Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Sims 3 starter house, this time with a more modern style.

So… one adult Sim gets $16,000 and 2 young adult Sims get $18,000 to start life.

This home has two nice sized bedrooms and two baths. It comes with basic starter furnishings, a smoke detector, TV, computer, bookcase, lighting, appliances and sleeping and seating for two to four Sims.

There is plenty of room for a drive and pool once you’re Sim gets on their feet! Some pretty outdoor potted plants would look nice in the back by the living room windows!

I LOVE the create-a-style tool! It is so nice to have matching anything and everything that you want. The nice thing is that if you not like the color of something you can use the color palette tool and change it the way you like and it does not cost your Sims a dime (dollar)! So don’t buy and replace - it costs $$$’s!

I’m sure that anyone that has played Sims 3 has figured out that you can click on the door and tell it to set it as the front door but I had to add this just in case someone had not noticed! I hated that we didn’t have that option in Sims 2!

My v/g card has apparently hit its limit, so ignore the horrible pics, if you have a decent card it will look better in your game!

Enjoy!

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.

I didn't know about clicking on the door. Thanks for the information. Also did you know that if a neat sim clicks on the floor the get the option to clean house. I love the new game.

Nice house
I have no creativity when it comes to building houses... Which is kinda funny
If i were to make something such as a map for a First person shooter it would look really creative but when it comes to making houses in the Sims 3 they come out looking ugly or just a big blob of square.

Really nice! I like small houses. I also like a red/black/white color scheme. I don't usually download others' houses. I love to build my own. However, I do really like this one. Great job and thanks for sharing.

I love this house ^_^ Thank you for the house, I've played it a lot a while back when it was first uploaded and it have since, at lest for my game has had a twin lot added that became very different from the original plan. This house is very fun to play with and it also has a great floor plan that can easily be edited to add more rooms.

oh great! when can i move in?
i also did not know about the front door setting option, it's great! i used the bamboozle doors in sims 2 - it achieved the same effect.
