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

Four bedroom, 3 bath Craftsman home with a large yard and pool.
First floor feature large master bathroom with en suite bathroom, plus two smaller bedrooms, one furnished as a nursery with plenty of toys and play space, the second furnished with two single beds. A second bathroom is accessed from the entry hall. Large living room has a fireplace and computer desk. Eat in kitchen has an interestingly shaped dining area, and access to the porch. The master bedroom also has a door leading directly to the back porch.

Second floor attic has a large bedroom with en suite bath, plus a desk and easel on the landing. This bedroom is furnished with two single beds, and is perfect for teens who are too cool to live downstairs with the rest of the family.

Covered porch in the front, and another that wraps from the right side to the back. Large yard features pool and BBQ area, with lots of landscaping and space leftover.
The house is built on a corner lot, with street access to the right. A two car parking area is accessed from this street on the right, so this house is best placed on a corner. Sims 3 allows you to place the car anywhere and they are still usable, because the Sims don't drive their cars out of their garages/driveways, so it would be possible to play this house on a non-corner, but it would look funny.

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.
