Animal Crossing: New Leaf Guide

House Expansions and Remodels

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you can choose where to build your home. You start in a tent, but Tom Nook remodels it to be a house. After you pay him off, you can add a basement, second floor, and rooms to the left, right, and back. You can also make your rooms bigger, and you can change the appearance of the exterior of your house.

Adding Floors and Making Bigger Rooms

After you pay off your loan to Tom Nook, you can talk to him in the Tom Nook Housing office in the north part of town. He gives you the option to add new rooms or expand existing ones. When you ask him to build a new room or expand one, he starts a new loan that you have to pay off before you can do any more remodeling. These are the rooms you can add:
