Here's a relatively affordable family home that has a pretty practical layout and is spacious enough for large, multi generational families. There's room for lots of activities and can be as luxurious as you want to make it.

The lot uses a fair amount of build mode cc. I went with cc for the landscaping because I like it of course but also for performance reasons - there's a ton of it - and the poly counts on the cc I used are a fraction of the Maxis flowers and shrubs. There are three orchard trees and room for 15 garden plants around the pool so with that in mind I kept the decorative landscaping that needs to be tended to a minimum.

It's a new house so it hasn't been playtested extensively but I played for several hours already and it's been fun. The lot has never been occupied and was compressed/cleaned of Sim references.

IT'S YOUR HOUSE NOW, DO WHAT YOU WANT BUT...

A basketball hoop fits perfectly at the end of the driveway, the covered porch is great for chess or a game table, the side patio off of the dining room is for grilling, there's a spot under the balcony for a hot tub and a telescope on the balcony works great.

I didn't include them because all together they pushed the cost of the house up over 100k and I wanted this house to be affordable for more of my families but when I playtested the lot I had all of those activities placed. I also use Mootilda's Constant Temperature for All Sims so my Sims can stay outside all day without issue.

I posted a couple of WIP pics of this house in different colors on my tumblr. If you liked those better the yellow was Bluff from my exterior walls & the others are from the Bespoke set.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Gorgeous house Honeywell, thank you. Unfortunately when I click on it to install (having unzipped it), it comes up with Directory Name Invalid I'm sure the file is fine but not sure why I am getting this error message :S

I'm sorry, I don't know what the problem could be. The only thing I can think to suggest is re-downloading in case something got corrupted. If that doesn't work maybe someone on the forums will have had this happen before and have a solution?

I like how your houses look but having to have CC in them is a no no for me.

There's so much new and existing content we're spoiled for choice - it's good to be choosy! I really like this house and was so happy to share it, thank you for the nice comments.

thanks for this house. I always like an open layout. I also like the extra space upstairs for crafts or stay over guests.
