Tea House Ruins

Built by the fourth lord Asakura for his beloved concubine, Shiori, this small tea house still stands serene in the midst of its ruin. Although the beauty of its name has long been lost and the house itself has succumbed to nature’s wiles, sims yet perform the ancient tea ceremony in its waning shade.

Lot amenities are minimal -- two tea tables, shrine and small bathroom.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

I love all your lots, they are always unique!

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.
Coffee, anyone?

Wonderful! I was just responding to a post tonight about my neglectfulness in making a secret lot for my new vacation hoods. This will work perfectly for a Far East secret lot! It's also a beautiful community lot just as it is too. Thank you for sharing.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

Lovely and melancholic, with a sad atmosphere. Thank you,

Beautiful, and just a little creepy.

If it doesn't already have a lovely ghost haunting it, it needs one.

I am simply a mass hallucination that a majority of the population chooses to believe in.

I love your imagination! You can see a possibility where anyone can. Who else can build "ruined" lots which we all want in game as "ruined" as they are?
In addition, it shows a different approach in building Sims2 lots, thinking more to the project itself than to the conventional list of things and features that a lot should include, to be worth for playing. I totally second your vision.
Thank you! Kiss and ciao.

and the semi destroyed roof is brillant.

Beautiful and haunting. Is the tea included?

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

I have to say that I'm a huge fan of your recent lots. They're sooo detailed. Thanks so much!

Please do not re-upload my houses or Sims anywhere, even if it is just refurnished.

Thank you for your consideration.

This is so beautiful. I also love how you give most of your works a background and so much detail. Thank you! This is going to be a wonderful addition to my game.

This lot is just amazing! Maybe it wouldn't be so great if it weren't ruined.

This is an awesome download. Best of all the ruined wall custom content works well on your other ruins, minimizing the amount of custom wallpaper I need.
