Hello Simmers!

Today I present you 'The Overhang', An unique cliffhouse in modern architecture.


It's called overhang because a part of the house isn't supported by collumns, so it hangs over the ground. The balcony also isn't supported by collumns and is hanging over the pool.
From the living and bed area your Sims can enter the balcony which has a beautiful views over the beach and sea.
Your Sims will like it!

Full lot:


Pool area:


Living area:


The living area is full of bright colors, very happy, not that depri darkbrown wood everywhere!

It has:
Living area (w/ access to balcony)
Dining area (w/ access to balcony)
Kitchen
Sleeping area (w/ access to balcony)
Bathroom

It only costs §156.286 fully furnished and §63.311 Unfurnished!
It's built on a custom placed lot. Place a 50x25 lot at the other roadside of the Wright Way (where the cliffhouses are)

CC used (download seperately)
Falling water set and Retaining wall both by Flabaliki on TSS
Modernline window set by Hudy777
Simple collumn by Funbruk

I hope you enjoy!

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.

Ooo, cool. Its not that unique a design. I see houses like this one all the time on the river or lake front in New Orleans. Most people build like that around there due to the possible water rise if a hurricane comes along.

Maybe. I don't live in USA. But I think it's unique in Sims

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

Place a custom 50x25 lot on the other side of Wright way, the long side of the lot must go up the mountain. And if it's correct, the lot can be conected on the road

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

I downloaded and installed this house, but the custom walls have installed as black, and look weird in game, I can't even recolour them as they are just black :o( How do I fix that? I installed the files for the walls in program files/Electronic Arts/Sims 3 Fast Lane/Mods/Packages folder, is that right?

You must put it in your C*://Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Mods/packages
NOT in any expansion or stuff pack folder.
Fast lane is a stuff pack.

or where ever you installed it

Hello, I'm sorry for my bad english, I'm french. It's a very very very nice house, i love the overhang!!
but i don't understand where we must put this house!
In which word?? Sunset Valley, Riverview, Twinbrook, Barnacle Bay?? I dont' have Barnacle Bay but I have the orthers and I don't find the "wright way", or the "cliffhouses" (you tell about this family in your présentation if I understood).
Can you help me please?
Than you very much for your help!

I think it's wonderfully unique (for the sims3) I've been looking for houses like this that utilize all the hills in Sunset Valley. Can't wait to get in the game and see if I can get this set up. (Not sure where "Wright Way" is in Sunset Valley, if in Sunset Valley. Perhaps you could specify where it is e.g. Riverview, Sunset Valley...etc). Thank you for making this and posting it for us out here. Fantastic work (I know it was hard too giggle).
