Now, as some of you know, I am considering hiring a builder to build a store for Imperial Elegance. Well, I took a fly around the various Azure commercial sims, to see if any prefabs catch my eye - before I commit to hiring someone. I visited all kinds of places, but somehow ended back up at Barnesworth. I had the sudden brainstorm: Why can't I use a prefabricated home? I don't need to have an actual "store", right? So, I toured around, looking at his various prefabs.... and stopped when I seen this one.


I was suddenly hit with an idea to make this work. I think this building really fits the image I wanted to go for: elegant, inviting, with beautiful, complimenting colors. It looked giant when I bought it, but when I got it on the land, I came to realize - it was considerably smaller than my current store. As of now, all my poses will fit - but as IE grows, I have no clue how I would fit more in. but still, I think things will work out somehow.


Also - this is two stories. In my land covenant, it forbids 2 story buildings. However, as I flew around Glenn, and all the surrounding sims, I seen tons and tons of 2 story buildings. So, being the rebel that I am - will follow suit and join everyone else.


And I've talked about this before, but I believe I will be rotating the entire store to face the Nicole sim, which is entirely empty, aside from a few linden trees. The current land across from IE is up for sale, and I don't really think I want to see what kind of monstrosity will be popping up once its sold.
