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.

I went searching for some of the custom content you listed and couldn't find it. Is any of it from Donated only collections and/or sets?

Yes; I usually don't include CC with my lots. Something that works in my game may not work for someone else ( ie CTD, borked neighborhoods etc).

Are you talking about the cornice from Awesims? I added it to the RAR; It's mixed in with a bunch of other CC in a download for the required CC for the custom world, and isn't anywhere individually on the site for some reason.

Where did you place this lot in your game? Wherever I place it, the landscape is somewhat underground.

I agree with chris, wherever i place it the ground covers my house like a bat cave.
