Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
History professor, William deKenney, came across this old building while taking a drive with his niece, Carla Azuleja, and after exploring it, realized that he had found an old inn with secret entrance on the creek. Two centuries ago, pirates sailed up the creek and used the inn as a place to store and sell their stolen booty. They were finally defeated, not by the law but by the creek which receded so low that they could no longer navigate it. Professor deKenney has painstakingly restored the inn and will sell it to another sim who loves history. The old inn has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and basement and attic spaces which could be remodeled into living areas.

Very nice design, and I like the story you've created for it. Lots are much more interesting with a history. I also think it's cool that sims can swim in the creek. Good work!

This is a very nice house, once again because I love all of your work. For the life of me I cannot built a house for my sims but yours are not only base game but pretty as well. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments! I got the idea to write stories from itas84 who always writes something hilarious! I'm so glad you like the wallpaper TofuSnorlax. Lots of it is by LadyAngel!

Always lovely and I have always enjoyed the stories you and itas84 write. I'm placing this house right into Veronaville when I boot my game up again.

Thanks for sharing another well built home tricia! I love the unique roof and the overall layout most. As I said, the more you build, the better you get. Thank you for sharing your time and talent with the Sims 2 community!

Also the title and backstory is indeed a great idea! It makes uploading a bit more fun actually!

Thanks again.
