The Cabin is a farm building that houses 1 farmhand in a Multiplayer game. Up to 3 cabins can be chosen at the start of a new co-op game, in "Nearby" or "Separate" layout. Up to 3 total cabins can also be added to a new or saved game, by visiting the Carpenter's Shop and choosing "Construct farm building" from the menu.

If chosen at the start of a Multiplayer game, cabins are free. If built on an existing farm, the cost is Gold.png100g for each of the 3 varieties of Cabin, plus the building materials listed in the table below. Cabins are built instantaneously upon purchase.

A farmhand moves into a cabin by picking up the Parsnip Seeds left by Mayor Lewis on the floor of the cabin.

Cabins can be demolished by the host at any time, by visiting the Carpenter's Shop (or Wizard's Tower, if the player has unlocked the magic buildings). This will permanently remove the player who occupies the cabin from the game. The player's inventory (other than tools) will appear in a chest in place of the demolished cabin.


Each cabin may be upgraded three times, for the same cost as upgrading the Farmhouse. Only the farmhand who occupies the Cabin may upgrade it. Each upgrade normally takes 3 days to complete.


The interior of a cabin is identical to that of the main Farmhouse.

Farmhand Inventory

A farmhand's inventory can be accessed by the host player in a Multiplayer game by looking in Mayor Lewis' Manor in the Lost and Found box.


The game automatically chooses the style and location of cabins, if cabins are chosen at the start of a new game. If purchased from the Carpenter's Shop, the player can choose which style to build, and where to place them.
