The Ashbee

Okay, so this one is slightly different. It is a cross between a Craftsman and a Cottage and is based on a vintage plan that I came across online. I renamed it the Ashbee after an arts and crafts designer as I am adding it to my surburban dreams set.

Mayfair Island ~ A Scottish Village

Okay, so having spent a month up in the Highlands I have been making a set of lots, both residential and commercial for the lovely Mayfair Island by Rflong7.  It is a small world and perfect for what I was looking for as I needed a decent sized harbour.

Bon Voyage!

I am off on my annual migration North to Scotland, so although I will have my laptop and lots of time to build some lovely new houses, I may not be able to access the internet and upload them as the places we are staying in are very remote.  I think I might build a set of highland cottages based on the place where we go every year, or perhaps something more in my imagination.  I will be back with full internet on 18th June, that's 25 days of peace and relaxation for me, happy holidays : )

Contemporary Cabins are Coming to Sims 3!

I am still keeping my fingers crossed for a weather expansion and wanted to rebuild and restyle some of my earlier contemporary cabins for Sims 3.  Starting small with a cosy one bedroom cabin starter home built on a 10x10 lot and built to last.from timber and stone to endure the winter weather.  Okay, so it is a little basic but this starter is more of a test so I can work out how to uplad the files and share them etc.  This house uses items from the following expansion packs: Ambitions, Generations, Late Nights and Pets.

Day one Blogging...

I have decided to add a blogg so I can organise my downloads and files, take build requests again etc.  I decided that I would start by adding some of my most popular designs for Sims 2 before adding my latest work.



This is the Tyson House which I created in 2006.
