51 Thanks Say Thanks
This is the first house I've built without any store CC, built originally for Q's foundation contest and re-edited for upload. It can house three sims and a toddler or baby with plenty of toys and space to keep those younger sims entertained as mom and dad cuddle in front of the fire.

First floor:

Second floor:


CC Included:
Simcredible's Teach me Passion Shelf Look under Bedrooms -> Page 3

CC Not Included:
Salfindragon's Wood Wall Paneling Necessary. Without this the house will not look right
SIMul8rReviews' More Slots!: Base Game Shelves The shelf next to the fireplace. It's decorative but I do suggest downloading it.
HugeLunatic's Natural Garden Edgers Decorative for the backyard

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price:
- Furnished: 56,134
- Unfurnished: 34, 965

Additional Credits:
Big thanks to Q for the foundation, Heaven and everyone else in create who dealt with my freak outs while building this house.

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.
