The Gavigans

When I build a new house for sims, I do a “write up” on it in a spiral notebook.  After the house is posted, the paper goes in a binder where I can find it in the future, if needed.  It has not always been this way, but it’s one of those things that experience teaches.  Document.  It often comes in handy.  Especially since several weeks, sometimes months, pass between when I build it, and when it gets posted here.  My memory is not that long.  xD

For reasons I cannot even begin to guess, there seems to be no “write up” for this house.  I have looked everywhere.  It’s not too big of an issue, as I just created a new write up.  The only hitch is, I do not know if this is a base game only house, or if Night Life is required.  Is there a way to tell that after the house is built?  If anybody knows, please let me know.  Or, if you have the base game only and try to install this house, but it tells you that you need NL, please let me know that too.

Quaint is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath house built on a 3×4 lot (I think) that sells for 86,099.  It has some different design elements that I’m rather fond of … I’ll point them out in the pictures.

It has a kitchen/dining room combo, and a separate breakfast nook.  It has a large living room with fireplace.  I hate the current furniture arrangement in the living room, so fix that up with some custom content right away, mmmkay?  The kids have their own wing on the opposite side of the house from the master suite.  There is a very small room behind the chimney that is meant to be a storage room for your lot debugger, or other small items like that.  (BTW, I highly recommend the lot debugger, you should have one on every lot!)  Feel free to do what you will with that room, but it’s pretty small.

The lot has minimal landscaping to keep down the move in costs.  There is room on the lot for a garden or pond or pool or hobby items or driveway, but not enough room for all those things.

This house was also play tested by the Gavigans (hence their picture on the post, LOL) and they found that I forgot …. guess what!!  If you guessed lights, please move to the front of the class and collect your cookies.  No light in the bathroom between the front door and the girl’s bedroom.  The Gavigans feel that there should be more windows in the bathrooms and in the storage room, so feel free to add those.  You’re going to redecorate with custom content anyway, right?  Right!  I also forgot to put a trash can in the house, certainly you’ll need one of those.  You’ll need to fix these things yourself, as I’m going with the theory that this is a base game only lot, but I no longer have a base game only set up.

Let me show you what this house looks like.  I’m quite pleased with it, and may actually have to play the game, instead of just building, just to see somebody enjoy this house!

414 Strawberry Cove

This is another large house for an advanced Legacy, or for a large family. It has 5 bedrooms and 4 bonus rooms, although one is quite small. It is built in a Mexican, or perhaps a Southwestern Style. It was built by request (strong suggestion?) from prescella_bean, who needed a large house built on a 3 x 3 lot. I’ve uploaded a few of these large houses recently, but she needed one on a smaller lot, so I did one. This one is 2-story, where the others were one story. She did not give me a budget, I shot for $70k, but missed by a bunch. :(

No custom content, no hacks, no sims in it.
Base game only, no EPs needed!! 3 x 3 lot $88,135 partially furnished
