GGG--Contemporary Farmhouse

Postby lindawing » February 23rd, 2018, 10:05 pm

This build is based on:

Plan #927-981
Signature plan by Frank Betz Associates Inc.
https://www.houseplans.com/plan/2760-sq ... y-sp123028

Plan Description (as written on the website):

A welcoming front porch, bright white clapboard siding, and a standing seam metal roof make this plan a perfect example of the Contemporary Farmhouse style. The open lower (main) level--with a huge kitchen island as an anchor--is oriented to take full advantage of the out-of-doors. This level also includes a fully-appointed master suite, as well as a guest suite that could also be used as an office or study. The service areas are large and will accommodate any size family with organized storage and laundry space. The upper level provides for two more bedroom suites--each with its own bath--plus a large bonus room that has so many possibilities.

I did end up with four bedrooms, an office (instead of the guest room), and five bathrooms. The upper room configuration, especially, is quite a bit different than the floorplan. I decided, since this is a farmhouse, that part of the lot will have crops (as does the public lot behind the house). I gave it the Cat Hangout trait (because all farms need cats), it's Convivial, and has Great Soil.

I finally gave up on making the roof like the one in the original plan. I like the more contemporary/modern look of what I cam up with, anyway. I'm going to try to get the house finished over the weekend, and have the lot ready for download and a video posted on YouTube, by Monday.

04/10/18--It's Done!!!

Contemporary Farmhouse
Lot Size: 40x30
Lot Value: §254,516
Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 5
Traits: Cat Hangout; Convivial; Great Soil

This would probably be considered a mansion, if it were completely contemporary, but it has been built for a large family of cat-lovers, and each room has been styled in a more contemporary version of an old farmhouse manner. There is lots of wood, wallpaper, and tile, and the kitchen even has a farmhouse sink (https://www.google.com/search?q=farmhou ... 19&bih=737). I've used different colors and individual styles for each of the bedrooms and bathrooms, but have tried to stay true to the main theme. There is also a full "kitchen garden" to one side of the house. I'm not sure how much of that stays when you download the lot, but you can always have your own Sims (I haven't done a family for the lot, at this point), replant the garden. In my game, the architect (R. Kee Tect) has done everything he knew to do (and then some) to make the home appealing to someone wanting, perhaps, to move from the city to a rural setting, to raise their kids, and yet have "all the comforts of home."

If you download this .zip file, just unzip the contents to your Tray, and the lot will then be in your Library. There is no CC in this lot, though something from nearly every EP, SP, and GP has been used in some way, in the build.

If you'd prefer, you can just go to the Gallery and find the Contemporary Farmhouse by searching for my EA User ID: lindawing. You can also use that to go to the online Gallery to download while you're not in the game.

I've done a short YouTube video showcasing this build...

As I was getting ready to close down the game just a bit ago, three stray cats came visiting (as they've been invited to, by the special trait). R. Kee Tect has moved in temporarily, and has begun planting the garden. He hired a professional gardener, as usual, but he decided to water the part he had already planted, leaving puddles behind when he went inside. Judi and I were talking about the house structure, and about how I had divided out the garden , and suddenly two of the strays went to the puddle, and began drinking out of it! It was so cute and realistic! :uhhuh: :grin:

I've now added the final screenshots and links for downloading (plus a .zip file if you'd prefer to download from here), to the first post in this topic (viewtopic.php?f=394&t=3486&p=28014#p28014). You might want to at least scan down through the beginning of the post (that contains the floorplans), then note the updates I made, before you see the final changes & results. It was a lot of work, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a lot more fun building, now, with the more abundant choices we have since the game began in September 2014!
