Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Fledgling Flats is a new street of 1-story modern starter homes. Each home was designed by a first-year student entering the Landgraab Academy of Design and the teachers assure us that these houses are very livable. The substantial savings on architecture fees have been passed on directly to you.

This Art Moderne home has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths on a 2x1 lot with all skill-builders and a few extras: computer, tv, and stereo. The low price of $19,413 leaves you some money until you can find a job. Fully furnished for two. The spare bedroom suite is unfurnished, to allow for various uses. The foyer has double entry doors and there are also double doors into the master suite. Lighted inside and out. Tastefully decorated in muted tones, but there's plenty of time to choose your color scheme before you move-in.

This little jewel is cosier than the average house in the series, but that's because it holds a surprise: a small covered swimming pool. The master bathroom has space for a sink and shower-tub upgrade. The spare bedroom is large enough for a nursery, twin beds, or a hobby room. Space has been set aside for a future 1-car driveway. This house is compact, but we haven't skimped on essentials.

Unfortunately, for this amount of money we were unable to supply any landscaping, except for the newly planted lawn. The parkland behind each lot is for sale, which means that you can use the LotAdjuster to expand this lot at the back, if you require additional space.

Here is a link to the design criteria used for all Fledgling Flats lots:

The cost of this roof was lowered by replacing the default walls on the roof with foundation walls. For more information:

Base game compatible. No CC. Seasons proof.

Lot Size: 2x1
Lot Price: $19,413

  • 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 love them, I like the simplicity of lines, and of course, the amazing roofs. I dowloaded three houses of the group, and I'm thinkin about making a whole neigborhood. Is any tutorial for this type of building that I missed?
Sorry about my english, I have a small vocabulary...

No, I don't know of any tutorial for this type of building. Try searching for information on the CFE (ConstrainFloorElevation) cheat.
