Unlocks After Building A House

In order to start the mission to build Nook's Cranny, you'll have to first build yourself a house! To do this, you'll have to pay off your first 5,000 Nook Miles loan!

Gather Lumber By Hitting Trees


Wood can be gathered by hitting trees with your Axe! It's entirely random which of the 3 types of wood will drop, so keep going until you've got all the mats! You can also gather wood by going on Mystery Island tours!

Gather Iron Nuggets By Hitting Rocks

Iron Nuggets

Iron Nuggets can be obtained when hitting rocks. There are a limited number of rocks on your island, which means the amount of Nuggets you can get in one day is relatively low. You can also gather iron nuggets from rocks in mystery islands!

Nook's Cranny will take only one day to build! If you're in a hurry, you can always change the time of your game.

You Can Move Nook's Cranny Later

Moving major buildings will be unlocked as you progress through the game, but it will cost a lot to do so. To access this, you'll need to unlock the Resident Services Building first!

A Different Hot Item Every Day

Nook Shop

In Nook's Cranny, every day one particular item will sell for a much higher price than usual. In fact, you will get double for selling it! The hot item of the day will be listed on the board to the right of the door.

Drop-Off Box Works 24/7

The drop-off box located to the left of the door is usable 24 hours a day. The money you get here will be deposited into your bank account directly the following morning. However, there is a handling fee, which means your items will only sell for 80% of their usual price. Additionally, once you put an item in, you can't get it back, and you can't sell Turnips this way.

Drop-Off Box Things To Remember

1Sell price is 20% lower than usual
2Items placed in the box can't be recovered
3Turnips can't be sold
4Hot Items won't sell for double

Turnips Can Be Sold

You need at least 30 days of play

Nope, selling hot items doesn't seem to have worked either.
Seems like the only thing left is either selling turnips or just waiting for some random chance thing to happen.

Myst Lunarbane 5

I've bought and sold over 500k bells worth of goods, have 2 bridges and inclines, and been playing since it came out, still no upgrade
The two things I haven't yet done are sell more than 2 hot items or sell any turnips.
So I just sold 28 hot items and I'll p.ost tomorrow if that unlocks it.

Anonymous 4

Some people are speculating its just 28 days after unlocking it
