The Sims Freeplay- DIY HOMES: All Mezzed Up


Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys

LEVEL: 17 UNLOCKS: mezzanine (partly open) floors TIME LIMIT: 7 days PRIZE: mezzanine house

Once you complete this quest you will be able to add mezzanine floors (indoor balconies) to any house, I am so happy we can finally add indoor balconies! To start this quest find Bree in the park, you need to complete the DIY Homes: Basement of Kings Quest before you start this one (it will take 24 hours for this quest to show once that quest has been completed)

You cannot complete this quest at the same time as any other discovery quest

How long does this quest take to complete?

Times may vary depending on what star rating the item has.

  • Talk to Bree- 5 minutes

  • Hug Bree- 10 minutes

  • Offer to help Bree- 15 minutes

  • Phone a cab to the mezzanine house (using a phone)

  • Health and safety tour- 1 hour 1 minute

  • Identify the hazard (the tiles are the hazard)- 2 hours

  • Clean space on second floor- you need to clean up two things:

  1. Bucket of water- 3 hours 20 minutes
  2. Ribbed rubbish bag- 1 hour

TIP: have two sims to clean these at the same time

  • Are we mezzanine ready?- you need to check three walls:

  1. Check wall- 3 hours
  2. Check wall- 5 hours 50 minutes
  3. Check wall- 2 hours

TIP: use three sims to check all the walls at the same time

  • Shoo the cat- 4 hours 10 minutes

  • Research mezzanines- 5 hours 30 minutes (using a computer)

  • Go to a home lot (send your sim home)

  • Build a mezzanine- go to the house section and click on the mezzanine button (that is flashing)

To build a mezzanine, touch and drag anywhere WITHIN a room, there needs to be a room below where you want to place the mezzanine:

  • Send sims home- send all sims who are at the mezzanine house home


Once you complete the quest you can add indoor balconies (mezzanine floors) to any house you want! If you want more information on how to build mezzanine floors give this post a read!

Prize: Mezzanine House

Where can I find it? In the house templates on both standard and premium house lots

Cost: First one is free, after that they cost simoleons

Is it worth it? If you don’t want to build your own mezzanine house but really want indoor balconies then it is worth completing in the time limit. If you would rather build your own mezzanine floors then there is no rush, I personally will be building my own house!

What is the difference between the standard and premium residence? The only difference is the garden, the house is exactly the same on both

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hey I had already done the basement quest and now i don’t take any discovery quest but when i went to the park, bree wasn’t there. Can you help me?

  2. How long exactly does this quest take?

  3. This seems like a cool quest! But I’m getting through the main quests first!

  4. Can’t wait for this quest, i’m excited. Thanks for all the help. You have an awesome blog.

  5. Please help! I cant find this quest or bree anywhere 😞 Is it ended? 😖😭

  6. How long will this quest be available? I can’t start it right now because I have another discovery quest going on that it’s going to take me another 2-3 days and I’m afraid not to lose it. Thank you!

  7. Thank you for getting me through another quest! Love you andve your blog! ❤ You’re the best!

  8. I know it is too much to ask but can you state in every quest how long it takes without using LPs but using the maximum amount of sims? Just like this one (5 days) 😁 It would be really helpful!

  9. There’s no mezzanine tab. I’m already in the “go to home lot” part. And i can’t build one cause there’s no mezzanine tab. I’m using sims freeplay mobile

  10. I think I’ll finish this quest in time for the prize, but what if I don’t have anymore lots to put the template house on? I have a house on every lot. If I demolish one can I put the template there?

  11. hi. I need some help with his quest because I doesnt appear on my sims freeplay. I didnt get any notification when i opened the game. New quests are supposed to pop up right when you go to the town map. I am currently on level 33 and had already completed the basement quest way back. I think this started with the chocolatier event last march 2018, it didnt show as well. I just knew about this event from their facebook page. I dont know what seems to be the problem. I was trying to update the app but the update button doesnt show–meaning, my app is updated. Please help. I am dying to have the mezzanine house 😦

    • New quests don’t always pop up, to start discovery quests you either have to build a place or talk to someone, for this one you need to find Bree in the park, click on here and select start the quest and it will begin.

