Lot Description
'Bite of Tuscany' is a one bedroom, one bathroom starter home with a warm and inviting exterior, a back patio with ingenious shade structure and a playable floorplan. The home took about 10 hours to complete, including upload time, and was originally conceived as a sort of sequel to my Pinot Starter Home, where the concept was that I wanted a starter home that looked like a regular home, as in, had nice furnishing, playable floor plan and decent landscaping. I would like to think that once again, I have achieved this goal, but with slightly more flare than my previous attempt.

Technical Info
Architectural Type: Tuscan/Mediterranean
Items in This Home: Fridge, Sink, Stove, Sofa, TV, Esil, Dining Table, 4 Chairs, Bookcase, Dresser, Bathtub, Sink, Toilet, +multiple deco items like paintings and plants
Location: Built in EA world 'Sunset Valley', but can be placed on any 15x20 lot. USE IN-GAME WORLD EDITOR TO PLACE A 15X20 LOT.
Lot Size: 15x20
Price: Furn15,272 Unfurn10,230
Playtested: Yes, issues fixed include fridge being unusable, not being able to use the bin. Tested by iroxatlife
REQUIRED Custom Content: Unfortunately, the CC was nessecary to achieve the look I had in my head for this lot, though if EA made complete sets of windows, there would only need to be one item on this list. :P

Rose (irxatlife): for playtesting this lot, and giving me feedback within about 5 minutes of me giving her the lot Also, for just being a friend, Lub you. haha.
Qbuilderz: Congrats on the feature mate, but mostly, for the name and for your opinion on the pictures.

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.
