Finnley Cottage is a tiny little house for a single sim, with just enough room to entertain few guests.

I got the idea for this cottage after HP kiddingly called me ms. Cottages So thanks HP for inspiration

- Diningroom with a reading corner
- Livingroom with fireplace and a tv
- Kitchen with open view to diningroom
- A bedroom
- A bathroom
- Forgotten attic with things that have been there for years (there used to be ladders on the side of the house to access the attic from the front side, but they have been broken down a long time ago)

- Bike stand
- Seating in front side garden
- BBQ and table to eat at the back side
- A small vegetable garden at the back with salad, tomatoes and grapevines.
- Beautiful flowerbeds

The lot has been playtested for routing. Almost everything is CASTed, and the lot is fully decorated

No CC has been used, but I suggest you get this mod, so that the curtains stay where they are supposed to:
Curtain Height Adjustment by Granthes

Game requirements:
You will need Base game, WA, Ambitions and Late night installed with patch 6.1.11 or higher

Additional Credits:
Granthes for the curtain mod

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 really like it, and it's really cute... but it's impossible!!!! How are there stairs going up to the bedroom when it's on the same level foundation as the "downstairs"?? I'm almost going insane on how confusing this house is and how you made it!!!! Can you explain please?
