I put this lot together really quick because I needed some extra places for my Townies to live, and I thought you guys might find it useful as well. Who DOESN'T get tired of the popup message telling you that you need more homes open before new people can move into town? Just sprinkle some of these around your town. The footprint is small and anybody can afford it. Base game items only, no CC.

Lot Size: 15x10

Lot Price (unfurnished): §7,830

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.

Just right for my... "less than wealthy" Sims who live near a "certain" old warehouse. Thank you.
