Update, 2007-03-02:
Replaced the zip -- anyone who downloaded this before and got an empty sims2pack, try again. See this thread for more info.

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 08
is a two-story family house with a home business on the ground floor (currently a flower store). The private part of the house has a separate side entry; on the other side is a parking lot for two cars. Works very well as a corner lot in both directions.

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom
2 x bathroom (one belongs to the store)
1 x kitchen/dining
2 x living room (the upstairs one could be turned into another bedroom if you need it)
1 x hobby room
1 x store with small break room

Fully furnished, although I think I may have forgot fire alarms now that I think about it. The store is fully stocked, including two workstations; cars are included (which means if you get rid of the sportscar the house will already be a lot cheaper).

If you think the small breakroom (currently only has a fridge and an espresso machine) isn't enough for your employees but don't want them to roam freely around the house: the downstairs living room can be easily cut in half, making it a small living/hobby room accessible from the break room, with a locked door to the hallway (where the stairs are).

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.

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.

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.

Two years too late, but I agree. This is the roomiest and cleanest of your home businesses and Backdoor Lane lots. Thanks for sharing this with us, I've made good use of it as a flower shop.
