Lot - Norwegian Wood Holte

This large farm would be suiting for your extended sim family, and has a lot of space outdoors and indoors, in four different buildings. The yellow building would be perfect for the grandparents, where they could have their privacy, and still be close to their loved ones. The gray building is more modern, and could easily hold a family of four, or more, if you wish. As if this wasn't enough, you could use the extra space in the old barn and the pole granary (stabbur). A hottub in the granary? Art studio in the barn? If you have Pets, maybe knock down the barn door and make it a stable? Or if you want to make a living as a tatooist, designer or stylist and need some space for that? It's up to you!

This building style with a "tun" (different farm buildings surrounding an open area) has roots all the way back to the vikings, and is still quite common in rural areas of Norway. Since farming required substantial physical strength, it was common that the (grand) father at some point left the farm to his son, and with it, also the main house. The older generation moved to a "kårhus" (The pensioners' house), and even if they still helped out with the work of the farm, they had limited influence of the decisionmaking. At least in theory...
