Hi, I'm trying to add a basement to a house that already has a foundation on it and then stairs that go from the living area to the basement. Is this possible? If so, how do I do it? Thanks!

Hi again, whoever answers this, I saw one video, but really can't follow it very well b/c there's no voice or text for how to do it. All he does is show what he is doing, but I'm not very familiar w/the tools of cfe. It looks like he placed a wall and then raised the ground up next to it, but not sure how big the tool is that he used and not sure how he got the flooring to go where he wanted. Please keep in mind that I'm a completely novice builder here.

Is this a "fake" basement made with foundation and CFE, or one made with the actual basement tool? I always build on a foundation, and the couple times that I've used the basement tool, I believe I simply put in the stairs going down, just as I would have if I was putting stairs from any other level (since stairs are modular, it should automatically make the staircase longer to reach down the extra foundation height.) :)

Hi! I really don't know. It's a house that came w/Appaloosa Plains. It's the house right accross from the dog park. Every time I try to put stairs into the basement, I don't see anything but either the top of the foundation (like the platform) or the ground. I wound up putting the basement next to the house and a separate access to it. When I built a sub basement onto that though, I wasn't able to put the reg modular stairs on it, but only the spiral stairs. :/

I have done this on a home I have built, have not tried it on an existing home.

When I tried it would not allow the stairs to be build inside the foundation. So I have to build part of the foundation (or take part down) where I wanted my stairs. Then made short stairs from the foundation to the ground level and then from the ground level to the basement. Once the stairs are there then I build the rest of the foundation for the main floor.

(Note: be careful when putting flooring out as it will cover the stairs or part of the stairs and your sim wont be able to use them.)

If you google Sims3 basement stairs with foundation I believe like someone else said there is a video to walk you through this.
