Originally this lot was meant to be a starter home for a big family. Unfortunately it turned out to be too expensive for a starter but it is still a nice lot for a family. It is spacious and gives the children plenty of room to play with each other.

Please note that the house has no fire alarm and no burglar alarm. The furniture and electronic equipment is also rather basic. Your sims will need to earn some money first to improve these things, however, the vegetable garden in the backyard may help them to increase family funds faster if they sell the produce to the next grocery store.

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.
