Dog Day Afternoon

with 8 comments

A hot, sultry afternoon at the end of August, when all you want to do is to lay down with a nice ice cold beer. It’s baking down at the garage and nothing is moving except for puppies and pigeons.

Introducing KraftWork‘s “Converted Garage” which will be at the upcoming FaMESHed event, starting September 1st.  This is a collaboration with TRIIN and if you think you’ve seen something similar, well you have!  It’s the custom build garage from The Lost Forever sim but converted so that you could also use it as a home.  Also showing the Vintage Truck Bar and Mirror by unKindness which is currently a special Marketplace offer to August 30th.

 

Now you also get that gorgeous Smith & Sons sign!  The garage doors fold up and down with a click and inside there’s a large space for the cars ‘n trucks and that opens up into a room that is plenty big enough for the essentials of a house.

 

Let’s go around the sides of the garage. Here at the back you’ve got the garage silo which is a nice piece architecturally in itself.

 

Then here you’ve got the side front elevation, showing the TV mast at the end and a side entrance into the large back room.  The base is part of the build so you don’t have to go looking for a suitable flat piece to park your garage on.

And here we are at the back.  This would be rather nice set into a landscaped garden if you were thinking of using it for a home.

Trucks and pets to finish with!  That dog’s got the right idea.

I think there’s a bit further to go to the beach, though, looking at the forest trees ‘n all!  This is the brand new prefab by Galland Homes, it’s called the Savannah and it’s a Southern style beach home.  Absolutely beautiful and yes, the porch is a wrap around affair so you get  more than your fair share of outdoorsy space.

A large home,  it’s recommended for 3072 sq m plots and has a Land Impact of 244, that’s surprisingly low for such a large and detailed property.  Double doors open onto the porch at both front and back of the house.  Downstairs, there’s a family sized room with a blazing fireplace, two other reception rooms, space for a kitchen and a powder room under the stairs – or maybe it’s a good room for Harry when he comes to stay!  The stairs are easy to traverse, even for very tall avatars. Upstairs you get a nice landing with doors off to master suite, two further bedrooms and another room which you could use as you wished, maybe a bathroom or nursery.

 

On the outside, the shutters have a texture change for black, blue, teal, maroon and grey. I chose the blue here mainly because I had the Ca’Pepe sofa and light from Concept} that matched up rather well.  The colours do change the character of the house, it’s surprising.  Inside, it’s quite possible to re-texture and tint the interior walls, instructions are included. The ambient shadow effect is largely transparent and baked on a plane in front of the texturable wall. Thus, you should be able to change the colour or texture and maintain the baked shadow effects by following the instructions. It is quite a cool décor at the default and so you’d be able to make it much warmer with re-texturing.  I’ll decorate one of the interior rooms this week and link back to this blog post so you can see (what a mess I’ve made of it 🙂 ).

Click on any of the interior light switches and you’ll find all the features of the home, including security.

 

I think this beautiful prefab is equally at home in the country as it would be down at the beach and if you check out the Galland Homes Flickr, you’ll see the blogger pictures in various environments.
