I absolutely adore townhouses, and yours are amazing. I don't think I could actually use them though, as they have so many rooms and my lack of talent is... BUT I STILL LOVE THEM.

Woah,that was a long Hiatus.Guess i should dust everything off....coth coth...!

Okay Guys,brace yourself,because i'm back!!!Okay,actually i was never gone but i took a little Hiatus from simming.Daily Work and faster loading Games made me kinda lazy to open Sims 2,but i guess everyone knows that Feeling.You wanna play Sims 2 but you're too lazy to wait for the Game to be loaded.
Last Week i was sick and didn't go to Work,so i played (or,build) Sims again.
I continued working on a House i started last Year.It's a large detached Tenement Building with 3 Apartments and a Penthoue Studio as a modern Addition on an old Building:









Fake Stairway to Basement....





Livingroom in Groundfloor Apartment

Hey Guys,i want to show you something i`m working on right now.It is (of course) a Building from Brooklyn,but this Time from Ditmas Park.
What`s so different about that?Well,Ditmas Park is known for the large amount of remaining Queen Anne Style detached Homes.They are mostly pretty large and have nicely done Lots.The Houses appear often very well maintained and are full of historic Details inside.

This House is such a classic Ditmas Park Queen Anne.Right now i don`t remember the Adress but the Floorplan and Lot design was taken from a Real Life House.































I hope you like my newest Pictures.I will add more when the House is completely finished.It still needs some basic Furnishing and the Garden needs some Detailing.

Well,quite some Time passed since my last posting.I finished a new Lot which will soon find it`s Way to be uploaded.

Brooklyn - 282-286 16th Street

This Group of semi detached Rowhouses might not be one of the prettiest Houses you have ever seen but they are quite affordable and they have a lot of Potential to turn into something beautiful.





















I hope you enjoyed my latest Pictures.

Thank you Toadflax,
i`m always happy to see that People like my Work and that i inspire others to be creative.
Speaking of creative,i did it again.
I was in a somewhat creative Mood and i'm doing some finishing Touches on my newest Lot i plan to upload.
It is a victorian Townhouse,based on one from Brooklyn (yeah,digging through Realty Sites and Architecture Blogs really keeps me busy) and i think it's pretty much finished.
If you want to have a Look at the Original,just google for Brooklyn-459 East 19th Street







The Livingroom and the Parlor







The Diningroom



The Kitchen





So,what do you think of it,does it look habitable?

Thanks Astoria,but believe me,more than often i have to skip some Details or modify the whole House.

I kinda fell in Love with the little dark red Buildings that are housing the Italian American Museum in Manhattan.
Recently i read that some of them will be demolished to make Way for another out of Shape Condo Building so i thought it would be cool if our Sims could enjoy them in some Way.
I think the Buildings work best as an Apartment Lot with a few tiny Apartmants in each House.







The Sims that will move in the Top Floor of the Corner Building will be extra lucky,because they get their own private Balcony.

So,what do you Guys think of it?

Gosh darn it,itīs quite dusty in here.......cough cough!Yeah,iīm sort of back from my hiatus since i recently accidentally hit the Sims2 icon on my desktop and started the game :D


I even brought something new to show you guys,itīs a fancy mid century bungalow.

1956 National Homes R-131

56n-r131

This building is based on the floorplan and appearance of the historic bungalow above and is clean,new and move in ready.Of course itīs not furnished except for the kitchen.The kitchen is decked out in the latest indoor fashion and trends to appeal to the female part of the young couple or small family.If she likes the kitchen,the house is already halfway sold...oh and donīt be so shocked,itīs the 1950s here!
