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.

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.

I love that you have a particular style of furniture and stick with it come rain or shine. Whether I favour that style or not, I am always in admiration of creators who make the effort to improve on their work, especially when they have been lauded for as long as you and could simply rest on their laurels spewing up the same ole, same old. This is a lovely traditional kitchen with nice simple textures (you make white look interesting) and pretty shading. Thankyou.
