2019 March Speedbuild Starter Home Challenge - 2 Bedroom Starter Home

Lot Traits:
Cat and Dog-Friendly with Gnomes.

This home was built for the 2019 March Speedbuild Starter Home Challenge for the scientist sub-challenge. It originally had a veterinarian station and pet stuff on the lower front room and was intended as a home veterinarian business. The bathroom on the first floor is large enough for a dog washing station. It had a fenced pet yard for patients. I took all that out. You can put it back in if you want a home business.

I also upgraded the cabinets and appliances to new even though they are basic fixtures. I replaced the original, upstairs living area (balcony) with an unfurnished bedroom.

I recommend getting this starter home furnished so you don't have to install fixtures and appliances.

The bathroom is rather nice and large with a separate tub and shower. It has a separate commode room and a skylight over the sink and shower.

The kitchen is spartan with a cheap dining table and chairs, basic fridge, stove, and a microwave. Your sims can nuke their food until they learn cooking skills.

This lot has a large, unfenced yard so you can garden to your heart's content or, convert it back to a veterinarian home business and install pet training equipment in the backyard.

This lot can be built without any game packs except it needs the cinder block windows from Jungle Adventure. The yard has Romantic garden stuff. Originally I had intended to make a water feature on the hillside but it would have overrun the $20,000 Starter Lot limitation.

Furnished: $19974
Unfurnished: $12,909

Lot Size: 20x30
Lot Price (furnished): $19,974
Lot Price (unfurnished): $12,909

Default Here you go Victor- the challenge with vet stuff
Ok. You can see that the house itself is the same except for the doors and paints/walls. I did make the upstairs living area into a new bedroom after removing the veterinarian stuff from downstairs and converting that back to a living room.

The contest house had a bunch of CC that I took out for this upload.

@porkypine. I saw 4 items missed and it costs 19.805 after placing. But thanks anyway! Now I found the reason my speedbuild was not good enough :P
