On Summer 1, Dunhill will visit your house in the morning. He was so inspired by how you constructed Rebecca's house that he has a great idea! Dunhill will tell you about his great town plan for you to do. He gives you his first plan and then some basic instructions: complete the plan and he'll give you the next one. He hopes that completing these town revitalization plans will entice new residents to move to the village.
This is the main story of the game; to complete the plans and make the village happy.
There are five Town Restoration Plans. You can access the current status of your assigned plan by selecting it from the main menu (press the X button). When you complete all of the tasks in the plan, Dunhill will visit your house and give you the next Restoration Plan. Sometimes he will also unlock areas as a reward for your hard work, such as the eastern-side and western-side of your farmland.
The game will clearly mark off the tasks as you complete them, and you can do the plan's task in any sequential order. Also, if you have already completed that task before receiving the Restoration Plan, it will automatically be marked off for you; you don't have to do it a second time.
For the items that you have to place out in the village, once you have finished the plan you can put the object back into storage if you'd like. For example, if you don't want 10 Bushes cluttering up your town, after you complete Town Restoration Plan #2 you can take some of them away.
Town Restoration Plan #1
This plan is fairly simple since it is your first one. Dunhill only has three tasks for you to complete:
Place 5 Ball Topiaries in the village
The blueprint for the Ball Topiary is 800 G at Rebecca's shop. To make each one, you need to combine 3 Small Branches, 1 Small Material Stone, and 3 Moondrop Flowers.
Place 10 Street Lights in the village
The Street Light blueprint is 1600 G at Rebecca's shop, and will require you to combine 1 Small Material Stone and 3 Iron. The Iron can be bought directly from Rebecca for 510 G each. You won't have the mine unlocked to get it yourself.
Place 3 Wooden Benches in the village
The Wooden Bench blueprint only costs 800 G at Rebecca's shop. It requires you to combine 5 Small Lumber to make a Wooden Bench. Small Lumber can be obtained by chopping Small Branches or you can chop down the leafy trees.
Town Restoration Plan #2
Now that you have proven you can handle basic tasks, Dunhill is going to start having you construct buildings.
Build the Newspaper Carrier House
This blueprint costs 2400 G at Rebecca's shop. You'll need 25 Material Stone, 50 Small Lumber, and 5 Copper. You can buy the Copper for 840 G each at Rebecca's shop or find it for free by going to the Forest and scrounging around by the blocked entrance of the mine. After you construct the house and place it, Tina will move in.
Build the Salon
Can't have a town without a place for villagers to get pretty! The blueprint for the Salon is at Rebecca's shop for 2400 G. You will need to combine 25 Material Stone, 50 Small Lumber, and 5 Iron. Allen will move in after the house has been set in the village.
- Place 10 Bushes in the village
The blueprint is 1600 G at Rebecca's shop. These green balls require you to combine 5 Small Branches, 3 Soil, 2 Weeds, and 1 Chamomile to make each one. Soil can be bought at Hana's shop for nothing (free!) and the rest of the items can be scrounged up in the Forest, River, or Mountain areas. Chamomile only appears as a wild item during Spring and Summer and Hana does not sell the seeds to grow it on your farm. If you are in Fall season when you get to this point, you may have to wait until next Spring to finish this task.
Ship 10 Honey
Shipping Honey, Flower Honey, or Royal Jelly will count towards the 10 pieces requirement, and the Star Rank of the Honey won't matter. Before you can ship Honey you need to be able to produce it! Buy the Beehive blueprint from Rebecca for 500 G and then combine 8 Small Lumber and 5 Honeycomb together. The problem you might face is the wild item, Honeycomb, does not appear during Summer or Winter. If you had not been hoarding Honeycomb during Spring or Fall, then you will have to wait for it to appear in the appropriate season.
After you have built a Beehive and placed it on your farm, place a Honeybee inside of it. The Honeybee can be found in the River or Forest areas during Spring, Summer, or Fall. Once the Honeybee is inside the Beehive, it will produce honey every 6 sunny days. Bees do not produce anything during Winter.
Unlock in the Cow Festival
On Spring 9, Neil will stop by your farm and deliver a cow. On Summer 4, Dunhill will stop by and announce that the Cow Festival will take place on Fall 4. Basically you don't have to do anything to finish this task other than keep your cow alive.
Town Restoration Plan #3
Time to build more houses and earn a lot of money!
Build the Cottage
The blueprint is 2400 G at Rebecca's shop. Building the Cottage requires 35 Small Branches, 25 Material Stone, 40 Lumber, and 5 Wool. After the house has been constructed, Rod will move in, and you can start to buy pets for your farm.
