Bespoke Build Set **Updated 7-23-2018**

ROOF RECOLORS made compatible with Niol's roof shaders by simsllama.

I like to build the mix of houses you'd find in the typical American suburb (often from house plans) so this set doesn't faithfully follow any particular build style. It's a nice, versatile set of windows, doors and miscellaneous bits and pieces suitable for the houses I like to build. I tried to keep the info as to the point as possible. Hopefully I conveyed everything you need to know but maybe not. If you have any questions please ask.

Click the buttons for details.


INSPIRATION: So much about this set is the result of the Sims 2 community it felt wrong not to acknowlege that in a small way. I've used pheonix_pharie's Modern Georgian Manor set for absolutely ages and think it's just about perfect so this set was heavily influenced by theirs. Nysha and Raynuss both came out with really nice sets when I was actively making these so they had an influence. Not to mention Lee who introduced me to the wonders of centered windows and doors, MLC for her lovely porch sets, fansee who once wanted columns that hid in cutaway view, ekrubynaffit who was looking for blue roof trim once upon a time, and more recently Peni Griffin who's posts made me go back and make sure as much of this set as possible could be used without cheats.

Polygon Counts:
Generally low to average. The gingerbread and flower boxes are comparatively high and worth taking note of but nothing is outrageous. See post for exact counts.

Additional Credits:
Lamare, Chris Hatch and d4RE who offered help and answered my questions. SimPe, AGS, Milkshape and Photoshop. Maxis for the meshes and textures and MTS for hosting and the new tables.

I honestly teared up a little upon seeing this... I can't thank you enough for this set.

My husband just called me cray cray, as Im sitting here gasping going ohhhh look at it all!! Have only just finished a house I've been working on for ages and now I'm looking at this set thinking maybe I should change out all the windows and doors!!! (I won't but I can picture it!)
Thanks Honey for another amazing set!!!

Honeywell, it's just sublime and extremely well made!! Thank you so much!!

FranH 15th Jul 2018 11:31 AM

Oh, Honeywell, you're going to make me have to throw out most of my build section to fit all of your lovely set into it...but I really don't mind, because it's all the same style!
Thank you so much for your hard work! It's wonderful to still have great creators like you in the community!

Karen Lorraine 15th Jul 2018 12:35 PM

Amazing set, thank you so much for sharing!

Oh my. It's like you got into my head and combined the best parts of my 2 favorite build sets (Ray's Paneled Doors/Windows and Veranka's Thorpe Build Set) into 1 glorious, fantabulous dream come true.

In case you haven't figured out how in love with this I am yet: it's a bit after 6:30 in the morning here. The only reason I'm up is that the cat demanded his breakfast (which he nibbled at and he is now sunning himself in the window, the brat) - I thought "Ah, I'll check MTS and a couple sites first...". My game was running, it's now ended and this set is already in my downloads and I'm just about to restart my game. I'm gonna try to go back to sleep for a bit but I dunno, I know how long it takes for my game to load, lol.

Thanks for this lovely gift HW!

Edit: Finally got to play around with this set and I have got to say - it is flippin' gorgeous and everything I've always wanted in a build set (and was obviously too lazy to make myself, lol.)

areyoukiddingme!? I absolutely love to build and I absolutely love this set - thank you! I'm really looking forward to playing with it and I sincerely appreciate all the wonderful space-saving elements and your careful attention to detail ♥

CatherineTCJD 15th Jul 2018 4:28 PM

Omg.... Flippin' Awesome!

moseaclaidin 15th Jul 2018 7:11 PM

I'm a really bad house builder. They really just look like shipping containers, square next to square =home
I LOVE that you put all the pictures of your homes with the set. They look just like driving down a real street. They are going to enable me to actually use your set to make houses that actually look like real homes! So excited!! Thank you for sharing so much in the set and pictures!

This is the best build mode content I have seen for TS2 since...maybe forever. Thank you so much Honeywell, keep it coming!
