Hey man,
I don't know why, but it overcame me. I've never done this before, and I'm happy with the result.
For this home I'm also especially thankful for the CAStool

This cottage has been built with recycled, found, restored and cheaply bought items, and rocks an octagonal open floorplan, with the only enclosed room being the bathroom which also act as seperator for the different living areas.

The garden is open, has many seating possibilities, a relaxing fire pit and offers lots of straggling flora and ofcourse harvestable veggies and fruits.

The bright colors and overall happy and natural vibes will sure bring joy to your Hippies!

Built on a 30x30 lot and costs ยง47.540 F and ยง20.670 UF

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.
