Timber framed house
A Timber framed house (more accurately, a timber framed building) is little more difficult to build and uses more resources than a wooden house, but it requires less skill than a stone house, and offers basic protection from decay, theft, and invaders. It also does not require iron which might make it easier to build than a wooden house.
- When building a wall, window, or door, the quality of the materials and the player's skills affect the initial quality of the piece built.
- Create a building plan for the future structure.
- Activate a mallet, right-click the wall plan, and select the desired wall type.
- With the mallet still activated, right-click the wall plan, and select "Continue building" until the wall, window, or door is finished.
- The initial action consumes one wooden beam; after that the rest of the wooden beams are used followed by the first 10 clay and the 10 mixed grass together and then the final 10 clay.
- A building plan with no walls will decay in a few real-life days so make sure to start at least one wall.
Note: Only the owner of the house writ can add inner walls.
Repairing and improving
- Any damage must be repaired on the walls with a plank before improving it.
- Activate a plank, right-click the wall, and select "Repair" or "Improve".
- The effective quality of the plank is affected by its damage and the player's carpentry skill.
- Any quality plank can be used to repair and improve a wall (which will improve by between around .04-1.5+ QL per plank--more research needed but a higher QL plank will yield more improved QL).
- 1 plank of any QL will only repair 10 damage.
