New Beginnings: The Harvester

The Harvester is the first in a hopeful series of starter homes based around real life floor plans. It is a little country home complete with basement and side yard, and would be great for those older Sims seeking retirement. It is completely unfurnished, and the landscape is sparse, in an attempt to keep it under $20K.

Despite its size, it is a very roomy house, and can hold a sizeable amount of furniture. Even the basement can fit a full pool table, or you can convert it into a family room, or even a guestroom!

Lot Details:
Size: 2x2
Price: $17,491
Tested: Yes

Features:
2 Bedrooms
1 Bathroom
Kitchen
Dining Room
Living Room (with Entrance Foyer)
Basement

This lot features Maxis only items, and was cleaned using Clean Installer. This lot may require the Pets EP because of the room dividers.

Please note that the ceiling tiles do not come with this lot. If you would like to have these ceiling tiles in your game too, please download them from jgwhiteus, here.

Other Homes in the New Beginnings Series:
The Clementine
The Fairstone
The Inglewood


Number of bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Unfurnished

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.

Are you talking about the bar that separates the tile from the carpet, the carpet from the kitchen wood?

If so, those room dividers came with the Pets Expansion, and can be found under Build Mode->Miscellaneous->Fences. I do believe they come in light wood, brass, silver, dark wood, and black.

And thanks, everyone, for your lovely comments!

I don't know what happened, but I crashed when I tried to enter the house (Before a family was even moved in). And...the amount of purchase for this house was in the millions...

I do have all EPs up through Pets. No other issues with any of my homes!

Cute house from your pictures, though!

Carrie, thanks for letting me know. I'll download it from MTS2 and check it. But as far as I know there are no custom objects included in this home as I did clean it with Clean Installer. And as for the house costing millions? I have no idea what happened there.

Does this happen to every house you download? Was it just this home?

I think you´ll have to update the requirements again, because "University" is also needed, as you can see on the thumb with the billiard table, which comes with that EP....

anyway, your sweet little house fits in awful nice in my game, thanks!
