Sims in search of a stylish home with ample room to live need look no further, the Svelte Swede is here! With two floors, two full baths, and four bedrooms (two of which are staged as an art studio and family room), this mid-century Scandinavian gem has something to offer for both single sims and couples who want space for entertaining, or a big family in need of some room to grow.

EPs required

Seasons and Generations are the most critical EPs. Supernatural is required for the rocker in the living room and some minor decor/lighting items. Pets is only required for minor decor/lighting items.

Credits and whatnot
This lot would be nothing without heaven, who used her immense patience and knowledge of CFE to guide me through building the structure of this lot (and provided lots of feedback on the interior to boot!)

The original house plans (which I modified slightly) are from Vintage Home Plans on Tumblr.

Also note that due to the CFE required for the stairs, there are some minor optical issues which are unfortunately unavoidable around that area. The hallway wall "tears" slightly at the landing, and the wall in the office/family room sometimes doesn't match the colour of the other walls (due to EA's ham-handed lighting system). Lot has been play-tested for routability and no issues found.

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.

@ImSteephill - you can still install the lot without all of the listed EPs. Any EP content you don't have will be replaced with a BG object. In the case of SN, there are not many objects used from that pack, as stated in the description, so this should be fine. You'll have to replace the rocker in the living room with something else suitable, but otherwise I can't think of any major pieces that are from SN.

The meadows are in bloom:
who has ever seen such insolence?
