* Magnolia Heights

I'm on a roll... having a clear out... sorting my game files... I have cake to eat and no time to eat it.

This one's a bit like the tardis - bigger on the inside. It has 3-4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It's unfurnished as I haven't built it for any sim in particular, I just built it to fill a gap, and because I could. It's not the prettiest of *lots*, but it fits in perfectly to the somewhat swampy atmosphere in Twinbrook - and you can always change the colours to suit your own game!

* Prudence Place

Unbelievably, this is a new build! Yes - I do build residential lots from scratch too... occasionally. This one was for the Prudence family, from Twinbrook. I really didn't see the point of the lot they were in, big space, small house, bit crabby and dingy. I used the *wandhere* cheat that's a part of awesomemod, to lower the price of the place.

* If I only had a heart...

Meet Jed. You'll never see him again after this image, I deleted him. Jed was purchased by Fatty Simovitch with her reward points for going platinum on her lifetime wish (I forget what it was - a thousand best friends or something). I thought he might add an element of interest to my game. Jed survived long enough for me to build and decorate a room for him... eat some trash... attempt to sleep in Betty's bed... and visit the local junk yard.

* Riverview Chapel

Now that Generations has given us Wedding Arches, there's a gamut of Wedding Chapels out there. I thought I'd join in and build one for Riverview, that sits happily alongside the other Riverview Community Lots that I've built. It took at least five goes to get it functioning properly, as I forgot that when you give a sim more than one option of *purpose* on a lot - he'll pick any thing to do, other than the thing you want him to do.... in this case, at my first wedding, the entire party pissed off below stairs to the bar that I'd built... whilst the unhappy couple got married without an audience....

* Triple Trouble - Round 1

The LivingSims Forum, currently has a contest running to decorate a pre-built home (downloadable for both Sims 2 and 3) and I thought I might have a go. I wouldn't usually, because there's a deadline. I'm a bit crap with deadlines. It's a personality defect that I must aim for just after a deadline, or not aim at all. Don't give me a deadline, and I'll get it done. Go figure...

* Simply Betty - Home Alone! - Part Six

After a while, life began to settle into a pattern for Bob and Betty... an eratic pattern. Betty's unsociable work hours meant that they had very little time together. Bob's Architecture and Interior Design business was slowly taking off, and required a great deal of his attention too. So much so, that Betty abandoned her own home and took to spending more time at Bob's. Which was okay when his parents weren't around, but Betty got the distinct impression that Robert and Mags Newbie didn't think she was good enough for their *Darling Boy*.

* Betty's Kitchen

You wouldn't believe how many photos I've taken of this kitchen. Literally HUNDREDS. For the life of me, I couldn't work out why I didn't really like any of them - turns out, I'd left the walls a plain white colour and had had a major brain fart that thought I'd finished the room when I hadn't. This kind of shit happens to me all the time, only in real life. Which is much more fun... but slightly more costly.
