~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ the original upload post follows below ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This was once a fruit-packer warehouse in Simcotte (a small town just West of Clermont on the outskirts of Orlando.) Cat saw it one day as she was traveling through Simtral Florida, and knew she had to save it somehow. After inquiring at the local Post Office for any information about the current owners - she finally traced it down to the long defunct Pre-Peeled Fruit Factory. [I'm not makin' this stuff up, folks! There really was a "Pre-Peeled" Fruit place - I always wondered how the fruit grew without any skin? Maybe that's why it's been abandoned for 20+ years? Uh huh...]

Anyway - after taking the structure all the way back to the studs, Cat renovated the space into a one bedroom, one and a half bathroom Modern Duplex.

Each apartment has three levels: The main living level with a Gourmet kitchen and counter bar, living area with TV, and a small half bathroom.

The lower level is the bedroom and main bathroom. And, the upper level - loft style - includes a computer, piano, and an easel.

Welcome home.

A side-note for interested investors -
I made this lot with the aide of Numenor's AGS (what a wonderful tool!) It needs all EPs/SPs installed in order to work properly. I used minimal custom content. Most of which you probably already have, especially if you've used any of my other lots.

You will also need at least one recolor of Jonesi's Bed Blanket - I recommend these: Linen Solids by Amythestfenix @ S2A
And, for the windows, you'll need: Top Artefact by SimtopiX @ MTS2
Tall Embrasure Pair by SimtopiX @ MTS2
and the round window from Helios Sectional Set by Windkeeper @ TSR

If you don't have these already, I would strongly suggest getting them, or your alarms will be visible and ugly:
- Ceiling Light FIX by Menaceman44 @ MTS2
- Invisiblesmokealarm by PFfish @ MTS2
- Invisibleburglaralarm by pfish @ MTS2
