1956 National R-145

Ok, so I lied/was wrong/got more time to build than I'd expected, and here's another one. Noted: I'm tired enough I mislabeled all the pictures as R-143, and this is R-145. 
So here's the front of this cheerful, sprawling ranch:
Pink non-Cadillac included.

Frenetic front garden.


Living room, view one
Living room view two.
Note: that radio is not there.  I put it there while playtesting to see if it would work this way, and it does.  In the file, the radio is in the bookcase - after testing I see this blocks access to the bookcase.  I left the file as is because I couldn't decide where else to put it (it was originally the big stereo) and because there's a second book case in the home, so if you put Sims you're not playing into the house, they'll still have bookcase access.
Dining area, looking into the multi-use room, as National calls it.
Dining bar.
Moar kitchen!
The back hallway. 
There's a tiny, 2x2 room off this hallway.  I have a dresser and overhead cabinets in it to pretend it's a laundry room, but hopefully actual laundry machines will fit in there.  Or you could put a door (instead of an arch) on it, and it could be a powder room.
There IS a light in there, not shown.
Multi-use room, Richard Wilson is skilling.
Richard Wilson is a flirt and a romantic who's married to a woman (Debra) who brought all the wealth to the family.  She's a writer, he's a philanderer.  I suspect there's a book in there somewhere.
Family's not included though, they're just one of the test families

Girls room.
Girls study and playing with makeup area.

5 custom bears included, one for each potential spawn.
Boys room, with alien teddy bear in corner.
Boys study area and spawn container.
The main bath
I learned the convenience of a bathroom garbage bag next to the potty chair (you can't quite see the potty chair here but it's there) after my Legacy family had triplets while already having a toddler in the house.
Master bedroom, view one.
Master bedroom, view from bed.
Master bath.  It's pink!
The basement.
The garage.  I wish there were more retro cars in the basegame.
The garden.
The back yard.
The play area. 
Four bikes are included, but Holly and Paul Wilson both took bikes to school this morning.

So anyway!  Download below:

Where, goodness! it got 94 downloads when I wasn't looking.  Well, that makes my day!
