Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Cottage apartments originally was a two story affair with a garage tucked under, but when the budget went over the starter price the upstairs was demolished and everything was squashed into the first level. Turns out I actually like the one level home better.

There are three small, one bed, one bath self contained homes. Enough room for one or two Sims and is fully furnished but not decorated. There is an outdoor dining area, and an outdoor skilling area. There originally was a pool (where the chess table is) in back, but was also demolished to keep the price tag low. The tiles are still in place outlining the pool, so if your Sims are a bit better off you can add that back in and move the chess table under the Birch tree.

Each one is considered a starter (§14,373 each), but since it's on one large lot the finished price tag is a bit high. For those without Apartment Life, you will find various mods for door access at Simlogical. If you have Apartment Life just replace the main doors with the "Unique Separator" door (the one with rug attached).

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: §42,820 - Base
§14,373 - Each home roughly
§861-879 - Apartments furnished as shown

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 think my rich sims decided to show off how much money they have, so they're buying all the apartments! :D
