You’ll be in charge of inviting characters as clients and helping them create their dream vacation homes. Choose from a variety of islands, with different terrain and climates and find one that matches your client’s vision. Then start designing and just wait until you see the look on your clients’ faces after you reveal the vacation home decorated just for them.
