Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Player Builds Floating Tarrey Town House


  • Tears of the Kingdom allows players to build Link’s Tarrey Town house with a floating floor, pushing the limits of the game’s homebuilding mechanics.
  • Constructing a hook-like shape taller than the height limit and submitting the building layout to Granteson creates a suspended, floating floor in midair.
  • The technique allows for constructing up to six rooms on the floating floor, but there are limitations such as the floor crashing upon re-entering build mode and the inconvenience of accessing it.

One The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player managed to expand Link’s Tarrey Town house with a floating floor. The building mechanics in the follow-up to Breath of the Wild, allowing Tears of the Kingdom players to create machines for farming enemies, unicycles that tower into the sky, and all manner of interesting creations.

While Breath of the Wild only offered home furnishing, Tears of the Kingdom allows players to build a custom house for Link from the ground up. And though the game’s home construction mechanics come with limitations, plenty of fans have already managed to put together some extremely creative housing since the game hit store shelves on May 12.

The latest example of such inspired engineering was authored by Reddit user Bagel_enthusiast_192, who found a way to construct a floating house by pushing the limits of the Tears of the Kingdom homebuilding mechanics. Following some experimentation, the player realized that the game imposes a hard cap on how tall a given house can be. However, that limit is only enforced after Link submits the building layout to Granteson. Once that happens, the game will simply delete any floors that are too high despite the fact that Granteson won’t object to the submission.

Bagel_enthusiast_192 realized that they can use this to create a floating floor by building an upright hook-like shape whose top goes over the height limit. Doing so makes the game delete the bent part of the construction, leaving its previously hanging floor suspended in midair. Based on the brief gameplay clip showcasing this design in action, it would appear that the maximum allowed housing height is equivalent to six vertically stacked 2×1 blocks. Therefore, constructing a hook-like shape that’s seven such units tall should be sufficient to recreate this engineering feat.

Since Tears of the Kingdom limits custom homes to 15 housing blocks, this technique should allow constructing floating floors that contain up to six rooms. The downside of this method is that it further restricts Link’s house to 12 units, seeing how three of them will always be deleted upon submission. Bagel_enthusiast_192 also confirmed that the floating floor will immediately crash upon re-entering the game’s building mode. Additionally, accessing the airborne part of the house seems to be fairly inconvenient, as it requires using Tears of the Kingdom‘s Ascend ability five consecutive times before the player is able to jump over to that section.

Then again, the 15-unit limit will by itself already force most players wanting to build tall houses to design their homes with Ascend in mind. This was previously illustrated by another Tears of the Kingdom player who built an impressive three-story house whose premises featured plenty of amenities, but only included a single staircase, thus requiring Link to Ascend to its third floor.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available on Switch.
