Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A good deal smaller than most of the lots I usually upload (perhaps this warmer weather calls for increased restraint!) I received a request from someone to create something that wasn't a great gaudy behemoth but could still satisfy a small family (and look good doing it.) The year is a bit simplistic, but I figure whoever wants their dream garden can create it themselves. =] It includes three bedrooms, two baths, formal living and dining rooms, library and pool, and a driveway to accomodate two vehicles. Down-sizing doesn't have to mean down-grading!

Absolutely stunning! Your houses are always so impressive--and this one especially. It's beautiful, it's realistic, and it looks very playable.

Great job!! :D

I love it!

Could you tell me how you made the roof? It looks like a Mansard roof with a steeper slope. However, I can 't do this in the game. The Mansard roof is always 45 degrees, no matter what I set the cheat at.
