OK, so I'm browsing through the different housing zones and I see that for standard houses 5 exterior hooks come with the house, but, in reality it looks like you can only put 4 items on the outside. I don't get it, why sell you 5 outdoor hooks but then only have 4 available? Just a little frustrating.
Also, in the elven area, in the standard houses can you change the appearance of the walls? Not just the paint color but the actual standard appearance of the walls?
Thanks again for helping this newbie!
Just wanted to add that I have bought a house in the Bree homesteads area, but being new to the game, I never thought to look for the other housing areas prior to buying. I actually discovered the Bree homesteads because a friend invited me over to her house. Anyhow, when I got my house I had thought it said 5 exterior hooks, but I was only able to put 4 trees outside, so I figured I just bought a house that had only 4 exterior hooks.
Then as I started exploring the the other housing areas I saw for sale signs that said 'includes 22 interior hooks and 5 outdoor hooks'. So I decided to check out how other people were decorating their yards, that 's when I noticed that houses that were supposed to have 5 outdoor hooks, people always only had 4 items in their yards.
I don't get it and it's really bugging me. Or ... is a 'large' yard decoration considered 2 hooks?
