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.

Looks fab! Could you confirm it's been gameplay tested, though? I'm just a bit concerned that Sims won't be able to walk up the stairs - I tried a similar placement in a lot I built, and Sims complained about not being able to get up the stairs. If it works on your lot, that's brilliant.

It's been playtested and it definitely works in (my) game. The trick is to place the stairs at a 45 degree angle; if you place the staircase 'straight' the surrounding walls seem to block it, but placed diagonally it works just fine. The diagonal placement is a solution I've come up with myself, and if the staircase behaves differently in other people's games I'd be interested to know. Hopefully, it will work for everybody, though!

Brilliant! I will try this solution - I've been placing spiral stairs straight, and as you say, the Sims were then complaining that the walls blocked them. Thank you!
