How to place the foundation for your house in Palia

After Major Kenli brings the blueprints, your next quest will be called “House, Sweet House”. The quest description will require you to place the foundation for your house. To complete this quest and place the foundation for your house in Palia, open the housing menu by pressing ‘H’, select the house blueprint from the left tab, and place it in your plot.

Keep in mind that if your tent is in the way, you’ll need to move it or pick it up.

To pick up or move the Makeshift Tent, enter the moving menu (default hotkey: Ctrl). Move close to the tent and two options will come up. With right-click you can move it somewhere else within your plot and with ‘G’ you can pick it up.

After picking it up, you can find it in your inventory. Since it doesn’t have any practical use, I recommend picking it up and storing it in a chest. After all, you have no use for the tent since you’re building a house.

Also, after you place the foundation for your house, navigate to the sign right in front of the foundation. There, you’ll need to bring the following materials to build the house:

  • 100x Sapwood Plank
  • 35x Stone Brick

These can be made from the Basic Sawmill and the Stone Smelter respectively, which are unlocked right after speaking with Tish in front of your house.

Lastly, wait eight real-life hours for the construction to complete and your house will be good to go.

To sum up, you can place the foundation for your house in Palia by pressing ‘H’ after getting the blueprint from Major Kenli. Just make sure to pick up the tent to have enough space on your plot.
