Figuring out how to upgrade your Disney Dreamlight Valley house might not seem like a big deal at first, but once you start collecting more recipes and crafting furniture, that initial house will start to get small pretty quickly.

Getting your first house upgrade is pretty easy, but after that you’re on your own. After all, someone has to boost the economy of the village.

How to get the first house upgrades

The path to your first home extension is relatively easy, although it will take a little time. You need to Start Scrooge McDuck’s Quest Valley Economics 101, which you can start by investing 1,000 coins in his shop. The next two steps of the quest are basically tutorials on how to craft and place furniture in the valley. He asks you to use small piles of wood found in the valley to create and put up signs for his shop and then pick flowers and make flower pots.

After that you must Sell ​​Goofy seven gems of any kind. Mining nodes regenerate fairly quickly in Disney Dreamlight Valley, but the chance of finding a new node that guarantees a gem seems pretty slim, at least until the next day. Any gems you’ve sold to Goofy before this point won’t count, so it may take a little longer to complete this step.

once it’s done, talk to Scrooge again. This time, he upgrades your house for free, expands your main room, and installs a feature that also lets you request more upgrades—for a price.

All future upgrades cost a significant amount of coins. You can expand your main room twice:

  • First expansion: 1,000 coins
  • Second expansion: 2,000 coins

You then have the option to add three more rooms, much like how your house grows in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with two on each side and one in the back. These can also be expanded.

  • 6×6 room: 1,000 coins
  • 8×8 room: 2,000 coins
  • 10×10 room: 3,000 coins

In short, it costs quite a bit of money to maximize the size of your home on the ground floor, but there’s more you can do with your home extensions.

Exterior home improvements

You can also make the exterior of your house more chic after upgrading the interior for the first time. That means no more staring at boarded-up windows, but more importantly – and somewhat inexplicably – it also means there’s more room in your storage boxes.

Each exterior upgrade unlocks a new storage row in your chests, and so far this is the only way to increase the capacity of storage chests.

The second and third exterior upgrade also adds a new floor to your home.

First exterior upgrade

  • 2,000 coins
  • exterior improvement
  • Increased storage

Second exterior upgrade

  • 20,000 coins
  • exterior improvement
  • Increased storage
  • Second floor

Third exterior upgrade

  • 75,000 coins
  • exterior improvement
  • Increased storage
  • Third floor

That’s a lot of money, so don’t plan on having your dream Disney mansion right away.
