This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
The Sims 3 Store has a huge amount of content, and some of the most quality items are hidden away in the worlds. Hidden Springs in particular has some unique items, and I've always loved this door - it's a little rustic, a little storybook, a little classy. It can fit in with anything - including my current Adobe project.

However, I always felt the door was weirdly narrow to be a main entrance, so I put it on two tiles, made it a little wider, and here it is: original on the right, mine on the left.

It's fully recolourable with four channels - door, inside and out, and frame, inside and out - and has a custom light so the little window will let the sun shine in. It has the same first preset as the original door, with brass hardware, and I also added a second preset, with black wrought iron hardware.

It can be found in Build / Doors for the same price as the original, §175. The original door or world is not required, this is an entirely standalone object.

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. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. 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.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

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.

While I didn't mind the narrowness of it all that much, I did mind that there wasn't a two-tile option, so thank you!
