This house also requires the University Life EP

Hi everyone!

First of all, This small and cozy cabin is a little inspired by this house .
I found it awhile ago and I thought it looked really cute so i wanted to build a similar one for the sims, I hope you'll like it .

Sunflower cabin is a two story starter home with basement, It's built on a 10*10 lot and there's room for a driveway to the right side of the house.
The backyard features a BBQ with dining area. It may be small, but it's quite cozy and there's room to squeeze in a chess table or perhaps a small garden for sims who enjoy the outdoors .
This might be the smallest house I've ever uploaded, the house itself is only 5*5 but two sims can live here comfortably .

Lot price furnished:16 402
Lot price Unfurnished:12 332

First floor features:
Kitchen with dining area.
Living area with a couch and a tv.

Second floor features:
A hobby room with a desk, bookcase and an easel.
One full bathroom.

Basement features:
One bedroom with a double bed and a dresser.
A half bathroom.


Thanks for looking, commnets or just a thanks is always appreciated .

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.

I think yours actually looks nicer than the original. Just a question though - are the counters in the kitchen actually usable? It doesn't look like there's any actual working counter space for a Sim to prepare food on. (I don't think a Sim can prepare food on a corner counter, can they?)

Thanks Amber!
Yes everything is usable. The house has been playtested with two sims and they prepare food on the corner counter without any problems. I just moved in a sim to double check and he's putting the waffles, prepared on the courner counter, in the oven

Wow, this is amazing. I agree with Amber, yours is much better than the original. You put a lot of work into detail and the result is a true masterpiece. It reminds me of those old watch towers along the Limes Germanicus which was built by the Romans. Great work! Love it!

I love this house. I doesn't feel nearly as small as a 5x5. Great choice of textures throughout. It really gives the place a rustic feel. I'm excited to play this house.

I'll probably put this on a bigger lot and then CFE the heck out of it.

Human beings are a very irrational species. Some of them are even afraid of pickles.

I absolutely luv this cute little house...I really can't wait to use it. I'll probably use it for my next starter sim. I'm always looking for cute starter houses. The ea ones are ok, but it gets boring using them over...and over...and over again. So, thank you for sharing this and especially thank you for keeping it cc free.
