I had a blast building and decorating my entry to@redhotchilisimblr‘s 2nd replica challenge today. I managed to do it all in one sitting, mostly because I was home alone and decided that the whole afternoon would be purely for simming! ^_^
Description: I’ve named this lot Lorentz Bungalow. I decided to build it in Forgotten Hollow and it’s value landed on §77 300. It’s completely cc-free!
Lorentz is the name of my grandpa on my father’s side. He’s 89 years old this year and unfortunately he doesn’t remember much of anything these days. He was a carpenter when he was younger and he built the brick house that my father and his brothers grew up in. He loved gardening too which seemed fitting when this build required a vegetable garden. He always grew tomatoes and potatoes! Grandma and grandpa had the best raspberries and my brother and I spent many summer days playing in their garden.
My grandpa on my mother’s side was also a carpenter actually and both he and Lorentz were very proud of me getting my architect degree last year. I feel very blessed to have had them all my life and I love them both dearly. ♥

Jim makes Toby gourmet milkshakes after he’s had his braces tightened.
One of Claire’s favorite things to do is improv games. She teaches them to Jim and Toby and they’re pretty good at them.
The first time Arrrgh hears Toby curse is when he came back from the orthodontist with rubber bands in his mouth. Toby didn’t even notice him; he just stomped in, yanked them out, threw them on the ground and said “fuck that!” Arrrgh was like “child, no”
