These lots are all starters–as in, less than $16,500 furnished. I prefer my starters to be big on space and short on furnishings, so I don’t have to move my Sims or haphazardly add bedrooms as soon as their household starts growing. So these are all VERY sparsely furnished, with everything you need to keep your Sims motives up and nothing more.

That's my personal preferences regarding starters, but these homes are spacious enough to furnish more elaborately for a family with a bigger budget. And despite their rather spartan interiors, I've tried to maximize these lots' curb appeal because I find them useful as spare housing that's affordable but doesn't sacrifice the neighborhood aesthetic.

Required EPs

I've only used one important EP item: the window from Showtime. I also used a couple flower bushes (from Pets and Ambitions) but they are not important at all; you could replace those with the $1 base game hydrangeas or whatever you like.

Custom Content

I've used the following custom content in all four lots. The roof specific to each lot is listed separately under the details. Nothing is included in the download, so if you want these items you have to download them separately.

Big thanks to the Simming community on tumblr! I built these lots especially for all the folks over there, too many to name, who look at my creations and encourage me to build more
