A stonestead is a large structure which can be entered. Middle floor and upstairs are 8x5 tiles, cellar which needs to be built and dug separately is 8x7. Anything liftable left in a stonestead will not decay, with the exception of animal carcasses, making it a good storage area especially for Cupboards, which are notorious in being destroyed in one decay hit. Because of this, most houses tend to hold cupboards, which are excellent storage containers once the downsides has been negated with housing. Any items that can go into the inventory dropped here can still be lost, however.


Color and materials that the building is made from differs with items used in construction. Blocks colour seems to be the inner one (verify).

How to Acquire

The Stonestead needs a minimum flat area of 6x10 tiles, even though the actual building size is only 5x9. Paving may be required for some terrains. For help on how to flatten land and lay stone, see terraforming.

Like other housing, a freshly constructed Stonestead will start with very little soak, which will slowly increase to full over the course of 3 real-time days.
