If the title isn't right, blame the internet, not me - I can't speak Italian xD

My Great Uncle...
...Is one awesome guy. He is not only the best cook in the world, but he grows his own veggies, makes his own freakin' wine, and stares death in the face (if he could still see out of the front of his eyes...different story!) constantly. He is the man I was named after and would probably have to be, if it was acceptable to pick favorites, my most favorite family member. So, when I got WA way back when it came out, I started to build a house that drew some influences from him. Though this isn't his house, it has minor resemblances. The small kitchen, a beyond unreasonable amount of plants, and a giant bundle of clutter, and a very noticeable "Home" vibe.

But, getting back on topic, this house is perfect for a lived in feel. Clutter, plants, awful wall paper and a guest room ready for any occasion! What else could a retired sim want?


(Mhm...still more.)

Contains:
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 2
Kitchen
Dining Room
Garden
Work Bench / Filing System / Quick Snack / Appliance Holder MEGA-TABLE.
Extra Room (For Laundry)

Lot Size: 20x30
Furnished: 38, 631
Unfurnished: 25, 438

...Unfortunately for my uncle, he lost his home around the time I turned seven. He now lives with my grandmother, tending her gardens, making spaghetti and other food I can't live without. It honestly makes me proud to be named after him (like you care, but hey, I gotta sell the house some how )

Except...he gets the awesome name. "Luigi"...all I get is "Louis"

Until next time, happy creating!

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.

Ok so when i clicked on downloads today and saw this picture, i was like ":o that is such a QBUILDERZ type photo and lot, who be stealing his styles?!" then i read 'QBUILDERZ' ....

This is fantastic, and your pictures are so kickass, i LOVE the panoramic, but the best one has to be your scewed one that isn't vertical, that one is awesome You are incredibly good at making really unique and interesting lots that other people just don't make!

Isn't Louis the French/Old German version of Luigi? Anyway, I love all your houses. This one is amazing (and more so considering how reasonably priced it is).
Thank you for sharing this!

I love it! I've been scouring CC for nice houses that are less than 100k simoleons and don't require all the expansions. They're not so easy to find. This is gorgeous. Thanks!
