Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I have been inspired by lakes lately, so I desided to build a little home by the lake.



The lot:
2 buildings
a lake with fishspawners (type lake, from common to rare)
garden with appletrees, tomatoes and grapewines
pretty landscaping

The mainhouse:
kitchen - dining
livingroom
2 bedrooms
2 bathrooms
laundry
wrap-around-porch
a pier

The guesthouse:
kitchen - livingroom
bedroom
toilet
porch

No CC

Size: 64x54
Prize: 125180/71613

Where to place?
The lot was made in Sunset valley, and there is only one spot you can place it.



By default that lot is a park/fishing spot, so before placing you must delete the existing lot, and then change the lot type to residential.

Note about compatibility:
The lot was made with patch 4.3, you need at least 1.12/2.6/3.3/4.0 to play. You also need to have WA and Ambitions installed.

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.

Beautiful! I love building on this lot, too, because of the great view of the waterfall. Your buildings fit the scenery so well - great job. Thank you for sharing this lot!

Very much likely the launcher will nag about not having all ep's, so I guess it won't let you install this :/

Try deleting the original lot all together and then replace it with a residential.

This is my new favorite house to play with! The interior design is perfect, great use of space. Thank you.
