This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Hello to All,

This is our new, basegame-compatible creation called the "Purdy Pergola", which comes in two sizes - 4x4 (16-tile footprint) and 5x5 (25-tile footprint). It was intended to be placed outside on the Sim's estate, but we knew that someone may want to do otherwise and that's okay, too. In addition to ground placement, it can be placed on a foundation and is the full height of a Maxis wall - three tiles high. By design, the four post tiles allow for another object to be placed there, in case you want to dress it up with some hedges or plants. It's perfect for an outdoor dining space, a cemetery, a wedding, a quiet game of chess or just a pretty spot in your Sim's garden - the possibilities are many! The sims can walk or sit under it, but they won't walk through the posts.

The textures used were made to match the Maxis wooden stairs featured in the basegame - the colours are Deck (default Brown Stairs), Chic, Green (Arboreal Stairs), Loft (Country Stairs) and Steadfast. They are all included in the mesh package for your convenience. The posts can be retextured separately for even more design choices!

We hope you enjoy using our Pergolas,
Debra and Michelle
