Anyway, ages ago, I found myself in need of a prefab, and was wandering around looking at these huge, mansion homes. It was incredible. I kept thinking: Who really needs more than one bedroom? Who would pay over $4,000L for a house? Who really needs that much SPACE? I was boggled. I hunted down a post where I briefly touched on it. (Dang, I was really depressed back there in 2008, wasn't I?)
The funny thing is: I seem to have become exactly *that* person. With us wanting to adopt a child, I find that our current house is not as big as I wish it to be. Plus, the longer I have the house, I keep noticing a gap here, a bigger gap there. I like room to grow with, a room where my alt can do her thing, and large, spacious rooms. I have been actively looking for a house like this, and ironically - Could not find a house that I really liked that was big enough. With us wanting a family, obviously we wanted a dedicated kitchen, dining room, living space, bathroom and at least two bedrooms. I had other specifications that needed to be met as well. I wanted the mouldings to be mesh, and not just be a texture, tintable walls, an optional snow add-on, and baked shadows.
I hunted and looked until I came across a particular one from Roost. It was love at first sight for me, and met every prerequisite I had for a home. The downfall: the price, at $5,100L. I TP'ed Jeffry over who gave me the linden to buy it, and told me to just "get it if you like it".
Of course, I hunted around a little bit more, looked through over 75 pages of listings on the marketplace... I'm going to try to break my habit of changing homes so often, so I really needed to LOVE this house, and know that it's the one that I am going to stick with. I did not really want to spend so much $L on it just to find a home I like better in the next couple days.
I couldn't find another that I liked as much as this East Ives house. I bought it, and eventually plan on getting the matching guest house. I put it down on the land, and it was so much bigger than my house I had before, I had to terraform. I eventually just leveled the hill behind the house, so now the back porch has a great view as well.
I love it now even more than I did before I bought it. Right now, it's completely perfect for us, and hopefully, our family. I'm not going to complain about the price either, as it's a very beautifully done house. I have yet to come across any issues with it, unaligned textures, gaps, anything. It's got several different options with it (two attic rooms, vs. one giant attic room) - and... well, it's just freaking gorgeous.

So I got up, I made some more tea, and then I got back into bed in SL lol...
It's always peaceful here at this time in the morning... None of the MC are around, and when Lil is off with Hell in RL Biker mode, I have the sim to myself... All you can hear is the sound of the crickets and the swamp animals... Sometimes it's more peaceful here than at home in RL lol...
My new bed is a HUGE truck from Consignment, perfect for the Swamp, it's already rusty, but least this way I won't worry about it getting wet... It's the perfect size for me and my new plushie... A Tweedle from Katat0nik,... I LOVE HIM SO MUCH and he doesn't steal all the space in the bed, like HellBone does LOL...
Now just one more thing, I know you're probably wondering why the heck I decided to go to bed in my boots... WOULDN'T YOU?? These boots are amazeballs, and I haven't taken them off for anything besides taking a photo LOL... Get your pair from Reign, at this month's Uber, but I warn you, the patterns are so gorgeous, you won't know which to choose... I was sensible at first, I picked the plain black, as black goes with everything pretty much, but I think I may - when I can bring myself to get out of bed - go back to Uber and get some funky patterns on my boots hehe...
