Deborah: MidCentury Design V12707 ~ 4B/3.5B/Garage and Pool - No-Slope Basement

24 Thanks  Thanks     1 Favourited
MidCentury Design V12707
1-Click Foundation
4 bedrooms - 3.5 bathrooms - garage
- pet friendly - pool - no-slope basement -

~~~ Only 1 CC used: HL's SimplePassageStairs (necessary to access the 1-click foundation) ~~~


The floor plan comes from this book: One-Story Homes, published by HomePlanners, Inc in 1991
An on-line archive of the plan is HERE.

I must explain the "Z-fighting Mess" (flickering) between the pool and basement walls, shown in the above picture. This is just a graphical glitch - it will not harm your game/computer in any way. It is caused by the way the Grid-Adjuster manipulates walls for a no-slope basement. If it bothers you too much, just take out the pool I kept it in; I thought the pool was worth it . Also note - the basement has huge sections that are unfinished. If you finish it out, you can hide the Z-fighting/flicker with tall bookshelves.

Please enjoy touring the inside of this house by scrolling through the above pictures. I hope you have a sim family who will enjoy living here.

This house is sparsely furnished. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove and fireplace have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. There is a telephone 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 one vehicle in the garage. The driveway is shortened - so there will be no car-turning-in-the-driveway animations.

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them, the tub is accessible for dog washing.

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.)

Custom Content Included
- Simple Passage Modular Stair by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!

Lot Size: 3X2
Lot Price (furnished): $70,027

Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster and Lot Adjuster tools - both were used to make this lot.

NOTE: I use HL's Tweaked SweetDownLow to add shiftablilty and stop items from turning dark when they are shifted down. So - if pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights have 'jumped' out of place when you install one of my lots - just click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)

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 Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
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
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
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.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
And Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
