Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Old Country Cottage - An old, little, and over grown cottage off in the country. Its quite cozy, I think you'll enjoy it!

Details
- 4 Bedrooms
- 2.5 Bathrooms
- Open Floor plan
- Fire Place
- Kitchen W/ Breakfast nook
- FF $135,015
- UF $52,000
- LS 3X3
- Playtested? Yes! On a clone; Works great!

The unfurnished version has much less CC than the furnished version, so if a lot of CC scares you, I recommend the Unfurnished version.

--> For the Lot to appear in your game the way I have made it, you need to download these 3 Items that I could not include due to creator policies <--

The lot will look about the same without the last two items because they are small, but if you want the house to look right you must download the wooden floors from Simscredibledesigns and install them before you insatall the lot:

‘Modern Wooden Floors set’ at the bottom of the screen (all parts):

You Also Need The ‘Partiture’ at the bottom of the screen. Link: http://sims2.simcredibledesigns.com...obj/other6.html

You Also Need to download the Victorian Build and Garden Set (Under ‘objects’ Picture of the red Victorian house near the top) Link: http://www.vitasims2.com/sims2.htm

This house is really charming. I'd love to download it but I can't seem to locate the victorian build set on Vitasim's site. Do you have a direct link to the page it's on? Or don't they allow that? Anyway, it really is a beautiful and cozy house. Thanks!

Thank you for your help , their site is very strange in that all of the pages have the same URL. This makes it very hard to locate specific items. I'm sorry I couldn't include a direct link.


Thanks for all of your Comments everyone!

Neat house! I really, really like it! So of course HAD to download it! Thanks so much for creating it!

Just to put my "2 cents in" everybody, there are page numbers at the bottom of each page on the VitaSims site. The Victorian Build and Garden Set is on page 69, or the direct link is: http://www.vitasims2.com/sims2objects_69.htm

Hmm .... I didn't use any cheats to place the objects! The only thing that I can think of that might by causing the problem is the roof over the bedroom? Perhaps removing it will allow you to play it again.

Try as I might, I could find nothing to criticize, constructively or other wise. Your house is simply stunning. I only wish I had a fraction of your talent.

Hi Ramond,

I simply love your house and like Gheliane, I had the same problem with my sims not being able to access the bed in the master bedroom. However, I do not wish to delete that roof because the house would look so different without it. I think it's simply beautiful, how you managed to merge the main roof with a "dormer". Do yo have anymore suggestions about how I can make my sims go to that other side without having to delete that section of the roof?

I love realism in my game. But not to the point where it looks ugly.

I would suggest trying to re-arange the furniture, but if that dosen't work the only othe option I can think of is to delete the roof.
