For another neohome guide for beginners, check out cytherea007's excellent Basic neohoming. To avoid problems in the layout of your home check The Neohome Adventures by chaotizitaet. Another useful source for beginners (or anyone who is trying to save neopoints) is spopsicles's Design on a Dime.

If you are beyond the beginner stage and looking to refine your neohoming talents, read beenerz's Neopian Times article on Advanced Neohoming. And if you are ready to embark on the fine art of tiling, check out Flash's Tile Tutorial by bruisedgreenapple.

Secret's Neohome Museum, an invaluable resource for neohomers, contains most of the furniture items available in Neopia. Here you can see them as they actually look in a neohome. There is also a subject index to the museum and a visual guide where you can see all the rooms on one page. The latter is especially useful when you are looking for something of a certain size, shape, or color.

To see how garden items actually look in a garden, go to Secret's Garden Display There is also an index and visual guide to Secret's Garden Display.

When the neohome muse has deserted you, you can seek inspiration at Amazing Rooms. Faeriechangling's collection of links to outstanding rooms and gardens, Neopian Street of Dreams, is no longer updated but still remains a useful source of inspiration. Beenerz's A Gnome's Guide to Great Gardens has thumbnail links to over 100 noteworthy gardens.

If you a frustrated by the lack of certain items for your neohome, it's time to improvise! Neohome Plans by benvolio_dude illustrates how to make several other items. And Creative Building Ideas illustrates and provides room links to many items "created" by neohomers.

Cloveapple's Neohome Letters Project page is an effort to coordinate the voices of neohomers in prodding Neopets to fix neohome problems or add new features. Don't miss the cool banners at the botton. We are neohomers, hear our roar!

For neohome help in other languages, see Neoheim Hilfe by maileth and Catalogo italiano del giardino by danymelly.

Relocating your neohome

It is now possible for you to change the neighborhood or world where your neohome is located. To do so you must demolish all your rooms and gardens. (Items in rooms will be returned to your inventory, but items in gardens should be removed before you demolish the garden.) When all rooms and gardens are demolished you will be given the option to sell your land back to the bank.

To sell your land click on 'Main' on the menu at the top of your neohome page. Then click on 'sell your property'. A window will open telling you how much the bank will pay you for your property. You will not receive full compensation but you will receive perhaps 1/3 of what you paid for the land, rooms and gardens. If you are sure you want to sell, click on the 'Process Sale' button.

Once the sale is completed you will be able to start over in a new world or try for a different neighborhood in the same world. Remember that you cannot select a neighborhood, so it's possible you may end up on the same street!

Neohomer wit and wisdom

if neohomes go 3D on us, i'm totally going 'alice in wonderland' on design. chairs on the tables, dressers in the bathtub, toilet water fountains. mess with my perception, i mess with your reality. -- magicmushroom31

In normal space, e=mc2. However, in NEOHOMING space, e=rf1/2 (energy=rooms and furni to 1/2 the intended result), proving that neohomes are actually what cause black holes. -- brennehilda

NEOHOMERS theme: "Until the 12th of never, I'll still be building you" -- gandolf251 (siggy)

NEOHOMES: Not for the faint of heart or the weak of wallet -- krazykutekowgirl (thread title)

I like homes that have "thought" put into them not just furniture. -- ladyraine

Neohoming is pain, highness, anyone who says differently has never tried tiling! -- avatarh

Ya build 16 rooms and what do you get? Yer neohomes bigger but youre deeper in debt... -- gandolf251 (siggy)

Neohome Spotlight

On November 11, 2003 neopets announced a new spotlight, the Neohome Spotlight. The first spotlight was awarded on November 14th. Between then and August 8, 2008 242 neohomers were featured in the spotlight.

On August 8, 2008 open beta testing for neohomes 2.0 began and on August 14, 2008 neopets announced that classic neohomes were no longer eligible for the Neohome Spotlight.

Below is a list of the 242 classic spotlight winners. Links are provided for those who still have neohomes, although their homes now may have changed since they won the spotlight.

March 8, 2001

NEOHOMES ARE HERE!!! - We just launched the Alpha Version of our NeoHomes. You can go ahead and start building today!!! We are still working on them so there may be a few bugs, but we should get those sorted asap.

Just in case you have any questions on the NeoHomes, we have updated our help file here.

[Note: There were no prior announcements about neohomes in the news. They just burst upon the scene on this date.]

March 9, 2001

NEOHOME UPDATE - Neohomes with 4 or more rooms can now be covered in wallpaper. Click here to see what upgrades you can buy!

Many more different styles of Furniture have gone on sale today, including some great matching suites :)

March 19, 2001

NEOHOME UPDATE - You can now remove items from your Neohome. When you look at your furniture there is a new button below the room view that allows you to pick an item to remove.

With the demand for furniture so high, some enterprising young Eyrie has been making his tables and beds out of Straw! Look in the Furniture Shop for these cheap alternatives to real furniture.

[Straw furniture was later moved to the Tyrannian furniture shop.]

March 26, 2001

BUG FIXES - ... Also, two people could get the same NeoHome address, thats been fixed also. We may have to change your address, so if your street number ends up changing please don't worry :)

March 28, 2001

BUG FIX - Now you can view your furniture on every floor of your NeoHome, not just the ground floor.

March 29, 2001

NEOHOME UPDATE - Now the plot of land you can build on has been expanded from 16 base squares to 20! Happy Joy!

March 30, 2001

May 30, 2001

In preparation for the NeoHome Gardens, we are redoing a lot of the items in the Gardening Shop today. As most of the items like the spades and trowels are useless, they are being replaced with plants that you will be actually able to put in your garden!

June 1, 2001

MORE PLANTS have been added to the Garden Center in preparation for the NeoHome Gardens, one of many exciting upgrades we have planned for the Neohomes.

Aug 20, 2001

Some of the older items on the site (that won't be named *ahem*) have been replaced with these cool UsukiCon posters!!

[NOTE: Posters were not neohome items until August 2003.]

Some of the garden items are still being uploaded, so if you see any broken images, don't worry they will be fixed soon!

May 6, 2002

Neogarden Update - There was such a huge demand for Neohomes and Neogardens over the weekend that some construction had got stuck. This has been sorted out now and they should all be finished shortly. If you've paid and are waiting, just be patient and your construction will be finished soon!

I'm working as fast as I can!

May 7, 2002

You can now build Neohome rooms and gardens again!

May 16, 2002

UPDATE : NeoSchools are in progress now, and we are also going to add some more NeoGarden items very soon. We just have to finish off a rather cool flash game and then NeoSchools should be able to go live, give it a couple of weeks :)

May 31, 2002

June 20, 2002

You can now make your Neohome the envy of all your friends with this super stylish Tyrannian Furniture!

[NOTE: Excepting the pottery, which came out three weeks earlier, these were the first furniture items to be released in over a year.]

Aug 23, 2002 You are now able to build your Neohome in Meridell!

Sept 3, 2002 We apologise, Meridell IS actually comprised of lush green meadows and not small white boxes with red x's in. Neohomes should now be working normally!

[Note: Land in Meridell looked identical to Neopia Central for some time.]

Sept 11, 2002

We have a couple of problems with Neohomes, so if yours vanishes of the face of Neopia, don't worry about it, it will be fixed soon!

Oct 30, 2002

This week's Neohome Spotlight was awarded to cytherea007. Neohomers were stunned by this beautiful home which introduced a new creative flair to neohoming with its extensive tiling, items made out of other items, outdoor elements inside rooms, and interesting room connections. It raised the bar and influenced serious neohomers from that time forward.
