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: "Licorice Daze"

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 one bathroom. The house's color is black. This house even has a pool!

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, Seabreeze Island, Cinnamon Retreat, and Seashell Cove!


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

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: 19,973

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.

This is an excellent design, especially the simplicity.

Starters are a quite hard challenge, yes. You start building and then, when you're still far from having reached half of work, discover that you have spent the damned 20000 simoleon!!! Love this serie, also the funny names of the houses. Very good. Thank you and ciao.

You won't have to reroof them. All of the roofs are different! Just the outside wall covering and outdoor tiles are the same!

This is beautiful work. It really is, thanks. One question though, do you really need all of them EPs? Because I don't have Bon Voyage... And I really want this house!

The trees I used came with BV, as long as you install with Clean Installer, things might work, I don't know. Your best case scenario is that it installs and all the trees flash blue when you load the lot. Try deleting them. If that works, please report back, I've had other people ask that same question and I don't have a definite answer for them yet.

Thanks for yet another great house. I particularly like the chair recolour, which would have been worth the download on its own.

Phaenoh, I just stumbled over some of your default replacements and then found these little houses. They are exactly what I have been looking for. Thanks very much for making my day with those default swimtrunks and pretty houses!

I have finished downloading everything from your SandSimolean neighborhood and the cottages, looking forward to moving some of my bright shiny new college grads in to start their new lives! Thanks for all your hard work!

Cool, a starter with a pool! That'll be a change for me. I just love the names you chose for these houses. Great job, and thanks a bunch for sharing!

This is a very interesting looking house. In a good way though. The black has a very nice effect. Thanks!
