Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Built in the style of my WIP world, Greymont Bay, The Wheaton is a small but cozy 2 bedroom house with an open concept living space and room enough for man's best friend. Out back, a small vegetable patch will provide plenty of fresh sustenance. Contrary to the rest of the house's design, the second bedroom is decorated in vibrant, eclectic colors, perfect for an artist! The Wheaton is my attempt at MTS's speedbuild foundation challenge that was hosted on the site's Discord channel. Though I didn't finish in the allotted 90 minutes, I was too happy with what I had to toss it so I decided to finish and upload.

Custom Content Required, Not Included:
Storied Tale Stairs by TS3 Store
Warm Winters Window Addons by missyzim (specifically the 2-tile and the short)

Mods Used, Not Required:
Remove Stencils/Overlays by velocitygrass
Decorator's Best Friend by misukisu

Lot Specifics:
  • Lot Size: 25x25
  • Furnished Price: §55,351
  • Unfurnished Price: §36,107

Lot Notes:
  • While every EP is listed as required, there are some EPs that I did not use extensively. A light is used each from Seasons and Showtime. The porch lights and shower come from Island Paradise. The bedside table in the second bedroom is from MSS.
  • The lot has been playtested to ensure all objects can be used, including the pet toybox under the foyer table and the dog bed under the stairs. The chair under the stairs can be used by humans, but for some reason the cat I tested with had problems sitting in it or hiding under it (though she could scratch it). However, there should be plenty of other chairs for sitting so I figured it was fine as is.
  • This lot is a library file. To install it, extract it from the archive and place it in your Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Library folder.

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 is really beautiful Heaven, thanks for sharing it! I had my eye on it since I saw it on Tumblr. I've just finished making over Barnacle Bay, and I think it will look perfect on a cliff top lot.

Hello Heaven, I love your creations...but...I tried to download Decorator's Best Friend by Misukisu and Malwarebytes prevents me to do because of a Trojan Horse. Any idea why?
