Your newest client is the most unusual yet. From head to toe, he is dressed as if he stepped from the pages of a history book. His outfit would have been the height of fashion 80 to 150 years ago The jacket, shirt, tie, pants and shoes look new and well-made, not old. This is clearly not a costume.
You show no surprise, though you are curious. “Hello, sir. How can I help you?”
“The name’s Wells, Herbert George Wells. I was testing my new time machine and found myself stranded here,” he says.
“Oh! Then the time machine is real?” you blurt out.
He gives you an affronted look. “Of course it is. Now then, it will take me some time to fix the machine and get home. In the meantime, I need a house. One that reminds me of my own time. I have made the acquaintance of a lovely young woman who calls herself a student of history. In the event I choose to remain here, we will require extra bedrooms for a family. A minimum of three in total.”
You listen closely, though you are still not convinced this isn’t some elaborate prank or the result of some mental illness which has made your client believe he is in fact H.G. Wells. For now, you’ll treat him like any other client. “I would like to help you. Do you have a budget?”
To your surprise, Wells nods. “My… girlfriend… has offered to fund this project. We have $186,600 available, will that be enough?”
“More than enough. You want a faithful recreation of a home from your time period?”
“Yes. Oh, I have no objection to modern technology, and naturally, electricity and plumbing are a must.”
“Naturally,” You agree. “Do you have a color preference?”
“I prefer to avoid pastels, but otherwise, I will leave the choice of appropriate colors in your hands.”
“Thank you for your trust. The house will be ready in a month. Ah, one other thing, how can I contact you?”
“Do not concern yourself, I will come to you in one month’s time.”
Build a house in a style that would have been popular at any point in H.G. Wells’ lifetime.
Decorate the interior as closely as you can to what would have been period-appropriate. Mr. Wells will forgive any necessary upgrades, such as modern kitchen appliances.
The house must have at least three bedrooms and one bath.
Landscaping should match the style of the house.
Include any additional rooms or spaces you fill will fit and which the budget allows.
Lot size: 30x20 or larger.
