This is my first Sims 3 upload. It's a modern beach house and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and is ready to move in. I made this in SV but moved it into Riverview, but it looked way better in SV, since there are beach lots. Anyway, the lot was tested and runs great. I hope you like I did forget one light in the cooking area of the kitchen, so add one.



Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: Furnished 160,195 - Unfurnished 118,000

Custom Content by Me:
- BeachHouse

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

You must have the expansion 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.

You should totally make a starter lot in this style. I can never manage to get over a hundred grand. :P

Occasionally insane, but always friendly.

Thanks, guys

Nic712, try the criminal career. After meeting with coworkers and getting your skills up, stay on "do side jobs" then check your family inventory in buy mode often, then sell all the items. One of my Sims averages around $12,000 a day now just from wages, then an extra 5 to 10 thousand every couple of days in stolen goods. And I'll probably try making a smaller version of it anyway

That's a great tip, and awesome. Looking forward to the starter-ish lot. :P
The stainless steel look is awesome, and it blends so well with the walls and flooring. ^.^

Default Finding homes in game
I downloaded some custom houses for Sims 3, including this one, and they are installed in my game----but I can not locate the houses. Can you help?

It`s beautiful..on the out side.

There is just way too much space inside, and the rooms are way past unnecessarily big.

..It`s not a Mall, is it?

Any reason why it's not in a SimsPack file like all of the other houses? Plus the launcher can't install it. Will it still show up in the Houses Bin?

Probably a Big Party house and waiting for new EPs or custom content objects.

It's a luxury home, look at the price, of course it's going to be spacious, there's only so much stuff you can put into the house with the base game. :P

Is this house for the sims 2 or 3? I see some mentions trying a career and those are in sims 2.

I like bigger houses. I can't stand Sims bumping into each other, standing with their hands on their hips for 20 seconds, so yeah, again, I like bigger houses sometimes with "way past unnecessarily big" rooms.

It's a Sim 3 house. You can have careers in TS3, Dreammaker
