The Cozy Compact features a modern, Mid-century inspired architecture consisting of wood as the main design element, along with some metal, glass, and masonry. The ground floor has an open plan design for the kitchen, dining , living, and study areas. There is also a small patio for sims to enjoy a nice view of the town, or just a space for outdoor dining. It houses two bedrooms for up to three sims to live in.

This house is built with mostly base game items and custom content, though i used some items from expansion and stuff packs. World Adventures may be optional, since I used only the lavender plant from there. Under the spoiler tag is every custom content that I used (and not included) as shown:

And also, I recommended these default replacements as they make the lot look better as seen in screenshots:
Altered Plants by HystericalParoxysm
Ceiling default replacement by circuswolfsims

This lot is saved as a .package file, just put it in the Library folder to install. (Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Library)

Lot Size: 20x20
Lot Price (furnished): 80,130
Lot Price (unfurnished): 46,413

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.
