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 27
is a two-story building with a café/bar on the ground floor and a gym upstairs. The café has a large outdoor terrace with access from the front and side, and one inside room with access to the bathrooms, the kitchen in the basement, and a backdoor to the yard. A small showerbath for employees is situated in the basement. The gym has its own small bar (think refreshments/energy drinks) and a sitting area on the balcony where partons can relax and chat. Your sims can work out on the bench press, punching bag, and stereo (I don't have Uni); they can also shop for groceries as the gym offers a selection of "softdrinks".

Playtested with about 15 visitors, works fine. One thing that's hard to see on the screenshots (because the walls are down): the downstairs (café) toilets are two separate stalls, one of them with it's own sink, so no privacy issues.

Thank you:
This collection (frillen) as well as this one (loba) and that one (windkeeper), the mini lots by Andi8104 and the ones based thereupon (MaryLou) have been very useful in making the Backdoor Lane neighbourhood. Thanks for making them available.

Please don't PM me with neighbourhood terrain requests (look in the Neighbourhoods section instead), downloading issues (I can't help you -- look in Site Issues, Q-XPress forums etc), or Build Mode questions (general questions go here, lot specific questions in the d/l thread). Thanks.
