Hello all! This is my newest starter home upload. It is a simple, one-story, ranch-style house. It has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a combination eat-in kitchen and living space. There's a patio out back for adding a grill or hobby space, plus open land for gardening. The bedrooms are on the larger side, but have been sparsely furnished in keeping with the starter home style. Either could easily be converted into hobby space or a nursery.

I actually built this home awhile ago but never uploaded it.

This house is base game compatible and CC free.

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.
