I made a second build on my last building kick. The challenge this time wasn’t color, it was trying to use mainly base game stuff and only a few other packs. (I started making this before the new pack but it looks pretty good in Strangerville.)
This build was semi-inspired by a brief shot of a house in Far Cry at a radio station that I was half-watching. I loved the way it was built over the rocks and was curious if that was possible. It had that lovely apocalyptic look, but I wasn’t really able to follow through on that.
I am particularly pleased that I managed to get the differently shaped columns to place and look okay. Though I really wish they would auto-shrink/grow to whatever was above them.
The house is really interestingly shaped. The living areas are split three-ways. Half upstairs, half outside, and then the last bit (bedroom areas) downstairs. I added a rocket to build outside.
The upstairs interior is really simple and cozy. You walk into the kitchen/dining.
And the living area is in the far back.
With all the windows on this floor the only place for a bathroom is on the first floor. Which you can only get to from the front walkway. Inside I managed to squeeze in two whole bedrooms as well as the bathroom.
There’s a kids room – which would also work as a spare room for a single sim or couple without kids.
And a very plain master bedroom. This house does use Moo, but only when absolutely necessary so it feels a little plain where I didn’t use it.
I love the new tub/shower, even if it doesn’t really fit all that well here. I couldn’t help but use it. I think this is the only Strangerville item.
The outdoor space is broken into two spaces. The downstairs extended living area.
It’s got a little dance space inside away from the rain. And a worktable tucked into the corner (that was what needed Moo – the bar I think needed it as well). I love this little gazebo-esk spot.
Upstairs is the relaxation area. A little yoga and a little painting overlooking the rest of the town.
Looking through these shots – I think I forgot a trashcan. Oops. However it is already on the gallery under ra3rei. I named it Lofty Dreams becuase of the rocket. It costs §55,807 and uses Get to Work (the fence), Strangerville (tub), and mostly Spa Day.
