After you finish building the Main Hall
and Cellar of your house, you should see a lot of new options pop up in the Drafting Table. These are new wings you can add to expand your newly built home.Note:
Building three wings will grant you the Architect
Achievement. Building three different houses, each with three wings, grants you the Master Architect
achievement.Adding a Wing
Select the wing you want to add from the Drafting Table. Afterwards, you will use the Carpenter's Workbench to construct the different sections of that wingLimitations and Wing Combinations
There are three possible wing locations on your house: East Wing, North Wing, and West WingRules
The Maximum number of wings you can add to your house is three.
You can add one of each wing
