The Newbury Makeover

Another remodel!

I’m attempting to completely redo all my saves, I’ve been using the same “base” save for a couple of years now with some minor updates.  I’m VERY bored with it and want some new lots.  

This one is by the lovely @jenba and I actually did very little to it other than change the kitchen a bit and some of the colors.  I also redid the landscaping and removed most of the clutter (ya’ll know my OCD and clutter … twitches). The lot is nearly perfect as is.

Funny story about this one, I saw the Sears Homes floor plan and immediately thought of her.  I sent her a link in chat and she was like “Oh!  I love that type of home.  I’ve done one before…..”

It was the SAME FLOOR PLAN!  I laughed and told her “No wonder it made me think of you.”

The house is called The Newbury and can be found here in it’s original state.

More screens below the cut, there is even a cute basement that I made over into a lair for a secret agent (or a criminal if you want to go that route lol).

Townie Home Makeover

LOOK AT ME GOING CC FREE!!

I’m so proud of myself right now.  I may actually never put back in my build/buy CC because EA has released a ton of stuff.  We’ll see once I get to redoing my sims houses if I can or can’t.

I’ve never been a big fan of clutter and I use the same things over and over!  I may just keep a bare number of personal buy/build recolors.  

I’m going to make myself a mod once the new GP releases (I don’t want to have to fix it) that will give all the furniture the same comfort levels (the beds the same energy) so it increases my options.  

My fireproof and 5% breakage mods are acting weird so probably will see if I can use the same concept as the beds mods to do this instead of what I’m doing now.

The lot is originally by Dangerous Stain Builds but I did some changes.

Sim Science Lab

The lab that I built.  I use a mod that makes the science career more fun.  If you want to fully enjoy the mod, it’s best to use a different lot than the EA one.  I also think the EA one is poorly designed.

The first floor has two computer labs and a large area for the robot and the microscope.  There is also a garden.

The second floor (under the cut) is where the lounge is located with a barista and tv area.  There are two small sleeping rooms and Thania’s private office (I remove the door to keep sims out unless I’m using the room).  The observatory and transporter are on this floor as well.

Mod can be found here.  It is multi-part so be sure to get all of it it and follow the instructions.  You will need to register to download.

Ragdoll Refurb – Redone

I gutted the inside of EA’s lot “Ragdoll Refurb” down to where there was nothing left (not even rooms).  Made the building bigger and started to make it over….

This is totally my style – if I didn’t have to worry about the tastes of others in my house!  HAHA.

I’m really happy with this and will need to have a sim live here.  It’s just the downstairs and still have much to do!  And it’s CC/mods free (I take them out when I’m building…if I remember to do it).

Natalia & Anastasia’s Room

Natalia and Anastasia had their room made over, it’s a good thing they are both into gothic punk otherwise it would have been a problem like when Dani and Natalia used to share a room.

Nikolai also had his room made over to something a little older.

I still have to make over Shane, Shauna, and Brady’s rooms…..

Evi was in the middle of reading to Nik when I aged them up, she seemed pretty annoyed at me for it.  LOL

Las Palmas Gym

Getting my gym ready for Tuesday!  It looks different live because there are water fountains and stuff.

I’ll put the climbing wall over next to the basketball court.  Made the pool much smaller to make room.  I only use this gym in game, I don’t see the need for more than one gym.
