This is a great starter home for a family…or two! Each unit contains three bedrooms, two and a half baths, all upgraded appliances, fenced-in backyard, and two allotted parking spaces. Have a small family? The default for this lot is Unit 1 as the player apartment and Unit 2 as an NPC apartment. Have a larger family or a couple generations that want to live near each other? Unit 2 is the fully-furnished mirror image of Unit 1. Just remove all the hidden lot markers, unmake the NPC door, and unlock the fence connecting the backyards. Or if for some reason your Sim prefers living on the right instead of the left, just move the markers over from Unit 1 to Unit 2 and switch front doors. This multi-function lot is all yours for under §21,000 per unit!

CC-free and Custard-checked, although items from some EPs, SPs and the Store are used. If you don't own the items listed below, the game will replace them with comparable items. (Check out the list to see what was used where. You still may be able to download even if you're missing some things.)

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.
