Title: Newbie Road 26a - Starter House
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential

Cost: 19.957
Lot size: 2x2

Nightlife expansion required.
No custom content.

Two-story starter house for 2-3 Sims, furnished, with roof terrace. Some landscaping/decoration.

1 x double bedroom
1 x single bedroom
2 x bathroom (1 furnished)
1 x kitchen/dining
1 x spare room (unfurnished)

Basic appliances included: lights, toilet, shower/tub combo, fridge, kitchen sink, trashcan, phone, burglar alarm, smoke detector, bookshelf. There's enough room for a driveway.

Expandability: Off the right side there's space for one or two rooms on each floor (off the kitchen/current bedroom).

If you get an "expansion pack data required" error upon installation, please try Clean Installer instead of the Maxis one. Apparently this is a known issue (not specific to this download), see this thread describing the problem and this post (daysies) explaining the workaround.

Have fun!

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • 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.

Don't worry, I don't *make* them at this rate (I think that really would be alarming). I'm only uploading houses that I've already built, in the past couple of months or so.

I shall never have to build another ugly starter house again, thanks to all your uploads. You rock! I love your style - they're adorable and realisitic, yet playable at the same time. Do you have any similar mid-sized homes in your arsenal?

All of your houses are so rad! I usually give my sims money at first so they can have a nice house, but now I don't need to, they can already afford it! Thanks and keep up the GREAT work! :-)

Sort of, kind of. Depends on what you mean by "mid-sized". I assume you've seen the slightly bigger ones (expanded versions) that I uploaded already, like #12a or what was it again ... 10a, and 11a; there's also two or three relatively big ones that I'm going to upload in the next couple of days (#29, #36, and a 2-story version of #20 if I get that finished in time). Those are all either starter houses or under 30.000 and about 3BR/2BA, except 29 which is 7(!) bedrooms, 4 baths (that one's a starter house).

Is that "mid-sized" for you? (I really don't know -- I've seen some "cute little cottages" here that look like ... four-star hotels or something. To me. Huge!)

Also, have you looked at the starter houses that tkdjunkie uploaded a couple of months back? I've seen them today for the first time, they're all really nice and they're generally a bit bigger than mine. You might like them.

Hmm, I guess by mid-sized I mean something that a larger family (4-8 sims) would comfortably fit in with space for a couple of cars and all their stuff. But it should still be small enough for the sims to get around the lot quickly, and to run smoothly on a so-so computer. I like houses with a good layout where you can easily see your sims at all times. I hate basements & mountains - they look cool but are a pain to play in. I'm very picky, LOL. For a long time I gave up on downloading lots because they just weren't "playable." But your houses are! I shall check out tdjunkie's downloads and look forward to more of your work. Thanks! :D

Wow! This house has a really cool design and layout! I like the covered doorway and the gives the house a more modern feel. My neighbourhoods are crammed full of your starter homes! My Sims would be forced to live in a world of ugliness without them! (unless I were to use money cheats, lol :lol) Good job!

Because I've been downloading lots of your starter homes I have to say I really love your style. I recognize it all the time when I see it too. I'm playing the Prosperity Challenge right now and so far your starter homes are dominating my neighborhood. :D

Keep up the beautiful work and thank you so much for sharing them with us!<3
