"From the Ground Up"

"Hylian Homeowner" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Behind the abandoned house in Hateno Village, Link can find Bolson.[2] If Link asks what he is doing, Bolson explains that he is demolishing the building, as nobody wants to live in it.[3] Link can offer to buy the house, though Bolson is suspicious of his ability to do so.[4]

Bolson informs Link that the house has been vacant for years,[5] and the people of Hateno Village decided to pay Bolson Construction 50,000 Rupees to take it down.[6] Therefore, to buy the house, Link would need to pay that amount.[7] However, he decides to lower the cost to 3,000 Rupees and 30 bundles of Wood.[8][note 1] Once Link is aware of the terms,[10] Bolson stops Hudson and Karson's demolition work.[11] This begins the Side Quest.

After Link has gathered the Wood bundles, he can return to Hateno Village to deliver them.[12] He realizes that Link is serious about the house and agrees to accept the 3,000 Rupee payment.[13]

When Link is able to pay the 3,000 Rupees, Bolson is at first shocked to hear that he is not lying.[14] If Link asserts his willingness, Bolson will accept the payment.[15] He thanks Link for his investment and compliments his ability to spend so much money at his age.[16] As a housewarming gift, Bolson allows Link to keep the Weapon Mount inside that never sold.[17]

Bolson remarks that he has a job lined up in Akkala for Hudson,[18] which involves clearing some land.[19] If Link wants to say anything to Hudson, he should speak to him before he leaves.[20]

After Hudson has left, Bolson suggests that it is time for the two of them to relax.[21] However, from Link's face, Bolson realizes that he thinks they should continue to work on the house,[22] specifically addressing the fact that the house is empty.[23] He offers to take care of additions for 100 Rupees.[24]

The list of each addition is as follows:

Gear DisplayInstallationsHouse Exterior
Object Quantity
Weapon mount. 2
Bow mount. 3
Shield mount. 3
Object Quantity
Bed. 1
Lighting. 1
Door. 1
Object Quantity
A sign with my name! 1

The total cost of all the additions is 1,400 Rupees. Once Link has purchased all of the additions, Bolson will be surprised by his drive..[25] As a reward, he adds extra Furniture to Link's House, such as a dining table, storage boxes underneath the staircase and a cabinet.[26] This will complete the Side Quest, leaving Bolson to wonder how Hudson's expansion project is doing.[27]


Stage Description
1 You can buy a house in Hateno Village!

Bolson, president of Bolson Construction, offered to slash his original asking price of 50,000 rupees down to 3,000 rupees if you also throw in 30 bundles of wood.

What are you waiting for? Gather the wood and bring it to him!
2 You gave Bolson his wood and got him to slash his asking price for an old-fashioned home from 50,000 rupees to 3,000 rupees.

When you have the 3,000 rupees saved up, talk to Bolson again to close the deal.
3 You bought a house in Hateno Village for 3,000 rupees! Bolson generously furnished a weapon rack inside your empty home as a housewarming gift.

The place is still pretty bare, though. If you talk to Bolson, he might be able to help you with that.
4 Bolson offered to sell you furniture! Not only that, he'll also remodel your home's exterior!

Renovate your home with furniture and style to be the envy of your new neighbors!
Complete You ordered lots of furniture and exterior knickknacks, and your house is finally a home.

Bolson seems pretty relieved to have finished such a big job.
