Lot Information:
This is a beautiful modern contemporary residential by MTS creator Chax for TS4. I love it so much I converted it to TS3 with permission. I've always liked modern buildings and designs, but this one really caught my attention and I've learned a lot from it that I incorporated some of the styles into my design mindset. Particularly I am a very digital and logical thinker, where everything must be OCD put in order. I was very interested in the abstract interior decorations, placing chairs/seats off grid etc... However, there are still limitations to my OCD, such as having the same furniture types and colors/textures in the same room etc...

This residential is listed as 4 BR and 4BA. However, I never have a need for that much bedrooms, so I converted the downstair bedroom into a private gym, spa, and sauna, leaving 3 BR on the top floor. If you like to convert it back, this bedroom looks identical to the one upstairs right above it. I still listed this as 4 BR, b/c I left the walk-in closet in the design so it doesn't look like a remodel, simply rearrangement to the room like you would in real life.

I don't remember why I placed the lot on such a weird lot size. The building has some empty space in the back. I left it blank for your convenience if you want to use it to match the locale you wish to place it such as - a desert, a forest, or if you have a horse, you can build a small ranch.

Hope you will enjoy this as much as I have.

Lot Size: 47x36
Lot Price (furnished): 201217
Lot Price (unfurnished): 29187

Chax never uploaded her finished version, so I do not have one to post the comparison. I only have an unfinished floor plan from her 1st floor to compare.

EP List:
Listed EPs are what I have, though not necessarily needed. This is a residential, so you really only need basegame, all other objects are optional and will be replaced if you do not have them. The only one that will make a major difference is the glass ceiling/roof for the outdoor patio, you will need ITF.

CC List:
Store Objects: Completely optional. They're for functionality, if you don't have it, you simply won't have these functions.
* Chun Co. Teppanyaki Grill - TS3 Store (Link) One in the kitchen and one in the patio.
