38 Greaves Avenue ~ Downtown - Maxis MakeOver 2Bed/2Bath + Garage

This house is located in Downtown, and is very similar to its neighbor: 36 Greaves Avenue (which I also remade) Both of these remade versions use matching brick, so they will look nice side-by-side in the 'hood. However, I remade this one completely different from its neighbor. Check 'em both out






Please scroll through all the pictures above to see all this house has to offer.

This lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Invisible smoke alarms are under the range hood in the kitchen and at the grill outside, the phone is on the wall in the family room, and the burglar alarm is by the front door. I added a bit more furniture than Maxis originally gave us with this house - but, decorations are still at a minimum. Please personalize it to meet your sims whims!

Let's go house-hunting with the Gavigans...


This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The package has been cleaned with both Mootilda's Clean Installer and Chris Hatch's Lot Compressor (read about it HERE ) and then double checked with SimPE - it's as squeaky as they come!


Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Backless Tub/Shower by HL @ MTS2
Smitty Classy Short Window by HL @ Sims2Artists
Smitty Classy Single Door by HL @ Sims2Artists
Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY. I used wallpapers and floors from this set.


FYI: Standard mods/programs I use whilst building/photo-ing/prepping a TS2 lot for upload...
- Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
- Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
- Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
- Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
- BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
- 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.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $39,714

Custom Content Included:
- InvisibleSmokeAlarm by pfish @ MTS2
- ValueIsland by MsBarrows @ MTS2

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
