Retro Modern is a great house for a group of friends to share. There are 3 double bedrooms all with their own bathrooms (By changing the beds this house would be great for a family too). There is a large open plan eat in kitchen / dining room and lounge looking onto the patio and pool. There is parking for two cars and room for more (the cars shown are not included in the package file). This house is built on a small lot so will fit most lots in game.

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.

WOW! I found the blue prints to this house a while ago and couldn't figure out how to recreate it. You did an amazing job!
