wgroome's text: When Layton and Lucinda found out they were expecting it was the greatest day of their lives. When they found out they were having triplets? Not so much. Now their three daughters (athletic Lara, bookworm Leanne and musician Lorrie) are all teenagers, they are demanding their own rooms. Layton and Lucinda are happy to move, but want a large master bedroom and their own en-suite bathroom.

so elected to do the Lewis family. Either I'm way off base with the names or I just suck at making people. The Lewis family ended up being the O'Donnel family in my game. Patrick, Brighid, Lara, Leanne, and Lorrie moved into an old Irish manor. (I was making Layton and somehow he became a leprechaun, so I made the family Irish from there.) (apologies to any actual Irish out there, this is way stereotypical).

The house has a long history, it was built many many years back before the roads through town were drawn up. What is now the side of the house used to originally be the front. There was a large garden and doors to both main areas of the house. When the town got bigger and expanded outward, the road ended up on the side of the house. The front porch was redone to accommodate the new entrance direction and a driveway was put in. Many of the original details in the house still exist - like the wood floors, bathroom tiles and much of the fixtures from the copper kitchen, though it was moved from what is now the dining room. The stone annex was less of a fire hazard. A good deal of the house has been renovated as well. Its an odd mix of old and new, and the O'Donnels think it's just perfect for them. The kitchen and the living room are just the right size for the family to come together and enjoy their favorite activities without tripping over one another.

When the girls want to be alone, however, they each have an identically sized bedroom to partake in their hobbies. Lara is a ballet dancer. She has a barre and a mirror and she's also a bit of a girly girl. She loves pink and has crushes on all the celebrities. Leanne loves Shakespeare and anything from the Olde World. She also has taking up acting and lives in a fantasy land. When she doesn't have her nose in a book, she has her head in the clouds. Lorrie is quite the violin virtuoso. She regularly performs in concerts at school and sits First Chair. She's not just interested in Classical though, she also has a sweet stereo system to listen to the College Rock and Pop stations. See the pictures below for images of their rooms.

Just your typical family of redheads!
