Western homes

Round 10: Days 46-50

Elias is thrilled with how well his business is doing. The shop is at Level 3 now and gets a good mix of regular customers and newcomers every day.

Nathalie is happy for her husband but wishes he was home a little bit more. She really has her hands full with Ottilie and Leo.

They're both lovely, sweet kids, really.

But when they start tormenting each other, Nathalie feels like she could go crazy with all the giggling, squealing and screaming.

It's a pretty small apartment and that compounds the problem. The four of them can't even eat dinner at the same table at the same time. They're living on top of each other.

The night Nathalie finds a strange, mohawked man smustling in her daughter's bedroom is the last straw. They've saved up over $100,000, more than enough for their own house. Nathalie doesn't want to stay at the apartment complex for any longer.

  • I didn't realise the Drapers had saved up so much money or that Elias's business was so profitable! I'm going to look around for a nice, affordable, modernish house to put downtown for them and they'll move in next round.
  • Elias is also going to hire a manager for his shop. He'll still need to go down there to check everything is running smoothly but at least it won't be so often.


  1. Hahaha, this must be the day of funny updates. The mohawked man smustling in Ottilie's room! LOL

    Hooray for a house! Can't wait to see what you find for them.

  2. OMG, that would be the last straw for me too, a dude Smustling in my kid's room! LOL! (and kind of creepy!)

  3. Yeah, I don't know what's up with this apartment building (or the one Mina's dad lives in, for that matter). Lots of uninvited visitors!
