In a nutshell, once you build a room, go to the box icon present at the center of the room. The icon consists of two arrows pointing upwards and downwards. The former one is used for raising the foundation while the latter lowers down the room’s foundation.

Any other room that touches this room will then share the same foundation height. So, if you want two rooms with different foundation heights, make sure they don’t touch each other. Now you can easily add a foundation in Sims 4 whenever and wherever you need to do so.

I hope that helps! Stay tuned for getting more tips and guides from us.

Happy building to all Simmers out there!
