Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Well, after going for quite a long time without playing TS2, I've built another house! For once, I didn't copy a floorplan or front elevation--I designed it myself, how about that. Heh. I was inspired by prairie style homes by Frank Lloyd Wright--no particular one.

This home features a double garage, large open plan kitchen/dining/living area, study, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, and a games room with a large skylight on the ground floor.

Upstairs there is ample hobby space, a small gym, and the master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite.

Outside there is a BBQ area and a pool. The pool doesn't work due to the placement of the ladder & diving board... I liked the shape of the pool so I didn't bother making it useable, but you can easily change it to make it useful.

The car isn't included, I just put it there because I love the Chrysler 300 and thought it looked spiffy outside my house. It can be downloaded here.

You will need to download the following items for this lot to work:

- KitchenBasic set by Buggybooz

- Gruth Modern Stairs by ulmille

- Giggly Grasses by Buggybooz

- Venetian Blinds by Shoukeir

- Community Project Ash Tree by Murano

- AL recolours for the sliding door, front door and basic white interior door. Sorry, forgot to add this originally! Found under downloads/Maxis recolors/build mode/doors.

Optional downloads:

- White Roof Trim Defaults

- Repository Fix for Ektorp Sofa - Optional, but necessary for matching sofas.

Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks, glad you enjoy it. But comments like "this should be featured" are against site rules. I do appreciate the sentiment, though.
