Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

Cali, this is my favourite house of yours. I don't know why, but there's just something about it. It's so warm and comfortable looking. Love it! Thank you.

I agree, I think this is your best one yet! Besides the layout being great it is the colors that got me. The mix of the colors, patterns and textures are perfect! Thanks!

Love this house!!!

btw - how do you do the individual roof slopes in Sims 3? I got entirely used to that cheat and then function in Sims 2.

If you are using awesomemod, you can type 'rsa [#] new' into the cheat console to choose the angle of the next roof pieces you place. So it would be 'rsa 15 new' to add a 15 degree angle roof piece.
If you aren't using awesomemod, there's a tutorial for making different roof angles here in the MTS build tutorials. Here's the link:
