I got him all set up in his new bachelor pad, so here's some decor pics and some shots of the man himself!
The inspiration came to me in one of those lovely creative moments where you aren't even trying to get inspired, it just hits you. I live on the west coast of Canada (around the Vancouver area) so there's lots of forests, mountains, ocean... just lots of NATURE. And it's rarely flat. And so one night it popped into my head - cabin on a hill. A hill covered with BC-esque wildlife - lots of evergreen, lots of ferns.
It was a little ambitious considering that up to this point, I'd only ever made houses on completely flat lots. But considering it was my first crack at building hillside, I love how it turned out! Even my boyfriend, to whom outdoorsy-ness and log cabins totally appeal to (but Simming does not) thought it was really cool.
So without further ado, here is House on a Hill (I couldn't think of a less horror-film sounding title, sorry...)
So I fiddled around with the roofline a bit so I could give it a bit of that west coast/craftsman look I wanted... and then the rest was blood, sweat and tears. Well, not really... but I did need to create a version of the rock wall you see on the exterior of the house with siding pieces... which took several rounds of trial and error to get right, but I was in a perfectionist mood. And further in that vein, I gotta say I'm feeling very proud because I used no fewer than seven of my own wallpapers/paints in this house! Makes me feel accomplished!
Anyways, without further ado here is my decoration interpretation of 21 Love St.!
