Created for: The Sims 3

Ok, so I got some heat over my last build, which I had advertised as a 'Starter' for $32,000. Considering my usual monstrosities typically pork-out somewhere between $400,000 and $600,000, I thought bringing in a starter home under $32,000 was showing incredible restraint. But, as nice as my last 'Start Here' lot was, it really didn't do anything for the new (or seasoned) game player who might want a stylish, but purist, 'non-cheat-code' starter home to plunk a freshly-baked Sim into. And since Christmas isn't really much fun without some panic-last-minute shopping, I decided to challenge myself and build (and furnish) a true starter home for less than $16,000. In two hours.

I really had to pull out all the design secrets and stops on this build. I used every build-option I could think of to save money - everything from colouring the grass into the flagstone interior floor, to pasting up the cheapest wallpaper available, then re-colouring it into brick, wood and tile. I used pattern, colour and texture to create the illusion of wall art and expensive area rugs, and each furniture piece was selected simply because it was the least expensive available (then re-coloured to match the interior). All the landscaping plants (baby bamboo trees and hydrangeas) were selected because of their price-point - the hydrangeas are only $1 a piece.

There were a few design splurges, like the clear-storey windows and glass entry door, but some of the best design, like the interesting roof lines and the lot contouring, were free (and yes, even the mailbox and garbage can have been designer-matched - sorry, I just couldn't stop myself....) Best of all, if placed on any small 20 x 30 $1,200 lot (like this one on Maywood Lane in Sunset Valley), 'New Day' comes in at $14,603.

So why dump your poor, new Sim into a dreadful, run-of-the-mill EA starter house? Don't you think all the plucking and pulling they just went through in the CAS system was torture enough? Why not show them some mercy? Let your Sim's 'New Day' begin here!
