This is the house I use in the screen shots for my fancy butts. It's small with plenty of room to grow. The bathrooms and kitchen are furnished. I used one cheat to make the stairs a bit shorter 'cause they didn't fit and I didn't want to make the house larger. I did have to make it a bit longer (only two foundation tiles) than you'll see in the screenies for my siding because it was just too small otherwise.

Out back there's a small pond with a dock, a starter green house, a small orchard, and room for a pool should you choose to build one. There's also a breeze way style sun porch.

A copy of this lot was play tested for one sim week without problems.

Lot Size: 4x4
Lot Price: $86,832

What kind of cheat did you use for the stairs?

I'm assuming you're asking because it looks like you're a builder. I used Boolprop constrainfloorelevation false. Do you know how to make stealth stairs? It's the same concept. On the 1st floor I placed modular stairs just like you would outside on the ground. Placing one set then placing the second at foot of the first. It indents your floors just like it would outside on the ground. Then you place some flooring from the landing of the second set of modular stairs to where you want your shortened stairs to start. Place the stair, add the rails, change the color (if they're re-colorable) before you put the flooring back. Once the flooring is set back to normal you can't change the color of the top stair without bringing the floor down again. Then viola! They're two steps shorter than a normal set of stairs. Your sims will do a step "hiccup" and will magically transport the last two steps to the top. Same for going down. I use it all the time and have never had a problem. It makes building a whole lot easier. Here's a link to the stealth stairs tutorial... if you're interested. It's 3/4 of the way to the bottom.

That was probably more information than you wanted and might have been confusing. PM me if have any questions.
