There's nothing I enjoy more than taking an EA *lot* apart, and making it over to suit my own games needs. Not just residential lots, either - the community lots all could do with a face lift, and bit by bit they tend to get it. It's a bit of a cheat really... doing makeovers - because the basics are already there to inspire you. It's a lot harder to come up with something from scratch than it is to improve on something that's already there. Having said that, it's one of the aspects of the game that I enjoy most!
I'm currently working my way through the Riverview Neighbourhood. It's got a wonderful rural feel to it that's begging me to dismantle and rebuild the homes et al that have no soul. When I makeover a residential lot, I tend to leave the interiors for downloaders to fill with furnishings themselves - partly because I get bored by the time I've finished the house and garden, and partly because I want to decorate it for my own game and that sometimes means filling it up with third party custom content - to which I am addicted. However, you can't partially build/furnish a community lot and expect people to respect you in the morning. So when I build one, from scratch or as a makeover - it gets everything it needs and is also playtested.
The community lot pictured used to be Dogwood Park, and is now Plum Tree Park - I'll let you work out why the name change as well as the face lift. I've already madeover a few houses on Dogwood Lane - Azalea Cottage, Glade Cottage, Little Tinker and Grand Dame. You'll find a link to this download at the bottom of this page. I hope you like it.
