The Sallinger
4 bedrooms - 5 bathrooms (2 are half baths) - garage
- roof deck, porch, fishing pond -

6-Click Foundation with a No-Slope Basement)
~~~ Absolutely NO CC ~~~
This is a pet-friendly, pet-ready, and pet-tested home. Enjoy!

This is the original floorplan. I only had to make a few TS2 adjustments... like the step-up from the foyer to the main house - that didn't happen. I also added the no-slope basement. And, I really wanted to use that lovely flat roof as a deck. I hope your sims won't mind

Building this one really strained my brain But, I think I have a pretty good understanding of how the Grid-Adjuster works now (at least as far as foundations and split-level construction goes!) . Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster tool.
This lot was also shrunk with her Lot Adjuster - even though it is a standard sized lot (I started out on a bigger lot, cuz I wasn't sure...)

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 and grill both have a smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. Both levels have a telephone.

There is parking available for two vehicles: one in the garage, and one on the driveway.

Pet items are in place - specifically for a dog. Everything was thoroughly tested with my "Big Dog" tester, Seaphus. He much preferred sleeping on the Master bed, to sleeping in the doghouse. And his favorite bone was the one in the yard.

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.

Pictures were taken with the following item in place, but it is NOT included:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2

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.)

This lot is completely CC Free

Lot Size: 3X2
Lot Price (furnished): $115,451

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.

Thank you for the wonderful comments I am so glad you like this house!
Going "No CC" is so limiting - that's why I don't do it much. But, I know some of you really like it (and it makes uploading the lot soooo much easier!) So, if I can accomplish the lot without any CC, I will . Thank you for commenting
