Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A small country-style house that looks like it was last renovated some time in the early 70es. The "garden" is a little unkempt, as well. It's furnished for 3 sims and has a small terrace in the back yard.

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen
1 x dining
1 x living room

The entrance room is just large enough to fit a dresser in there. Upstairs in the living room is still space for a desk or something like that; you could also put a small bathroom in there.

Built on the smallest lot I have (16x18), so it can be rotated in any direction on every other lot. Playable from at least two static camera angles, two sides of the house would look good as a street side.

Prices given below (F = Furnished; U = Unfurnished) are when placed on a regular 20x30 lot.

Please don't PM me with questions. Post questions/feedback about this particular house in this thread, generic build mode stuff in the Build Mode forum. Thanks.

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.

Very cute! I love the layout and the living room on the top floor.

Just a question though, how can it be called a Starter if it costs more than $16,000?

byronh29, how much a household starts out with in TS3 depends on the number of sims. A single sim gets 16.000§, every additional adult 2.000§, every additional child/teen 1.000§.

Stuff for TS2 · TS3 · TS4 | Please do not PM me with technical questions – we have Create forums for that.

Just so you know, I am systematically deleting all the standard game houses and replacing them with Wee Barnoids and tiny Victorians. My town should have a statue of you. I'm even doing multiples of the same Wee Barnoids and just changing the outside colors. These are perfect.

This is a great house! I wish I was better at the whole roof thing! I really love this house, reminds me of my parents beach house.

This lot reminds me of a lot I would see near the beach in the south coast of NSW, Australia.
