If you want to install the stairs properly, please follow the directions given in the thread linked above. This lot will work just fine if you don't, but you won't be able to select or change the stairs or use them in other lots (they won't show up in the catalogue, which is what the installation procedure is for).

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 37
Three tiny row houses for up to 3 sims each (or maybe 4 if you really squeeze them), with a small garden and a driveway behind each house. Two of the houses are furnished, the third one is empty except for bathroom/kitchen/alarms+phone (i.e. like a real-world empty house). Again, these houses are TINY and won't work for raising more than one kid or hamstering skill objects, but they're excellent to stuff some neglected single sims into.

Each house has:
1 x double bedroom (walkthrough)
1 x single bedroom/study
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living

The house in the middle also has a basement, accessible through the downstairs bathroom. Three driveways and two cars included; I think I forgot to put burglar alarms in the middle + left house (as seen from the street).

If you've questions on how to play multi-household lots, please check out Backdoor Lane 10.

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 and stairs. Extra thanks to Numenor for the BaseGameStarter, without which Seasons-less people wouldn't be able to use this lot.

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.

Lot Size: 2x3
