I added a second story with multiple rooms and tamed the out-of-control roof. It is now a two bedroom, with three full baths and a loft. An additional 4x4 spare room can be used as needed. The downstairs kitchen and dining area is large. I also added a driveway and backyard deck. Built from scratch on a new Lot, of course, this is a pretty good house now, imo. No Custom Content.

My first thought upon loading up that house and seeing the roofing situation was "What were they thinking?!?"

New year, same old problems and unfinished creations...

My Baroque chateau and Victorian asylum are both coming along leaps and bounds.

I finished this one the other day... I think it is a Toll Brothers design, but I can't find a link to it anywhere *shrug*

It's floor plan was stored in my hoard of interesting ideas folder. It'll be uploaded soon (I hope!)

Looking nice, Ferg. Definitely digging the asylum.

During the summer I was playing around with making something in the 1980s and 1990s Postmodern style--kinda that Michael Graves vibe. Postmodern is a really wide genre, of sorts, but I really do like some of its revival elements. And to slowly work on my never-ending project of making community lots of rabbit hole buildings, I came up with a this:

It's a bit on the tame side (considering how batshit crazy some postmodern designs can go) with some art deco revival touches.

One of my favorite movies of all time is Soapdish, a silly comedy with Sally Field about soap operas. (Some plot elements have not completely aged perfectly from 1991.) I based the interior on the set from that movie, so lots of art deco and Memphis Group colors. A television studio with essentially a consistent set just seemed easier than a general movie lot. That's about it. Still have a few offices and all the individual dressing rooms to do, and whatever the heck I'm going to do with the very top floor. I don't know if I'll upload it because it is impractically large and detailed so far. Playing around with colored invisible lights to make the sunrise/sunset for the back drop was fun. The doors are colored coated based on what they lead into. Green->studio, Black->hallway, Gray->service, Yellow->office, Red->dressing room, Purple->wardrobe, Brown->props, Orange->health/wellness, Dark Blue->recreation, White->outside/exit, and Light Blue/Pink->restrooms. So all the doors essentially have different colors on each side. Why? Because CAST. :D

I started these 2 suburban ranches yesterday - finished them today. They are boring... no CC, 2 click foundation, L-shaped houses. *sigh*



The white modern in back is done and about to be uploaded.
...and up on the ridge to the right are 2 more suburban ranches that are finished, but need photos/etc...

I just felt the need to build last week .

If you make the roofs less steep, like the minimum 15 degrees, they might look a little less boring.

Here's something many people don't know. In the southern United States, building codes allow for fairly shallow pitched roofs, simply because there is infrequent snowfall. In the northern part of the country, building codes require steeper roofs because of the heavier snow and rainfall.
You can always tell when a homebuilding company from the northern US builds in the south because their houses will have the typical steep pitched roofs, even though they don't need to be. I know, I live in one.

I don't know how many times I've seen Sim lot makers make a desert or tropical-styled house with a steeply pitched roof, which doesn't make sense.
Also, I think the overall tendency of many lot makers is to use a too-steeply pitched roof. It's as if they don't know the roof angle tool exists.

I think the roofs are at either 27 or 33 on those two... I needed to find a pitch that would blend two of the roof sections together alright (there's a 1T jog between them) I'm not quite done with them yet... maybe I'll futz a bit more with the roofs?

This is the Floor plan for the white one:

It's done/photoed/ready... I might get it uploaded tomorrow?
