Hey everyone, I've finally joined the bandwagon! I bought Island Paradise a few days ago, completing my EP collection of all the EP's. I only have high end loft stuff for a stuff pack (and actually town life since I got it for free through some promotion, and I have yet to use it, ha ha) since it's pretty much the only stuff pack with items I like.

This should make some of you happy, as it's cc free, and on a small lot. But still the largest house boat lot, what else could you expect!

Well, let's get on to it! This houseboat has three bedrooms, as I know many simmers play with families . Unlike some houseboats, I left some room in the back for a few outdoor activities. Gotta have a hot tub, am I right!?

I went a little crazy with the kids may not like the floors, but to me they seemed like pebbles or stone, perfect for a sea themed room. I had to, come on LOL.

Lot price:

Furnished: 96,350
Unfurnished: 54,910


Mandatory: island paradise, late night, ITF, high end loft stuff

Mandatory-ish: generations (I used the spiral staircases, though the ladder could be placed instead. Or the firepole if you're feeling adventerous lol. I also used a few things in the kid's room), and university for one window used twice

Optional: seasons, world adventures (just used the outdoor palm), showtime (the plants lining the house)

Lot Size: 17x22
Lot Price: in description

Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

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.
