PostSubject: Beach Front lot   Fri Jan 15, 2010 2:50 am

I am building a beach front home on light house blvd. This is not really a cabin but a bit more modern beach home. I am going for a somewhat weathered, casual, simple home... I originally thought to keep it under the starter budget, but of course, that flew out the window when I started putting in the windows along with the stairs!! I have also tried playing with cfe... not a pleasant experience! Even the little dog ran off from me when I started swearing!! Poooor little Butters thought he had once again been caught in the act of misbehaving- only, this time he couldn't figure out what it was he did!!!

This is the version I started


Then after a few suggestions that the stairs were overpowering, I have come up with this version



This is the interior layout.

Looks good! I really like the new stairs. I can't wait to see it finished!

Well, here is the latest progress on my beach lot. I know, I was initially planning to do the interior first then the landscaping, but once I got started, I had a hard time tearing myself away from the landscaping!!

Ok, I've moved one of my more favorite sims in to live there while I build and test the entire lot. Angela Monier has moved to the beach property for now.



the two fenced spaces here will be small garden areas.

Thanks Julia. I have a few things left to do on the landscaping but it is almost done. I don't want to mess with it too much more because I want to keep that natural nonlandscaped feeling.

Oh wow that is really nice! I think there were too many stairs at the beginning but it looks great. (not like it didn't before.) I like all the windows and how they overlook the ocean. I like the loft a lot. And the landscaping is beautiful. I see those surfboards are getting around. Very Happy I haven't used them yet...but I have them. Seeing your build really makes me want to just play for a while. Let me know when I can dl it.

Thanks everyone!! flower It's been so cold here that I wanted to spend some time where it felt warm at least!! Today, I am going to finish the landscaping and then start on the interior! I'm hoping to get it ready to upload by tonight or tomorrow morning!! I am planning to add a community beach next door to it which hopefully include a public swimming area! That may take a while to get figured out!!! But, anyway, that's why there's no pool or anything on this private lot!

It's looking great! The landscaping is perfect, I love that you have the lounge chairs on the beach, and the fire pit will be fun for parties!

Cera, thanks!! I was debating whether to change or add anything to the landscaping but now I think I'll let it be other than the few small details like the garden plots!

I really like this beach house! The landcaping is lovely, you can't grow too much on the beach so you have got it just right. You are right tweek those surfboards really got around. Very Happy There is also a truck with surfboards in the back, looks great parked on these beachy lots. sunny

I love emoticons! I love you

Thanks Cera!! Although, then if I were going to use it in this build, I would have to figure out a driveway area!!! Shocked Shocked scratch
