Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
NOTES:

The only CC used in this game is HugeLunatic's Window Shmindow-Counterheight

This house was built with the base game only (version 1.26.89).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With only 16,500 simoleons in their pockets, newly-created sims are destined to live in a starter home with cheap stuff before eventually moving to bigger and better-furnished homes. The cheap stuff causes them to gain negative moodlets like 'uneven cooking,' 'tastes like fridge' or 'cold shower.' They are also forced to sleep on cheap beds--and the slow energy gain is really annoying, sometimes your sim has no choice but to go to work without showering because he/she is already late for work.

But what can a sim do, right? It's not like you can start (without cheats) in a home with expensive furnishings--a newly created sim won't be able to afford that. They just need to bear with it before they can afford better homes, right?

Nope, not anymore.

I present to you The Black Forest: a starter home, minus the annoyances--it is furnished with expensive stuff (shower, fridge, stove and bed) so that your sim can start their life luxuriously. They deserve it.

(Oh, and yes, the name comes from the Black Forest Cake. Yum.)

Lot Size: 1x1
Lot Price: F: 15,119 UF:10,334

Additional Credits:
My friend Rei, for giving me inspiration and for providing me with the most useful tool that I used in making this lot--her computer mouse.

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.

With a name like Black Forest, how could I NOT have this? By the way, I love the way you did the bed. I would have never thought of that! I imagine Sims can still get in it, but I'm thinking it might cause route failure for pets, not sure. Not that that really matters anyway - pets don't NEED to be on the bed. XD

Unfortunately, like you said, pets won't be able to jump onto the bed. They can enjoy sleeping on the couch, though, haha!
