Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is the second house of a set of houses I've been working on based on real houses in Lavenham, Suffolk. This one is also based on a photo my mother took.

It's called Ivy Cottage because the walls were meant to be covered in ivy, it wasn't until I went to put some against the walls that I realised the ivy type plants come with a later EP d'oh

Its on a small (2x2) lot, and has 2 bathrooms, a lounge room (with a fireplace), a double bedroom on the second floor, a kitchen and dining room and a small hallway.

The garden is only partially done, and there is access to more garden area out the back. A pond or crops might go nicely there.

Probably best suited to a young or elderly sim couple.

Comments appreciated

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: 32,428

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

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

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

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.
