Hi folks!

I made this 2x2 lot for my single sims (although they're big enough for couples). It has two small lofts, actually, with two areas in common (a terrace on 1st floor and a small room on the ground floor, which can be used as a gym, for example). You can also use one of the lots for Home Business (I think it's cozy enough for a small pub, for example), making some little modifications in the project, like the position of the door.

In order to control the access of the sims (to each's loft), I used one (included) of the excellent Tunaisafish's smart doors types. You can download all the package (link below) if you want another type. Just configure the front and terrace doors of each sim and you'll have two independent lofts in one lot.

Although it's not a Starter (it's unfurnished), the lot is relatively cheap (19.390 simoleons) and can become cheaper if you get rid of the decoration (flowers, trees and fences). Also, there's room enough between the lofts for a driveway, if you want one (just remove the flowers).

I hope you like it.
