You know when you visit a modern suburban development and the lots are squashed together?

Well even if they're sort of boring to look at, I feel like such basic and narrow lots are quintessential to the modern suburb. Grey Matter 2 is the second in a pair of bland, matching homes that work perfectly as gap fillers in your neighbourhood. Drop 'em between two bigger, better looking houses and hide all that pesky nature and green space.

This house is not an exact mirror of Grey Matter 1, but they were designed with some similar characteristics: two-storey foyer, open living, dining and kitchen, and a small yard. Grey Matter 2 has one more bedroom than its partner, as well as a larger back yard and basement. The furniture is very basic, but will comfortably house up to seven Sims.

More to come soon in my New Build Series, possibly including more narrow gap-fillers like this one. Enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Sorry everyone, here's the issue with these houses: I uploaded Grey Matter 1 and Grey Matter 2 really close together. GM2 was approved quickly, and GM1 needed some tweeks before it could be made available. Unfortunately since then I've had serious issues with my computer and have not been able to make those fixes to GM1. But my computer is back in working order, and I plan on making those tweeks shortly. Thanks!
