Starter Cabin--CC free!

Here is a quaint little starter cabin for your Sims. Ideal for the newlyweds or the devoted college student, it provides everything a Sim needs to get along in life, from a computer and telephone to a bookcase and a comfy double bed to the small luxury of a TV, a grill, and a bath/shower combo. It is based on a similar two-cabin home my father looked at back when I was seven, when we moved from Idaho to our current location. The bedroom, I recall, had model planes hanging from the ceiling, hence the model plane in the bedroom here. Enjoy it!

NOTE: I have checked all four EPs I own for compatibility. Since I have a Mcintosh, I can't check it without uninstalling and reinstalling games, and I'm not sure if it will work w/o any of the EPs I have checked. You are welcome to try, and if you find it does work without Uni/NL/OfB/Pets, please let me know. Thank you!

Lot Size: 3x1
Lot Price: 19,655

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Thought you should know - when trying to install this using Q-Xpress I received the warning "Caution: This is not a Sims2 Pack file. Possibly corrupted". Wish I knew why, I like the house. Good luck.

That's weird because it most certainly is a Sims2pack file. Why don't you try again using the default installer? If that doesn't work, tell me, and I'll look into it.

i see great potential in this house to really fit the needs of the particular sim that's in it. I love being able to look at a layout and immediately see the different customizations i would do to it for each of my sims. Thanks for sharing!
