Das Winzig Haus
(The Tiny House [right?])

This tiny little lot was so much fun to build! It was also a pain in the butt, though, no lies. I was originally aiming for a starter, but that soon proved to be too much effort because of how far over budget I went. Then I decided that I wanted it to fit two sims, so a bit of swearing and a renovation or two later and BAM! Fits two sims. I also had a mini heart attack because Whiterider mentioned that attics aren't playable. Thankfully, after a three day play test, I can confirm this lot plays flawlessly!

Anyways, moving on.

This lot contains:

1 Bedroom
1 Bathroom
Dining area
Living area

Which, I think is a fair deal for a lot so small!

Lot Size: 10x10
Furnished: 25,000 even
Unfurnished: 18,179
# of Sims: 2
Playtest: Yessir

I hope you all enjoy it

Lot Size: 1x1
Lot Price: See post

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.

Great interior design and nice split level work!

Btw. correct german would be "Das winzige Haus" but yours is ok as a proper name for a house, as artist sometimes aren't so strict with grammar when it sounds better or to have a unique name.

That really is a cool little house, amusingly when I read the name and translation below the first thing I thought of was "The WinZip house" meaning it was compressed . Great work!

Great house, as always. Love it. Question...could you or someone direct me on a place to go to find a tutorial on how to build the stairs as you did in this home please?

Gah, so close! Being out of German class for summer is killing my ability to speak the language. Thanks for the help, though!

Surely Plastic box has an awesome tutorial for it. You won't get the exact results as mine did, because I used some other CFE with it, but it will allow you to learn to make split level stairs.

Would sure love to see a revised version of your tutorial including us in on how you've done this. Everytime I try a split-level without a dummy wall the stairs never show up on the first floor, or floating. I have attempted this dozens of times on a very small house and it never shows the staircase properly. This is a great little house, very well designed. Thanks ALOT for sharing it.
