Once Lauren went off to college, Mum and Dad started to look around for a new house. Seeing I’m still living at home for the time being, I moved with them. Most people downsize when their kids leave home but this place is actually bigger.
I guess Lauren wasn’t busy enough this semester, because she's decided to start up The Suffolk Sun, a campus newspaper. She says it’s going to look awesome on her resume once she gets out in the real world and wants to start writing.
When I started my Sullivan rebuild, I was fairly resigned to the fact that I wasn't going to be able to get a lot of my lots back. So I've been pleasantly surprised just how many I have been able to track down again, due to Pinterest or just pure dumb luck.
One of the lots I was able to find again was Apple Plaza, originally made by Babbelsim. I used it in Sullivan 1.0 and made it over but I was never completely happy with the layout. Having the boys' bathroom on one floor and the girls' on the other was more annoying than I thought it would be, the hallways were too big and it was all just not quite right to me. So I decided to have another go at it, this time learning from my mistakes with the first one.
My original makeover is here. I forgot to do an exterior shot this time but it's not too different from my first makeover anyway. Remember I'm still fairly low on CC. I will likely end up adding some things to this lot when I have more but I am mostly happy with it as is.
First floor layout. The original lot has rooms that are completely internal, as in none of the walls touch an outside wall. Those kinds of rooms drive me a bit nuts, so I got rid of them.
I've been decorating a dorm for Declan, Justin and Xavier to live in and remembered my PSA posters, which I don't think I ever uploaded here. Or at least, if I did, they've disappeared from my uploads folder at my hosting space. ;) So here they are (9 more after the jump)!
1. "Let's Get Together and Feel All Right"
2. "Don't Let This Happen"
3. "A flap of wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow".
