Hi everyone!

This is an entry for the monthly theme of January: Elders. Good theme, as we really need more Elder stuff. So I built a lovely house just for Elders simmies, specially for those who are tired after a long life of work, and who would like to start a new life in a little house and in a quiet place...

This is a little house, fully furnished (as all my houses) with two bedrooms (one for the Elder couple and one for the grandchildren for when they visit their grandparents), 2 bathrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and a study. But the garden is quite big, so your elders will be able
to do gardening...

No CC for this house.

Only base game is needed. (I only have base game)

I hope you'll like my house!

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.

Thank you Amylet! This is very nice, I too only have the base game and I think we need more cute houses like this one for our game.

Oh this is such a lovely lot. The layout of the rooms is great and I also like the heart-shaped pathway in front of the house - at least for me it looks like it.

It wasn't supposed to be an heart, but why not?

Yes! Garden space for gardening! You know what my simmies like, if I had any TS3 simmies.
