How it's done (2)

Buildings are a core element of Foundation. To meet the medieval town inhabitants' needs, players must unlock and build new buildings. Players place construction sites by choosing from the 'Build Public Buildings' menu in the top right corner. All buildings require builders to build them.

Houses will be placed automatically by homeless villagers that are serfs or above, after unlocking and painting a Residential Area. They will also automatically be upgraded in level or density based on necessity and availability of resources. Most buildings have a Maintenance Cost.png Maintenance Cost once completed.

NOTE: When building over trees the trees will be cut down but will not be collected as a resource.


The following buildings are placed by players and need villagers assigned to work in them (except Well.png Well ).


The monuments consist of modular buildings the player can construct however he wishes. Different parts may have different functions.

NOTE: In order to make monuments taller, when you place a core or tower in your desired space there is a small green up/down arrow (Icon height.png Icon height ). Click on that and hold the mouse button down while moving it up and down to raise the height of your building to the desired level.


Purely decorative assets to beautify your town. Some can also be used to raise land value.


Next to the building menu is the 'Build Walls' menu. Walls block Villagers.png villagers pathing and are other wise only aesthetic. Currently, walls cost no materials and are built instantly.
