For sims that are sick of living in the suburbs, Backdoor Lane provides an alternative: a couple of small town lots with a more urban look and feel. They fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, creating a maze of backyard gardens and interconnected alleyways when placed in a tightly spaced neigbourhood. Most of them work as corner lots as well as facing the street, creating a very different impression depending on how you place them and what's on the lot next door.
Backdoor Lane 15:
I didn't think it was possible to build a Backdoor Lane starter house (the pavement and street lights alone cost a fortune), and indeed it's not easy. But it worked, and it even turned out quite nicely: Backdoor Lane 15 is a proper two-story city house for the bargain price of just under 20K, ready for 1-2 sims to move in, all basics included. It's very sparsely furnished but has lots of spare room, and will fit in seamlessly with the rest of Backdoor Lane.
1 x double bedroom
2 x bathroom (1 furnished)
1 x kitchen/dining
3 x spare room (empty)
Basic appliances included: lights in- and outside, toilet, shower, fridge, kitchen sink, phone, burglar alarm, trash can, smoke detector, bookshelf. The yard is empty and the garden just a bare of grass; enough room for driveways but none included.
Please note: The outside paint on the upper floor and the wood floor inside the house are unhidden from the catalogue and thus will not be selectable in your game (unless you've unhidden them as well). Don't worry if you can't select/remove them, there's nothing wrong with your game, just paint over them once and they'll behave like any other paint.
This collection (frillen) as well as this one (loba) and that one (windkeeper), the mini lots by Andi8104 and the ones based thereupon (MaryLou) have been very useful in making the Backdoor Lane neighbourhood. Thanks for making them available.
Please don't PM me with neighbourhood terrain requests (look in the Neighbourhoods section instead), downloading issues (I can't help you -- look in Site Issues, Q-XPress forums etc), or Build Mode questions (general questions go here, lot specific questions in the d/l thread). Thanks.
