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

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

How do I phone a cab to the mezzanine house?

What are the hazards?
The tiles are the hazards

How much does it cost to build a mezzanine?
The cheapest is S4,800 for 2×1

I had all sims leave the mezzanine house but it didn’t complete the goal, why?
Try and have all your sims not doing any action, this sometimes makes the game recognise you have completed that goal

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The mezzanine house

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
