New! Ovation

Ovation is another Sunlit Tides modern home available for download in My Studio.
This home is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath house that features furnishings in all rooms, garden area, spa-size bathroom and modern amenities with upgraded appliances and fixtures.

There are more pictures available on my YouTube Channel.  I created a video showcase that you can watched directly by clicking here.

The home is CC FREE and contains store content from Ultra Lounge Youth, Zen Again, Collectionne Stanke and other odds and ends.  Because I used Sunlit Tides plants for the outdoors, I would highly recommend having the world for the lot to keep it's look.  Other store content can be replaced.

The lot has also been fully play-tested.

Recommended Expansions: Late Night, Generations, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, University Life, Island Paradise
Recommended Stuff Packs: High-End Loft & Outdoor Living Stuff

Happy Simming!

Picture of the Day

Although I'm spending ample time building, I thought I'd share a random photo of what one of my sims, Cecelia Giacomo, is actually up to when I'm not building.  I've been re-exploring World Adventures (haven't played since it's original release).

In other news, I have a total of 5 (yes, five... sigh) works-in-progress.  They're all residential and three, you may be happy to know, are traditional builds.

I'll be sure to share progress when I feel like the homes are photo-ready.  Check back soon!

NEW! Cobalt

Cobalt is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath modern home.  Amenities include a pool with waterfall, hot tub, modern furnishings and upgraded appliances/fixtures.

The home was built on 65 Sand Road in Lucky Palms and costs 65,092 simoleans when purchased furnished.

There is no custom content in the home, but I did use the following store items:

Haute Hip Bedroom
Giant Bosai Tree - FREE
Alpha Waves Aquarium
Aurora LushStyle Sconce
Fjordnord Tier Set (from Aurora Skies)
II-Stand Bookshelf
Palm In Vase
Textophobia Taunts Wall Sculpture
Aromatic Stove
Cushy Cushion Loveseat
Cushy Cushion Chair
Murano Retro and Ripe Fruit Bowl
Overly General Dining Chair
Home On the Range Grill
Bamboo Grove Mirror
Simetry Seater
Hosomaki Counter
Nightly Light
Theo's Contempo Round Table
I believe that is the whole list of store items.  :)

And last, the home has been fully play-tested and all appliances and bathroom fixtures have been upgraded.  I did leave the 2nd bedroom empty for downloaders to customize themselves.  The room can be a 2nd bedroom, a nursery or an office and provide versatile space for sims that want to have opportunity to grow in the house and live there longer.

And now on to the pics!

I'm On A Roll

I have two moderns I'm working on that I'm to a point that I want to share them!  It is feeling good to build again, but I'll admit, my long absence caused me to forget a lot of build cheats and techniques that I'm having to refresh myself on.

This first house I started working on doesn't have the roof style I want so there will be some major changes to this house where the roof is concerned.

And this next house was originally built to re-learn a certain build cheat that I'd forgotten.  I angled the roof using a couple of game build cheats and I'd like to do something similar with the darker house.  But even though I originally built this house just as a practice run, I continued to play around with it and a really cool house started to form!

Want to know a builder's secret?? Most success in building turns out to be "happy accidents" or things that weren't planned.  That's the best thing, sometimes, when building in Sims 3.

Anyway, that's all for now.  I'll update likely tomorrow with another picture update.

New! Lime In The Coconut

The song which was stuck in my head while creating the house can be viewed on YouTube.

Lime in the Coconut is available for download via My Studio

Although this home was originally built in Isla Paradiso, the ridiculous amount of lag that town has forced me to reformat the home and I finished it in Sunlit Tides.  This home is perfectly suited and looks better (in my opinion) in Sunlit Tides.  The 40x40 lot called "The Sandy Beach" is where this house should be placed for the best aesthetics.

Lime in the Coconut is a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath modern home with killer views of the beach and ample outdoor space to enjoy it in.

**No CC or CAP patterns were used in this home, but this home does include store content from the following sets:
Sunlit Tides World
Mid-Century Modern Bathroom
Ultra Lounge Bathroom
Sun, Surf & Sand
Tiki Outdoor Party
Hibiscus Trio

And other odds and ends pieces that are more optional.

Recommended Expansions:
AMB, LN, Pets, Gen, SN, Seasons, UL, IP and OLS Stuff Pack

The cost of this home is 78,969 simoleans with furnishings.

Put the Lime In the Coconut...

Thanks to Harry Nilsson's "Put The Lime in The Coconut" my WIP has become a Modern.  While having this song in my head, I have revamped the house and I'm nearly done.

Here's the sneak peek of what's to come in a day or two:

It will have 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, outdoor space with a fire pit and a spacious 2-car garage.  I have a bathroom and two bedrooms to finish, but I may leave one empty for downloaders to customize. :)

Check back soon, thanks for stopping by and as always  Happy Simming!

Coming Soon!

Now that I have Island Paradise, I decided it would be fitting to build a coastal home to match the new town.  (Well, new town to me.)

Not sure what I'm going to call this one, but this is "rough draft" of the house.  The color scheme may change and I may decide to make it more modern...  The windows and doors are modern, but the colors are more traditional.  So I really don't know it which direction I'll take this house since I can't seem to make up my mind between Traditional and Modern...

We'll see.

New! The Retreat

The Retreat is a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath log cabin featuring ample living space, green house, optional In-Law suite over the garage and more!

The Retreat is CC Free but does contain just a few Store World items, which aren't necessary to download the house.  The expansions needed include AMB, LN, GEN, Pets, SN, Season, and UL.

The home was built on 1005 Pomona Promenade in Appaloosa and costs 117,814 simoleans with furnishings.

Here are two pictures of the front and back of the house.  I had to crop out the garage because I didn't want a skewed cover picture for the actual item.  And the back of the house has some nice architectural features that don't show well on the item images.


Please be sure to recommend/favorite.  And as always, thanks for your support!

Happy Simming!
