The Sims Freeplay- Country Homestead Event


This limited time event started on the 14th March and is only available for 10 days!

To get all the furniture you need to complete the woodworking hobby collection 10 times! You get a country homestead furniture pack each time you complete it, once you unlock a furniture pack you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. If you have never done the woodworking hobby click here for details.

This is the second time this event has been available, if you completed it last time you will not get this event again. If you won some of the packs last time then you will only have to unlock the ones you have left, for example, if you unlocked 5 packs last time you will only have 5 packs left to unlock this time.
You need to buy a woodworking bench from the promotions r us store to complete this (or use the ones at the community center)


You need to firstly accept this event, it will remove the woodwork pieces you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the active tasks goal tab:

Once you have said yes you have to complete the collection 10 times in 10 days!


Confused about time limited hobby events? This video explains how they work:



-have more than one sim working on it (the shortest option is now 5 hours)

-have at least one sim at level 6 or working on getting to level 6 if you haven’t done the hobby before so all pieces are unlocked then you can just keeping doing the 5 hour option over and over (if you have completed this hobby before you don’t need a sim to reach level 6 in this hobby again!)

-remember to click start new collection on the woodworking hobby collections list once you have got all the pieces so you can find them again

– don’t panic! They will bring it back again if you don’t manage to complete it this time, these events usually reappear a lot!
-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly but you will eventually get the ones you need.

  1. Hello, I’m quite new in this game and I’ve not unlocked the hobby for the first time, I only have two rows although my sim is working hard since the day the event was announced. It’s nice to know that the event will come again because I’m quite sure I will not finish… My question is: what happen with the dog kennel? I will have it anyway?
    Thanks. Your blog is very useful for the newbies.

  2. I have 13 Sims workinng on this event and have only managed to unlock one set so far. Since we have had so many impossible events after impossible events, I have decided my new motto for playing this game is going to be, to “get what I can get and not get upset”. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this blog!

  3. I cannot place the homestead rangehood over any oven like I can with the standard rangehoods. It is always shows red and will not let me place a rangehood over the oven. The standard level unlock rangehoods work, just not the homestead ones.

    Do you know what I am doing wrong?

  4. I must be getting lucky with this one. I’ve unlocked 6 so far and gradually built up from 4 benches to 10. I had 8 benches for most of the first 4 sets on top of it. The extra two were partly for extra padding and partly because I had to buy a woodworking bench as part of my weekly challenge anyways lol.

  5. Just finished the event with 4 days to spare. At first I had 22 Sims working on it, but then and I had to reallocate some of them to other hobbies and kept 14. This was the easiest event I saw since I started to play again in November, because you can have how many Sims as you want and you don’t need to be on the game all the time. Getting my first Sim to level 6 though was torture. I had spent weeks trying and from level 5 to 6, the 12,5 hours option gave me only 4% each time. I was about to spend all my LPs on the last 22% when the event started, but somehow my Sim jumped from 78% to 100%. Now I’m hoping the urban furniture event will come again soon, because I love all the cool furniture I see in my neighbors houses.

    • I actually had the same exact thing with the level up percent and thought it was just me. I had one sim working on leveling up as soon as the event was announced, so a couple of days before, and they still were on level 4 when I started because like yours the leveling up was super low percents. Then the event started and within a couple more rounds he made it to six. I noted that the percentage had increased into the 20s which confused me. I wonder if I were to put one of my sims on that hasn’t leveled up to 6 over the course of this event now that I’ve completed it, if they’ll go back to moving up in small increments.

  6. I’ve found that I can make it work by putting the range hood in place first, then putting the oven under it. Doesn’t work the other way around for some reason.

  7. Hi,

    Your blog is great!

    Oh my goodness! I didn’t have any sims on level six so I’ve not even unlocked the first pack yet! Had a sim constantly doing 12 hours and only on level 5!! Got two days left so might get the first pack!!!!!!!!

  8. This event was boring and tedious. The whole time, with 3 Sims working it I got one item, the windows.

    However have an unrelated question. I have 31 Sims and am at level 49. I keep getting more houses unlocked but no Sims being unlocked. In the town information it keeps saying a new one will be unlocked at whatever the next level is but each time I’ve reached the new level no Sims are unlocked. I’m confused.

    • Did you previous use LPs to unlock sims early? If so it will say you have to wait for the next level but in fact you have already unlocked the sim at that level so you need to wait for it to catch up.
      Or are you currently adding a baby to your town? If so you cannot add a new adult sim until you have added the baby.

      • Hi,

        Thanks for responding. I don’t currently have any babies waiting to be born.

        I have never used LP/SP to unlock Sims early. I have only used the telephone to purchase with real money two toddlers, two preteens and two teens.

        Now with Sims marrying and joining households I have all of these nice, empty houses that I have used resources to remodel and furnish 😊

  9. This event was insane! I had 10 sims consistently woodworking day and night for 10 days and unlocked nothing 😂

  10. Please help, I’m still not able to get this event. Who do I speak with to get this event. Can you help?

    • To be able to do these events you will need to have updated to the latest version of the game. If you did this event last time it wouldn’t have appeared again for you to do this time.
