The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs: Building a Custom Pet House

Today’s Sims 4 building tutorial we’re going to get a creative to give your dogs or cats an upgrade to their sleeping arrangements.

In this tutorial, we’ll be using various objects that will be combined to make a functional and adorable pet house with a tiny garden.

Let’s get started!

Once you’re in build mode, press CTRL + SHIFT + C to open cheat box in the top left of your screen. There are two cheats that you’ll to enter:

  • bb.moveobjects
  • bb.showhiddenobjects
  • [ – Left Bracket to size down
  • ] – Right Bracket to size up

Adding The Base

First, let’s get started by on a blank lot or either a backyard whichever you prefer. I’m going to be using the Medium- Tall Half Wall and the Tall Half Wall for the back. Use these tools to make a 2×2 square to get the base.

Once you have your 2×2 base, go over to the wall sculptures and filter it to show only Cats and Dogs objects. I’ve chose the Substantially Shingled Awning Small. You’ll use this as your roof for your pet house.

Using the awing to place it on the back of the tall half wall. Scale it one size using the right bracket ( ] ) and using the CTRL +9 to move up the awing. Make sure that it covers the back of the half wall to make it look like a roof. Then add your pet door from the door section filtering with Cats And Dogs.

Once you’re done placing your walls and roof, you can start adding your wallpaper and floor of your choosing.

Decorating the Garden w/fence

Now that your have your wallpaper and flooring, it’s time to the fun part of this creation. You’ll be able to get creative with decorating your garden with a little fence.  I sized down the Sun Spot Awing from Get Together with some pot planter.

Personalizing Your Pet House

Using the Cats and Dogs pack and other various of packs, you’ll get to personalize the way your pet will look like with using the pet beds and sizing down objects. To get everything inside the pet you’ll need to move the awing roof to place your objects. I wouldn’t suggest place a lot of objects inside just so you can keep the inside functional for your pets to use.

Now you’ve done it! You made your very own custom pet house!
