This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
7/17/2020 Updated the HW_BespokeBuildSet file. The new file includes updates to all of the objects with the rd prefix. (They should all allow person and roof intersection, be quarter tile placeable and not cast outdoor shadows now). The updated zip also includes the 6 new colors I added and Shastakiss's door updates for apartments.
5/22/2020 Shastakiss updated the 2 tile French Doors and the 2 tile arch to work with Apartment Lots.
Note 10/30/2018 The 1 on 2 tile, 2 tile and 3 tile arches and the 2 tile french doors can't be used on apartment lots. You'll get an invalid apartment notification when you try and change the lot zoning. Why that happens I do not know but it does.
Update 7/23/2018 Updated the wallmasks on the short windows.
Fixed 7/17/2018 Updated the files to fix a GUID conflict with the Oaktown Door. If you downloaded before 7/17 you can delete and re-download the Bespoke Build Set for the fix or download the individual file from Sim File Share and allow it to overwrite the HW_doorExterior_Single-1t_diagonal package. Sorry for the inconvenience.



ROOF RECOLORS made compatible with Niol's roof shaders by simsllama.

I like to build the mix of houses you'd find in the typical American suburb (often from house plans) so this set doesn't faithfully follow any particular build style. It's a nice, versatile set of windows, doors and miscellaneous bits and pieces suitable for the houses I like to build. I tried to keep the info as to the point as possible. Hopefully I conveyed everything you need to know but maybe not. If you have any questions please ask.

INSPIRATION: So much about this set is the result of the Sims 2 community it felt wrong not to acknowlege that in a small way. I've used pheonix_pharie's Modern Georgian Manor set for absolutely ages and think it's just about perfect so this set was heavily influenced by theirs. Nysha and Raynuss both came out with really nice sets when I was actively making these so they had an influence. Not to mention Lee who introduced me to the wonders of centered windows and doors, MLC for her lovely porch sets, fansee who once wanted columns that hid in cutaway view, ekrubynaffit who was looking for blue roof trim once upon a time, and more recently Peni Griffin who's posts made me go back and make sure as much of this set as possible could be used without cheats.

Polygon Counts:
Generally low to average. The gingerbread and flower boxes are comparatively high and worth taking note of but nothing is outrageous. See post for exact counts.
