This is the first entry, The Border Hoose. Set in the Scottish Highlands, bordering a wood, is a renovated 2 story wee croft. As a cc free version this differs from my original entry. Please Visit if you wish to see my entry for the competition and how I decorated and play this lot.

In this cc free version I have had to alter wall paints etc but the most notable difference will be the staircase.

Minimal furniture is used so you sims can decorate as easily as possible. Please enjoy!!

P.S. I highly recommended checking out the competition entries, and if your wanting some extra fun, downloading the foundations for your own lot amusement!

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 139,649

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.
