This will work with all expansions up to and including Freetime--I don't have
Apartment Life yet (I'm busy moving actually, lol). There's only one piece of
custom content, and that is a roof tile recolor by moonlight_muse. Thank you.
Here is another somewhat unusual home. I left the top floor unfurnished
because some folks might not like the bird shape and want to take it off. In
my opinion I think it makes the structure look unique. But that's just me. This
is also the first house for which I used auto-roofing tool (partially), because
it made the bird's 'feathers' look more realistic.
It has four bedrooms (one is a master bedroom with a walk-in closet), five full
baths (one on the third floor--that's the only room I put in on that floor), and
three 3/4 baths. There are two 2-car garages, a second floor lounge/game
room, roomy kitchen and dining area, a hot-tub in the back lawn (covered),
two partially covered 2nd floor decks, two third-story decks, a large tree and
a few smaller trees in the back yard, and four apple trees on each side of the
front yard. Plus four flower beds leading to the double front door and the four
main sim workbenches in the garages. I did a lot of landscape painting and
placed many outdoor lights--the place is well-lit when it's dark.
There is plenty of room for expansion on the third floor. Perhaps another
bathroom and three more bedrooms. Or whatever you like. The full bathroom
on the third floor is completely finished.
If you intend to have a medium-size family that will expand, this is the perfect
home for you. It went through many radical changes through it's creation,
but I believe the end result is rather unique:
Front of House:
First Floor, Top-Down:
Second Floor, Top-Down:
Third Floor, Top-Down:
Custom Content Included:
