Villa Litsegard

When Fergus' Mind started a CFF thread for his Villa Strandheim, I fell in love with his source material as well. With his gracious permission, I delved into making a version of my own.

Villa Litsegard is a loose exterior recreation of the Dragestil homes of Villa Strandheim and Villa Balderslund. Those two homes are remarkably similar. The shape, with the cupola, and "boathouse" is all Strandheim, while the decorative tiles are from Balderslund. I oriented the home with the show-y facade facing away from the road, the main entrance (up a winding path) to the side, and the informal "backside" to face the street.

I went for a very homey, sorta dated interior. As the structure was taking shape, it seemed like an extremely comfortable, family-focused home, the kind of grounded family that's too busy being close-knit and involved to care that their house is filled with garish wallpapers. The home has 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and 2 half bathrooms. Along with the a living room, dining room, and a kitchen, the ground floor also has an office. The basement has a laundry room, one of the half baths, a cellar storage room, a room with a pool table, and an additional large room which would be great for skills and hobbies. The boats are included with the lot, the cars are not. The name, of course, is just "Dragestil" backwards.

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.
