The fifty-third house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is the "Chipley." The brochure says, "A small bungalow of proven popularity especially designed for small families." By small family they must mean a childless couple - because there is only one bedroom. (Of course, there is a huge open basement that you can partition into rooms however you need to for your sim family.)

If you look at the plan below, you'll see what is labeled as a 'Dressing Room' on the front left corner of the plan... It is supposed to store a disappearing bed, that swings out into the living room, for sleeping on every night. I don't know about you, but that just seems awful tiresome to me - to have to haul that bed out every night. Using it a couple nights a year for a guest would be OK, but every night? Too much! Therefore, this is a ONE bedroom house. I suppose you could use this room as a small bedroom - it is 2 X 4 tiles, so a single bed would fit in there, but not with much else. I will probably move the wall over one tile (making the room 3 X 4) in my permanent copy, making it a small single bedroom. OR, if an elderly couple moves in, maybe it will become an office? I hope you can figure out a use for it.

The rest of the house has several amenities - like the bedroom has a built-in closet, the bathroom has both a shower and a tub, there is a bar in the dining room, and the kitchen is fully equipped with both a dishwasher and a trash compactor. The garage also has extra space for a "workshop" - robot station, toy bench, potter's wheel, or gardening equipment. I hope you have a "small" sim family that will enjoy living here






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

NOTE: Maybe you could also spruce up the curb appeal with some CC Gingerbread Trim? I tried really hard not to have CC in this build - and I only used a few pieces! But, Gingerbread would really look much nicer around those front eaves


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 one vehicle in the garage.


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.
- Nook Folly MASTER by Buggy Booz - without this the front brick columns will flash blue!

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


Custom Content Included:
- Niche Extra Encasement V3 by Buggy Booz now @ SFS
- Walnut Door 1on2T by Leesester/LeeFish @ MTS2
- Modular Seasons Windows & Flowerboxes by pbox @ 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): $35,264
