Title: Newbie Road 50 [NL] - Starter House
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential > Starter Homes

Cost: 19.931
Lot size: 2x2

Nightlife expansion required.
No custom content.

Description:
I completely failed to realize until just now how utterly fantastic U-shaped stairs are for small houses! They're not only easier to integrate, but they make the basement/upper floor much more useable too because the hallway remains in the same place. Anyway: This is a tiny starter house for 2-3 sims, equipped with a small pool and two driveways, some landscaping and decoration.

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen

Basic appliances included: lights, toilet (expensive), bathtub, fridge, kitchen sink, phone, burglar alarm, smoke detector, bookshelf. This house also has an outdoor grill, a toaster oven, an easel and a pool; two driveways included. There's no real living room, but with such a nice garden and perpetual blue skies I would rather hang out at the pool anyway =).

Expandability: Second floor might be an interesting option (requires having figured out split-level stairs), or simply add a room behind the kitchen. The basement could also be expanded a little bit.


Note:
If you get an "expansion pack data required" error upon installation, use Clean Installer instead of the Maxis one. Apparently this is a known issue (not specific to this download), see this thread describing the problem and this post (daysies) explaining the workaround.

Enjoy!
