Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Ok, so it's more of a tie up at the dock and not really go anywhere kind of boat, but the feel is totally the same! Now your shy, outdoors loving sims can enjoy some peace and quiet. This houseboat is perfect for those solitary sims with a little kitchen, bathroom, living area and bunkbed. It even has a computer! This lot has been playtested, so there shouldn't be any issues.

Now, on to some pictures!

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.

The colour choices are perfect and I marvel at how much of a house you truly got to fit in this tiny, charming boat. Well done :D

This is the most beautiful Sims 3 lot on Mod the Sims, its so small, but its so perfect. Me being a person who loves inclosed and cozy spaces absolutely loved this lot, and so did my sim. Thank you!
