Greener & Greener: The Bachelor Residence


Here is the Bachelor House from TS3 that I recreated for TS2. It's called Greener & Greener, even though this and the original house are mostly brown and autumny. It's not an exact replica, as I have changed a few things either for logistical, aesthetic, or plot purposes.

This is a fully furnished 4x3 lot costing §60,962, with minimal CC. 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, greenhouse/garden/playground, and secret passage.

living room

The secret passage is located behind the right bookcase, but unfortunately the case is shadowed unless you put a window in the room behind it. So, kind of hard to keep secret either way!

Mike's room

Mike's room in the original was all matchy match pastels and overall looked like my grandma's guest room, so I tried to dress it down a bit.

Bella's room

As with the original, Bella has two rooms for some reason. Shouldn't be too hard to recognize them in comparison to the rest of the house. ;)

And the master bedroom. As you can see I've added a lot of closets.

One thing that bugged me about the original house was that the bathrooms are ridiculously huge and most of it was just empty space, so I have edited them considerably. The guest bathroom I left the same size, but divided it up all fancy. There's still some space where you could add a couch or vanity (or, knowing sims, host an impromptu smustle party).

bath 2

I split off the second floor bathroom into two so that Bella doesn't have to share with her parents.

Speaking of which, while those three had to share a bathroom in the original house, Mike had his own which was bigger than both of Bella's rooms combined. I decided to convert the space at the side of the stairs for him, and turn the bathroom into a "mancave" for Simis. (He is a journalist, so I think a private study makes sense.)

Here's the floorplan. You can compare it with the pictures on the wiki.


Here's the yard and secret passage, which I have left empty. This would normally be where Jocasta hides her cauldron, reagents, and magic clutter.


The first floor

Second floor

Third floor

Requires all EPs and SPs except Ikea. The only CC it comes with is Bella's bed (which is slaved to a Teenstyle one) and the stair cut-outs. It also requires the Life Stories Build Bundle for the outer wall.

Well, I think I've covered everything. This house was requested and tested by Doda Lani. Let me know if there's any problems. Hopefully you guys like it!


ETA: I kinda sorta forgot to put in phones except for the on Simis's desk. Clearly he's even more of a control freak than I thought! So you might want to consider adding one (and a burglar/fire alarm) if you want to play this house. Sorry!

Looking good! I enjoyed comparing with the original. It's fun to see such "complete" CC-free houses, there's really a lot you can do with the ingame content if you just try.

No surprise, I've saw these before and even play tested! You're so quick. :) Forgot to mention me as a huge fan requesting it and play testing it! :) You don't have too anyway :D What light mod you use?

Heh, I can add a credit for you! I use the lighting mod that comes with Scriptorium over on MTS.

Darkened Heart
It is a very nice "re-make" house! :) Don't you thought do the same post with the Goth house?

Re: Darkened Heart
A friend just recently recreated the Goth house. I'm not sure if he's going to share, but I'll ask him. :)

the house
It really seems to suit the Bachelor family the way you write them. Unfortunately, I'm not familiarized with Sims 3, I can't compare the two houses, but I'm sure you did a great job!
And EAxis bathrooms always bugged me! Well, not only bathrooms but some room distributions also don't make any sense, like some bedrooms so tiny you can't even place the bed, for example. It's so strange!

If you use cleaninstaller and it will replace the objects with stuff from the basegame:
