This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Alright, this is something requested by ghsus a while ago. Apologies for the maassive delay as I was occupied by new work and a couple of other things. I think this might be my last upload for a while since I'll be kept busy with my real life.

These are new object meshes and recolours that are from the television series (which I have never watched :P) the OC, from the poolhouse.
There are 8 new meshes, and 1 wallpaint.

Comes in several recolours for some of the objects:

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out, but flaws that are worthwhile to mention are: the dresser's drawer does not exactly correspond to the sims pulling out animation, unsatisfactory textures of the recliner and endtable, oversized shadow of the table lamp. I tried to improve on those, but in the end I was too busy to do them.

The blind fits the frame of Maxis' The "Function of Plate Glass" Window.

That's it, I've tested the objects thoroughly, hopefully there wouldn't be too many problems. Thanks testers.

Polygon Counts:
> Blind: Faces = 362, Vertices = 296
> Vase: Faces = 702, Vertices = 696
> Low Path Lights: Faces = 114, Vertices = 104
> Endtable: Faces = 458, Vertices = 444
> Dresser: Faces = 2980, Vertices = 2334 High Poly
> Couch/recliner: Faces = 1994, Vertices = 1790
> Floor Lamp: Faces = 496, Vertices = 363
> Double Door: Faces = 1692, Vertices = 1152

Ive decided to still upload the bedding, which is in the zip "Blake'sPoolhouseBednBedding", however, containing in the zip is also the bed recolour to murano's bed at TSR. So you should be aware that you should have the bed mesh if you'd like the recolour to function

Hey, blake_boy. Is there any other way to get that mesh for the bed besides on The Sims Resource? I know this reply is off topic from your post, but it's the only way I know how to reach you. ><

Oh, never mind. Sorry, I'm kind of new to this commenting stuff, and my parents didn't get me the Sims 2 until two Christmases ago.

I remember someone making a set of matching pieces to your dresser using repository technique for the textures a while ago, but I can't seem to find it again. You think you could link me there (or add a link to the overview for others)? I really like this stuff, and I prefer to get the most bang out of anything I download cause I'm not using the greatest system for a lot of extra downloads.

I love this pool house set, but I have one question/problem. Is the bed it self suppose to come with the theme because the bedding shows up but no bed. Other than that great job.
