Calling all Green Thumbed Sims and Book Lovers!

With the recent release of the new The Sims 4 Greenhouse Haven Kit, it’s time for a brand new Sims Community Challenge!

This challenge has not only been inspired by this new Kit release, but also the changing of seasons, flowers blooming, a new-found love of reading and all things cosy! Of course, putting these all together and incorporating them into The Sims 4 to create the ultimate cosy garden reading nook!

What does this The Sims 4 Challenge involve?

For this challenge, we are doing things slightly differently. Firstly, there is no giveaway for this challenge. Secondly, we want to give you more ways to make your challenge inspired build unique.

The Task

Your task will be to create a lot that is not only cosy, but also caters to Sims who love gardening and reading!

We want you to be as creative as possible with this challenge. Really think about how you can incorporate the cosy theme into gardening and reading for your Sims. You can keep it simple, make it modern, what ever theme or idea inspires you, go for it!

  • The Build must be on a 20×15 Lot
  • A 6×4 Greenhouse Building. This must be a one-story building and can’t have a basement
