In Stardew Valley, players can customize their farms and farmhouses to suit their own tastes. It is not cheap to buy these items, but they provide the player with new features and a sense of progression. Below you will find a list of all the upgrades and costs that are associated with Farmhouses and Farm Buildings.
If you've never played the game before, make sure that you have at least gotten through your first year in Stardew Valley before upgrading anything. The first year is dedicated to teaching you everything you need to know about the game and introduces different kinds of farming and ways to earn money. Before you begin to fill in space, it is always a good idea to know what you want to accomplish.
How to upgrade your farmhouse in Stardew Valley
When you upgrade your farmhouse, you can do a lot more than you think. In the beginning of the game, you will only be given a single room with a bed, table, fireplace, television, and chair. If you upgrade it as soon as possible, you will have enough room for other items, and you will also be able to prepare your own meals.
Whenever you are ready to upgrade your farmhouse, head north of town to the Carpenter's Shop. As soon as you reach the counter, you should talk with Robin, who will be able to offer you the farmhouse upgrades that you desire. The upgrades are expensive, so you'll need a steady income before you purchase them.

How to upgrade your Farm in Stardew Valley
In addition to the fact that farm buildings allow you to expand your farm, they also provide you with new ways to make money from your farm. When you are are interested in building farm buildings, Robin can be found in the Carpenter's Shop north of town. If you bring Robin enough supplies, she will be able to construct your farm buildings for a fee.
You should keep in mind that buildings take up a lot of space on your farm, so you can only have a limited number of them. Fortunately, the farm space in Stardew Valley is quite large, but we still recommend you to plan ahead when it comes to what kind of farm you're going to build.
