A tale of Sims, alphabets, hair, and being asleep

I haven't blogged for ages, not since January if you don't count my last post, which was in the works for a while.  I'm not up to a lot at the moment because I am having Chronic Fatigue problems.


The plan again

I decided to try Metropix, the same thingy that actual estate agents use to make floorplans. This is the result. I added in the veranda conservatory idea. Metropix is trickier than Floorplanner.com for a few reasons, namely that you can't tell how far along a wall you are placing a door, so I couldn't replicate … Continue reading The plan again

Xmas and NYE round-up

We went to Will's mum's house for a couple of nights for New Year's Eve.     In probably uninteresting news, I've decided to stop straightening my hair and try letting it go curly again.

Whoops I made another house plan

So because … Continue reading Because I love my current house


Revisiting the Abingdon and investigating a multi-generational concept

I had some more thoughts about the floorplan I made that was inspired by the "Abingdon" house plan made by Barratt Homes. The way that the office cut into the main house and reduced the width of the living room was really jarring, so I decided to move the office further up and make it … Continue reading Revisiting the Abingdon and investigating a multi-generational concept


Redesigning a commercial house plan

I know I need to talk about Halloween but first I want to talk about this other thing that's on my mind. So recently an advert popped up on my Facebook feed, for a development of new-build houses not that far from where I live now. I was aware of it previously but felt like … Continue reading Redesigning a commercial house plan
