This "house-boat" is from the Charles Trenet's self designed house in Juan les Pin in the French Riviera . He was a singer during the 30-50's, the original author of the "Beyond the sea" standard song La Mer and other french standard like "Douce France". It is a "simification" of the real one I saw on TV (I have not the plan) but I found some pics and make it with the (poor) TS3 stuff.

You can see it with google earth : 43' 35" 04.75 N 07'04"54.50E


It is built in a méditeranéan landscaped garden with a swmingpool, dinning and rest places. Thera are 3 bedrooms an office and a sports room on the level. Each level have larges terrases.


In the zip file you find my first TS3 patern I need to paint the red/green stripes on right wall... thanks to the MTS tuts and Delphy's tools !
As TS3 dont package custom content you must install it in your "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Les Sims 3\Mods\Packages\Patterns" or use the useful Delphy's TS3 Install Helper Monkey

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.

Sure but it is built on a hill... (have a look on Google Earth) and water is not really funny to landscape and furnish

You know a site allowing re-upload of free build/buy stuff in lots ? Help us to update the list !

It reminds me of the upper decks of a cruiseline class ship. I also appreciate how clean it looks. 10/10

this is in the main text. (if needed create sub directory)
Don't know why EA allow to use package files in game/build/create and don't put them in the sim3pack...
