Lot - M/S Hans the Houseboat

"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea." – Karen Blixen
The ocean is a tough master, but to live on a boat has it advantages. First of all you are always close to the sea, and what could be better than that?

M/S Hans is a typical Norwegian "Sk√łyte", a small but practical one-masted boat, much preferred as fishing boat. It has no luxury, you might even think it's a bit small and inconvenient as living quarter. But the truth is it's a perfect place for young sims who wants to make some money. It is low cost and high on outdoor life, a perfect starter home!
M/S Hans is the third houseboat I made. See all houseboats here.

General information
There are some key elements on this lot that are not from the basic game. Items from The Store, Expansion packs (EP) and Stuff packs (SP) that you don't have will be replaced with items from the base game. If you want the house to show up in your game exactly as in the pictures, you will need the listed store items and the expansions/stuff packages and the listed items from the Store. I had the following EP's and SP's in my game when this lot was made: World Adventure, Ambition, Late Night, Generations, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, University Life, Island Paradise, High-End Loft, Fast Lane, Outdoor Living, Town Life, Master suite, Katy Perry's Sweet Treats, Diesel, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff.

Info about this upload
CC items: Window top and bottom by Einfach Simlich, Oil drum by Creasims, Barrel by ATS and sink by Lisen801 at MTS. (None of the items are included in the sims3pack file)
Store items: None
EPs/SPs:  Island Paradise is essential to this lot, since houseboats came with that EP. Other EP/SP items used are not essential, in the sense that the lot would still function if automatically replaced, but the lot might not look exactly as in the pictures.

World used: Aurora skies (EA), but you can place it in any world you like of course, as long as it has a port.

M/S Hans

Happy Simming!
