Greetings, Simmers!

~~~~~~Things I learned growing up in the 60's when it came to the midcentury ~~~~~~

1) Someone, somewhere, decided that plastic and aluminum were good design choices.....
2) From the outside, a modern home could easily be mistaken as an office building
4) The big brick planter box in the living room usually contained plastic flowers...
5) You haven't seen ugly until you've seen worn out beaten down ORANGE shag carpeting
6) On television, June Cleaver vacuumed in high heels and a pearl necklace
7) The combination of an indoor game of tag and the brick planter box sent many of my friends to the emergency room for stitches in their heads

ah, yes! The 60's

....and on to the build....

This is built on a 4x3 medium lot... and costs 119,527 simoleons completely furnished.
I tried to keep colors as neutral as possible while sticking with patterns that were true to the time frame.

The CC is all included..... and I want to thank the creators for their work and generosity to the simming community!

Amovitam.... the fencing and garden gate... :
Macarossi ... for the wonderful flowers... :
Samanta Black... for the BSI roses and hydrangeas :
Raynuss ... for the paneled window and door set : https://rdnussimaginethat.blogspot....s-set.html#more

LOL fond memories of ugly shaggy carpet and plastic flowers! I hated having to dust and vacum those horrific decorations. LOL
I never understood how tv moms could be dressed for church everyday and doing the cooking, cleaning laundry, etc.... How many women in the fifties and early 60's must have felt less than perfect housewives and mothers. Then there was Valium!
On the up side another fantastic lot Red. Thank you!

Yeeow! See your going Retro too, Red. This will make a nice addition to my growing 50's / 60's hood. Many thanks and, as always, happy Simming!

This is such an awesome house. How did you get those -- they look like acoustic ceiling tiles to show on the underside of the sloped roof in picture 3? is that cc?
