This is a humble makeover of the Ranch Retreat from the lot bin, for personal use, but I like it enough to share. I have not changed the floor plan much, because the house works quite well as it is, but I did make the bathroom a bit bigger.

I wanted it to have a foundation, so I used CFE to make the original walls 4 clicks high, built new walls on them and then added a porch

I wanted to keep the lot at a starter price, so I used the LotAdjuster to shrink it by 10 tiles - 5 each side.

The house is not furnished, except for fixtures, but there is a burglar alarm and a fire alarm.

Some cc floors and walls were used and they are all included and all from MTS.

I do use some defaults in my game not needed for the lot to work:
Roof trims by Honeywell : https://modthesims.info/d/555318/a-...m-defaults.html
Ceiling Default Replacement by Honeywell : https://modthesims.info/d/564982/ce...eplacement.html
Concrete wall replacement by Maranatah : https://modthesims.info/d/470106/sm...placements.html
Wall top texture replacement by Maranatah : https://modthesims.info/d/443534/aw...ee-flavors.html
White Floor Edge Replacement by Feenwald

The lot now looks like this:

with a floor plan like this:

and a peak inside at the fixtures:

See all the before and after pictures.

The lot was cleaned with the tools by Chris Hatch and built in an empty hood. A copy of the lot was play tested and worked well.
