Gwrych Barony 1x2 Merchant Cottage: BLACKSMITH (EPs ONLY)

Blacksmith Cottage INFORMATION:
Lot Size:
1 x 2

Lot Cost:
46,360 Simoleons

2 Bedrooms with 2 beds (Sleeps 3)


1 Bathtub


This 1x2 lot is ideal for a Blacksmith who lives close to the main village. It includes a main house and a small Forge so the Blacksmith can continue his craft as needed!

The interior has an opened living, dining and kitchen areas where your Medieval Sims can cook, eat, read and watch television (crystalball television). There is a Master bedroom (sleeps 2)and a smaller bedroom (sleeps 1) on the lot.

I built the forge using blacksmith items by Phaenoh and Buntah. See BELOW for details under "Important Note". There is also a Crystal Ball computer in the forge.

The exterior has a small Rooftop Porch above the Smithy with an Art Easel and a Chess Barrel. There is a barbecue area in the rear of the house and an Ax Throwing log to the East of the property. To the West of the lot, there is an INVISIBLE DRIVEWAY.


I used the "Blacksmith Crafting Station" by Phaenoh and the "Blacksmith Set" by Buntah in the Blacksmith Cottage.
You MUST download both items for your Smithy to show properly. (See information below the following image)
Since these items cannot be included in downloaded lots, you will need to download them & include them in your Downloads folder for your lot to show properly. You won't need to place them because I already have done so. I removed the objects from the download folder before packaging the lot, but not out of the lot itself. You simply need to download them and put them in your downloads folder.
YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THIS Phaenoh's Blacksmith Crafting Station - You only need the file called "Phaenoh_BlacksmithCrafting.rar".
YOU MUST ALSO DOWNLOAD THIS Buntah's Blacksmith Station - It is the 12th download on the page.

*Ermelind has other roof options available at her site here if you are interested:

*The kitchen appliances are included. In the Gwrych lots, the refrigerator is typically invisible and can be found in a bucket of food under a counter. There is also an invisible dishwasher that is also located under a kitchen counter and accessed by clicking on the bucket of water beneath the counter. The Pot Belly stove by Numenor serves as both stove and trash compactor.

*There are lots of BARRELS in the game thanks to Sophie-David. Some are tables, others chairs and others purely decorative with neat clickable options. Still others are trash barrels. I suggest you click around and discover how things work in the lot for yourself.

*This lot comes with an invisible smoke detector in the necessary rooms. There are also burglar alarms hidden behind certain furniture so they don't stand out. Please note, I have an adjustable height patch (created for my use by Sophie-David) that allowed me to raise and lower the burglar alarm at will. If you move the burglar alarms, you will not be able to get them back as they were.

*Since this is a medieval themed lot, you can download patches that will allow your Simmies to earn physical points for dancing and ax throwing. Links below:

Thanks for All of Them, Stephanie!

MadMike, Walter and Jeannie -

Very beautiful and creative lot. I want to add many thanks for the links to special cc. The roofs are amazing. I use the round roof from Ermelind and didn't know that there were much more creative things to take. I love sites that make wonderful things and don't request unuseful registrations. I'm just a hobby collector after new ideas and not interested to steal anyone. Many thanks.

Thank you for the compliment and you are welcomed about the links. Luckily, Ermelind added a few smaller sizes after a request, so I can create a few poor man's shacks as well! Enjoy the lot and the downloads you get from Ermelind's wonderful site!

This is a fun little home. Every medieval village needs a smithy!

I tend to look at things a bit at a time on sites I visit and today I found a trapdoor object at Ermelinds! Enjoy the downloads at Ermelind's.
