So the June Challenge was Maxis Makeover. I can only do lots, so I picked one at random and thought I'd do that.

I don't use Maxis houses, because they tend to be pretty terrible, so I'd never even looked at this one but it really was terrible; ugly, dark, a terrible layout, vast rooms and as for the roof!

I tried to stick to what was realistic when doing the refurb. Off came the roof, of course, and I had to completely change the layout, but the foot print is virtually unchanged (I pulled the back wall in, but I left the foundations to extend the terrace. Lots of new windows, to get some light in there. My Sims painted the foundations white and clad the building in clapboarding.

Anyway, the house has a study, kitchen-dining room, living room, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms

Hope you enjoy!

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
