1920's Vintage Home Design ~ 3b/1b Dutch Colonial, 29th in the Series

The twenty-ninth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is "Modernized Colonial Architecture at its best," according to the brochure. And, I've built it with Honeywell's beautiful Bespoke Build Set, just to drive the point home. It is a large house with three bedrooms, one bath, a side porch, full basement, and detached carriage house garage. "A sturdiness and generosity marks the whole appearance, nothing being cramped or confined."

The stairway is altered a bit from the original plan - I did this to minimize dead space to 3 tiles instead of 4. Silly TS2. It is most noticeable on the upstairs landing... So, to make up for it, I added a private deck to the Master Bedroom. I hope your sims won't mind

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, and dining table. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the hallway. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and both fireplaces have smoke alarms. There is parking available for two vehicles: one in the garage, and one at the start of the driveway. Because the garage is turned sideways, there are no arrival/departure animations for the cars; cars will teleport from the garage to the road.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer. Pictures were taken with Invisible Fire Alarms in place, but the lot is packaged without that mod. So, you will see the fire alarm over the range in the kitchen, the fireplace in the living room, and the fireplace in the Master bedroom. Pictures were also taken with the Invisible Driveway, but the lot is not packaged with it. I highly recommend both invisifying options! .

CC list - used but NOT included - so, GO get it:
- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2 - used to fix wonky wall issues. Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button down below to see how I did it
- Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. Many of the wallpapers used in this 1920s series come from this bundle.
- Bespoke Build Set MASTER file by Honeywell @ MTS2 - ...without this the Bespoke items will flash blue.

...and I highly recommend getting:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
If you need help installing Numenor's Unlevel Wall #90, click this info button:

I use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
I also use 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: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): $57,618
