So grandma has died and left something for you in the will.... A House!...well its not quite what you thought.

What are you going to do? At least its cheap enough for you to upkeep until you finally get your career on track.

Rustic Starter House
1 Bedroom
1 Bathroom

Lot size: 20x30

This is a great house for a sim starting out maybe add a roommate or two to really appreciate that house .

The furniture are a mixture of old and new( after all your sim needs some comfort) because I wanted it to look old and lived in. Also its a little mismatched to add to the effect.

I wanted it to look like an old vacation cabin that nobody really maintains anymore.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 14383
Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Starter Furnishings
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.
