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.

This is an absolutely amazing house, I loved the Mediterranean Villa you did too <3
I'm curious about this one in particular and how you landscaped the underneath with the foundations/walls (Not sure which they are) and how you got it to look like the house is being held up, so to say, by the blocks underneath. Have tried playing around with CFE and MOO tonight but just cannot seem to get it right. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks.

Thank you so much for enjoying my houses!

All you need to do is to lower the terrain by using the stairs, you may lower 1/2 or 3/4 stairs height (just up to you), then place the columns to get the grids, then put the floor tiles on top of the grids and you can build on it. Hope this helps! :P

Well up until now I have been raising the terrain to where I want it, using the foundation tool from the highest point of the raised terrain and dragging it across then just deleting what I don't need, it's working relatively well, although I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I just can't seem to get it right.
"All you need to do is to lower the terrain by using the stairs, you may lower 1/2 or 3/4 stairs height (just up to you)" Am I right in thinking you used stairs to lower the terrain to where you wanted it instead of using the terrain tools?
I'm so sorry for all the questions, have been trying to perfect this since last night and it's driving me crazy lol

You can use your way with the foundation and delete what you don't need.
Using stairs to lower the terrain is better than using the terrain tool beacuse it's more easy for you to place the stairs after you've finished the house. That's just my way, you can do whatever you think right for you.
