The roofline is what initially caught my eye on this one... after battling the TS2 Roof Tool on several of my later 1920's Series Houses, I saw this design on-line and thought, "Now there's an interesting roof! It'll be tricky - but it's definitely 'do-able'." . So, I did it. It was fun too. LOL! I hope you have a nice large family that will enjoy spreading out in this house.

I made very few changes to the original plan. Like... the 3rd floor Laundry Room is now a TV Lounge. The Media area off the garage is now a Games Room AND a second Master Suite. (There was a LOT of room down there; though not enough for 4 TS2 cars!) I also added 2 bedrooms and another half bath.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. The house is fully furnished and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove, fireplaces, and grill all have a smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. The telephones are centrally located on each level.

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 two vehicles: one on the driveway, and one in the garage.

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2

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.)

Definitely used and NOT included - you MUST go get these before installing this lot:
- 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
- Windkeeper's OFB Window Add-Ons - especially these 3 windows: short, 2Tshort and 2Ttall windows.

Custom Content by Me:
- wallpaper - MM-LifestyleStoriesFantasyWave
- 3T mural - Wood Stump Cross-Grain

Custom Content Included:
- Smooth Edge - black by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists
- Modern Fence - low by lirunchik @ TSR
- Luxury Arch Add-On Set by Leesester/LeeFish @ LeeFish
- Intl Window Add-On Set by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2
- Intl Window 3T - Central by SimtopiX @ MTS2
- Intl Window 3T - Bottom by SimtopiX @ MTS2
- Intl Window - Tall Pair by SimtopiX @ MTS2
- Intl Window - Sq Low by SimtopiX @ MTS2
- CallaLily Flowers by From the EA Store Nouveaulicious Set @ GoS

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price (furnished): $166,077

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.

Doesn't that mean 'kitchy-cute'? As in Hello Kitty - cute? LOL! I always think of Lupins as kind of other-worldly and spacey-looking.
