House on the Slope
2-Click foundation on a Sloped Lot
based on RL Haus am Hang in Stuttgart, Germany
4 bedroom - 3.5 bathroom - carport - fishing pond
- pet ready - outdoor kitchen - exercise room - sauna - hot tub - office -

~~~ Minimal CC: the Metro Window Set, PG Glass Door, and my Bamboo Siding ~~~

I found the original design on-line through MVRDV.

"The house is really straightforward but it offers a very interesting experience, especially when you come in, you are really surprised to look down all the way, and it sort of has a view through the house along the slope," adds the architect.

Please enjoy touring the rest of this house by scrolling through the above pictures.

This house is furnished. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove and grill have smoke alarms. The front door is burglar alarmed. A telephone is on each level. NOTE: This is a sloped lot!

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 one vehicle in the carport.

This is a pet-ready build. There is a litter-box and scratching tree in the Laundry Room, a food dish in the Dining Area, a bird cage on the Middle Level, and the bathtubs are accessible for dog washing. NOTE: Large dogs will use the side entrance, as they cannot access the 2-Click foundation along the front, or through the carport.

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 - listed under the 'Information' tab above...

Lot Size: Grid-Adjusted 30X30
Lot Price (semi-furnished): $164,840

Thank you, Mootilda for the awesome Grid Adjuster used to make this 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*)

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

I may never use this, but I wanted to say that I love the detail and fidelity to the original. You do wonderful work.

Hehe. I noticed you added a bunch of street lights after make the comparison screenshots. And there are a lot of that. The least selling point of this is its slope. Have fingers crossed for users that would not make lot trim to tear when they place it.

Thank you @Morgan Smith and Karen - I'm so glad you like it

Yes Vic - those lights were actually on the house first, then I took the picture and realized that the lights detracted from the comparison so I redid the shot without them. The other shots of the outside of the building show the lights quite clearly.

Rest assured - I moved this house all around the neighborhood (as I do, esp for sloped lots!) and there was no tearing in my game.
I'm sorry you don't like the slope - as a person who lives on a sloped lot in RL - I am happy to build for "realism"

I am always so thrilled with how you can build into slopes - it's a talent I've yet to perfect. Thank you again for an awesome lot!
