The thirty-sixth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is another one story Bungalow. This one is very small, with two bedrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen, and a bathroom... buuut, the bathroom is too small to have a sink. *cringe* I gotta wash my hands! *shudder* So, I built an extra full bathroom in the basement *Whew*! Plus, besides the basement - with it's spare bathroom, it has a detached garage with extra workshop space, and a nice tidy back yard. The brochure informs us, "Economy of space and material was used in planning this home, to enable us to offer it at an attractively low price."

Did I mention it is purple? ...apparently there was a clearance sale on purple siding and interior paint Though not in the 'starter' price range, it is priced very economically at $30K.

This lot has been adjusted with Mootilda's GridAdjuster to have a cute little 2-click foundation (Sadly though, that also means Big Dogs can't find a way inside. Little dogs and cats should be fine.) AND it has a basement (a regular dug-out basement, not a no-slope/page-down-to-the-Nether basement.) OH! and, it uses Honeywell's beautiful Bespoke Build Set.

This is the last of the 'Design' houses in this series. The rest of the houses are what I call the 'Signature' houses - they all have proper names for the floor plans. I saved most of them for last because they seemed to be a bit better designed (IMHO) and many of them are more challenging to build. A few have already been uploaded (the Condor, Carroll, Circyl, Calvin, and Cambridge) If you've been following along on this series - the best is yet to come! LOL! I love reading your comments, leave me a few?

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a single bed, a nightstand with an alarm clock, and a dining set. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the living room. The front door is burglar alarmed. The stove 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 stove 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.
- Whitewood REC of SSN Stormproof Door by Michelle @ MTS
- Bespoke Build Set MASTER file by Honeywell @ MTS2 - ...without this the Bespoke items will flash blue.
- Nook Folly MASTER by Buggy Booz
- You also need BB_NICHE-TrappingPaintedWallsDarkTeal-pikkon2012 a REC by pikkonsimming. But, the link isn't working right now. So, I'm including this recolor as an extra file to DL - without it the BB Niche's items (front archway) 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: 2x2
Lot Price (furnished): $30,018
