Title: Newbie Road 63 [NL] - Starter House (duplex)
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential > Starter Homes

Cost: 19.996
Lot size: 3x1

Nightlife expansion required.
No custom content.


Description:
Two tiny houses for 1-3 sims each, both furnished, for the discount price of only 20.000 for both. This is a remake of another lot of mine -- someone said "I wish it had a basement", so I made a new version (looks similar from the outside, but the floorplan is very different). Room for driveways, no landscaping/decoration.

House 1:
1 x double bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining
1 x spare room (unfurnished)

House 2:
1 x double bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen
1 x dining/living room

Basic appliances included: lights, toilet, bathtub, fridge, kitchen sink, phone, burglar alarm, smoke detector (only in one house, unlike the pics show!), bookshelf.

Recommended hack: You need to assign the doors somehow so that your sims know which house is theirs. I think if you have OfB you can use the locking doors funcionality for that, otherwise get hold of Inge Jones' lockable "watchowt" doors or the access management system (formerly simlogical.com, site is closed =( ... not sure where the best archive is but there are a handful). Or if you only play one house anyway, you can just block the doors to the other one with a chair or something, then you won't need any hacks.


Note:
If you get an "expansion pack data required" error upon installation, use Clean Installer instead of the Maxis one. Apparently this is a known issue (not specific to this download), see this thread describing the problem and this post (daysies) explaining the workaround.

Enjoy!
