Here we have John Mole's house: the floorplan has been redesigned, a second bedroom and a powder-room added, the pool enlarged,
and the roof fixed. All done while maintaining the integrity of the original EAxis/Desiderata Valley house (I hope!)

The color scheme is still predominantly black and white. The furnishings are still modern... and, John's prized telescope is right where he left it!
However, the bathroom and kitchen have flipped places. The kitchen's appliances were upgraded and a counter height dining island added. The bathroom has lost it's tub - but the new shower is top-of-the-line! The Master bedroom, though basically the same, feels a little less cramped, and the added second bedroom, though tiny, is perfectly livable. Please scroll through the pictures above to see all the improvements.

The above picture shows what you see when entering the house.

Security is a top priority for John - so, there is a new security system, with the newest, fastest internet/wifi/cable/phone lines all freshly installed. Outside in back, besides the telescope, there is a chess-table, exercise machine, easel, grill, and dining table. The pool has been widened and a few extra lounge chairs added. A second gate has also been added off the side of the driveway.
John absolutely loves his new house! Now, when he meets the "right" one, he can easily settle down and start a family - without any worries!

Please note: No sim has ever lived here. This is a clean copy.
If you want to replace John's original house with this one - you will have to move him out first. Make sure he has enough money to afford the new place! (His new digs cost $54,394 simoleans) Then bulldoze the original, replace it with this version, and move him back in

Necessary, and NOT included - GO get them:
Sophie-David's Invisible Driveway
Numenor's Unlevel Wall - #90 (only necessary if walls are missing - it means I used the unlevel wall instead of "CFE" while building. If walls are missing, exit without saving and add Numenor's Unlevel Wall to your DL folder before loading this house again)
And, I highly recommend:
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix

Lot Size: 2x2

Pretty! I especially like how you squeezed in an extra room.

This makes me want to play John Mole Never cared about him much before. Maybe some alien abduction or robot romance... hmm.

I love the kitchen island! Is that counters? May I ask how you did that? Love the house by the way!

Oh, Anne, you made me LOL - for real
Yes, those are counters - 4 of them back to back with the aid of Honeywell's island dummy
There's an unavoidable whole in the center... hence the slightly floating plant/centerpiece. I usually do this for an outdoor table, and stick the umbrella in the hole - it's great for 'tiki' bars etc.

I'm so glad I could show you something new!

I must commend you on the redesign. The place is actually liveable and guests can be entertained much better.
This house made me nuts when I first played Desiderata Valley. I just moved him out! Then I noticed he still wouldn't change his clothes so I deleted him too. Now I'm playing the Origin version of the game and haven't even checked him out to see if he works. Enough rambling, though. I'm love the redesign.
