    Ooh! This looks very interesting and challenging! ;)
    I'm really having a hard time building budget houses, especially if you want to add lots of details for impression. :open_mouth:
    But I'll try! Count me in and I claim:

    Neighborhood 2: Established homes
    30×20 – single family home, 2-3 bedrooms, 1-2 bathrooms, total lot cost no more than 30k

    Thank you! :)

    I would like to claim:
    30×20 – Row Houses, (at least two homes), 1-2 bedrooms, 1 bath. Total lot cost no more than 20k
    20k, Not even sure if this is possible! :#

    Haha, the moment I saw the row houses, I knew it would be right up your alley! :#

    Very tight budgets :o I'd like to try this one:

    Neighborhood 2: Established homes
    40×20 lot – Single family home, 2-3 bedrooms, 1-2 bathrooms, total lot cost no more than 40k

    Can't for a minute think why :D I don't normally consider budgets, especially for row style homes.

  • RawlaRawla Posts: 7,276 Member

    Neighborhood 3: Generational Homes
    30×20 – High-end community gathering spot, total lot cost no more than 150k

    Hey BnS! Tough challenge!

    So..started on the apartment/housing condo thingy on a 40x30 lot with only a 20k budget... That lot is gigantic for what you can build there and I think there will be a lot of empty space. Also, not so sure a 20k budget for a decent building to really utilize the lot is enough. I have apprehensions about the conditions for that particular lot and to have it fully landscaped and furnished.

    A 5x5 studio room with the cheapest bed, sink, wallpaper, carpet, door, one window, shower, toilet, dining table, dining chair and I splurged and got the cheapest TV is about $3580. Multiply that by 3 and you get $10,740...which is over half the budget and if laid side by side, the space they take fills only about 6% of the total area of the lot which leaves A LOT of open space. Maybe this condo/apartment house would look and do better on a smaller lot size.

    I finished the Duplex! It's on the 30x20 lot in Neighbourhood 2. Haha, I am pretty happy with this, even if I wish I could have added more landscaping. Sadly 40k wasn't really enough for it...

    Loving what everyone has come up with!

    @Talea12345 - did you want feedback on your build? If so, a couple more pics in a slideshow format would be useful. Most people tend to use Photobucket or flickr.

    @Zita1966z - did you want feedback on your build?

    @Ash072 and @Issabella14 would it help if we upped the budget, so you were looking at 13k per build, bringing you up to a cost of $39k before adding the lot cost on?

    BnS - Appreciated! I will still try to keep it at low as possible to 20k since it's amazingly challenging. Granted, I can't do my original concept with a 20k budget but if I could, it wouldn't be a challenge! I was just worried about having enough money for landscaping such a huge lot. :smile:
