Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I originally planned to rebuild this house for TS4, but as usual it turned out a little different.





Furnished for four sims, separate kitchen/dining and living room on the ground floor, three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, with pool in the back yard.

Screenshots are taken with this and this mesh override (Mega chair and Mission beds), but they are not necessary for the lot to function.

Installation: Unzip and put the package in /Mods. See here for how to package lots (this works the same way for sims). To uninstall, delete the package ‒ if you “delete” a lot from the Library, it is only being hidden and will remain hidden if you decide to re-download. See also this post (same thread):

Love, love this house! I'm a little confused though. As a package file does it go into mods or tray? Thanks again for all your wonderful mods, love them all!

The 'Basic' directions are the same install directions you get with most of the CC on this site. But when I come upon a house that is normally put into the tray folder I was surprised to find it a package file which only goes into the mod folder. Now, without any explanation for why this is so (unless you follow the obscure link at the bottom of your description to another page that explains how to change the file to a package in order put it into the mods folder.. and other geeky junk I can't understand) you would have no idea that everything is perfectly copacetic. A simple one line explanation can't be that hard, especially for the intermediate-noobs-that-know-just-enough-to-make-it-difficult-for-those-that-know-it-all.

Figure it's a good trade-off for disregarding your flippant response and still adoring all of your creations.

I don't upload to the gallery, so my Origin ID is fairly irrelevant.

I love this house! I unzipped it into my mods folder and it's not showing up in my gallery. I do have other mods that are working in my game. How do I make it show up in my game?
Thanks for your creations!

ETA: It works! I had to click the "show custom content" in my gallery to see it. I'm posting this for any other newbie having trouble. Beautiful house!!

This somehow reminds me of the best Maxis houses in TS3. It's perfect.

I put the package directly into the Mods folder not a subfolder and I checked "show custom content" but its still not working. Please send help!
