I agree with jje1000 about that barn, better with the house. I like the interior of the bar, but I'm not sure about that table with the chairs. The table doesn't seem to fit there perhaps. I don't know ... perhaps it's kind of a "That farmer gave us this table, and I it kind of fits this style of ours, most importantly, it's free". It doesn't really look like just run down style if you know what I mean. More like "a little bit of this and a little bit of that".

Yeh , this is how it felt to me . It lacked a consistent design , and just seemed random.

Does this look better? I'm just going for modern now. The instruments will be placed after I decide on whether to keep this layout or rebuild it another way.





a house

Is the color okay? When I built this house I was thinking about spearmint gum.

I like this layout a lot, it looks a whole lot better and it all really fits.

Yeah-the layout is much better and consistent then before!

I love the layout, also, is it just me or are the balconies on the house missing pillars?

Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.

I was just trying to make sure the color was okay in that first pic. Here's a picture with plants and posts.

IMO there's a little too much room behind the bar. Have you tried a bar parallel to the stage?

Anyways, everything else looks great! Also, are there going to be any other modern/mid-century buildings in the map? Maybe the elementary school, radio station or starter homes?

If you don't mind the insanity, there is a way to give exterior stairs walls, so you don't have to hide them with flowers.



Anyway, I'm loving the lot as a whole *takes notes*

For the bar, it's going to be hard trying to find out where the stage should be, so it doesn't take up too much space, but has enough room for the instruments and such. If you want, you could put the stage where the giant windows are, and that would make for an interesting back drop for the stage, even though it'd take away from the design itself. You would have to do more interior design, and shift focal points away from that open area, but you wont have to worry about cramming. The space you have it very hard to utilize, but doable. Also, the decor of the lot it quite nice - a cool fusion of rustic charm and an aged retro, yet modern feel. ^_^

The only thing about the bar is those tables. They just seem like outdoor tables to me. Not to mention, setting a martini glass on one is sure to leave you with a wet lap. =)

Your houses still blow me away, every freaking time.

I'm with Redhead on those tables, it reminds me too much of some cheap wobbly tables I would never buy LOL.

You want to mix'n match do you? What about a matching 70's plastic table and some fluffy floffy chairs? ... but you probably don't like such chairs

... and the framing you have for those windows, not the roofs they are kind of cute, but the wallpaper's? ...hm. Those little roofs just need a softer color me thinks, they look to sharp at the moment. The long flattish roof over the balconies looks ok when you have an attic with windows, on their own not so much.

The framing actually works for the corner windows because the framing is wider then the window. On the other wall the window is wider. The color could probably blend more in for it to work.

The bar is good there me thinks, kind of a modern twist ... but the lines are good.

I haven't tried this yet, but once the farmhouse is done I'll give it a shot. I'm never really sure about what I'll build next, but there might be a few modern, not necessarily mid center, houses built over in the unfinished corner of the world.

I'll replace those table with the glass ones. They'll probably look okay.

Which of these looks better - the beige one is very unfinished - I 'm only going to use one of these.

the unspearminted spearmint house



or the basic beige -very very unfinished

I think the un-spearminted spearmint house looks like it has more character and has my vote!

Such a cute barn. ♥

I vote for the un-spearminted spearmint house re-spearminted! (I loved the first color scheme.) You could have a family there whose names are all mint-related.

Agreed about the barn--so cute!

I absolutely love this world and cannot wait until it is finished! It's the first custom world I've gotten super excited about, and I love coming back to this thread and seeing new updates

I have a suggestion/request that I thought might go well with the world. Usually, in my towns, I like to add a building where I can put all my old people so they don't clog up available housing for families, and I feel like a sort of "old folks home" or whatever would be lovely in Reyes because it seems like the exact sort of sunny place retirees would love to live. Just throwing it out there incase you're interested!

As usual, the dissenting vote: BEIGE! lol! But, maybe a light rose trim instead of the white...or maybe the un-minted spearmint. The white is too white.

What a funny concept! I had never thought about doing that before. But it's a pretty good one!

I'm sure a Reyes Retirement Center would be so adorable.

It should have a golf course and be in an isolated location on one of the peninsulas to give it a nice secluded feeling. It would also be a good utilization of the apartment options in LN.

The beauty of it all is that a golf course is now possible due to the SHT expansion which gives us golf ranges

That's actually a good little idea. I'll put it right across from the vineyard that I've put off building for a week or two. Would something kinda like this work? My version of that house would probably not look much like the picture, but would still retain the assisted living/nursing home concept.

If that shape isn't used I'll probably build something similar to one of these.

Though I'm going for the bland color on that house ,I will l try to use the spearmint color on something else .

I just don't feel a golf course would suite the terrain style of Reyes too well. Everything's rather uneven. If I was building a placed based around Monterey CA , with it's somewhat level terrain, I would have already added the idea to my list of things to build . There's also a matter of space. Reyes is really beginning to run out of unfinished terrain that isn't involved with some other plan.

Reyes currently has about 46 or 47 lots of all sizes. Almost all of the residential lots are on normal lots, 50-50,40-40,30-20,..., while most of the community lots are on off size lots.


The next few days I'm going to be quiet on these forums and try to get that section with the barns done.
