Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A small one-bedroom house, built on a 10x20 lot so it'll fit pretty much everywhere.

1 x double bedroom
1 x bathroom
1 x kitchen/dining/living room

The house has a covered porch in front and back; includes basic skilling items (bookcase, mirror, stereo), with room for a computer and a dresser and/or easel upstairs. You could also put a crib up there. Both the front and the back side could be used as a street side.

Prices given below (F = Furnished; U = Unfurnished) are when placed on a regular 20x30 lot; on a 10x20 one it costs 800§ less than that.

Please don't PM me with questions. Post questions/feedback about this particular house in this thread, generic build mode stuff in the Build Mode forum. Thanks.

Lot Price: 15.066§ F, 12.702§ U

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks for going smaller - I downloaded a world that has 14x20 lots - your lots even small - were not small enough - I tried to build and got tired - I checked one more time and you have one that fits - hope you build more at the 10x20 size - again - Thanks....

I would like to thank you most enthusiastically for play-testing your houses. I've been downloading (and subsequently) deleting worlds that *clearly* have never been play-tested. It's a shame that many creators don't take the extra time to make sure their work won't muck up someone's game. So oodles and oodles of THANK YOU for making sure we get awesometastic downloads!

is it can be sims tiem now plees?

plasticbox, your Wee Barnoid set is by far my favorite of any I have seen.
I've always favored small lots and so I'm happy to say I have the whole set!

Bravo! And keep up the good work!

Once again - Super cute house. The variety you have in your Barnoid houses is fantastic! Keep up the great work!

What can I say that hasn't been said already? Imaginative work with minimum basics. Much appreciated, thank you!

When my desktop computer died and I was without TS3, I was upset, but when my mother lent her laptop to me I was happy...
Until I noticed that there werent very many starter homes and I was unable to use the internet on her laptop to download.
I now have my own laptop and am happy to finally have your lots back in my game, thanks.

Wow, did you use a fence instead of a foundation; cuz that was brilliant! The way the pillars fit is genius.

elles sont toujours aussi fabuleuses tes maisons: petites mais il y a juste ce qu'il faut (dans celle-ci il n'y a pas le coin tv!!). Tu arrive bien à maîtriser l'outil construction, tu utilises beaucoup les demi étages et je suis admirative!

I love starter homes, especially yours. You've been my favorite creator since the Sims2. Thanks for your fantastic ideas.

lol, this would be perfect for my custom world where i accidentally made all the lots too small!

Hi pbox. Thank you for continuing the Wee Barnoid series. Can I ask if 10x20 is your size of choice going forward? I'm building a world and I have set up a Wee Barnoid area, and if you are going to make a lot more of the 10x20, I'll set up an area for that. I know I will want every one of them. Thanks again.

lion: I have no idea. I currently don't have a world to build in, so I don't build anything. I'll alway try not to make lots larger than necessary, but I'm not going to build to anybody else's specs.

Understood. Rather, I'm trying to build a world that can use your houses, preferably going forward. But I understand if you haven't decided on anything.

I knew I could trust you! I finally gave in and got myself TS3 and rather than spend time building (which I love to do usually) I wanted to dive in and see what the simselfs could get into but there were no houses that they could afford, so here I came! And what goodies you have, I'm about to have some very lucky sims in my game. Thank You, Plasticbox.
