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.
Well here is part two of my siding construction project.. This part contains 10 NEW meshes ...It includes the following items : 1 24 foot ladder laying on the ground , 1 24 foot ladder able to be placed against walls , 1 28 foot ladder on the ground , 1 28 foot ladder able to be placed against walls , 1 sawhorse (previously released as a teaser) please notice the great detail in this item , 2 boxes of siding for placement on the sawhorse ..You can use box 1 to have a total of 3 boxes of siding on the sawhorse , 1 empty coilstock box laying on the ground , 1 coilstock box standing upright and 1 roll of coil stock upright ..The coil stock can be placed on the ground by itself or can also be placed INSIDE the upright coilstock box with of course the moveObjects cheat enabled ....In order to place the siding boxes on top of the sawhorses you will also need to use the moveObjects cheat ...Once again this is only PART of the complete package i have created and more will be on the way as i finish items ....Please enjoy these objects and be sure to leave a thanks and a comment ...

Here are some screenshots of all the items in this part :

The construstion gods are happy (especially the vinyl siding one)
I just want to state that this stuff is awesome. I used to work doing residential construction, and now I work at a warehouse this distributes building materials. Primarily siding, actually. So, allow me to state that this is so true to life and properly detailed that it is almost disturbing. You even have your brands right with the Simteed Vinyl. I am just blown away. Tell me please that there is a 24' 2 man alum. plank for the pump jack system coming soon... Lol. Seriously though, cant wait to see the next set! Good Work!

I just love the ladders! I must just make sure they do not walk under them - a satellite might fall out of orbit and land on their head!!!

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

I will be the first to tell you there are going to be 20 different aluminum planks for use on the pump jacks and for placement on the ground .... They will be in sizes ranging from a 12 ' model all the way up to the MONSTER 30 ' ....

I will also be making a few step ladders and 2 more versions of the 24 and 28 to be able to be placed against the pump jacks ...I might also even make some extended versions too .....

The next part of this set will more than likely contain all the planks or picks ...If i cant get the textures right i am just going to get rid of the brand name on the side of the planks and texture them plain , but i wanted them to all say Alum-A-Sim as alum-a-plank is a well known brand of picks in the construction industry ....

Hey tigmomx4, I thought I'd let you know I downloaded the set but I could not find the "2 boxes of siding for placement on the sawhorse" in my game any where.. what was it cloned from? and where would it be placed under in game?

I do believe the boxes of siding were cloned from something decorative so they should be found under decorative ....I think it was the vase i used so look under plants in decorative ....im downstairs and the computer with the sims is upstairs so i will check for sure later and if you have not found them i will update you !!
