Have you always wanted a beautiful neohome? The kind people stare at when they walk past? Well you’ve come to the right place! Here I will take you from planning the layout of your neohome to the final touches!

Layout Planning

The first step to building a successful neohome is planning it out. Take a piece of paper and divide it into 25 squares. Then mark in each square whether it will be a room or a garden. Make your layouts interesting! Don’t have all rooms, (or all gardens), and vary your boundaries.

As you can see, I have colored the garden areas green, and the rooms grey. This does not have to be final; you can change your mind through out the building process. Make sure to have enough rooms!

Have you ever looked at the Neohome spotlight, and felt ashamed of your Neohome? Do you ever wish that you could have one of those amazing manors made of things that no one in there right mind would build a house out of, but couldn’t because you were lacing in neopoints? Well, Now you too can build your own amazing manor, with out breaking the bank. All you need is 30-80k Neopoints, and a dream.

Step 1: Location Location Location

Before you can build your house, you need to have a site to build it on! Not a problem however, as you have nearly all the Neopian worlds to choose from! However, before you jump the gun and buy land in Faerieland, you need to think about your budget.

When designing a neohome, you must know what you’re doing. You need big money to make a good, decent NeoHome. What I suggest you do is buy a lot on Mystery Island. The cheapest is Neopia *yawn* but its boooooring. Lost Desert-for me, outta the question. Too expensive for my likes, and though exotic, too HOT!!!! Terror Mountain-Not for me either, too many people can’t get a decent heating system. Haunted Woods-I guess, but when you consider that they have their own hotel Cockroach Towers, and its well… downright scary, best give it a miss. Tyrannia-not bad, just of you decide to go live there, be sure you can stand the stench of dung, and, well, I couldn’t. Faerieland-Discouragingly expensive, but it is a really good place to live, and really the only bad thing about it is the cost of living there. Again, I suggest Mystery Island. Its a good place, not really costly, and a good idea for any pet cause the temperature is not an issue, neither is the cost, or the furnishings or buildings of neighbors. I suggest you start by building a ring on the outside of the lot, a total of 14 squares. Use wood for 11 of the rooms, stone for a security room, and chocolate for the two rooms of the kitchen. Put your pet’s rooms in appropriate places, like I have a Uni, Peophin and Kacheek, My uni is going to have a tower to fly from, and my kacheek gets a garden, and I don’t know about my peophin yet. Well anyway, starting in the top left corner, and spiraling downward, number off the rooms 1 thru 20. Then put down those numbers in order straight down the left side of the floor plan and write what furnishings to add to your neohome rooms beside the numbers, each representing a room with the same number. But first write in the boxes on your floor plan, what each room will be. The total cost will be 5000 np for the wood, and about 600 for stone, 700 or so for chocolate, making the total cost of the NeoHome and rooms roughly 10,000 np. Then when you take into consideration the upgrades, there’s another 10,000 np, plus say 10,000 or so np into furniture and gardening supplies, thats 30,000 np on making your NeoHome. So don’t make a NeoHome unless you have 30,000 np TO SPARE. – angelic_lil_cutie303
