The challenge

A request from http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=594278

When HelloGoodbye 2007 asked me to build this villa, I thought it would be a challenge.
It indeed was, several times I wanted to chuck, but after all I am glad I persisted.
Here and there the size is adjusted to make it simmable or just for better proportions.
I hope he likes it and you all too, of course.

This spacious villa is built with traditional and solid materials but surprisingly modern in the finishing.
Your hardworking and wealthier Sims will love it. There is plenty of room to live with a family and for pets it is a heaven on earth.
You’re invited to enjoy the serenity of the more than luxuriant garden. Come and see it yourself.

I thought of bringing this furnished as shown, but considered, what is more simple than just make everybody happy and put the whole bunch into the up-load and say a simple word of thanks. There is a big chance everything will be taken for granted and no threads or sites will be visited, so;
A shopping list of the used furniture -and very important too- the sites where I got the re-colours from, gives more credit to all the magnificent people with the skills to make everything look brilliant and accurately detailed.

Shopping list for the furniture and accessories shown on the pictures:
Living and dining room from http://stylistsims.de.vu/ with the wonderful re-colours of Jonesi at http://www.reflexsimsforum.com/
Cushions in the livingroom from www.wallsims.net ws_ocean
A lot of accessories and cushions in the masterbedroom come from http://mangosims2.free.fr aswell as the sink and toilet from the masterbathroom ligne Magnolia

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

Oliv1a, The house and garden are to download, if you want the furnishing or parts of it, you need to go to the sites I mentioned in the shopping list.

Good luck with your search,

Hi Bluee2005
Do you have all EP's and/or do you have Numenor's wall hack "properly" installed, and/or do you have Numenor's re-colourable wooden stairs installed.
These are the first three things I can think of. I haven't had any complains yet about crashing the game. But when something else comes to my mind I will let you know.
Have a nice day, Ambron

Another thing that could cause the problem. It is built in a custom neighbourhood, have you installed it in a maxis one or custom? Maybe a bit tricky to you, a thing I sometimes do when i'm having problems with starting the game or something with playing. (It is no advice but you can consider to do so) Is throw away the groups cache, cigen and contents of thumbnail folder. The first two are in Mydocuments/EA Games/The sims 2
With me it works fine all the time but if you think it is too risky, don't do it.
At this moment I have no other solution, I am sorry
