I missed building in the Sims 3, so I went back to it and happily embraced the CFE cheat to build again the things I cannot even attempt in the Sims 4. This home is the first result! LOL It was a trip down memory lane (and a major memory worker to get things as close as possible without seeing the real thing!)

This is a replica of my childhood home located in British Columbia, although it's pretty darned common and can be found pretty much anywhere!

It's a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath colonial home with a split level entry going to the main living area and the basement. The basement isn't fully finished (it looks the same as it did when Dad bought the house brand new) and is partially furnished, but it can have rooms added if you choose. The original was built in 1975 and was decorated by a guy, so it wasn't too fancy but not too boring either. There were no women in the house aside from a 7 yr old girl who was a tomboy, so no feminine touches anywhere!



No custom content was used, but of course I did use some store items to help complete the look.

Fantasy Activity Table

Hydrocombo Sink

VDBM-880 Wall Mirror

Marsters Drawer Bed

Seasons Wall Decal Pack (Registration Gift) For the Spring Decal

Classy Chassis Dining Chair

Alvar Vintage Famous Food Processor

Steampunk Kitchen- Rivited and Rustic Oven Fume

Bookshelf Concr�te

Wonderfully Woven Hanging Chair

Excessinator Stove

The Dramatic Palm

Elegant Swirls Deluxe

The Sims Classic- Mountain Man's Mountain Lighter

Clutter Cutter End Table

Old Skool Lowrider

I guess that's more than some....

I had loads of fun recreating and play-testing this home, and I hope you enjoy it!!

As always, if you find any problems I may have missed, please let me know in the comments and I'll repair them.

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.
