Game The Sims (console)

Mom's house is a location in The Sims (console) and The Sims: Bustin' Out. It is, obviously, where Mom lives.

In The Sims for console, the player lives here when they start the Get a Life Storyline. Mom is playable on this lot, but if the player tries to make her do any chores, she will refuse and tell the player's Sim to do it.

In The Sims: Bustin' Out, the house appears to be near a farm, and is very small, but comforting. Mom is not a playable character in The Sims Bustin' Out, but she will make dinner and clean up. Like The Sims on console, the player character starts at this lot at the beginning of the game. Oddly enough, there is only one bedroom in the house, meaning that the player must build another room for themself if they choose to stay, but they don't always have to.

Moving outEdit

In order to move out in The Sims, the player's Sim must "borrow" 800 simoleons from Mom, get a cooking skill in order to make dinner without starting a fire, get a mechanical skill point in order to fix the TV, and get a job.

The goals needed to move out in The Sims: Bustin' Out are much simpler than the ones in The Sims for console, which include going to the bathroom and using the double speed.

Mom will nag the player until these goals are accomplished. Unlike in the first game, the player's Sim can visit and/or move back to Mom's house.


  • In Bustin' Out, moving back in to Mom's house every now and then is a great way to increase your skill points and relationships without needing to go to work, since no bus ever stops outside her house. Once you're ready to go back to work, simply move back in to the house that you were staying at previously and you will still have your job.


  • In The Sims Bustin' Out the Sim's needs go down drastically slower in Mom's House and in some cases do not go down at all. This means that the Sim can use the Easel out the back to increase their Creativity Skill to 10 before starting the game properly.
  • Mom can be heard crying several times and a dialogue screen often appears saying "What did I do to deserve this?"
  • Also, the player must reach this place in Continue in order to activate Free Play.
