This is the "IKEA House" that Maxis gave us with that Stuff Pack. It featured a small - quasi-shotgun style house - with 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. It is quite liveable the way it is... but... I just had to make it better (IMHO!)

So now, without further ado - may I present to you:
The New and Improved Efficient Edifice

Please scroll through all the pictures to see everything this house has to offer. Besides adding the basement, second story bedroom, driveway, and yard/exterior improvements, I also updated the kitchen appliances (which now include a dishwasher and microwave), added fire alarms (one under the range hood in the kitchen and another by the outdoor grill), added a burglar alarm by the front door, and included computer desks in two of the bedrooms.

This is a clean copy if the lot - no Sim has set foot in it. The lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Everything your Sim will need is included. As was the original version, this house is decorated with mostly IKEA items. Enjoy!

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Backless Tub/Shower and the Cheap Shower by HL @ MTS2
Invisible Driveway by SophieDavid @ MTS2
You will also need: Anoeska's MMF AL Spiral Stairs in your game. Though they are not used on this lot. These are mirrored versions of the Maxis Spiral stairs, and they include a change which allows sims to walk under all the spiral stairs - which is necessary to get to the top floor bedroom.

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 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
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.

Lot Size: 3x2
