Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I made this house a while ago, but decided I wanted to upload it! I did some finishing touches to it, and it looks great! I wanted it to resemble a larger midwestern home from perhaps the 1990's.



Outside:
The house features a mix of gable and jerkinhead roofs, all wrapped in white siding and brick accents. The house has a prominent 4-car garage in front, and a gabled porch leading to the entrance of the house.


Inside:
The inside is pretty conservative, with dark colored walls and wooded moldings. All the rooms are quite big, and there are many of them. There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
As usual, the bedrooms are upstairs, and the living rooms and kitchen is downstairs.

Price furnished: 140,630
Price unfurnished: 81, 059

World used: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail...assetId=8212432

Lot Size: 25x40
Lot Price: 140, 630

Number of bedrooms: 4 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

For this house I used an uncompleted world, meaning it only has residential streets with houses, and no town hall, etc., so you won't find this world anywhere.

However, I useally use a world named Oakland for my uploads:

I also have a few more worlds you might want to check out:

This is such a classy lot that I am lost in admiration. The architectural shapes are perfectly well balanced and harmonious. You have done a great job with this cc free building: It's so difficult to build great houses with just ea objects...
Thank you so much for spoiling us with this gorgeous work.

Great house. The architecture is lovely, the roof is amazing and It looks really realistic and welcoming. Maybe more work on the landscaping would make your houses even better. I like all of your houses. I think that your style is really recognizable which is amazing for a creator.

Wow, you have serious talent to be able to make such amazing houses without CC. When I try, it looks like trash (though most of my buildings do XP Building isn't my strongpoint.)
Thanks a ton of uploading these beautiful CC free houses!
Liar liar, pants on fire.
