Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi every one! I am here again after my first upload house gained a picked star.
This time I made a larger one that is a typical contemporary design house which is beside a lake.
In case of the desire to make a special architecture, I put more emphasis on its geometric form and the out-side structure, such as the proportionally large windows which provide a brighter inner living area.
The ground plan is completely open and spacious and your sims can enjoy a lot of fun from fishing beside a such big lake.
Hope the water lilies will light up your sims’ mood!
The interior is a combination of some color from natural and earth such as orange, white, brown and ect.
The furniture is simply and modern designed which can be comfortable to live in. Because of the limited of the pics, many things can't show up now such as the outdoor look.
Your sims also will enjoy a lux life from the in-door spa(tiny swimming pool).
I think it can afford about 5-6 people. Hope you enjoy my house in game!!
Veeeerrrrry thanks to your support! See you next time!

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.

The only one prettier than the house is you "amiao103" !!! What country do you live?

One thing I noticed when playing this lot, my sim could not use the stovetop in the center island. It is embedded too deeply in the kitchen island counter tops for them to use it. Is there any kind of code or mod I am missing that keeps this stove from being functional for me? My game has only textures added and no other hacks or mods I'm aware of unless somehow they came packaged in somebody's lot or sim.

Amazing work I wish I had patience to sit and do this. Thank you for sharing.

For the person who said it would not open or said it was broken file redownload and overwrite the rar file that happens with all files here and there Common issue easily fixed re-downlaod.

With the Stove issue it was likely placed with Move Object on to make it look nice and was not tested for actual functioning in game play. many builders do not test but than after all the work done on this house if a stove having to be moved is your only issue well that is darn good
Just move it out or place it some place else in the kitchen is likely the only thing you need to do.
Oh and the poster wanting a zip You can snag a free program that opens RARs hy ask the creator to do More work.
go here or Google WinRAR for Mac

what an interesting idea, I like how it sits of the water like that. However i was wondering if you have applied any anti mosquito substance to this house, it looks like that might be a just kidding!!! really great idea and very unique house even if it wasn't on a lake
