Oh, The Weather Outside Is (Not So) Frightful

I don't know how weather (in real life, not your Sims' lives) is going, but for me it is depressingly warm, not at all how I wish the month of December should feel like.  I live on the Southern coast of the USA and although it isn't beach season anymore, the weather certainly makes you think otherwise.

Because of all this warm weather I started a beach build - I know, completely building out-of-season here, but oh well!

And if I changed all the white railing and windows and such, I bet this could also make a cute Winter-y log cabin.  But for now, this is headed towards the beach theme.

Don't Be Such A Tease!

Well, it is what it is, folks! I'm a big tease - in the most modest sense!

Coming soon is this house which I've been slowly (and I mean slowly) working on.  I've got a good start to landscaping, I think.  Some of you may recognize this home as a past post back in October or so when Supernatural first came out.
That's how slowly I'm working on this house.

And please ignore the eye-sore of an ice cream truck that manages to sit in front of every house I have sims in.

This home will be a family-friendly 4(ish) bedroom home located on 126 Wood Street in Supernatural's town.

I Have A Confession ...

I know I haven't been around my blog lately.  At all.  In a long time.

But there's not really a good reason for it. I promise!

Okay, so .... here's my confession.


I've been playing World of Warcraft.  I know! You're all probably like "wut?" and I'm all absorbed in my nerd-dom, trying to kick serious butt with my level 83 Priest to answer that.

The game's been out since like, what, 2004?  But I just got into playing it the last couple of months and a new expansion came out and I've been somewhat unabashedly involved in this game.

But fear not; I have been building, I haven't given up on Sims 3 it's just that I'm not building as much as I was previously to being introduced to WoW (<---that's short-hand for World of Warcraft.  See what I did there? I used Nerd jargon)

Anyway, I have some builds coming up soon so don't be a stranger to the blog.  I just wanted those that still follow me to be aware that my little bit of free time that once was occupied with Sims 3 now shares time (nay, fights to the death!) with World of Warcraft.

Do you WoW???

New! - Adam, A 90's Family Home

Hello Again!

One of my homes is now available for download through My Studio via the Sims 3 website.

Adam is a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath traditional American home designed with the early 90's flare.  It is also CC Free and Store Content Free and requires only the Generations Expansion Pack.

YouTube Showcase is available to watch, which contains more pictures of the lot.

Please feel free to download and recommend!

Thanks for your support and Happy Simming,

3 WIPs - One Coming Soon!

I have three builds I'm currently in the middle of - two are for me, for a story I'll be playing out in-game so I may even upload the households as options to play as well!

The house above is being built by request and will have a 90's style decor inside, so the interiors may not be up to snuff on everyone's taste.  But I still hope it'll be appealing to download and play for other Simmers.  It'll have 4 bedrooms/3 baths.

This is a small Gothic Revival home I'm building for my witch-sim and her cat: Kylee and Bingley.  It's only a one bedroom, one bath cottage, but has ample attic space for studying the dark arts! This one will be ready for uploading in a day or two, max.

The last is a mansion that I'm building for my legacy family - although I haven't played my legacy family in a long time I was thinking I'd kinda start from scratch and turn the family fortunes over to a distant relative NPC that's in my family bin and start playing her.  There's a catch, too!  The home will be haunted by my legacy's sire: Captain Tom Calico! There isn't a set time as to when this one will be finished, but I'm hoping before Halloween!

All these lots will be CC Free and the first home pictured, will only have Base Game and Generations items only.

Have a Happy Week!

Summer Breeze - Now Available!

Hi All!
Long time no see, but I'm back for a second to show another house.

This one was built by request, but I lost contact with the individual who requested it so I decided to go ahead and upload it, although it's not complete.

There's a good start to the home that allows players to customize the home as they see fit.  And if the original person who requested this gets in contact with me and wants me to finish it, I gladly will. :)

This home is based off a floor plan from ICI Homes and features many options for growing families.

