Budget Suburban

I saw this lovely house on my way home the other day, very simple but just my thing. Here’s my 20×20 sim version of it. (With—a first for me in a long time—no CFE!)

Riverblossom Manor

I had a lot of fun building and playing with Riverblossom Manor, my first big Skills Legacy home. It’s a laid back country manor, with traditional furnishings and lots of places to sit about and relax. I designed this house for my second generation heir Elisabeth, so I’ve focused on the painting and logic skills, but there’s also a greenhouse ready for your gardener sims.

Maple Heights

Welcome to Maple Heights, a luxurious modern home. I built this while playing the final generation of my EP Legacy, but it’s not a typical legacy mansion designed to accommodate a large family. Although there’s an emergency nursery and changing room, Maple Heights is really meant for one or two singles or couples. Such sims will find it to be a spacious, comfortable, and surprisingly low maintenance home.

In addition to the nursery, there are two double bedrooms. The smaller one connects to a walk in closet, en suite WC and shower, and bot building lab; the larger, to a gym, master bathroom, office, and sizable balcony. The house’s other facilities include a home cinema, pool, further office, four car garage, and grand reception room.

University of Monte Vista Housing

I built this villa as student accommodation for Monte Vista. It has five bedrooms, and can house 8-9 sims.

I don’t think the lot will look right in the university world, so if you want to use it as a dorm, you’ll need Nraas Traveller to send your sims on vacation to Monte Vista or a similar world and Nraas Careers to allow them to study there. If you don’t like mods, you could easily rezone it as an apartment; it would be perfect for young adult sharers.

Goetsch-Winckler House

I built this home for a teacher and her two daughters I’m playing, basing the architecture and layout as closely as I could on Frank Lloyd-Wright’s Goetsch-Winckler House. It has a double bedroom, a (rather cramped) twin bedroom, a bathroom, patio, and open plan great room. The decor’s all a bit ’70s…I don’t know why; it just kind of happened. Everything is fully upgraded and the lot is, like everything I upload, free from third-party CC and CAP.

Casa de la Cumbra

This luxury Spanish Revival home features six double bedrooms, a large nursery, 5.5 bathrooms, a pool, various areas for entertainment and relaxation, and parking for six cars. I built it for 604 Vista Blvd. in Starlight Shores, which is a corner lot, but if you want to place it somewhere else all you’ll have to do is erase a little bit of terrain painting at the side. Like all of my uploads, it’s free from CAP and CC but uses a fair bit of store content, so just ask if you see something in the pictures you don’t recognize.

Legacy Ranch

I built this six bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house for the Pets generation of my EP Legacy at 1006 Pomona Promenade in Appaloosa Plains. If you’re placing it elsewhere, you’ll probably want to redo a little bit of the terrain painting, and maybe place some more eucalyptus trees. The exteriors were inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright‘s iconic Bernard Schwartz house; the interiors, by my legacy sims’ interests and adventures.

The house has been tested for seven sim weeks with up to nine sims, a unicorn, four cats, and four dogs. It is pet-friendly, and there is lots of space for a horse to run about, although I didn’t bother with any special racing or jumping equipment as the training grounds are very nearby.
