First build in TS4. Help!
I'm taking a stab at building since I can't find what I'm looking for. I haven't built anything since maybe sims 2. I have these plans I found online but have no idea how to translate them to the game. Can anyone help?

You're sure you want that staircase?

I'm OK with changing it.

I started and have a shell of a house but it is HUGE. I'm off on the scale. And then the roof looks funny.

Make the staircase first, make sure you can manage it. Then you put in the kitchen. It will give you the size of rooms.

Make sure sims can move around the furniture. Put up walls around the furniture placeholders and put windows and doors where you want them to be. Take a look at the result and judge the result. Can you make it look pretty?

hi, i myself use real house floor plans for building my homes on the sims 4! the easiest way to go about this is using the in game web browser by pressing "shift+F1" and finding the exact floor plan and then pin the page and use it that way. if that doesnt work then use your phone or tablet to look at the floor plan that way. I hope this helps??

The problem is often you can't just use the floorplan as is. It needs to adapted to the game. Your sims has to use the objects and many objects seems like they only need 1 tile, really doesn't. The kitchen has to include some things and there might not be space compared to the drawing. Using RL floorplans can end up being a trap, but if you're prepared to do changes it might work out fine.
