Inspired by the application foundation provided in a recent contest , I decided to make a small series of homes all under 25k with the same guidelines as the contest.
The family that laughs together stays together. Or in the Lambertís case that might be fall over each other since they have 6 children... yes six. 2 teenage girls, 2 child age boys and 2 toddlers. One teenage girl is goth while the other is girly. The boys donít care so long as they have room to run around.
Requirements Build them a four bedroom house (only four bedrooms no more). Must have at least two bathrooms.
Wants The parents want a play ground for the kids. The boys want a tree house. (this can be up in a tree, on stumps, or more like a fort)
Random Object The Wanderfall kids picture http://sims2-objectdefaults.dreamwidth.org/52586.html
This one was a bit of a challenge to get under 25k for 8 people. Good gravy. The home has a VERY open floorplan in the common areas, because they need the elbow room to move around and walls are too expensive for them to have, haha! The teen girls room is decorated to be half girly and half goth, and the child boys received a sporty theme in theirs while the toddlers are content with aliens. The "playground" consists of a SuperTower (handy to build body points!), two spring riders (one for each toddler) and a mock fort that is my sad, sad attempt at a "rangers station" for the boys. The "rangers station" has a toybox inside, a dartboard outside and a telescope to keep watch of incidents! (The telescope is usable where it is.)
This home has:
All the requirements under the spoiler tag - 4 bedrooms/2 full bathrooms, playground objects, mock fort, and the kids picture.
Fire alarm, burglar alarm and phone.
Minimal landscaping to keep the cost inside rather than outside!
