IF only I knew where to start...

Please recommend some interactive fiction with published source code (Inform 7) that is good for showing a beginner IF author best practice.

I'm especially interested in seeing very good games that are easy for a beginner to emulate. To my mind this would involve limited creation of new rules/actions etc and utilise built in verbs reasonably comprehensively.
Of course, maybe great IF relies on new rules and actions to introduce fresh concepts, and I'm happy to pick those skills up as I progress, but for now I'd like to stick to my definition of beginner material.
My primary goal at this stage is to see what built in features there are without pouring through the manual and recipe book, and to see how good authors structure their code.
Titles of IF that meet the above criteria would be greatly appreciated.
