Lakeside Retreat

I’m rebuilding everything in Granite Falls. This is my first lot, I’ve kept the name Lakeside Retreat, as a cosy but spacious family cabin. It’s five bedrooms (one master, two double, two twin), a kitchen/diner, a living room and plenty of outdoor space including a natural pool.

It’s a bit pricey to rent (around 1,700 simoleons a day), but it’s a great lot for a large family to take a break to, even if they can only afford a few days. I’ve play tested it and everything works correctly.

I’ve got more pictures in the full album, but here’s a taste of the place. Hope you enjoy!

The backyard, complete with fire pit, natural swimming pool and BBQ.

The games room, coming off from the hallway on the main (middle) floor.

An overview of the kitchen/dining room, which leads to the hallway as well as the outdoor deck.

The lovely master bedroom, with great views in all directions.

Bottom floor, four bedrooms, two bathrooms.

Middle floor, hallway, one toilet, kitchen/diner, games/living room and the outdoor deck.

Newcrest Arts Center

I wanted to build an arts center that was out of the city. A family arts center, with activities for sims of all ages (plus I want to get rid of the one in San Myshuno so really needed an alternative).

I wanted to build Newcrest with very modern buildings, this was my first one and I’m pretty pleased with the result. I’ve not play-tested yet, but I barely used the move objects cheat (mostly just for landscaping) so it should be completely playable.

Better images to follow once I’ve play tested it a bit.

The Treehouse

I wanted a hangout area for my kids club that I have. Was thinking of doing an electronics-cafe style, then I thought a treehouse would be a cool idea.

It’s in the middle of Willow Creek, the Rindle Rose lot (20×15). I like it being used on a small lot, but you could easily move it to a bigger one and expand it a bit.

I’ve not play-tested it yet (will do, will include better images when I do), will update this when I do. I used the moveobjects cheat a fair amount for this build.

It’s no custom content, but has stuff from lots of packs.
