This is a re-make of this lot for TS3 ‒ it’s not quite identical due to technical differences between TS3 and 4, and I also modified the floor plan on the ground floor somewhat, but it’s pretty close.





The house is fully furnished except for the basement which is empty; it will fit on a 15×20 lot like the original.

Installation: Unzip and put the package in /Mods. See here for how to package lots (this works the same way for sims). To uninstall, delete the package ‒ if you “delete” a lot from the Library, it is only being hidden and will remain hidden if you decide to re-download. See also this post (same thread):

So I dropped this into my mods folder in a subfolder named Houses (because there are no stray package files loose in my mods folder, everything is in a subfolder), and it doesn't show up in my Library. This is the first lot I've loaded that uses the package file format. Is there something I have to mod to get the game to recognize it?

As with other lots, try the "Custom Content" option in Library (bottom left). The game regards any lot that's been saved when there is CC in game as "modded", regardless of whether any CC is actually used in the lot.

When I place the house on a lot, my game doesn't like that the staircases are stacked and automatically removes one or both of them. When I try to replace them, the game allows one staircase, but not another one directly above or below. Is there a cheat code for this that I am unaware of? BB.Moveobjects doesn't help.

To stack stairs, you need to place the topmost one first, then remove the stair walls, then place the stairs below. The game doesn't allow stairs to be placed through stair walls.
