1920's Vintage Home Design ~ 1-click Foundation English Cottage, 60th in the Series

35 Thanks  Thanks     6 Favourited
The sixtieth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is the "Commodore," with "6 Rooms, Bath and Nook." The brochure tells us it is "A stucco home of the English type that would add beauty to the choicest suburbs... The room arrangement is superb, the dining room and living room being two distinct units." It's six rooms include three bedrooms (one of which is really tiny - barely big enough for a single bed! I wonder if it is meant for a maid or nanny?) Then there is the large living and dining rooms, and the kitchen - with it's built-in dining nook/booth. This is an 'L'-shaped house and would look really nice on a corner lot (IMHO) Although it is listed as a 3B, I think it is more suited to a small family - a couple with one child.

As with all the other homes in this series, I left the basement empty - so you can finish it however you need to... I would suggest adding another bathroom down there, as sims always need more bathrooms. The garage is built with extra space as well; and the yard is large.

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.)

Please take a tour through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, two nightstands (one with an alarm clock,) dining booth, beverage bar, and dining table. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the vestibule. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and fireplace have smoke alarms.

I hope you have a family that will enjoy living here!

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! .

The garage is turned sideways - so, there are no arrival/departure animations for the cars; cars will teleport from the garage to the road. There is parking available for two vehicles: one in the garage, and one on the driveway near the road.

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.
- Animation file for the Ladder by Marvine @ MTS2
- M&G Second Empire Add Ons - you need the ArchDuke 2T Door by Shakeshaft @ TSR

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

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): $52,301
