Since the big Animal Crossing New Horizons 2.0 update, and especially the release of the first (and last) paid DLC Happy Home Paradise, many features now allow you to better decorate your island. Among the free new features we find, for example, the ability to hang objects from the ceiling or create contrasting walls. It’s even now possible to fit through tight spaces in your home, much to the delight of fans who are tired of the huge gap between the couch and coffee table! Players can also get 4 new house models via a free update.
Additionally, most trim upgrades can only be unlocked with DLC. : this especially applies to partitions and other columns, but also to the possibility of completely modifying the house of our residents.
How to get the possibility to modify the houses of residents on ACNH?
You would understand that, you can only unlock this awesome feature if you own the paid Happy Home Paradise DLC. Once the expansion launches, you can start working with Lou and build the animal dream mansion you want.
- You will need to complete the main DLC scenario to unlock this option,
- The main story ends after 30 missions and when all the infrastructure is built,
- You must attendthe end of a special event DLC and then wait a day,
- Day after, Tom Nook will call you on your Nookphone and ask you to come to the Residents Office
See you at city Hall and sit in front of Tom Nook as he explains that you can now change the exterior and interior of your neighbors’ houses. At the counter, ask the tanuki “Let’s talk about the house”, then select the option “Tenant’s House”.
That costs money 9000 bells modify the interior and exterior of the resident’s house. After that, you can choose a neighbor of your choice and start with the works, which only take effect the next day. Just like in the DLC or in your own house, you can use the top view to make furniture placement much easier: you will have access to your entire catalog and thus be able to modify the decoration of your villager from A to Z.
