I've been experimenting a little more with the floorelevation cheat and this is the result.
I believe the small curve in the roof is rather aesthetically pleasing, that's why i would like to share this house with you today.
I've also not added too many items and left a lot of open space. If you do have pets this makes routing easier. No annoying feet tapping Sims.

This lot includes:
- Neutral coloured Living room with piano
- Open kitchen with eating area
- 1 bathroom with bath and laundry items
- On the first floor 3 bedrooms coloured red/blue/green Room for 2 Sim children and 2 adults.
- Roof with bar and seating area. Telescope
- Exercise machines on the top floor. You could turn this into a study or a laundry roof if you want.
- Garden area with seating and a pond with actual fish that can be fished
- parking at the front door with a very sexy car


This house is based on architecture design group Studio H:T's "Shield House".
I wish we could curve walls a bit more like this is the Sims.

The seating area at the top is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view. The perfect spot for a P-A-R-T-Y!

A few notes:
- Because of the curvature of the roof the ceiling is slightly off, but you barely notice it.
- The mailbox shifts location when placed.
- Fishes!

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 want to thank you for making this awesome house. Other builders make great houses, but they add to much clutter. I really hate rotating around to see one room to another, but your house is AWESOME! i just love how it makes my gaming easy.
So again thank you!!!

I forgot to add, GREAT selections of colors, you have good taste.

Thanks everybody, your comments are much appreciated. I love the garden as much as you all do ^__^

@TudorMan23
Here is the link for the roof. If you understand the "constrainfloorelevation" cheat this guide will help you. It takes a few tries to get this right but you will prevail in the end!

@ua_tolga You're right it does look like a chocolate bar I never thought of that.

@hudy777DeSign Thank you for creating such useful windows! I also love your kitchens. If i could make a request? Some 45 degree full height or counter height windows would be awesome. Not the entire window though, just a corner cut off Just an idea...
