Edit: I have added a new file containing the lot and CC. I apologize for missing it before - I hate searching for downloads to complete a lot, and I thought I had included them in this one. I hope I have now included them all!

Description: "This old scout hall is now used by community nurses. Mould is happily spreading in the bathroom, but the shower still works. Outside, someone has been weeding the garden in the BBQ area, and the swings are probably still safe."

The little hall is divided into a waiting area and interview room, with a mouldy old bathroom at one end. There is a change table and sink in the clinic, so the nurses can teach parents how to care for a newborn baby (assuming they were able to visit the lot!). In my game, I also have colouring books, baby toys and kid's posters to amuse the clients while they wait.

Outside, there is an old BBQ area and a playground, where the 'playhouse' is really a toilet. There are log seats to rest on.

I use this lot all the time. It's so small you can see everything at a glance, and it fits in well with the poverty challenge. There are no money or energy items included.


Lot Size: 1x5
Lot Price: 00.00

nice... I remember doing something similar for a Sim who was supposed to be flat broke. I used a cheap wall skin for the walls and used the wooden floor that comes up when you have that crawlspace foundation laid down, and put just enough to keep my Sim functional (fridge, bed, toilet, shower) and let the fun begin...
