Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A small country house that kind of veered off in the Victorian direction, with fireplace. It's furnished for 3 sims (two of them a couple) but the single bedroom has room for another bed. A small vegetable garden is prepared in the yard – just an empty patch of dirt, but it is there if you want to use it.

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen
1 x dining/living room

There's an open gallery upstairs, looking down on the living room, that has some additional space for hobby stuff and the like – one could also wall it in and turn it into a third bedroom.

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. This isn't a starter – it will cost just under 30.000§ on a standard 20x30 lot – but I believe it could be turned into one by removing some items (I haven't tested that theory, though).

Prices given below (F = Furnished; U = Unfurnished) are when placed on a regular 20x30 lot.

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.

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.

Nice house on sale for just basic cash and some kaching! xD

BTW, i love how those houses looks like what EA houses had tried to look: cozy and quaint suburban homes painted in shades of a determined key colour.

I find myself again and again just looking at the lots you make, even if I have no intention of dl anything - they are just so pretty! So, today, after deciding to dl half a dozen of your small houses once again, I thought it would be nice to let you know how much I appreciate your style.
My Sims, both 2&3, thank you, too

Have fun building!
