For sims that are sick of living in the suburbs, Backdoor Lane provides an alternative: a couple of small town lots with a more urban look and feel. They fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, creating a maze of backyard gardens and interconnected alleyways when placed in a tightly spaced neigbourhood. Most of them work as corner lots as well as facing the street, creating a very different impression depending on how you place them and what's on the lot next door.

Backdoor Lane 24
Tiny starter house for a single sim or couple ONLY -- this house is pretty solidly furnished for a starter, at the expense of extra room for kids. Features a nice little front porch, live-in kitchen with comfortable sitting corner, two bathrooms, one double bedroom, NO back door (*sniff*).

Furnished including lights in- and outside, burglar alarm, phone etc etc etc. No fire alarm pre-installed (there's nothing there yet to make fire with). Parking for one car behind the house, driveway included but not the car in the pics, that's only there to show where the (invisible) driveway is.

Any problems with cars/carpools arriving and leaving on 1-tile-wide lots, I'd love to hear about them. I'm somewhat unsure because I did have hiccups on larger lots with too many cars parked on the curb, and a 1 tile wide lot may or may not exhibit the same issues. (OTOH there's so many other one-tile-wide lots uploaded here, apparently people's games haven't exploded yet)

If you've trouble downloading this with QXPress, try manually.

Neighbouring houses on the overview pic are Hotel Ampersand (left) and Backdoor Lane 03 (right).


Thank you:
This collection (frillen) as well as this one (loba) and that one (windkeeper), the mini lots by Andi8104 and the ones based thereupon (MaryLou) have been very useful in making the Backdoor Lane neighbourhood. Thanks for making them available, as well as for the driveway of course.

Please don't PM me with neighbourhood terrain requests (look in the Neighbourhoods section instead), downloading issues (I can't help you -- look in Site Issues, Q-XPress forums etc), or Build Mode questions (general questions go here, lot specific questions in the d/l thread). Thanks.

  • 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.

Great house. The only problem I had was that my sim was too dumb to figure out how to get in the booth seating around the table. But it was easily fixed. Thanks again
