Welcome to...

This wonderfully spacious house is finished out in light neutral colors with an Asian vibe, and is ready for your decorating touches! Please scroll through the pictures to see what all I've changed. Maxis gave this house to us as a one bedroom/one bath ~ I've added two more bedrooms, a bathroom, and a powder room, a garage-to-house entrance, changed out staircases and windows, and cohesified fences. I tried to use as little CC as possible, but still bring it "up to code" (to incorporate all EPs/SPs/UC game elements.)

Again, please scroll through ALL the pictures to see everything this house has to offer. This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. There are invisible smoke alarms - one at the stove, and one at the outside grill. The phone is in the living room, and the burglar alarm is by the stairs at the front door. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, trash cute, stove, fridge, nuker, toaster oven, and coffee maker. This house is recommend for large families and sims who like to entertain often.

The last picture shows where the original house is placed in Downtown. To swap out my version of this house with the original, you can either bulldoze (delete) or move the original house into the lots/houses bin, then put my version in it's place.

Great improvement. I remember using this house years ago in Pleasantview and a band practised in the large room next to the garage. Your layout is much better.
