This cottage was inspired by a house I saw online. I felt this cottage suited the world Dragon Valley, however, it does not need to be placed in that world if you choose not to. The location indicated on the map had a lot previously in that spot. I bulldozed it and put a smaller lot in its place to lower the price of the cottage. Price with the lot is: 21,558

This home was based off of a starting price of 22,000 Simoleons. A family of that size would consist of approx. 2 YA-Elder, 1 Teen, 1 Child, 1 Toddler/Baby 1 Horse or 2 Teen, 1 Child, 0 Horse. I chose to put as much of the cost into the exterior of the home and left only the necessities for the sim to live inside the house. There was no CC used in this lot. 1 Item from Midnight Hollow from EA Store:
Truly Traditional Gable


If you do not of any of the expansion packs or store content the lot will still work. The game will just replace what you don't have with something that you do have.

All my lots are tested, however, if you find something I missed please let me know.

Thank you for all of your support!

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.
