It' s small- she just moved in. Inside's a 'kitchen' with a two-square sized table that has a microwave and coffee maker on it. A fridge containing everything she owns sits next to them. Also present is a legit famous painting on that invisible spot of the south wall, and a modern wood stool, clock, and wallpaper. She has yet to find the floor and currently uses the neutral floor. All items are present in my in-game house, which is much bigger and thus contains more items.
