The Bay Forest House ( Version 2 )
Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Usonian house”
Usonian homes were built for middle class American families in the early 20th century. The idea for these homes were to be practical, integrate with nature, and use natural, local materials. For the makeover of this lot, I looked at a lot of photos online of Usonian houses such as the Jacobs’ House, and the Rosenbaum house among others. I also researched the interior design of other famous FLW homes such as the Hollyhock house, Taliesin and Falling Waters.
This build is probably one of my personal favourites. I posted the first version on /r/TheSims on Reddit two years ago, but for some reason I never posted it here. When I came across it again when I was going through my gallery, I felt it needed an update now that I have all the packs. This version is fully decorated.
