Built from these floor plans:

I made very few changes to the original plan. The laundry room/bathroom area between the garage and kitchen is a bit different - the two rooms are swapped, and in place of a powder room there is now a full bathroom. I also reworked the bedroom closets and Master bath to better suit TS2. I hope your sims won't mind too much! .

The Gavigan's tested this lot for me - Isaiah loved the TV and computer in the 'office' (If it wasn't raining so hard, he'd have probably rather gone swimming!) Their first visitor was the garden-club lady and she was duly impressed with the gardens. I didn't stick around to see if she offered them a membership right away, but she really liked the peacock statues in front. ...Mary was too engrossed in the local newspaper to go out and talk to her. *sigh*

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. The house is fully furnished and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove, fireplaces, and grill all have a smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. The telephone is located to the left of the front door.

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.

There is parking for one vehicle in the garage. The driveway is shortened, so there are no driving animations of the car leaving/entering the lot.

NOTE: There is a lounger placed on an angle by the fireplace in the living room. It will need adjusting/moving before anysim can sit in it.

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Backless Cheap Shower and Tub/combo by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2
- ValueWoodLumber's Justa Door - REC in ALDarkWood by Michelle @ MTS2

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)

Definitely used and NOT included - you MUST go get this before installing the lot:
- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2 - used to allow the clerestory windows to work around the living/dining room. Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button down below to see how I did it

Custom Content by Me:
- IntlGlimpseOfFreedom REC Dk Brown

Custom Content Included:
- Window Intl - mid by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2
- Window Intl - Square low by SimtopiX @ MTS2
- Modern Fence - low by lirunchik @ TSR

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price (furnished): $119,649

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.
