Bravo House ~ Dutch RowHouses
Inspired by RL pictures from South Holland
Single Family Homes
Meant to be placed seamlessly side-by-side for a Row House effect like the cover picture implies.
This is a set of 3 houses - the 'End' houses have slightly different outer/end-of-row wall design.

5 bedroom - 2.5 bathroom - courtyard - garage
- walled garden - pet friendly -

~~~ No CC ~~~

Enjoy!
The inspiration comes from images sent to me by Johnny_Bravo here on MTS. (Thank you!)







These houses are lightly furnished with in-game content (more as placeholder furniture, then anything!) I plan to CC-it-up once I get it into my main game - I hope you will have fun redecorating to suit your simmies tastes and desires. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stoves, grills, and fireplaces have smoke alarms. Front doors are burglar alarmed. There are telephones on the 1st and 3rd floors.

Each of the three houses is exactly the same inside. The only differences are the outer 'End' walls - with garage doors and gates.

Each house has parking for one vehicle, in the garage. Because the driveway is turned, cars will teleport to the road.

This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them, bath tubs are accessible for dog washing.

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.

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.)


No Custom Content Included

Lot Size: Lot-Adjusted to 3X1
Lot Price (furnished): $76,843 - $79,108 (Price difference is due to garage doors and side gates on the "End" houses.)


Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Lot Adjuster tool - used to make this RowHouse lot.

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 Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
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
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!

NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)

Number of bedrooms: 5 or more
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • 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. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

It may say Dutch, but this is also a common design ("shed style") near me in BC, Canada So thank you! I really enjoy this style IRL and with some siding applied it'd fit right in.
