Hello All,

Thanks for looking! This would be my very first contribution to the Sims community. Seeing and enjoying the talent on this site over the years has been amazing. I only wish I had more time to play, and contribute more often.

My first submission is this Natural Modern home. This house is best suited for a Single Sim, or a couple with no (live-in) kids. The shell of the house allows for interior customization to fit individual needs. The house is just minimally furnished to show use of space. I built it with the intention that the outside is visible from everywhere, and there are porches and balconies galore. There isn't adequate lighting. A full furnishing with my schedule would have easily taken me another 3 weeks to get this house posted, sorry for that. The house is functional, as it was tested with a single Sim for 48 hours.

The house features Constrain Floor Elevation cheat roofs, which of course now includes a floating phantom roof when viewed from certain angles.

I hope you all enjoy, and I would love to see screenshots of any customizations if you care to share them with me. I only ask that this lot not be resubmitted on any other websites, and this goes for any altered examples as well.

Lot size: 25x30
Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price: 148,186
Unfurnished Lot price: 60,851

Number of bedrooms: 1 Bedroom
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Starter Furnishings
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.

you did well, but why is it only 1 bedroom for such a massive house?

I didn't see you there. Hello. *runs* | Visit my CFF World thread

Hi Pinky,
Thanks for the kind words! Enjoy!

Hi Tom,

Thanks so much for the compliment! I generally don't play with families in the Sims, and enjoy creating empty-nester/bachelor type homes. There's plenty of room on the 1st floor if you care to add a second bedroom. Plus, I suppose my own penchant for open and roomy spaces translates directly to my creations.

Ooh, it's beautiful. I love the interesting roof and wall angles on the exterior, and the pond in the front.