Here's the Quick-Specs to the house:
  • 4 bedroom/4.5 bath
  • Large Bonus Room
  • Spacious floor plan for a family of 5+
  • 2 car garage
  • Office room with exra attached bathroom OR optional 5th bedroom
  • Fully furnished Living, Dining, Kitchen and Family Rooms
  • Bedrooms and bathrooms empty for personal customization
  • Master Suite located on main floor
  • 105,627 Simoleans
  • Built on 2500 Pinochle Point in SV
Requires AMB, LN, PETS, ST

(Click on images to enlarge)

This home contains CC from many talented creators, namely the windows on the home are from Cyclonesue.  CC has been tested safe, the home has been play-tested as well.

Because of the amount of CC this is another home that is only available from MediaFire.

Happy Simming

Now Available - Trissino... And Coming Soon....

I have a new home to share, this one has been sitting for months in-game, waiting for me to finish it and I just don't think it'll get there. Life has been so hectic recently.

So, I figure, since it's partially furnished and most of the grunt work is done, others might enjoy the home and decorating the unfinished spots themselves.  It's namely the bedrooms and bathrooms that aren't complete.

So, I present you ....


  • 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms
  • 167,889 Simoleans
  • Partially Furnished
  • CC Free
  • Contains Store Content
  • Gym & Rec Room
  • Ample outdoor space ready for customization
  • Perfect for a large family

This home is available for download through MediaFire only, as The Exchange is acting up for me today.  Since it was only partially furnished, there is no YouTube video for it.

And here's a sneak peek at a home that will be available soon!

*This home will be unfurnished and CC Free*

Enjoy & Happy Simming!

My 100th Post!

This marks my 100th post for this blog. 0_0 Wow!

It's been awhile since I've checked in and posted on my blog, but I've just been so crazy-busy, as it can get for all of us.  

I'm trying to get back to building, though my attention isn't always there.  I'm too excited for all the new stuff we'll be getting when Supernatural comes out that I really want to wait on building until I get my greedy fingers on the new EP. 

Anyway, for my 100th post I do have another WIP to share, it's another request I took up, for someone to have a Victorian home.

This home will have WA, LN, Gen, Pets, OLS, TL and MS items only. No CC or Store Content. And the interesting thing about this is the requester actually asked that no cheats be used. Which was very hard - so hard, in fact, that I made one teeny-weeny cheat.

This will be ready for upload this week as I only have the bedrooms and bathrooms to complete.
Happy Simming, you fantastic people, You!

Coming Soon(ish) - Summer Breeze

Althought I'm not quite at the half-way point, I thought to go ahead and share my next WIP that's in progress for another requester.

The home I'm building is based off the home pictures below.  Blueprints for this home can be found at ICI Homes.

This is another large home, but I managed to squeeze this on onto a 40x40 lot.  This is a 6 bedroom home, with about 4 bathrooms.

MY in-game progress so far:

I'm thinking due to the size of bedrooms I'll be pre-occupied with this home through the week.  So when I say "Coming Soon(ish)" I mean it. <LOL>

My goal is to have this done by Friday, but don't hold your breath folks!

Happy Simming!

Martinique - A Mediterranean Home

I have finally finished it!

You can download this home through MediaFire only due to size and amount of CC.

This, to me, was a large request.  It's a big home and every bedroom had it's own full bathroom and the sheer space to design and decorate was over-whelming at times.  I think I pretty much did it, though. :)

There is still room to add some personal touches for downloaders.

Quick View Details:
  • Contains CC
  • Store Content Free
  • Fully Play-tested and checked through Custard
  • 4bedrooms/4bathrooms
  • 3 car garage
  • Pool with Cabana
  • Music Room
  • Hobby Room
  • Walk-Out/Daylight Basement
There are 2 items of Non-Transferable CC you need to download first before downloading the house:

Please take a moment and watch the YouTube Showcase that shows more pictures of the lot.

Happy Simming!

The Polls

A minor note about the polls:
First, I'm so glad to have people come on to vote.  It's very cool to get some feedback about our Simming!

Second, in the recent poll, I left KPST out of the running because I don't consider it a true Stuff Pack.  To me, it's a "Bonus Pack" as it seems to be a continuation of themed content that was left out of Showtime. (And in my honest opinion, it should have been included at no additional cost.)

Anyway, of the two that actually selected the option "Why wasn't KPST added??" please make a comment to this post.

