Puggle Farm - a cozy farm home

Requires the World Adventures EP
Uses 1 free item from the Sims Store (see details below)

Inspired by a new (local) Aussie tv show called "Gourmet Farmer", Puggle Farm is a small-sized, 3 storey farm house with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, storage shed/nectar making facility, fully stocked fishing creek, combined kitchen and dining, cozy lounge area with fireplace, fruit orchard, vegetable plot, bbq and bench and cottage garden landscaping. Also has skill building painting easel and chess board. There is room at the front for a car space. All of this for under 80,000 simoleons! :D

This lot is ideal for any green thumb, vegetarian, angler type Sims couple or family in your neighbourhood.

Important!: the arched bridge functions when you direct your Sims to use it, otherwise they tend to run around the creek to reach the front door. After fair bit of play testing, I am not sure what causes this confusion in the Sims' path choice other than the entire building itself having been built on an angle.

1 free item from the Sims Store has been used to help decorate this lot:

Thanksgiving Wall Shelf

Furnished cost: 77,784
Unfurnished cost: 44,807

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.

Thank you for the kind words Chryseis and ashandemsmomi

Psst, this building doesn't look like the real Puggle Farm at all, but if the Gourmet Farmer was a sim, I am sure he wouldn't mind it lol
