I got bored pretty quickly with normal houses on the ground, so I decided to make a tree house!

It has lots of windows and balconies, and of course, lots of trees.

I'm especially fond of the cool spiral staircase:

Happy Simming!


1 BR, 1 BA
20x30 Lot
§52,271 furnished
§42,097 unfurnished

Built with Game Version 1.19.44/2.13.6/4.6.6/6.2.4
I didn't use any of the WA, AMB, or LN features, so it should be fine if you only have the base game.

Vaccari Living Room Set by Simcredible
Omega Living Room chair and lamp, also by Simcredible
Alder Stairs by Flabaliki
International Counterheight Windows by HugeLunatic

Lot Size: 3x2

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 bet youd have to have a pretty big lot if this is intended to be a children's tree house, not the main house. its pretty amazing looking though :D
