 Welcome to Swallow's Rest

This 7 bedroom and 7.5 bathroom home was created for Gargantua's "Build a Byrd House" Competition hosted on The Simmers Society.

The theme was "Byrds" and if you look hard enough you will find a bird in every room in the house, also note the Swallow shaped swimming pool to the rear of the house.  There isn't much in the way of art work in this home, but as the Byrds are all keen photographers, there are plenty of frames for them to display their own prints.

I shall take you on a short tour of the house now, but should you wish to see more, please feel free to check out my picasa web album here

Here is the entrance way to the main house

Leading off to the left is the living or great room

There will be plenty of space to display all the relics your Sims will collect from their foreign holidays

Also a photography suite as the Byrd family trait is Photographer's Eye, it even comes with the perfect place to take those family portraits.

Here is a shot of the formal dining area

The kitchen

Upstairs are 6 bedroom suites, I won't post pics of them all!

There is also a nursery incorporated into one of the master suites

All the bedroom's in this home come complete with their own en-suites (most have been tastefully decorated with a range of custom patterns by the incredibly talented Peacemaker ic - here's a link to his website)  Here is just a sample:

A home gym

A Mausoleum was a requirement

The Den wasn't a pre-requisite but I made one anyway!

Outside on this level is a play area, a meditation zone equipped with the latest in Sim-Fu equipment, a nectar maker and in the sub basement the nectar cellar.

Let's pop over to the Annexe now:

And underneath the Annexe is the garage and workshop

All that's left to show you now is the garden area to the rear of the house


Well I hope you enjoyed your tour of Swallow's rest, all that is left is for me to thank everybody over at TSS who offer inspiration and advice every step of the way.
