I have been asked by a couple of people if I could change my Recurve Strand Beach Bar lot into a residential lot and a beach house. I didn't intend to embark on this project so soon but I'm at a loss for inspiration with some of my Sunset Valley Community Lots so I chose to fix up the Beach Bar!

You can find the Beach Bar version here: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=374222 It is part of my collection of remade community lots for Sunset Valley.

Once again, I used no tiki items from the store!



I've tried to keep the integrity and original feel of the Beach Bar from before, whilst making it a suitable home for a single person or couple. The house requires sims who is fond of outdoor living as the indoor living space is limited. A party sim would also love this home as there is plenty of space for entertaining and throwing parties!

Features

Front porch with seating area
Indoor living room
Outdoor kitchen/dining area
Upstairs main bathroom
Downstairs master bedroom with shower - doors to the beach
Beach garden space with seating area and bar
Seperate bar with outdoor toilet



The lot fits perfectly on Recurve Strand, a 40x30 lot. It would however work on the beach lot in the very centre of Sunset Valley too (with some slight landscaping changes). The house could theoretically fit on a normal lot too but you'd have to do alot of landscaping.

Furnished - $92,324
Unfurnished - $44,299

You have to let the download finish... If you open it before it is finished it says this. If your download has finished then redownload since you probably had a problem in the download.

3 things to try...

bulldoze the existing lot
change lot type back to community then residential
build on the lot with a wall then bulldoze

I need a little help in building.
How do you build the stairs from the first floor to the second floor in that way?

you could not have the CC but then alot of the plants wouldn't come up and you'd have to go through and place other plants...

other than that you'd just be lacking the proper patterns, which are used on the windows/doors and some 'fabrics'... and ofc you'd end up with one of the ugly default roofs....entirely up to you if you feel you can make it look good without these things
