Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This isn't exactly a request, but I was asked what I thought a Utah house would look like. My previous knowledge of this place was limited, I knew that Utah was a place with lots of mountains and mormons... Obviously I needed to do some research. After getting some inspiration from Street View, this is my impression of a relatively new Utah house.

What I found was that most of the houses has a mix of earth colored stucco, stone, brick and/or some wood. The houses with good views tend to have massive open living rooms with wall-to-ceiling windows. I don't know what these houses look like on the inside, but I assume the trend is dark, earthy tones as well.

The house I decided to make is not based on any specific house, but it's my general impression of Utah designs.

First floor has a two stoy foyer, two story kitchen, a living room, dining area and a bathroom.

The second floor has three bedrooms, one office/nursery and one bathroom.

The house has several paintings that were painted when testing the house, I hope those show up with the house! If not, I will upload a new version shortly.

While I wasn't too impressed with the general Utah architecture, I love the landscaping! They often use large rocks, shrubs, dirt and lawn mixed together. I tried replicating that for the yard, and also made a nice backyard following the same technique.

Big thanks to luvalphvle for inspiring me to make this house, I am really happy with it!

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.
