Tiny House

My second The Sims 3 home, inspired by exterior of Tiny House I ‎and interior of Tiny House II built by me in The Sims 2.
I used the smallest lot available in Sunset Valley (16×18) instead of regular 20×30 lot, to make it compatible with possible 20×20 lots in other worlds. Feel free to decorate landscape after placing in your desired lot size.

Expansions required: none, The Sims 3 base game only.

Terraced House 1×1 122

Do you think that is impossible to built townhouse / rowhouse in The Sims 2?

These houses were built on larger lots then the lot was shrunk using Lot Adjuster, which allows reducing the non-buildable area with 1 square, making possible buildings that apparently continue from one lot to another.

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.

House on a Tiny 1×2 Lot II

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 are 3 rooms accessible via a small hallway. Designed for families of 4 Sims. You can put one single bed in each bedroom, but I recommend putting two beds in one bedroom and use other room for other purposes. This was a spontaneous idea, aka house made without pre-planning.
