You have to buy a bigger land lot like near the lake to get a mansion house (:

You can't get rid of the fire code. the fire code is a thing on sims called "free space". when your free space is full (this happens when you have a lot of things or a big house) it does not go down and there is no way to get it down. so, if you want a cool big house, make sure you move to the empty lot, dont buy a house yet and only buy a fridge. go to the store, buy the cat fish. go home and wait about 30 seconds. then go back to the store and sell the fish, get the money, go back to your lot, sell the fridge, and you still should have all your free space left. because you have all this free space left, you can get any house because none of your free space is taken up. in other words, fire code is full free space. hope this helped you. :)

You can kinda stop it by selling your house and buying a smaller one that is unfurnished and has no upgrades

There is a cheat for almost every thing but the fire code. i wish there wasnt a fire code cause i love making the houses. but the new sims games are making them without the fire code! go buy thatt!
Answer from: Para pixel
All of the best houses will violate the fire code even if they have no upgrades. For each house try to get the smallest version of it and once you have purchased it then you can upgrade it even without being in violation of the fire code, even if you weren't able to purchase it fully upgraded. Hope this was helpful!

Ur not gonna find a cheat without the fire code because I have searched like everywhere and could not find a cheat 4 it but u can get one of those big houses... do the catfish thing then go buy the house above the school and sell all the doors and stairs (but u cannot get rid of the bottom floor stairs) then sell ur house and u can buy the charming Chatlet house i mean it's pretty big. I am using the house right now and it is really big and it will say there is a fire code but u can actually move on instead of letting u not buy the house so. I hope this was helpful!! Have a great day!

I started a new game, done the catfish treat, tried to buy the gothic mansion on the empty slot and NOOO! Ruined by violation fire code. I've been trying everything but sorry, nothing you can do. It wouldn't be a game without glitches lol

Hi Ezers123456789 :) I'm happy to tell you that there is a cheat to get rid of the fire code! But there is one problem though, only 20 percent of the people who use this cheat are successful. All you have to do is buy anything you can aford and fill your whole property with anything big, then you just delete everything.Repeat this 5 times and hopefully the fire code will stay down for a long time.

Try putting a fire alarm in every room of your house. Once done with that, remove all of th alarms, unless you wish to keep them. If this doesn't work, go back to playing mode then switch back. Hope this helped!
