I was having a bad day with my schoolwork. I wanted to come home and torture some sims by forcing them to be hobos and live outside. As I was building however, my natural protective good nature kicked back in and the forgotten dirty bus stop somehow became an adorable eco space of a park. My sim has lived on this lot her entire life, even through two winters and hasn't fared poorly at all. She has a lovely little tent, a garden behind the bus stop (with one of each plant Thriving included in the download), a violin to Play for Tips, and a nice little public bath house with an outdoor shower and an AC unit for extreme weather. (It saved her life more than once.) I personally recommend Digging for Treasure as a means of making money. Oh, did I mention she has never held a job and will never need one? Live off the land, it provides!

The natural elements truly are the focus of this lot. The large twisted trees add character and the bird and ladybug houses add whimsy. The garden is Thriving, and with some help from CC; boots, crates, a watering can, and a shovel, accompany the compost bin (which is about half full to get you started). A cute little garden gnome hidden in the weeds stands guard over the mail box as well. The bus stop itself is a cute little 1x3 open shack with large scale advertising posters on both sides. The 1x1 lot is littered with shrubs. Lightning bug jars and paper lanterns hung from the trees provide an almost other worldly light at night.

The bath house is barely large enough for the toilet and a sink. Outside is an open shower shaded by vines growing over the railing. Around the side of the bath house are shelves that have started collecting various bits and bobs that have been collected or dug up. No grill was provided because without a full sized fridge, it wasn't being used. Sims living on this lot might consider going vegan.

I hope you enjoy this lot as much as I have!

P.S. It's so good to finally have time again to finish up projects and upload them for you all. I've missed reading all your comments!
