Edit 3, 10 Feb, 2007: Found out what was wrong with the house... Thanks to SuSim (of the fabulous CatandSuSims.com!), I found out what caused my recolored walls and floors to not show up for some. In a nutshell, it's the new Pets patch. So, I'm going to try out one more theory, i.e., substitute base game only walls and floors for the ones that are reported missing, and see what happens.

To see the house with these changes, please visit the following links:

The cost has changed to: 24, 328 simoleons.

The original version is still available at my Esnips.com page:
http://www.esnips.com/web/msrsimstuffs

And yep, both versions were scanned/cleaned using Clean Installer.

Edit 2, 09 Feb 2007: I've had at least 2 reports about some of the walls and floors not showing up for some folks, so I'm going to upload another version which will be ready tomorrow night (10 Feb). If you aren't having a problem with the original download, then you don't have to grab the other version. Many apologies for the inconvenience! *blushes*

Edit 1: I just realized that in addition to OFB, the presence of the driveway means that Nightlife is also required. My apologies for this oversight in specifying which EPs are required for this lot.

Hi, thank you for downloading Lavender Lullaby. All I ask is that you don't upload this template file as your own, to The Sims 2 Exchange, this site, or any other site. However, if you put your personal stamp on it, I have no problems with you uploading your version of the home anywhere you like.

Lot Stats

Size: 2x2 (30x20)
Price: 22,653
Parking: Yes
EPs Required: Pets (One of the floor treatments I recolored came with Pets.), OFB (for the build elements), Nightlife (driveway).
Rooms: Living room, dining room, kitchen, 1 bathroom, 1 computer room/bedroom, 1 main bedroom. The rooftop is accessible via a stairway and can be used for parties or whatever your hearts desire. There's also room for a driveway extension or a small pool.
Zone: Residential
Furnished or Unfurnished: Unfurnished save for 5 Maxis light fixtures.

This lot is perfect for a bachelor/bachelorette or a childless couple, but it can also accommodate a couple with 1 child.

I've included photos of the house as it would look like when furnished --- decorating suggestions, so to speak. For the high-res versions of these photos, please visit:

Credits: I used Maxis objects to decorate this house for the decorating suggestions photos. I also used my own recolors of Maxis objects save for a couple like the quilt bedding and the white metal for the wall light in the living room (I don't know who made the recolored lights since it doesn't have its own GUID, hence there is no creator name, but the quilt bedding was made by Atelier Quebec. Thank you Jen, for letting me know!)

  • 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.

That's a beautiful house, and I love your decorating suggestions! It's nice to see someone use those OFB build items in such a tasteful way. And hey, I know where that bedding is from! It's one of my favorites -- from Atelier Quebec (http://pages.infinit.net/origami/At...uebec/home.html -- under Downloads --> Sims 2 --> Seating).

Thanks for sharing this house!
