The handiness skill affects how well you are able to repair and upgrade objects.

How to learn Handiness

  • Repair or upgrade objects
  • Read the handiness skill books.


  • Electrician - After repairing 10 electrical objects, you are immune to electrocution from electronic objects. (That might mean that your Sim can still get electrocuted in other ways, but I don't know.)
  • Plumber - After repairing 10 plumbing objects, any plumbing objects that you repair after that will never break again.
  • Tinkerer - Perform ten unique upgrades on household objects. Unbreakable only counts once, so any subsequent Unbreakable upgrades that you perform won't contribute to this total.
