Building a dream house in The Sims 3! Combination of modern and classical house design.

7 parts in total. Last part is a slideshow of the house.

After a few months of absence from uploading videos, I am back with a brand new house! As you can see, the house and its name are inspired by the piano. The outdoor pool is meant to represent the three piano pedals. I was planning this house to be entered for bstones's competition, but I was late. So now I am uploading this for fun :)

There are 7 parts to the video. Parts 1-6 are the construction and designing while the last one is a slideshow of the house. This is my first time doing a video that shows the whole building process. Hope it is alright and not too draggy. I spent about 4 hours in total building this house and I am quite happy of it. This time, the mix of modern and classical design seems to go well together.

Through the course of watching the video, you may notice that I removed certain building elements, notably the airspace in the middle of the house on the 2nd floor. I find it ugly after a while, so I replaced it with a drinking corner and a hall. Not to happy with the void hall though. I tried putting something but it doesn't work out well, as you can see. You may be wondering, what is the dark ugly room near the entrance for? Well, it's basically a storeroom. It's just to show that the house is complete with all sorts of functional and realistic rooms. Well to be honest, I could not think what else to put in that extra room :P

To summarise, things I am happy with:

-the two-sided embedded aquarium
-the kitchen
-first floor living room
-guest room (the greenish coloured one)

Things I am NOT too happy with:

-The empty hall in the middle
-overall exterior design. It looks too plain and square-ish
-I just realized after I finished recording, that I forgot to put in a car :P never mind that

I may or may not be uploading more The Sims 3 houses due to real life circumstances. Maybe the start of next year I will be active again.

Lastly, I have to say a very big thank you as always, to LuigiRules who have inspired me heavily on house design. I am sorry if you find my house similar to some of his because it is mostly unintentional.

Comments and critics are most welcome.
