Securely replace house

CityKitty

Visitor
Now, I know that things never mean what you think they mean in UO, so I came here for clarification. I placed over an IDOC a while back and it wasn't actually the house I wanted. It's nice but the rooms are a problem for me. Having noticed the "securely replace this house" option on the sign, I am wondering if that means I can replace my house, which is one of the "designer" ones, with a different one of the same size. Before you laugh, I my defense, I offer that I have been away from the game for many, many moons and trying hard to catch up.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, you can also go back to the *classic* style...for example, if you have one of the contest design keeps and want to go for either another design OR go back to the original classic keep, you use the *Securely replace* function.

Before you do that, you have to remove all house add-ons, gozas and granite add-ons such as floor tiles and walls.

Here is a 20 second video I did of how smooth the process is

Also note the contents of my backpack in the video. It was a pain taking all of the things down that you have to but the process is painless :)

That's great news! Last thing I expected was that it really meant what I hoped it meant! It does look painless, as you say, aside from having to remove everything. Thanks so much for the reply! Now, I need to find pictures of these homes. This will be an exciting day indeed.

Oh yes, I will do that, tho I am not the best decorator but I do get a lot of great ideas from the people I've found here. Thank you, by the way!
