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 the back patio is just lovely. I do not play with larger families (if I play at all) but I do like the floorplan.

Thanks, all of you.

MariTom, the stuff pack items are all decor and can be substituted.give it a whirl!
Yogi-Tea, I'm glad you like it too, it appealed to me as well. I think it suits a large family without being too sprawling, a problem when time ticks along so darned fast in game!
KD *HUGS* Thanks hon
Daniandan, you're very welcome. I hope you enjoy it.

Hi guys and gals,

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to abandon you. If I remember correctly there already are parking space in the garage? I'll look at it later, after work.
I don't know why it's not showing up in some games, I can't think what could cause this problem. I'll see if I can find someone to consult with about that.
Thanks for your patience.

I was also unable to install this house. I purchased all the items listed on the page and I have every expansion and most all of the added content from the sims3 site. I tried so many times just to get this house and it just would not go into my game.
