I ran into an example of a small water trap in my newest house, the Spanish style of my previous posts uptopic.
The first picture below shows a small water trap, where the roof pitch would direct rainwater against the wall of the house. In Sims 2, examples such as this are no big deal, since they often cannot be fixed. In real life, an area such as this might have the corner of the roof pitch slightly away from the house, or just have added flashing against the wall to prevent leaks, or both. Nevertheless, in real life this is a good example of a "problem area" that would need to be kept an eye on.
The second picture shows that I was able to add a small section of Lean-To roofing in that area, and the third and fourth pictures show the end result once the Lean-To roof angle was reduced to 15 degrees to match the rest of the roof. There are no roof sections visible inside the house.
Come to think of it, making the angle of the little Lean-To piece a bit steeper, say about 18 degrees, might look even better

My second neighborhood is getting "leftover" lots after cleanup. There might be a plenty I will share but not all. Scaryrob came with really useful suggestions to improve it, there is 99% I will use it for other houses. But some houses don't worth to fix it. I'll just post its pictures here and then demolish it. Why am l doing this? Well... The Sims 2 is very old game you know. It is 15 years! There are so much of lots even better then those. Also Lots is the MOST filled Downloads section! Seriously, why should I build something that's already done? And why should I fix something that needs too much effort. I prefer to demolish houses that needs too many fixes. The real estate market is overflowed :D! I can even behave whimsical. So I start fresh rather then scratching my head in search of the right roof slope angle or make any efforts to fix existed. I do it without any regrets.
I posted two in previous post that already demolished and one in downloads that was looking good. And all they were smashed already in my game hehe I need to think about post more of lots before demolish.

So I started this massive Georgian Colonial revival estate yesterday! Wanted to have a grand Foyer with Dual Grand staircases! Reminiscent of The Gilded Age!

I did one like that once...

It's one of the ones I am NOT going to redo (in my recent quest to redo all my old lots ) ...it just needs too much work - just about everything is CC. *sigh*

Love it! Guessing you based this off an actual floor plan you found

I just finished to play test version of Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle.
The guitar can not be putted in into inventory, sims always put it at random place even when at home and that cause route traps. My sim putted something in a way if mailman that he did not reach mailbox and I missed the letter. Burnt food can not be taken from burnt stove. Plates were always taken to a sink even I had a machine for utilising it. Also electricty is always counted in a weird way, it is always too much or not enough. And many many other glitches in Sims 4 were found just during 4 or 5 hours of gameplay.

Those groundbreaking feature of sims walking slower when wanna pee (instead of rushing to toilet as in all other parts) was really gorgeous. My sims peed themeselves almost everywhere after jogging around. I was laught a lot.

All Sims 4 reminded me even not Sims 2 but Sims 1. Do you remember those times where your sims eat whan already has full hunger bar?? Ha! In Sims 4 this "feature" turned back!!
Actually I was very impressed by this Sims 4 because it reminded me Sims 1 that I loved so much!!! I suggest you to play those dummies at least once. That's fun!

No... that one was just outta my head (Back in 2011: GeorgianManor)

@Vic - I'm glad you had fun playing... I've been lost in DragonAge lately. I haven't built anything in so long, I think I forgot how! LOL!
