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 place is so amazing.

A couple of gameplay notes for anyone trying to use this lot: The massage table has to be moved in order to be used. Despite the footprint, I'm not sure it can be placed against a wall on any side. I had to turn it and place it in the exact center of the room to make it usable.

I also had trouble with sims grabbing food from one buffet and carrying it up/downstairs to eat, so I ended up moving the breakfast buffet tables up to the formal dining room and replacing them with some counters with coffee machines. That might be because of a mod I vaguely remember having that directs sims to try to eat close together -- but in an unaltered game, sims are known for carrying their food across the lot anyway.
