Sick of living in the elements while playing Stranded Deep? I totally get it. The good news is that you have the option to build a house with a little bit of time and material. Ok, that’s underselling it a bit. Few things in this game take as much time and resources as building a house. In the end, the effort is usually worth it though! Dive in and learn all the steps with our Stranded Deep how to build a house guide.
Stranded Deep: How to Build a House Guide
Not sure how to build a house in Stranded Deep? We’ll get you on the right path. There are five steps you have to complete, although some of them are very time and resource heavy. We’ll list them first, then describe them below.
- Grab a hammer and equip it
- Get the materials in your inventory that fit a recipe for a foundation
- Lay the foundation, then hammer until it is built
- Select the resources and recipe for the next part of the house you want to build
- Repeat as needed
Getting a hammer is the first step in most building endeavors. In fact, most of the resources in the game are largely useless without one. Ideally, you can obtain a refined hammer from a shipwreck. If you are without one you can build a crude hammer using 1 lashing, 1 stick, and 2 rocks.See Also: Stranded Deep Coconut Flask Guide
Once you have the hammer equipped, navigate to your inventory, and find the recipe for the foundation. Just like in real life, your building starts with the foundation and builds up. If you have all the resources you need, you will have the option to lay the foundation. That only starts the process, as you will then need to begin hammering until the foundation is complete. There is a circular progress bar over the foundation; when it is filled you will be done.
Once the foundation is laid, you can build the type of house you want. It can have multiple layers or a single, but you must add at least one before topping it with a roof. In the end, the type of house you choose is entirely up to you. Just repeat the process described above for each layer!
