Inventor Creates Eco House!

It's a wonder no one ever thought about it before, maybe it takes a certain kind of mind, but reclusive Uber Inventor Gabriel Tweek has built a home which harnesses the power of the mighty Stoney Falls.

Built on the actual Stoney Falls site, a series of water wheels, bizarre internal venting and ducting and some mysterious fenced off 'machines', together with solar panels and wind turbines creates the illusion that the home is entirely powered by nature.
The home bristles and buzzes with a strange energy and appears to occasionally heave a dusty sigh of relief (via the floor gratings) that it hasn't yet blown itself to smithereens ....

I took a guided tour of the house with the owner and can report that this home is indeed a remarkable feat of engineering. The owner informs me that the house is built and furnished entirely with salvaged materials - which explains some of the decor's more 'interesting' colourations - the current owner does not believe in spending money on co-ordination ... and it shows! The venting and ducting system is particularly intriguing being as each ceiling light is linked to a 'machine' or the water wheels. The heat from the stove, for example, fuels the light above the kitchen table and so on .. Naturally the owner will recalibrate and maintain the System for new owners if the need should arise. There are also adequate fire hoses dotted around the property ...

The ground floor:
An Experimental Vegetable 'Warm House'
Entrance Hall and Recreation Area
Master Bedroom with ensuite bathroom and Laundry facilities
Study with desk, PC, Inventing Station, Chemistry Table, book shelves and drafting table and Emergency Shower for those unfortunate Inventing moments...
Elevator to Upper Floor.

The Upper Floor:
Single Guest Bedroom
Guest Bathroom
Spiral Staircase to Telescope Deck
Elevator to Ground floor
Open Plan living room/dining room and kitchen with walk in pantry.

This highly unusual home is bound to sell fast in the current market as the demand for a more Eco friendly way of life increases. Grab it whilst you can!

This lot is built on the Stoney Falls fishing site and not the Residential site in that spot. Change Fishing site to Residential and plop the house down there. I didn't play with the fish spawners or the metal/gem spawners so they are still on your lot for the taking
