This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Welcome to the third set release in the Manor House Collection. This is the Kitchen set, which I have a feeling a lot of people will enjoy.

This set has been split into two parts. This is part one and features all the appliances, counters and cabinets.

----JAN. 14 UPDATE: PLEASE READ---
Being the ditz that I am, I forgot to change the GUID settings of the kitchen island, which means it was overwriting the original Maxis table I cloned it from and generally running amok and vexing innocent simmers.
I have fixed the aberrant island file, but if you have already downloaded the kitchen set, you will need to download the fixed island.

If you are downloading the set for the first time, then you are safe.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you. My download folder groans, but thanks you also.

I'm greedy and I would love this set in a wood color. Any chance?

Finally, add my name to the Seasons frig. Again, thank you, a wonderful kitchen.
Coffee, anyone?

Absolutely stunning! I can't wait to see it in game. Also, sign me up for the Seasons or possible Free Time fridge.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

Top drawer (no pun intended) as usual. Thanks so much.

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, then what about an empty desk?

My stuff may be used in uploads if 1. Credit is given, 2. link to my page provided. Happy simming!

I don't know what to say: words like amazing, excellent or wonderful can't describe what I think about this set. Because this set is the BEST I have ever seen

Thank you so much for all your perfect work!

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! If I had a gorgeous kitchen like this in real life, I would never use it. I would only stare. It would be almost a sin to use the counters and appliances for cooking! I'm pretty sure my sims will feel the same way!
