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.

A friendly family house on a 1x2 lot, furnished for 2–3 sims, with one more spare bedroom. It has a fireplace, a fenced-in garden with terrace, and room for one rotated driveway in front of the house. My tester sims managed to raise 3 kids in here (i.e. a total of five sims -- I wouldn't normally have tried this, but the silly sims decided to have twins on the second try ..).

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

All basics included plus an easel, a stove and a fireplace. There is quite a lot of space in the living room where toddlers can play. Thoroughly playtested in the Base Game.

This lot is shrunk with Mootilda's LotAdjuster (v1.1, available here on mts2) – you can easily expand the lot with that if your sims want a bigger garden.

Have fun!

Lot Size: 1x2
Lot Price: 19.930§

Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Starter Furnishings

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.

Well, my sims will be insanely poor after they buy it, but I guess it's worth it, seeing as it's a nice house.

I hate to be rude, and please feel free to ignore me, but I would really love to know how you get your modular stairs on split levels like that. I've used the indoor foundation, but not with as good an effect.

I basically just like to play uglacies.

This is a very quaint house (ohoho, posh word!!) with lots of potential! Like the spare room being turned into an office, or workshop.... great stuff!

This house is genius, plasticbox. I loved it. When I downloaded it, I was surprised to see that it was a split level. It made my day! I as also surprised at the upstairs walls, and as much as I loved the house, I went completely wacko w/the walls upstairs and it is now my most used house. THX u for uploading.

I love how there is space for a cot in the main bedroom, for those tired simmies who don't wanna trek downstairs!
I'm loving your houses. Gives me more time to play the sims..
