Tuscan Charm: Morellino Town House

hello all,

today i bring you Morellino Town House, a 3 house lot with the central building acting as the primary residence. With the new tools added with Late Night i thought i would see how easy it would be to actually make a functional townhouse and it is indeed quite easy!

This house is designed for the active sim that does not need a large outdoor area. It is spread over 4 floors with elevators acting as the go-between. it is very functional in this respect even with the lag of the elevators.

Georgian Townhouse: The epitome of Opulence

The Georgian architecture style was very much ahead of its time in my opinion. It mixed simple symmetrical design with light, bright open spaces to create a style that was as far away from Victorian architecture as a dog is from a cat. I guess this is why i love it as much as modern architecture, it mixes old world style with minimal design elements creating a timeless design. This build i am bringing you today is a Georgian Townhouse, something i have wanted to build and due to Ambitions and new sets available from the store it has become possible.

Sandstone Ridge Usonian: A Sloped Lot House

 This is the 4th house in my FLW series and is a vast improvement on the house which resided at the original location in Bridgeport. Sandstone Ridge Usonian is based on the house designed for George Sturges. It is designed specifically for a sloped lot and was a perfect choice for 153 Windsor Drive Bridgeport.

Bleu Victorian: A Challenge for Myself

This build, a Victorian as the name suggests, was a challenge bestowed upon me by Ruthless_kk. I said i was no good at building and decorating in this style and she told me she was uncomfortable building modern homes. I took it upon myself to build this house to push myself. I am not completely happy with it but i as still surprised i was able to complete it. It’s taken a couple of months on and off but i did it.

Jacob’s House: A FLW Usonian

Frank Lloyd Wright was a very influential architect where he became known for the prairie and usonian architecture styles. Usonian designs were differentiated by their flat roofs, stone/brick and wood facades with open living spaces with plenty of windows blurring the line between inside and out. Jacob’s House, which was the first in a series of Usonian styled houses, was built for Herbert Jacob, a newspaperman. This Simple house had an L shaped design and although it was straightforward to construct, it had a simple elegance, making this style famous and imitated by architects the world over.

Cherrywood House: A Little Bit of the Old, A Little Bit of The New

Hello all.

Today i bring you another house, smaller in scale but hopefully still well executed. Cherrywood House is inspired by Penfield House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. 

Note: I forgot to put in the exact address of this build in bridgeport for the dl'ers. it is a 44x34 lot (silly i know) and if placed in bridgeport should go at 64 Applewood Lane in the Celebrity Neighbourhood up near the retreat community lot. you can place it on a larger lot too

Falling Water: a dedication to the masterpiece

Today i bring you a build very close to my heart, the basis of the house built by Frank Lloyd Wright and was very much ahead of its time. That House is the Falling Water House, and i bring you my version of this beautiful build.

This lot was built following the floor plan but due to some elements not being able to translate into the game (such as the bridge) i took an artistic approach and added my own elements to the design. CAP patterns were used to give it a natural look along with forest vegetation to hide the house away from prying eyes. I designed it specifically for 302 Silverstone way, a 60x60 lot in Bridgeport due to its sloping nature which helped to create the design. It is indeed one of my greatest builds and i hope it does justice to the original.

The House itself contains:

3 bedrooms
4 bathrooms
Formal and informal lounges
Study area
Large kitchen
Music space
Spa area
6 balcony areas
Covered pergola
Plunge pool

The house itself has a second floor entry through security gates which blend well into the Fir forest and the natural elegance of the waterfall at the base of the house.


Furnished: $415,863
Unfurnished: $307,330

Custom Content:

Contains 2 CAP (create a pattern) patterns. These are the signature stone patterns seen inside and out.

Store Content:

Contains items from various sets but mainly from these sets
- Collectionne Stancke
- Sun Surf and Sand
- Glitter and Glam 

Expansion/Stuff Packs:

World Adventures
Late Night
High End Loft Stuff

Well thats it. i just wanted to add that although this may turn people off with the store items, completing this lot without it would not have done it justice and that can also be said about the use of CAP patterns. i hope you all enjoy this build as much as i do. I also hope your sims in Bridgeport are space from those pesky paparazzi

4shared and My Creations

Just posting to say that all new builds from The Harwood onwards will come with an alternate 4shared link for downloading. all old builds will only be on the exchange unless updated as due to the constant patches and updates to the game it can eventually become obsolete and uninstallable.

From The Archive: Peacy's Pad

I have a few builds in progress at the moment but until i have playtested and finished snapping the pics they are far off being uploaded to share. In the mean time i thought i would share a build very close to my heart. This house was built for The Simmers Society Town Of TSS where the members of this site, where i am a moderator, add a house and avatar for the members to dl and play. this was my contribution to the project.

You can find the slideshow link here

This lot does contain cc patterns and items from the sims 3 store. this house was specifically designed with my personal tastes in mind and i didn't hold back using the store content. this is my dream house, what i would live in given the chance and it gave me such joy building and sharing it with the TSS and sims community. 

i hope you enjoy this house from my archive :)

Is There CC?

All patterns are either from the base game or updates. i have recently decided to go thrid party cc free for houses as there can be too many issues relating to them from the constant updates and corruption that seems to occur.

 The game version i am running is

well i hope you enjoy this build as much as i did making it. i have a lot of projects on at the moment but due to RL commitments i can probably only get 1 lot up a week. stay tuned for updates and archive posts in the coming weeks

From The Archive: The Beach House Series

well since the exchange is acting up again i thought i would share with you one of my past series of builds. they are designed as beach houses on smaller lots to take in the view of the ocean. decorated in colours taken from items found near the sea they were quite popular and some of my favourite builds to date.

first of the series was the Driftwood:

Next up was The Sandstorm:

the final house of this series is The Noonflower:

now these builds do use the garage door from the BahHaus set from the store which can be found at this link:

it is not needed and will be replaced with the base game door if you don't have the store item in game. the base game door looks just as nice and for some people, they may think its better.

well i hope you enjoyed this archive post and i should have a new build up soon.

A Little Bit of Filing

i have been creating houses for the sims 3 since it was released in June of 2009. there are quite a lot i have shared with the community. 

here is the link to my sims 3 studio:

i also have a TSR account found here:

there are numerous builds found at these locations. over the coming months i will showcase some of my sets for you all here to make them a little more accessible for the visitors.

Welcome All!

Hello all and welcome to my blog. some of you may know me from the sims 3 creative corner but due to the overwhelming issues plaguing the forums i have decided to start a blog to showcase my creations. as you may be aware this will mostly be houses for the sims 3 games but i also make patterns as well when needed. 

i hope anyone new will find something of interest within these digital pages as i add new items periodically. i am a university student so this may not be on a continuous basis but i hope you find my work of a high quality which is both functional and stylish.

as a note to all downloaders i will not use third party custom content (cc) items (furniture, painting etc.) but I may use cc patterns (these will be in the sims3pack format and transfer) or items from the sims 3 store and expansion/stuff packs. i want to provide these creations that a free from excess content that may harm peoples games. with the new additions to the sims 3 franchise it is becoming easier to create interesting lots without the need for these third party items. after all if you do have these sorts of items in your game, they can be added easily at your discretion.

well i think that's all and i hope you will enjoy what i have to offer.
