Finnley Family Cottage is a tiny little house for a family of max. 4 sims.

- Livingroom with fireplace
- Kitchen with open view to livingroom
- A bedroom master bedroom with a crib
- A single bedroom
- A bathroom
- Laundry room
- Small study

- Bike stands
- Table to eat at the back side patio
- Place to hang the laundry
- Beautiful flowers

The lot has been playtested for routing with 4 sims at once, 3 adults and one toddler. Almost everything is CASTed, and the lot is fully decorated


28199 Furnished
17126 Unfurnished

No CC has been used, but I suggest you get this mod, so that the curtains stay where they are supposed to:
Curtain Height Adjustment by Granthes

Game requirements:
You will need Base game, WA and Ambitions installed with patch 6.1.11 or higher

About lot placement
I did some testing on moving the lot around and from place to place. Depending on the rotation of the lot, the trash bin and mailbox might not stay always put where I have placed them, but you can move them back to their places based on the pics.

Additional Credits:
Granthes for the curtain mod

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.

OMG! I absolutely love this quaint little cottage. I especially like the way you have made the kitchen units into an open divider to the living area! Well done!

First,you managed to make a very functional house on a very small surface. And I´m not talking about the lotsize, I´m talking about the indoor area. Everything is accessable (spelling?) and logical, nice work! Guess it took some trial and error, no?

Second, the wallcoverings outdoors are super! Nice colours and a good blend between stone, wood and others. Well, actually the best blend I´ve seen so far.

A really inspirational house! Good work!

Thanks you all

Sierra, yes, I had to keep sims in the house while building, or well, placing furniture, so that I could get the best results on routing in such a small space
The fact that the bathroom works actually amazed me xD
