Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Oooooops, looky. Another house from the Finn!

This is something I was building for my own fun, but happened to show at chat, and once again got told I should upload it. Well, that's fine, I actually wanted to.

a Little Dream is a small cottage, that consists of an open kitchen/living-/diningroom combo, a bathroom, and a bedroom in second floor. There is just enough room for two sims to start their life together.

You can see in the pictures, that two of the dining chairs are not "properly" placed with the table. The one slightly rotated causes a routing issue if the sim wants to sit on it, but if it bothers you, just take hold of it and snap it against the table. For me, the look and feel was more important.

The lot has been playtested. It's base game only, and you don't need to download any CC to use it (please see the credits though).

Lot Size: 10x15
Lot Price: 16957/13049

Additional Credits:
Buzzler, for comments when making the lot the first time, comforting me when I lost it, being such a critique when I rebuilt, and for the mental image when I finished. And as usual, for the awesome mods I used when building this.
Granthes, for the Curtain mod
Velocitygrass, for the Stencil 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.

This is so adorable! I love the ceiling and stairway - I can never seem to get those quite right! I'm kind of desperately hoping you'll keep creating awesome stuff, but do what's best for you!

oh, this is so cool! I love all the slightly crooked furniture, it does make it feel more homely.

I love wee lots!
That bedroom looks so very cozy!
And it's really awesome that you made a base game house!

Just a question... if I have game version 1.39, can I still play this?

Also, great little house, I love these types of things!
