Note: I've added a BaseGame version of this house. Many (decorative) things have changed but the floor plan has not. The BaseGame version is unfurnished. For these reasons, the house has lost a lot of its original charm. Download the BaseGame version only if you can't get the full version. -Thanks

Simspiration Studios Presents: "Papaya Dreams"

After seeing far to many houses claiming to be 'starters' but not being furnished enough to actually start, I decided to make a couple myself. Its actually harder than it looks till you get the hang of it. All of the houses in this set make very good vacation homes as well as regular starter homes. These houses also look really good in the neighborhood that I created for them. :: hint-hint :: Get that here.

I've named the set the "Nana Series" because almost all the houses have a Nana Tree in the yard. Many features are the same throughout the houses. They all have the same outside wall covering, same outdoor tile, same driveway waiting for a car, same wood floor, and same bathroom tile. Less noticeable, they all have the cut stump trim around the outdoor pathways and flower beds, same kitchen sink, and similar bathrooms. That being said, each house is very different from the rest! They each have their own color scheme, floorplan, and fun features!

This house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house's color is rose. This house is perfect for the quickly growing family. One of the second bedrooms is already furnished as a nursery.

Custom Content Used: No CC! Maxis Only!
Pictured are my own recolors of Maxis objects, however, they did not get packaged with the lot, sorries!

Make sure you get the other 9 starters in the series! Banana Escape, Blue Lagoon, Patio Villa, Calm Serenity, Nutmeg Memories, Seabreeze Island, Cinnamon Retreat, Seashell Cove, and Licorice Daze!


P.S. I love reading comments! Leave me a couple?

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • 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. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

I downloaded your 'Sand Simolean Point' Neighborhood now I'm downloading one of your houses for it. Thanks! Btw, I'm very pleased with Sand Simolean Point. :-).

I'm in the process of downloading all of these houses and will then download the neighborhood you created for them. I can't thank you enough for these! I too agree that starters that don't have everything you need to start are frustrating. Thank you again a million times!

Wonderful house, and not the normal boring shape for most starters either. I love it. Thanks a bunch!

I really like the consistent color scheme and how you included extra skilling items for adults and a toddler!

This series of houses is one of my favorites ever. I always come back to download after silly things like my husband giving my old computer to my daughter and her deleting all sims related files before I could check the backup file he made, but didn't actually have anything useful in it. Thank you for your creations over the years.
