Bolinbear's Construction Guide
Hello, and welcome to my Construction guide! Here in this guide, is all you need to know about Construction, the benefits and perks, and how to train to have the best Player-Owned House in all of Fury!
Benefits of Being a Master Constructor
So first of all, you'll have a sexy cape:
Secondly, there are many useful stations in a player-owned house that are useful for other skills:
Gilded Altar: Learned at 75 Construction, this increases exp gained from training prayer, which can be put in the chapel.
Crafting Table: Learned at 16 construction (upgrades at 25, 34, 42 cons) this station allows you to make various items.
Range/Oven: Learned at 42 construction, you can cook food on this in your kitchen!
And much, much more!
How do I start Construction?
Be warned, this skill will take a lot of monetary investment. You'll easily drop 100m+ trying to train this as there are various methods and items that you can create. Let's start with all of the rooms you can have in your house. To get to your Player-Owned House, teleport home and go over to the purple portal right outside the bank:
Once you click on the portal you will see 3 options:
In order to build and add rooms, please choose "Go to your house (building mode)". In this building mode, you will see a lot of greyed out areas and mostly transparent objects. These are stations you can build on and create items. You can also remove items once they are built.
Here are the list of rooms you can have alongside their prices:
A lot of rooms right? Luckily, at level 99 construction, you can have up to 32 rooms in your house, with capabilities of upstairs and downstairs levels as well!
Here are the important rooms to build for training/utility purposes:
Parlour (Level 1)
Kitchen (Level 5)
Dining Room (Level 10)
Workshop (Level 15)
Study (Level 40)
Chapel (Level 45)
All of the other rooms are simply for decoration and fashion-scape purposes.
Outside of the portal, you will see a Sawmill Operator. Trade him to get this shop:
Buy a hammer, saw, and about 500 nails or so. You will use more or less, depending on the game mode.
Here comes the expensive part. Planks. Planks are CRUCIAL to train construction. You need them to build most pieces of furniture.
If you click on Buy-Plank on the Sawmill Operator, you will get this screen:
You will need the specific type of log + that much money to make a plank. Each type of plank has a certain xp rate, going from normal planks to mahogany. I always recommend training woodcutting before training construction, so you can have planks to use to train construction.
Experience per plank used:
1,200 exp ea.
600 exp ea.
300 exp ea.
30 exp ea.
2,400 exp ea.
1,200 exp ea.

900 exp ea.
90 exp ea.
4,800 exp ea.

1,200 exp ea.
120 exp ea.
Here is my loadout and guide for construction training:
At level 1, build the Parlour, and start creating Crude wooden chairs (2 planks, 2 nails each). There are 3 spots to build them in the Parlour, simply build and remove them for exp.
At Level 5, build the Kitchen. This will be useful later.
Continue making crude chairs until level 8. Then you can start making regular Wooden Chairs (3 planks, 3 nails) for a bit faster experience.
Build the Dining Room at level 10.
Build the Workshop at level 15 (optional, more for utility than training purposes).
At level 33, you will need to start making Oak Planks, and build Oak Larders in the Kitchen. Each Larder takes 8 oak planks, but also results in a huge exp boost. Continue making Oak Larders until level 52 construction.
At level 40, build the Study (optional, more for utility than training purposes).
At Level 45, build the Chapel. This will be necessary for the Gilded Altar which is a must have at 75 construction.
At level 52, switch to Mahogany Tables in the Dining Room. This will be EXPENSIVE and requires 6 mahogany planks each. I recommend cutting the logs yourself, or buying from other players. You can make these until 99, or use alternative methods I will list below.
At Level 75, you can build your gilded altar. This will require 2 marble blocks, 4 gold leaves and 2 bolts of cloth, all of which can be bought at the Sawmill Operator outside the house portal. You will also need to build 2 incense burners to get maximum prayer exp. All types of burners give same exp and stay lit for the same amount of time. To match the altar aesthetically, will take 2 marble blocks and 2 steel bars each, for a total of 4 marble blocks, and 4 steel bars.
Alternative Methods to training Construction:
For those of us who can't drop 100's of mil on a skill, there are some alternative methods I've found will be useful.
At level 69 construction, you can build Carved Teak Magic Wardrobes which can be put in the costume room in a POH. This takes 6 teak planks.
At Level 74, you can build Oak Dungeon Doors, which can be built in the Dungeon of a POH. These doors take 10 oak planks to build.
What if I don't like how my house looks?
Talk to this Estate Agent, and you can have your house redecorated!
Well I think that should do it! Let me know if you have any questions or feedback for this guide, and I'd be happy to include them!
