Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This time my goal was to built small, inexpensive (but still nice looking) house for family 2+1. The price is under 30 000, but house still contains a lot of things: TV, fire alarm, anti-theft alarm, grill, easel, driveway and other.
I hope you will like it.

Only free Store content used (see below)!

Lot size: 20x30
Unfurnished: $19 385

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.

So simple, yet so genius! Perfect colour combination, and nice presentation. Unsure about the roof colour, but it's merely a detail. Over all, love the thematics of your houses. Great work!

Thanking you, lovely house, I like the colours. I put it on a larger plot and it makes a lovely farm/horse ranch house. Thanks again.

After searching and searching for a perfect house for my single horse lover sim I finally found one! The new houses for the pets expansion that are out now are all so huge. I'd like to second this post b/c I put this house on a 50x50 lot thinking it would look awful but it still looks great with plenty of room for a horse or two to graze and gallop around. I just extended the terrain paint walkway at the front of the house and voila!
