Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A small, empty factory building. A garage, one room and toilets on the ground floor, a loft area with roof access and another room upstairs.

It's currently zoned as residential but that was mainly so that I could put the mailbox/trashcan in sensible places – it's not livable as is (but it could certainly be converted, or turned into a community lot and used as teen hangout or custom workplace or something).

The lot size is 20x25; most of the screens below are taken after I placed it on a slightly larger lot (I didn't change anything but adjust the the terrain paint a little bit). The "LotOverview" one shows the actual lot borders (this is where I packaged it). Prices below (F = "furnished", U = unfurnished) are when placed on a 20x25 lot.

Built in 1.8.25.

Base game content only, but it requires Riverview (otherwise the water tank and boxes will be missing).

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 33.307§ F, 30.507§ U
Number of bedrooms: Not Applicable
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Unfurnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

i completely agree with gutless! thanks so much for sharing this i have built a whole neighbourhood with your backdoor lane lots in the sims 2, it was my favourite place to play. i live in a very industrial area, i don't want my sims to live in sugar villages either. how boring thanks again and i hope to see more of this!
