Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
One last house before the semester starts on Monday! I couldn't think of a name for this, so I just threw an aspen tree on the lot and decided to make it the sequel home to my original Aspen Grove house that I built back in October 2015. Please excuse my lack of originality with the name.

I wanted to get this house uploaded yesterday (January 19) because it was my birthday! That didn't happen, though, as I didn't finish the house until the wee hours of the morning of January 20th. Oh well. I tried! Maybe next year.

The house interior is similar to that of both my "Puddlewick Mcmansion" houses. It's a style I like to do...kind of formal, kind of tacky. If you don't like it you can change it!

Ambitions is used in this house, and may be necessary for the house to look as it does in the pictures. I don't think I used too many items from that pack, but I definitely used some in each room. A door from University Life is used as the front door, so if you don't have that pack then the game will replace it for you. Just thought I'd let you know.

The garage is just for show, you can't fit an actual car in it. If you want you could turn it into a fifth bedroom.

The yard has A LOT of terrain paint. The entire back yard should be covered. If it looks uneven then it's more than likely a result of the way Sims 3 places lots, and not my doing. Sims 3 is weird.

Again, the file isn't catching the CC roof. I don't know why. It's not necessary, but makes the house looks nice. Get it here:

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.

Thank you!
This is a very good build. I like how the colors interplay, and the style of the house. I, as a builder as well, must complement you on the time it must have taken to do this. See, I probably could build something like that, if I had the patience (Simoleons and a better computer as well) to build at that level. But, for someone who has done it, I must say it has been done well. Good job.
