Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A small country house, furnished for 4 sims (two of them a couple), with fireplace and two driveways.

1 x double bedroom
2 x single bedroom
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.

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.

Base Game content only. This house will look exactly like on the screenshots.

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: 20.090§ F, 17.317§ U
Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

Hmm you can place a fence on top of another fence? I must try that.

Hi, first of all I have to say that you build the most beautiful houses - small, simple but very nice. And this house is not an exception Second, I also have a favour to ask. Could you please make a tutorial for sloped walls you use in the attics of your houses or otherwise explain how you make them? I built them in TS2 without any problems, but I can't sort it out in TS3.

If you are not sure what I am talking about, here is a pic...

There's no difference between TS2 and TS3 with regards to that. A tutorial already exists ("Bigger Attics", look in my profile); if you have difficulties with it please post in the tutorial thread.

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

I have downloaded all 12 of these sweet little Wee Barnoid houses of yours and I just clicked the 'Thanks' button for the first 11 but seeing as this looks like the last one I thought I would write a proper thank you this time.

These really are the sweetest little houses I've ever seen so thank you very much for sharing them all. They look great in my game and all my sims that have moved into them (of their own accord, I might add) thank you too.
