This whole house started as an experiment in the summer of 2012 to see if it was possible to make a house with a pagoda-style gamble roof that didn't have corners which rose up exposing the floor/attic underneath. With the help of CFE I was reasonably successful. Since then this house has sat in my game longing to be finished.

Not being very knowledgeable on historic Asian architecture, I took a few liberties with the styling of the home. My main inspiration for which was the architecture of the Tang Dynasty, although it doesn't really show it because I went for dark wood rather than stone on the exterior.

I've furnished the interior quite simply although you'll find everything a large family needs for a vacation in Shang Simla, which was the original intention when I decided to finish the rest of the house below the roofs.

Lot Info:
The house was built on a 30 by 40 lot costing 228,392 Simoleons Furnished and 138,754 Simoleons unfurnished.

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.
