I checked the file with CUSTARD to make sure that there is nothing included that doesn't belong there.

Required Custom Content (please download seperately):

You must have the above item installed to your game, otherwise the elevator won't work for the upper levels of the building.


I did also use the „Buyable Mailbox and Trash Chute“ made by HugeLunatic to place the mailbox, however, you do not need to have it installed to your game. I did not have this installed when I re-installed and playtested the house, but the mailbox was still there. If you want to download it anyway, please click here.
