1920's Vintage Home Design ~ 3b/1b Dutch Colonial, 25th in the Series

The twenty-fifth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is a Dutch Colonial with a nice bay window in front and sun parlor to the side. It has all comfortably sized rooms with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, a full basement, and a carriage house garage. The brochure assure us it is designed to "provide every comfort for a large family and yet is arranged so that the housework is not burdensome." [...must mean it comes with an included servo, right?]

NOTE: This house is built on a "corner lot." As it says above, the driveway is not turned sideways, the house is. The driving animations are as they should be. But, make sure when you place this lot in your 'hood, that you place it at a corner/intersection so that the roads make sense with the location of the front door and the driveway. Also, there is parking available for two vehicles - one in the garage, and one on the driveway.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, two nightstands (one with alarm clock,) three closets, and a dining table. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is on the wall in the kitchen. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range has a smoke alarm.

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 stove in the kitchen. Pictures were also taken with the Invisible Driveway, but the lot is not packaged with it. I highly recommend both invisifying options! .

CC list - used but NOT included - so, GO get it:

...and I highly recommend getting:

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
If you need help installing Numenor's Unlevel Wall #90, click this info button:

I use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
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): $41,202
