May I present you: The Mediterranean House!
A mediterranean looking house with the feeling of French influences.

On the first floor of the house is an open kitchen with diningarea, a livingroom and an area to relax.

I've also made my first attempt of a L-shaped stairs and it turned out lovely. You may think that the wall behind the lags and is broken, but that is because of the L-shaped stairs. If you're feeling annoyed by the backwall, you can remove the stairs and place a straight stairs. This will fix the wall.

On the second floor is a big L-shaped hallway connected to three rooms. The first is the bathroom, the second is the smallest bedroom and the third is the masterbedroom. From here, you got a great view on the backyard.

Outside is a huge garden with a pond, a place to park your vehicle, a terrace and a relaxingarea.

Information of the house:
- The lotsize is 25x20
- The price unfurnished is 38.805
- The price furnished is 63.794
- The expansionpacks you will need are AM, WA and LN

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.

Harlequin616: I've searched on Youtube! Just watch it very carefully and you'll figure it out!

Racer4o: Hold alt when rotating. You can do this with every object. When holding alt, you can also put it outside the slots!
