Pandora (a European house by request of Candykisses)

When I got this request, again I thought “what a terrific challenge”. “ Now it is time to figure out how the diagonal roofs work out in Pets”. Well the roof works fine but a diagonal garage, no way, no diagonal driveway and no diagonal garage doors.
What is the function of a not working garage? So this is the solution I came up with, hopefully it is to everybody’s satisfaction and I hope it does not harm the original design of the house.

During building, there was one thought that came running through my mind all the time.
“Pandora, Pandora, Pandora”
Once I opened the box of this European all the limits of the game and of course my own were slapped into my face. I was left with hope that is should become a fine playable house, with all functional options and some resemblance with the original concept from . http://www.eplans.com

This house has been tested in game and everything works fine. Even the elevators do function.
I have re-placed some custom content as shown on the pictures by Maxis content because I noticed some re-colours don’t work anymore or due the policy of the creators I was not allowed to distribute their creations.

The house is built on a 5x6 lot and costs 178.559,- Simoleans
It is built with EP 1-2-3-4
No furnishing was used in order to have a complete empty house. Feel free to re-arrange the given floor plan to your Sims convenience.

I hope you like it and especially Candykisses too, anyway I liked the building of this huge manor. Thank you for your request Candykisses.

Enjoy playing this house. Have lots of fun.

The coming weeks I am going to build and finish the requests I already promised to build.
After that I am taking no requests anymore.
I hope you will understand.
The Request area on this site can fulfil all your wishes, due to all the talented builders who love to take the challenges you offer them.
When I am into an other search for my limits or want to expand the borders of it, you will find me searching in that area too.

PS. On the Lady on Red I made a painting, Pandora by John William Waterhouse, 1896
This is a gift from me to you, let’s say a Christmas gift.
It is in the history and painting rar file.