Build the Restaurant
It's nice to have a place to eat instead of always eating at home. The blueprint for the Restaurant appeared in Rebecca's shop for 2400 G once you started Town Restoration Plan #2, so if you're already built it then you're finished with this task. The Restaurant requires 50 Material Stone, 65 Small Lumber, 5 Brick, and 5 Mint. The Mint can be found in the wild areas during Spring, Summer, or Fall seasons. Brick can be found by checking the foraging tree stumps in the River and Mountain areas. Clement will move in after you've built his house.
Build the Inn
This building will bring three people to the village: Hossan, Niko, and Felicity (if you've also built the Restaurant for her). The blueprint is 2400 G at Rebecca's shop and requires 20 Small Material Stone, 80 Material Stone, 35 Lumber, 5 Silver, and 10 Glass Stone. The Silver and Glass Stone come from the mine so you will need to build the Doctor house and find the music sheet within his house to unlock the mine. Sometimes you can find Glass Stone by hitting the large tree trunks in the Forest, but you'll need the mine to find Silver.
Build the Clinic
Like the others, the blueprint is 2400 G at Rebecca's shop. Klaus' house will cost 65 Material Stone, 15 Small Lumber, 40 Lumber, and 3 Iron. Once it has been built you can unlock the mine to gather the materials necessary to finish building the Inn.
Earn 200,000 G by shipping goods
By now you've probably already met this task! Money is quite easy to earn in this version of Harvest Moon. Use Fertilizer to raise the Star Rank of your crops, raise your animals' friendship to increase the Star Rank of produced goods, and so on. You can even use Treats to increase the productivity of your farm animals.
Unlock the Sheep Festival
You can buy Sheep from Neil's animal shop once you reach Fall of year 1. After that the Sheep Festival will unlock on Winter 18.
Unlock the Music Festival
This festival will unlock after you have 15 villagers living in the town. This means you'll need the Inn, Restaurant, and Doctor house constructed to reach the 15 villager requirement if you haven't build the Tailors (Yuri's shop). The festival will take place on Spring 25.
Town Restoration Plan #4
You are over halfway finished! The town is beginning to look full and lively now, but your task list has also become larger.
Build the Eastern-style House
Rebecca's shop, 2400 G. This thatched-roof house requires 15 Material Stone, 80 Lumber, 20 Fodder, 1 Amethyst, and 5 Wheat. You'll need to get the Amethyst from the mine and grow the Wheat yourself. The seeds are at Hana's shop for 130 G each and Wheat can be grown in any season. It will take 28 days to mature if you water it once per day. Watering it twice per day will increase its growth rate. Smooth Soseki moves in after you've finished this house.
Build the Fantastical House
Just like before, the blueprint is for sale at Rebecca's shop for 2400 G. The Fantastical House needs 60 Material Stone, 60 Lumber, 10 Yarn Balls, 10 Glass Stone, and 5 Flourite. Yarn Balls are produced by putting Wool into the Cloth Maker machine, so you'll need to build the Maker Shed (20 Material Stone, 20 Lumber, 3 Brick, and 1 Amethyst) as well as the Cloth Maker machine (10 Small Material Stone, 5 Bottles from fishing, 2 Copper, and 3 Clippers). Michelle moves into the Fantastical House after you've placed it in the village.
Build the Travel Agency
This building will bring another three residents: Charles, Camellia, and their daughter Hina. The blueprint is for sale at Rebecca's for 2400 G. You need to construct it with 120 Material Stone, 10 Small Lumber, 10 Lumber, 10 Copper, and 10 Brick. After it has been built, you can start using the Travel Agency to go to far away lands to pick up wild items, fish, and blueprints.
- Place 1 Well in the village
The blueprint for the Well is 3200 G and requires 10 Material Stone, 5 Small Lumber, 5 Iron, and 5 Cotton Fabric. The Well can be used to fill up your watering can. Cotton Fabric is made by putting Raw Cotton in the Cloth Maker machine.
- Participate in the Gardening Show three times
The seasonal Gardening Show allows you to lay out a special area, either on your farm or in the village, where you can place objects together with the goal of impressing the Gardening Show judges. You will be asked on the 2nd of each season if you want to participate in that season's show. The Gardening Show takes place on the 11th if you activate it on the 2nd. For this task to be marked as cleared, you need to participate in three Gardening Shows. It won't matter how well (or poorly) your Gardening Space is judged.
Win a Harvest Festival, Intermediate Class
Harvest Festivals occur at the end of every season in four categories: Vegetable, Fruit, Flowers, or Other. You need to enter the Intermediate class in one of those four categories and be declared the winner. Your festival entry must have 3 stars or more to ensure a victory in the Intermediate class.
Unlock the Fireworks Festival
This festival will unlock once you have at least 20 villagers unlocked. If you build the three houses from this Restoration Plan, you'll be at 20 villagers without requiring Yuri, the Witch Princess, or Kosaboro to be unlocked. The Fireworks Festival takes place on Summer 25.
