Yes it’s the Little Cottage Challenge again but with a little twist. An elderly, recently widowed, lady Mavis, who has a cat, Mr Pickles, as a pet, just bought an old English Cottage.

A plaque over the doorway reads “1829″, the year this house was built. It has stood the test of time, but its age is evident in the crumbling exterior brickwork, generously painted many times over the years by various occupants. Inside, it is a different story. Peeling wallpaper, remnants of a 70′s kitchen, and a fireplace all but forgotten under all that dust is what remains of this place which hasn’t seen a Sim for many years.

To make the cottage a liveable home for Mavis and Mr Pickles it needs renovation and re-decoration. Mavis decided to stay with the English Country Cottage Style and she needs your help with the task.

The Task:

Download or re-create the Cottage aswell as Mavis and Mr Pickles (See Notes below) Then Redecorate / Renovate the cottage in the Country: English Cottage Style. (See notes below)
The main task is Interior Decoration and to have Mavis and Mr Pickles move in. However a bit of renovation on the exterior will do no harm and will give the cottage a more appealing look.

The Rules

• Max 10 pictures per entry. You may link to more in an album
• Pictures may be no more than 800 pixel wide
• You may enter 3 times
• At least One of your pictures must show Mavis and Mr Pickels
• You are not allowed to remove:
o Existing windows and doors
o Walls (Interior or Exterior)
• You are allowed to:
o Add Windows and doors
o Change the stairs
o To replace the windows with other windows, but if it's a 1 tile window it must remain a 1 tile window. You may also replace any 2 adjacent (side by side) 1 tile windows with a 2 tile window.
o Renovate the exterior
• You may remove and/or replace the fence and other outdoor items
• Landscape the garden if you wish but it’s not necessary

This is a challenge not a contest - Have fun! Smile

I would say you can either get a CC pet, there are a few around or don't worry about the picture with the cat. Just show us Mavis Smile

We can pretend the kitty is hiding giggle

There is a cat here http://helen-sims.blogspot.com/2010/07/b...st_26.html I am sure there are others too if you wanted to include one in the pic.

tiki5872 Yes you may replace the windows with other windows but if it's a 1 tile window it must remain a 1 tile window. You may also replace any 2 adjacent (side by side) 1 tile windows with a 2 tile window.
