1920's Vintage Home Design ~ 3bed/1bath American Foursquare, 12th in the Series

The twelfth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is an American Foursquare with "6 Rooms, Bath and Private Porch." The six rooms include three large bedrooms, a huge living room, dining room, and spacious kitchen. The "Porch" is enclosed and more like a sun room. There is a full basement and a driveway, with parking space for one vehicle.
I really wanted to capture the "look" of the original house's siding, but without adding a bunch of CC. So, I went with the closest siding the game had to offer. It works; but it's really not the best. I'm hoping you will find the perfect CC wallpaper/siding to convey the original architects intent.

Please remember, when you place his lot in your hood, that it is a corner lot - make sure the roads make sense with the driveway orientation and front door placement...

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. It is furnished with a double bed, nightstand/alarm clock, two small closets, a loveseat, dining table, and a lounge chair out on the sun porch. Appliances, plumbing, and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the kitchen. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and fireplace have smoke alarms.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer. Pictures were taken with Invisible Fire Alarms in place, but the lot is packaged without that mod. So, you will see the fire alarm over the range in the kitchen, and the fireplace in the living room. Pictures were also taken with the Invisible Driveway, but the lot is not packaged with it. I highly recommend both invisifying options! .

CC list - necessary and NOT included - so, GO get it:
- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2 - used to fix wonky wall issues
- Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. Many of the wallpapers used in this 1920s series comes from this bundle.
- Craftsmen Window - made recolorable by tBudgett @ MTS2 - the MASTER file overrides the original Maxis Symmetric Poly-Molecular Matrix Window - you need the MASTER part of this set, or the attic window will be missing textures and flash blue when you load the lot.
- Walnut Door REC in Treehouse by iCad @ MTS2
- Wellwisher REC in Treehouse by iCad @ MTS2
- VIP Door REC in ALMed Wood by Michelle @ MTS2
- Belhooven/OFB Windows REC in ALMed Wood by Michelle @ MTS2

...and I highly recommend getting:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2

Custom Content Included:
- DeckStairs_main by Numenor @ MTS2 - no script file needed as these override the original stairs.
- DeckStairs_OpenUnderneath by Reyn @ MTS2 - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!

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
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
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: 2x2
Lot Price (furnished): $51,411
