The Estate Agent

estateagent location.jpg
Location of the Estate Agent

To build a house, you will first need to buy a plot. To do this, you need to visit the Estate Agent in Varrock, Falador or East Ardougne.

The exact location of the agent in Varrock is shown to the right. He can sell you a house, magically redecorate it or move its location.

If you are stuck, he also provides a useful book to guide you through the processes.

For a cost, the Estate Agent can redecorate your house, depending on your Construction level.

The Sawmill Operator

Location of the Sawmill Operator

To build furniture you will need planks and a saw. These can be purchased from the Sawmill Operator who is found near the Lumber Yard, north-east of Varrock.

The Sawmill Operator will sell useful items such as saws, cloth and nails. Most useful of all, he will turn logs into planks for a fixed price per log.

The fastest way to the sawmill operator is using the earth altar teleport from the wicked hood. This will teleport you a few steps south of the Operator.

The Stonemason

Location of the Stonemason

To build more impressive furniture, you may find you are in need of materials like limestone bricks, gold leaf (130k each), marble blocks (325k each), or even magic stones (975k each!)

All of these can be found by trading with the Stonemason, found in his house in south-west Keldagrim.

The Gardener

Location of the Gardener

Found in Falador Park, the Gardener will happily sell you bagged plants, flowers and trees.

You can use these trees in the same manner that you build furniture. Take a plant to a garden hotspot and build it there if you have the correct plant.

You will also need a watering can with water in it to help the plant settle into the new soil.

The Taxidermist

Location of the Taxidermist

If you are lucky as you slay certain beasts of RuneScape, you may notice the head (or hand!) of a recently killed monster appears next to you on the floor. Occasionally you may also catch curiously large fish while fishing.

On occasions like this, you should take this head/fish and some coins to the Taxidermist in Canifis. She can preserve the head/fish, so you can mount it on your wall (given you have the correct Construction level).

When you have mounted the head in your skill hall, you can talk to it for a little bit of fun, or just to show your friends your accomplishments.

The Herald

Location of the Herald

Found in the White Knights' Castle, Sir Renitee can sell you maps and portraits, or amend your family crest.

The portraits and maps you can buy are based upon your quest achievements. For example, you cannot buy a map of Morytania if you have not completed certain quests in that area.

If you speak with Sir Renitee you will find out your family crest. If you do not want the one given, you can pay him to change it. The family crest you have chosen will appear around your house. It will be emblazoned on decorative shields, banners, helmets and decorations you make in your house.
