This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These cabinets match my "Cabinet with Rangehood" and all of them match the Maxis "Krampft Counter".

The long, plain cabinet is cloned from an original Maxis painting.
The Short, over-fridge cabinet is cloned from the smoke alarm
(so it works like one!) It only fits over the Economy Fridge
(until I get around to making a retro Fridge.. wink wink)

Both should work with or without Expansions, and are located
in Appliances/misc.

I am also including a Krampf Counter recolor in black to match.

I have a bunch of recolors on the way (though not tonight, I gotta go to bed! LOL!) So watch for them in the next day or so...

Both Cabinets: Polys - 139, Vertices - 291

Stove and Rangehood are available:

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

At last--the one element Maxis left out that makes a sim-house like a real house: overhead cabinets!

The two following files caused my houses not to load after I placed them in the lot:


I'm not sure what caused the error, but after I removed these two specific files, the houses loaded again. Figured I'd let you know.

Great work, though. I don't see why Maxis didn't include overhead cabinets to begin with.
