Hi, ok first of all, sorry for my bad english. Isn't my language but hope you can understand and help me please :c

So i had a house in my old pc and installed again my sims 3 and all of my game like, my family, a different house that i made, all my .package cc and so on
but the house that have all the cc that i use in my house isn't in my game now, cause it was a sim3pack and i don't found it in the files, totally forgot about that until i play the game and see that my house was almost empty.
I was searching this house for all the forums and sites but i can't find it, i remember that the sim3pack file was called "The Beach House", think that the original lot was 25x25
It's a brown house, 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom, a pool in the backyard, and has a basement that has another bedroom and bathroom, also has a car in the front yard or something like that, I think it is black, has a wheel in the back, and I THINK it is a mercedes, but i'm not sure of that
2 of the bedrooms are on the first floor. The bedroom in the left it's kinda asian style, the right bedroom it's more like teenager but girly, the bed of that bedroom and nightstand have pink accents, and in the front of bed had 2 armchairs like ottoman (idk) striped fuchsia yellow and white, and the third bedroom is on the second floor. And that's all, idk how else to describe it.
I know that it's too difficult but hope that someone can recognize it, I'll leave some screenshots of the only thing I have left of the house, at least so you can see the shape. If i get old screenshots of the original house with the cc i'm going to upload them. TYSM

It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Sorry.
My suggestion would be to decorate and fix it up to the best of your recollection. You seem to remember exactly how it looked.

This OP is a good example of providing a lot of information and it paid off. With the file name, description, and the pictures, I was able to find this exact house.

Oh, it really wasn't as difficult as it looked, he provided the file name and that made it easy. :D

Without it, then it would have to be done through visually checking screenshots of every house called the beach house. In the past I have done that for a few WCIF and found nothing. And it takes a bit of luck.

I mean, here's what I did for future reference:

1) I went to https://mediafiretrend.com/ and typed in "the beach house"
2) It's actually the 1st one, which is just pure luck. But looking at the list of files, they all seem to be Sims 3. So clicking the first one, I click the source url and it has screenshots. Since the OP posted the structure screenshots, I was able to tell it is the same house even without proper CC. And of course, he said it was brown.

And literally that was it. The house was created in 2012, so the fact the file still exist and wasn't wiped out by mediafire in the last purge is just pure luck. :)

------

Btw, if anyone noticed, there is a very nice deco CC for poolsteps in this house, it is in the screenshot. I actually downloaded this house and extracted that CC if anyone wants it since the original page is gone.

Just one caveat, the steps include an incline that goes deep into the pool, so it only works for rectangular pools of that width or multiple of the width. I do remember a long time ago I saw similar poolsteps CC that were round (Edit: http://www.simenapule.it/sims-3/objects/decoration?start=20), but I didn't like it b/c it looked unrealistic with steps going into so deep.

Alternatively, pro builders can actually create a pool with steps: https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=2625732

even if it wasn't hard for you to find it, it was for me and the fact that you take the time to do it means a lot. Thank you for that and for all <3
