Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
If your sims have been yearning for the combination of stripes and green living, this little hut is the perfect solution.

Not only is the house fully supplied with green energy, all discharge water is lead through the root zone system in the garden for natural cleansing.

The house is equipped with:
- kitchen with dining area
- living room with study space
- bed loft with bedroom and dressing room
- bathroom

The lot does not contain any UNI or SP items apart from MG, so you won't need those if you install with CleanInstaller.

  • 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.

jubylluba, the roof's easily done. All that's been used is the shed gabled roof. At the left side (from the front) the roofs been applied on the top of the house (3rd level), while at the other side I've started on top of the ground floor (2nd level). Then I've used the roof angle cheat to make it all line up.
