Your hobbit sims do not longer have to live in a hole in the ground. Let them move into a true hobbit-like dwelling.

This is my third hobbit house - exclusively made for you MTS LotR-lovers out there. It's a Buckland hobbit home and therefore it looks a bit different from those in Hobbiton.

All rooms of the house are on groundlevel. From the main door your hobbit sim enters the entrance hall which leads to the fireside lounge. This room links to all other rooms - the bathroom on the left, the bedroom straight ahead and the kitchen on the right side. The back door of the house leads to the backyard where your sim could have a small vegetable garden, let his own pipe-weed grow or plant whatever he'd like to.

Even though I had a single hobbit sim in mind while creating it, this house also accomodates a couple if necessary.

The lot price for the unfurnished house is 23,733 $imoleons.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 47,685 (furnished)

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

You might be true but for the moment we have neither round doors nor round windows available in the game. Should this unfortunate given fact ever change I'll definitely update all my hobbit houses as soon as possible

Apart from that... we don't have seen many hobbit houses from the inside, have we?

I was just wondering something is there any chance you'll be creating anymore of the LOTRO buildings from other places too? I am going to attempt it but don't hold your breath! ;-) I do know,however, you do AWESOME work especially for what we are limited to at the moment! Thanks for your hard work!

I actually wanted to create many more of the LOTR buildings and/or places but I'm not much online and/or at the computer these days. It'll take a while until I'm fully back here at MTS with new creations. Sorry about that. But I'm happy that you like my work - thank you for your feedback.
