Today I’m offering a pair of semi-detached houses. One house is decorated in the style of the era in which it was built – the 1970s, the other is decorated in a modern and up-to-date style.

Who remembers avocado green bathroom suites and carpeted bathroom floors? Bright funky patterned walls? And those horrible ceiling tiles? And the lean-to conservatory? Well the 1970s house has all of that!

In the modern house the bathrooms now have white suites and tiled floors. The walls are painted in less vibrant tones (other than the feature wallpaper in the lounge). The ceiling tiles are gone – they were a fire hazard anyway. The lean-to conservatory has been replaced with a more modern, larger version. And an extension has been added to give much needed space in the kitchen.

These houses are modelled on the first houses that were built in the new town of Milton Keynes, where I live. Milton Keynes began to be built in the 1970s.

Whilst I was reminding myself of and researching this period of history (I grew up in the 1970s) I found a video and the link is attached to this thread – I hope you enjoy watching it.

There is a lot of CC in this lot but I feel that it makes the houses come alive. There is a section of CC that is purely decorative and so is not needed for the houses to function, they just won’t look the same as in the pictures.

These are semi-detached houses but function as apartments in the Sims.

I am horrified to discover I actually prefer the 70's version...

I really like how you redid the extension for the modern house and the little ensuite upstairs - creative solution indeed. Big Grin

Thank you Lee. I had great fun researching and reminiscing over the 1970s Smile

The linked film is so interesting - I really recommend people to watch it, even if they are not English and not from the generation that remembers the 70's.

It's like watching someone build a hood in Real Life.
