Happy Home Academy Theme Challenge Guide


After you completely upgrade your house such that you can't expand it anymore and have paid off all of your mortgages, you attain VIP status, and you become eligible to participate in the HHA Theme Challenges. These challenges require you to decorate your house with items from a specific theme (Antique, Fairytale, Hobby, Horror, Natural, Oriental, Science, and Stylish). If you get a large number of points, you win golden parts for your house (Golden Roof, Golden Walls, Golden Door, Golden Fence, Golden Mailbox).

How to Become Eligible for VIP Status and the Theme Challenges

Upgrade your house completely and pay off all of your mortgages. The next day, Lyle will be outside of your house and will tell you that you have attained VIP Status. As a VIP member, you can choose to participate in HHA Theme Challenges.
