190 Sims Lane - Maxis Remodel

*sigh* Something HAD to be done. The twins were going to morph into children any minute now! Where shall we put them? And, we've no place to park the mini-van! The plumbing downstairs leaks. The roof is full of holes. I can't see anything in this blasted dingy kitchen - AND it's also too small...

Instead of answering, Jake just picked up the phone and started dialing...

Cat to the rescue! The Masons really liked their (almost French Provencial) Colonial Styled home in Pleasantview, it was just too small for their growing family. So, Cat widened the house by 2 tiles - which also made room for a nicer front door. Then she added a carport off the family room, ripped out the leaky downstairs bathroom,and made the kitchen a bit bigger and brighter.





Upstairs, she turned the kid's bedroom (one loooong room!) into two smaller bedrooms, and added a study nook to the upstairs landing. The Master Suite now has a full closet; and the balcony door matches the front door just beneath it.





The back patio and landscaping was kept pretty much the same; the hole-y roof was, of course, completely redone.




Please see more before/after shots by scrolling through the pictures above.
Needless to say, the Masons were absolutely thrilled! I hope you will be too

This was built to replace house number 190 Sims Lane, in Pleasantview - but, of course, you can put it wherever you'd like. Mrs Mason insisted on theming the twin's new bedrooms in those [garish] pink and blue wallpapers. Please change those out, as you see fit.
Also - the fire alarm is invisible, and located over the range. The burglar alarm is in plain sight right next to the front door. And there are wall-phones on each level.

Remodeling all the Maxis houses was all I did for the first couple of years I had the Sims2! I love what you did with this one, expecially the curving line where the carpet and wood meet. It looks so much better than just straight. By the way, I played Mahjong for more than an hour and I can never win, blah!

Hi Rena - I glad you like it! That chair is Maxis. The default/catalog picture shows it as a turquoise-y blue. But, I think the white recolor is standard issue Please let me know if you have any further questions/problems!
