Some people requested that I upload some of the houses I have built for my own game (but that I didn’t include with the world). Here are a few that I have to share with you. Please ensure you read all information below.
These houses require all EP’s up to Late Night. I also have the Fast Lane Stuff and Outdoor Living stuff packs. The CC I have used in all these houses are my own CC, EA Store items from these sets – Regal Living, Hewnsman, Hacienda, Bahaus, Provence, the Earth Day plant set, Bayside (and the laundry), Ultra Lounge, 50s laundry, the Club Vaindenberger set, and of course the *amazing* curtains from Indigo.
Lots not installing via the launcher?
It has come to my attention that these lots aren’t installing properly in peoples games. I’m not sure why this is, but it seems it’s a known problem, and as such there may be a workaround for it. You can find the workaround for installing these lots here. Because there are a couple of things included in the sims3pack, you can single out the actual lot file to put in your library folder by looking for the following files:
Mid Century Masterpiece lot file: 0×72b4dc17e9caf0a0436dddaca168785.package
Mid Century Butterfly lot file: 0×1499c17f7073729742d931d9b35e7631.package
Mid Century Legacy lot file: 0xaba1d8428a9d018e4b6e8f4062e3d285.package
Compact Modern lot file: 0×3e82fd401f3f05b84eb5811d2268a74.package
Sheltered Modern lot file: 0×4d15cdb422b8b43b6e4cf4569ff1c.package
Mid Century Masterpiece
It comes with 2 bedrooms (1 master with ensuite) plus a study/office (could even be a nursery!), a large open plan living & dining area, kitchen diner, a games/workshop area, a small pool, and lovely landscaped garden with lower level bbq area and upper terraced patio off the master bedroom (which has a super sweet hottub as well!). Note when you place this lot, the colour of the terrain on one of the corners defaults to ugly EA rock terrain. I disguised this by going to Edit World in Edit town mode, and chucked in some shrubs and rocks to mask that part. Sorry about that! looks fine if you mask it though :)
My own cc is too numerous to list, because well, I’ve pretty much used all of it. Almost none of it is included in the lot file, however. What is included is: A couple of patterns (wood grain that you can remove if you have Queenstown), the panelled walls you see inside & out, the kitchen counters & cabinets (you can also remove these if you already have my kitchen), and some rafters that I created. I apologise in advance that these rafters do not fade in and out, this may be annoying to you, if so, just remove ‘em, obviously! I also used items from the Outdoor Living Stuff Pack to create the lovely patio/bbq area in the garden, so it’ll probably look pretty naff if you don’t have that. You can always fix it up with your own stuff though!

Mid Century Butterfly
This cute little hill top butterfly style house sports 3 bedrooms plus a nursery, an open plan living, dining & kitchen area, separate laundry, 2 bathrooms, and views to.die.for. Once again I’m not going to list all my CC, and feel free to open the file in CUSTARD to delete the kitchen, patterns & wallpapers that are in the file. You’ll need this pattern (a vertical version of my wood siding) if you want it to show up properly :)

Mid Century Legacy House
This house was originally situated in Redcliffs, but is now in Queenstown! It was purpose built for a large legacy family I was playing who were obviously very wealthy! Because it has been played in, you have the luxury of enjoying the fruits of their labour right from the start. This includes some painted canvases, a perfect grape & fruit garden, expensive sculpted sculptures, and thats not to mention the massive flippin house! It has 5+ bedrooms PLUS a nursery, PLUS a separate spare room that was used for the butler but is now empty. One of the bedrooms and bathrooms is separate from the main house – I used this for the grandparents so they could get some privacy from the annoying kids. There is a pool, a fancy schmancy pool house, a meditation and martial arts area (complete with cuties panda topiary!) a pond, a mature perfect garden with trees & grapes, and oodles of land for chilluns to play on. This has been a fantastic house for my legacy family, they love it! its obviously enormous, but the main area you’ll be playing is pretty central, the bedrooms are on the edges of the house so out of the way. Ooh almost forgot, there’s a cellar downstairs with some pretty nice nectar in the racks I think!
There’s a kitchen cabinet that didn’t attach to the lot file, so I’ve included it in the rar. Otherwise its me and EA store objects, plus the wonderful Indigo curtain I keep rabbiting on about. Oh I just noticed that I used a bookshelf that was a bonus back from last year, I’m not exactly sure how you go about getting that, but it’s called “Book Cliff by Libronica” if you want to search for it :)

Sheltered Modern House
This was the house my legacy family started in. It features a large open plan living area, with a big kitchen, a couple of decent sized bedrooms plus a study which COULD be a nursery. As the family progressed I converted to the garage into a fabulous extra bedroom, love it. There’s a lovely shapely pool in the back yard, with a big open patio for taking in the views. There is also some room for a vege garden out the back :) I can’t remember if I ever shared the perforated brick pattern you see on the front wall here, so here it is.
