Hello again

I return to you, bringing with me the third installment in a series of houses called Sunshine Estate.

This time the house is quite different from the others in that it doesn't have a separate bedroom. Now there is a very good reason for this and that is that this house is for an avid hobbyiest so the bedroom has been converted to a crafts room. Included in this room are various hobby-related items such as a desk, a bookshelf and an easel but this room really could be anything rather than generic. It could be a home gym, a science lab, an art studio and so on. So get those creative juices flowing! XD

The interior and exterior decor are similar to the previous houses. The only difference is some extra landscaping to give it a bit of a boho artsy feel.

I did my best to cleanly integrate the bedroom into the living space which I think went quite well The bedroom, lounge and dining are all integrated into one living space so this is nice and big and it still feels open rather than cramped.

So the rooms are:

1 Bathroom
Crafts Room
Entrance Hall (as always just a partition)


Fire Alarm above Cooker

Lot Size: 15x10
Price: Unfurnished: $10,425
Furnished: $17,967
So could well be a starter home if some of the decoration is taken out

Whilst the upload is specified as only needing the base game there is some EP content which can easily be replaced which is:

Bathroom Sink: Late Night

I hope you enjoy this new take on a house and stay tuned for part 4

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.

Wonderful starter house. I could easily use it as a starter, and probably will.
