This is a one bedroom, one bath starter home. It comes completely furnished with a smoke detector, TV, computer, chess table, bookcase, lighting, appliances and sleeping and seating for one or two Sims.

There is NO driveway it is just terrain paint.

Furnished - $15,878
Unfurnished - $12,279

Yes, I got totally carried away with the create a style tool! But it is so nice to have matching anything and everything that you want. The nice thing is that if you not like the color of something you can use the color palette tool and change it the way you like and it does not cost you Sims a dime (dollar)! So don’t buy and replace it costs $$$’s!

I’m sure that anyone that has played Sims 3 has figured out that you can click on the door and tell it to set it as the front door but I had to add this just in case someone had not noticed! I hated that we didn’t have that option in Sims 2!

Yes, my card sucks! Ingore horrible pics!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

This is cute. Thanks romagi... the starter homes that come with the game are kinda ugly. And the designers have NO taste in decor >.>

I agree with Tasali that the starter homes that come with the game are kinda ugly. I hated having to choose one of them. I would hurry up and get my sims enough money to upgrade to a better home. Now I won't have to focus on moving so much and have some fun. Thank you so much for sharing and making the game better for me. RayB.
