Another little home I built for a contest but for once I managed to keep the store content down

This affordable little 2-bed, 2 bath ranch is designed to blend into a suburban environment while having facilities you would expect to see in a country ranch. Perfect for animal lovers, it comes ready to accommodate a horse and cat with plenty of outdoors space for running around.




As a working ranch this home comes with an established garden which contains some vegetables but mostly fruit geared toward nectar production; particularly life fruit, flame fruit and all variants of grape. Part of the barn has been converted to a nectar production facility and nectar tasting/storage cellar.



House contains:

• Two Bedrooms
• Two Bathrooms (one is en-suite)
• Sunken Living Room
• Kitchen/Breakfast Room
• Laundry Facilities
• Spacious Front Lawn
• Car Port
• Kitchen Garden
• Fish Pond (no spawners because they cause a weird glitch when you spin the lot...is easier if you do it yourself)
• Horse Paddock and Stable
• Nectar Production Facility
• Nectar tasting and storage cellar



I used the following store items:
Boeuf Gras Dining Chair - Not essential. I only use it in the wine cellar at the tasting table.
IAMS cozy Companion Sofa - FREE

Lot Size: 3x4
Lot Price: F45,190 - U28,844

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.

Aww, thanks for all the positive feedback

Lennon7777777 I'm flattered you'd wanna, lol. I don't mind as long as you give credit like you said

Armi Shhh, it's a secret! lol Nah, I didn't make it for upload, was just a last minute decision to whack it on here instead of scrapping it so I didn't really get the chance/feel the need to spam #create with pics.
