How to get a carpenter or builder (Closed)
Is it even possible to get a carpenter or builder so I can get free rooms? i have been constantly trying for over 2 days, and I still havent gotten a carpenter or builder. Does architect do the same thing?
Answer from: yatta
Yes an architect does the same thing it may take a while to find one but they are there once you have found one they must master there skill first before they can actually start building the room im in the process of mastering her now hope it works because the rooms are realy expensive
Answer from: raerae
No, i dont think so. i just got an architect, but im not sure how she is supposed to fix anything.

I got an architect, but im not sure if it works
Answer from: 4th gen player
One of your little people may be a carpenter or a builder but you will not be able to get free rooms from it. When they work it will be in the workshop, "working on career" will be their action, not fixing a room. In order to get rooms you have to go to the store and go to renovations. Hope I helped.

Just make the architect a master at his/her career!

My architect mastered hia job but idk how to build rooms using him
Answer from: ShayBaby
I'll confirm, I found an architect girl (for my, like, 15th generation) and mastered her at age 57. I have tried any and every possible way to get het to work on the rooms and it doesnt work. I figured that from the get-go seeing as architect was an office job. I'll try to get a carpenter or builder next time, but with only two rooms left to renovate, I'll probably have it done before I find him. And I have serious doubts that this "cheat" is actually true.

I got a mastered engineer at the age of 47 but idk how to make him fix any rooms. I left all the rooms(even decks) purposely and waited for him to master his career. Please help
Answer from: Wildflower724
I have a model builder that's 60 and he mastered his job, but when I tried to get him to fix a room ( by dragging him onto one, at least I would assume if this cheat is true ) he wouldn't fix it. It would say " running away in disgust! " And when I put him in the workshop, he would just work there, not on a room. And I wouldn't think that he wouldn't do it just because he's a little old. I am so disappointed. I'm 99.9% sure that this cheat is fake. I think it's someone's idea to mess with people. Whoever made this cheat up is probably laughing their socks off.
Answer from: :D
I tried forever to get a carpenter or builder, I don't think they even exist (I recommend NOT trying to get them). I saw many architechts and engineers though so I guess I should just try with them :)
Answer from: ShanFan
As the other people said, no carpenter or builder, just the others. model builders work in an office, so they cant fix rooms. they dont have to master the skill, just have it as a career. most important, make sure you have rooms left to fix! ;)
Answer from: Itsjustdude
Engineer doesn't work either, she was an office career and she mastered it still didn't work. Maybe this only worked in the first game?
Answer from: BabyDanosaur
There are carpenters and builders somewhere around. In the app store it specifically says that you can fix rooms yourself using certain careers. They're just really rare. Keep preserving and you'll get one eventually.
Answer from: AppleDawg
Apparently you can ask the game developer for help, I called and it wasn't a operating day but :P I recommend trying Mon-Fri
Answer from: Tusincool
I have just got a engineer and she won't even try to master her skills

Hi, I have no rooms fixed in my house! I have around 3030 coins and I am on my second generation. How do I get the children to be a carpenter or a builder when they grow up?
Answer from: VFLover
You cant make sure that they are a carpenter, but if you click on the home button(on your ipod or iphone or ipad) when your old family dies and you are supposes choose one of their children to succeed them. Anyway their jobs will change each time you click the home button. Btw it probably works better if you close the app completely by double clicking the home button and pressing the app until it wobbles and then press the red dash in the corner.

Answer from: Brie
ShanFan Model builders to not work in offices they work in the workshop. (To anyone)I have a model builder i am using it and I always try to get hime to fix rooms. I don't know what's happening. When he gets a promotion does that mean they can fix rooms yet. ( I don't think this actually works.
Answer from: yazz
I had a model builder AND a wood sculptor first gen. who both worked in the workshop and MASTERED their careers and still didnt fix. A thing. I tried them in the foundation only rooms and then the others and NOTHING. Im on level 7 with an architect and waiting to see what happens at level 8 but nothing yet. When I played the first time an event occured when my person was a chemical something (office job) and she identified the toxins in one room that UNLOCKED it early but it wasnt free

Answer from: Unkown
I have been searching for a carpenter and a builder for a long time now and I haven't found any! I think this is a fake cheat and I read all the comments above and not one of them said they got their people to help make the rooms. You are just going to have to pay for the rooms!
Answer from: HeyVF2
I really don't know if this is an actual cheat, but I had a wood sculptor and he didn't fix the rooms even after I mastered his career. However, it does say in the 'details' under the application in the app store that some carrers will fix your rooms for free. I also know that my engineer, who mastered his career ate age 54, won't fix the rooms.
Answer from: Track star
