The Real Life Sims – Definite walls

Just a small update. We had a meeting again yesterday. The walls, windows and doors are definite and we’ll receive a technical drawing next week. It’ll have all the correct measurements and a list of minor options. This means the definite design is almost there. And then the real work gets started.

The Real Life Sims – The Architect

After acquiring the land, the next step is the house. You can pick a house from the catalog and have it build as is, but where’s the fun in that? I’ll take this chance to make this my dream house. Which means that it won’t be like the other houses build here. Most houses have a standard lay-out, build for optimization. Enough space for a family with two or three children.

The Real Life Sims

Something happened today and I wanted to let everyone know, because I’m excited and I’ll talk about it here. I just signed in for my own piece of land. It’s nothing big. The Americans among you will think too much of it now. It’s a terrace house, so nothing like the screenshot above.

But it’s an amazing opportunity for someone with a low-income to be able to build their own house. I always loved building houses in The Sims and this seems like the perfect opportunity to play The Sims in real life. That’s why I’ll be documenting it here as a series called The Real Life Sims.

The whole process from signing to getting the key will be about two years and I’ll expect it to keep me busy. So if things slow down, this project is the reason.

Yes, I will be making an awesome gaming room.
