Wow, my lifetime dream

This time I made a little fairytale to explain the creation of these two farmhouses.
For myself, I always liked this kind of houses and as long as I can remember I wanted to throw myself into the trouble of renovating an old and shabby farm into a comfortable and modern living area.
But more’s the pity, I had never enough money to do so, therefore I created it in the Sims 2 to my own satisfaction.

Lot size: 3x2
Price old farmhouse 55.544,- Simmolians
Price new farmhouse 94.810,- Simmolians
Built with Original and EP1-2-3
The lots come furnished except the shopping list items of course.

Important note, I used Numenor’s wall hack during building and his scriptorium for the Carina Spotight stairs and the Wooden stairs Recolourable
Fat D design kit
This all needs to be installed before downloading.

Old Farmhouse
Underground level a basement with door to the backyard
Ground level a barn and entry to the kichen with a door to the backyard and connecting stairs to the in-between level the (“opkamertje” in Dutch) maybe free translated up-leveled little room?
Split-level in- between floor a livingroom with connecting stairs to basement and second floor.
Second floor with a bathroom and two bedrooms.
Surrounded with a farmyard.

Renovated Farmhouse
Underground level a basement with door to the backyard.
Ground level a spacious hall way with door to the backyard and connecting stairs to the in-between level, and a very spacious living room with folding doors to the backyard and front terrace.
In-between level a spacious kitchen with open stairs to the basement and second floor
The second floor a spacious bedroom and bathroom.
Surrounded with a country garden

A big thanks to the creators of the objects who made it possible to use these items to build both farmhouses and to make the fairytale.
