I have dreamed last night that I was sleeping in this house ... I still dreaming to sleep in that house… in real life… but it’s only a dream…
I tried to reproduce the boathouse of Tom Hanks located in Seattle… I never seen the house, I found the photos on internet.
Inside is only my imagination. I build 3 bedroom, 4 bath, and almost all other room like open space.

Price furnished 110038
Price unfurnished 66201
Lot size 40x40

Build with patch 1.55 and University EP (I have all EP and SP less Island Paradise) but the objects used are from Pets, Generation, Season and University, Even if you don't have the EP that I used, the objects will be replaced by Base Game objects.
This is a lacustrian house, and I will never be able to build this house like a really houseboat, seeing the pre-made lot dimensions of houseboat on the new EP (founded on thesims3 site)
Do the technical limitation of the games, the house can’t be reproduced 100%.

The only CC used and included in rar as sim3Pack are 2 windows located on the front side of house (second level)

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.

I really like this house!
Just bought Island Paradise yesterday and haven't thought of a way to make a good house for my sims. Now I don't have to! Drinks on the deck anyone?
