This house was built for The Medieval Charter Challenge (MCC) by vllygrl. there are two versions,one more sparsely decorated to be in accordance with the rules for MCC and one slightly more decorated in case you do not play the MCC. There is minimal landscaping in the MCC version. This is to keep the price down for the MCC rules. The more decorated version has some landscaping, rugs and a furnished top floor.

The house was built in a newly generated game that has never had any playable sims. (I have bugfixes in this game, such as no sims loaded and smarter EP check and some more. Although I'm not sure they are necessary to keep lots "clean" in a game that has never been played).

The outside of the house is very much inspired by Arborwatch that you can buy in Chorrol in Oblivion.

According to the MCC challenge there should be a foundation and two levels with three rooms at each level. There is, however, no foundation and three levels instead of two in this house. But the price is approximately correct for a merchant house in the MCC (should be 35 000) and so is the lot size, the total number of rooms and the furnishing. The top floor has not been furnished in the MCC version but once your merchants have enough money they might want to decorate also the third floor for a growing family, generation living or servants. In the more decorated version there is a small furnished room at the top floor. There is enough space for a driveway and a garage (stable) in case your sims will be able to afford a car (horse). Interior pictures were taken with PacMani’s camera mod

You will need to keep the sofa from the Medieval wood set by Raynuss for the other items in the Medieval wood set to show up correctly.

There are CC included that have not been used in the lots but are required for recolors to show up.
  • Master mesh from Buggy Booz’s Nooks and Niches sets (needed for the stairs and arches under stairs to show up correctly)
  • Chimney1 by Sunni at PBK is needed for the chimney recolor to show up

I love your merchant's house! I don't usually play medieval, but I could not resist opening a new neighborhood for your house, and creating for it a merchant family and their maid. For some reason the stairs, windows, chimney and bedding did not show up (or showed up royal blue); but I fixed alternatives, and found your lot very playable. Next I had to set a church next to it, and then a priest's house next to that. Julien Cooke was pleased to assume the role of tonsured, black-habited priest. Having the bit between my teeth, I built a soldier's house, for Matthew Picaso and his wife. I've had your house only a few hours, and already the population of Old England is growing. Soon I must oversee the foundation of Oxford University. So much to do!

Nice work, beryllium! You created a very attractive merchant house with nice attention to detail all within the MCC building guidelines - well done!

Thank you for all your nice comments.

@music2ologist I’m glad that you could find alternatives. Did you put all the files included in your downloads folder? It sounds like the master files for the windows, the chairs and the chimney might be missing. For the stairs to show up correctly the recolor by Almighty hat must also be put in the downloads folder (included in the package).The bedding also must be put in the download folder separately (it will not pack with the lot).

@PlatinumPlumbbob, your MCC houses could probably be useful for other MCC players. I find it very difficult to build CC-free medieval houses but it is definitely easier to download lots without tons of CC.
