Over here in Australia we have housing commission homes provided by the government for low income earners or people in need of help. So this started off as a challenge to myself, to build some cheap council houses for $10,000 and under, and I thought others might find them useful too.
For impoverished sims who start off in cheap boarding type houses (see my Down on Your Luck Hostel) due to no 20K handouts. Saving up 10,000 is a more attainable goal than the normal $20,000 starter house.
For newly made CAS sims who need some extra cash left over to start a small bushiness.
For elderly Sims with no children at home.
House #1 Green and Yellow has no kitchen sink but has better benches and a back door. The door can easily be swapped for another bench. Also has a cheap built in wardrobe and shower/tub. $9,990
House #2 Pink and Burgundy has a bath but no shower. Also has a cheap built in wardrobe. $9,987
House #3 Blue and orange has a tub/shower but no wardrobe. $10,000 exactly.
Each house comes with basic kitchen and bathroom fixtures, lights, phone and smoke detector and a small amount of landscaping. No burglar alarms. Each house can comfortably fit a family of 3, or 4 at a squeeze without using cc. If you wanted to use bunk beds you could squeeze up to 4 children into the second bedroom.
Each lot was shrunk with Mootilda's Lot Adjuster to enable building to one tile from the edge.
