Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Charles is a craftsman-style cottage built with the avowed bachelor or bachelorette in mind. It's so cozy there's not even room for a double bed! it would be ideal for an Unflirty Sim who Dislikes Children or has taken some kind of monastic oath.

This little house was inspired by one in my hometown, and I wanted to get the proportions just right. That means it's a fairly tiny house with only one small bedroom (but TWO bathrooms, oddly enough!). However, part of the downstairs area (where the easel is) could be expanded easily and turned into a master bedroom if your single Sim finds him or herself asking some poor sap to move in.

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.
