Southwest Style Adobe Ranch
This sprawling 1-story ranch features the Torrox Build Set by Moune999.
It has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a 2-car garage, both front and back porches, and a very large swimming pool.
The lot has been Grid-Adjusted for a 2-Click Foundation (Thank you Moo!) and is pet friendly.

I am really well pleased with how the Master Bath turned out! . I wish my RL bathroom was this nice I hope your sims will like it too!

Please enjoy touring the rest of this sprawling ranch by scrolling through the above pictures. There is a LOT to see in this place! I hope you have some sims who will enjoy living here.

This house is fully furnished and lightly decorated - there's always room to add more. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove, grill, and all three fireplaces have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. There are two telephones: one in the living room, and one in the family room.

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 four vehicles; two on the driveways, and two in the garage.

This is a pet-friendly build. Pet items are not included, but there is ample space for them - and the Master Bath tub is accessible for dog washing.
Please see Picture "#9_Foundation" to learn where the invisible stairs are that will allow Large Dogs access to the house.

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ 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:
- The Torrox Master Mesh - 2-Story Window by moune999 @ MTS - without this window in your DL folder all the Torrox build items will flash blue!
- Torrox Connecting Columns - for the outdoor walkways
- Torrox Border Fence in Brown - for the roof edge/trim
- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2 - used to fix CFE'd wonky walls around doors and windows. Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button down below to see how I did it

Custom Content Included:
- Simple Passage Modular Stairs by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these require a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!
- Torrox: Spanish/Southwestern Build Set Part 2 - Windows Doors Archways by moune999 @ MTS2
- Torrox: Spanish/Southwestern Build Set Part 4 - Wall_AdobeBrown by moune999 @ MTS2
- Torrox: Spanish/Southwestern Build Set Part 7 - Window Sills by moune999 @ MTS2
- Torrox: Spanish/Southwestern Build Set Part 8 - Privacy Window by moune999 @ MTS2
- Torrox: Spanish/Southwestern Build Set Part 9 - Columns by moune999 @ MTS2
- RetainingWall Meshes & REC by tBudgett @ MTS2
- Shiftable OMSP 1sm & InvisREC by SilentLucidity @ MTS2

Lot Size: 4x5
Lot Price (furnished): $172,512

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.
