I live in Virginia (USA), an area rich in heritage and history. And farmhouses. Especially in the rural areas (such as the one I live in), old farmhouses are a dime a dozen. I wanted to recreate that for the Sims, the history combined with just enough modern convenience to make it comfortable.

The rooms are small, I know. This is to preserve the authentic, old farmhouse feel. (Most of these houses were originally hand-made by the very family who was going to live in it, who also gathered their own material and supplied their own labor and everything, so naturally it isn't a monster). This also has the added benefit of making it cheap enough to be a starter home.

You need Seasons and Nightlife (it includes a driveway). Other than that, you should be fine. The absolute worse thing I can think of is that I used a wall or floor that was in one of the other EP's, in which case the game will put another wall up. If you're like me, the first thing you do is go in and put up your own walls and floors anyway, lol. I painted it a nice, earthy yellow because Maxis didn't make any good whites.

Wow, lots of people live in Virginia! ^_^ I'm glad so many people enjoy my creation, there's a real lack of real farmhouses out there.

Thank you very much. This is exactly what I was looking for - a farmhouse built for Seasons that doesn't require Pets. (I had to uninstall Pets to make room for Seasons).

This is really good! I've seen many of these throughout Va, you've really captured the essence of the farmhouse. I'm glad you posted on Sycamores so I could find out about your lots. Keep building!

Thank you! This is just what I was looking for: a small farmhouse that doesn't use a lot of resources.
