Hello Everyone! Today I am happy to finally share with you all a rather ambitious project I created as well as the challenge that goes along with it!

This lot was based on the famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose California. Heres the link to the articles on it if you're not familiar with it: This was also inspired by the recent movie based on the house that just came out. I knew it would be impossible to try and recreate the real house in Sims due to it's size and the fact it has no official floorplan, so I came up with a fun little challenge for myself and others if they maybe would like to give it a whirl. I started out with a small home of five rooms on a 64x64 size lot. Then over the course of 30 days, I challenged myself to add 3-5 new rooms of any size, shape, style, etc. onto the house every single day for the whole time period.It didn't matter where the rooms went, I just had to keep building nonstop!

This massive mansion has 28 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms (with one unfinished for you all to decorate yourself), 3 kitchens, and 3 dining rooms, plus who knows how many other rooms. It all extends from the original 5 room tudor home in it's center. It's actually been super fun coming up with all the ridiculous secret passages and oddities that come with having to continuouly construct for almost a month straight. There's a room filled with nothing but mirrors, stairs going nowhere, bathrooms with secret passages into different parts of the house, windows looking into different rooms, doors leading nowhere, hidden bookcase passages, a room dedicated entirely to a bathtub and more!

I would be interetsed to know if anyone else wanted to give this a whirl! Doesn't matter what game you have, the premise stays the same ^^
- Start with a five room house on a 64x64 lot (or use one of the games premade homes, just move it to the 64x64 lot)
- Over 30 days (or longer if you'd want) Add 3-5 new rooms of any shape and size to the house every day.
- Once the days are over, landscape your new creation and don't get lost!


This was a great challenge and such a fun build! I highly encourage anyone who wants to stretch their creativity to try it out! I would love to see what you all can come up with! Happy Simming!
