Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I'm definitely into small and cheap (but nevertheless, interesting) houses.

This is a small A-Frame "special" house; I call it "special" because it isn't a standard 1-level house.
It's suitable for a couple with one or two children.

Note: I've "cleaned up" the lot with Sims2Pack Clean Installer, and I used only original Maxis decors.

Cost: $ 11.249 (unfurnitured)
Lot: 2x2
Floors: 2 + a small lumber-room on 3rd floor (usable as spare bedroom)
Bedrooms: 2 (the 2nd floor can be partitioned to have a third bedroom)
Bathrooms: 1 + 1/2
Sims living in the lot: none
Special feature: 2 "stealth stairs"

Hope you like it!
Number of bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fixtures Only

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

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 should never put a cap on violence!! Suppressing violent urges only leads to psycological internal violence! Got it!? If I were to use an analogy, I'd turn to yeast! The root of all bread making!!

Its very cute, and original. But are there 2 X 2 lots for building in the sims? I don't remeber sing them in my "lots and houses" (I thought it just went down to 3 X 3!) and I would love to have them because little lots and little families load super fast, and don't even slow down the tiniest bit at sunset, and when the helicopter comes!

I had to do a little trick

In Pleasantview there is a very small cottage hidden in a forest, near the huge water tank with the "Sims2" logo. It's built on a 2x2 lot.
I have demolished the whole house and deleted all the trees, and then I exported it.
Then, I reimported it in the game, and it appeared it in the lot bin (the game treats it as a "house") as a 2x2 free lot.

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

thanks!

I love little cheap interesting houses, too. I usually end up expanding the house as the family expands. Often I don't have the heart to move out my family to a bigger house and have all my lovely decorating work deleted. (So, a small cheap house on a large lot is ideal for me.) All those gigantic (and amazing!) houses people make are nice, but I very rarely use them.

More please! :D

Very nice! Hate hacked houses because they tend to screw up career paths for me, at least.

Actually, it's easy to create a hack free lot, using the Clean Installer. But this only work if you want to post the lot here on MTS2: when uploading to the Exchange, no way: all the hacks are there! I had to create a separate, hack free game installation in order to upload it correctly to the Exchange!

I know this is a dumb question since I already d/l it to ea/sims2/downloads, but is that where it's supposed to be d/l to? Oh yea, I obviously like it enough to want it. You're great for making these small homes -- some of us (me) are archetecturally challenged and make boring boxes. lol

You don't have to put the .sims2pack file into the D/L folder: just double-click on it and it will install automatilcally in the proper location.

Thanks, Whitefolks! Actually, I've built many houses (most of which where destroyed, sooner or later...), but I simply was too shy to post them: have you seen what huge and marvellous castles are posted here?
