I really liked this plan when I found it. I liked the look and feel of it, and loved that it had a simple layout that could be easily modified for Sims play. But I've never been happy with the chimney and shed roof, both of which have minds of their own and think it's all about them. But once inside, the open plan and the abundance of light and space makes you forget all about the facade. This is a house for indoor living!

I first played it as an abandoned post-apocalyptic house (a community lot) where one of my Sims liked to hang out. When I was cleaning it up to share here at MTS, I realized I'd have to at least play-test it to make sure it wouldn't have any problems as a residential lot. I'd never play-tested before (I usually just play), but I had a townie Sim, Jill Fleig, who I'd made playable and thought would do. After I moved her in and cleaned her up, I liked her enough to want to one day find her a home of her own. But on her second day in the house, a co-worker set her up on a blind date with Junior Broke (Brandi Broke's youngest child, the one she's pregnant with when you begin playing her). Junior had only just begun college and was much younger than Jill, but... Well, sparks flew, lightening struck, and the two fell hopelessly in love. It was totally unexpected, but then, that's life.

Junior eventually graduated from college and moved in with Jill. Here they were married with all their family and friends in attendance. Here they met all their career dreams and goals. Here their first child was born. And here they still live, destined for a life of happily ever after. I mention these things only because I named the house after Jill. She made it all her own.

It's a 2BD/2BA home with a shared living and dining area, a large kitchen, and a garage. There's no pool, but there's room for a jacuzzi. The master bedroom is wonderfully spacious. So is the master bath. And the second bedroom is large enough for two children.

Something I especially like about this house is that after parking the car in the garage, Sims will enter the house through the kitchen door, which is exactly what they're supposed to do.

Enjoy!
