I primarily made this home for a family that works from home, and has one child. I wanted to explain the, ummm, "unique" layout of the home, since there is no "common" bathroom for guests. This family doesn't entertain guests nor do they like to watch TV. They do, however, love chess, reading, painting, video games and dancing... so they always have plenty to do at home for fun.

The house comes with two computers in a dedicated computer room so the parents have a quiet space to write novels, blog, etc. There is a door to a bathroom off of the computer room for convenience. This bathroom also connects to their bedroom for easy access as well. (The second bedroom has its own attached bathroom as well.)

The bedrooms are furnished a bit sparsely, except for the easel in the second bedroom and some decor items. The rooms have a small windowed area off of them with sunflowers, as I originally intended nature to provide as their "window shades", but decided against that.

I hope you can find a unique family to fill this home with! Would also be great for roommates or a parent-in-law situation. To summarize:
This home has:
  • 2 bedrooms.
  • 2 baths (one off of each bedroom).
  • Fire alarm, burglar alarm, and phone.
  • Living room with radio, chess, and bookcase.
  • Computer room with two PCs, desks, chairs and appropriate deco.
  • Minimal landscaping and sunflower ledge off of each bedroom.

No CC was used, but all EPs/SPs are installed.
I also had some great help from the Mentoring for Builders Group. Thanks for the roof help, guys!

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

@SapphireSunrise - I like to *try* and build simple and functional, so I hope they meet the mark in game. Enjoy and thank you for the comment. Sometimes it is nice to play Sims who just unplug and enjoy non-electronic items.
