Expansive Contemporary
...a part of The 80's Called series
4 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms - oversized garage - sunken patio
this is a CORNER lot with a 2-Step Foundation, built with the (Grid-Adjuster)
lightly furnished & ready for you to decorate
...with only 1 CC set included: tBudgett's PG (Pinegultcher) Build Set

Do you remember the 80's? Boy, I do! ...like totally!
...But the 1980's were more than just neon colors, big hair, Madonna, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, MTV, righteous toys, and most excellent games like Nintendo and Pac-Man. It also had it's own awesome iconic building style - postmodern "contemporary" architecture (which is, sadly, no longer contemporary today.) Houses from the 80's often present asymmetrical facades, geometric shapes, unusual rooflines, and stone accented features against a mix of vertical and diagonal wood siding. It is an eclectic mix of patterns, fer shure.

This fantabulously shweet floor plan is #V34102 from Multilevel Hillside Homes (Home Planners, Inc) - a scan of the floor plan is included.






This is very much an 80's build with it's soaring rooflines, vertical siding, rock wall, sunken patio, hot tub, peach and green glamour bathroom, wall-to-wall carpet, cathedral ceiling-ed living room with an internal balcony... and a few problems. *sigh*

Like, gag me with a spoon, but there was no way I could beat that grody roof into submission! The upper hallway is just not weatherproof. All the other rooms are fine, it's just the hallway that has a problem.

...And the outside balcony in the family room is not accessible - see the gif below for an explanation.


I intentionally keep my builds lightly furnished - with only EAxis stuffeths - so that you can have all the fun of decorating it! (Please CC-it-up once you get it in your game!) All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included; along with smoke and burglar alarms, and telephones.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here.
The lot was cleaned and compressed with Chris Hatch's Lot Compressor.
The package was cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.
This lot has an easily identifiable custom thumbnail too.

The sun is oriented to the front.

There is parking for one vehicle in the garage. There is a parking place on the driveway too - but it is sloped, and parking on it may cause your game to crash. (Driving through it is perfectly safe though!)

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included, but there is plenty of room to add what you need. This house has a 2-step foundation - so if you want to allow large dogs inside, they are going to need Simler90's Stair Mods to be able to access the 2-Step foundation. OR they can enter the house from the back doors.

TIP: If, when you first enter the lot, arches/doorways are not "cut through" - save, exit to the hood, and re-enter. Fixed!

Definitely used but NOT included:
Get this item if you want the house to look exactly as shown in the pictures.

Custom Content Included
- tBudgett's PG (Pinegultcher) Build Set

Lot Size: 30X50
Lot Price: $118,719

Thank you, Mootilda - who's Grid Adjuster was used to create this house for TS2.

Standard mods I use that are not necessary, nor included - but were probably used whilst building/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
Feenwald's Blocked Doors can Close (so doors close properly!)
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which includes the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
Lamare's Shiftable Everything
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
