Well, my first upload. Long time downloader, first time contributor.

Something I used to do during times of boredom when I was younger was take house catalogues and draw them up for adaptation in The Sims 2. In the two year break I had from the game, my parents kindly threw all the catalogues I drew up out, but I found this one which I hadn't drawn up yet and I thought I might share one with the community to see what they think.

This particular house is heavily based on the Dixon Homes BU8301 with a few alterations to get it to fit into TS2.

The Wulkuraka is a basic U-Shaped house based on the Dixon Homes BU3801 (A boring enginer name meaning Bullnose Verandah, U-shaped, Line 3, Item 8, Style 1) in the Dixon Homes July 2008 catalogue. It's a fairly large house, designed with two dining rooms (Casual and Formal), two living areas (Casual and Formal), a kind of generous Kitchen (By Australian Standards) and a whopping four bedrooms, capable of housing seven sims as furnished here. Not bad for a 3x3 lot, though your sims will need to fork over around §80,000 for the pleasue of living here.

All bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes and the house has all of the basic furnishings required to sustain a family (logic-building and body-building objects not included) decorated in light colours giving a sense of space and the rear of the house is fenced to keep all of the local Colleen Smarts from peeping. Of course, the backyard isn't big enough to do anthing meaningful with anyway. The interior is decorated as any good production line housing estate house is with the individual decoration done by inhabitants to truly make it their own. The interior gives the feeling of spaciousness, with earthly tones provided by dark woods contrasting against the light colours provided in the common areas and on the walls for a dynamic colour scheme.

There's also some modifications you can make without significantly altering the degsign. By making a few modifications (read: removals) of the master bedroom and ensuite, moving the bathroom and utilising the spare room, you can have a single-car garage while maintaining the four bedroom layout!

Anyway, I hope someone else enjoys this as much as me.

Indepth statistics/rooms:
4 Bedrooms
1 Full, independent Bathroom
An Ensuite to Bedroom 2
Living / Dining Room
Family / Meals Room / Kitchen
(and if I had my way, I'd inclue the 1/4 Bullnose Verandah specified, but I can't because they don't exist in the TS2 universe)

In total, the house takes up a total of 380 tiles on the lot.

Now, there are a few custom objects used in this lot, but the list is rather short.
