharged Island: Plunder Cove

House Information & Description:
This quaint little home has modern styling with more traditional furnishings.

  • Location: 64×64 lot on uncharted island Plunder Cove in Isla Paradisio.
  • Parking:  4 aquatic
  • Before Construction photo is here. Link is from here, I never think to take befores.
  • Views are of the surrounding islands and ocean.
  • Outside starts with a covered dock which has the mailbox, a sign that (I pretend) has the island name on it, space for a boat and 2 ski doos. It has a picnic table, bbq grill, and also a branch with space for lounge chairs. Down the path to the right (what I consider the back way of going to the house) is the water house with facilities and past that, an outdoor shower before arriving at the house. Down the path to the left of the dock is a private beach with a table and chairs. Past that and down small side paths are a hot tub and an observation/lounge area on top of the hill. Going down the path, if you ignore this smaller hill path, is the house and a fourth spot for a watercraft. This is where guests would probably park.
  • Inside the home is a nice living/dining room in a calming blue and wicker theme, a small half galley kitchen, a fairly girly bedroom and a small office.  The bedroom and livingroom have garage doors that fully open to let in the sea air. Inside the building down the path are the facilities and a washer.

Notes:

  • Built from scratch.
  • There isn’t currently a family in this home.
  • This one started out with the house built right next to the beach area with a bright copper/orange roof then I realised how much of a giant eyesore it was to the Phyre Moon Beach Cottage and Hecker IP… so I moved it back and made the roof that pretty dark green color. Layout stayed the same.
  • This house is pretty small and I could’ve made the office into a bathroom, I suppose. It originally was a dressing room with only a connection to the bedroom. I think I need to replace the door going into the bedroom with the 1 tile version of the 2 tile door from the living to the bed room.
  • I like the outdoor shower but I could see it being inconvenient some days. There’s room.. I should move it into the water house with the toilet and laundry.. maybe move the whole house over to where the outdoor shower currently is and reclaim the current water house spot for a lounge area or..something. I don’t know.

Brick Apartments #5

After I built the Hawkins Art Gallery, I was still on a old.. downtown building.. kick and ended up deleting the boring town square in Hidden Springs and making 6 more brick buildings on 5 lots.. all of them apartment buildings.

4 apartments
4 parking spaces

  • Floor 0 is the basement with gym/game room and laundry for residents.
  • Floor 1 contains two apartments. Flat 1 is an economy 1 bed/bath with a tiny patio, flat 2 is a slightly larger economy 1 bed/bath with a tiny yard.

  • Notes:
    +
    Built from scratch. I don’t currently have anything that truly makes this an apartment, I just wanted it to seem like one for now. There are separate ‘families’ living here, locked out of the flats they’re not supposed to be in.
    + I should’ve put a hall between apartments 1 and 2 that had a door leading to better access to the central park. Oh well. Done. Jiggered some stuff around.

Brick Apartments #4

After I built the Hawkins Art Gallery, I was still on a old.. downtown building.. kick and ended up deleting the boring town square in Hidden Springs and making 6 more brick buildings on 5 lots.. all of them apartment buildings.

Apartment Information:
20 x 41 lot at 59 Subalpine Boulevard, Hidden Springs
8 apartments
7 parking spaces

Apartment Description:
These two four floor walk-ups are great for a few families who enjoy town living but need a little outdoor space (via balconies).

  • Views are of the town, lake, and small park out in the middle of all the buildings.
  • Building One (white):
    Floors one and two both have 2 bed, 2 bath flats.
    Floor three has a 2 bed, 1.5 bath flat.
    Floor four has a 3 bed, 2 bath flat.
  • Building Two (brown):
    Floors one, three, and four
    have 1 bed, 1.5 bath flats.
    Floor two
    has a 1 bed, 1 bath flat.
  • Outside, there’s a little bit of green space between the buildings and each floor (apartment) has its own small balcony.
  • Notes:
    +Built from scratch. I don’t currently have anything that truly makes this an apartment, I just wanted it to seem like one for now. There’s a family of 8 or 9 living on it, each ‘family’ is locked out of the apartments that aren’t theirs. Post build, for some reason I made all of the residents of building 2 all tall skinny models somewhat themed to their respective apartments (which allowed me to use some hair/clothing i rarely get a good chance to use). The ones of building 1 are mostly just randomized.
    + These are two buildings on one lot. The white building’s apartments are rather bland but the brown building’s apartments have had a little more thought put into their decor.
    + I also just realised the inside of the white brick building consists mostly of shades of brown and the brown building’s interior is mostly white.
    + Kinda wishing I’d kept the Native American inspired furniture bedecked apartment’s floors white like the rest for more cohesiveness.

Brick Apartments #2

After I built the Hawkins Art Gallery, I was still on a old.. downtown building.. kick and ended up deleting the boring town square in Hidden Springs and making 6 more brick buildings on 5 lots.. all of them apartment buildings.
