Well, I didn't get this done on time for the Sci-Fi challenge due to family illness, but I spent a lot of time preparing this unique home and the unusual walls and ground covers that come with it, so I wanted to upload it anyway.

The home "hovers" above a medium 4x3 lot that features a space-like cut-out that the driveways are "suspended" over.
The price is 80,019 simoleans.
There are 2 large bathrooms.
There are 4 large bedrooms on the second floor.
There is a kitchen, living room, study/entertaining area on the first floor.
There is even a special platform on the roof for the sims to study the skies or just load it up to party with outdoor effects!
I hope you all get a kick out of this one!
I will start off by listing the items included that I created:

Walls: Boy Star Wallpaper
Industrial Aluminum Wall Panels
Chrome Diamond Wall Panels
Transcendent Gold Wallpaper
Modern Glass Wall Tiles
"Alienated" Wallpaper

Floors: "Diamonds" carpet in cornflower blue

Groundcovers: Lakeshore Stones
"Space Cadet"
Gold Stars

The items included not created by me are as follows:

Stairs are by Targa "Ascension Squared" found here- "Ascension Squared" stairs

Windows and custom doors that are not Maxis are by Numenor found here: Numenor's Wall/window glass set V3

Also, you will notice in the screenshots of the "Universe" terrain beneath the house, there is an awesome lamp set of the planets that is not included in the download by Tazmanoregon found here: 10 Solar System Lights -make sure you check this out if you want to add them to your lot! They look awesome lit up over the star terrain!

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: 80,019

I can't remember what all needed Pets in this upload... if you or anyone is interested, though, I am organizing my walls and floors and I am in the process of getting some new sets uploaded, so if anyone who did upload this is interested, I may make a set for the walls and floors for this house with a few color variations. Too bad you don't have Pets, though, this lot is fun to use.
