If you flip through all the pictures above, you'll see what I've changed... I wanted to keep it as close to what EAxis originally made - but - have it also be a bit more playable and aesthetically pleasing to my taste anyways! LOL!

Come on in! (Uuhm, take your shoes off at the door please...) *wink*

...and the outdoors has some nice space to relax - while you watch the neighbors run their obstacle course. Again.

This is a copy - no sim has set foot on this lot. It has been tested for routing/play-ability issues. There is a smoke alarm, burglar alarm, telephone, PC, and everything else your sim will need.

NOTE: If walls are missing when you first visit the lot, exit without saving and add Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 to your DL folder before loading this house again. Sometimes I use this wall instead of the CFE cheat when building houses.

The Backless shower by HugeLuantic & hokadk47 @ Sims2Artists - is slaved to JonesiBedBlanket by Jonesi/BPS. Get it HERE
...and you'll want some good basic recolors too. I suggest these by Amythestfenix @

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 Moi's Roof Shader
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Numenor's AnyGameStarter/AGS

I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.

Lot Size: 2x4
Lot Price (furnished): $113,102

The link to Carina Spotlight stairs is wrong (the link should end in download number 195622 not 19562222).

Great job on the house!

IMHO - I made a really cool Specter remodel (very Mediterranean with a courtyard, arches all around, and a moat/pool with windows into a cavernous basement area) But, alas, with all the graves, I don't want to upload it. I'd hate to cause problems in anyone's game!
