Ol Jed was the Town's Handyman for years, he was also a self proclaimed inventor. Many of his works are still lying around the house one place or another. The Town Council feeling they owed Jed some respect, sent a crew to his house to help clean it up in order for it to be sold. However, the crew only lasted a few days, complaining that Ol Jed was still around haunting the place. Neighbors had made several complaints about the hammering and banging noises late at night. So, as it stands, the house and yard are rundown, paint peeling off the walls, floor boards are missing, weeds grow everywhere, and scrap and junkpiles are strewn about.

If you're willing to clean it up and restore it to the beauty it once was, the City has decided they will drastically reduce the cost of the property.

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.

Excellent lot, Werismyki! You've captured the swampy, eery atmosphere well in Ol Jed's house......I don't know if you've heard that awesome Tom Waits song: "What's he building in there........" but this lot hits that mark for me lol Great job!!
