This lot is the result of three things:
  • my endless fascination with homes built from shipping containers
  • celebrating getting Sims2 working on my new computer with Windows8
  • an excuse to do something with bozlove's retro tile set

Inspired by this house, I bring you the Sim version of Containers of Hope.



A super-clean, super-playable lot with crisp, appealing visuals and plenty of room to customize. The two bedroom, one bath layout sleeps 4 with a flex room that could be used for a nursery, office, or gym.

As always, the Maxis recolors did not pull with the lot file so they are included in a folder in the .zip. If you would like to keep them, place in your Downloads folder before installing the lot:
Michelle's counter recolor,
Escape Bedding-Citrine, an unreleased bedding by me,
Bistro table and chair recolors by me.

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: 33,159

  • 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.

Yah, make them for all of us

Can't wait to see. The Simverse needs more recycled living.

In the meantime, here is a link to another of my favorite ecohouses.

hey, please could you check the link for the Krampft Industries Value Cabinet Kitchen Island by RgdyAnne, cos I couldn't find it at the link given. Thank you

Thank you for correcting the link

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!
