Buying Crafting Cottages
When buying a crafting cottage, it is important to buy them in the right order. Depending on the order you purchase them they can cost you from nothing to 80 Farm Cash or they might even be locked.
The Bakery, Spa and Winery can be placed on any farm after the farm specific crafting cottages for ‘0 coins’. If you have the English Shipping License, then the English Pub can be placed on any farm after the farm specific crafting cottage for coins. It is not completely farm specific, but has a slight farm specific twist. The cost of the English Pub will be dependent upon the order in which it is placed . If it is placed on the farm first, you will pay 1,000 coins, if placed 2nd you will pay 10,000 coins or if placed 3rd you will pay 100,000 coins.
Farms from Lighthouse Cove on have a Farm Specific crafting cottage that ‘MUST’ be placed first for around 100,000 coins prior to any of the above 4 buildings. If you have try to place a farm specific crafting cottage on its farm with a cottage already placed or in the gift box then the market will show you a price of 80 Farm Cash.
The Aussie Winery and Sugar Shack can be placed on any farm for 100,000 coins providing the that there is no other crafting cottage placed on that farm or in the gift box. The only drawback to placing it on a farm that has a farm specific cottage is that you will not be able to place that farms cottage back for coins until the Aussie Winery or Sugar Shack are sold.
The Home Farm, English Countryside, Sunflower Meadows and Hanging Gardens have no farm specific cottages and would be the best places for an extra Aussie Winery or Sugar Shack.
After you have selected your first crafting cottage you can then place up to 2 more cottages on that farm for a total of three. The choices are the Bakery, Winery and Spa for 0 coins or the English Pub for coins (as mentioned above) and you cannot have 2 of the same building. Once you have 3 cottages on the farm the market will show ‘Locked’ in the market for any others.
The farm specific cottages include the Lighthouse Cove Restaurant, Winter Wonderland Sweet Shoppe, Hawaii Tiki Bar, Jade Falls Tea House, Haunted Hallow Potions Shop, Mistletoe Lane Patisserie, Enchanted Glen Fairy Kitchen, Atlantis Coral Café, Aussie Winery, Celestial Pastures Crystal Cottage, Sweet Acres Sugar Shack, Mystical Groves Alchemist Shop, Holiday Lights Sparkle Café, Fields of El Dorado Herbal Hut, Emerald Valley Porcelain Shop, Mediterranean Riviera Blue Sea Café, Oasis Gardens Cairo Boutique, Fairy Tale Fields Fairy Forum, Horseman's Hollow Witcher Hut , Magical Toy Town Toy Food Van., Avalon Wilderlands Glass Blower, Avalon The Kingdom Potions Workshop Wild West Ranch Village Workshop, Treasure Tides Tinker's Cabin, Savannah Safari Herbal Inn , Phantom Valley Sci Fi Lab and Alpine Jingle Eckhart's Mill.

The Crystal Cottage, Alchemist Shop, Sparkle Café, Herbal Hut, Porcelain Shop, Blue Sea Café, Cairo Boutique, Fairy Forum, Witcher Hut, Toy Food Van, Glass Blower, Potions Workshop and Village Workshop, Tinker's Cabin,Herbal Inn, Sci Fi Lab, Eckhart's Mill, Indian Dhaba Zen Garden House, Two Stone Mill, Oracles Keep, Brewing Wagon, Snowy Toy Shop, Crafting Tent and Crafter’s Shell are locked to their specific farms, so you can only do this trick by buying them back on the farm they go on.
If you must sell a crafting cottage to place the Farm specific cottage back the only thing you will lose are the items currently being made. The level of the Cottage and the Goods for Sale will be the same when you buy the cottage back.
