    ENTRY DETAILS: I imagined a tuscan-style farmhouse for the Grangers, with plenty of free space around the estate for the kids to explore. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, one with its own entrance from the outside. This could be the guest room for now, or if all the bedrooms are needed later, it could be the master bedroom, or even later it could be that of their biggest, already independent child. They want to keep everything as simple as possible to conserve energy, so the house only has one TV and one computer, and the garden has its own well with clean fresh water.

    @Abelhinha35 or anyone else who can tell me, where or which pack/kit/etc can I find the water wheel in please? Thanks!
  • Archer_GirlArcher_Girl Posts: 216 Member
    @iampes23 - I did a search and looks like it's with the Cottage pack.

    Thanks! I guess I just missed it somehow. :D
  • abelhinha35abelhinha35 Posts: 2,220 Member
    @iampes23 Sorry for the late response :) It is debug in the Cottage Livin pack <3

    @abelhinha35 Thanks for the response! Unfortunately I have spent several hours peering through the cottage and all of the debug with no success finding the water wheel. I had downloaded the lot and placed it, hoping the name might shed some light on how to find it. Maybe it is a glitch in my game or something I missed out on? So very disappointed!

    But thanks for the help abelhinha35 and Archer_Girl!

  • abelhinha35abelhinha35 Posts: 2,220 Member
    Sorry @iampes23, it is actually in "Live edit" and it is called [DEBUG] landmarkEP11waterWheelLarge01, you will find both of them there. :)

    @iampes23 - OH NO! I feel so badly for providing inaccurate info. I'm so sorry!

    @abelhinha35 - thank you for the update....one more question though....even though it's a live edit item, is it still associated with the cottage pack? I don't have cottage pack and it doesn't appear to be in my live edit. TY!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    I have chosen to build William and Amelia a traditional farmhouse style home. I have elevated the house and built a retaining wall around the home. With plenty of rain in the area and a pond on the property we would hate to ever see the home flood. As mentioned, there is a pond on the property; this offers fresh water as well as a place for William to fish. There is an animal shed and chicken coop, a barn for storage and also a place where Amelia can work on some crafting items. There is a greenhouse and a garden with bees for William to grow and study plants, as well as a flower arranging table if they decide to get into that as well. The home is not off grid but it is designed in a way that they can choose that option if living expenses get too high (I know that the family had hoped to save money but property taxes are quite expensive when you have a large area of land). The home has an open concept living space, a large country kitchen with a walk in pantry to store their canning and simple living food items. It has a music room, crafting office for Amelia, 3 bathrooms, as well as 3 bedrooms on the second level for the family.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I tried placing this home on a number of different lots in various sizes. 64 X 64 lot was too large and 40 x 30 was too small. I didn't care for the locations of the 40 X 40 lots in my game and so I figured out that the 50 X 50 lot was perfect and despite the land costing $25K and taking so much of the budget, I still feel it was a good choice and worth the cost. The appearance of a dirt road in front of the farm allows a fairly seamless transition from the neighborhood into the lot. The surrounding trees and nearby bayou add to the aesthetic of a working farm very well. This is the second farm in a row I've created for BnS, so I can't lie, I am really ready to move on. But I still enjoyed creating this and it feels close to my heart because I grew up in a rural area of Kentucky and near the Kentucky River and our house was located on the edge of the neighbor's dairy farm. I spent a lot of time in my dad's vegetable garden and a lot of time sitting on the big, shaded porches of relative's and neighbor's homes and listening to "the grown folks visit." When I was in middle school I spent my Christmas breaks working in a tobacco stripping room to earn money to buy Barbie dolls. I'm very familiar with farm life and miss those relatives with those big houses and farms that we spent time on.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This old Carriage house overlooking Brindleton Bay became a perfect place for Karl to renovate for the Grangers to create a new life in the Country. The lower floor of the carriage house has been turned into a production floor that turns their produce into Fizz and Kombucha, taking advantage of Williams Scientist background. Also on the lower floor is a shop for selling both the Produce, Fizz Drinks, and Amelia's Craft creations. Behind the shop is the office for both Amelia and William to work, and meet clients. Upstairs boasts a spacious home for the Grangers, and their two Kids, Rhys and Marley. A large kitchen, flows into a Dining space, that flows into a living space. Marley
    s bedroom is located near the front door, and an extra bedroom turned craft room for Amelia. All the other bedrooms are located on the other half of the home, with a large master wing. a large upper deck/balcony gives the Grangers some personal outdoor space, while also giving a great view of the farm and scenery. A large field for growing plants, and an orchard off to the side of the home. a small pond for fishing can be found in the corner of the lot, and a hidden playground for the kids.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Based off farms on the west coast this home has a little of everything PLUS all the farm living you could wish for. Chickens, cows, llamas, and pond fish dot this gem. It's also off the grid serviceable with water cultivation and eco-living amenities. There's a huge barn and fun activities like horseshoes and fishing. The home is landscaped with nature in mind and cows are at the heart of the decor of the home.

A garden area to grow crops, a chicken coop and animal shed to have all the chickens and farm animals you can handle. There is a nice pond in the back for Mr. Granger to go fishing in. It also has 2 solar panels and a wind turbine to be eco friendly as well as a recycler. Art work by #Nessiesim, #mnewi1103, AlJay2000.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I went completely off the rails with this one. I built a modern farmhouse on a 64x64 lot, a full working farm with tons of space for produce, livestock, chickens and pets. The children have plenty to do without ever touching any electronics. This home has room to grow, If the family has more children they can start using the attic as living space.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I built the farmhouse earlier in the month and then let it sit until yesterday when I came back and did the landscaping. I ended up with more money left over than I was expecting - evidentially the base game rocks no longer cost an arm and a leg to purchase - and decided to leave it as I felt the build was finished.
