I just spent the past four days on a house for one of my families. It's not quite finished (but then, they're never quite finished, are they), but done enough for them to live in.

I was looking at it last night and thinking, "Wow...four days to build", and it got me wondering if this was normal or if I was just a freak, as I am in most other things.

I spend anywhere from 30 mins to an 1 1/2 hours. It really depends on the style I am going for & if I add anything or am leaving it empty to upload.

LOL...the least amount of time I've ever spent on a house was something like five hours. It was one of my "just toss it together" places.

On average, I spend around 2 or 3 days on a single house. Sometimes as a little as a day, if I'm working on a starter.

There was one time though I spent about two weeks on one, and ended up junking it afterwards. Hah.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one.

I usually spend about 3-4 hours...building, decorating etc...and then I'm never happy with the results, cause I start thinking to myself it could always be bigger or I need more room...the next thing you know...I'm hitting the un-do button....back to the drawing board:grin:

During the week I only get to play about an hour at a time per day, so sometimes it will take me a week to build a house! :lol: But I've been known to spend a weekend building a house. I stop once every hour or two and make my boyfriend marvel and the newly completed rooms... ahh, ... yeah you're not the only one. And no, the houses are never finished! Gameplay changes a lot of things (>_<) !

It's not uncommon for me to put up a "house" in 2 minutes or less.  2x3 room for the bathroom and let them live outside until I know what I want.  :grin:

When I actually build a house though, it will take a couple hours just for foundation, walls and some rough rooms.  I usually don't bother to decorate it until after I've played a bit to see if the house is usable and what the wants are of the inhabitants.  I tend to start small, and keep it expandable up and out.

I once spent a good couple of hours on a house, with breaks in between hehe. Its the only house I have ever made. I loved it in the end, it looked great Smiley
I tend to get bored decorating, I find myself just putting anything in so I can get it done hehe.

Mostly when I start a new house, I build the base idea of the house.
Then I move a family in and while playing with that family I get more idea's.
Then I build those idea's and have the sims test them.

For me building a house up while playing it with a family, makes it more fun.
And this way I can also test the house with the sims in it.
Objects that can't be reached by a sims can then be replaced or removed.

Needless to say, my sims like the free money they get while I build lol.
