Steps for How to add a Foundation

  1. Select the wall tool and use it to create a room.
  2. With the help of the Select tool (H), click on all walls one by one. The entire room will get selected.
  3. Use the up arrow to lift the foundation and choose the height for the foundation.

  1. Click on the Foundations menu and choose the wallpaper you like.
  2. Choose the paint color and click on the foundation to paint it.
  3. You will need a ladder as the foundation is higher than the floor.
  4. Use the wall tool to build a balcony or terrace. Various Construction tools are available for you to explore your creativity.
  5. Remove a few fences from the terrace with the help of the sledgehammer tool (K).
  6. Don’t forget to save some space for the ladder.

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.
