What is House Customization?

Change The Exterior of Your House

ACNH - House Exterior.png

House customization is the ability to change the exterior of your house. While you pay your loans to upgrade the size of your home, you will also get the ability to upgrade its exterior appearance.

The customization options are available for your roof, mailbox, door, and siding.

Move Your Mailbox

ACNH - Tom Nook Change Mailbox Location.png

After the 6th house upgrade, which unlocks siding customization, you will also unlock the ability to move your mailbox.

To do so, simply pick it up with the Y button, and place the item from your pockets, like you would do with any other furniture.
