I made this house last year, and I just decided it was good enough for uploading! The house is inspired part by modernist houses from the 1930's, part by contemporary modern houses.

The sleek outside is made up of different sized rectangulars, covered in white concrete. The windows are black, adding some contrast to the white facade. The windows are placed in order for there to be both plenty of light and privacy from the curb-facing side of the house.
The house has one back-yard patio and an overbuilt patio upstairs. Facing the street is an overbuilt carport for one car.

The inside is minimalistic and simple. The main walls are white, with some accent walls adding some color. One might say the interior is a bit sterile or cold, but that is a matter of taste.
Main floor consists of a kitchen, dining area, living room and two bathrooms.
The second floor houses the two bedrooms, one half bath and a sofa group facing the upstairs patio.

Note this: The house does have some content from Late Night, but the house will work fine without it. There are only a few LN furnishings, nothing crucial to the design of the house.

This house can be found in my world Boulder Canyon:

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 house reminds me of one my great aunt had in San Leandro (San Francisco's East Bay). I really, really like it!
