Update: Some people have been having trouble installing this lot into their game. To remedy this, I have added a version edited and tested to work exclusively in basegame, thanks to AGS. The house is the same, just filtered through basegame. No mods or custom content (including store content) are included. If you had trouble getting this install, don't have Late Night, or otherwise do not want to install any custom content, please install the new version! For screenshots without the custom content, please check the comments.

1 Emily Drive - A Family Starter

Having a mansion is always a luxury, but sometimes your sims prefer a small, cozy house. This lot is only built on a 10x10 lot, but is able to sustain up to 3 sims, and provide everything they need at that!

Layout and Design
Although small, this house sports an open layout that gives plenty of room to it's ocupants. On the first floor, you will find the living area, kitchen, and dining area. The living area and upstairs hallway is designed with earthy colors and give a very cozy feeling. Seating, HDTV, fireplace, stereo, all your sims need to get the entertainment they want! The kitchen has everything you need aswell, including all the appliances needed, coffee machine and processor. The dining area has a table with 5 chairs. HOWEVER, two of these chairs are unusable, and "pushed in." This will not affect gameplay, however, because they are actually placed on OMSPs (please read custom content instructions for installation). The only problem will be ran into if you direct a sim to sit in a chair which is "pushed in." The stairs leading to the second floor have a platform. The hallway leads to the two bedrooms and bathroom. The smaller bedroom, which is set up for a teenaged or young adult male, can easily be changed to fit any resident. Bed, Desk, Computer, TV, Bookshelf and Chair all included. The master bedroom has all the essentials, a mirror, and the door to the deck, and also a second door to the bathroom. The bathroom has all the regular plumbing. One strange issue found in routing testing is that there is an animation bug when using the shower. I am yet to find a solution, but please note that THIS IS ONLY VISUAL. There is no problem created by it. You may find some special suprises hidden in this house once you take a closer look
