150 Main Street

This is a remodel of Don Lothario's house, a Maxis-made house in Pleasantview that I made for a contest on N99. It's . I rebuilt it with Angela Pleasant in mind: she had just dropped out of University and returned to Pleasantview rather dejected, so her parents bought her a house.

It was made completely with Maxis items, because I had no downloads in my game at all when I built it, being in the middle of a trace-that-download cycle. But it was made with all Stuff packs and Expansion Packs.

If you want to see more detail, each picture will expand when you click on it.

I was originally thinking of a castle style but I didn't have my castle downloads. I DID find some interesting BV stuff though.

And yes, you can swim!

I was asked to shots of the floor plan so here they are:

Ground Floor, with a largish sitting room, to show off the baronial-style fireplace, and the oddly-shaped space used for kitchen/dining room, bathroom tucked into the corner.

Upstairs is simply the open-plan bedroom, again with fireplace - mediaeval days were COLD! and balcony, access to upper balcony or "tower".

Overall plan showing balcony and tower. I had LOTS of fun building this place and I highly recommend playing sometimes with Maxis-content only, limiting yourself to this can be surprising. That's how I discovered the plaque with ancient SimAztec Simivarius.
