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.
Been criticized for making too simple and squarish homes, I came with idea to design a Swastika-shaped building. Made in August 2012, redesigned September 2018 to remove fences and redesign pool. Despite of the offensive building shape for some people, the home interior design is beautifully decorated using a theme with light wood and white. 4-square wide rooms create a compact but efficient layout even for large families of 8 sims in just 272 squares of floor area. How many swastikas can you count in this house?
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.
This is an improved version of Tiny House I which was criticized for lack of realism and too few rooms, combined with the beautiful style of Tiny House II. Home plan designed with separate kitchen and 3 bedrooms at upper floor, and completed with a small swimming pool Designed for families up to 4 Sims.

Floor area: 138 squares + 6 squares of staircase void.

PS: I do not know how to create such small lots like 1×2. I downloaded them from ModTheSims.info (Mini residential lots by MaryLou).
