11/14/2020 Added a new house: Ivy Green Victorian
7/17/2020 Updated the Silver Moss Cape. (Sim's weren't able to enter the master bedroom.)

Here are four more Bespoke Houses that I started based on houseplans and ended up fairly close to the originals (which doesn't usually happen for me). They're nice, landscaped houses in the 40K-60K range and come with some basic furnishings to get you started. I grouped these houses together because they share CC:

REQUIRED BUILD MODE CC

Bespoke Build Set by me (MTS)
Invisible Green Greenhouse Roof by Criquette (Tumblr)
Invisible and "No - Cut Away" walls by Numenor (MTS)

Landscaping:
Birch Trees by Murano (TSR)
Rose Bushes by Mustluvcatz (Tumblr)
Creeping Phlox by me (Leefish)
Group of Wildflowers by me (MTS)

INCLUDED BUILD MODE CC (in a seperate folder)

16 Walls: paints & clapboard and 4 floors by me
Invisible Drive Way by Sims2you7 (aka Frillen7) (dead site)

All of the build mode CC is recommended but none of it is packaged with the lots. If you don't have the CC you'll need to do some light building edits like deleting the greenhouse roof pieces and door/window/paint swaps to "fix" the houses. (The greenhouse roof was used to recreate the look of the house plans and the custom walls were used to make the attic/dormer second floors more player friendly.)


NOTES: The houses were built in my full game and have never been occupied. The Silver Moss Cape house is on a 1/2 height foundation and large dogs can't use the steps. Two of the 3 other houses are built on 3/4 height foundations and I think large dogs can use the steps just fine but I might be wrong about that. I know small dogs can use them.

DECOR (Optional Buy Mode CC not included)

Wall Cabinets by Nixed Sims (wordpress)
Better Bath Collection by me (MTS)
Garden Stackables Large Planter & Ground Cover by me (MTS)
Bespoke Curtains & Blinds by me (MTS)

Hi Ethan. I used Mootilda's grid adjuster for the foundations. There's info/tutorials in the grid adjuster thread and Shastakiss has a really good "little deck" tutorial at Sims 2 Artists if you wanted to give that a try.

Is the invisible greenhouse roof really required? I thought it was a separate object, but apparently it's a default replacement of some kind that makes all greenhouse walls and roof invisible, which I don't want.

It's required if you want the houses to look like the pictures. If you don't have the invisible default replacement you'll need to do delete the greenhouse roof pieces.

These are beautiful houses! However I had a problem with the Silver Moss Cape: my sims can't enter the suite, how can I solve this?

Hi Gabs28, I'm sorry! There's 2 pieces of roof trim that's causing the problem--if you delete the middle and end pieces of trim on the right gable (see pic below) that will fix it. I updated the bespoke build set so if you download the update you can place new trim and your sims will be able to enter the suite with the roof trim in place.

I also updated the lot file on this post to include the fix so if you prefer you can re-download the lot and your sims will be able to use the new house without you needing to do anything to fix it. Thanks for letting me know!
