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 Pets.
Custom content: modular stairs by crocobaura – please see this thread if you want to install them properly. The lot will work just fine if you don’t, but they won’t show up in the catalogue so you can’t select them or use them in other lots (which is what the installation procedure is for).

Three row houses, two of them furnished for 2–3 sims each, the third one is empty except for basic fixtures. The floorplans are almost the same in all houses, only the third (emtpy) one is a little bit larger than the other two.

Each house has:

- open kitchen/dining room and a toilet on the ground floor
- living room and single bedroom with balcony on the second floor
- double bedroom and full bath on the top floor
- basement (empty)

There are three (rotated) driveways on the lot; the invisible driveway I've used is not included (I recommend the one by frillen, available here).

This is *not an AL lot* (see Backdoor Lane 10 for info on non-AL apartments), but it's probably not hard to convert it into one.

This lot is shrunk with Mootilda's LotAdjuster (v1.1); you can easily enlarge the lot with that if your sims want more outdoor space.

Have fun!

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: 118.629$

- Steadfast Stairs Open Underneath by crocobaura
- Wooden Stairs Open Underneath by crocobaura
Number of bedrooms: 5 or more

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.

I have to echo Simaholic-x,as well as Alma70: Your homes are perfect for that urban feel, and without them my cities would look less authentic. For that,alone you deserve a hug! *hugs*
Thank you so much!

I like your houses so much. Especially the apartment buildings. It would be great, if they are actually playable as apartments like the ones in Apartment Life. It's sad, you don't have this EP.
I tried to revert some into apartment lots, but it did not work out correctly - there were too many bugs. Then I tried to search for the problems and I realized that you use more than one mailbox. So when converting it into an apartment lot, the mailboxes also get changed and therefore I got the bugs with them. So I deleted them and then converted it, and that worked fine.

Thanks for the feedback, himawara =) on behalf of all those who can actually use it. I'll continue to build apartments for up to and including Seasons, but I'm happy to hear when they work for AL users too.

This is a HOUSE? I was certain it was three apartments at first.

Your lots are always so tiny (yet easy to play), so I was really surprised when I saw this.

Thanks so much!
