How to upgrade your house in Stardew Valley

More room for decorations!

If you're looking to expand the size of your home in Stardew Valley, you'll need to speak with Robin, the town carpenter. Along with house renovations and farm building constructions, Robin handles all home upgrades inside the Carpenter's Shop (located in the mountain home she shares with Demetrius, Maru, and Sebastian).

The Carpenter's Shop is open from 9 AM until 5 PM every day except for Tuesdays and Friday afternoons. Each house upgrade will take three days to complete.
