250 Main Street - Aspir House Makover

Photobucket


Update: If you downloaded this house before Feb. 19, 2012 - I apologize.  I had the link wrong, which was to one of my other houses.  Sorry about that!

5 Small Street revisited

5 Small Street is part of a series I built a long time ago.  I've never used this house in my game, because my sims are always having families, and this just wasn't big enough.

Well, I decided to see if I could add rooms to the attic, and it worked better than I expected.

What was once a 2 bedroom house is now a 4 bedroom house, suitable for up to 6 sims.
