1 Cheapo Circle - Starter/No CC

Happy Valentine's Day! There are a few paintings with a Valentine's theme, a koi pond, a love tub and a wishing well. For the price, your romantic sims will get a very nice starter home with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. This is actually a copy of the original occupied lot which was playtested. You will need to finish furnishing the 3 bathrooms and 2 upstairs bedrooms as funds allow.

2 Affordable Avenue - No CC

This is the second in my series of affordable family houses that are under §50,000 with at least 3 decent-sized bedrooms. I thought while I was building these for me, maybe others out there are looking for the same thing.

This particular house would be nice for a growing family of up to 6 sims. It has few decorative items, but it has nice furniture and plenty of room.

10 Oak Street

Photobucket
Before

This is the MATY House of Fail/Phail house for February '09. I'm sure you've seen it lurking in Pleasantview, looking tiny and unpleasant. I rebuilt this cottage with the restriction of not moving trees or shrubs, which was a challenge. I plan to use it as a vacation home in the Mountain vacation area.

9 Small Street

I forgot I even built this little house, but I came across it recently and decided to finish it. I had already named it to be another in my Small Street series. This lot should comfortably house a family of 4.

1 Affordable Avenue - No CC

This is the first house in a series I plan to build that are under §50,000 with at least 3 decent-sized bedrooms. I like to play challenges, and I've found that besides starter houses I mostly have large expensive houses in my lot bin. This makes it difficult to find affordable housing that is large enough for my sim families who have outgrown their starter houses but who can't afford luxury houses yet. I thought while I was building these for me, maybe others out there are looking for the same thing.

This particular house would be nice for a growing family of up to 6 sims. When the babies and toddlers grow up, you can easily replace the cribs and toddler toys with beds. While there are few luxuries and a very small yard, this house should be fairly roomy for your sim family.

1097 West Dreaming Drive

There is a monthly building challenge on MATY in Planet K 20X6 called "EAxis House of Fail." Basically, every month a house that came with the game is chosen for its crappiness, and people rebuild it, keeping the original outside walls. Sometimes there are other rules - this time the path had to remain as well. The idea is to take an ugly and/or unplayable house and turn it into a nice looking, playable home. Make sure you check out the above link on MATY to see what others have done with the "EAxis House of Fail" houses.

And this is what I chose to do with it.
