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.

It's beautiful, Linda, as is all your work. ::hugs::

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

this is a really beautiful house! and i love that there isn't any custom content because I'm so afraid to put new houses in my game since it seems like every time I do they blue lot my neighborhood.

Great house! But I'm having trouble finding a good spot to place it that'll make both the driveway and front steps hit a road.

Where did you build/place it?

Hi lyinglies. I put it at either 1 Sun Song Ave., or 7 Sun Song Ave. It's that street with the pier beach on it. I think I evicted and plowed down that whole street in my game, and put this house and my Victorians there. Have fun!
