It has been a while since I had a home I absolutely adore! Ice & I recently created a lovely little farm house to spend some time cuddling as the weather becomes cooler! I have to say I found my match in Ice he loves prims as much as I do and is an amazing landscaper/decorator.  The only issue is that now……I have to share the primmys! >:]

Please come on into our home!

Please note all the photos below have not been edited just cropped, windlight settings from in-world and on a few I did make them a bit lighter so the items could be seen better.

This is our front yard which as you can see has been terraformed to create little rolling hills and we covered the entire plot/ground with various sizes, domes, circles and squares of grass from Kidd Creations. It gave the property a sense of depth and comfy-ness (Yes I made this word up!) The sim is currently textured with Botanicals Medium Manicured Grass MediumTexture.

Items Featured: Tobias Novi Elies Trees ; LISP – Tree Seat Baa&Chirp

Of course we needed a barn! That is Ice’s man cave… it is actually 2 buildings which can be seen in the next 2 photos.  He now has a place to escape when I am rattling around being fussy :P

Items Featured: .: ROXY SHOP:. – Stable (Barn) ; *aG* Wind Mill ; Kidd Creations Grasses ; La’Licious Garden Gnomes & Potting Tray ; *fN* Sunflowers Mesh

It proved to be more difficult than we had anticipated finding a barn we loved.  The Roxy Stable had a lot of great details in it; the only issue we found is that it is no mod so Ice is a wee bit disappointed because he wanted to take the stables out and park his tractor in there. The tractor he is obsessed with…so instead it is parked in the grass! -_-

The ‘man cave’ featured above is his own area I haven’t touched it… too much!

Items Featured: POST: Normanna Hayshed ; Pilot Feeny Food Tray, Morello Work Out Bench & Haywood Pipe Lamp

The infamous tractor…parked in the yard! It has poses so someone can ride in the bucket and the arms extend up and down with a lot of other lovely details it is really well made!

These amazing stone walls line the perimeter of the house and are mod so the color was tinted in various sections to add a little bit more detail! While some might say I was just wasting prims *coughs* I think these few bits along the wall make the place seem more natural!

I was very lucky Ice did not find this home too girly! It was love at first sight on marketplace and I have been dying for a Victorian style home in SL but the choices are very limited.  Most of the Victorian homes in world still have alpha windows :S I did beg and plead with Maxwell Graf of Rustica to make one. =) Maybe he will! *HINT HINT*

As they say…magic happens here lol. Actually, some magic did happen here when we bought this cottage! The room used to end at the seam you can see in the floor about mid-way through the room and there was a railing so the rooms below could be seen.  This original construction of the cottage did not leave us enough space to have a small bath area.  Again my mister fix-it husband modified the house and doubled the size of our bedroom.  We have kept this room very simple.

A close up of the bathroom area which again was all kept very simple because of the close space.  The eaves of the roof make the room feel comfortable without having to stuff prims in every corner!

These are the two rooms below our extended bedroom that used to be visible from the second floor.  The ceiling is now covered with a piece of the bedroom floor instead of vaulted. It really looked cute either way! This is my favorite kitchen – ever.
