This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Arch that can be extended to any width. Diagonals are included.

This item uses the repository technique as described by IgnorantBliss at MTS2.

To recolor use the Maxis ValueWood Lumber "Justa Door".
