Orchid Starter

Orchid Starter is a one bedroom, one bath starter home inspired by Japan. It was built for Pronterus’s Starter Showoff Challenge


Challenge & Rules:

Lillian Fritzer has always had wanderlust. After backpacking around the world, she has decided to settle down in one place, but she wants a home that can remind her of one of the places she’s been to. She has given you a list of her most favorite places around the world, and her house should look like it came from that place. She only has 18,500 simoleons for the house since she spent most of her money traveling. Lillian requires at least one computer so that she can archive her adventures around the globe.
You are tasked to create a starter that is based off one of these places chosen by Lillian:
>Japan
>Germany
>The Philippines
>Brazil
>South Africa
Challenge Specific Rules:
>Lot size: 20×15

>Budget: 18,500
>Deadline: July 6, 2016 (12:00 GMT+8)
