PLEASE NOTE: There was a problem with the first package. It has been fixed as of May 19, 2020, 10:45 pm EST - please redownload if you have the original file. I'm sorry for the inconvenience! Your game will not explode with the old file, but you won't be able to enter the house either. Ooopsie!


The forty-ninth house in my "1920s Series" - inspired by 62 Beautiful Vintage Home Designs from the 1920s - is the "Crowder," another English Colonial style Cottage that is a bit more 'rustic' in feel. It's "6 Rooms and Bath" include three bedrooms, living, dining, and kitchen - and also a full basement. I've included a driveway with parking for one vehicle, and there is a decent little patch of yard - just enough for a pretty rose garden

This is a "Corner Lot" - meant to be placed at a crossroads/intersection in your neighborhood.
This lot has been adjusted with Mootilda's GridAdjuster to have a cute little 1-click foundation.
AND it has a No-Slope basement - thank you again, Moo!
It is also Big Dog approved (Thanks to Shasta and Huge Lunatic.)

I am really NOT a fan of the EA-awnings - I hope you can find CC awning that are more suitable (or just leave them off, like I did on my permanent copy.)






Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Furniture includes a double bed, a nightstand with an alarm clock, two closets, a chaise, coat-rack, and a dining set. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located in the front hall. The front door is burglar alarmed. The range and both fireplaces 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 over both fireplaces - in the living room, and upstairs Master bedroom.

There is parking for one vehicle on the driveway.

CC list - used but NOT included - so, GO get it:
- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2 - used to fix wonky wall issues. Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button down below to see how I did it
- 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 come from this bundle.

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


Custom Content by Me:
- Balustrade/Steadfast Stair REC - Brown by Chrissy/redone for HL's Recolorable Balustrade/Steadfast Stairs by Me

Custom Content Included:
- Balustrade/Steadfast Stairs - made recolorable by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2 - No script file needed for these as these override the original stairs.
- Balustrade/Steadfast Stairs - Open Underneath by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!
- Simple Passage Modular Stairs by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - 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...
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): $52,031