 Oooh! It just got all mysterious in here, didn't it?  "Why am I asking for a comment from those two voters?" You ask? Well, you're not in trouble! (Quite the contrary) But I can't risk saying why yet.  But if you post a comment to this, please include your Sims 3 official screen name for me.

Coming Soon - Martinque

I have a WIP to share, although I think it'll be a few days yet before it's ready.  This one is based on a floor plan a requester provided and is a pretty detailed build.

The home will contain CC but no store content.  And all EPs/SPs up to Showtime will be used in creating this home.

This is a 4BR/4BA home with a spacious walk-out basement.  There is lots of space to furnish in this home so it'll be time-consuming to do the interior.  I'm nearly done with landscaping and I think tomorrow I'll be able to move to designing the interior.

I will keep you posted, folks.

Happy Simming

SimAngel's Build Competition

There are only about 5 days until our competition is closed.  I thought I'd post a final quick invitation to those who may be interested in a generous prize pool.

There is over 5,000 Sim Points that will be gifted in the form of Wish List items up for grabs and you only have to build your version of a home that we provide.  A BIG THANK YOU to blunote00 for her generous sponsorship to this competition.

For details on this build competition, you can visit the thread in Gift Gathering.  If you cannot compete whether you don't feel like you can build or there's a time crunch, please support those that have competed by taking a moment to Rec their creations for their hard work and view what neat things they created out of the floor plan we provided.

There are some amazing entries already, and I hope in the coming  days to see more.  Please join in!

Deuces Wild Club & Casino

Another community lot for Lucky Palms is available.  This time I made a night/dance club since a town similar to Vegas didn't really have any nightlife spots.

This lot is CC Free but contains the following Store items:

Lucky Palms World*
Lucky Palms Casino*
Lucky N' Loveseat
Pierre Alto Bubblicious Floor Lamp
City Never Sleeps (artwork)
Au Courant Stool**
Chilly Chair**

* = Recommended for best functionality
** = Dr. Pepper items/Free items

For best results, place lot on 52 Golf Links Lane in Lucky Palms and change the lot type to "Dance Club" 

I have a YouTube Video Showcase for this lot.

Deuces Wild Club & Casino is available for download through MediaFire & The Exchange.
Please DL/Rec/Fav if you like the new community lot.

Thank you for visiting! Happy Simming!

Progress Report

So, I have an update to my competition build.  If you remember, I told you not too long about about a build competition being held over at The Simmer's Society.

Here's my progress:

As you can see, a good portion of my interior contains CC patterns and furniture/build items.  I love CC.  If EA made this stuff I'd be 10 times more addicted to The Sims. Seriously.

Anyway, I usually don't show my work as it's in progress, but I figure since this is a competition build I can show you as I go.

Speaking of competitions, there is one being held by my build team over in Gift Gathering section of the official forums.  Check it out and see if you want to participate - there's great incentive thanks to Blunote00's generous sponsorship.

Have a Great Weekend!

New! Chaumont - An 'Old World' Home

Hello Again!

I have another build to share with you. This one (built by request) is available through MediaFire and The Exchange.

This home is, what I call, a Mini-Mansion.  With only 2 bedrooms, one master and one nursery, and 1 full bath, this home still manages to provide what a beginning family needs to live in comfort.

*CC Free
*Contains Store Content:

  • Edwardian Expressions Kitchen (set)
  • Regal Living Bath, Kitchen and Bedroom (sets)
  • Harvest Time
  • Forest Curtains
  • Boeuf Gras Dining Chair
  • Old Town Dining Table
  • Fresh Farm Sink
  • Festoon to the Honeymoon
  • Grecian Towels
  • Gothique Painting
  • Oval Gothique
  • Khmer Rug
  • Athena's Olive Tree
  • Velvet Seclusion
  • Not So Private Study Door
  • Shh! It's A Library Door
  • Handicraft Column

*Please Note: Showtime EP is NOT necessary for this home to function. I used the Dark Ash Tree from Build mode which is why the Exchange says that Showtime is required,  however, it's not.  The game will simply populate a (most likely) Base-game tree if you do not have Showtime.

1 CAP Pattern by Blue Murder was used. (It'll be hard to spot in the home but I used it on the Khmer Rug)

I was able to successfully make a video showcase for this home, so please take a moment to Watch The Video.

Thank you for looking
~Happy Simming ~
