Pig houses look pretty different here.


Town Houses are naturally-spawning structures exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. They are the homes of various Pig Traders, and can be found in large numbers in pig city areas. They have several different styles that they appear in. Its Pig Trader will attempt to return to it each evening, and if it is occupied it will emit a small light that is enough to avoid Charlie. As with most structures in the Pig cities, Town Houses will be adorned with decorations while its residents are celebrating the end of an Aporkalypse. Pig Traders respawn after 3 days if killed.

The player can also craft their own Town Houses using the Key to the City and its City Planning crafting tab, using four Boards, three Cut Stone, and four Pig Skin. When crafted, the house will have a random appearance from a selection of appearances. If the player builds a My City Hall in addition to a Town House, the Pig that owns the house will periodically pay the player taxes. See My City Hall for more info.

Each town house will spawn a random Pig Trader when first built. The style of the house does not affect the Pig Trader spawned, and each outcome is equally likely. Any time that the Pig Trader who owns the house dies, another Pig Trader of the same type will respawn after three days.

Should the Town House be hammered down or burnt, then the Town House can be rebuilt with a hammer. In order to permanently destroy a Town House and regain half the spent materials, one must use the Executive Hammer.


  • If one wants to build a Pig City in a vanilla Don't Starve or Reign Of Giants world, one will need to bring the Key to the City through the Skyworthy and start by building these houses. As Werepigs are an easy source of Pig Skin, it shouldn't be long until the player has enough houses to get a healthy income from the Traders.
