A companion lot for my 3to2 Craftsman Cabin:

This is a 2-story, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom residential lot with a bonus room that could be made into another bedroom.. or any type of room you’d like. Lot Size: 3x2 * Lot Price: 80,836 Simoleons

Made with: NL, OFB, Seasons, FT, AL, BV, M&G; K&B, FFS, Ikea installed. A copy was play tested, a couple of issues were noted: those issues were fixed and now everything works as it should.

Credit to: leefish, buggybooz, alleliua, MaryLou, JRW, CTNutmegger, Gwenke, threadandsandpaper, Holy Simoly, HugeLunatic, Michelle, Nengi65, Trapping, Raynuss, Numenor, Medinaquirin, iCad, uleishi and jeka for the CC used and included. You all rock! There are also a few things by me. :) (Credit list is included in the download!)

To avoid flashing blue repositoried meshes: Holy Simoly’s Elegant Curtain MASTER; Mustluvcatz’ MASTER Craftsman Column

NOTE: I didn’t include the stair recolor I used because I simply didn’t know which one it was. You can get all of the recolors (from the set I have) HERE by alleliua. They’re awesome and if you don’t have them, you should! Also, I have defaults installed for some of the Maxis curtains and the wall top. If you don’t have those same defaults installed, the curtains and wall top may look different for you!

NOTE 2- The most important thing of all: CUSTOM TERRAIN PAINTS were used! You MUST install these- if you don’t want them, or like them, remove them from the lot in game with the terrain paint tool and save the lot. It should be okay to delete the terrain paints from your download folder after that.

Almost done. :) I’m having a hard time choosing wallpapers for the inside though since I’m trying to stick to Maxis stuff for the inside. (There’s more than enough CC outside, lol.)

I think the round windows look better than the windows I had there- but: am I wrong in thinking that there are recolors of the “paper” part somewhere?

Hmmmmmm.. it looks like I liked the other lot well enough to do it again. :) This one is smaller, even if it doesn’t look all that small. There may be more- there’s this road in my neighborhood that’s perfect for this house, the other one and 1 or 2 more.

edit: lol @ the driveway.. oops! How did I not notice that it was in the wrong spot? Fixed!

DONE!!! This is my TS2 version of stonee206’s TS3 lot @ MTS.

This is a 2-story, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom residential lot with a garage and a bonus room. (The bonus room could easily be made into another bedroom if needed.) Lot Size: 3x3 * Lot Price: 93,984 Simoleons

Made with: NL, OFB, Seasons, FT, AL, BV, M&G; K&B, FFS, Ikea installed.

A copy was play tested and all works as expected with no issues!! Note: I made the upstairs hall wider to avoid stompy feet. You could probably make it 1-tile all around to make the rooms a tile bigger. (Especially that long, narrow bedroom.)

NOTE: I didn’t include the stair recolor I used because I simply didn’t know which one it was. You can get all of the recolors (from the set I have) HERE by alleliua. They’re awesome and if you don’t have them, you should! There are also 2 recolors of the door I used included.. once again, I didn’t know which one it was! (No preview in CI for any of these recolors.)

NOTE 2: I have defaults installed for some of the maxis curtains (different creators, not sure which at the moment) and the wall top (marantah), if you don’t have those same defaults installed, the curtains and wall top will look different for you!

Forgot the most important thing of all: CUSTOM TERRAIN PAINTS were used! You MUST install these- if you don’t want them, or like them, remove them from the lot in game with the terrain paint tool and save the lot. It should be okay to delete the terrain paints from your download folder after that.

Advice asked, advice taken: log deco banished. :) Thank you for the answers! I do believe it’s time to plop a family in (a copy, of course) and make sure everything works the way it’s supposed to! It should, but you never know.

This is one of the biggest lots I’ve ever actually finished. I usually get bored with big lots and almost never landscape them. Oh, the landscaping! That took a lot longer than building the house did! All those trees and little bushes are going to make taking pics a pain in the ass.

Edit: Tested and everything works just fine. :D Even the mailbox and garbage can.. the mailbox was iffy (to me) because it’s placed in an odd place, but the mail was delivered and one of the sims brought it in just fine. The school bus came and went just fine.. Now to screenshot and get links together.

There’s this TS3 lot @ MTS that I really like. Something about it speaks to me, lol. I COULD download it- it’s basegame with no CC, but I don’t want to play TS3 just to play that lot! So I remade it for TS2. :D Permission to share my version has been granted.. what have I gotten myself into?!? There is so much CC! And it’s not done yet! Ugh. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate sharing lots? CC addict that I am… (most of the CC in this lot is build stuff.)

I’m thinking of getting rid off the logs and log stumps (the deco, not the wallpaper). Yes? No?

Designer? Hmmm.. not too sure about that. But how spooky is this: “You see something in your head, and your brain has a way of figuring out how it should come into existence”. That is true for me, and not just in the sims world. (I’ll never forget my best friend pointing to boxes with tulle, pinecones, candles, potpourri and votive holders and telling me she knew I could make centerpieces for her reception out of that stuff. I did, and they were pretty enough that she ended up giving them out as door prizes cuz people actually wanted them! :D)

That said, I see lots of stuff in my head right now but my brain is refusing to cooperate. :( *chases her lost mojo down the block*

So- one of the boys has AgriScience this year. They’re apparently going to be working with honey bees and I’m supposed to sign a waiver that covers various things, including the statement “my child has no known allergies to bees”. I normally don’t have a problem signing stuff like this. Today I do. “No KNOWN allergies”: this is true, he doesn’t have any known allergies to bees. But what if he DOES and we don’t know it? What if he gets stung and has a bad reaction? Does the school not know that such reactions can be deadly? I’d feel a lot better if there was a line in this waiver saying “In case of an allergic reaction to a bee sting, there is an EpiPen available for use on site”. I’m not sure how they could actually work that out, but I’d feel a lot better knowing they have an immediate solution right there.. instead of having to rely on an ambulance if something happened. Very conflicted about signing this waiver. :( (Note: They DO have the proper equipment for the kids to wear and use while working with the bees.. I’m still iffy about it. I’ve seen allergic reactions to stings before and it’s scary.)

They also want $20.00 for FFA fees. Excuse me.. he didn’t choose to take this class, IT was assigned to HIM, so shouldn’t FFA membership be optional not required? Why yes, yes it should if you ask me.

Ooooooh. *sigh* Another thing! Since class schedules are set before registration, why can’t they give you a supply list when you register? (High school.) I totally forgot that we need to get a binder and divider tabs. If I’d have known when getting school supplies.. he’d have that stuff already. Grrr. I don’t feel like going out just to get those 2 things. Looks like I have to though, stupid school. I’ll just have to get me some chocolate - or ice cream!!

Alfred Jenkins, ofc.

LOL. Smartass. :P That’s his undercover name! *awards 2,000 internet dollars for the laugh*

Robin Williams it is! *passes out internet dollars like they’re free* (Oh, wait. They are!) I still need to get his eyes just right though. :(

Aaarrrrgggghhhhh! I can’t get the eyes! *goes back to CAS* 1,000,000 internet dollars if you can guess who he’s supposed to be. Note the “supposed”, close might be as good as I can get. :)
