Need info. on Customizing my Keep

My keep is currently in the original design that comes when you place it. It is packed full of stuff. Will there be any issues customizing the keep? Where will all my stuff go if I customize?

Thanks in advance !

I think one of the things that happens when costumizing is that everything on the first floor is wiped so make sure to empty that first.
But don´t quote me on that...

Yea, don't quote him. Sorry, but you're very wrong.

As far as I know, you should deed up any items that are deedable, but otherwise you'll be fine.

All deeded items and floor tiles need to be removed. Just keep looking until you can customize.

I take everything off the walls. I pack everything in containers so i can start fresh. I look at the floor plan of the new keep and make sure everything you leave is away from the new walls. Anything that would be in a wall goes to the moving crate.

Actually the customization process has gotten better, and all deeded items don't need to be removed like before....I"m not saying you won't lose something if you don't, but I recently customized and left quite a few things and they either went to the moving crate, or simply stayed put and were unaffected by the customization.

I just always box up everything... Your gonna want to move it around anyway... easier to just box it up.

Frankly, I'd love them to put an option into the house menu for "move all contents of the house to the moving crate", separate from the actual customization, That way, you could clear a house, then redecorate from the crate at your leisure.

Thanks for the help folks! Now my next question... how do I go about customize my keep?
I could not find any information on this at the player wiki or on stratics.

All my stuff from my Castle went into the moving crate when I switched floor plans.

When this is not grey, you can try to change it.

If you then get a message that you cant, you have an item below still in the house.

Here are the things you have to store away:

goza mats
crafted walls or pavers
carpets (double clicked on floor)
mannequins placed
steward
grass, sand, or snow tiles locked down
Deeded items

Also I believe mannequins will all be sent to the moving crate (at least mine were when I customized my house a little while back). Every single 1 (with their armor) was moved regardless of where it was. That was a bit of a PITA since I have like 10 suits of various event armor and had to resort it afterwards...would have been better if I just packed them up before customizing.

make sure you grab a housing tool & go stand outside pretend your placing & just look the designs ..maybe go to test center run around look see if any still public as you'll have to pay like 30 mil each transition its not like the old remodel your 18x18 & it all comes back ...i could be wrong but i lost 27 mil first time i did it with my keep when it came out ... switching the design

The new designs cost a lot more than the original. So yes they cost gold but you keep that value unless you trade it.
