My Al Fresco design is a small house with an open-air dining room. Perfect for romantic starlit dining in the desert.
It features two bedrooms and two bathrooms, has a driveway with parking for one vehicle, and is built on a 2-Click Foundation with a No-Slope Basement.
With minimal CC.

Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. The house is fully furnished and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is located in the kitchen. The stove and grill both have smoke alarms. There may be a burglar alarm next to the fridge? Check for it before you play, and add it - if I forgot. (If you want a burglar alarm, that is.)

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.

There is parking for one vehicle on the driveway.

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Backless Cheap Shower and Tub/combo by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2

This lot was shrunk with Mootilda's Lot Adjuster
This lot's No-Slope Basement and 2-Click Foundation were made with Mootilda's Grid Adjuster
For a tutorial on how I built this lot: Tutorial: Using Grid-Adjuster for No-Slope Basements and 1-Click/2-Click Foundations

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)

Custom Content by Me:
- wallpaper - MM-SeasonsSunflowers

Custom Content Included:
- Simple Passage Modular Stairs by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!
- Torrox Staircase Balcony MASTER by moune999 @ MTS2
- Torrox Wall-Cutout Window Single by moune999 @ MTS2
- Hanging Purple Bougainvillea - originally from PS - fixed by HugeLunatic (HL) @ GoS

Lot Size: 1X2
Lot Price (furnished): $52,064

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 Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.
