I mentioned that Tessa and Elvin would be moving into a new house since their tiny beach home wasn't enough any more since they now had Arwen. So I found an awesome floor plan at www.houseplans.com and decided to build them a new beach house :). I posted this at N99 but decided to post it here for those who may not be members.
I'm actually starting to enjoy building lots more. Since Elvin is so opposed to them taking care of Arwen, I can see him wanting her and Vanya to have separate rooms. So I built a three bedroom two bath house for them.
The house is centered on the second floor, with the first floor containing an entryway with spiral stairs leading up to the main floor.
The first floor contains a small area where they can wash off sand to avoid tracking it all in the house. It only contains a small shower and sink as well as a few towels.
There is also a utility area that contains a washer and dryer, which Tessa isn't too fond of using lol. I see Elvin as more of a Mr. Mom type that does chores like this :)
At the top of the stairs is the living room, kitchen, and dining area all in one big open space. The entire house has hardwood floors, with the exception of the bathrooms.
Behind the living room area is a study area.
Vanya's room. I'm sure she'll be excited to have her own space :)
Arwen's room. How cute is that wall sticker of the lamb? :)
Bathroom that will be shared by Vanya and Arwen. It sits between their bedrooms.
And I added a balcony that overlooks the water. Perfect place for a barbeque.
And that's it! I'm pretty happy about the way this turned out. I think I get a little better each time I try my hand at building something. I'm a long way from being upload worthy though lol
I decided to start this blog in addition to my LaQuest Beach blog so that I don't clog up the hood blog with all my randomness :). This is still a sim related blog, but more of the behind the scenes. I may link posts from this blog to the main blog if I feel they are important and I'll put them in the comments section of one of the posts. I'm going through and deleting all posts from the LaQuest Beach blog that aren't updates to make it easier for new folks to follow the craziness that are my stories :). So welcome to my chaos!
