The fiftieth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is the single story "Cheney," a two bedroom bungalow, with a full basement and detached garage. This house is built on a partial 1-click foundation - it has one step up to the front door, but the rest of the house has a regular foundation. The basement stairs are interesting too - they 'wrap around' the back corner of the house. The stairway is completely covered, but separate from the rest of the house. So the basement could be used as a completely separate living quarters for someone... hmmm, it's pretty dark down there too. Cheney/Chaney... didn't Lon Chaney (Sr or Jr) play Dracula?

This is a combination of both plans for this house. I used the option with a basement (so no screen porch,) but then added the dining booth to the kitchen. It seemed too crowded combining the living and dining rooms.

This not the least expensive house in this series (that would be House #34, at $26K) but it is close! This one comes in at just over $27K. I hope you have a family that will enjoy this house

This lot has been adjusted with Mootilda's GridAdjuster to have a partial 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.)

I have to point out the pretty pink bathroom (below.) Isn't it great! It is an homage to my great grandmother... her teeny tiny bathroom was shocking pink everything. Tile, porcelain, towels... even the toiletpaper, was violently pink. This is a much gentler pink; but it is still in memory of her. I couldn't resist.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, a nightstand with an alarm clock, two closets, and a dining booth. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located in the living room. The front door is burglar alarmed. The stove has a smoke alarm.

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.

There is parking for two vehicles; one in the garage, and one on the driveway.

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.
- Shiftable Support - MASTER by mustluvcatz (MLC) @ MTS2 - ...without this the roof supports will flash blue.
- Paneled Doors MASTER (...apparently, I used every part of this set EXCEPT the master - sorry!) by Raynuss @ SFS - without it the doors and windows will flash blue!

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

Custom Content Included:
- Simple Passage Modular by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!
- SHIFTABLE Roof Support - SLAVE by mustluvcatz (MLC) @ MTS2
- Paneled Doors and Windows Colonnade Set by Raynuss (RDN) @ SFS

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): $27,316
