My version of Gamma:



Slideshow pictures are smaller than those in the album, but can be paused by hovering over bottom right and clicking the box when it appears.

Larger pictures in the album can be viewed in sequence by simply clicking the next icon in the top right.

Instead of decorating in the traditional blue of a beach house, I used the colors of the stain glass cupboards in the kitchen - green, yellow, and reddish orange on a creme background.

Ciane - the colors really work well together! I love the exterior and the sheer roominess inside! Also like how you utilized the back bits without letting them take things over! Great house!

Wow, I loved how you made everything seem to flow together in such an odd foundation. You did a great job, I love it. And I love what you did with the foundations at the back.

I must say so far I've loved everything I've seen you build Ciane and you always come up with interesting floor plans. Something I myself have been trying to work on lol

Thanks for the nice comments. I tend to draw out a floor plan on paper first, generally making the parts that stick out most into a porch or patio. Yet, when I actually start putting up the walls, I'll get a different idea about something that works out even better. For instance, originally on this one, I had a small bath between the kitchen and living room and seperate main rooms. The idea to move that bath to what I had planned on being outside porch/patio opened up the area for counter dining and an open floor plan that worked out much better for the Sims.

It is great to see how one foundation becomes such unique residences. I do spend too much time decorating these homes though. I was tempted to do an unfurnished house, but then it wouldn't show it with the possibilities I envision (though your possibilities could make it more interesting for you).

How pretty. ^_^ It's a little too modern for my tastes, but it's still very nice looking. I loved the little corner entryway with the bench seating: what a nice detail.

I like the wood and brick and warm tones throughout.

Well sorry to hear that but that IS how I tend to build usually. Not to mention the shape of the foundation didn't exactly give me any inspiration for anything more traditional lol

I don't mind modern houses at all, they're just not what I usually go for. That doesn't mean that your house is any less gorgeous in my eyes. I think you did a wonderful job with the foundation.

Ughh...
I have to make a new house because the load time for build/buy mode is soooooo long. I was even thinking of uploading the completed house but i dont think users would like to wait over a minute to get into buy/build mode. Im thinking its because of all the plants im using. if i took them out it wouldnt look as cool so i think i should start fresh.

When you build like that it's always wise to limit yourself to the same types of flowers I think. Even if there is many of them then, it does not get that much of a strain to load.

TS3 aliens? Finally! Now give us OFB and proper apartments, damnit! - EA, you are breaking my heart. - I give up.

Hey, if it's gorgeous, I don't care how long it takes to load. Plus, if it's done well enough, I rarely have to enter build or buy mode.

Greenlea - absolutely gorgeous - love the colors, layout and snakeskin on the couch - mmmm!
3mo co0ki3s! - I really liked what you posted so far and am with LifesLover on loading times do NOT matter, when I like the look of a download. There have only been one or two downloads that were so prohibitively slow that I never went beyond the initial inspection tour. Never to use again. Most of the downloads are within what I consider normal time range for my borderline machine, but are well worth the time spent waiting. My own builds sometimes take a small eternity to get all the CC and reCAST parts loaded, that I am very tolerant of loadtimes. So, let's see your final product!

Ok i'll finish it i'll just warn the downloaders (if it gets accepted).

Warning is a good idea: that way they can get rid of what they want to fix the load times.

I dont have as much time as i used to on the computer because of school so it might be a while until i get something done on that house

i also want to take a bit of a brake to start another house to upload when i do have time to go on

Hey, I followed LifesLover's siggie here. I love this foundation! I already have an idea brewing up in my head for it so I think I'll jump in.

Well, it worked out absolutely nothing like what I was picturing as I had a moment of temporary insanity and forgot that diagonal pools are not possible in TS3. Damn you, EA. :D

But, I'm slowly getting something that resembles something less than hideous.

Edit: No one else has posted so I'll just add my pictures here.

I have built a modern one bedroom, 2 bathroom house perfect for a single person or couple with no children.

From the street:


Pool/Patio Area:


It was extremely difficult to get a decent photo of that area.
