As much as I love Bridgeport and the apartment living aspect of it for my Sims, I don't love the limits that come with it. I would start with a single Sim or a young couple in an apartment and it would work out fine until I'd start adding to the family. And if you're like me, I'd still like my Sims to live in the city, but really don't want to move them out over the bridge where all of the "Posh" Sims live. However, the lots that are just outside the city are very small (20x20) and the houses that are already on the lots just aren't to my taste.

So, for my like-minded Simmers, I have decided to start a series of small, livable, craftsman style houses built especially for those 20x20 lots just outside the city. Each house will be fully furnished and have its own set of features to set it apart from the others, but they will all have several things in common: fit perfectly on a 20x20 lot, a cozy yet easily navigable layout, have a fully landscaped yard, and plenty of charm!

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.
