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.

Oh Ben, I didn't see this earlier. This is nice and smaller than your other homes, but in a great way. Nice floorplan and good use of space.

I have one question...what exactly will be effected if one installs this house without having Late Night? Is it simply certain items, textures or something bigger like structure or something? I really love this house but unfortunately the only expansion I don't have is Late Night.

If memory serves, one person did attempt installing one of my houses with only the base game (no EPs at all). The report she gave was that certain objects were replaced with other objects, including some rather strange substitutions (bookshelves in lieu of washing machines).

Most of the objects I used are not from LN, so if you install it, it should be slightly different from the pictures. But otherwise, you should be able to use it.

The coffee machine is the LN version, but you can place the base game version there instead if you like.

Hopefully this helps.
