Hatteras Apartments - Multi Family Housing
This is a multi family home design by Dan Tyree. I love the design of the plan and thought they would make great apartments. Overall the likeness is good, not perfect but I think fairly close. But for my first ever apartment I think I did ok. =) There were design aspects in the plan that just don't sim well, rooms that were unnecessary/useless for TS2, or would not allow for good traffic. I did have to guess on what some areas looked like, specifically the back of the building.
There is NO CC!
Admittedly this would have looked much better with some, but my goal from the beginning was to use no cc. Which is also the reason for my using all EPs. If you don't have the SPs listed you should still be able to use the lot fine, some objects will either disappear or be replaced with other EA items. I used IKEA and K&B very heavily, because they both have lower priced items and they are my favorite SPs. Each apartment is almost the same, in size and in decorations. My hats off to anyone who actually has the patience to decorate each unit differently.
The lots are rather pricey and I have no idea what influences this. I suppose it's square footage of each unit and each unit is three floors. However, each apartment has several skill building objects including an easel, a telescope, exercise equipment and bookcases. The ground floor is the garage with a single entry/exit point, the garage door. The rest of the garage is accessible from inside. The first floor is the main living area with kitchen, dining, living, exercise room and bathroom. There is also a balcony off the kitchen. The second floors has the master bedroom with attached bath, a second bedroom, a shared bath, an extra bedroom/office and a seating area for reading.
The lot would look much better with the use of Tiggy027's Modern Window Set. If you would like to use a different apartment door, then check out the Milk Bottle Apartment Door Changer by leesester. If you wish to change the wall colors, then the parts in red would be best with vertical patterns or something without a noticeable pattern, as these are the sections affected by sloped walls from using CFE. If you wish to change the doors/windows you will need to rezone to residential before doing so.
Lot Size: 5x4
Lot Price: See Above
