Presenting the second home on Tightwad Street...

I wanted to see if I could go cheaper with the homes - I mean cheap! What's cheaper than living on Frugal Lane? Yup, Tightwad Street , where the homes are 10k or less. Here we have meager living, but hopefully a bit stylish as well. Furnished with the necessities, you can use these homes for your straight out of CAS Sims, or perhaps a spouse/relative that was kicked out and needs to find cheap living. With any money left over, upgrades will be easy to do right away. There is also space already plotted out for that future driveway install!

This home has:
  • 2 bedrooms.
  • 1 bathroom (with shower).
  • Fire alarm and phone.
  • No TV, but a bookcase, radio and drafting table.
  • Extremely sparse landscaping to keep the cost inside rather than outside!

No CC was used, but all EPs/SPs are installed.

Any cheaper and the game will pay people to move in! After I took out all the furniture, deleted a few short partition walls, and tidied up the floors it comes in at 6212 simoleans. In addition, the lot is an n x 2, which is important. Helicopters (high levels of Business, Military, Politics, Paranormal, Show Business, and any number of 3rd party careers) cannot land on lots with frontage 1.

Shall we call a tightwad lot w/o furnishings a "Scrooge Lot"? ;o)

Thank you (yet again)!

Thanks for the unfurnished price, @mac and you're welcome! Haha, I think it would qualify to be a Scrooge Lot at that point! Highly cheap. I'm glad you like it.

The lot is 2 in the front and 1 deep, so it should be fine since it's the same width as a 2x2, just... skinnier!

EDIT: I changed it, mac! I see now. I just entered it that way since that is what the lot bin said, but no - I don't mess with building on anything that is just 1 x <anything>, it's just too small and I like my driveways way too much! I'll pay more attention to that if I build on a 2x1 again, promise.

Such a cute concept, and I love the cohesive colour scheme! Wonderfully cheap but still attractive. Especially smitten with the "driveway" ground cover. ^_^

@Liz - Thank you, I really love the colors in this one too! Haha, the "tire tracks" are pretty neat. I don't always remember them, but when I do I think it looks cool too. :D
