Where I live, in fact throughout most of the US, manufactured housing is very common. Although usually called mobile homes, they really aren't very mobile. The homes are manufactured off-site and transported by special trucks to the home site. Some of these homes are installed on private property, but the majority are set up on small lot parcels in mobile home parks.  From there, they are pretty permanent, with only about 5% of them ever being moved again.

The home sits off the ground, supported by a series of jacks that keeps it level and the open area underneath houses the plumbing and power lines.  The most common sizes are single-wide and double-wide, although triple size is gaining in popularity.  The single wide is usually 12 or 14 feet wide by as much as 70 feet long, although most are 60 feet or less.

The Task

Your task is to build a single-wide mobile home measuring 5 x 18 on a lot measuring 15 x 20. You can use a larger lot, but are only allowed to use a parcel of it measuring 15 x 20.  You cannot build either down or up -- it must all be contained on one level.

And for more ideas, check out this mobile home I built awhile ago  HERE
Awesome it is open!
Does decorating the outside include making a patio/verandah area?
Sure, you can do that -- as long as you stay within the 15x20 lot size.
Hi my name is Waffles and I'm a Sims 4 Noob and someone's gotta go first, so here goes!

I had a ton of fun building this!  Again, TS4.

So here's the outside... I might have gone like half a square off allowance with the elm tree, but I *THINK* it's still good.  I forgot to check.

It opens into the kitchen:

The kitchen and living room are open, so here's the living room:

I need advice on bathrooms... they always are bleh.  But here's the bathroom.

Heidy  please!  Hope you like!
NuclearWaffles - You did a great job!  It looks very spacious inside, and that's not easy to accomplish with such a small space.  And there's nothing wrong with your bathroom.  I can't see the sink area but the room is small, not a whole lot more you can do.  I love the floor in the bathroom though!   Yes
, I think you did a great job for a noob with the game! I haven't played sims4 yet but I have to admit, you really show if off well. I really like the kitchen, it just looks so cozy and quite spacious too
Here is my contribution TS4

It is located in Oasis Spring in a 15x20 Lot. The exterior is a bit untraditional, compare with the images I saw in the Internet. Eco friendly?!
