Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After playing the Sims 3 recently, I started feeling a little nostalgic for those 'good old days' and the simple joy of exploring the sims 2 without all that extra stuff. So as a little challenge to myself, I booted up the base game on my old laptop with minimal CC and started fiddling around with the Pleasantview characters. Typically I couldn't help but make-over some maxis houses too! :D

195 Main Street (or Darren and Dirk Dreamer's house) was the first home I decided to tackle. Sure, I've made over this house before with all EPs, but I still thought it would be nice to share this basegame version too for those who don't have them all.

Situated on a 3x3 lot and priced at $52 675, with 2-3 beds and 2 baths the mid sized home is perfect for small families or a couple looking to start one.

Since 195 Main street IS the Dreamer's home in my game, it still retains many of Darren and Dirks favourite things, including a large art room on the 2nd floor. Perhaps Darren will finally realise his dream of becoming a famous artist?

With minimal CC, the home also comes with an outdoor eating area, pool and spa. Perfect for entertaining or relaxing on a hot day after school.
I had a great time creating this home and I hope your sims have just as much fun living it it.
Purchase today and enjoy!

I'm also playing basegame with minimal CC on my laptop, so it's wonderful to find downloads to go along with that. Great job.

would you consider converting this to the sims 3?

A watched pot never boils. But a watched pan still fries, and a grease fire burns down your house whether you watch it or not.

Thank you for this. I have gotten disillusioned with TS3 due to the recent patch fiasco and bought sims 2 to ammend the situation a bit, but all the houses were too small to even put in a dbl bed in the master room. WT...? So I really am happy you made this cute house that has enough room to have a husband one day!

nice one but i think i am gonna edit it and add nightlife to this house.. wich means ill add a garage instead of the garden .. or make rooms smaller so i can add somewhere a garage. Do you have any other houses you remade for Sims 2?
