When studying the history of Moonlight Falls, many sims will overlook this house. Unlike many of the other homes in the town, this one is different, behind it's Queen Anne frills lies a home that predates the town. It rememers when a destitute family, cast out from the east came west insearch of hope, which they found in the valley between the mountains, and so the Moon family began to build a cabin to shelter from the fast approaching bitter winter. After winter passed the family began to prosper, soon other families which had been cast out by the east began to move to the valley, building their own cabins and homes. And so the small town of Moonlight Grange was formed. But like any town at the pinnacle of change, this one grew, people from all around traveled to witness the beauty of the waterfalls. Soon cabins were replaced by larger victorian homes, a town hall grew, a school was built, a hospital too. Very soon this little cabin was all that was left of the old town of Moonlight Grange, which was renamed to reflect the new attraction; the waterfall. The moon family had become estranged from the rest of the town which they once created and felt at home in. Then in the 1890s a young female decendant of the family cast a spell, she wanted to remind the town who it had to thank for its existence, suddenly the sad and neglected little cabin grew frills and dormers, and fancy new windows and wood work, as well as a fancy new roof and porch. The garden then became tangled up in the magic and flourished too, just as it had once done when the Moon family first brought their "craft" into the valley, to escape persecution and hangings in the east.
Now in the present day people still overlook its heritage and its beauty, will your sims follow suit.
Moonlight Bungalow currently has 4 double bedrooms, although 1 is currently used as a twin/child's room, there are also 2 bathrooms. Downstairs there's 3 reception rooms as well as a kitchen and a front and back hallway. It wasn't untill I came close to finishing the house in it's current form that I realised I had given it 3 parlours/lounges and no dinning rooms/dinning tables, luckily it wasn't too late to correct my mistake. The house costs 101,796 Simoleons furnished, and 63490 Simoleons un-furnished, it sits on a 30 by 30 lot, currently across the road from the hospital in Moonlight Falls. It is one of my favourite creations to date. The lot is best suited to a corner lot, hence the 2 potential front doors.
It contains 1 piece of CC:
Awesims' Cornices - which I used around the upper part of the turret.
I have also used the CFE cheat, this lot was kind of a practice CFE experiment for a future lot, I would really like to know whether it works well, I've play tested for quite a few sim weeks and have no problems which I haven't been able to fix, and now it should all work perfectly, I hope you all like it as much as I do.
