I'm moving along with the big Victorian and have a majority of the outside of the lot complete. This home is going to be CC Free, but will contain tons of store items and items from Midnight Hollow.
This house is actually a real house - my house! We were out of power yesterday thanks to the bad weather going through our area (we got ice but no snow) so while the power was out I sketched out our floor plan on graph paper and started building it in-game this morning when the power came back on.
I'm really proud of this house so far, because it very true to the real thing. The only difference is I chose to make a brick accent in the game on the outside that we don't really have. I wanted to break up all the siding with the brick, and now I wish our house had it. And because we've only been in our house just under a year, all our plants don't look as good as they do in the game (because it's Winter, for one) because the plants are still young. But I'd like to think in a few years our plants will look more like they do in the Sims 3.
This house WILL contain 3rd Part CC. It's one window and one set of shutters since I wanted to make the front as close to what ours looks like as possible. Everything else will be store and expansion content.
