You might have left video games behind in your childhood, but these house building simulator games can get you hooked. Architects have been using home design games to unwind and flex their creative skills with no boundaries. It inspires them to try different building strategies or more accurately visualise the design ideas continually flowing through their heads.   

These home design games are entirely different from the 3D modelling software designers use to create homes. Although we love the 3D modelling software here at Residential Attitudes, the gaming world’s design process is much more fun, knowing it is not aimed to be replicated in the real world. Plus, with smartphone games for architects and designers, you are met with challenges along the way, so your brain is problem-solving as well as thinking creatively!   

At Residential Attitudes, we repel what is boring. Although we have nothing against baking, it is never our desire to fit into the cookie-cutter moulds of other home builders. We love these home design games because they enable users to envision and create their own build with no real-world consequences. And who knows, some elements in your home design game could be reflected in the home of your dreams!   

Get your game face on and try these home design games to build your dream home with no restrictions! Here is Residential Attitudes Top 5 house builder simulator games:

To satisfy the Sims of your city.
