Round 37: February 2045 (Summer)

Connor and Lila’s place is too small for any sort of large family gathering - which Connor sees as a huge plus - so Lila’s parents Kirstin and David hold a little party for Jonathan's first birthday at their house.

Lot tour: New house for my roomies

I still haven't had a chance to sit down and play the Romilly family! It's a Christmas update, so I would very much like to get it out before Christmas in real life. But before I can play them, Caitlin needed a place to live, so I decorated this place for her and Brendan. Annabel and Caitlin will join them once they graduate in January birthdays. 


So this is the house! It's one of Honeywell's Bespoke houses, which make use of the Bespoke build set, the very first time I've used any of it in my hood. 

I wanted this to be a rental house but to cut a long story short, I had a glitch with the kitchen when I did that, which I could not fix, despite trying everything I could think of. The glitch does not exist when the house is just a regular residential lot, so that's what this is.

Lot tour: The Bentons' new place

Yet another lot tour for you today! I've been in a real decorating mood lately. I did Chris and Veronica's house pretty quickly, I picked away a little at my long-neglected primary school, I'm working on a share house for Brendan, Caitlin, Georgina and Annabel and I now have this house ready for the Bentons!


The house is Park Hill, which I grabbed from MTS. I actually downloaded a couple of new houses, intending them for this family but when I put them in game, they didn't feel right. They were large and had enough rooms but they didn't feel like an upgrade on their old place. This one has been sitting in my hood for who knows how long but I think it really suits the Bentons.

I will probably change that roof colour. It looked good with the original white windows but now that I have the darker wood Torrox windows, it doesn't look quite right any more.

Lot tour: Chris and Veronica's house

I got the decorating bug over the last few days and finished off this place for Chris and Veronica in one evening, which is much, much faster than I tend to decorate these days, even for a relatively small house!



Anyway, this little place was built as a gift for me by Starr! If you saw my WIP pic on Tumblr, you'll notice I've changed the roof colour!

Outside, I added a fence all around the lot (but there's really nothing in the garden except Clancy's dog bowl at the moment, so no pics), changed the walls, floors, windows and doors. Inside, I think I left the layout has mostly as Starr built it, other than moving the second bathroom to the back of the house and adding some half walls to block off the kitchen.

Let's go inside!

The Romilly-Royce-Nihill wedding

Round 37: November 2045 (Spring)


I didn’t really care to follow the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride before the wedding but Ione was quite insistent. So the night before, I bunked down in Aurora’s old bedroom.
