~My first attempt at a Craftsman style home, and I do believe it came out quite nicely. ~

The Valmont is a beautiful Craftsman style home. The home features a stone and wood exterior with a gorgeous wrap-around porch. Inside you are greeted with a two-story foyer and staircase. To the right the formal living room and study, and behind the staircase is a two-story formal dining room. One bedroom with a bath is also at the front of the house. The rear area behind the garage has a large kitchen with breakfast nook and is attached to the family room with fireplace. A secondary staircase is also in the family room for convenience. Upstairs is a gameroom, two secondary bedrooms, a bathroom and the spacious master suite. In the backyard you will find a covered outdoor dining area, kids' play area, and a large pool.

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.
