I have created my first home for my new world! Introducing The Birchwood! It’s a 2 bedroom, 1 bath starter home, it is available empty for $9,502 or furnished for $17,982. It’s the perfect starter home for a new sim or a couple starting out. With a spectacular view of the waterway, it’s landscaped with its namesake Birch trees. Even though it’s on a smaller lot, there’s a lot of useful space left outdoors for your sims to even expand their house. Very quiet neighborhood (considering it’s the only house on this block so far), with a park close by and a nice fishing spot right outside the back door.

I’ve been thinking about doing this for awhile but since I’m so into building right now, I’ve decided to make my own custom world. This means everything from scratch. I’m starting off in my favorite section of Willow Creek. Since every town has 2 or 3 clusters with different lot sizes, I can make a range of homes in a certain theme or have similar styles. I’ve always felt Willow Creek was more of a suburban area, very quaint and with a lot of traditional style homes. This section has 5 lots, which will include a starter home (20 x 15) , 3 mid-level homes (20 x 30) and finally the larger lot (40 x 30) for a big family home. I may actually do 2 starters, 2 mids and the large home. Obviously starters will have to be less than $20k, the mid range homes will be up to $40k and the larger home can be over $100K. These homes have to be furnished or if not furnished be sufficient for someone to move in and furnish it with their starting balance. Oh and another thing, these homes must be landscaped. So if you’re not following along-
Willow Creek Neighborhood 1-
-2 Starter Homes under $20k, 2 Mid-Level Homes up to $40k and 1 large home worth over $100k.
-Must be landscaped and furnished or landscaped and have enough left over to furnish (for starter homes)
-Must have similar style, be it a roof style, exterior wall look, features, etc. Think of it as a neighborhood theme. They don’t have to be cookie cutter homes but the style of the neighborhood is important, ie no modern style homes next to a victorian style home.
I know there are probably challenges like this already but this is just my own personal challenge. In my neighborhood, all the homes will have Tree Themed Names. Just felt kinda fitting.
