This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Because I like the ability to have different interior and exterior colors on my doors and windows I decided to re-do my Craftsman window set found HERE .

2/9/12 - The good news. I changed the GUID's and filenames, as these windows were conflicting with my old set. Now both sets will function together.
The bad news. You will have to manually delete this version from your downloads folder BEFORE adding the new files. Any house that used this set will have to have the windows redone.

IMPORTANT - This set will replace Maxis Craftsman/Symmetric Poly-Molecular Matrix Window so the file _Craftsman/Symmetric Poly-Molecular Matrix Window - Master needs to be in the file of an uploaded houses. This has to be done so that the interior and exterior windows could have different colors.

When you recolor use the _tb_Craftsman_Maxis Replacement-MASTER.package. One texture will recolor both the interior and exterior frames.

The craftsman glass will no longer be recolorable but windows cloned using it will work fine.

Matching Half-Walls can be found HERE

Matching Garage Door can be found HERE

This is wonderful. Thanks so much for doing this. One question: Because you had to replace the Maxis window, will the recolors I already have work? For instance, Icad made such lovely recolors. I hope they will still work!!

takart - Sorry, to hear that. Try taking the 3 tiled windows out and see what happens.

I agree with everyone else, these are wonderful. I particularly like the glass doors and 2 story windows.

Thanks bunches for the 2-sided color option.

I love these windows and use them all the time! Thank you so much.

Any chance of getting a LOW tall privacy window on 1 tile that is closed? I am trying to use them on my craftsman bungalow shed dormer...if I ever figure it out...and it would be more realistic if closed.
But if no, I still love this set!!

Thank you for all your expansion sets, they are so very useful! In this one, I especially like the one-tile-two-storey window. Usually, two-storey windows are always two tiles wide, which gets really annoying when you want to put them on a three-tile wall...

I still like the sims 2 better than 3 and when I find treasures like this I'm so greatful that people share their creations, I cannot even recolor a lamp because my computer skills are so poor. So thank you, I don't think I would enjoy the game nearly as much without fantastic creations like this.
