My first The Sims 3 house

In April 2013, after several dozens hours of extensive studying of Sims behavior on 3 experimental houses made by me, using two families of 2 and 8 sims, plus the pre-made ones, I made my first (final) house in The Sims 3.

I hate The Sims 3 lot sizes, for being too big. Look at this, I used the smallest standard-sized lot available in game (20×30) to build an oversized house with 258 square meters for 6 Sims (with possibility to add 2 more beds), 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, carpark for 2 cars, pool, BBQ, etc. I say oversized because 6 Sims normally need 200 squares.

Error: the two doorways near staircase may appear half-walled, I placed using the cheat “moveobjects on”, because of The Sims 3 limitations, this was working well in The Sims 2.

 
 
 

Lot size: 20×30.
Lot price: about $170.000.
House size: 16×12.
Floor area: 258 squares + 35 squares of terraces + 8 squares of void.
Expansions required: none, The Sims 3 base game only.

  1. It’s interesting to hear about your experience with the game limitations and how you overcame them to design the house the way you wanted. By the way, have you ever tried using a time card calculator to keep track of the hours you spend on projects like this?
