Available from the 20th (of May)!
DIY Homes: Basement of Kings

Bree, the DIY Gal, has a new project that will push your Sim's renovation skills even further: building basements! Can your Sim tackle this new challenge and look stylish for the cameras all at once?

Thank you, Perturbee. In the Dream Homes Quests/events schedule topic you wrote:
Perturbee wrote:Basements can be added to lots with 5 floors (so essentially giving you 6 floors to build on). Basements cost § 4,000 per square.
Since the upcoming quest requires building a basement, do we have to build all 5 floors first? Or can we add it to any other house?

No, you can add a basement to any house lot, even without any rooms above it. (A boat is not a house lot, by the way).

Thank you for letting us know about this Perturbee :) So, after the quest we can only add basements to house lots with 5 floors? To bad about not being able to add a basement to a houseboat. I would love to add a hull to my mine.

It isn't that the house must have 5 floors. It is that the quest for building basements doesn't come to us until after the ability to build 5 floors has been opened to us. After finishing the basement quest, then you can build a basement on any house lot (not boat lot), no matter how many floors you have. :)

I know this is a big *ask* but do you know how many LPs you would need to skip through to finish the quests? I am desperate to gain LPs ATM in view of the upcoming quest and wanted a heads-up if someone had an inkling of how many I'm going to need!
I'm trying to harvest LPs but the going is a hard slog and they are as *rare as rocking horse pooh* so far! :lol: even on my neighbour's plot Reindeer farm they are so hard to gain. Maybe FM are holding them back! :roll:
Cheers guys! Thanks in advance..

I'd not rely on a youtube video :? All tasks are listed in Perturbee's link in the opening post.
http://sfptips.perturbee.net/2015/05/qu ... .html#more

There are tasks which take one, two or five minutes. I don't think one wants to speed up those tasks with LPs :)
If you compare, you might find discrepancies.
Downtown High, 5.32.1
iOS 10.3.3

Kitten and play box 2 West Oceanside
HFN 3 Eastside includes cat and dog.
Haunted House 1 Museums Boulevard and Volcano View
