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.

Brilliantly laid out beautifully furnished. So much more realistic than some houses I've seen for the sims 3. Thank you!

The outside is a little plain for my tastes (something looks off near that little window area by the garage), but you did such an amazing job decorating the inside that I just have to download it. This house will make my middle-class families very happy. Thanks for your hard work!

Truth be told i am HOPELESS at landscaping! lol...but I do normally add more to the outside. I wanted this garden to be plain though coz in real life many gardens are quite sparse like that....i was tryin to keep it real ...(sometimes real is boring though) lol

I like this, the inside is great, the outside is perfect for my stupid computer (it hates flowers and stuff for some reason XD), and it's a really nice size home

Even if the outside is plain-ish, it leaves room for loads of user customization. So you made the right choice "keeping it real" as you say.

One problem i see.....the dining table in the front room looks out of place...think about how long it would take to get from the kitchen to that table! haha, i do really like your kitchen, little details like the tile going around the kitchen and incorporating the bar into the kitchen is a slick idea! one other suggestion i also have is that when designing your homes, make sure the "theme" matches. For example, the kitchen cabinets with the round doors look a little out of place, with the square windows and lights you chose. And maybe a grey kitchen instead of brown to match the rest of the house? i think that would make this home even more spectacular!

...wow this got very wordy! haha, what started as a simple thought turned into a novel....i do hope you wont be offended by this, im just hoping to help you! Overall, its really good!

before I download this, just to see if I actually have somewhere to put it. can you tell me if the street side of the lot is the short or long side? I see it's a 4x3 lot so is the 3 street facing or is the 4?

Also this house looks really great. I like the lack of landscaping, I don't see alot of spectacularly landscaped yards IRL so it always looks a little fake to me when i see lots for the sims that look like they'd take a full time gardner to maintain

I cant remember but you can put it on an empty lot that is a little bigger and just rotate it if you want.

really impressive, playable and authentic to everyday life. it is very similar to ones i have (painfully) done. i hate building with a passion, so you saved my life. thanks. by the way even the 'best' houses get makeovers by the downloaders. these fancy pants houses are often a pain to play in.
cheers

So realistic, you don't see that a lot in custom TS3 lots! It's lovely, great price and well-suited for a newlywed couple I have in mind. :3 Thanks!

What wallpaper is that in the living room area? That looks awesome.
