Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello again =)

i'm very slowly about Sims EP News, but now i realized that there is another EP coming out. After installing, the first thing i wanted to do was build a House There is very nice Stuff again in it!
Because my creative Sims needed a new Home, i built a sea house and called it "Artist's Home". There is a big Gallery in th house and between the whole paintings your Sims can live..(or Have to live :D) Nothing grungy today but very comfy.
I Hope you like it =)

There is no sea "included" in the Lot. I chose a nice Place in the middle of the new Neighborhood where the water is very close =)
I added a screenshot now which shows where i placed the house

This Lot is fully furnished as always and contains no custom content. But you will need World Adventures and the new Ambitions EP to get it work.

costs furnished: 89,546 §

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Wow, it looks wonderful. Too bad I don't have ambitions yet. You did the columns with moveobjects, right? Very creative idea.

Ok. I LOVE this house but I don't have EITHER EPs. What would happen if I tried installing it with just the base game?

What is that sound?
The sound that makes the world go 'round!

The objects from the EPs will be missing or replaced by other objects.

I'm quickly becoming a fan of your lots; I love how they are so detailed and don't have any CC. I'm trying to keep my game clean, so your lots are perfect!

Beautiful home. You've done really well on pretty much everything. It's the kind of home I'd love to have in real life.

It would be nice if the edge of the lot blended better with the surrounding landscape. It seems like there's a sudden dip from the outside world to some of the landscaping.

Also, there doesn't seem to be any room for a double bed. You can't put it in the same place as the rug between the twin beds, since there are routing issues. I'm not very good with houses, so I really don't know how to fix it. It's not really a problem, with the right playstyle, but it makes it difficult for me to use, due to personal preference.

Please call me Gale.
