The final house in jones' Renovate Pleasantview Contest was the bin house 'Just Right'. I had correctly guessed the last house and this one, so I was well prepared for this round. My final family was the young couple with a toddler.

Sarah and Tom Wilson, and little Daniel have out-grown their old home. Now that Daniel is a toddler they just need more space than their one bedroom apartment. Sarah loves country decor. They would love to have a nice yard because the entire family enjoys spending time outside.

I spent a long time making and back-playing this family, and had a dickens of a time getting them to fall in love, then actually have their kid. I wanted to have lots of family photos for all the walls. My spin on it went a little different: Tom is into sports, he's at the top of his track and both him and little Danny's OTH is sports. Sarah is into country deco which got twisted into Nature being her OTH and is also an Ecological Guru now. Sarah's take on 'country' is contemporary country. She doesn't care for the old grannie look because she isn't one yet. She likes things simple and bright and even sometimes a bit mismatched. While Tom is seriously into sports, he doesn't really care much about decorating. Little Daniel is the one with the most noticeable taste here. His take on 'country' is 'King and Country' so his room is a kingdom where he fights dragons. He latched on to dragons early - before he could talk, so his word for 'dragon' and 'giraffe' is 'dira'. He hasn't really figured out they aren't the same animal, so his giraffes say 'rar'. Mom and Dad thought it was adorable, so they haven't discouraged it. The best parts of this house have to be all the fantastic toddler details. They love that he loves orange, Dad's favorite color. Mom likes teal, so their wedding colors were orange and teal. You can see their version here.

I didn't change much between my original version and the one I'm presenting here, except that it's been stripped of all the personal photos and I've tried to reduce the sheer amount of CC. It's still a lot, but it is less I promise! The judges mostly had comments about small hallways, but it's a tiny house and can't be occupied by that many sims anyways. I've rarely had routing issues, so I don't put much stock in complaints like that!

A useful playpen keeps the toddler(s) at bay and out from underfoot in the kitchen.


A handy little shelf in the kitchen is useful for keeping track of the family's schedule to to grab a quite bit to eat in the mornings.


This perfect little room allows an independent toddler to get in and out of his crib, play with his castle, ride his trusty stead, and Mom or Dad can still get in to change his clothes. You can see more of the 'dira' collection of dragons and giraffes. Your little youngster (and mom and dad) can get into bed even with the nightstand so close. The lamp is just his size! Books are kept up high to be out of danger of being ripped, chewed, or colored on.


The backyard is a magical place to play, with dragons and forts and sandcastles.


Enjoy!
