Entrance

Near the entrance is a small office where the deans have (limited) office hours during the week. This way they’re close by for students who have urgent questions.

Library

The student residence also has a library, spread out over all three floors. But that sounds bigger than it actually is.

Wash room

A wash room for the students who don’t bring their laundry home to mum.

Common room and kitchen

The common room has a seating area, a tv, a pool table, a kitchen with two fridges, and tables where the students can eat their meals. They have to prepare these themselves though!

Corridors

The corridors are nothing special, but I love the feel of them. On each floor there are four doors leading to four bedrooms which are designed to each be shared by two students.

Room 1

Room 1 currently houses Chris and James. Both music students, they moved the furniture around to make room for their instruments.
The first two pictures show Chris’ side of the room, the next two show James’ side.

Room 2

Room 2 currently sleeps Mia and Nina. The bed with purple bedding is Mia’s and the pink is Nina’s. Room 2 - Mia-Nina

Room 3

Room 3 is home to Daniel and Seth. Their room needed to also have space for Dan’s drums, which they have created. The pictures above their beds show who sleeps where. ūüôā

Room 4

Harry and Narai are the current occupants of room 4. They were already roommates in their old student home in Honeycomb Valley and have grown accustomed to sharing with one another. They placed their desks together to create a bigger workplace.
Photography fanatic Harry put pictures over his bed which he took himself, while geeky Narai went for posters to show his love of vintage videogames.

Room 5

One floor up, we find room 5. Best friends Jill and Sarah share this room. They went all out trying to make it homely, adding plants, cushions and lots of pictures. Including one of them together as kids, as can be seen on the bookcase in picture 4. The bed underneath the Titanic poster is Jill’s. Although that might be clear seeing how Sarah obviously put a picture of her and Seth over her bed.

Room 6 and 7

Room 6 and 7 are currently unoccupied and show how the student rooms look before students put their own stamp on it. Each room holds two beds with blue (university colour) blankets, two bookcases, two desks and chairs and two wardrobes. Students are allowed to move furniture around as they please and to add what they like, but they are not allowed to dispose of furniture already in the room. Pictures can be hung on the walls using no screw picture hanging strips, which the university can provide for a fee.
The images below are of room 7, but room 6 is similar.

Basic bedroom (room 7)

Room 8

Room 8 is currently the place where Anna and Suzan will spend their student years. They used one bookcase for books and the other for shoes. Anna’s bed is pictured on teh first picture below and Suzan’s on the third.

Room 8 - Anna-Suzan

Shared bathrooms

There’s one bathroom between two bedrooms, which the students staying in those bedrooms share. In each bathroom there are two toilet cubicles and two showers. So it could well be that you have to wait your turn in the morning. Students are required to keep their bathrooms (and the rest of the house for that matter) clean themselves.

The Greenery

Screenshot-64What is it?
Honeycomb Valley’s green, eco friendly district. No cars are allowed. There are¬†three¬†residential lots here and four community lots. Each lot serves an eco friendly purpose.

The Entrance

At the entrance of The Greenery, there’s a creek. Two bridges go over it, but these aren’t wide enough for vehicles. This way it is ensured no cars enter The Greenery.

Isa and Ethan’s room

Since Ethan and Isa are less than a year apart in age, and get along fine, their parents saw no harm in them sharing a room. Isa disagrees, but mostly because she wanted a pink room. She still got some pink though…

Morgan just realised that wall above the sink needs a poster or a picture of some sort…
Behind that door is an empty room which Morgan will turn into a nursery.

The Beehive. A name very fitting for a school in Honeycomb Valley. A beehive, after all, is a place where little bees live and are taught all a bee needs to know. The same thing has happened at The Beehive in Honeycomb Valley for years. The school used to be located in one big building, where the kids were taught on the ground floor and the teens were taught on the upper floor. But a fresh wind is blowing at The Beehive. Headmistress Alice Foster-Knight retired in 04 and Elliot Murray was taking over. His first order of business was a new schoolbuilding. Or, actually, three new schoolbuildings; one for the Primary School, one for the Gym and one for the High School.  Come and take the tour with us!

The Primary School

At the Primary school the children from 5 to 11 years old are taught in three classes. They have one teacher for all their subjects. You can read more about the Honeycomb Valley Education System here.

The pictures below work as a gallery. Clicking the first one will open a gallery where you can easily view them all in a nice size. Also, be sure to read the captions, as those will give you more information about the school.

High School

At the High School the teens from 12 to 20 years old are taught in 3 age groups. They have a class mentor, but get lessons from specialised teachers. You can read more about the Honeycomb Valley Education System here.

The pictures below work as a gallery. Clicking the first one will open a gallery where you can easily view them all in a nice size. Also, be sure to read the captions, as those will give you more information about the school.

The Gym

Physical Education is important, so The Beehive gym is located centrally between the high school and primary school building. This way it’s at equal distance for both the teens and the children.

The Market

This is the Honeycomb Valley market. It’s not a big place, but it’s big enough for its purpose. Sims can have something to eat here, but mainly shop for bargains. That first edition of that one book you loved as a child? You might find it here! Produce fresh from the land? Get it at the market! If you love to sew and make your own clothes, you won’t find fabrics for a sharper price than here. Homegrown flowers and plants can also be bought at the market and if you don’t like your child playing with plastic pink bunnies, but would much rather see them play with handmade natural toys, created with love, then come to Sara’s stall!
The market is also the place where town events and festivals are held. For now.

Click the first picture to easily view them all in a good size!

Wildflower

The countryside of Honeycomb Valley is split up in two districts: Wildflower and Star Thistle. The area was simply too big to be one district, so it became two.
There aren’t many lots in this part of town. The Edwards family lives here in an old house that’s been in the family for a long time. It’s a very convenient place for them too, since there’s a path from their house leading right up to the church!

The Park

I didn’t like the original Sunset Valley Park. But when I took a closer look at it, I realised it wasn’t actually that bad. But the red stone, and that playground, and well, more details like those; it just wasn’t entirely Honeycomb Valley worthy. So, I didn’t demolish it, but instead just “spruced it up” a bit. Changing some things, adding some things, removing some things, recolouring some things. And adding a stage when Showtime was released. That’s how Sunset Valley Park became Honeycomb Valley Park. Enjoy the tour!

Clicking the first picture will open a stream, where you can easily view all pictures in a proper size. 

City Hall

Under the tab “Honeycomb Valley” I posted an interactive map of the town. A while ago I added a post that zoomed in on one of the districts in Honeycomb Valley: Honeybee Quarter, the downtown district. Now it’s time to start zooming in a bit more and start with my lot tours in that district. First up is City Hall, because that is obviously the heart of the town. If it looks familiar on the outside, that’s probably because I very much copied Sandy’s (from Around My Sims) City Hall. ūüėČ The interior is mine though!

City Hall is workplace to Henry, Robert, Katie, Carmen and David.
