Hi all! :) I saw Mikes Hobby Hole house, and I was just wondering if there is a tutorial on how it's done? I would really like to try making one. Thanks so much...

Where can people find that lot? What does it look like?

Hi again, well the person who did this lot is MikeInside. I saw it in one of his tutorals when I was browsing. I lost that page though and now can't find it. However, it looked like a hobbit house on Lord of the Rings. You know, a basement basicly that has a door that leads to the lot's yard. I could do the basement part by following a tutoral here, but it's the roof I can't figure out. It looks like part of the lawn, with grass on top. So it looks like a door on the side of a grassy knowl/ hill. It's really cool! I wish I could find that lot again.

I'm guessing the roof is done as a "flat" roof - that is, a roof made of floor tiles rather than the actual roofing tools. You'd need a grass/dirt textured floor tile plus liberal use of the constrainfloorelevation cheat, maybe do the "house in a hillside" technique...
There's all manner of tutorials on the techniques Mike has used to build his houses, found on his site: http://mikeinside.modthesims2.com/tutorials.html

i figured it out!
build a basement, and if you want tha roof to look like the lawn you get a flat roof and cover it with a floor tile that looks like the ground.
i'm not sure if it came with sims 2 seasons or the normal game but have a look.
it will be in the misc section of flooring ( the 3 circles in the bottom right corner)
hope i helped!!
:D :D :D :D

if weather or season is a concern, a plain tiled compressed/dummy level under the unflat/curved tiled roof may be helpful.
