Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A little two-story brick house for up to four sims, furnished for three, with a covered porch on one side and another entrance opposite to it.

1 x double bedroom
2 x single bedroom (one furnished)
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living room

Built on the smallest lot I have (16x18), so it can be rotated in any direction on every other lot. Playable from at least two static camera angles; three sides of the house would look good as a street side.

Prices given below (F = Furnished; U = Unfurnished) are when placed on a regular 20x30 lot. There is a TV, a stereo and a dresser included; if you delete those it will be under 17.000§ – suitable as a starter for a single parent with one child.

Please don't PM me with questions. Post questions/feedback about this particular house in this thread, generic build mode stuff in the Build Mode forum. Thanks.

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.

plastic box, thank you so much for creating sims 3 houses!!!

I really missed your houses. In sims 2, I had only your nighborhoods and your houses installed. You have no idea how much I enjoyed them!!!!
I was waiting for your sims 3 houses. I downloaded other creators houses but I never like them as much as yours. Never. Your houses have a special feel about them. I can't put my finger on it really, they are just really special.

Thank you so much for your hard work. It is sooooo appriciated!

I can't believe you managed to make a 2 story family home for under 18, 000.
