Just a simple starter house, complete with everything you need to start your life.
All for a nice price.

This is a small house, so there’s not too much to say about it. This is actually the first time I put some effort into a starter house.

Main floor
The house provides all the basics: a complete bathroom, a couple’s bedroom and a kitchen. Also offers the main objects, like the bookshelf, a computer, phone, TV, stereo and easel. There’s no chess table, but there are some in the public parks in the neighborhood, not that far.

The sliding door in the kitchen/dining area leads to the patio with a chaise, the easel and a grill.
The lot still has a lot of avaiable space for future expansion.

Lot details
Lot size: 20x30
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Price furnished: 15.666 §
Price unfurnished: 9.756 §

The lot contains NO custom content.
Though I think it looks better on a corner lot, it isn’t one.
The location I used for the lot is 43 Water Lily Lane, in Sunset Valley.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: See lot details.

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom

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.

Wow.... I really like this home, in and out! Is it just me, or did you build the foundation with a diagonal? I think that's really cool, if you did. If you didn't I still love this home!
