Please can we have multiple player owned houses which are totally unconnected apart from the costume room?

At the moment we can have one house at one portal. Having multiple (maybe not 9, one at each portal, but 2-3) would allow for more variation in house design. It could even be one per estate agent.

My house currently contains one of every room arrayed in a fashion which is most expedient for getting to the rooms I want - alter opposite portal, workshop and aquarium either side and the rest in a kinda square. Efficient, yes, but not a nice house.

Another house could mean I have this boring and efficient one but also a nice one arrayed with only the rooms I think a house should have and looks nice. Or just two separate nice houses with different walls and times of day.

Most importantly (to me) would be being able to have another menagerie in a different style. There are five menagerie habitats: garden, jungle, desert, volcanic and polar and, more importantly, three pet houses. Many of the possible pets suit different habitats better - for example: dragons are best in volcanic but penguins don't suit there at all and logically need polar. Multiple menageries would also allow people to get all the colour variations of each pet, such as all four lizards and the multiple monkey colour schemes. Currently, due to the 25 pet limit, you have to pick and choose which colour variation of each animal you display. This is due, I think, to a processing or other technical limitation but either way, more pets in there would be unwieldy so other menageries would be an improvement in every way.

Therefore, multiple houses would allow more personalisation and variation in how players get to construct their abodes and store their pets and I think it would be a nice improvement.

Thank you.

On a similar note, maybe the house teleport portals could lead to different house portals instead of the current options. They are currently pretty worthless with the advent of the lodestone network but a fast and easy teleport to Rimmington or Pollniveach's portals, which aren't really close to lodestones (still pretty close I grant you, but less than elseware) might breathe some more life into the portals. It might not though.

Well, since the nonsense 'update' that removed the ability to have duplicate pets in your PoH, I have to admit my enthusiasm for this has decreased. A volcanic themed menagerie housing only 1 red dragon, 1 red lizard, 1 sneaker peeper and 1 vulture is rather less impressive than my imagined ones holding an army of each.
Thanks Jagex for pointlessly removing a perfectly good and harmless feature and making player owned houses a little less good.
