Swanson House was created and playtested during the 10 kid challenge. Its a 3x3 lot for $121K. There is room for your career and aspiration rewards (basement for energizers and mechanical looking rewards and left side of the house for obstacle course/punching bag/golf rewards). Tables near skilling items for your thinking caps. Space for 6 in twin beds, space for 2 in cribs, and 1 double bed. All landscaping requiring gardening is accessible and can be completed by the gardener by early afternoon. There is a permanent "birthday cake table" in the dining room near the basment stairs. Kids come home from school and dump their homework back there too. The right side of the house, back near the pond, would make a lovely location for a wedding arch.

No custom content. No family. No hacks. Cleaned with Clean Installer prior to packaging.

Lot is very playable for even a very large family. One of my pet peeves is to download a beautiful house then find it isn't very playable. This one is. I playtested it for weeks doing my 10 kid challenge. If I can raise 10 kids there, so can you!

You'll have to add phones. I was having trouble with the packaged lot if I left the phones in.

Please rate if you have time.

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

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install.

this hasnt as much to do with your house as it has with your comment of ..ehrm..breeding 10 kids, simply because im having a huge problem and i dont know where to post about it either so i was wondering if you or someone else has had the same problem. The problem is this; When having more than 1 kid in the house in the same age, only one receives homework, if having kids of different ages (teen/kid) then only the teen comes home normally with homework, the kid just shows up in the house then displaying that he/she has lost a grade for missing school... incredibly annoying, not to say shattering, ive had to move teens out to live with relatives for their siblings not to be taken by social-monster, a.k.a social-worker. Im gonna find some other place to post as well later on, but for now, has anyone else experienced this?

I've already got this beautiful home sitting safely in my house bin, waiting for my next Family sim to use it. :-D (Sadly, it'll probably have to wait for the next generation, as all of this generation are already in their new homes. *sigh*) Thank you for sharing your gorgeous work, Gethane!

I have one of her other houses that I use in-game that I simply adore!! I can't wait to move someone into this one!

Oh wow this house looks amazing. Now that Jimmy Phoenix and his new wife are expecting the fourth set of twins, I was in the market for finding them a better house. This looks like the perfect home for them. Thanks for sharing

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate all the feedback. I'm working on another house now on a smaller lot.
