    I’m so thankful for simmers like you who still do builds and build tutorials for sims 3 💕
    I didnt know you could change the color and intensity of the invisible ceiling lights and I’ve never thought of doing a dark room for my photographer sims 🙏🏼
    And the table idea is super cool! Or the M key cheat thing??
    Sorry I’m commenting as I’m watching 😂
    Also Cozy Vibes only 🙏🏼

    One big pet peeve of mine is when kitchen or bathroom counters overlap with windows. Lol that’s my neurotic thing. I always try to use smaller windows above the counters. Another neurotic build/decorating thing of mine is I hate when wallpaper boards don’t match throughout the house. Sims 3 I don’t run into that problem b/c create a style but in Sims 4 it’s so frustrating especially if I want an accent wall.

    HOLY COW this video was awesome!! I don’t usually leave comments on stuff, but everything you talked about here helped me a hell of a lot. I didn’t even realize spent an hour I watching it all until the very end! Thank you so much for the cool ass content and I’ll be sure to binge watch the rest of your uploads >:D

    Hey, so I have this massive farmhouse that I plopped in Appaloosa Plains and renovated. I don’t have any cc, but I have some store content. Unfortunately it doesn’t have many rooms available to cater to my household. Would you be open to working some Plumdot magic and give it some new life and some plum love? I will gladly share some screenshots of the home and tell you about the household if it helps.

    I love how realistically you think. Despite how frustrating it can be while building, the end result is so worth it knowing it could function as a real house in the real world lol

    26:46 I’ve never thought to put alarms outside, my brain automatically went to “ok but if it was real life, that’s easier access for a thief to try to disable the alarm!” when i place burglar alarms in my sims houses i even keep them away from windows because in my overthinking brain i like to imagine that a burglar could smash the window and disable it lol

    Love the tips! The buydebug lamps are an eye-opener for me 😀 Also the way you turn ugly EA-patterns into amazing stylish patterns is so great, you really have an eye for those things. Cozy vibes only!

  11. Lyndsey on March 16, 2023 at 7:54 am

    OMG!! The ‘disablesnapping’ cheat is going to help sooooo much when building kitchens. 👍😁 This video was super helpful. Thank you!! ❤

  12. Isabella Santana on March 16, 2023 at 7:54 am

    both of these videos were SO useful, I tried to build as I was watching, and, for the first time in YEARS, I was able to come up with a pretty little house for my sim 🥺 so I can’t thank you enough <3
    I just subscribed, and I’ll definitely keep you with your content! you’re amazing

  13. NessiePenguin on March 16, 2023 at 8:02 am

    Amaaaaazing video! Cosy vibes only ❤️

  14. Amy Allen on March 16, 2023 at 8:03 am

    What computer setup etc do you use for the sims 3? It looks like it runs SO smoothly like in build mode when I do CAStyle and drag the patterns it lags so much so it takes like 10x longer (and I have the lazy duchess smooth patch installed…)

  15. Zahrah Cuarthol on March 16, 2023 at 8:04 am

    I am laughing at all your so-called "neurotic tips" as I work as an architect and I *absolutely* do these things because that’s how houses really work! LOL Door swings, plumbing walls, hall widths, kitchen layouts… these are all realistic things to consider.

    Or maybe I’m just neurotic right along with you 😂

  16. Natsu Sou on March 16, 2023 at 8:05 am

    This is SOOOOO useful! I don’t think I’ve ever seen something more useful than this in my entire life!! Like for real.. This is definitely going to change the way I build in sims 3. Thank you so much for making this wholesome video!! *♡* Such simple things but it is amazing, truly

  17. Judi Albert on March 16, 2023 at 8:07 am

    Awesome video. I am as neurotic as you about placement of objects like doors, stoves, showers. Not so much lamps because I run an extension cord under my couches irl. 🙂

  18. ZalyBrainlessGenius on March 16, 2023 at 8:09 am

    Yees! I need rules when creating anything (not just to follow them, but in order to break the rules you FIRST must know them yknow) and I’m so happy I’ve learned the kitchen triangle rule today 😀

  19. Tenn Tea on March 16, 2023 at 8:12 am

    Thanks so much for all the useful info! I’ve been trying for ages to figure out how to get my counters and bars to work together like that! Also going to download the stencil remover mod immediately! So excited and inspired now!❤️

  20. iristabernero on March 16, 2023 at 8:14 am

  22. kessiesims on March 16, 2023 at 8:16 am

    I had no idea that the m key allows you to sort through all the slots!! I guess you learn something new every day!

  23. Kpop Feels Good on March 16, 2023 at 8:17 am
