Compact, Modern Luxury

Like the last lot I uploaded, I bulldozed an ugly Maxis house in Bridgeport and built this in its place. I personally think it turned out even better than the last house I uploaded; I mentioned in the description of my last upload that it had nothing on some of the other buildings I built, and this is one of those houses. Though this is nowhere near a mansion (or even the average family home), it took me a good few hours to complete. This house is somewhat inspired by something I saw on Google Images though it isn't intended to be an exact recreation. I took more inspiration from what I often see being built in my city's inner districts, close to downtown.

What I usually see being built in my city's inner districts are post-modern houses that are narrow and long like this one. I've taken a liking to the dark colour scheme that I often see in new houses and I much prefer it to the pristine white colour scheme that's commonly associated with the post-modern architecture style. This lot isn't completely post-modern, but with some shoehorning I think it could fit in the category.

Like the summary says, it's good for a family of four. The kitchen has enough chairs, the living room is spacious enough and there are two children's rooms with a master bedroom. I personally like what I did with the kitchen. Working within the constraints of the-then shell brought something that is unique compared to what I usually do. The shape, the design, everything about this kitchen is a departure from what I normally do, and I think I should do it more often. I also like building basements under the foundation using the basement tool. It's a bit of a pain to do, but the results are pretty nice, I think.

Here's some of the details:
  • Expensive home theatre setup, with bookshelves and mirrors intended to be decorative
  • A kitchen with barstools at the islands; no dining room, but there is a patio entrance in the kitchen, where you could cook and eat outside
  • A basement under the foundation, using the basement tool
  • Three bedrooms; one master, two children's
  • Three full bathrooms
  • Side yard with a fire pit, barbecue, table and chairs as well as lounge chairs
  • Two cars to inflate the price
  • A second patio that could overlook a beautiful vista, like it does in Bridgeport
  • Alarms - fire and burglar
  • Multiple interior wall coverings to avoid repetitiveness
