Wow, and here I thought I had downloaded too many houses as it is, this is definitely a "Must Have"!! Great job, I really love the design and the look of it.

Huh?? .. I didn't knew you could place the garage door like that? .. did you use the cheats or something? .. and what does the animation look like when you're parking your car or driving out of your garage?

sorry for being anxious .. :p

Your house is really beautiful, I like the way you designed the interior and exterior of the house. Can you upload a furnished version of it with the custom content included? if its not 2 much to ask, pretty please. :valentine

Extremely nice! Is there a tutorial somewhere to help me build a house with the downward sloping driveway? I keep seeing houses with driveways that way but I don't know how it's done.

Default tutorial here
my tutorial of building garage - "garage fun":

daphnie...

p.s some people in mikeinside said they can't make the garage in another direction, the thing is sometimes it turned to the left, sometimes to the right. so far... i tried so many times and it worked... let me find out what's the real trick behind.... then i will update the tutorial

I'm curious about that issue, also. My game won't even let me place a driveway over at or near the extreme right of a lot, never mind a sideways garage door. What's the secret?

I haven't any idea placing a garage like this was even possible! Anyway, this is an amazing house as a whole, thank you!

Nice one, siudada! I like the ultra modern look and kinky roof. Hopefully, you playtested the house a bit as lately some cool houses have not "worked". Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the tutorial I appreciate it greatly

*edit* Well it's a very nice tutorial but it still doesn't tell me what I originally wanted to know. I want to make a house with a downward sloping driveway. I assume it uses the boolprop constrainfloorelevation cheat but I'd rather have a step by step process to follow so I don't fudge anything up

Loving the house. Very modern and clean in design, no wasted space. The glass study/conservatory is a VERY nice touch.

Daphnie,

I figured out the whole secret of the driveway placement and how you can get it going in whatever direction you want (even backwards)! I will PM you, daphnie, first and explain all later (after work-darn rl, gets in the way of sims).
