This is my entry for the Countryside Cottage Shell Challenge by @hiemmanicole, in which she provided the skeleton of the house and I made it into my own. I could not remove any exterior walls, but could add them inside. I could change the fencing and terrain/landscaping as well. 

I started with the exterior, fulfilling a combination of my gingerbread house and dollhouse fantasies. The interior unfolded around teals, oranges and wood grains, bringing together a modern millennial style and rustic cottage. I wanted to blend the tastes of a modern-day Sim with hand-me-down charm.

You can find “Cottage Shell Challenge” on the Sims 4 Gallery under my original Sims forum handle: @teller91.

No CC or mods. Uses items from Cats & Dogs, Tiny Living Stuff, Laundry Day Stuff and the Holiday Celebration Pack.

(P.S. I can’t believe I’ve been a Simmer for 20 years.)
