The Sims Freeplay- Adding Mezzanine Floors (Indoor Balconies!)

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys


Once you complete the DIY Homes: All Mezzed Up Discovery Quest you will be able to add mezzanine floors to your houses! Mezzanine floors are partly open floors or indoor balconies, this post will walk you through how to add, resize and delete them.

 

1.Firstly you need to have rooms in your house to be able to add a mezzanine to, you need to have a room below the room which you want to build a mezzanine. I added a basement, a room on the ground floor and a room on the second floor:

2.Go to the house section and find the mezzanine tab:

3.Click on it, the tab says:

To build a mezzanine, touch and drag anywhere WITHIN a room. Ensure there is a room BELOW the room which you want to build the mezzanine. Green means the mezzanine can be built white red means it can’t.

4.Drag in a room to place the mezzanine

Click the green tick to place it there, click the red cross if you want to try again:

5.I built two mezzanines, one on my ground floor and one on my second floor, to build one on the ground floor you need to have a basement (click here for my adding basements guide!)

NOTE: There must be a room below where you want to place the mezzanine but you cannot place one between rooms

The white dotted line shows you where the rooms are located below, you cannot place a mezzanine over these lines:

You can only place up to these lines:

What is the cheapest mezzanine? A 2×1 mezzanine will cost S4,800

Adding Railings to a Mezzanine

Once you have built the mezzanine you can change the railings by going to the railings section and clicking on the mezzanine you want to change:

Resizing a Mezzanine

If you want to resize the mezzanine, go to the mezzanine tab and drag the white arrows on your existing mezzanine, click the green tick to accept the changes or the cross to go back to your original mezzanine.

Deleting a Mezzanine

Go back to the mezzanine tab and click on the one you want to delete, click the red simoleon button to sell that mezzanine:

  1. Is there a limit to how many you can have on one lot? I seem to be having trouble putting more than two on the house I’ve built. I’m hoping it’s just a glitch. Thanks!

    • There is no limit, it might be that you are trying to place a mezzanine between rooms on the floor below (you will know if you are as white dotted lines showing you the location of the rooms below appear) you cannot place a mezzanine on these lines. I hope that makes sense, I have just added pictures of this to the post to explain this and sorry for the slow reply, took me a while to work out what the problem could be, if it isn’t this then you may need to contact the makers to see if they can fix this issue for you as I am not sure what else could be causing this

  2. Hi there could you please expand upon when mezzanines cant be built? I’m trying to do one on the second floor of one of my properties and can’t figure at all why I’m only getting red blocks! I can do the floor below and the room sizes are exactly the same.
    Thank you so much!

  3. What are some reasons why a mezzanine can’t be built besides no room beneath it?
    Either I’ve got a glitch on my hands or something isn’t right about one of my rooms and I haven’t realized it.

  4. Hi, I’m at this step in the quest but it is always red each time I try to build. I e tried it on several empty rooms so there is plenty of space. I don’t know why it’s not letting me!

    • Hello, im just now starting the mezzanine level and do not have the mezzanine button to build the house.

      I’ve built a 3 story house and have yet to see that tab lol. Any advice you can offer?

      Thank you for your hard work and time.

  5. My question is more about cost of building.

    What is the cost to building a pool, balcony, and mezzanine at their minimum square footage (3×3 pool, (I assume) 2×1 balcony, and 2×1 mezzanine)? (For example, to build a 2×1 room, it costs 40 simoleons.) I’m planning out my Sims’ homes on graph paper, as well as the cost of building and decorating these homes, so knowing these numbers will help me plan out these designs.

    I also love your blog! I took a long break from the game, and when I came back, I remembered your blog helping me the last time I came back from my break before that one. I’ve been using it to plan out my next step for my Sims, like even now, I’m using it to go through the thought of how I want my Sims’ homes to look, along with the costs of all the things I would like to add to those homes. (Since when did everything get so expensive?! 73,000 for some potted plants!)

    Hopefully my question isn’t too confusing. Hope you’re having a good day!

    • Pool 3×3 (5×5 if you include the paving) S13,620
      Patio 2×1 S30,000
      Balcony 2×1 S6,000
      Basement 2×1 S8,000
      Mezzanine 2×1 S8,000

      Thanks! I know, everything has got really expensive recently!
