Sims 4: My Childhood Home

I have to show off here for a minute, because while I am not a total master of the Sims 4 Building Tools, I can get pretty damn close to the exact replication of places I know intimately — namely, the house I grew up in.

The living room and my childhood bedroom wouldn’t fit linearly on the plot, but making it work

Parents’ bedroom, complete with massive bookshelves, home office space, and tiny couch where I sat to watch TV after a shower and killed the bird I forgot I was rescuing

Aunt and Uncle’s garden outside their annex, home to many pre-salted slugs

Aunt and Uncle’s bedroom, where I once staged a break-in for absolutely no reason and haven’t heard the end of over 20 years later

There are many additional and better-angled screenshots I could upload, but you get the idea. This project was so accurately depicted, it blew my mother’s mind when I sent her the images.

Fun fact: when she did eventually remodel the entire property, she did so according to plans drawn from a model of building blocks I constructed. The house turned out, unfortunately, quite true to my plans. A big, blocky, pink, stucco fortress.

I won’t be simulating that monstrosity.
