IMPROVED: Jessup Street (formerly Cinderblock) Rowhomes , 4-Unit

I modified my Jessup Street Rowhomes (Cinderblock Rowhomes) to be a bit larger. Now there are two 3 bedrooms and two 2 bedroom units. I added a bit more in landscaping as well and got rid of the breadfruit trees thanks to some information about lightening fires and trees.

Landscaping and potted plants by the doors, also backyards have additional landscaping with a patio, more flowers and trees. Each backyard is unique in their patio and landscaping.

On the main levels, the biggest difference is additional space. There are larger kitchens with eat-in space, more living room space, and half baths downstairs. I didn't decorated the units as much since they are apartments and your simmies will be decorating them. I provided enough to keep the other apartment groupies entertained and satisfied.

The biggest change is on the second floor

All units have two full baths upstairs (one is an en-suite bath for the master bedroom) and all bedrooms are larger. The center units have three bedrooms while the corner units have two bedrooms.

Follower Series: Sari

I've always found interesting new blogs by looking through the lists of followers and commenters, not only on my own site, but the sites of others. I thought that I would do a monthly profile of the followers and commenters of Apple Valley so that others can see some of the other great blogs that are out there. I only chose the sim related blogs of followers or commenter (no personal or non-sim blogs) and of course there are many followers and commenters that do not have a personal blog.
This month, I'm profiling


Sari has a sim's related blog called Wellington.

It's a TS2 blog that follows the lives of the sims that live in Wellington. When I first started reading I was blown away by the quality of the photos and the amazing details of the familes. The blog has been around for a while, so I suggest that you start with the Beginner's Guide in the sidebar to get advice on navigating the site. Otherwise dive right in.

Mixed It Slowly, 2010

Patar, summer, 2010
Jesse is 44, Fiona is 41, Veronika is 12, Jessica and Jennifer are 7, Jeremy is 5

She was giddy during the entire flight, anxious to reach the city and start exploring and start painting.  She wasn't at all nervous when they left that morning. Why should she be? It wasn't her first plane ride, nor her first trip. But for some reason her mother seemed nervous. She would look at her with a sad look and whisper "my baby". Sometimes Veronika did not understand her parents.

Kent Decor Scheme: Final Product, Part 3

Decided to do a post detailing step by step my process for decorating my sims homes.

Meet Jesse and Fiona Kent, readers of my story blog are familiar with these two. Their house burned down-aka, I broke it ^_^ and after rebuilding a new house, they now need to decorate it. We're going to start with the living room.
In Part 1, we saw their design scheme using their favorite colors and design preferences. In Part 2, we went "shopping" for dream items and now in Part 3, we'll put the final living room together.

After deciding on items, I tend to put the room together through trial and error of furniture placement then determine what elements I'm missing. In this case I only had to do three small recolors:

the damask curtains,

the rug

and the brown damask pillow

In the end, the final product looked like this.
I used a combination of Maxis items and custom pieces as well as family photos to personalize the space. It's still a bit plain, but that's all that their simoleans would the moment.

So how do you go about decorating your simmie's places?
