I found some old starter homes that I had made ages ago and never uploaded them or shared pictures from them. They're based on the apartment lots here:
They're not perfect and that's the point. I wanted something that my simmies needed to get a loan for and be able to upgrade along the way. These homes are for couples and families just starting out with minimal funding.
They're 1x2 lots, and completely unfurnished for the most part. This is how they look in my new terrain so far,
I'm highlighting the cute little yellow one, I call it the Yellow Provencal. It's 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
I love the yellow doors and yellow shutters
The first floor has a master bedroom and ensuite bathroom, space for a kitchen and living area.
The second level has two bedrooms and another bathroom. At the top of the stairs is a landing with enough room for a small study area or reading nook.
