This little lodge belonged to your grandma. It's where she and her beloved wife spent their weekends. Small and cozy and never meant for someone to actually live in. But heck, move a bed to the attic (disassembled of course) and you can live here with your mate as long as you're both able to make it up and down the ladder in one piece, right?



My mom inherited a little house from her mom who inherited.. you get the idea. That house still retains the memories of my ancestors who once built it with their own hands. There's still furniture from back then. Furniture that is actually kinda ugly or at least way too old-fashioned for most to bear but adds to the charm. That's the kinda spirit I tried to catch with this lot. I'll let you judge if I succeeded.

This is great, except ... the stair. I do not think grandmothers should climb stairs like this, even if they can. My grandmother turned a small storage room into her bedroom because she refuses to go upstair (where all the bedrooms are) and prefer to keep her home on ground level only.

I work for a living, but I don't necessarily live for a working.

That seems to be a misunderstanding. When your grandma still used the house, it was just an attic to store stuff. Now that you live there, you use the attic to sleep in.

Yes, your grandma was into girls.

PS: Yes, I'm having a tremendous amount of fun speaking about "your grandma". :D

Good to see lot creations from you Buzzler! Sometimes you'll need to get away with the mundane coding. Like me, I am now playing other games instead of working on my scripts.

Centuries later..... My Nana's house had 3 floors. She mostly used the bottom 2 floors with no trouble at all. The top floor really wasn't used much since her 7 kids grew up and moved out.

Today I decided to build a grandma house, so I'm just now finding your lovely build. I just commented elsewhere in the replies (before I saw this response), that my Nana only used her bottom 2 floors of her house. I use to like sneaking up into the 3rd floor and investigate all the stuff up there. My Nan had no problem using the stairs to the 2nd floor. When all 7 kids were young, they used all 3 floors. Thanks for this lovely build. I brought back sweet memories. Boy do I wish I could go back in time for a visit!
