I've always wanted to do a big ole cliche farm, but the lack of farm animals kinda ruins it. Until I decided to make dog ranches! Woo!
This baby sleeps six dogs if you are so inclined. For people there are two large bedrooms and two small bedrooms (one is furnished as an office)



It's an earthy, homey place with a little clutter here and there.



But...
You know how if you live in the same place for a long time,
and hit a few yard sales, and pick up some souvenirs while you're travelling, and inherit grandma's antique furniture, and do some bargain hunting...

Then all of a sudden you turn around and your house has a cool hundred grand worth of knick-knacks and no room to walk?




It could happen to anyone.

Options
There are two versions of this lot available: "Tidy" normal version, and the much more expensive and cramped, but still fully functional "Cluttered" version full of books, trinkets, pottery, treasure, all the cute end tables, books and more books
(the outdoor areas are mostly unchanged, but Cluttered has a few more plants to make it look overgrown)

Driveway
There is a driveway extension in the barn and if you put a car there you can use it just like normal, however their will be no animation--the car will just teleport in and out of the garage. You could put a regular driveway over the dirt road so the car will be animated, but the lot won't look as good. Or you could use Sophie-David's Invisible Driveway and have the best of both worlds. (This is just a suggestion, it is neither included nor required, though I imagine most of you already have it)

Just a few notes
- The lot edges are flat
- Constrainfloorelevation false was...actually not used for once. It's a miracle!
- Moveobjects was used constantly and many, many things aren't snapped to grid, but the furniture works. Except in Cluttered: the mirrors at the top of the stairs and the obviously not-for-use chairs in the barn loft.
- There is a phone
- The burglar alarm is behind the fridge
- There is a fire alarm hidden in the chimney in the kitchen, and there are sprinklers in the walls above the fireplaces

A copy of the lots were play tested, but please message me if you run into any problems

Reccomended Mods
- Rugs - zMOG!! Off Grid!! by HugeLunatic --You don't need it, but it's awesome, and if you don't have it some of the rugs will look funky until you pick them up and put them on grid
- Water Inaccesible Flowers by dickhurt --If you don't want it you could of course just delete any problem flowers you run across.
- Trim Inaccessible Bushes by Cyjon --Likewise for bushes

These links are what I used to make Maxis items that normally aren't buyable show up in the catalog for purchase, you don't need the download for them to appear when you load the lot, they are already in the game.
