I built in The Sims 2 the famous house of Kevin McCallister from favorite movies: Home Alone 1 & 2, in September 2012, after I got its location and floor plan (671 Lincoln Street, Winnetka, Illinois, a 2-story house plus attic and basement, 4250 square feet, built in 1921). A luxury property for families up to 8 sims, decorated including the rear garage and minivan seen in movie, but it resulted a messy floor plan.
Houses that do not look symmetric but still have some symmetry in them
On a tiny 1×2 lot I built a large, extremely fat and cubish house, completed with pool and hot tub. A good home for a family with 6 sims with a possibility to add 2 extra single beds, but there are not enough bathrooms for 8 sims.
The living-dining-kitchen area use an award-winning diagonal design to create the smallest house in the world of The Sims that offer comfort for a family of 4 sims! Made in October 2012.
This is the best possible starter home, under $20.000 designed for a family up to 4 sims. The 1×2 lot costs only $300 (the 1×1 lot costs $-400 but is too small). The empty home costs $5469, so $14.500 remained for furnishing.
I made this house in 2011 to show the potential of tiny 1×2 lots! My first house on such small lot, designed for my family of 6 sims.
Tiny house on a 1×1 lot under $20.000 designed for a starter family with 2 sims. Notice the efficient usage of the space under staircase. Size: 67 squares (not including 5 squares of staircase void). Designed in July 2012.
I has been criticized for making too squarish houses with too few rooms, so in July 2012 I decided to improve the original Tiny Lot House, now the house is even smaller and include also a pool. Kitchen is separated from living-dining while the upper floor plan is composed by 3 rooms and a small hallway. Designed for families of 4 Sims.
