Hi all

This simple home has all the basics and ensuites to most bedrooms.
Country and rustic charms will sooth the muscles and promte fond nostalgia

This 3x3 lot is at a reasonable $65,000, a small price to pay for your wellbeing.

Lastly a big thank you to all creators of the custom content below, fantastic work as usual

I love the roofline. It's very, very close to some American barn types I've seen and banged my head on my desk trying to re-create.

Lovely! How did you get that beatiful roof line? :O
Test Subject
#11 Old 13th Apr 2007 at 1:33 AM
how did you make the roof? The angled roof, how did you get it to be as tall as a regular wall? I hope that makes sense. Because the angle wall in game is only half the size so it never looks right when trying to make a barn.

This is a great house, a real masterpiece, but for some reason it doesn't appear in my game. I tried three times, but nothing. I have all expansion and stuff packs. I wanted to ask, if it is only my problem or does this happen to anyone else?

I would really love to have this house in my game. Thank you for creating this fabulous house!

have you re-downloaded the file as it may have corrupted?
have you extracted the file and run it as so it can teleport itself into the right file?
i downloaded it myself to see if its the file and it seems to be working ok
let me know what progress you make

I read all the comments you leave, even if they are made a year later, thank you all:)

Any lot building requests are considered, just pm me:)

I love the architecture, especially the roof of this house! Would you consider uploading an unfurnished version of it?
When going into the lot and replacing and recolouring some objects, it crashed my game. I'm thinking it might be a custom content item.

Let me know if you use any of my recolors in a story, video, etc. I'd like to see it!
