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 has seen better days, with fireplace and basement. It has a covered entrance/mini porch and an overgrown vegetable garden in the yard (which bears fruit nevertheless).

1 x double bedroom
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen
1 x dining/living room
2 x storage room (basement)

There is a study area in the upstairs hallway (not a separate room); one could put a tiny single bedroom in place of that, or in the basement. Currently the basement is only a storage space.

One could also cut off a second 2x1 toilet from the landing that leads to the garden (I didn't do that since I'd play the house from the other direction, so that the chimney would block the view of that toilet).

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

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

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.

yes man.

there are hundreds of creators who build all those giant-houses, but there's still no stuff in sims 3 to fill those houses. i'm not talented in creating good looking houses for myself - so u are my god now!

Wish I could pack up our stuff right now and move right in The smalness, countryness and the seen better dayness is all too irresistable to me Great work!

Beautiful... just like all those other small houses you build! You are a natural talented decorator! I'm glad I discovered you are now creating with TS3! I found out cause I was trying to get pictures from Elsewhere neighborhood from TS2. Maybe I'll give it a try with CAW. That neighborhood makes me miss Sims2.

Thanks for all the nice things you do!
