Adding stairs can be a bit tricky if you haven’t done it before so hopefully this guide will be useful! You can only add stairs once you have completed the Multi Story Renovations Quest.
Once that is completed you can add a new floor, to do this, click on floor construction (second tab in the house section of home store) Then you will see a white highlighted area, click that and it will show you how much a new floor will cost you, click the green tick to buy it:
This will take you to the next level, then you can add a room like you normally do, if you don’t know how read my adding, deleting and resizing rooms post here
NOTE: you must add rooms to the second floor before you can add stairs!
Lastly you can add the stairs. Stairs can also be found in the house section, select the one you want to buy and you can then place it in your house:
The image below shows you how it looks when the stairs can’t be placed:
Why can’t I place stairs in my house?
- There may be something in the way downstairs (like in my picture above)
- You may be trying to place stairs through the white lines- the white dotted lines show you were the rooms are above so you cannot place stairs on them:
- There may be something in the way on the floor above- use the floor button on the side of your screen to see what is in the way upstairs (the squares will appear red if there is something in the way upstairs)
To fix this you could move items upstairs that are in the way, if you can’t because a wall is in the way you may need to choose a different style of stairs which is what I did, I couldn’t fit in these stairs so I decided on the compact staircase instead.
This picture is how it should look when you can place the stairs in your house, press the green tick to buy them:
You now have stairs in your house!
How much does each floor cost?
Which floor do I have to place the stairs on?
If you want your stairs to reach the second floor you will need to place your stairs on the ground floor
If I delete my house will I still have the 2nd and 3rd floors or will I have to buy them again?
Unfortunately you will have to buy them again now, they have annoyingly changed this!
Can I add more than 4 sims to my house now I have another floor?
No, the maximum is still four
How do I add stairs outside?
