You can't make a lot bigger. The size is given. To place bigger houses you need to put them on bigger lots.

Ok thanks so much. Do you know how to use houses that you get from mods?

I don't know what you mean by that.

 

Do you mean houses from other users or do you mean created by SimGurus ?

 

A mod is a package file you put into your game to change the way your game works. Has nothing to do with houses or short for moderator.

When you add a house/lot to the gallery, you can import it to your current save by clicking on the button at the bottom right of that lot's window (although that is only available if you have a game loaded already).

If not you can still add it to your gallery (bottom left icon) and once you have loaded your game, you can go back to the gallery and click the import icon on this lot. You will then be prompted to plop the lot onto an existing terrain, so you might end up replacing an existing house, be careful! Wink

I to would love to know how to do this. The lots need to be fixed to where they can be made bigger for bigger homes as you find in the gallery. EA should come out with some type of fix that will allow us to be able to do that. In the other Sims Games the lots could be customized to the size you wanted or needed, big mistake in the sims 4!

I absolutely agree!!! To have the choice to subdevide and adjust lots to be bigger also would be amazing!!!!!

I always want to add a pool or more buildings, like a shed or greenhouse. I'm resigned to moving everything to a larger lot, because I don't want to use mods.

@WildwingSuz, this is one of the reasons why I play with multiple SaveGames! Raised eyebrow  This way I have room for all of the large houses, or large families that I want to play! AngelLarge smile  I also put a lot of houses in New Crest because I don't have to bulldoze existing houses there and there are several larger lots in that neighborhood. Cool  Also, like you, I don't use Mods.  But I have tons of Save Games, and you might not want that many different saves, so a few would work nicely. Standard smile   It does use up more space on your computer, but this method works well for me.  Embarrassed

 

Happy Simming! Party hat
