Shabby but Charming Home: Download

Residential lot for the town of Elmdale
(Address in Elmdale: Waterfall Lane 1)

This single-story bungalow with a large deck is located in a picturesque place on the river bank near the waterfall, and is suitable for either a single person or a childless couple. The house is quite small, but it has everything needed for living: a hall; a quite spacious eat-in kitchen with a table for eight persons; a living room with a fireplace, an old TV, a stereo, and a lot of greenery; a small, but cozy bedroom which also functions as a study because it has a computer table; a little bathroom equipped with all the necessities, and a large deck perfect for fun and recreation. There is also a dog house hidden behind the bushes at the side of the house, and an open parking spot in the front yard. The house does not have any guest bedrooms, but there is a folding bed right in the hall, where either the owner(s) or the quests who stay for the night can sleep, if necessary. The rooms are decorated in  darkish, tranquil earthy tones. 
The interior is a bit shabby and old: it has definitely seen better days. The TV is very old-fashioned, the woods and fabrics have darkened and faded, but everything is neat, clean, and fully functioning.

Flowery Cottage: Download

Residential lot for the town of Elmdale
(Address in Elmdale: Trade Square 8)

It is a two-storey cottage built and furnished in quite a traditional style with some modern elements mixed in. It can accommodate up to 3 dwellers. Although created specifically for Elmdale, it will fit in most suburban areas. As the cottage is meant for a temperate climate, it features two fireplaces to keep it warm during cold season. It's vibrant red color makes the house stand out against both lush summer greenery and white, snowy winter landscape. The house features a detached garage suitable for two cars, a small, open, modestly decorated front yard, an uncovered front porch and a covered back porch, and quite a large fenced backyard with a hot tub, some lounge chairs, a stereo, a bench, and an outdoor dining area with table for 8 persons, grill and bar, which makes this backyard perfect for both family gatherings and parties with friends.
The entry hall is very small, as well as the half-bath and laundry combo, but the rest of the first floor is occupied by a spacious, open-plan room ideal for socialization. The room is divided into several zones: a small study with a computer and a chess table, a cozy living room with a fireplace and a large plazma TV, and a formal dining room for up to 6 persons. There is also a small breakfast nook for three. The kitchen is separated by two arches, and has enough space for cooking meals and storage.
The second floor has a small hall that functions as a library and recreation room, and is also heated by a fireplace. There are two bedrooms upstairs: one features a double bed and a separate bathroom accessible directly from the bedroom, and another one is equipped with a single bed and is suitable for a child or teen, or maybe even a single adult. There is also another small bathroom on the second floor, accessible from the hall.

12-Minute Cottage

So, I was wondering whether I could build a house very quickly, because usually this process is quite slow and time-consuming. I gave myself 10 minutes to build a small house for a single sim, probably a starter, but could be also a more expensive place to live. I actually exceeded my limit and built this little box on a 15x20 lot within 12 minutes, and it turned out to be not that cheap, but the result is not  bad design-wise... well, at least for a house built in such a short period of time. I plan to use this house somewhere where it will match the surrounding builds. Now it rests in my bin, and is up for download.

Corner Cottage: Download

Residential lot for the town of Elmdale
(Address in Elmdale: Railway Street 3)
This is the 1st residential lot I built for this town. It is for a lonely sim, but can easily be converted into a family house, there is enough room for a family with 2-3 kids there.
The house features a small hall, a half-bathroom+laundry, a living-room and a kitchen=dining roomon the 1st floor, a master bedroom and bathroom, a quest bedroom and bathroom, and a hall on the 2nd floor, a backyard with picnick table, grill and bar, and a garage for two cars.
And it has very few user-made CC items, which might be a big advantage for some CC-avoiding simmers.
