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.

I belatedly realised that Nr. 162 would have been much more useful with a second bedroom, so I made a new version. The downstairs floorplan is a little different too, but it would be easy to remodel along the lines of 162 if you prefer that.

Mini starter on a 1x2 lot, with fenced-in garden and a tiny pond. Furnished for 2–3 sims (or two sims in preparation for a third one), enough space for one rotated driveway in front of the house.

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

Additional living space upstairs. All basics included plus a stove, an easel, a TV, a mirror and a fireplace.

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.


Lot Size: 1x2
Lot Price: 19.982§

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.

I really love the way your newbie Road series looks but for me sadly only the houses like this are really playable the older ones that were made to look like row houses have problems with getting the camera where I can really watch my sims happily. I have to turn neighbors off not to have other walls from nextdoor in my way and with them having split levels the camera always seems to high up for me. But I really love the series and I think they are adorable.

How do you make the upstairs bedroom do that? At the back where the space under the gables is useable? I know how to get the two tile gable (thanks to your tutorial) but how can you use the extra sbace without a dormer? Great house.

Thank you soo much for all of your base game starter houses! I have all EPs but AL and no Stuff Packs, so I just upload base gamers! I think yours are the ABSOLUTE best of the starter houses.
