Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Description:
The previous tenant, known in the area as 'Fast Jake', left rather suddenly, a year or so ago. Since then, his charming little 'vacation' home has stood empty.

Landscaping would increase the investment value of the property. (So would demolition, but hey!) There may not be a lot of space inside, but the roof lookout makes a great entertaining area, and the shaded side verandah is cool for siesta time.

Basic amenities are provided, and the rent is low. There is a double bedroom, bathroom, dinette kitchen and a carpeted living room. The agent guarantees there are no counterfeit bills under the bed, and probably no corpses under the floor.

Don't worry, Fast Jake hasn't been seen around here since the bust...

Notes for Players:
- The house has been playtested briefly. New furniture is as shown. Phone, bookshelf and fire alarm are included for your lucky starting sims.
- The verandah roof was made with the CFE cheat, and cannot be altered or removed without effort.
- I used one custom terrain paint on the lot, but another one (slate pavers) has attached itself. I can't delete it without losing the rocks I painted so carefully, so you get both. Hopefully this will ensure the rocks come through correctly - there's a basegame bug that sometimes deletes terrains. Annoying, but true.

Have fun hiding out!

This house has so much character! I love the dented tin roofing and the parched earth – wonderfully well done

:::downloads and goes off to search for some tumble weeds:::

This is so cool - or maybe I should say hot. Really well done, thanks.
Tumble weeds would be great, yeah.

Love the place - and the story, and I have just the sim for it! Thanks.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

i love it! i can't resist downloading......even though i REALLY don't have the room to do so! .....my game is soooooo slow from all my downloading......it's like i have a disease and this house is the perfect vaccine!

Sims, like life, is very unpredictable. One minute you're eating four day old pizza, and then the repo-man steals your only sofa and you're in tears. ...then the food poison kicks in.

Love it, especially the dents in the roof and the name. I like lots with flavor and this one's plenty caliente.

This house compared with most of the sim houses on the internet is a great example of how different our sims' homes can be. The whole look and feel of this lot is amazing and I already know which one of my simmies would enjoy a new life in this house. Thanks a ton!

Someone (I think Macarossi) posted some nice new desert plants recently - I have them, but didn't include them to keep the CC to a minimum. Happy decorating!

This house seems to be a very romantic getaway for sims with not so many simoleons in their pockets, or for other sims who love the contrast with their day to day living. Absolutely gorgeous!
