I'm playing the game again after a thousand years, and I figured the best thing for me to build would be another damn stilt home- just because they're so cute.

The paint's a little weatherbeaten, and the furniture's a bit cheap, but it's the perfect lot for a couple of stinky beach hippies. Who says you can't stack five rugs on top of each other? Space is a bit tight, but everything is accessible by even the dimmest of sims. It's got one bedroom, one bathroom and a wraparound covered porch with folding chairs littered everywhere. There's room to fit a parking space or a bike rack underneath the house- just watch out for floods!

As you might have guessed, the lot fits perfectly in Recurve Strand in Sunset Valley, but it would fit on any 4x3 lot.

CC Not Included: The Simple Column (Full Wall Height) by Funbruk here at MTS. I tried to abstain from using any sort of cc, however, you will need this if you want it to look exactly like the picture.
Lot Size: 4x3
Lot Price: §27,543
Lot Price Unfurnished: §20,373

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.

This is a brilliant creation. I've turned this into my own little beach house. In my humble opinion mine is good.
