Nikki - I love P!nk TOOOO! Your house is going to be gorgeous I can already tell! Your inspiration room is fabulous! Girly and eclectic all in one! And your recolors are spot on! You even were able to recreate the exact rug! I'm looking forward to seeing what else you do with it!

I built this house for the March FTGU challenge at Sim Pearls but due to work commitments and unexpected visitors I didn't get it finished in time. So I thought I'd show you what I did in my album.


This house was built from an original 1870's house plan of a Semi-detached house in Ealing (Middlesex until 1965 when it became part of Greater London) built for the prosperous middle classes. It has five bedrooms, a dressing room and a bathroom. These houses would rent for about £50 a year.

04-04-18_2:33:46 PM


The house is set over three floors and is owned by Mrs and Mrs Harrington and their 9 youngest children the oldest two are away at boarding school.


The ground floor

04-04-18_3:13:00 PM




upon entering the house you find yourself in the entrance hall, here a small fire warms the visitor from the cold wet English weather, an arch leads you to the rear hall, just under the stairs you can see the baby carriage.

04-04-18_2:35:08 PM


04-04-18_2:38:06 PM

Next is the drawing room, here Mrs Harrington receives her visitors during the day, she has many friends and is involved in a lot of charity work. Usually she is out visiting but on Wednesday's she stays home to receive guests. The family spend their evening here reading, playing cards or playing music. Mr Harrington has his desk in here as the room designated for a study was needed as a bedroom for their large family. The family portrait sits on the wall behind the settee.


04-04-18_2:38:51 PM


04-04-18_2:40:25 PM

Through to the back hall we next enter the dining room. As you see it is set out for dinner tonight Mr and Mrs Harrington will be entertaining Mr Harrington senior, Mr Harrington's sister and her husband and Mrs Harrington's brother. The children do not have their meals with their parents they have them in the day nursery.

04-04-18_2:42:16 PM


Through to the kitchen, this has a built in oven and range which Mrs Harrington does not like she is hoping to persuade her husband to modernise the kitchen. The Harringtons have four servants who visit daily a cook, a house maid, a kitchen maid and a gardener. They have one live in servant a nanny for the children.


04-04-18_2:44:38 PM



Behind the kitchen is the scullery and a 'privy' which the servants use.Laundry and washing of dishes is done in here by Hannah the kitchen maid, she also assists Mrs Franks the cook. All the cleaning of the house is done by rose the housemaid who also serves the family their meals. Mr Franks is the gardener and also handy man fixing things when needed.


04-04-18_2:46:18 PM

The first floor is where the bedrooms and only bathroom are. There are three bedrooms one for the girls, one for the boys and the parents room which also has a small dressing room off it.

04-04-18_3:12:52 PM

Mr and Mrs Harringtons bedroom

04-04-18_2:47:34 PM


04-04-18_2:48:51 PM

The dressing room, which has a (unplumbed) bath, water is carried across form the bathroom to fill it and a wash basin with matching jug. It is Rose's job in the morning to ensure that hot water is int eh jug for washing and Mr Harrington to shave.

04-04-18_2:50:39 PM


The girls bedroom, when the oldest children come home for the holidays the younger two children have to share one bed.

04-04-18_2:54:05 PM


The boys room.


04-04-18_2:58:11 PM

The only bathroom newly fitted with a flushing wc and hotrunxing hot water.


04-04-18_2:55:31 PM

04-04-18_2:57:29 PM

Net we go upstairs to the top floor, the nursery floor. Here are the day nursery which is where the younger Harrington children have their meals, it used a s school room where a Governess comes in every morning to teach the girls and a tutor comes in the afternoons to teach the boys. There is the night nursery and Nanny's bedroom.

04-04-18_3:12:27 PM


The day nursery

04-04-18_3:01:10 PM


04-04-18_3:00:27 PM

The night nursery where the four youngest children sleep, they are also bathed in the room the small wooden bath is filled from the bathroom below and the buckets of hot water carried up by the maids. Hannah may also help out with the children if she is not needed in the kitchen.

04-04-18_3:02:18 PM


04-04-18_3:05:30 PM

Finally the nanny's room, here you can see a sewing machine, as well as looking after the 9 youngest Harrington children Nanny is responsible for ensuring their clothes are repaired and altered if needed.

04-04-18_3:09:56 PM

So ends the 30 second tour. If you would like to seem more pictures of the house they can be found in an album link

I love the story behind this huge family!
The house is amazing!
Do we have windows like that in sims 4?? Your build is so perdect, and I feel sorry that you were not able to post your entry.

From the story and the decor I gather that we are talking about the period times? I do not visit SimPearls often, so I do not know what the requirements were.

But, to me, this is a stunning build!

I've become a bit obsessed with the TV show Once Upon a Time and am currently binge watching it. I decided to have a go at building Mary Margarets apartment. Here are my efforts. It's not an exact copy as it's not always easy finding the ccc  needed. I built it on the penthouse apartment in the Art district in San Myshuno.

Nikki, I do not know the show, but the apartment is gorgeous!!
The shabby chic style is one of my favourites, and you have done it perfectly.
The dollhouse in the bedroom is to die for.... please please tell me where to find it.

I sense a theme going on now. When they round 3 was a doctors waiting room I suspect that all rounds will be community lots. I will post pictures of those later after the scores are in.
