House 003 Chapter 2
When we last left off with Wade he had just moved Colton into the house… err grassy lot. I thought it was hilarious that Colton stood for hours talking on the phone next to the stinky pee bush.
Wade finally saved enough to travel to Sylvan Glade. He had to land at his old house and when he did he gave his dad a hug. I sure do miss everyone from house 002!
The entrance wasn’t open. I guess Mindy hadn’t gone again after the missing hermit/new save file incident. Awe look at house 002 in the background. *sniff*
And thus began the grinding of fishing for hours on end.
He had perfect needs when he got there and I waited until he was too uncomfortable to fish anymore to let him use a moodlet solver potion. Then he started up again until his needs were terrible and he went home.
Just like in house 002 I would rather wait to buy the stuff I plan to actually use in the house instead of buying the cheap stuff first then selling it. So they didn’t get a stove yet even though they could afford the cheap one. Plus, I wanted that $1,000 in reserve.
Mindy aged to elder and I wanted to see her so when she invited Wade to a party at the ruins he went. I was also hoping maybe he’d meet a special someone there but no luck.
After they got home from the party I did a bit of building and buying figuring that he’d make some money in the morning off of all the gathering to make up for it.
He did and off he went to Sylvan Glade again while Colton worked.
He did really well!
All that fishing allowed him to add a bit more to the house. I have no idea why Colton is always hanging out in the bathroom on his phone. His needs end up being really good while Wade has spent the day at Sylvan Glade.
When I got the notification that it was almost Colton’s birthday I realized that I needed to get Wade working on finding himself a mate quick. I’d been looking in the neighborhood at all the sims walking by whenever he was home but it’s almost always his family. So he threw a dance party. EVERYONE there is his family! So I got to thinking, I have a mod called “fewer random townies on community lots”. The only thing I can think of is it makes sims that he has a relationship with turn up more often, because his is the only house marked as played. I got it for my rotation so it would be my rotation families that showed up… anyway, I took it out.
They get a stove just in time for Colton to age to adult.
Then the poor thing gets to be eaten by the cowplant. Essence of happiness, check. I’m thinking I need to fence the cowplant in and put a locked gate so nobody accidentally dies.
Alright, so at this point I was starting to panic. Wade had 10 days until aging to adult and he didn’t even have one just in case person to marry. I decided to have another dance party at the Von Haunte Estate this time and paused the game… several hours later I got back to it and unpaused it to see this beauty appear.
Her name is Fernanda. She’s good, materialistic and a foodie. She’s also level 6 of the doctor career. Most importantly she’s young adult and single with no kids! Score.
They talked until they became friends then Wade tried a flirt. She went for it!
A bold pickup line…
…and a proposal!
A quick change of clothes and they headed down to the archway where his grandpa’s got married.
Were you just carrying that ring around just in case?
Yay! The second they were married the dance party was over so it took however long they last to meet, become friends and get their romance bar up to proposal level.
Opps. Sorry Colton.
This is how I found them when they returned to the house. I’m sure they’ll not be able to keep their hands off each other in true Rover style.
They try for a baby. (Umm yea I gotta give her a makeover, glasses in bed?)
And the heir for house 004 is on it’s way! I still didn’t have the pregnancy pack for MC Command Center in so I have no idea what she’s having. I’m thinking of not looking and letting it be a surprise! I put it back in though so that it can hopefully hook up his sister and cousins to carry on the house 001 and 002 families.

This chapter was about 6 or so days. A lot of that time was spent in Sylvan Glade.
