In the midst of arguing with the dang-blasted @#$%!* TS2 roof-tool over this house I decided I needed to step back and take a break... and build something easy for a bit.
So, this is one of those "break" houses.

This house is built from RL floor plans, and a copy of the original plans are included in the additional pictures. My simmed version has a taller roof than the original because I added the loft - I felt 'year round living' needed a bit more inside living space than the originally designed "vacation retreat" had. The roof-line carries down through the garage addition in back, so the over-all wedge shape of the building design is preserved. My outside siding/color choices are different from the original too - because I was going for a No CC build. Please feel free to CC-it-up once you get it in your 'hood :D.

...and please, for the love of Mike err all that is Holy errr ANYthing - swap out that silly fireplace for one without such a tall chimney. LOL! This is a CC-Free build. Enjoy

An UNFurnished version is also included (as a separate DL file) for your convenience. It is CC-Free as well:

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. This house is available in 2 versions: Furnished or UNFurnished.
For both versions - All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located by the bedroom doors. 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.

There is parking for three vehicles: one in the garage, and two on the driveway.

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price (Furnished): $48,916
Lot Price (UNFfurnished): $32,188

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)
--- It is also a distinct possibility that Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 was used in this build. I don't think it was. But, again, I use it all the time and it might have been. If you load the lot and walls are missing (not just unpapered, but gone completely, or substituted out with an iron fence) then you will need to get Numenor's Wall #90 and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.) If you've never heard of this wall before - it is THE miracle building-tool-of-the-century! IMHO It fixes a whole multitude of building conundrums.

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 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.
