Surviving in Terraria is difficult for new players, since hostile creatures will be waiting for them at every step. Moreover, during the day, you need to find a place to hide from zombies, and other enemies that spawn at night. To do this, players have to build a house in Terraria.
Unlike in Minecraft, not every hole or cave can be considered a house in Terraria. There are several conditions that you must fulfill so that monsters do not spawn in your home, and town NPCs move to you. But if done right, it’s quite simple.
Terraria: How to Teleport
Want to explore the huge world of Terraria with more comfort or get out of a tough fight? Here’s a list of all the ways to teleport in the game.
How to Build a House in Terraria
At the beginning of your survival, you need to collect some dirt or wood, as these materials are available in abundance. Then, using these blocks, you can build the frame of your house. It will protect you from monsters during the first night. However, you must add walls to cover the background of your house. And, you shouldn’t leave gaps in this side wall because, otherwise, enemies may spawn in your house.
But this is not all that needs to be done for the game to recognize your building as a house:
- The house must have at least 60 tiles, including walls and ceiling, but no more than 750. For example, a house can be 15 tiles wide and 4 tiles high.
- The house must have at least one door.
- The house should have a light source, a flat item, and a comfort item. A torch, table, and chair will do to get you started.
This way, you can build a base for you and other NPCs. It is also worth noting that different houses can share the same walls and ceilings, which greatly simplifies construction. We recommend building houses horizontally in a row for ease of use.
Terraria Trick Gets You Infinite Money

How To Check Whether Your Construction Is a House?
To find out if you built the house correctly, you can use the convenient Housing menu feature. To do this, open your inventory and click on the house icon. Then click on the question mark and click somewhere inside your home. If you did everything correctly, you will see a corresponding message. Otherwise, the game will tell you what your building needs to become a real house.
That’s all you need to know about how to build a house in Terraria. Your base is a place where you can save, craft things, and store them. So, you must fulfill all the conditions to build a good house.
