Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Nightlife, OfB, and Seasons required.
Custom content included: Modular Stairs by Jonesi
Custom content required: Invisible Driveway by roddyaleixo

If you want to install Jonesi's stairs properly, please go to the thread linked above and follow the directions. 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 31
A three-story town house with garden on a 1x3 mini lot, furnished for 2-3 sims with one spare room. Parking for two cars in the yard, cars included.

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom
3 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining
1 x hobby room
1 x spare room (empty)

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 the stairs I've used in 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.

  • 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.

I love the Backdoor Lane series! I use them more than any other house, especially downtown. Thanks for another cool downtown house.

One of my favourite houses from the BackDoor Lane set. Beautifully designed. Nice one!

Very good design. And a good idea to build also 31a as a twin.

Quite nice, but the white color of walls outside sucks.

Then change it. You know where the paint tool is in-game, yes?
