Due to the house being on an island, the lot is NOT flat.

How to add the lot to your neighbourhood:
- Place a 20 x 20 lot in the ocean in edit town mode
- Place the lot on that empty lot, and you should be good to go.

Routing:
Even though the stairs go into the water they have been playtested and can be used by everyone (Newspaper delivery, sims from children & up). The landing after it is also routable, so if your sims go swimming they'll thread the water from the rocks & then swim where you instructed them to.
A thing to note is though, that sometimes sims will have an issue if you try to send them home from boating. The sims will get home fine if they were on the mainland, but if they were on the ocean & on a boat, you might need to manually click near the home and choose "boat here" and then have them leave the boat & swim the rest of the way. I have no idea why it happens since it seems to be random & I tried to changle the landscape in every different way & change the front of the lot, but nothing fixed it. So just be mindful of that. Every type of service works though, from getting rid of a pet to maid service, since those come from the maindland.

It's been playtested throughly, and everything can be used accordingly.
The glass roof & some of the windows on the (fake) greenhouse are from the store greenhouse set. However those are the only items used from it, so if you don't have it you can just continue the lattice roofing from the mooring post and replace the windows and you're set. Since the whole thing is on a deck if you want to plant harvestables in the greenhouse you will need to type the cheat moveobjects on before planting, or buy planters.

I ticked all expansion packs I used, but most of them don't really matter if you don't have them, and items can easily be replaced.

The only expansion packs you do need for this build to look like it should are Island Paradise & Seasons. & University Life

Items used from other expansion packs (so you know what to replace if you do download this without every EP):
  • Supernatural: Chess table,toy box, 3rd floor deck arm chairs
  • Generations: Fridge, child's room butterfly decal, Drawers in master bedroom
  • Late Night: Bathroom sinks, Handsoap decor, Orchid vase in the study
  • World Adventures: Dining room chandelier, bookcase
  • Pets: Lounge chairs on 2nd floor deck

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.
