View Full Version : Connecting a garage to a house
23rd Aug 2006, 12:23 AM
After I built my garage I built the foundation for my house. but it wont let me put foundation right next too the garage. It says "Tiaren not level"
Also If I put foundation down 2 squares away from the garage and try to put a wall right up to the foundation it says "covered by floor tile"
If you know how to do it or if it's just not possible please tell me! I would really appreateate it!

I was trying that with a house I'd built previously before I got the EP. I don't think it is possible. It seems you can't build wall segments from actual ground level up against or joining onto a foundation as it gives the "covered by floor tile" error you mentioned.
In order to connect the garage to the house you have to have it on foundations as well, but of course you can't do that with the driveway extension. I gave up in the end and just had a seperate garage, but sealed it off round the sides with fencing making it so sims still have go through the house and out a side door I built in order to get to the garage.
It works to a degree, although they do sometimes walk out the front along the road and through the garage door instead of going through the house, but I think it depends on which way they think is quicker.
