Okay, I went through 16 pages of MOD requests to see if anyone had previously mentioned the same material.  I saw some generic requests that fall into the same sort of thought but nothing specific, so here goes my ideas.

 

When rebuilding a settlement and this is aimed mostly at Sanctuary Hills; there are a lot of ...hammering and fixing animations for the original group to be keeping themselves occupied (okay, I admit, its mostly Sturges, but the others get into the act from time to time too).  But..nothing really happens in the way of home improvement.  Now I know there are mods out already to provide a bit of an.."Insta-Fix' to many of the buildings in Sanctuary Hills but I personally would have loved to patch those holes myself.  For the windows, could a mod be made to let the player 'frame' a window and add shutters?  I don't know about the rest of you but when a rad-storm hits, and I am inside, I want the windows and doors shut !!!   Also since many of the holes in the walls are of a fairly consistent size, can the mod have a way for the player to patch those?  Seems to be a simple ..select the proper shape... sort of thing.  I'm guessing 3-4 shape options in this category (in 2-3 categories per shape.  One would be a wooden fix, one would be a metal fix, and one would be like a drywall sort of masonry patch); so a total of maybe twelve different home remedy patches to satisfy all tastes would fix most of the holes in the walls and make it seem very immersive as part of a repair plan for turning Sanctuary hills into a proper settlement.

 

But the shutters, yes definitely, I would love to see a MOD that creates shutters to be added.  Best of all worlds would be shutters with an option to be closed or opened on sunny days.  I would think creating shutters would be a primary first step...waaaay ahead of the option to put in glass windows.

 

Also, I would like to see Butter churns.  We can have brahmin, we can conceivably have brahmin milk, so why not see some butter churns around a settlement?

 

Next, I have seen a few but I think it should be part of a basic settlement ideas package.  GUNRACKS!  Since nearly everybody carries some form of gun weapon, its only logical that a settler would feel peace of mind only when they could sleep with their gun close to grab.  A Gunrack above each bed should be the standard for "fine living"...lol

 

Finally, outhouses.  The primitive backwater solution to a lack of indoor plumbing.  The noble (and stiinky) OUTHOUSE!  I think I have seen one while wandering through Fallout 4 and I thought,  yep.... surprised I don't see more of these.  But honestly. no civilised settlement should be without an outhouse if they lack sewer capabilities.

 

I hope that all reading this can find support for these ideas.    Thanks for reading :)

Also since many of the holes in the walls are of a fairly consistent size, can the mod have a way for the player to patch those?

 

Have a look at Window Floor and Roof Boards.

Hey !  That's right along the idea I was envisioning, although I was hoping for more of a "Make the Settlement more of a homestead look" rather than "buttoning the houses up to bring them up to Crack Junkie Building Codes standards :), but yeah....that is the sort of patch work repairs I was hoping for, although I was hoping for something slightly more , elegant...lol.
