Get Enough Paradise Planning Experience

ACNH - Vacation Home - Interior Design

It's currently unknown how many vacation homes you need to design for Paradise Planning, but we'll keep you updated as more information gets released!

Talk to Tom Nook

ACNH - Talk to Tom Nook

Once you get enough experience, talk to Tom Nook at your island's Resident Services and pitch the idea to remodel one of your existing villager's home!

Remodel Your Villager's Home!

ACNH - Choose a Villager.png

Choose a villager that you want to help with their home remodeling, and they'll happily agree!

Take note that some vacation-home design features are unavailable, such as room-size adjustments. We'll keep you up-to-date as more information about these restrictions are revealed.

Remodeling Bug

This bug has been patched in the Version 2.0.1 update.


A current bug exists in the game where remodeling a villager's home will not progress if the airport's gate is open.

To avoid this bug, it's best to close the gate and both local and online communications before attempting to remodel.

How to Fix the Remodeling Bug

To fix an existing remodeling bug, simply end your play session and close the game and then re-launch the game.
