Ahhh...my first upload, at last :D

Baan Rim Nam translates as House (Baan) by (Rim) Water (Nam). Might sound strange in English but in Thai, anyone who hear this phrase would imagine a peaceful home next to any source of calm water (river, pond, canal, etc.) and so it is. What outdoor lovers, anglers or gardeners could wish for more? This house is designed just for these lovely simmies alike.


Essential Information:

1 Bedroom
1 Extra room (can be convert into a single bedroom, study or recreational area)
1.5 Bathroom
+ Kitchen and Dining space
+ Open living room (literally open to the sun and breezes!)
+ Fishing pond & gardening space

Price? It's OMG!
Furnished: 18,534
Unfurnished: 15,950


Less than 20k! How affordable. Easy breezy for a couple, not to mention an extra space enough for a child. Ready to move in, what are you waiting for?

For anyone out there who is interested in some of the unfamiliar architectural features of traditional Thai houses back in like hundred and hundred of years, read here. To keep it short, I'll explain them in bullet points.

Why the high floor level?
  • As a measure against floods
  • Safety from wild beasts! ARGHH!
  • Storage space for ploughing set, wagon, boats, etc.
  • Handicraft making and chilling out area

How about the large open platform area? What are they for?
  • Sunshine!...and some spotless minds
  • Good clean air from the trees in Sunset Valley/Riverview
  • Breathtaking views, it's R&R everyday.
  • Yoga? Anyone?

Hmm...I think that's enough. Special thanks to www.thailandlife.com for these nifty information.



!Important Information!

No alarms (burglar and fire) and household telephone (since they all have cell phone) are installed in this unit. Good luck

Made with pride (how corny)


Enjoy

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.

Just lovely! And thank you *so much* for making a beautiful house that sims just starting out in life can afford. I'm always on the lookout for those.

This reminds me of the bay house my grandparents had when I was little. Very sweet.

It's very attractive! I like water on my lots, and I do like the elevated house design, as well as the disconnected rooms joined by the deck.

Thank you!

I'm glad you found it useful, I tried my best to make its history 'light and airy :P' 'cause it's never too late to learn, lol.
