This is a simple Row of 5 Houses.

Each house has an "Apartment" entrance door and a private front garden (that's not actually private, but it looks like it). Back garden is common, since the game doesn't allow me to create private back gardens.

The floor plan is the same for all the houses, exept the 2 houses at the left and right end of the lot, that have a smaller underground floor.

Each house have:

- kitchen (fournished)
- 3 bathrooms (1 fournished)
- 2 bedrooms
- dining/livingroom
- 2 rooms in the underground

Rent Price
4,528-4,668 §

Lot Size: 5x3
Lot Price: 177.858

This is a picture of all the furniture your sims get when renting the house:

And this is an example of how I furnished one of the units, so you can see you can stuff pretty much everything in this house (good for a medium-big sized family too):

Lovely! Thank you!! This will work well in Apartment Life's newest neighborhood. These remind me of a London subburb. I look foward to using it in game.

O.O Oh my. My underground was not flooded. Maybe your neighborhood is at sea level. It happened to me with an old hood that was all flat, it was impossible to build undergrounds because of it. I'm sorry.

Ooooh, my signature was too old, but I don't have anything to write now...

Nice to see you are still creating lovely lots, annapic
I have always liked yours right from when you first started

I think it is odd that one can't do seperate back gardens
I havent actually made an apartment lot so I wondered if it work by changing lot zoning then changing it back again

I checked it, I can do separate back gardens only if I don't use the foundation. Houses must be directly on the ground. I actually did a new row. Thinking about uploading it or not.

oh that's cool
I'd be interested in your new row....personally I am currently prefering rows over apartment units

I have thought of doing a row of British style terraced houses and they really need an individual back yard, but it's finding the time.
