Mercury: MM640M
This is a Mark Stewart design.
2 bedrooms - 1 bathrooms - driveway
- large back yard - pet friendly -

~~~ Only 1 CC used: Armiel's Floor/Roof Edger ~~~


The brochure says: (Quote [edited by me] from the Mark Stewart website.)
Small Shed Roof House Plan
This shed roof small house plan offers huge living in under 650 square feet. Mercury has all of the curb appeal of a much larger modern home in a compact package that can fit on a huge variety of lots.
...With the Mercury small home design there is enough room for two gathering spaces; or a traditional living room and a large dining room table. The kitchen itself has more than enough storage space. The smaller bedroom doubles as an office. The master bedroom of this modern small home plan is completely outfitted with a walk-in closet and queen sized bed. The bathroom is tucked privately around the corner. Note the large covered outdoor living area out the back door.

For those of you who like comparing the original house plan to what I have built in TS2 - please note that the glossy brochure depicts the backside of the house - with the large picture windows on the left, opening to the living room area, and the sliding doors into the Master Bedroom on the right.
The 'Mechanical' room has been changed to a WC with access from the bathroom. I also moved the kitchen to a different wall... besides it working better this way for sim traffic flow, the switch allowed me to put in bigger windows along the front. There is still room for a large entertainment center on the side wall, if you wish to add one.

Please enjoy touring the rest of this design by scrolling through the above pictures. I hope you have a small sim family who will enjoy living here.

This house is lightly furnished and decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove and grill have a smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. The telephone is by the front door.

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 one vehicle in the driveway.

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them, the tub is accessible for dog washing.

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.)

Custom Content Included
- TS3 Roof Edger/fence by Armiel @ MTS2 - converted to TS2 by Sofya @ Blogspot

Lot Size: 2X2
Lot Price (furnished): $34,882

Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster tool - used to make this lot.

NOTE: I use HL's Tweaked SweetDownLow to add shiftablilty and stop items from turning dark when they are shifted down. So - if pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights have 'jumped' out of place when you install one of my lots - just click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)

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 Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
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
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
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.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
And Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
