It’s a new year and I’m excited to introduce a new series to the blog with Sims 4 monthly builds. You may know I’ve been playing The Sims since its initial series of games (I still have the complete The Sims game disc and can remember the graphics that seem so primitive in contrast to the game today), but I feel like despite the many (many) years that I’ve been playing, I very rarely share what I’m up to in the game, or the builds that I create.
So I’ve decided to create a thing! I was thinking that in a way to get myself to share my creations, we could all do it together. Starting this month, I plan to share a different themed build on the blog each month. I’ll be uploading each one to the gallery and I hope that you will feel inspired to join in and do the same!

This summer, the library system in my county has been running a reading passport contest where people are encouraged to visit the various library branches around the county in order to potentially win prizes. I have knocked a few of the branches off the list and in the process, I’ve enjoyed the architecture of the different buildings I’ve visited. It doesn’t take much for my mind to wander into thinking of ideas for The Sims – it pretty much happens whenever I leave the house. I decided to challenge myself into making a library, but not just any kind of library… a TREEHOUSE library!
One of my favorite types of constructions are treehouses – I used to dream about having one as a kid and I love the Animal Planet show Treehouse Masters with treehouse aficionado Pete Nelson so I thought I would combine my love of treehouses and my make the ultimate library.
I opted to place it in Brindleton Bay because it fits the cozy aesthetic that I get from the town as a whole. The lot that it is on is the 40×30-sized Tail’s End lot originally labeled as residential located in the Whiskerman’s Wharf not far from the Brindleton Bay docks. It really provides a stellar view of the water and the nearby docks while the treeline, especially with the addition of Seasons, makes it really pop!
Okay, no more rambling, let’s just get to the build, shall we??

With the announcement that Simmers can expect glass roofs in the next game patch, it got me to thinking about some of the other build tools and objects I would like to see come to the game. I’ve been a simmer since the inaugural game The Sims and I am impressed so far with the progress made in The Sims 4, but I am hopeful to see some of my favorite architectural techniques added to the game. I personally love building in the game because it provides me a chance to build my dream house (You know, without having to win the lottery and all that). Here are some building aspects I would absolutely jump for joy over if added to The Sims 4.
