1920's Vintage Home Design ~ 1-click Foundation Dutch Colonial, 33rd in the Series

24 Thanks  Thanks     6 Favourited
The thirty-third house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is a two bedroom Dutch Colonial, built on a 1-click Foundation (Thank YOU, Moo!) with Honeywell's beautiful Bespoke Build Set. As the brochure states: it has "5 Rooms, Bath, and Dressing Room", and the builder DID keep the original color scheme - though not because it was "exceptionally good." But, because it was pretty basic and I felt it would appeal to a greater audience than say... changing it to purple siding.
(Besides, I have one in purple siding coming up soon one of those is enough.)

This lot has been adjusted with Mootilda's GridAdjuster to have a cute little 1-click foundation. AND it has a basement (a regular dug-out basement, not a no-slope/page-down-to-the-Nether basement.) It is also Big Dog approved (Thanks to Shasta and Huge Lunatic.)


I was able to build this house close to the original plan. TS2 won't let me tuck closets under the eaves in the upstairs corners. And, I had to adjust the door to the basement stairs - it is in the dining room corner - because TS2 won't allow a door to open directly onto the stairs (it needs a 1T threshold.) I really like the porch though! And there is plenty of room upstairs to reconfigure it into 3 bedrooms (That's what I'd do, if I lived here in RL!)




Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, nightstand with alarm clock, three single closets, a loveseat, and the dining table. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the Living Room. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and fireplace have smoke alarms.


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 and over the fireplace in the living room. 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.
- Maxoid Archive Items - Missink Point Pyramid Topiary
- Deck Stairs - Oak Bleached by Piggi @ MTS2 - at least, I think that's a link to the stair recolor? I know the file name is "DeckStairs-OakBleached" (but it could've been renamed at some point?) There is no name/identifier in the pkg file, but they match the fence/rail perfectly and it's by Piggi. If this is not the right stair color - and you really want the exact one I used - let me know and I will include it as an extra file. Sorry, I usually don't use unidentifiable recolors in my uploads. This one snuck in on me

...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: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $46,497
