KateSterling's MODERN STARTER - Inspired by Architect Jonathan Park's Mumford Pool House NO CC




Nothing but the essentials in this ultra modern starter home by KateSterling.  This home is inspired by architect Jonathan Park's Mumford Pool Home.  There's room to add a pool, but in order to keep it in the starter price range, I didn't add one myself.


I built it for 18 Maywood Lane Sunset Valley.  (It should fit any other 20x30 lot or larger.)


The first level hosts an eat-in kitchen, full bath and a sitting area.  The bedroom is located on the second level.  


This starter home costs about $15,000 furnished and $11,000 unfurnished.


NO CC.  I do not use custom content in my builds.  I did not use any custom patterns either.  Any patterns, building materials, furniture or accessories are from EA's The Sims 3 Store, or the expansion packs: Late Night or Ambitions.  A list of the store items is available on this lot's description page on The Exchange - the first download link below.)  (As always, if you do not own the above EP/SP/Store items, the furniture/accessory will be substituted.)

LA PISCINE HAUS: French Pool House by Kate Sterling NO CC


I built La Piscine Haus for 200 East Northbank Blvd, Champs Les Sims, France.  (It should fit any 30x30 lot or larger).  When placed in this location, it overlooks Champs Les Sims and the Eastern Watch Island. (A teleportation device is included!)  

This elegant French style home is centered around a beautiful indoor pool.  Other amenities include: 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, grand entrance, den, study, eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, entertainment area in basement with bar chess room & rec room, art studio, exercise room & martial arts room.  

Costs about $292,000 furnished and $161,000 unfurnished.  

NO CC.  I do not use custom content on my builds.  However, I do have a few patterns made with EA's Create-A-Pattern tool in my toolbox.  I don't think I used any on this house, but I did want to mention it, just in case.  The patterns should transfer well, regardless. 

I did use the World Adventures expansion pack and the High-End Loft stuff pack.  I've also used some EA store items (a list is on my page on The Exchange - the first download link below.)  (As always, if you do not own the above EP/SP/Store items, the furniture/accessory will be substituted.)

PISCES PALACE: A Modern Mansion by KateSterling NO CC 4br 7ba 60x60




I've decided to rework some of my previous builds.  I'm making a few minor changes, but mostly just taking new screenshots so that I can properly upload them with pics that show off each creation.

So, I've decided to start with one of my favorites.  I give you... PISCES PALACE.  I built this huge modern luxury home for my spoiled pisces sim!  

I built Pisces Palace for 302 Silvertone Way, Bridgeport (60x60 lot with elevation).  

With my pisces sim in mind, I included many water/fish features throughout.  Some (but not all) are pictured below.

Also included: 4 bedrooms, 7 baths, living room, music room, formal dining room, eat-in kitchen, library, nectary, hobby/photography studios, rec room, martial arts room, gym, laundry room & 3-car garage.  

This house costs about $630,000 furnished and $309,000 unfurnished.

NO CC!  I do not use custom content on my builds.  However, I do have a few patterns made with EA's Create-A-Pattern tool in my toolbox.  I don't think I used any on this home, but I did want to mention that, just in case.    The patterns should transfer well, regardless.  

I did use the expansion packs: Late Night, Ambitions, World Adventures, the stuff packs: Fast Lane and High-End Loft.  I've also used some EA store items (a list is on my page on The Exchange - the first download link below).  (As always, if you do not own the above EP/SP/Store Items, the furniture/accessory will be substituted.)

Club KAMA Simtra by KateSterling NO CC 20x30 lot


I built CLUB KAMA SIMTRA in honor of the Kama Simtra mod by NRaas.  

This night club has everything your sim needs to complete the "Experienced Challenge" (Elevators, Hot Tub, Tent, Sarcophagus, Actors Trailer and Time Machine).

The main level features: rear privacy parking and entrance.

The upper level features: a swanky bar and plenty of counters for exotic dancing!

The lower level features: four themed private "Kama Simtra rooms" (Hollywood Glam Room, Egyptian Adventure Room, Asian Tranquility Room and the Futuristic Time Travel Room).

NO CC!  I did not use any custom content in Club Kama Simtra.  I have used some items from the expansion packs: Late Night, World Adventures and Ambitions.  I have also used some EA The Sims 3 Store items.  (If you do not own the EP's/Store items, the items will be substituted.)

Twallan's (NRaas) mods are recommended but NOT required.  You can find his most recent version of The Woohooer and The Woohooer Kama Simtra HERE.
