This is a remake/rebuild of a house that EAxis gave us with the Freetime EP - it (the original) can be found in the Lots and Houses Bin. The original house is just a big square block with a huge auto-roof mess, IMHO. I couldn't believe the fugliness when I first saw this place. I hope I have helped it somewhat - yet retained a bit of it's Maxis flavor - and that now it can be a useful residence for your simmies. Check out the pictures below to compare, and see what all I changed:






Please scroll through all the pictures above to see all this house has to offer.

This lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Invisible smoke alarms are under the range hood in the kitchen and at the grill outside, the phone is on the desk by the bedrooms, and the burglar alarm is by the front door. I added a bit more furniture than Maxis originally gave us with this house - but, decorations are still at a minimum. Please personalize it to meet your sims whims.

Let's go house-hunting with the Gavigans...



This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The package has been cleaned with both Mootilda's Clean Installer and Chris Hatch's Lot Compressor (read about it HERE ) and then double checked with SimPE - it's as squeaky as they come!


Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Backless Tub/Shower and Cheap Shower by HL @ MTS2
Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I used wallpapers and floors from this set.


FYI: Standard mods/programs I use whilst building/photo-ing/prepping a TS2 lot for upload...
- Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
- Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
- Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
- Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
- BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
- FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.



Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $58,787

- InvisibleSmokeAlarm by pfish @ MTS2

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.
