Appaloosa Plains - cuz I liked this shot... :P
I found a lot I liked, and of course it was occupied by EA sims! I evicted them, saved the lot to the bin, moved them back in and moved them to another lot, so I could have the one they were in!
Then I leveled their modest one-story home and build a two-story house with lots of space! It's a 4 bedroom, 4 bath house! :P
Complete with rare chameleon!
Bedroom (one of four)
Then I renovated the 1-story barn...into a 2-story barn with hay loft...
...added a small Nectary connecting to one side...
...and placed a wine cellar beneath the barn...
...and voilà...the homestead!
I take the dancing gnomes as a sign that I "done good!" :P
