Cottage BonneTerre


M&M 002

From the same creators that brought you the BeauRoche, that I blogged back in April, M&M Creations now bring you Cottage BonneTerre, which means “Good Soil”.  The creator writes… “We all know those cute little creatures with big flat feet who have great adventures all over the fantasy world. They live in even so cute homes with round doors and a lot of wood from the forest.

Personally, I thought of the movie Shrek and his little home that he had to bend down to get into.  M&M Creations has now made this cottage for big creatures. No need for bending.  The home is dug into a grassy hill with flowers and to help visualize the concept I did some landscaping using the Sassafras and Aspen trees by Little Branch, available now at ongoing events.  Both trees are seasonal trees that on touch change to the season you want. I also used a backyard swamp by TLC, modding the grass parts of it the same as the cottage so that they blended together and then used wild grass from Skye.

The whole process for the cottage took three month from inspiration to modeling to completion.  Below the credits I have included some additional details from the creator on the cottage.

  1. As a Hobbit fan, I fully appreciate this enchanting build! Good land impact considering you get all the landscaping with it and could just set it into a sim without any further fiddling, no problem.
