Grey Goose

Each apartment has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a loft family room, a private patio with grill and picnic table, and a driveway
The apartments are not identical, but very similar - the color schemes are subtly different
They are built on a 1-Click Foundation with a No-Slope Basement
Featuring a comfortable contemporary design; and are technically CC-Free
Pets welcome!
Rent = $3,036

The name, contrary to what you might be thinking :pint: , actually came about due to my daughter's recently completed (STEM) Aviation Class. It's a long-shot I know, but it's how my brain works - the Spruce Goose - big wooden airplane - big wooden building - blue/grey wood - Grey Goose. See?

They are pet-friendly Pet beds and food bowls are included. Litter boxes are out in the garden. Doggie baths will either need a cheat (move the toilet bowl out of the room during the bath) or an Outdoor Dog Bath (like that one by Michelle/MTS2) to get the job done properly.

Please scroll through all the pictures to see everything these apartments offer. This lot has been play-tested; everything is accessible and in good working order. Phones are by the stairs on the main level, and by the desk in the basement. Smoke alarms are over stoves and grills. Burglar alarms by front doors.

Note the words of wisdom in the picture below: Do not delete the "Great Divide" edger.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.

There is parking for two vehicles, one on each driveway. Remember - if you want to have a car available (and it will be a 'community' car - usable by any resident) you must place it in the driveway before moving in your first sim.

Important INFO about this Build
This is a CC-Free build except for one item - the SimplePassageModularStairs by HugeLunatic, MUST be included. They are the only thing that allows the 1-click foundation to work. Without these stairs there is no way anyone can enter the house. *silly sims*

Thank you Mootilda - for the GridAdjuster tool, which allows us to make 1-click/2-click Foundations and No-Slope Basements.

Pictures were taken with the following items in place, but they are NOT included:
- Invisible Smoke Alarm by pfish @ MTS2
- Invisible Driveway by Sophie-David @ MTS2
- Backless Tub/Shower combo & Cheap Shower by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2
- KARLSTAD loveseat by Huge Lunatic (HL) @ MTS2

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)

Custom Content Included:
- Simple Passage Modular Stair by HugeLunatic (HL) @ Sims2Artists - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!

Lot Size: 2X2
Lot Price (furnished): $111,630
Rent: (furnished) $3,036

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.
