I forgot to include some information in my upload post! In case you were wondering about the random room in the basement (which, by the way, is accessed by laundry room stairs that you can’t quite see in the overhead pictures): I had intended that room as a butler’s quarters. Or if you have a Sim in the household who’s going to be the maid (or painting goblin??) you could add a door and lock it so the “upstairs” Sims don’t wander down there.
Also, I thought that this house would look really nice with some stables in back. It would have to go on a larger lot though, so I shared this version (which I thought would be useful to more people) and am planning to build some stables for my own use. Just an idea if anyone else wants to do the same!
I doesn’t matter which tutorial you use; it’s not difficult and everyone does it the same way. I don’t have a tutorial on-hand but I can just quickly explain:
Build the foundation and house, then open the cheat box and enter constrainfloorelevation false. Use the wall tool and draw out your garage, from the foundation of the house. Use the level terrain tool and level from the foundation of the house over the walls you just placed, so those walls become foundation-height. Place the garage walls again; these will line up with the walls of the house. Delete four squares of the garage wall from the foundation level for the garage door, then use the wall tool to replace them at full height. This will distort the walls above it, so level from the top of the first-storey walls of the house across the distorted section. Enter constrainfloorelevation true when you’re done.
I built this house a very long time ago, while I was on my five-month hiatus. It has since been sitting in my building world because I just wasn’t happy with the exterior (this is what it used to look like). I did some renovations to it today and finally like it enough to share. For my own use, I’m going to drop this on a larger lot and add a stables in back; I’m uploading this smaller version because I thought a smaller lot would be more useful to more people. Also, the bedroom count includes the room in the basement—accessed by stairs in the laundry room—which I had intended as a butler’s quarters.

Rags to Riches update!! Still having no job, Tyler and his adopted daughter Lilly have done really well, mostly from gardening. Lilly’s LTA is the bottomless nectar cellar (or whatever it is) so they’re branching out into endless life fruit and pomegranate trees!! Tyler’s built himself a new bedroom on the ground floor (he’s about to turn elder so he doesn’t want to be climbing up all those stairs) and the garden is starting to look loved.
As usual (not that many people tell me) let me know what you think!!
This is beautiful. I don’t know whether you had a plan in mind for the house, or if you just expanded it organically, but it’s pretty great (also, please fuck right off out of here with your perfect roofing :P). The side porch and sunroom are my favorite part!
I don’t think so. I don’t know anything about French architecture though.
As requested, I’m sharing Marcy’s home in Angel City—slightly edited and more furnished, but still a starter home.

Not sure what you mean by “club house.” Also, “Victorian” is a very broad category. Feel free to send me reference pictures or more specific details for your suggestion.
Stawberry: … what is this? Seance? … Seance!
Sure! I have to say, I really don’t understand the appeal of this shitty little house, but I’m happy to share. I’ll want to edit it a little though; Marcy is poor and there’s pretty much just a bed, shower and fridge in there right now.
Thank yoooou! This was an awesome message to see this afternoon :D
Yep, the lighting mod I currently use is Cloud 9 by brntwaffles, with Gelina’s tweaks. It’s very beautiful in game and my favorite of the many, many different lighting mods I’ve tried.
Also, I don’t know which picture of mine in particular you’re looking at, but if it’s the recent one of Marcy’s house in Angel City, or any of my personal gameplay pictures, then I edited it rather a lot as well (adjusting colors, hand painting shadows, etc). I posted a before-and-after for comparison. But my pictures for upload are only minimally edited, to fix the weird darkness of the in-game camera, so any prettiness is entirely credited to brntwaffles and Gelina.
Thank you! I haven’t gotten a chance to try it out yet, between busy life and computer issues. Hopefully soon. BTW, your houses are sheer perfection. <3 I drool over every single one. Dunno if I’ve told you that already!
YOUR community lots are perfection (I know I’ve told you that already!), though I don’t drool over them—I mostly just weep enviously :P
Moved the Rook fam into this house by fakehousesrealawesome
Added a greenhouse and changed the siding a bit
I’m not sure how much inspiration I can draw from cotton candy…but those colors might suit something like a Victorian painted lady. I’ll see if I can find some reference pictures that look interesting.
omgtotallysims reblogged your photo and added:
YOUR THINGS LOOK SO NICE YOU MAKE ME SICK (I love…
Ahahaha! I just have to say that it’s really funny how much love a rundown, dirty little shack is getting. You guys, this place is objectively a dump. :P

That looks so real! Are you using Gelina’d lighting tweaks?
Yep, brntwaffles’ Cloud 9 and Gelina’s tweaks. I edit my pictures more when they’re not for upload though—adjusting colors, hand painting some shadows and such for more realism and depth. Here’s a before and after of the picture of Marcy’s home:
