Hiya MTS, long time no see.. .

Okay, so yes, it's been a while since I myself uploaded something, and even longer since I uploaded a house (I think september's a good guess), so I decided to go back to what made me a creator in the first place - building houses.

Although Honestly, I can't say this was my planned next future upload, but I didn't have the inspiration to finish the other two houses in the my bachelour series, so I started work on this one. (and one other one, but I've been working on that one for months, time will tell what that one is. )

ooops. Sorry for the rant, onto business (before I say anything else) .

Please Note that this house will require the most recent update, (and possibly World Adventures (though I'm not sure)), sorry about this.

This was one of those houses that just 'came to me'. It was just, 'OMG, that design is brilliant' *rushes to his computer to put his ideas to work before he forgets* things.
The name is La` Haus.



This was the first thought of design, for a change I knew the name before anything else.
(orginially this house was meant to have french infulences, hence the name, but I ahh *ahem* forgot.

Basically the goal of this house was to combine natural with modern. I wanted a home that, sort of had the landscaping inside, as well as out. But also one that created an open feel, taking in the surroundings (like the beautiful ocean views).






I also wanted the house to be as stunning at night as it is during the day.





The interior design was somewhat... open. It doesn't really have specified rooms, per say. (well it does, but it's just one big open space devided by plants, water features, and furniture (also stairs). The actual placing of the rooms was also done last, which is why the kitchen suffered somewhat more than what it probably would have normally. But it's still nice all the same.

NOTE: I only just realised this morning that I forgot to include a sink, dishwasher or trashcompactor in the kitchen, Sorry! It's hard to just put one in though.

HOUSE INFORMATION

Features:
  • Grand Entrance
  • Open plan living areas, with open-void galleries, water features and outside bought indoors styled landscaping.
  • Kitchen/Dinning
  • Split Level! (this part includes the study, and living room)
  • Another study in foyer area, with Sitting Room
  • Upstairs TV Room, also with study
  • 3 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms (2 upstairs; ensuites to Master Bedrooms and shared ensuite between Bedrooms 1 & 2; as well as one downstairs)
  • Pool, and beautiful landscaping
  • Room for expansion

Ideal lot placement: 500 Sunnyside Boulevard (however can be placed on any 40x40 lot)

Other Notes: The stairs leading down from the landing into the split level area DO NOT WORK, I repeat they are NOT functional, so please don't get up me. :P. I wanted the staircase in that design, I just couldn't get sims to use it properly, so this was the best option. Sims will just use the other way up the stairs (they won't complain they can't get their destination).

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.

For some reason, the installer thingy in the launch doesn't even want to install the house. Is there something I am doing wrong? It shows and I can click on it, but it won't let me install.

I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SOMETHING HORRIBLE FOR YOU

It may be your computer, I downloaded myself and got someone else to install it and it works fine. Unfortunately I'm not that great with computers so I'm not sure how to fix your problem .

But to install, all you should have to do is double click on the file and it should it should run the lancher and install it.

If you have a slow computer it may just take a little patience? Sorry I couldn't help more.

And thanks for the feedback everyone, glad you like it.

Everything sucks, until it doesn't.

You might want to warn players that if they haven't updated their sims 3 they can't load the house. I'm satisfied with my game and haven't bothered and the launcher warned me that I had to upgrade. I'm not a masochist. ;-) Beautiful house, though.
