Building Repairs and Upgrades - Harvest Moon: Light of Hope Guide
One of your main tasks to restore Beacon Island back to the glory days is to repair the buildings which have been damaged by the storm.
This guide will give you an overview of which buildings can be repaired or upgraded in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, as well as any materials needed to do so.
That's right, now you not only work as a Farmer but at the same time you are a Carpenter.
Many of these buildings are fairly easy to repair, but some are difficult because it requires material from the mines.
By repairing the houses will make villagers come back to the Island, allowing you to continue the quest and rebuild the store.
Repairing a bridge will give you access or open a new area. While if you repair the Chicken Coop, Animal Barn, Fertilizer Bin, and Windmill, allow you to use it.
How to Upgrade Buildings in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope
There are 3 buildings that you can upgrade, i.e your House, Chicken Coop, and Animal Barn. If you want to upgrade all of that, you can ask the help from Doc's architect.
Talk to him when he is at home from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, except Sundays. For the material needed and cost, I will explain it in the table below.
The first upgrade of your house (large) will be available right after you repair Doc's house, while the second upgrade (giant), chicken coop, and the animal barn are available once you've finished the main story.
The Advantages of Upgrading Buildings
When you upgrade your house for the first time, you can pet Bobcat. Whereas if you've upgraded the house a second time, you can get married and have children.
On the other hand, the advantage of upgrading the coop/barn allows you to raise 15 animals from initially 5 only.
