Lombard's Cabin (starter)

Many sims often thought Old Ted Lombard was a sandwich short of a picnic so when he bought himself a derelict plot of land filled with other sims unwanted junk and dying tree's nobody was surprised.

Ted swore he would build himself the finest home the town had ever seen. Most sims thought Ted a joke but he set out to prove them wrong and started work, cutting and shaping tree's and repairing the old broken down furnishings people had dumped in the wasteland he would one day call home.

The townspeople stood in awe as they stood by and saw the beautiful pond he had made and the amazing greenery which now stood were once only broken down trees had existed. The solid bridge that crossed the pond gave off a wonderful smell of freshly cut wood and the flowers surrounding the area gave off an array of colour (all though many sim's noticed missing plans from there own gardens)

Poor Teddy spent so much time and lumber on that bridge he soon found himself running low on supplies so the cabin was not as grand as he first would have liked. To recover the old abandoned sofa he had to use the material from his tent.

finding wood was running low he pulled up the saplings to make himself a fine bed frame and used the rest of the tent for bedding

Sim's were impressed the broken down wasteland had been re-born into a beautiful home but were had Teddy Lombard gone???
Had all that time alone sent him over the edge?
Some say a werewolf got him and dragged him off others say he was turned in a toad by the witch who owed the Forrest next door I guess we will never know ...

Although!! the crazy old man at the bus station looks awfully familiar.

Technical stuff:
Lots size: 15x20
price 16.477 furnished
price 14.412 unfurnished

Ever since i learned how to make bridges i have been looking for an excuse to build one then i happenstanced upon a picture of an interesting looking cabin and wondered if it was possible to make.
I wanted this lot to be a starter lot so it isn't overly decorated but the perfect starts for your outdoor loving sims to fish paint or just relax, will fit 2 sims without clashing and looks nice in game,
as you can see from the pictures there is still some of the original decking under the cabin but it wouldn't let me remove that i changed a few things slightly from the original to have it all fit together but tried to keep it as true to form as i could.
I built this making sure to use only base game items..

Custom Content.

Lovely! And the decking underneath is an easy fix, something is occupying those tiles. Some ceiling lights, curtains, windows, wall objects and im sure some other stuff just gott look.
Great job on it though really is lovely starter.

What a great story! I'm intrugued. What DID happen to old Teddy Lombard? Did you plan an ending for this story? Is Teddy going to return, and build another, more lavish home? Anyway, I love this house. And, the bridge over the pond, is lovely. It reminds of Asian, Meditation Gardens. I can't wait to add this lot to my game. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Your right SnprTw proof reading is a wonderful thing but Dyslexia can sometimes cause issues.
sometimes when you believe something to be the best that you can get it. negative disparaging and sarcastic remarks can make you feel stupid.

thank you for your feedback tho.
