Not a beach lot. Across the road from the beach. Where the soil is still so sandy that the grass is barely hanging on. Where the weather is so temperate that the doors stay open all year long...

What are the odds? I saw Huge Lunatic's fireplace and this house on the same day! So of course I had to try and see just how close I could get to the rest of the house. The answer was, pretty darn close with a ridiculous amount of CC which is why this has been lingering in my to-do folder for ages.

I couldn't resist posting side-by-side comparison shots but most of the clutter, deco, art, etc. has been removed. You do not need Ikea to play this lot. If you see something you would like to have, there will be a link to it under Additional Credits. Check the "Wallsdown" pics to view your playable lot.

That still leaves 58 files so there is also a low CC version reduced to 21 essential files. I replaced the furniture with Maxis versions so your lot will be immediately playable and you can check the "LowCC" pics for that view.

As always the Maxis recolors didn't pull with the lot file so they are included in a folder in the .zip. Place in your downloads folder before installing the lot:
Invisble Driveway by roddyaleixo
Mini Shelf red recolor by Gwenke33
Design Kit white recolor (needed so the cutout doesn't flash blue) by Fat D

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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 keep being told that the house requires expansion packs that I don't have, but I have them all installed except for Garden and Mansion Stuff, which I don't see listed as necessary! What's going on?

Very Nice! I don't have all expansion packs otherwise this one would end up in the house bin. Good Job!

Great work! This house looks fantastic and so close to the original. You should be proud!

bubbajoe! It's amazing how close your house is to the original. I really enjoyed the comparison pictures. This is just outstanding! So glad you're building Sims2 stuff again!

My apologies, Mansions and Gardens is required and that box has now been checked. I always think of it as an EP and I knew I had checked all the EP boxes.

I have just downloaded and installed both versions, using the Clean Installer, with no problems.

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!
