Hi every one, this is my first post here.

This house is built on a lake, with a small path connecting to the driveway so that your sims don't need to swim through the lake to get to the house. All walls are built with windows (except for the walls in the bathroom), so place this house somewhere nice with beautiful surroundings. Completely furnished in matching woods and metals.

What's in the house?
2 Bedrooms
1 Bathrooms
1 small balcony (sims cannot go fishing on balcony, sorry)
No garage
No fireplace
No waterlilies on ponds (there are some in pictures below, but I compressed the house before adding those waterlilies)

Suitable for small family of 1 to 4 members.
Hope you enjoy .

Lot Size: 25 x 30
Lot Price: Furnished: $45,927 / Unfurnished: $32,551.

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.

Oooh... It's like a summer vacation lodge where you pay a little too much to stay there for a few days, but you still pay because it's worth it and you have such a great time. Ahhhhhhhhhh. I'm in love with this! Thanks!
