165 Sim Lane - The Goth Mansion

It's been awhile since I posted anything new, but I've been in the mood for simming again lately.  It makes some of the best stress relief. :) This is my makeover of the Goth mansion. I really love how it turned out.  I had made some of the changes when I was last playing my Uberhood, but I just ran across it again and decided to finish it.  From what I remember about the original floor plan, I didn't change it a lot.  I added on to provide a downstairs nursery and an upstairs gym/game room.  Mortimer's bedroom was made smaller for a separate office/study.  I also added the garage, which has an upstairs room.  I figured that could be of some use for storing career rewards or something.

Fort Gnome Military Base

I'm finally getting around to posting this lot that I made a few years ago - a military base for Sims 2 based on the Fort Gnome military base in Sims 3. I finished it, but like most things I build, I get about 99% done and get bored and move on before posting it. I had to use my imagination on the inside of the building. Because it's a huge lot and everything is built diagonally, it was a real challenge to furnish it. There is not a lot in there for that reason. I made it into a community lot, but I suppose it could also work as a residential lot.

Apple Grove Gas Station

I've been going through some of my old lots I created, updating them.  I thought while I was doing that, I could be nice and share them.  I made this gas station a few years ago, and I really love how it turned out.  The fun thing is that it also functions as a little restaurant and sells groceries and magazines, cellphones, etc.

DIY Tacky Strip Mall - Mix and Match Sections

Sitting and waiting for my son outside a strip mall recently, my phone was dead and I had nothing to read, so I had nothing to do but observe the building in front of me.  This gave me an idea of making a strip mall for my game.  I decided to make different sections that could be put together - separate buildings that look like one long building (using Mootilda's LotAdjuster).  The building sections can be mixed up to create many different-looking strip malls.  This one is a combination of 2 large and 3 small buildings with two different roof styles.

3 Affordable Avenue - Starter

I found myself in the mood to build again yesterday. I needed a house for some Academie Le Tour students (Roxie and Edwin Sharpe and Roxie's boyfriend Jonah Powers) that had graduated in my Uberhood. By a roll of the dice they ended up in Bluewater Village, but I wasn't very happy with any of their housing options. I decided to build them this house. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, so I decided to share.  I used MATY's magic wand to depreciate the lot, which meant I was able to fully furnish it.

The house is on a 3 x 2 lot, and is 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths.  I think my sims are going to enjoy it as a starter house.

Full House Style Rowhouses - 2 versions

It takes me forever to build things sometimes.  Sadly, I'm not the most reliable person at fulfilling requests.  Last year I was asked to try to build the rowhouses from the show Full House, and I just kept putting it off/forgetting.  Luckily (haha), I got the flu last week, and could do nothing else but sit around and cough for several days and got in the mood to build, so I was able to get a pretty good start on this project.  Most of my building projects get about 95% done when I lose interest.  The key for me is to work on it until I just start to get bored, and hopefully choose that time to wrap up the project before I abandon it.  This time I was able to finish before I gave up.  :)
