I tried to build a starter here initially, but it was too hard so i demolished it, and helped out @tinkerbelch who was struggling with a house for a sim and came up with this from here attempt. I really need to break free of the gambrels, they are multiplying XD
I don’t usually finish a house in creams and beige because I find they are often muddy and over-used, this one is very delightful. It is also not a Gambrel, so that’s good, I may have stopped them from spreading through Brindleton Bay XD
Awhile ago someone asked me how I built the roof on my Dawkins House, and I responded that perhaps I could write up a tutorial on gambrel roofs. Unfortunately I can’t remember who sent me the original ask, but I’ve finally finished the tutorial!
It’s a Beginner-level guide that assumes you know at least a little bit about the TS4 build tools and walks you through it step by step. Let me know if something doesn’t make sense!
A large four-bedroom brick and stucco house with a gambrel roof and a large front porch with a pergola. The rear of the house is entirely taken up by an enclosed porch, covered porch, and a large balcony above them.

This is a tutorial of sorts for all the vulture culture and museum science folks out there! It’s going to have somewhat-graphic images of a dead animal (no gore, but exposed bone and muscle).
In this image series, I’m going to walk through how to skin out a bird without having to destroy any of the bones. But take note: if you want to have both a skeletal articulation and a taxidermy mount, you need to mold/cast.
Oh, and as always: the animals I process have all been legally obtained from roadkill, hunters, and wildlife rehabbers under a USFWS salvage permit, to be housed in a museum collection. Always check your local laws and regulations before grabbing dead stuff!