Unlock in the Foliage Festival
This event becomes available on Fall 25 after you have shipped 30 or more Potatoes and 30 or more Yams. Potatoes grow during the Spring season and Yams grows during Fall, but the seeds for Yams aren't for sale at Hana's shop until year 2. Work on shipping Potatoes, since those seeds are available starting in year 1. If you use the Nintendo wifi system you could ask for Yam Seeds from one of your registered Friends or receive the seeds from a random player. You also have a chance of winning Yam Seeds from the seasonal Harvest festivals.
Earn 500,000 G by shipping goods
This may seem like a lot of money, but it actually isn't that much. If you're not sure how much you've earned, check the Bookshelf inside of your farmhouse for your overall income profit.
Town Restoration Plan #5
The last one, and it is larger than the previous one! Once you've completed this project then Dunhill's great dream will be fulfilled.
Build the Bungalow
This will be Olivia's house once you've completed it. The price for the blueprint is the same as the others; 2400 G at Rebecca's shop. The Bungalow requires 35 Black Material Stone, 60 Black Lumber, 15 Glass Stone, 3 Jade, and 5 Amethyst.
Build the Exotic Mansion
The blueprint for the mansion cost 5600 G from Rebecca and requires a lot of materials: 260 Material Stone, 120 Lumber, 10 Gold, 6 Adamantite, and 5 Mithril. Once constructed, Amir and Sanjay will move to the village. Amir does not live in town during Fall, so if you build the Exotic Mansion during Fall then they won't move in until Winter.
Build the Tailor's Shop
The blueprint for Yuri's shop is available at Rebecca's after you have started Town Restoration Plan #3, so you may already have built it before it became a requirement in Town Restoration Plan #5. The Tailors required 35 Material Stone, 60 Lumber, 10 Iron, and 5 Mint. Yuri lives and eats at Emma's house and not at the Tailor shop.
Place 1 Watchtower in the village
This object isn't really a tower but a raised platform you can walk on. The blueprint is at Rebecca's for 2400 G and it requires 10 Small Material Stone, 10 Material Stone, 10 Black Material Stone, and 1 Crystal. It does take up a 6 x 8 area of land so make sure you've cut down some trees or cleared an area for it to go.
- Place 1 Table and 1 Garden Chair in the village
These blueprints are at Rebecca's shop for 4000 G and 2400 G. The Table will cost you 3 Yarn Ball, 3 Cotton Fabric, 2 Glass Stone, and 7 Iron. The Garden Chair is only 1 Yarn Ball, 1 Cotton, and 1 Iron. You can't sit in any of the chairs around the Table but you can sit in the Garden Chair.
- Place 1 Lavish Fountain in the village
At Rebecca's shop for 5600 G, the fountain requires 30 Material Stone, 10 Pearls, and 5 Crystals. Pearls can be found by traveling to the Southern Island and checking the island in the middle of the ocean that you can hop over rocks to reach. It will take you several trips to the Southern Island to collect 10 Pearls. If you want to save some money, save your game before you spend 10,000 G at the Travel Agency and if you don't find a Pearl that day, reload your save game and try again another day. You can also catch Pearls at the Fish Trapping spot in the southeast corner. When using a Fish Trap, you can catch up to five of a single item at once.
Unlock the Snow Festival
This festival becomes available after you have unlocked 23 villagers, which won't be a problem at this point. The festival takes place on Winter 4 between noon and 2:00 pm. Since there only a two hour window to enter the festival, make sure you don't forget!
Unlock in the Yak Festival
Yaks can be bought from Neil's animal shop starting in Winter of your first year for 20,000 G each. After you own a Yak, the Yak Festival will become available on Spring 18.
- Win an Animal Festival, Advanced Class
Probably the easiest way to accomplish this task is with the Chicken Festival on Fall 21. If you enter a Silkie chicken with 10 hearts of friendship and 0 stress, you've a pretty good chance of winning. Chickens don't get dirty and it is easier to manage their stress levels. Any of the animal festivals will complete this task though, so it doesn't hurt to try winning the Advanced class with your other livestock.
Earn 1,000,000 G by shipping goods
You aren't being asked to earn an additional 1 million on top of the other 500,000 G and 200,000 G you've already earned. This simply means you have to earn another 500,000 G for the Town Restoration Plan #5 task requirement. Grow crops on Soil Plots and work on increasing the crops' size to earn more money for shipments.
After you have completed the last Restoration Plan, you have completed the game's story line. The villagers will gather together for a celebration party and even the Harvest Goddess and her sprites will appear to thank you for all the hard work you've done. After that the game credits will roll and you'll appear back inside of your farmhouse the next morning. The game will continue to play on, but you won't receive any new plans from Dunhill.
As a reward for completing the town revitalization, you will have a trophy added to the shelf by the front door of your farmhouse. You can also give Echo Village a new name.
