Hattie’s House:  More than a house; it’s an EXPERIENCE!


WIP: New pics of Hattie’s House!

I have several pics of the interior of Hattie’s House.  I finished the kitchen, living room, children’s room, and the nursery.

All that’s left is the downstairs bathroom, and the upstairs master suite.  Hopefully I’ll have Hattie’s up on the Exchange in time for the New Year!  🙂

Happy Simming, Simmers!

WIP: Hattie’s House


Hattie’s House


Horse barn

I once uploaded this house as a shell on the Simmers Society.  There was a thread where you could share your unfinished projects and see how other simmers completed them.

Originally, however, I started this build–then called Hattie’s Hovel–because it is based on a place that I once dreamed about many, many years ago.  I think it was when I was young enough to have been really immersed in the Anne of Green Gables series of books.  I wanted the lot to be mysterious, yet enchanting, and I think it still has some element of that feeling, but it certainly has evolved into so much more.

I still haven’t completed the interior, but I’m getting there.  I may do some more tweaking to the landscaping, but I love how it’s turning out.

It’s a great lot for horse lovers, as well as gardeners.  In fact, there is a mushroom cellar!  Mushrooms are actually grown deep under the earth where it is dark and damp, so I decided to add this touch of reality.

For now, here is a sneak peak of Hattie’s House (Hattie was my maternal grandmother’s name, so I’m hoping the build has some of her sourthern blend of guts and grace!):

Historustica Apartments

Little by little, I have been working toward making “Barnacle Bay” into “Mediterranean Bay.”  I don’t have much so far–mainly because I haven’t been simming much lately–but what I do have is mostly in the form of downloads from fellow simmer, Susanna.  She has great Italian style builds, and I placed several of her lots in this world.

I, too, like to build old world style lots, and the following build is just that.  I made it especially for Mediterranean Bay.  My inspiration was a picture of an old Italian house (to which I no longer have access).  In order to make the most use of all the space, I decided to make the build into 3 distinct apartments.

There are 2 distinct buildings, but they are connected by a breezeway.  The yellow stone-brick building (on the right) has one 2-floored apartment (let’s call it Apartment A), and the white-green stucco/stone building (on the left) has two more apartments, one of which is 2-floors (let’s call it Apartment B) and the other which is 3 floors (let’s call it Apartment C).

I didn’t use buydebug to place hidden room markers and all three apartments are fully furnished. This way, simmers can choose which apartment best suits their needs/style and place hidden room markers for themselves in the apartments they opt not to play. Or, they can play all three apartments as one household. It’s up to you. 🙂

Stonecrest Cottage…COMING SOON!

This is a little home I made for Scotch Hollow.   It sits on a small lot, but could easily be placed on a larger lot if you want more yard space.  I think it’s kind of unique–kind of quirky looking–but I like it.  It would be perfect for a single sim.  Has a nice swimming hole in front and a convenient wrap-around porch. 

I will upload it in the next day or two.  In the meantime, here’s a pic and a link to a photo album with more pics.  🙂
