Meet Rebecca and Dana Smith, the mother and daughter duo. Rebecca, the mother, works as a Cutpurse, I know not a very respectable line of work but she's a wonderful mother and a fantastic cook.
Dana is a shy little girl and in any situation she prefers books rather than toys and tv.
Since Rebecca's job isn't quite paying much a small house was the best solution and maybe the only solution ( i don't think any bank would loan money to a thief Bandit Rofl ).
Heidy would be appreciated. Sun

Great job springjunkie! I really like the backstory you gave them. Also the layout of the house is well done, you did so much with such a small space.... even worked in a spot for a washer and dryer!

Thought I'd give this a shot, haven't done a challenge in the while. Feedback appreciated.

A newly wedded couple is finally ready to ditch their tiny basement apartment, after all their family just did get bigger by three. They recently just had two twin boys and adopted a stray dog that hung around them at the park.

They have little money as they work as a bartender and an elementary school teacher. They just bought this tiny little home with a small reno in mind to make it theirs but didn't know where to start. They called in a good friend of theirs and this was the result.

It always surprises me that people can come up with so many different and beautiful ideas even though they're working with the same space. It's incredible.

This is my attempt at it.
This is the home of the Tolkien's (yes that's the author of The Hobbit and LotR series and his wife). They've recently gotten married and didn't have a lot of money to spend when buying their new house, the situation was made even worse when John was offered a teaching position at Oxford. With their small amount of funds they were able to buy a small cottage like house. The ivy was eating away the mortar, the garden was all self seeded and running a bit wild and it wasn't big enough for them to raise a family. But it was theirs, the only way to go now was up. (for anyone who follows my history town project, this isn't their actual house in the town, that's still being worked on)

The sickeningly sweet couple;

Living area, John's a technophobe so no TV for this family. If you're wondering what the pictures are above the fireplace, well they're portraits of Frodo, Sam and Gandalf;

Newlyweds Bryce & Dylan Savage are both superstars in their own right. However, life in fast paced Bridgeport can quickly get to be over the top. So to get back down to earth (and Bryce's roots), they've recently built a sweet little love nest on the waters of Lucky Palms. Away from the fans & paparazzi, this "it couple" can leave the glitz & glam of the red carpet behind.
