The Sims Freeplay- House Design Competition Winners!

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition!

For those of you who don’t know the competition was to create a one story house for a couple with 2 children.

I received lots of great enteries so it was hard to pick my favourite but I finally have!

I’ve picked a winner on a regular plot and also one on a premium plot.

I have included details about the winning houses below, with pictures and a floor plan of the house so you can copy the layout easily.

Winner- Regular Plot

house design comp winner 2

imageAs I myself have a pink and white themed house I was really happy to see this design! There is a lovely big kitchen at the entrance of the house which leads to the really nice living room, I love how simple but effective this design is. The bathroom is in a good place, between the master bedroom and bedroom 1.

Bedroom 1 would be perfect for a preteen girl, but could always be changed to a teen room when she grows up, the same goes for bedroom 2 which at the moment is a cude toddler room!

The garden is very neat, I like the layout of the flowers and the whole outside area, the garden plots are hiding away behind the bathroom keeping the place tidy.

twins rooms and living area

When I first saw this house I said wow, I loved how pretty the girls rooms were as Jem said: “I designed for a couple with twin girls but it could be easily changed for boys.”  I really liked how the space had been used in the corridors, for a one story house you sometimes feel like there isn’t enough room but this way of using areas usually not in use is great!

The living room flooring is a great colour, again this could always be changed to match twin boys. There is a lovely sized kitchen and master bedroom and the bathroom is in a good place, the cinema room is also a nice added touch.

There is a good sized swimming pool in the garden, which could always be made bigger if you wanted.



Well done to the winners!
