Laguna Beach primeres on August 16th on MTV @ 10 p.m. eastern time! I figured that it was appropriate to release this house now, two weeks in advance, so by the time that the show rolls around, you can look in envy at Lauren and Breanna Conrad's Mediterranean Oasis, and brag to yourself, that your wealthy sims get to live in it! Have fun with it, and please remember to comment! Pics Included, and other notes about the house the the bottom!

5x6 Lot
Cost: 139,552 Simoleons

The only thing that I could absolutely not get to work, was being able to have a garage that your sims could pull their vehicle into. The garage doors are there, and there are invisible driveways so that you can park your cars/trucks in front of the garage, but the garage doors are basically there to make the house look nice. Also, I forgot to add a tree, right where the steps begin to go downhill on the right side of the house. There should be a tree there.

I want to give a special thanks to Jonesi and Nengi! They helped me so much with figuring out the elevation part of the house, so that building this home was even possible, but this home has taken a lot of time and effort to build. I have slaved over the computer for a month a bit at a time, to finally finish a wonderful product. I hope you all enjoy! Comments Welcome!

Your link to the invisble driveway isn't working. Oh and, I didn't think you could upload meshes from Sims2luxe, at least that's what it says in their information section. You can upload recolors but not their meshes. Anyway, this is a great looking house. I deleted the last message cuz I thought I posted in the wrong section, lol, but I didn't.

All my creations can now be found HERE.
