The huge original structure is still there, but I scrap the original beds and build a proper shack for the Abernathy family to live in. The three of them bunk in the smaller one story shack. (The interior shots show their sleeping arrangements. I do have some double beds that I would love to let Connie and Blake have, but while they count as two beds, only one settler can actually use it. So they get single beds and it’s not my business how they get it on. I did at least put a half wall separator between their ‘room’ and Lucy’s. Because decency and all that)
The larger shack has 6 beds total, 5 currently occupied, making this my largest settlement in this save so far. I have shut the beacon off for now, though.
I moved all the melon plants to the empty plot on the side of the house, to make the space back here more build friendly. One thing that really irks me about this lot (besides the bunch of dead tato plants out front) is the way it slopes out front. There’s tons of space, but it’s a pain to build on. So I generally start out back and then if I run out of space I build out front. But I never use half the space available. I also have a feeling the settlers would be too stupid to find their way across a lot this size. Because they are incredibly stupid like that. Worse than Sims. Which is a really low bar for stupidity, let me tell you.
