This strange thing looks like a cross between a trailer home and a small cottage. But she can be salvaged!
The first thing I thought of when I loaded this lot was retired elderly couple. I could see one of them spending their days fishing while the other took up a hobby like sewing or painting. The only thing I really liked about the lot before was the pond – it’d be nice to have a fresh food source to cut down on the cost of living. Since it was furnished with the Country Collection, I decided to stick to this theme.
I decided to stick with the house’s original foundation because the porch seemed a little too big. I hated the exterior because I usually associate that particular stone set with the Tudor homes from Veronaville. I took a risk in using a lighter color palette, but looking at it I’m not sure if I made the right choice. I was aiming for a neutral color but this sort of feels bland. I didn’t change the landscaping because as it looks decent enough. Hopefully, whoever rents or buys this house has a green thumb.
This floor plan is more traditional. The extra space from the porch allowed for a bigger kitchen, dining room, and living room. I thought about going for the open floor plan, but the home feels cozy.
At this point I was already over the starter home mark so I went ahead and lightly furnished the home with the essentials and a few extras. My favorite part was the entertainment center.
This spacious kitchen has more than enough room for sims to move around as they cook.
In the end, I added two mortgage shrubs to bring the price back down to less than $15,000.
So what do you think, Flip or Flop?
