Description

A delightful home that should appeal especially to those desiring home comfort on an economical expenditure.

This drab little bungalow is a re-creation of a 1922 Lewis Manufacturing Company home, found here. I did my best to (essentially) replicate the exterior and floor plan, with a couple necessary tweaks to the layout. The interior is purposefully dingy and plain; I imagine this is someone's grandma's house, and grandma hasn't redecorated since 1973. The basement includes the third bedroom and an alarmingly pink bathroom, which would have been pretty trendy in the '50s but unfortunately hasn't yet been updated.

The backyard features a patio, small garden, and a rickety playground suitable for children who enjoy wading through knee-high weeds and dry shrubs.
  • 20x40 lot (3 Haviture Way—vacant lot in Point Ouerbacker)
  • §40,586 | §27,908
  • 3 bd/2 ba

Custom Content

I used the following custom content, which you should get if you want it to look like the pictures:



Installation

Unzip the file downloaded, and place the resulting .package file in your Library folder. The lot will appear in your lot bin when you start the game. Keep in mind that the lot bin displays lots in the order they were created, NOT in the order you installed them. It may be helpful to temporarily empty your Library folder of all other files before starting your game, so you can find this lot more easily.

Lot Size: 20x40
Lot Price (furnished): 40,586
Lot Price (unfurnished): 27,908

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.

@rainaelf On the downloads page of my website, you can search for 30x20 to see everything I’ve built on that size.
