Toscana Piccolo
Google tells me that translates to Small Tuscan, but I know Google can be quite erratic in it's translations. But the words look elegant and exotic so in my twisted reality that name will work! This lot has been months in the making, not this specific style, but the attempt at building a unique and different home on a 10x10 lot. I've had hundreds of failed attempts because they all looked like little cabins or tall modern boxes colored with crayola neon colors.

This house pretty much takes up edge to edge, but it is still plenty roomy inside. Designed for a single Sim or a couple it has one bedroom upstairs with an attached bath, a reading nook in the upstairs hall, a large open living and dining area with the kitchen just through the arch. The outside has a small patio that is ready for a lounge chair or maybe a few plants. Colored in warm earth tones that Google assures me is in the Tuscan style, but again...Google sometimes bends the truth.

I have all EPs/SPs and I've used items from each one. You can install this lot if you don't have the same EPs, the game will just substitute other items for the missing EP items. I recommend you not use this without WA though, as all the windows are from that EP.

Lot Size: 1x1
Lot Price: §29,878 / §20,717

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.

"Piccolo Casolare Toscano"

Toscana piccolo is a wrong translation. Good and nice work! And the colors too, all is perfect, a little jewel

"Toscana Piccolo" means "Tuscany (as a noun), Little Guy". Dragowyn's translation, "Piccolo Casolare Toscano" is a good name cause it means "small tuscan house".

Nice work. For some reason, the tub really caught my eye, and seems quite authentic. Lovely house :-)
