TS4- Drifter II 006.5: Mansion Baron

House 006 Chapter 5

mansionbaron

I figured I’d just start with this little tidbit and then the house tour.  I kept going into build mode and adding more stuff as I thought of it throughout a day so you might notice in the actual chapter pics that some things aren’t there yet.  I’m really proud that I managed to do this without buying the $15,000 violin, of which I bought 2 last time, or just throwing stuff that I didn’t really want on the lawn which I also did then.  Each time I exited build mode with my finger on the printscrn key hoping it would be the time and my patience was rewarded.  I think this splashscreen looks great!

House tour…

The kitchen was completed with a bunch of clutter and overhead cabinets… Now that I look at it there might be too much clutter!  Oops.

The formal dining room.

02-08-17_2-15-28-pm

The rec room.  Behind Diane there is a karaoke machine and foosball table.

Next to the kitchen is a nice little sitting area.  I went with plain colors because the paintings are color enough.

On the other side is a grand piano.  Since starting the building of this house I’ve been lost trying to decide what to do with this space.  I think it turned out pretty nice.

Upstairs we have the master bedroom.

02-08-17_1-45-21-pm

Leroy and Diane’s room.

And Tobias and Ciera’s room… yes I do know that the rooms are supposed to have single beds.  I’ll put them in before the end.

02-08-17_1-46-47-pm

The study is a smaller room so it was hard to get a pic with the walls up.  There are bookshelves on the sides of the desks that you can’t see.

02-08-17_3-13-23-pm

The front of the house.  I added quite a bit more landscaping here and a bit to the back too.

02-08-17_3-12-51-pm

Then here’s the back.  At first I was going to leave the balconies empty but in the end I changed my mind.

02-08-17_3-13-09-pm

And last we have the large balcony shared by the master and child’s room.  I realized that I didn’t have any toys anywhere!  I’d planned to put them in the rec room which originally seemed like a huge room until I started to put a few things in there.  I had a house in my rotation that had kids toys on the balcony and I always liked it and that’s what gave me the idea.  This and the other balcony decorations were what helped us complete the aspiration.

On to the chapter…

I couldn’t find Leroy and he was outside talking to this vampire.  I thought she looked pretty cool when I was deleting them and kept her.  Of course the game just keeps making more but that’s besides the point right?

02-08-17_1-24-38-pm

First vampires and now more aliens?  What is this world coming to?  At least this time it was Ciera that was abducted.  It was really funny because I was in build mode and I saw her by the front door.  I figured something I moved must have somehow moved her down there from her bed or something.  Then I started again and went to send her to bed and she had the abduction icon!  What’s going on with these aliens?  I’m sure it’s some sort of invasion!

02-08-17_1-49-43-pm

I think they really like that painting!  I keep having them make abstract large because I’m trying to replace some of the less expensive ones throughout the house.

02-08-17_2-36-47-pm

Diane aged up to adult.  Selena had just started her third trimester in this pic.

02-08-17_3-18-23-pm

I always forget what sims are childish until I put toys out.  I was going to get a pic of her playing with a toy when Selene walked out and she asked to feel her belly.  Much better pic!

02-08-17_3-19-56-pm

Poor exhausted mommy to be.  She pretty much napped until dark when I just sent her to bed.

02-08-17_3-23-44-pm

This is the first you’ve seen the nursery.  Really I wasn’t happy with it.  I had this idea of putting up paintings that had like colors but surprisingly there really aren’t many primary color kids decor and I went with this grey theme instead which changed again when the baby was born.

02-08-17_3-26-56-pm

Yep I said baby.  Look how much I was anticipating it being twins!  With leyline and both of them having fertility treatment it was still a single birth.  I was extremely disappointed to say the least.

02-08-17_3-27-11-pm

The requisite sparkle pic.  Her name is Freya after the Norse goddess of love.

02-08-17_3-31-19-pm

The second bassinet is sold and the room is re-arranged.

02-08-17_3-32-13-pm

I was wondering where everyone went.  I gave them some free time while I got over my shock of non-twins and girl heir.  At least this balcony is getting a lot of use.  And to think I was going to leave them all bare.

02-08-17_3-35-45-pm

That night Susana visited!  She matches the little central hall area.

I’m thinking I might go for this again.  Haven’t decided yet.

02-08-17_3-48-12-pm

It was so nice having controllable sims with a baby.  I’m sure Tobias will have a high relationship with her since he was in the study all day and so the closest to her.

02-08-17_3-58-13-pm

Then it’s time for little Freya to age up to toddler.  I was a bit shocked to see that red hair when I remembered her mom’s is pink.  I’m not sure how the game determines hair color in that case.  I think it’s awesome, I love red hair.

After several attempted rooms that were weird shapes I found this one that I liked for her on the gallery.  I’m sorry but I must not have written down who made it.  I thought I saved it to my library but I guess not.  I thought this one would transition well into the child stage and then I found a teen room I think I’ll use.  Of course I guess if they have another baby and it’s a boy I’ll have to change most of it.  I don’t know why I have such a hard time with kids rooms. I just never feel like mine look good.

02-08-17_5-10-10-pm

I didn’t change much really, just made all of her clothes match and gave her a second outfit.  I was thrilled when I was trying to get this pic and realized that she got her mom’s green eyes!  Red hair and green eyes, she’s gonna be a knockout!  Watch out boys!

  1. I love the house! looks great. Very nice kitchen. I love the lamp above the piano, nice touch. I love the wallpaper in the master bedroom, it looks pretty. I never thought of doing a black and white nursery. It works really well.
    Aww congrats on little Freya. She looks adorable!

    Freya looks a lot like Luke (heir to house 6). I posted a picture of him earlier on the forum when I saw your heir.

    • Thanks! I loved that light over the piano but most of the time it wouldn’t show it. I would have to mess around with camera angles zooming and stuff to get it to show up for a pic.
