Shrunken Square Coffee Tables - Resized for more Usability



I loved the idea of square coffee tables when they were introduced, but i think everyone can say they are a bit too big. The resizing of them is easy with in-game cheats, but placing things become a pain. I was tired of not getting enough use out of them, so I made some non-default versions that are 75% the original size. They work so much better with my style of decorating, so hopefully you all enjoy them too.

Castellana Cul de sac - A modest Mission home in the Valley


The last home I needed to share for my Del Sol Valley rebuild was the lot i was using for Johnny Zest. I ended up turning it into a Mission-style home and 2 levels and a modest size suitable for a small family. I think it has charm and plays to the more rustic side of the LA inspired world which contains a lot of these types of houses. I love how it turned out myself.
Do note, I needed to change the roofing on the garage to fix a bug associated with disappearing ceilings caused by the glass roofing. So that area is slightly different now.

Brentwood House - Palatial home in Del Sol Valley

I love this place, I also hate it because it is such a huge lot. Filling a 64x64 and making it feel like it belongs in a neighbourhood such as this one in Del Sol Valley is tricky. I think I managed it though. It just took ages to get there. The home is also much larger then I am comfortable with in order to achieve the look i wanted. So decorating took a lot longer then I had planned. it is done now so it is ready to be shared and hopefully others enjoy all the work that went into building it.

Clayton Bungalows - Del Sol Valley Homes


I had initially built a palatial Mission-style home on the large lot in the valley district but felt it just felt too much for the culdesac. So I demolished it and 'subdivided' the lot into 3 smaller homes in a craftsman style. I felt so much better about this approach, even if i couldn't have them as individual houses with families. I have only furnished the middle home as that was my favourite, but you are all free to choose which you prefer and decorate it to your liking.

Ward Manor - Grand home in the Hills of Del Sol Valley


The large lots in Del Sol Valley were a challenge. The biggest is yet to come, but Ward Manor was hard. I wanted a grand home that suits Judith's personality and cannon background i imagine. Her original home did not meet expectations so I rebuilt it. And boy oh boy did i rebuild it. With the same feel as the downtown celeb hangout The Westridge, Ward Manor is grand and a statement in the valley. It is there as a monument of Judith's accomplishments and the power she has in the town. Just as I wanted it.

Avalon Villa - Del Sol Valley Eco Home


One of my lots from Del Sol Valley makeover. I was going to upload them as a lot dump I just don't have them all finished, so separate it is. This one is Thorne's residence and I use the original house as a base for this eco-friendly wonder. With garden roofing, clean simple white exterior, and cutting edge design, this is the proud home of an eco-warrior.
