Seeing from my windows ancient roofs with their fancy chimneys looking like little houses gave me the idea to build this lot.

Of course, what I built is not exactly chimneys, though I still hope this lot will make you smile

It is built on 2 floors :

The ground floor is in the roofs and contains a laundry and a study with bookshelf. On the outside I made a terrace with a chessboard.

The first floor features 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a kitchen and a living room. Again I made a terrace with a BBQ area.

Lot price : Furnished 104,781; unfurnished : 67,695

A grateful thanks to my friend Triciamanly who helped me a lot in doing this lot with her feedback, ideas and support.

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: 104,781

Number of bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None

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 absolutely love attics and lofts as apartments, and rooftops, there's some unique feel to them. This is wonderful, great work and very creative!

It's a good feeling to be challenged and come through, isn't it? Your lot looks awesome! It also arouses the curiosity, so I think you will get a record number of views! I love it!

This is very creative! I used to think about chilling ontop of a rooftop, drinking cocoa or something under a parasol. ^-^
