How to Unlock an Animal House in LEGO Fortnite

No farm is complete without some animals roaming the place. If you want to recruit animals to your village then they will each need an Animal House to live in. To unlock the Animal House in LEGO Fortnite you will need to first upgrade your village to level 2. You can craft an Animal House from the build menu using 10 Wood.

Players have been asking for the ability to keep LEGO Fortnite animals in their village since the game was released and the wait is finally over. The 29.30 update introduced the ability to adopt animals and keep them at your homestead. You also have a brand new LEGO Fortnite animal to meet: the pig. So now you can recruit any of these four wild animals to come and stay at your village:

  • Cow
  • Pig
  • Chicken
  • Sheep

Each animal offers different resources such as Feathers, Mushrooms, Milk, and Wool, as well as Fertilizer. You can recruit up to seven animals in LEGO Fortnite but they each must have an Animal House to live in. Just like assigning beds to new villagers, each animal will only stay if they have a house assigned to them.

Once they have a place to stay, you can feed and care for them so they produce resources for you. This makes farming those specific resources so much easier as they are now right on your doorstep!
