Default Terraced Housing [TS2]
As a lot of you may know, my first mini set was these caravans here . Now I'm thinking of doing another one, but terraced houses. Here's what I've got so far:



They're being shrunk and connected in the same way as this tutorial . It's working, but the backs are concerning.



A lot of English terraced houses have a section at the back that sticks out like that. The roof is the problem in the way that it's connected to the adjacent lot. Is there any way I could improve this?

OMG ! It's just gorgeous!
When you mentioned English houses, I just remembered of Shakespeare's house! I think the outdoor lighting like at picture will be suit here. Do take a chance to M&G outdoor lamppost here!

I might put a light in front of one of them, while keeping it at a starter budget.

At the moment, I'm wondering if the joint I showed above looks okay, considering that you have to do that weird thing with rowhouses.

Update: I flipped the house so that the backs match up.

Flipping it is probably the best solution. A flat roof should work too, but might look too dull.

If you remember me, I'm awesome!

Where you draw the row wall over ideally you want it to connect to a wall on the other side to give that joined seamless look. The house next door could be made a little larger or build back further from the road so they meet. It's tricky since each one is a different shape, but they still need walls to meet together if you want them to not do that odd thing with the wall.

I'm building all of the houses to be the same shape with minor tweaks on the outside and layout differences on the inside.
