In the past, Link’s houses in the Zelda series didn’t serve much of a purpose. However, in Breath of the Wild, we were introduced to Terry Town, where we could buy and personalize our own houses for the first time. Now, in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Terry Town makes a return, but the process of buying and building a house has changed. It’s no longer just about buying a house and upgrading it; you have more control over the design. If you want to create a peaceful sanctuary for Link to call home, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to purchase and construct a house in Tears of the Kingdom.
How to Buy a House
In Tears of the Kingdom, you’re not purchasing a house directly; instead, you’re buying the land to build your own. This process may seem involved, but it’s necessary if you want to create a cozy abode.
Step 1: Make your way to Terry Town, located in the northeast region of Hyrule.
Step 2: Approach either Rhondson or Hudson in Terry Town.
Step 3: Rhondson or Hudson will express their concerns about their daughter, Mattison, leaving for Gerudo Town.
Step 4: Look for Mattison on the second floor of the house.
Step 5: Accompany Mattison to her grandmother, Monari, who will ask for the Gerudo word for “granny.”
Step 6: The correct answer is “Vaba.”
Step 7: Mattison will then want to go to the construction site to ride the railcar, but her father will stop her.
Step 8: Use a plank to obstruct her father’s line of sight, or use a Puffshroom, and assure Mattison that it’s safe to sneak past.
Step 9: Locate Mattison near Hudson and give her the 10 Sundelions she requests.
Step 10: Wrap up the quest by speaking to Rhondson.
How to Build a House
Once you’ve completed the previous quest, you can approach Rhondson and purchase a plot of land and two rooms for 1,500 Rupees. So, make sure you’ve amassed enough cash.
Step 1: Your plot of land will be located just outside of Terry Town, near the Rasitakiwak Shrine.
Step 2: Speak to the man behind the counter to begin the construction process.
Step 3: You can now utilize the Ultrahand tool to position your two starting rooms in any configuration and space you desire.
Step 4: Ensure that your rooms are within the roped-off area. Once you finish, the inspector will approve your first home and contact Rhondson.
Step 5: With the completion of the tutorial house, you will unlock a wide range of housing options, including the ability to purchase different room types. There are more than a dozen room types available, such as the Weapon Stand Room, Gallery, Bedroom, Kitchen, and Flower Bed. Each additional room will cost a couple hundred Rupees.
Step 6: Keep in mind that, in addition to the roped-off boundaries, there’s a limit of 15 rooms for your house. So, unfortunately, you won’t be able to construct a massive mansion.
