Stardew Valley is a game that allows you to run a farm virtually. However, a farm wouldn’t be complete without a farmhouse which is why it would be great if you do some house upgrades and renovations. In this article, we shall provide you a guide on how to do this.
In Stardew Valley, you will be able to get to many places and get to spend time wherever you wish to. However, just like in real world, there is no place like your own home. At the start of the game, you will be residing in a small, one room cabin. Do not worry, you could still upgrade and update your small house into something more huge. You could add more rooms and even design it yourself. Though this is a good thought, remember, upgrading your house would cost you money which means you would need to have enough resources to be able to upgrade your farmhouse.
Your farmhouse’s initial layout and its furniture would depend on your preferred farm layout. If you chose the standard farm layout, then, you will be getting wooden furniture, flooring and walls. If you wanted the forest farm, you will get some trees, leafy garland and leaf-motif wallpaper. As for other furniture, you could get them no matter what type of farm you chose.
