Cottonmouth is my contribution to Sanshi Suimei, a Japanese-themed neighborhood. The house was built for O-Ren Ishii and her sim family.  My approach to this build was imagining what O-Ren Ishii would do if she were a sim, so some authenticity had to be sacrificed. Although I definitely did try to include a lot of authentic elements in the home that are feasible for sims, such as a lush courtyard with an arched bridge over a koi pond, tatami flooring in the bedrooms, and lots of wood textures. I decided not to use pagoda roofing because I usually associate that with more grander buildings such as palaces, temples, etc.

I typically don’t like using too many store items in my builds, but since this is a neighborhood specific house and most people who will download the neighborhood would probably have these sets, I decided to use the Zen Again set and the Asian Fusion set quite liberally. If you have these 2 sets, you’re pretty much covered. I also utilized items that came free from the store if you registered World Adventures, the free set from Lunar New Year’s, and the desk from the free Weba Yafoo set.

I spent quite a bit of time on this lot. I hope everyone likes!

Built by Anjubee for the Ishii family in Sanshi Suimei. 4 Bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, this traditional Japanese home has been simified with luxury modern comforts. At 186k simoleans, this house also features lush courtyard landscaping, a zen garden, a modern kitchen, tatami flooring in all the bedrooms, and a basement with a dojo, office, utility room.

Besides a few custom patterns, no other CC was used.
