Whereas EAxis gave us an 'upside down' house - without a complete bathroom and with a very small, pretty much unusable kitchen, I give you:

A modern 2 bedroom/2 bath with a carport and a nice fishing hole.
Remodeled and brought up to code for your simmies to enjoy

Please scroll through all the pictures to see everything this house has to offer - pay special attention to the last 3 pictures as they tell you where the original house is located and how to fix the flooding problem in the basement. Apparently Bluewater Village is in a major flood zone! What were those EAxian City Planners thinking about?!? Basements are a real problem in this area, unless you adjust the terrain ahead of time. The last 2 pictures explain how to raise the terrain for this lot and stop the flooded basements. If you put this lot in any other neighborhood - or on higher ground in Bluewater - you will not have flooding issues.

This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Invisible smoke alarms are under the range hood in the kitchen and by the outdoor grill, the phone is on the wall by the stairs, and the burglar alarm is by the front door. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, trash compacter, stove, fridge, and nuker. Everything for a Sim's basic needs is included; and there is a lot of space on the lot to build out if needed. This lot is sparsely decorated - please personalize it to meet your sims whims.

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Corner Column by HL @ MTS2
Edger in Black by HL @ Sims2Artists
Expedit Bookshelf by HL @ MTS2
Backless Tub/Shower by HL @ MTS2
Value Counter Completer Set by NixedSims @ WordPress
Lack Black Expedit Bookshelf recolor by Michelle @ MTS2
Invisible Driveway by SophieDavid @ MTS2
Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I used wallpapers from this set.
You will also need: Anoeska's MMF AL Spiral Stairs in your game. Though they are not used on this lot. These are mirrored versions of the Maxis Spiral stairs, and they include a change which allows sims to walk under all the spiral stairs. I have had Anoeska's stairs in my game forEVER, and I didn't realize EAxis hadn't built the stairs that way to begin with! It just makes so much sense that one should be able to walk under the stairs - - I can't imagine it otherwise. Thank you ScaryRob, for pointing out another Maxis fail

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.

Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price (furnished): $39,817
