The real house, on which my lot is based, was originally designed as a pump station (which really never worked). Now it has become a modern vacation house, some pipes are left as a decoration, though. Living room was the big hall with pumps, but garage was the room for electrical transformers. The real house is built on an artificial island and has a great view of the sea. I didn’t have the actual house plans; I made this lot only from pictures.
House has 2 floors (built on a foundation – so you can add a basement), it has furnished living room with kitchen and dining area, master bedroom with bathroom and a balcony and of course garage and private beach. House has got free space, too – use it for children rooms (study, bedroom, bathroom for each child as in the real house) or whatever you like.

Lot Title: The Old Pump Station
Lot Size: 4x5 (beach lot; suitable neighborhood – Twikki Island)
Lot Price: 162,705
Lot Played/tested: Yes
Furnished: Yes
Compatibility: Requires all EPs up to and including Free Time. I’ve also used some objects from Family Fun, Glamour Life, Teen Style and Kitchen & Bath Interior Design (bathroom is almost completely furnished with K&B stuff) SPs , but if you don’t have some of them just use Clean Installer to install lot.

P.S. To join up sofa requires Inge's sectionalsofa patch (download at your own risk, works fine in my game, if don't do that, will lose 2 couches). If you have Shaklin's sectionalsofa patch, you'll have to remove that from your downloads folder in order for this to work.

Custom Content required, but NOT Included:
- Japanese Irori (fireplace) by Reica15 at MTS2
- Invisible Driveway & Extensions by roddyaleixo at MTS2
- Adam’s Pipe by Mazerwolff at MTS2
- Tornado Solid Steel Fence in black by HoneyB at MTS2

Before installing lot, install modular fireplace (Irori) and put files you downloaded and files from folder I’ve included in rar archive in your downloads folder. That folder contains custom content which didn’t package with the lot - diagonal (so you can use doors and windows from my lot in your other lots) and master meshes (no blue-flashing objects) and recolours for windows and doors by Lethe_s and Tiggy027 at MTS2.

How nifty! Very different. You're lucky to live in the real thing.
