Sears, Roebuck, & Co. Modern Homes - Ca. 1908 1 1/2 Story Farmhouse
Uploaded 23rd Aug 2009 at 11:59 PM · Updated 24th Aug 2009 at 1:31 AM by tregnier2795
This house was built using floor plans and diagrams from the 1908 Sears, Roebuck, & Co. Catalogue. The house could have been built, painted, and made ready for an occupant for a mere $1,700 in 1908.
This house is a 1 & 1/2 story structure. 1 & 1/2 stories means that the first floor is constructed with walls at full height. The second floor is built at approx. 3/4 or 1/2 that height, after which the roof is set on those walls, creating lower, partially sloped ceilings in the upper part.
This was achieved with the "constrain floor elevation" cheat. The only downside is that the door frames and windows rise above the actual walls, causing the gables to appear in the top of the second story windows from the exterior. The rooms are still fully usable.
This house was, most likely, intended as a farmhouse of some kind, given the many bedrooms. The area behind the parlor is a bedroom, as well, but could be converted to a library or something. The bathroom on the upstairs was a bedroom, too, putting the original count at 6 bedrooms.
Aside from alterations to make the floor plan easier, the only real change from the original was the bay in the sitting room.
The house is fully furnished, mostly using items from the Rustic/Country collection.
The yard is mostly lawn, with trees and shrubbery out front and along the street-facing sides. There is a small fenced in garden in the rear of the house.

Welcome to my page. I use the Sims as a architectural simulator, re-creating buildings as well as designing my own.
I build various styles of home, particularly those popular in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries, as accurately as possible with the game's various tools, for my own enjoyment, as well as the intent of sharing them with others.
