* Start Somewhere


Yes... I know... "WTF is that Lily????"

It's a house. A very empty, very unstyled, very *don't got no plants* house... I built it for the Start Somewhere Challenge at Living Sims. A very simple, but extremely challenging challenge, to create a starter home with no (or hardly any) third party custom content - and come in under a specific budget - that budget depending on how many bedrooms and whether they were singles or doubles. I managed it. Just.

Other people managed to furnish theirs, rather beautifully - and that pissed me off enough to make me refurb this one completely... OVER BUDGET.... way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over budget :)

It's all finished, and as much as I wanted to include pictures of it and a link to the download in this post - I have yet to make sure that I've managed to get a complete list of any premium content from the store, that has ended up in it. However, I will offer you a sneaky peeky at the bottom of this page, along with the link to the  download of the naked house that you currently see before you.





If you'd like this naked shell of a house for your own game, you'll find it HERE.

Sneaky Peeky of the revamped version...

  1. I love that house, Lily! I think I've actually seen it (or something similar) in some houseplan books that I have, and I've always thought it was super cool! You did an amazing job on it, and I am totally downloading it when I get home today. :-D Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I'm glad you like it, Jen - you're dead right, it's from a plan - though I've altered the interior layout (twice). I made it for Sims 2, many, many moons ago but it didn't work as well.

  5. Lily I have a favor to ask :) I tweaked and decorated this house you made and was wondering if you would mind if I shared it on my blog? All credit for the build will go to you of course :)

    1. No worries, Kim - go for it - I think I saw the makeover you gave it a while back, unless you've done it again and differently? Come back and share a link to your blog page when you've uploaded it, I'd love to see it again xx