  12. I’ve seen a couple of notifications via the game that this quest is available, when I click the “start now” button nothing happens! How can I start this quest?

  13. How can I speed up the last quest? 🤔

  14. I love your guides, they are so very helpful. My question is, I have just seen more items that maybe need clearing. At the moment my sim’s goal is to Cuddle Kitten on level 3 of the house, (after having helpers clear ripped bags, paint, bucket of water etc). But when I view level 1 of the house, I can see a pile of rocks and 3 lots of boxes. Do these need to be cleared too? Your guide only says the next stage is to approach Sue, then comfort Bree etc., nothing is mentioned about clearing these up too, so I’m a bit confused.

  15. Anyone else having problems with their coin flower patches randomly turning into a normal garden patch? I find myself having to put down a new coin patch about every other day because it keeps changing on its own to a regular patch.

  16. I think I have a problem. When I sent my Sims home the quest didn’t finish and I only have six hours left to finish in time to get the prize

  17. Hello, firstly thank you for your great blog and helpfulness (and patience!) answering all of our questions. My question doesn’t belong here, however it doesn’t seem possible to comment on your penthouse post. My question: In the lofty penthouse, there is a flat screen tv on the wall that looks larger than that unlocked in the French chateau (3 wide vs 2). Is this tv only obtainable by building the lofty penthouse or should it be available in the store? Or unlocked from a certain quest?
    Sometimes my game is missing random things, so I wasn’t sure.
    Thank you!

  18. You are awesome…keep blogging…I’m super excited about this quest and your posts mean I’ll get this one finished in time too…thanks for all you do!

  19. Can i Build an indoor balcony on the ground floor? Like having a basement and above that the balcony

  20. Hi I was up tot the bit of the quest where’s they have to leave and I left early with all my sims by clicking the home button before they left and now it won’t recognise that they have left and I can’t return to the house, just wondering if you have any advice?

  21. I have a question about items. I won this house and have built it on a premium lot. It seems like the items that come in the house are only in that house and not available for me in the home store. Is that how it goes? Do you have a blog post on items that appear in the store vs items that only appear in houses? I’m very confused how those items are not available for multiple purchases .

    • Yes that is what happens for most prize houses, there are usually a few items you can only get in the house although some items probably unlocked in previous quests or events, for example, the chandelier was from the christmas quest. I don’t have a post for this as I cannot remember how every item is unlocked, sorry about that!

  22. I thought you had to build a home for free after the quest is finished.

  23. If you don’t finish this quest in 7 days but still complete it after 7 days do you still get the mezzanine house

  24. Help! I didn’t clean the paint cans first before checking the walls and now it won’t let me, I keep getting the can’t walk there sign.

  25. Hi, can i start early the relax by the pool using 3 sims a bit early. Will it be recognized? Was thinking of relaxing the 3 sims while the interview is going on.

  26. I want to get rid of the mezzanine so my sims can go to their room and sleep but It says I have to complete the quest.

  27. I already finished the quest and have one free house but why is the mezzanine tab not showing in my home store? Thanks!

  28. I just took a several month break from the game. Before taking the break I had finished all the quests including the basement on. I would like to do this one now and being a discovery quest it should be available however I can not find bee in the park to start it. I have updated, I have left the park and came back, i have basically tried everything I could think of and still no bee. Any idea why I wouldn’t be able to start this now.

  29. Do you need to have a house with multiple floors to build a mezzanine?

  30. hey, I didn’t updated and played this game as well for a couple months but when I updated to the maternity update, I go to the park but Bree wasn’t there. is there’s anything wrong or I have to finished the daycare live event and the maternity first so I can start this quest?
