Grim's Way

Requires World Adventures and Ambitions
Built with version 4.0.87

With Halloween just around the corner I decided to try making a spooky house. Not just a spooky house but a house that's inherently evil. Grim's Way offers you all the basic amenties: small den, lounge with fireplace, entrance lobby, small dining room, with connecting small kitchen, 3 bedrooms (2 double one single), 2.5 bathrooms, wrap around porches, a double weed-infested driveway and hassle free gardens (weedy and overgrown with nothing to look after, water/fertilize etc.).

There is no CC in this lot apart from these two freebie lamps from the Sims Store which I assume most people have already downloaded:
Not a street floor lamp
Jack O' Floor Lamp

WYSIWYG in regards to the screenshots - everything is deliberately musty, dusty, poorly lit, lacking colour, void of life and "innocence" muhahahahaaahhhh.

Otherwise this house is a nice, as they say in Australia, "doer upper"

Lot Size: 40x30
Furnished: 123,154
Unfurnished: 85,931


Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: 123,154

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

I am creating a mixed neighborhood of Brady bunch..The Adams family and with Boris Karloff and Vincent Price thrown in... As well as Milla (resident evil) and a few other stars.. So this house is going to fit perfectly..

This is definitely the best looking haunted house ive seen for the sims3 yet! Too bad I dont have WA for the skeletons.Other than that its great! But I did some moving stuff around.

I moved all the urns from inside to the backyard to make a little cemetery.Which is the only thing I think that was missing.Well that and an attic.

I also moved my elderly ghost couple in the house which is just perfect for them!

Wow, this house is very scary and perfect for Halloween themed sims! It's especially great since the Late Night EP + vampires are just around the corner I know where I'm going to put my first LN vampire family! I love it, thanks!

Thanks for the great feedback guys

Gamesmasterking, cool, I am glad you downloaded it after all. I didn't add a graveyard because it's not realistic to have a graveyard in one's yard, but then again, it's not realistic to have a shovel and a skeleton in the entrance area of a house either lol

I was just about to comment on that skeleton! 'Doer upper' my two left feet! That's some grim mess! :P

I can hardly wait to play this house, in my own version I feel a graveyard would be that oh so perfect exension of the yard, if only to accompany the skeleton and shovel in the foyer, of course. (lol)
Currently I have a small collection of haunted and non-haunted victorian homes in my neighborhood which I've named, "Fartingale."
This home is a lovely and much needed addition, since I am so particular. Thank you very much. I greatly appriciate your vast and complex talent.

This is excellent, plays like a dream too. I thoroughly enjoyed making this my Sims renovation challenge. Great work and hope to see more homes from you soon.
