Penny Patton wrote this super-useful blog post on optimizing Second Lfie prims for builds before Linden Lab dropped its prim increase news, but all the more reason to highlight it now. The better optimized the prims you work with, the more you can do with even more prims. Penny is a longtime master builder in SL (here's another great post), so you should probably heed advice like this:
You don’t even have to get as fancy as I have. Have a 512sq.m. parcel for your house and want to take advantage of this to have infinite rooms? Keep the home furnishings to a minimum and put a door inside to act as your teleporter. Make the rezzer a lightswitch next to the door and use it to select the room the door will take you to. Or, even simpler, a holodeck skybox where you just change the scene around you, without the need for a HUD. Setting up and packing your own scenes is super simple, and you can get free holodeck scripts off the marketplace to set up your own right now!
