Title: Lucy
Category: Lots & Housing > Residential

The Description:
The "Open for Business" expansion includes items presumably inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, begun in the nineteenth century [a reaction to the perceived soullessness of the industrial revolution]. The Lucy cottage takes its roots [hopefully] from that same movement, and uses items and walls from OFB.

The Lucy is actually from a floorplan for an HonorBilt brand kit house called the Jewell, sold in 1930 [price noted as "$35-$45 a month, depending on options].

See this page for more information on this particular kit; as you can see, I took some liberty with the plans and layout.

The Facts:
1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen, dining room, and a great room with a raised study area with a view of the pond. Furnished, on a 4x3 lot, for $75,300. Partially decorated. No custom content.

The pictures:
Lucy00: Exterior, full.
Lucy01: Floorplan, flat. The extended living room has plenty of space for further furnishing.
Lucy02: Floorplan, angled.
Lucy03: Detail: The great room's fireplace alcove. Two comfortable benches provide a cosy fireside seat.
Lucy04: Detail: The study area is raised slightly to provide a better view of the pond.
Lucy05: Detail: dining room. Room for a larger or a second table, buffet, etc.
Lucy06: Detail: bedroom, dressing area. One wall is mirrored to provide greater light and depth. All items are placed to take advantage of windows.
Lucy07: Detail: kitchen. Lots and lots of countertop space and natural light.

The Extras:
You could remodel the study area and turn it into a nursery, or a small bedroom; or possibly put in a staircase and revamp the upper floor for additional space. Alternately, you could re-furnish the kitchen to serve as a dining area, and the dining room might be turned into a small shop of some kind. However, the Lucy was designed as a one- or two-Sim residence, with room for entertaining small, comfortable groups of friends, so it'll take some work.

The Lucy has been set up to try and maximize the environment score, both in layout and furnishings. Comments or suggestions for improvements on this are very welcome.
