Note:
This home was inspired by a real home plan from the 1920 Bennett Better-Built catalog. I have done my best to update the homes to our modern standards, however, you may find that some of the homes in this collection have smaller or fewer bathrooms, kitchens, garages, or less open living spaces. This is because I would like to preserve the integrity of the original floor plans.

About this home:
I've furnished this home for a couple (or single) with a teen/child daughter, teen/child son, and expected/infant/toddler son. Obviously things can be changed and moved around easily so that this house can fit the needs of your Sim family.

About the 1920 Bennett Better-Built catalog Homes:
In 1920, Ray H. Bennett Lumber Company of North Tonawanda, New York published its 14th catalog of ready cut homes. Like Sears and Aladdin, Bennett sold kit homes from currently popular plans. Once ordered, each house was crated and shipped from Tonawanda to its new owner. Bennett Homes are concentrated in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, as well as into the upper Midwest.
"Today, more than ever before, people are seriously considering how they shall live. They realize that the inspiration of home, next to religion, is the greatest in life ... The dainty cottage—the inviting bungalow—the comfortable Colonial—the cosy story and a half—these are the leading homes to-day ... Bennett Homes, Better-Built and Ready-Cut, satisfy every desire and every need of home-lovers—for the dwelling-place which shall possess charm, convenience, and endurance to the greatest extent consistent with the desired investment."
