Title: Spartan Single Starter Lot With Room To Grow
Category: Residental Lot
Price: $19999
Furnished: Yes, Maxis content only.
Played/Tested: No / No

This lot is designed with two ideas in mind, the first is its a functional starter lot and can meet the basic skill-building needs of a sim. Second, that it can be further grown into without needing additional construction. Likewise if the buyer is interested, there is more then enough room to expand on the first floor.

The front entrance is flanked by the mailbox and garbage can, a roofed entrance allows sims a bit of protection from elements while waiting to come in or going out to check the mail, take out the trash, etc. A pair of pillars surrounded by stucco borders and small hedges give just a hint of landscaping, with more then enough room to grow a small garden of hedges, flowers, whatever as the sim's fortunes grow. There is already a driveway in place, with enough room to build a garage in the future if the buyer so desired.

An exterior view of the back illustrates the stairwell in the rear of the house, along with a similar design concept for the two pillars supporting the roof on either sides of the two story window. This provides for an excellent source of both light and source, even on a spartan starter budget.

Moving into the first floor of the house, it is one wide open space and is furnished in a rather spartan manner. However the concept here is the basic needs of the sim are met, while having just enough room to expand into any objects the sim may acquire throughout their life. The living room part of this area is designed around the sim having a frequent single guest over, there is even room for a married couple on this lot. This means your sim doesn't have to worry about not having enough room, even though this is a starter lot, to start a family of their own.

The dining room and kitchen area is also in line with rather sparten furnishings, and while you're not going to be cooking any gourmet dinners for the boss in the beginning you definitely have the room to expand and upgrade both your kitchen and dining room as you see fit. A small nook has been designed to eventually fit a stove, presently just a toaster oven, which keeps it shielded in the event of a fire. A fire alarm is already mounted, so the buyer doesn't even have to think about that when they upgrade to a stovetop oven.

Having guests over means they'll want to use your bathroom, and in this lot there is already a first floor guest bathroom with enough room to add a sink.

The modular stairwell doesn't get in the way of the rest of the first floor, and the large two story window lets you in plenty of light and adds a bit of taste and class to the otherwise sparsely furnished house.

The second floor provides for plenty of living space for a single to move into being a spouse. A bit of extra space on the second floor could be used for working out, a computer/desk combination or a number of other things without needing expansive construction to make room. The master bedroom while small already has a double bed so romance doesn't have to suffer in this affordable starter lot. A master bathroom rounds off the second floor and is located right next door to the bedroom, so your sims don't have to take unnatural routes through their daily schedules
