Suburban Colonial
Moving to the burbs? This pet friendly, fully furnished, large-ish house, on a smaller lot, for under $100K, may be just what you need!
It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, parking for 2 cars, a fireplace, grill patio, both front and back porches, and a home theater.
The lot has been Grid-Adjusted for a 2-Click Foundation (Thank you Moo!) And built with minimal CC .








Please scroll through all the above pictures to see everything this house has to offer. The house is lightly furnished and decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove, grill, and fireplace, all have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. The telephone is centrally located on the living room wall.

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 two vehicles on the driveway.

This is a pet-friendly build. Pet items are not included, but there is ample space for them - and the downstairs tub is accessible for dog washing.
There are invisible stairs (HL's SimplePassageModularStairs) on both the front and back porches that will allow Large Dogs access to the house.

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
And, I also recommend HL's Backless Tub/Shower combo for the upstairs bathroom.

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 Included:
- Simple Passage Modular Stairs by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these require a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!
- Colonial Window w/Shutter - 1T & 2T by Honeywell (HW) @ Tumblr
- Colonial Window - Short by Leesester/LeeFish @ MTS2
- Fireplace Moroccan - without chimney by mia86 @ MTS2


Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price (furnished): $92,573


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.

Hi, I've downloaded probably about 20 of your houses now (I intend to go through them all) and I wanted to tell you how incredible every single one has been!
At first I was like NO CC!!!!!!! ONLY GET THE CC FREE!!!! But then, I caved, and I was like "okay fine anything from HugeLunatic because I trust them. BUT NOTHING ELSE!!" And then, I caved again, "Okay fine anything from Honeywell because I trust them too...BUT NOTHING ELSE!!!" Makes me wonder who's gonna be next

LOL I'm glad you like my builds - I have a lot of fun "building" them .
I try to use a little CC as possible - especially starting with my 1920's Series last year. Some of my earlier builds though, Yikes! *shudder* CC overkill
...I have gone back and redone several of the very first ones to remove all the CC (they are clearly marked with a big ol' "2020Redux" sign,) but there are a lot more that still need fixing! I'd rather just build something new

Anyway - thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it!
