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.

Cute little house ! Hope it'll work with my 1.29 game, since I got so many issues with my CC stuff...

thanks for the comments!

@TammyLin: i haven't patched in ages, so this was built with 1.26. i tossed it to a few friends with 1.29 and it worked for them; hopefully it works for you too.

I don't see a reason why it shouldn't work with 1.29 - you'll rather have problems with lots that were built with 1.29 if your game is unpatched (e.g. 1.26).

This is a lovely little lot. I'm impressed how much furniture you were able to fit in.

Love the placing of the furniture. So interesting. I'm trying to see if my bf/gf couple can sleep in here- they were having some arguments over the computer (they both wanted it) This house is great!

I love it how every time I look for a cute house, I always end up using this one. And hey, time to download it again for maybe the 15th time since January 2012! Thank you for making it.
