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: "Seabreeze Island"

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 two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house's color is mint.

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, Papaya Dreams, Cinnamon Retreat, Seashell Cove, and Licorice Daze!


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

These houses are fantastic! I didn't come across this series until today and liked several of them. In fact, I downloaded a few of them for my small families. Keep up the great work!

No, sorry, I always forget lights. I tend to play with lighting effects off, slows down my laptop too much. This house is furnished with enough extra stuff that you could buy a couple overhead lights instead.

This is a huge house, considering how cheap it is! It just goes to show how far your money will go in SimNation. With houses like your series, Phaenoh, I confidently predict that the SimNation housing market will continue to run very well. Pity the average first-time house in the UK (where I live) has apparently gone up to £175,093, but I suppose you can't have everything...

By the way, Phaenoh, you're not the only person who plays with light-free houses a lot of the time. I usually don't bother installing lights unless the headmaster's coming round (the lights increase environment scores slightly at night), also for computer performance reasons.

Well, it hasn't lost all its charm. This one is absolutley perfect in terms of functionality and for larger starter families.
