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 29a
is one of a mini series of four small starter houses (Backdoor Lane 29a/b/c/d), they're almost identical on the outside but have slightly different floorplans. All houses have a small garden in front + back, a front and back porch, and parking space for one car behind the garden. This house has:

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom (empty)
1 x bathroom (a small one -- only toilet + shower)
1 x kitchen/dining/living room

All basics included: lights in all furnished rooms and outside, phone, burglar and fire alarm, trashcan, bookshelf. This house also comes with a stove and a cheap car.

The 1-tile empty space behind the stairs could be made into a mini storage room with access from the front porch -- I didn't include that because there's other things that matter more for a starter house, I thought.

Thank you:
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, as well as for the driveway of course.

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.
