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

The Sandwich came from the idea of a house both surrounded by and floating above water. It's name comes from the fact that the house is "sandwiched" between two layers.

The house follows a strickly modern theme, using cyan and white as it's main colours, and uses rainbow colours to accentuate the dining areas. It features a long open layout, with lounge, dining, kitchen and study. The house is made for a couple, so includes one double bed and a single bathroom. From the bedroom, the house has a long catwalk to a small outside dining area with a bar, and then features stairs down to the pool. It also features a long driveway with space to park one car.

One of the main features of the house is that it is surrounded by water, and the house has been build one square out from it's foundations, giving it the effect that is is floating above the water and meaning that sims can swim all the way around the house. The house also has windows all the way around it, allowing lots of light in and meaning that your sims can enjoy the beautiful view from any direction.

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.
