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.

This is a column, so it is located with the other colums in build mode and costs §25,00.
The news is that it is a tikki umbrella that is shaped and calculated so that they can be placed together to create a straw porch. You can also build a wild aborigene house or whatever you may have in mind.
As they are columns, each column will create a 9 tiles ceiling place on the top that you can fill up with floor tiles. Then you may build walls around to make a straw house, or fences to make a patio or porch. The interior of the house or porch will show wild straw if you use an invisible floor tile directly on the ceiling from inside the construction. I supplied a semi-invisible recolor of the column so that you have only one center column (or none). Remember that you cannot place an object behind a column, sims will claim that they cannot use the object. BUT the column is made passable so that you Can place an object directly Under the column and therefore sim will use them without problems. See pics for reference.
The semi invisible recolor has a sort of socket and is calculated to room whatever game ceiling lamp, specially the canister spotlight and this is the reason I supplied two matching recolors for that light, if you don't have any.

The umbrella Is originally separated in two recolorable sets, so is this column.

This is one more part of my project "Construction Puzzles". It is in fact a puzzle brick and can be used at taste.

I used Simpe, Milkshape and Photoshop 7 to make this object.

Have fun!
