How To Build Administration Buildings

Administration buildings will require a specific set of materials for you to build them, much like upgrading them. But Settler’s Camps don’t need to be built because they are automatically made for you once you make a settlement.

The materials that you need to make a Manor Building is:

  • Timber x5
  • Planks x20
  • Stone x25

Do keep in mind that you can’t relocate an administration building once they’re made so it’s crucial that you plan out the placement properly before you decide to build one.
