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.

Mini starter on a 1x2 lot, with fenced-in garden and a covered porch in front. Furnished for 1-2 sims, two spare rooms, enough space for one rotated driveway in front of the house.

1 x double bedroom
2 x single/twin bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining
1 x living room

The downstairs bedroom would make a good nursery. There is a small attic as well, but that's only for show -- sims can't walk in it or interact with objects in there. However, it is a good storage space for stuff they don't need at the moment (think cribs and toddler toys), or for the synctimer/batbox/other hacked objects.

All basics included plus a stove, a mirror and a fireplace. 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: 19.980§

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.

Is that big window with white siding letting light into the stairwell? How nifty! I like the combination of grey rock with white siding accents. And the itty bitty porch! Another super cutable house. If I had but one request, it would be to have a fireplace with a stone walled chimney, but the white smokestack on top is good too.

Yes of course =)

And do you mean a chimney for the existing fireplace? That's not hard to add -- you only need the cfe cheat it you want it to be the same height as the existing smokestack .. if you don't mind the chimney being higher, you can just put it there (no need to re-expand the lot or anything).

This house is adorable, I love it. If my family were smaller I'd use it for my self sim but my hubby (Sephiroth) and I have 6 cats all modeled after my real babies.
