Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Requires NL and OfB.
Custom content: frillen's Invisible Driveway is included as a separate file -- put in your Downloads folder before playing this lot. Also, stairs by crocobaura included; see the stairs thread for instructions on how to install them. This lot will work fine if you don't, you only won't be able to use them in other lots since 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 51a:
City starter on a 1x2 lot, very similar to Backdoor Lane 51 but with a basement. Furnished for 1-2 sims with room for more.; kitchen/dining, living room and bathroom on the ground floor, two bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs. One driveway in the backyard, car not included.

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

All basics included. Playtested.

This lot has been shrunk with LotAdjuster See here for more information:

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.

Cute ... and uses space extremely efficiently. The house is a lot more roomier than one might think!

I've recently become addicted to 1 x 2 lots after all this time, and eagerly look for those compatible with my few expansions ... and not too heavy with the CC. (I have quite enough of it!) Thank you!
