A Player Owned House (or POH) is a house owned and built by a player using the Construction skill. Construction is one of the most expensive skills in RuneScape because of the amount of coins needed to buy equipment and gain levels. Houses are very useful for most players as they give access to portals, easier ways to make experience in other levels and storing items such as pets, clothing and other equipment.
Building a HouseEdit
To a build a house, a player must first buy a house from an Estate Agent. These can be found in several major cities. Buying a house costs 1000 coins. Once a house is built, some items will be needed to start off. These are:
- Nails (with a lower Construction level)
More items can be used to make different things, but these are the basics. As you gain levels you will need more expensive equipment to make better objects, which will give you more experience.
To build a new room, a player must right click the door hotspot and choose a room. The player will be greeted with a list of rooms, each with a price.
|Room||Construction level required||Cost|
|Dungeon||70||7,500gp (per room)|
The rooms can be used for many purposes. For example, the Combat Room, Games Room and Dungeon Rooms are often used in house parties; the Dining Room is often used in a (Clan) meeting; and the Chapel is often used to level Prayer.

An open house is where a player opens their house to the public. The owner will let people use resources inside the house including chapel, portal room and playing areas such as the Dungeon, Games or Combat room.
