Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Have you been considering a move to the suburbs? Do you need a place to settle down and raise a family? If you answered yes to the above questions, never fear; The Adelaide is the perfect home for you. With 4 bedrooms, 3 and a half baths, and an open living area, this home is sure to fill all your needs through the generations.

Wesley and Rebecca Laburnem acquired The Adelaide when they were young newlyweds. Of course, it wasn't quite the beauty that it is now. With a lot of tender love and patience, they were able to fix her up into the treasure you see before you. The Labernums have many treasured memories here; from crossing the threshold as newlyweds, to the birth of their son and then the arrival of their daughter not long after. They celebrated many birthdays around the island in the kitchen and spent many loved nights together in front of the fire. They even celebrated their golden anniversary in The Adelaide. Of course, they are gone now while Elizabeth has gotten married and moved with her husband to his hometown and Jackson is busy traveling the globe as a famous soccer star. This home is in need of new inhabitants who will love it as much as Wesley and Rebecca did.

The Adelaide was playtested by me for multiple sim days. The dining room has 2 chairs of the 8 that cannot be sat in due to the doors. You can either replace the doors or use a smaller table. I felt that it wasn't a big issue as my sims still used the room and were also able to use the bar; win-win! Other than that, there were no issues with routing. In fact, with the number of doors throughout the home, I received no foot stomping or queue drops due to faulty placement.

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.

Okay, so this is amazing. I'm super super jealous of your skills! Especially how everything inside is refreshingly simple. I hope with practice I can create something this good :D

Not really fair to put Store stuff in the "Recquired" custom content.

That aside, this is stunning; it's rare to see a house that's decorated so beautifully, I doubt I'd change a thing.

"Required to look as shown" is what that one Store door is. I don't really view store content as any different than something from an EP or SP. Of course, just like with those, you can download it anyway and replace the missing objects. Not having the item only means that it won't appear as is in the pictures, not that you can't use it at all. However, I totally believe that door is worth it!

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I really put heart and soul into decorating this and tested with a family close to my heart.

I love it! Do you mind sharing what objects/stuff you used that requires showtime? that would be greatly appreciated

Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

Off the top of my head, I know it is, at the very least, the pool table in the garage and the pull up bar in the teen boy bedroom. I'd have to check for some of the smaller deco stuff.

This house reminds me so much of a house I used to play with once upon a time ago.....but that was Sims 2.......
Is there anyway this could be built for the Sims 2 because I am not a good builder (more of a story-teller) and the layout is tricky for me anyway......??
