Hello Ladies and Gentlesims

Your friendly neighborhood realty agent here again.

My favorite architect was so thrilled at how fast I turned over the last house he designed that he just handed this house over to me. It is virtually the same as the last one I was offering here except that it also ha an unfinished basement. Apparently the intended owner of this house was going to put a Swimming pool and a Dance Club in the basement but went bankrupt before the house was completed. So Marchbase Construction has offered it to me to offer up to you.

This house includes a huge Master Suite that is about 50% of the ground level floor space. It includes His and Her walk-in closets, His and Her vanities a Dual Head shower room bath and small Privy with it's own door for privacy in those oh so private moments. And to the rear of the house has it's very own tea room for when you just need to get away from everything.

The Dining room has been modernized with arches covering half the wall space for view of the rest of the house with it's own little patio to the front of the house for the parties and to help air out the place.

The Kitchen also has been modernised quite extensively, though the pantry has been kept for that quaint old time feel.

The Den near the 3 car garage has it's own closet and bathroom and could very easily be made into a guest or 4 bedroom if you choose.

Upstairs has three bedrooms of almost equal size, two bathrooms, and a play room. There is also a lovely balcony area into the foyer for ease of seeing people coming and going. The play room also opens up on it's own coverd balcony over looking the backyard.

The unfinished Basement has a bathroom and has been paritioned into two other spaces for it's original intended purposes and is now left for you to finish with whatever you chose to use it for.

Over all Breakdown:
Master suite
3 bedrooms
1 den
5.5 bathrooms
Living room
family room
dining room
kitchen
3 car garage
on a 5x4 lot

all this for only §181,143

Check out the photos and let me know what you think.
________________________________________________

Important
This lot has contains the Holy Smoke stairs made by Brasstex of MTS2 you will need to install 76BTX_Balustrade_steps from this link http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=71199 in order to use this house.

This house does not require The University Expansion pack but you will need to use The Sims2Pack Clean Installer to install it without EP1

There where enough people downloading the first house for me to go ahead an upload this one. The only reason this one was created was my roomate was complaining that she missed the dance club from her families original house that she had in the basement. I told her I would remake the house with a basement, and here it is.

This and all others I may upload are based on actual house floor plans and because of this I will include a photo of the original or artist conceptual drawing.

It has recently come to my attention that a lot of people are using real floor plans to create their sim houses. While I obviously don't have an issue with this, I do have an issue with it being done badly. And most of these are done really badly. If people like I will write a tutorial on converting real houses to The Sims 2 and step people through the more difficult areas of it.

Things that might make this house more enjoyable
because the garage and service court are the closest doors to the sidewalk sims have a tendency to use them as the front door and the enter and leave the house to correct this I suggest using the following items in any combination.

J.M.Pescado's Authorized Personnel Only Security System:
http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php?topic=78.0
I suggest this in the garage.

calakarad's Bamboozle Doors:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=131597
I suggest this on the service court garage door.

dolphin26's Antipedestrian Garage Door:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=117170
Can be used instead of the APO by J.M.Pescado

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sorry, Yes it does require Uni, and NL. I don't know if I could make one for you without Uni, alot of the good floors and wall coverings I use come from Uni. Besides I don't think I really want to uninstall Uni just to make a house.

If I get enough requests for it I will do it.

Are those blueprints online someplace. If so I could give it a shot for you. It shouldn't be to hard as these houses are made from real house blueprints.

It's kind of strange using real blueprints for these as you end up with closets that aren't really good for anything. So they will just be empty space in The Sims 2 or I will take the doors off and put a bookshelf in it.

I read your tute and I still don't get how you get the driveways and other stuff to turn. i did get the driveway extender to sit right at the edge of the lot by using move_objects on. Could you explain it in a bit more detail? thanks!

Rather than rehash what has been said here many times I will give you this: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=97102
Use this tutorial along withthe one at thesims2.ea.com

I think what happened is that the lot you tried it on was facing the wrong direction so when the driveway turned it was still facing the same way. They can face four different directions Normal, Left, Right, and backwards. And the direction of the driveway depends on the direction of the lot. Try what sotalia did in her post (link above) and you will see what I mean. It will all make alot more sense after that.
