More details about the Sims 4 bahay kubo

On April 27, 2023, a video game player named Paszerine shared her latest creation. It was a modern recreation of a nipa hut or “bahay kubo” in Sims 4.

She built it on a 20×20 lot in the Sulani neighborhood, a part of the Island Living expansion pack. Paszerine shared it on Reddit and asked fellow users for comments:

“Hello! If you play the Sims, this [project] has no CC [custom content]. I did my very best with the resources I had in-game. Let me know what you think!”

“I’m open to criticism, and exterior architecture is not my strongest suit, so feel free to let me know how I could improve this.” Also, she added a link to the YouTube video showing how she made the structure.

Paszerine added, “If you want to download this in the Sims 4, my Gallery ID is paszerine.” Later, it seems someone asked about the vehicle in the background. That is why she added the following edit:

“yung sasakyan po, it’s just decor :) hindi functional mga kotse sa Sims 4 sadly. Dahil maraming nagtanong, makapasok lang din if ever at maka labas po sa gilid (cropped po yung pic, meron pong opening doon) based sa top view :)”

(The car is just a decoration. Sadly, cars in Sims 4 aren’t functional. Because many people are asking, you can enter and exit from the side (The picture was cropped, but there’s an opening there) based on the top view.)


Sims 4 is a life simulator game that lets you create human-like characters like Sims. You guide them through their lives, from starting their new homes and families to building their careers.

How did people respond to the Sims 4 project?

The Reddit and YouTube content for Paszerine’s bahay kubo gained much attention. That is why you can read many comments raving about it. Alisa Kumm shared this long statement on the video:

“This looks like it could be from a design magazine; it’s so beautiful! Your choice of windows in combination with those wallpapers just works. The different wood tones feel natural together.”

“Despite being modern, the house has enough nods to traditional elements that even I can tell it’s a Filipino home. Despite looking so elegant, it still feels warm and full of life due to your attention to detail and the beautiful natural materials on the interior and exterior. You always amaze me and show me what is possible with this game if you know what you’re doing.”
