The beaches house are beautiful great work ladies, as for the conversation well...

Am I right in assuming this challenge is to build a beach house? Are there any particular's I feel like I might have missed post because I couldn't find anything. Guess I got side tracked after reading Anita's post and all that followed. laughloud

Check back to the beginning of this thread, Nikki.

Anneke added this mini challenge, then posted her build for it here :D

I added some links for ts4 beach mods that would allow a base to start from for ts4 builders on the previous page (2)...

(this one is on my list, too, hehe)

Wow Wow Wow!! Fantastic job!! I love it and like the others have said, you nailed the feel of Greece (not that I've ever been there, but I've seen pics and read about it! LOL) ... I love the deck right on the edge of the water, and that little rounded patio jutting out is to die for!

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments, it certainly was a lovely thing to build. It helped that the sun was streaming down outside in RL and I was inspired by my holiday to Greece two years ago. 22 June was my wedding anniversary and in 2015 we went to Greece to celebrate our 30th. One evening we booked a gazebo on the beach and had dinner there it was very beautiful.

What lovely memories Nikki, and to share that with us in your build is such an honour for us!
You are very fortunate to have been able to go to Greece! My hubbie shows no interest at all to go abroad, and I don't want to go without him..... sigh.... and can still hope!

Lorry, that is an absolutely stunning rendition of the original. It is quite obvious that you actually feel your builds.

Suzanne thanks for the links, one of these days I intend to build a beach house and will definitely be needing these. Right now, the Lake house is driving me nuts, I think I have restarted about 5 times already, LOL.

Thank you all so much for you lovely comments.
Yes I do have wonderful memories of that holiday for many reasons mostly it was the last one before my husband health deteriorated, just a year later when we went on holiday he was in a wheelchair. Not sure when or even if we will have another holiday abroad but we have been to so many countries and have such wonderful memories of them all that it should keep me going.
