Hi Everybody!

Here is another house (after many hesitations).During the hot summer days I needed some fresh air and made an absolutly non realistic aristocratic Datcha,just for an old russian touch.
My starting point was : “Doctor Zhivago”.I am in love with this old romantic movie,with its wonderful half abandoned datcha.I tried my hand at adapting the roofing.Then my “work” was very limited because I didn’t want to use lots of custom content.

Its a big lot:6x5.Very expensive .Approximately 300000 simoleons.

- Ground floor: Entry and Staircase.Bathroom.Kitchen.Formal Diningroom.Livingroom. Swimming Pool in the blue Pavillon.
- First floor: Spacious area just upstairs.Library/Study room.Master Bedroom.Another Bedroom.Bathroom.
- Top floor: Unfurnished.I needed it because of the roofing.You can decorate it if its not too challenging for your computer.
--------------------
In order to install this lot you need all expansion packs (Sorry.They are all in my game).
--------------------
CUSTOM CONTENT
1) Maybe you’ll need Numenor’s “Unleveled Walls”.I am sure that I used them during several steps of this “work”.THANK YOU,Numenor.This Must Have is here:

2) I made:
*Some Recolors :

- Roof and Fences.With a RANDOM GUID .Please,download the file
“Recolors” .It will be useful if you have any problem.
- Gate.
- Columns.
- Window.
- A Staircase and some Russian Icons for the Inside decoration.

*Some Walls,Floors and Groundcovers.(Some groundcovers were finally not needed,but its impossible to remove groundcovers from a lot,otherwise the game would crash.Sorry again!)
Hope I didn’t forget anything. And Thanks to all wonderful Sims-Teachers who provided precious tutorials.

Not sure if you’ll like this strange house.Maybe some of you with “strange taste”....Thanks for reading this looong thread!
And finally: Happy Simming! Hélène
