Title farmconstruction

When you first start out on your farm you have 1 farm house, a shipping bin, and Takakura's house. Everything else must be purchased and built by Gotz, the Carpenter from Mineral Town. You can call Gotz on your telephone and buy lumber, hire him for construction, or ask him to destroy a building. Gotz construction is open from 11am to 4pm, and is closed on Saturdays.

At the start of your farming adventure you won't have a standard lumber bin to store material in. Any material you collect will be stored in your Rucksack (in stacks of 99) until you have Gotz build the material bins.

There are 4 types of materials you can use for building. The weaker the material, the more likely it will pass through a bad-weather storm and be destroyed the next morning.


The cheapest material you can use. Grass buildings are thrifty deals, but they can collapse in rain. The buildings can even collapse on sunny days! You can collect Grass material by using your Sickle on the pasture grass you can grow. You also can buy the material from Rick for 20 G each, but there's no Grass Bin to store it in until you build the Fodder Silo.


A bit better than Grass, but still not very stable. Wooden buildings won't break just because they feel like it, but during Hurricanes and Snow Storms don't expect them to hold up. You collect Wood materials by chopping stumps and sticks with your Axe, or buy it for 50 G each from Gotz


The most affordable and reliable material at 200 G per piece. Stone buildings can withstand any weather that can occur in your game, and will not be destroyed by storms. Smash the rocks and boulders with your Hammer to collect this material for free.

 Golden Lumber

Finally this material has a purpose! A building made with Gold can stand up to any weather that it has to go through. They are also very expensive to build. Gold Lumber can only come from the Thomas' Winter Request event or from buying it directly from Gotz for 100,000 G a piece. The only advantage to a Gold Lumber building versus the Stone Lumber building is its looks.

When you hire Gotz to construct a building he will ask you what material you wish to use. He will also offer the option to purchase the necessary material at the same time as his employment payment, or if you already have the materials on hand. The only buildings you can't select your material to us are your house upgrades and your Duck Pond. Those buildings must be made using Stone. The next day he will stop by your house and ask you to pick a location for the new building to be constructed. All of Gotz's jobs take 3 days, with time off for festivals and Saturday. Hiring him to demolish a building only takes him 1 day.
