Greetings, Simmers!

Sears and Roebuck published catalogues of kit homes that you could purchase and build from 1908 to 1940. These homes were incredibly well-built and affordable... ranging in price from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. If you look around your home town today, you might be surprised to see how many survive today. As I have gone through the floor plans, the only drawback to many of the earlier houses was the lack of bathrooms.... Remember.... "Indoor plumbing...it's gonna' be big!"

Without further ado, the list of Custom Content.... and the Talented Creators who are truly responsible for this house.... I am dividing this out according to creator to make the treasure hunt easier... These items are not included with the download.

Many thanks to these incredibly talented people!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.
