"Backwater Road Series"
This is a small series of houses I'm working on for TS3 that are primary wood cabin type structures, usually surrounded by trees and water.. kind of like mini lakehouses or cabins up in the mountains if you will.

Notabridge Cabin
Cunningly designed to bridge the troubled waters between "street" and "home".. so cunning, infact, that it's not really a bridge at all!

1 Bedroom1 Bathroom
Kitchen / Livingroom area

Side Notes
This is the 2nd house in my "Backwater Road" series, a small 1 bedroom cabin suitable for a single person or a couple.. perfect for those that prefer solitude or just want to get away from the hubub of city life.

Have done some basic testing, everything seems in order (all objects seem to be accessable so far as I could see). If anyone finds any issues please let me know and I'll try to correct them as promptly as possible.

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: $23,680 (F) / $17,788 (Unf)

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.

Very nice house! I like it when the house is incorporated into a water feature like this. Can't wait to get it into my neighborhood. I am thinking that I will have to create a "Backwater" area to incorporate all of your homes. Thank you!
