Hi everyone!
Do you want to save time? Not for your sims. FOR YOURSELF. Save your time!

The Garden of Time and The Garden of Time (fixed) - Just the Garden
Size of the lot: 2x2, Starter Home
Price: $19,859
The original version has 2 bushes impossible to trim. The (fixed) version has all its bushes easily attainable.

The Garden of Time II - Fully Furnished House... and a Crypt!
Size of the lot: 2x2
Price: $47,012
All the bushes are easily attainable here too.

The Garden of Time & The Garden of Time (fixed) - This lot is very special. It's main purpose is...

Regular Simmers!
It's small, but it's yours!
- Build a tiny cabin or narrow tower in the hole.
- The long, narrow part of the structure in the back can accept a ladder or stairwell, you can add extra floor(s).
- On nice weathers, install your sim(s) in the garden!
- 3 sims can live happy on this lot with minimal building and furnishing. With a cabin or tower in the hole, up to 5 sims can live here without problems.

Creators, Storytellers, Movie-Makers and other Creative people out there!
A test-zone ready in a minute!
No more spending hours on creating an ambiance! Pop this somewhere, pop something in the hole (or not), add your sim(s). Then make your tests, scenarios or pictures. Feel free to transform this, go nuts, it's your new work tool! :D

A starter place. Mostly unfurnished. A hole in the middle.

What will you put in the hole?
- A garden Gnome with followers and bad intentions
- Perpetually pouring water
- Sim kids laughters
- Sims eating too much
- Sims kissing too much
- Sims putting the garden on fire
- Sims scrapping other sim's works of art
- Sims catching an old boot
- Sims getting caught cheating
- Who knows what you will come up with? I would love to see that!

Why is OFB required?
- For the outdoor lamps around the building in the back
- For the stone floor
- Because a crafting station (flowers, toys, robots) can fit very well in that building in the back

Why is Night Life required?
- So you get one more indoor plant you can gather in the bottom-right corner
- Because the Deep Sleeper by Igor and Sons (vampire coffin) fits in that building in the back...

What if you have Apartment Life?
- Well... a Cauldron and Spellbook also fit very well in that building in the back.

What if you have Bon Voyage?
- Well... you can put a tent in the hole. You can use the lot for a temporary vacation instead of as a main home.

What if you play a 'medieval' game?
- Add a few floors to that building in the back, and make it a perfect acoustic tower for your Bards!

Could Rahan live here?
- The chairs, table, lamps, arches and fences don't quite fit the time, but otherwise sure.

The Garden of Time II - I got a house! And there's a crypt in my garden!...

Similar to the original lot, but sims can easilerly live in here, because they have a fully furnished house!

The style, the styles!
As you can see on the pictures, the furniture inside the house shows a mix of cheap and expensive, modern and old.
I'm from Montreal, eclectic city where you can find a fast-food joint near an expensive french Bistrot with a residential building in the middle, like in a sandwich between the two. On every street we have buildings that seem like they popped out of nowhere, without really paying attention to what was beside them. I always liked that aspect of my city, so I guess somehow there's some of that influence at play in the choices of furniture here.

Bushes : The Garden of Time
I updated the lot - In the (fixed) version of the lot, all bushes are easily attainable.

In the original version of the lot, two (2) of the white rose bushes are difficult to trim near the narrow part of the building in the back.

The Garden of Time II has all its bushes easily attainable as well.

Cyjon made a mod to allow sims to trim inaccessible bushes. Get that mod here.
If you don't want to download any extra gizmo, get the (fixed) version of this lot.

There is very little CC - INCLUDED:
I hate it when a Lot pours an endless quantity of content in my downloads folder, so I kept things to a minimum.

The Garden of Time & The Garden of Time (fixed) has 7 Bushes, 5 Terrain Paints and 2 Maxis Recolors (chair+table).
Everything else is Maxis!

The Garden of Time II Same CC + 2 paintings.

Enjoy the lots!
Take lots of pictures with it! Make lots of movies! Have fun! :D
