Camp Willow is a residential, multi-family house. The lot has four individual cabins with minimal furnishings and one large community building. The lot was designed around a Sim that loves the outdoors, loves gardening, and is a bit of a loner. It is the ultimate starter home coming in with a low, low price of just §4,339. Perfect for any single or couple just starting out that doesn't want to spend all their hard earned cash on their home.

The Cabin
The private cabin comes with a double bed, a dresser, a bookcase, a loveseat, and a hamper to keep the cabin tidy. It has a private porch that you can add a nice bench to it for all the Sim voyeurism you want to partake in or maybe add a telescope (moar voyeurism!) or an easel. The cabin was designed for one or two adult Sims, but you can easily add a crib/single bed for one child.

The Community Building
Sharing a bathroom isn't too bad is it?! Maybe! The community building houses two bathrooms with one containing a basic shower. It has a very basic kitchen with plenty of counter space, you can either cook indoors on the stove or grill outside. Inside has a small dining table with seating for two but there are several picnic tables outside. There is also a foosball table for a bit of entertainment.

The Grounds
Outside you will find a nice fire pit outback, but watch out for burnt marshmallows! Well unless your Sim likes them. Outside by the firepit you will find a couple of grills and picnic tables, perfect for fish grilling. Disclaimer: Fish not included! There is also a small play area for kids and adults. You will also find a few plants around the lot for your gardening type Sims. None are in perfect condition, but all are well tended and loved.

I have all EP/SPs but pretty sure I've used only Base+LN objects. If you have your Base+LN fully patched you will be able to successfully install this lot. You may get a warning about objects missing and will be replaced if I used anything from an EP you don't have. Doors have all been assigned to NPC's but I'm not sure if that follows through when the lot is packaged and shared. To assign to NPC's enter testingcheatsenabled true in the cheat console, then ctrl+shift click the NPC doors and select Make NPC Doors.

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.

Wonderfully different take on the apartment concept! I have several outdoors-loving, self-employed, angler loners who send their thanks for these cabins.

It's amazing to see how much is possible with such a low price. Even though it's a simple home it has a clean and homely look, the landscaping is also great.

Not a big deal though, I can move it. But just thought you might want to know. :P

Random Hey! You got the redneck version! :D

Now I'm incredibly curious which version I actually packaged, as this lot has been in the works for weeks. This is the same version sitting in my town and no random dishwasher appeared in the backyard. The firepit, picnic tables, and grills are all base game. So anyone getting this redneck version, please send me a pic!

Pretty cool. Communal living at it's most basic, earthy nature. This would be really great for those mult-sibling adult families who need the room to be, well, adults. Great work, as usual :-)

It is awesome that you took time to do this! I don't think that I would have the patience, so I appreciate it when people are willing to do this and then share it with others. Thank you!

I'm having a problem with mine. One of the cabins works fine, but when I try to edit one of the other ones it says I can't. What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: Never mind, I figured it out. You have to use the "buydebug" cheat and change the lot to a public lot. Then you can get rid of the public room markers.
