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 17
is a starter house that will fit in nicely with the rest of Backdoor Lane. Furnished for 1-2 sims with a spare bedroom and a covered porch/veranda that leads out to a small garden in the back. Two cars can park in the yard -- note that the cars on the screenshot are NOT included, I only put them there to show where the driveways are (hard to see otherwise, as they're invisible).

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom (empty)
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen
1 x dining/living room
1 x living room (upstairs; empty)

Basic appliances included: lights, toilet, bathtub, fridge, kitchen sink, phone, burglar alarm (front door only), trash can, bookshelf, two driveways. No smoke detector, as it's not needed yet.

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 my favourite fence =).

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.

  • 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.
