Small 2 story house on 10x10 lot with a garden and patio. Designed for those with just 1 sim they want to play for awhile or just for starting out. If you intend to keep it for awhile, replacing the basic/starter furnishings will enhance the sims mood.

If you decide you dont want the garden, simply remove it and put in a workbench and shed, or carport, add your favorite skill building items, etc.

There is NO custom content used, however it does require Ambitions since the house is too small for stairs, I used The Speedy Pole.

1st Floor: Fridge, counter, stove, sink, loveseat, and tv.
2nd Floor Bedroom: single bed, dresser, desk with pc, bookshelf
2nd Floor Bathroom: sink, toilet, shower
Patio: table and 2 chairs, cheap grill, portable stereo
Garden: includes life fruit, tomato, lettuce, grapes, garlic, watermelon, bellpeppers, and onions

Lot Size: 10x10
House Size: 4x6
Garden: 4x4
Patio Area: 5x6
Furnished: 14,083
Unfurnished: 9,941

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
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.

Aww... what a cute little house - with such a big garden. I'd never thought this was possible. The idea with the speedy pole is very clever - another thing I'd never thought of using for a residential home. Great work!

If we download this without Ambitions, will it simply appear without the fire pole or will it not work at all?
I really love this house, and I'd love to use it for one of my Riverview sim's children, but if that doesn't work then I guess I can't...
