It's a rainy morning, but Miranda, Stevie and Gary are in the best of moods. They have bought the old farmhouse and they are moving in!
Image

The building is beautiful, but it's equipped only with the barest necessities.
Image

Image

Miranda goes out to see the view from the back door.
Image

All the land from here to the river belongs to them now! There is plenty of room for an orchard, a vineyard, a greenhouse and anything else they might wish for.

They will have to work hard to achieve this, though. After buying the house they only have 500 simoleons left, and there will soon be bills to be paid! There is nothing on the upper floor of the house but beds and lamps (the house is copied from Champs Les Sims; the original made no use of the upper floor at all).
Image

Also, I have given all three some skill points in several basic skills using Master Controller, but they will have to learn the skills relevant for their goals from zero: gardening and nectar-making for Miranda, gardening and consignment for Stevie, and gardening and cooking for Gary. It's just more interesting to play that way!

So, the first thing they do is go to the library and read skill books: Miranda and Stevie learn gardening, and Gary learns cooking.

Image

Gary immediately applies for a job at the Bistro.

They go home, and while Gary is preparing supper...
Image

...Miranda and Stevie plant the seeds they got for learning the gardening skill.
Image

Image

They dine together, feeling sleepy. Working in the fresh air makes you tired!
Image

"Yes, Mum, we've settled in, thank you. No, I'm not engaged yet. Good night!"

By the morning the garden has sprouted little plants.
Image

"Miranda, I apologise for coming down to breakfast shirtless. It's just a habit I got from living alone."
"Yes please thank you very much! Um... I mean, it's all right, I don't mind, Gary."
Image

Miranda and Gary water the flowers...
Image

... and Gary leaves for his first day of work as a kitchen scullion.
Image

Stevie and Miranda spend the afternoon at the nectary: Stevie picks fruit, and Miranda makes a batch of nectar. A nectar-making machine costs 1500 simoleons, so they will have to triple their funds before they buy one of their own!

ZeeGee, is one of my pictures showing as something other than a sims 3 screenshot for you? If it is, it's an annoying tinypic glitch: sometimes two pictures by different users get the same url. They all look normal to me, but if you tell me which one is showing up wrong I'll reupload it as soon as I'm able to!

Best line ever "Yes please thank you very much! Um... I mean, it's all right, I don't mind, Gary." I mean, same, girl, same. Except I'll just stop at "thank-you very much" lol.

I'm glad Gary was on board with the whole idea though, and I can't wait to see them build up the farmhouse, looks like they're off to a great start already.
