My Maxis Makeover #66 ~ Bin House Bonny Bungalow (check out the other 65 remodels in my MTS profile)
- now with 5B/4B/garage, attic, no-slope basement, on a 1-click foundation. Fully furnished. ONLY 1 CC.

The five bedrooms include three Master Suites - one set up for the 'parents', one set up for the 'grandparents', and one set up for an older teen/college-aged.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. The house is fully furnished and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. Telephones are located in the kitchen, and basement hallway. The front door is burglar alarmed. The stove and grill have smoke alarms.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.

There is parking for two vehicles: one on the driveway, and one in the garage.

This is technically a "No CC" build. But, 1-click Foundations must have HL's SimplePassageModularStairs to allow everyone up on the lowered foundation and get inside. Thank you, HugeLunatic for these stairs!

Thank you Mootilda - for the GridAdjuster tool, which allows us to make 1-click/2-click Foundations and No-Slope Basements.

I wrote up a tutorial explaining how I built this house - Tutorial: Using Grid-Adjuster for No-Slope Basements and 1-Click/2-Click Foundations - go check it out and DIY .

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2
- Otto's Bookcase by Glalique From the EA Store Nouveaulicious Set @ GoS

...and I highly recommend swapping out the in-game Chic Stairs for HL's Recolorable & Open-Underneath versions.

Custom Content Included:
- Simple Passage Modular Stairs by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): $114,735

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 Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
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.

Thank you EAxis for this wonderful game
