I've been working on remodelling the Goth house to better accommodate a growing, multi-generational family. Working on the theory that making it a bit too big while they're rich is better than risking running out of space later, when financial crises may have hit, this was produced:
The roofline is very different form the original look, but I think it still looks Gothish enough while being modern. Also, except for that turret, it is useful...
The new stargazing deck, soon to get the expensive telescope hauled up to it due to Alexander's desire to get the extraterrestrial reparations scholarship. The turret roof looks like it blocks the stairs, but that's just the snow -- the roof looks much better without snow! Notice that the other roofs are high enough for at least storage space, and a small room in the case of the biggest part.
What will be Cassandra's private patio.The turret serves as access to it, and exists because I think the Goth house should have a tower!
The re-done attic is meant to be useful! The red room will be a study/place for Bella's odd things (the coffin is her fault!), the blue one is Cassandra and Don's room (note separate beds), and the room in between will be a nursery for the little darlings Cassandra insists on having (the first bun's in the oven already, and Don is going to be very surprised...). I guess there should be a bathroom up there, but where to put it? Alexander is already lobbying for access to the largest roof segment as his new room...
(And yes, I built around Don at the easel.)
Have Mansions & Gardens without Apartment Life and can't find the University espresso bar? You're not the only one! I claim whatever dubious bragging rights there are for proving this is yet another M&G-without-AL bug.
This is the very first house that I have actually built myself. Usually I build myself on community lots, but for residential I just convert Maxis houses.
This is a starter house that I built for BJ Shaikh, the Tricou Goth, when he moved into Veronaville to live alone. Being a Goth, BJ likes it dark, so it looks quite different to all my other starter houses. The interior colours are all dark, and the house is overshadowed by tall trees. All the trees make it hard to get a decent picture of it.
This I about the best view I could get of the front of the house. BJ had only moved in for minutes when his old enemy Charlie Benson came and kicked the dustbin over! I've no idea why Charlie hates BJ so much. Maybe he doesn't like Goths.
I don't know how Charlie found it. BJ has it well hidden amongst the trees. It's the plumbbob in among the trees in the road above the canal.
This is a view of the interior of the house. BJ is entertaining his (half?) brother Ravi Bertino and their mutual friend Kendra McCarthy the Veronaville townie.
I can't build if my life depended on it, plus the roof tool is sometimes confusing. Here's a house that I made a little bit earlier just so I could have a home for one of my families. Still not furnished though, and the outside isn't done.

The Curious Brothers
Well, I thought they needed a new house. I loved the roof of the old one but the floor plan was just so strange... They never used the indoor doors to the room.
I might have to adjust this house a little, since at the moment it has no room for Vidcund so he's sleeping in the laboratory... However I ran out of money and since I don't use cheats, this'll have to wait.
Also I wanted the house to still be somewhat strange but with a nicer floor plan.
A lot of the stuff is from their old house and just recolored... I flattened the lot instead of moving them to a new one and then I just moved everything aside and built the house.
I guess that counts as landscaping? If not I can put it in random pictures but it fits better with the house.
This is their new house. The siding will probably change as I am currently working on maxis siding recolors. It will however be in Aelias Retro Colours so it'll still have fancy colors.
A closer look at the front yard. The house is supposed to be fenced in to save the brothers from Olive Specter but they don't have the money for full fences right now.
By the way, the sim in the second picture is Olive, as she was coming over to mock at Vidcund. You can see the scene in the emotions & expressions thread.
Looks great lovesaritafofa! I like the geometry in it (if that makes any sense) and it's a house I surely would let my sims live in The only thing that would bother me would be that there's no floor surrounding the pool...
