Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Title: Newbie Road 68 [NL] - Starter House
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential > Starter Homes

Cost: 19.952
Lot size: 3x2

Nightlife expansion required.
Custom content included: 1 x Wallpaper, by myself


Description:
Four-bedroom starter house, furnished for 1-2 sims but can easily hold a larger family and will also support community lifestyles (three of the bedrooms are large enough for a double bed, and there's four bathrooms). Enough room for driveways, combined kitchen/dining/living room with large terrace in font, some landscaping/decoration.

1 x double bedroom
4 x bathroom (2 x furnished)
1 x kitchen/dining/living room
4 x spare room (unfurnished)

One of the bathrooms (the leftmost one in the overview screenshot) can also be converted into another small bedroom, if you move the left wall by one tile. Basic appliances included: lights, toilet, bathtub, fridge, kitchen sink, phone, trash can, smoke detector, burglar alarm, bookshelf. This house also has a TV.


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.

Have fun!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

You are my favourite house maker for the Sims 2. I believe I have the vast majority of your houses uploaded into my game. Thank you so much for taking the time to make these houses and upload them for others to use. I enjoy playing with them and look forward to seeing more.

Thank you so much! I needed a house with two doubles, that was affordable and easily playable. Wow, I couldn't have found better! I also really love the soft exterior color.
