Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Sort of a would-be starter – it's furnished for three and contains a few extras that could be removed to make it a starter that three sims can afford. It has an empty spare (bed)room, so it would work for a household of four as well.

1 x double bedroom
2 x single bedroom (1 empty)
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining
1 x living room

Built on the smallest lot I have (16x18), so it can be rotated in any direction on every other lot. Playable from at least two static camera angles; I think three sides of the house would work as a street side.

I'm not sure if the fireplace was a good idea – perhaps the couch needs to be moved away a bit, or I have a mod that increases the chance of fires (it might be, I don't remember), in any case one of my tester sims prompty set herself on fire 2 minutes into playtesting.

Prices given below (F = Furnished; U = Unfurnished) are when placed on a regular 20x30 lot.

Please don't PM me with questions. Post questions/feedback about this particular house in this thread, generic build mode stuff in the Build Mode forum. Thanks.

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.

I am glad to see you working with Sims3. Keep up the good work. I don't like Sims3 as much as TS2, but I am thinking it will get better.

This is one of the prettiest houses for sims3 I've seen yet- and it's a starter? You're amazing, plasticbox.

Gorgeous! I hope the stairs work well in-game, and I am sure they will. Thank you for this great-looking semi-starter and a functional home.

The stairs work fine, yes. I usually take screenshots while playtesting – you can often see the tester sims doing stuff on the upstairs floor, and I promise they didn't teleport there =).

Stuff for TS2 · TS3 · TS4 | Please do not PM me with technical questions – we have Create forums for that.
