...for all the homeless gingerbread people in your neighbourhood...

This cottage is made from the finest baked goods, with picturesque side-entry porch and gable windows. Gingerbread sculptures add interest to the block. The front entry has been rather neglected since the porch was built, but still opens, and there is also a kitchen door - mainly accessing the dustbin!

The garden contains both gingerbread vines and marshmallow bushes, ready for sale or to restock your fridge. Keep them watered, and they'll keep fruiting nicely. There are also some conventional flowers. The yard on the other side of the house is basically empty, and could be used for parking or for a new garden.

The inside of the house is conveniently arranged, with an eat-in kitchen roomy enough for the family, and a long parlour opening onto the garden. Spiral stairs lead to the top of the house, and there is an extra washroom tucked in behind the stairs.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, with private access to the bathroom from the master bed. The landing is roomy enough for a dresser or desk.

The house comes sparsely furnished for a gingerbread-couple. Harvest a few marsmallows, and you'll be able to afford some extra furnishings very quickly.

Notes for players -

Playtested for about a week.
The included furnishings are those seen in the top-down screenshots.
Other items can be seen in playtest shots - they come from Moon_Ez or from Parsimonious, linked below.

Marvine's stair animations and Echo's harvest basket didn't package, so they are included separately in the rar.

Please report any problems. And Merry Christmas!
