Hello there everyone! Today I am pleased to bring you a home that I'm pretty sure is the only one of its kind!
Have you ever wanted to bring the feel of the rainforest indoors? Now you can with this unique jungle themed home! Inspired by The Rainforest Caf�, this home is designed to bring all the elements of a lush and tropical rainforest indoors and includes everything from an indoor fishing pond, floor to ceiling aquariums, lush vegetation both indoors and out, jungle themed furnishings, and even a real waterfall in the kitchen! The home is small, designed for a single Sim or a couple. I utilized many different aspects including colored lights to help set the jungle mood, texture patterns that create the feel of a jungle environment, and plenty of fun animations using the fog emitters to bring it all to life. These effects include stocking the aquariums with animated fish, sharks, and anemones, placing animated bubbles in the water, and creating an entire functioning waterfall that spills into a pond in the kitchen! The indoor pond can even be used to fish by your Sims, thus leveling up your angling skill!
The exterior of this home was built without any symmetry, instead making it to look like a rocky cave surrounded with lush and tropical vegetation. There are actually no windows in this home, but they don't really matter in a setting like this. The rocks protrude to the inside of the home as well making the walls appear to be made partly of natural rock formations.

I really hope you enjoy this little jungle themed home. It was a blast to build and is really fun to live in as well. Hopefully you can find a place for it in your games as well! Happy Simming!

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.
