Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
No EPs required.
No custom content. Shown in the pictures (but not included) is a roof recolour by Neveah223 @ ESB, from this thread.

Small starter house with garden, sparsely furnished for 1-2 sims, with two spare rooms/bedrooms. Covered front porch, terrace in the garden, room for a driveway next to the house.

1 x double bedroom
2 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining
1 x living room
2 x spare room (empty)

All basics included, no extras.

Playtested in Base+Pets, the double bed underneath the roof slope works. If you put objects underneath the slope in the upstairs hallway or the small room, you need to test whether sims can use them, it may be that not everything works there (I think it depends on which tiles of the object an animation is using). A dresser in the hallways works, for example (see screenshot).

This is a "Bigger Attic", see here for a tutorial.

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: 19.977§
Number of bedrooms: 3 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Starter Furnishings
Special Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

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.

You make the most beautiful small starters.

Where did you put the bed? In the location shown on the screenshot, double beds do work (at least, in my game they do).
