Built in the 18th Century, this cottage was "renovated" in 1950 to add a lean-to bathroom and some fitted kitchen units. After being occupied by squatters, it has been left empty for a couple of years waiting for a buyer.

Although only costing £27,666 to buy, your buyers will also need some spare cash to do the place up. The first priority is to get rid of the trash compactor that was left in the garden because my test family mother was so upset by the state of the place she stood in front of it and died a day later still holding her empty TV dinner tray and stamping her feet. Actually she didn't know it was still in working order or she could have had it moved to under one of her units and used it there.

Very cute, Inge, nice work!

Looks like a few walls are bare- d'oh! Like you said, it's a fixer-upper.

Fantastic! It will be good for my sims that are ready to move out of their starter homes. DIY!

Nigel you're talking about the extension? Well it wasn't made in stone like the rest of the cottage, as it was a 1950 addition. It's just blocks and painted cement render. If it was my house I would either rebuild that extension in matching materials, or I would knock it down altogether and make the 2nd bedroom into a luxury bathroom, and use it as a house for just a couple or single person.

Unfortunately I didn't leave room for a drive. I underestimated the turning length needed. I might try building this again with the cottage nearer the right-hand wall so the drive can go on the left.

I thought that the former owner got fed up with the reno work and left the walls to the extension bare!

Thanks for sharing your super sims stuff, Inge. "I" can't wait to move in.

This is pretty cool, from the looks of it from the outside there, it looks like it'd make a great house for like, ghost and such. Anyways, very nice work here.
