Modest 4B Ranch
MidCentury Design V11396
2-Step Foundation

4 bedrooms - 3.5 bathrooms - garage
- semi-furnished - large yard - pet friendly -

~~~ 1 CC (Mia's chimneyless Maxis fireplace) ~~~

The floor plan comes from this book: One-Story Homes, published by HomePlanners, Inc in 1991
An on-line archive of the plan is HERE.

This house was built as part of a Tutorial (and then got lost on my desktop, and not published until now!)

Please enjoy touring the rest of this design by scrolling through the above pictures.

This house is semi-furnished. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove, fireplace, and grill have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. There are two telephones; one on each level.

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 only one vehicle - in the garage. The driveway is shortened, so cars will teleport to the road.

This is a pet-ready build. Some pet items are included, and there is plenty of room to add more.

Definitely used but NOT included:
Get these items if you want the house to look exactly as shown in the pictures.
- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (follow the link and it's the second link in the top post - extracted 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.)
- HugeLunatic's Backless tub/shower

You will also need to get:
- Simler90's Stair Mods for the 2-Step foundation to work for large dogs (IF you want to allow large doggies inside!)
- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2
Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button below to see how I did it

(NOTE: If you decide NOT to use Numenor's Wall #90, you will have 2 sections of wonky/crooked walls where the garage joins the main house. This will not hurt your game, it just looks ugly. It is completely avoidable by using Numenor's Unlevel Wall.)

Custom Content Included
- Mia86's Chimneyless Maxis Colonial Fireplace.

Lot Size (Grid & Lot Adjusted): 3X3
Lot Price (semi-furnished): $94,667

Thank you Mootilda - for the awesome Lot Adjuster and Grid Adjuster used to make this lot.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary, nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
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
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!

NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)
