Happy Valentine's Day! ♥ I made this cute little cottage for any nice Sim couples out there. It fits two (or one) Sims perfectly. It could fit more, you'd just have to convert the study or art studio into a bedroom. It's built in the Tudor style, and is landscaped with red and pink flowers.

First Floor: a living room with couches, a TV, and a video game console; a small restroom with a washing machine; another living room area with a fireplace and couch; a dining area; and a small kitchen.
Second Floor: a master bedroom with a full bath; a study; and an arts studio with an easel and pottery wheel.
Outside: small garden with 6 autoplants and clothesline (there isn't a dryer).

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.

What a lovely house. I very much like the look of it. The floorplan and the landscaping is great, too.
