In the Hokkaido Residence, every window could be a Bob Ross painting. This "asian-contemporary-fusion"-styled house is a platform for the contemplation of nature, at the same time that it becomes a key-part of the landscape as well. It's a sanctuary of peace and tranquility, an oasis from the vile obscenity of the human condition. Fully decorated, 2 cars, 3 bedrooms, library and much more.

NOTE: this lot will fit in any 64x64 lot, though I must say it would fit better on the Redwood Cove lot in Sunset Valley, since I built the house using that lot's original landscape.

Lot size: 64x64

Unfurnished: 79,655

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 awesome! I'm with Brett. Where did you place the home? It would be a good one for Bridgeport.
