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.

Wow! This is gorgeous, and fabulous, and any other -ous I can think of. My personal preference would be for a double bed instead of two singles, but like I said, that's my personal preference and most certainly not a comment on the house itself. Thank you for sharing!

Nice planning indoor and nice colours outdoors. Like all the details outside in the garden (patchs, lights, plants etc)

Though, bridge feels a bit like it´s leading to nothing and is there because you really want a bridge.

What you could do is remove the end of the bridge near the waterfall, remove the little island, and possibly shorten the "bridge" and make it a dock for fishing.

I can almost smell the wood smoke from my real grandparents' home. Mind you, they did not live right on top of their pond... and there was no magnificent waterfall, lol! Very nice lot!

Find a road that leads to a waterfall. That's the one.

Hm, well, it doesn't work for me. I tried to put it on that specific lot and it says it's too big to fit. Maybe you could remake the house without whatever hack you used to make it be part of the lake? That way it will actually work?
