Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Country House.

Country House is cheapish family friendly housing.


Upon completion, these buildings come with an old steel drum and left-over lumber. They may accumulate clothes-lines, trash and/or a trash-can. External visuals are of a hastily constructed cottage; though internally, there was probable more effort to make it family friendly. Not ideal living conditions as per western standards; little privacy is likely offered to children, as communal spaces would be the norm.

In-Game Text


"The average Caribbean paisano will appreciate these middle-class houses. They are quick to build and inexpensive, but offer space for two families."


"A small house with moderate comforts."


These can fit into the awkward spaces behind a garage or near a workplace that attracts Shacks. Rent can be set to make it 'attractive' to lower income households as Upkeep is low.

While handy for awkward situations; Apartments would be a wiser chose given the island space used per tenant ratio.

Even a Tenement, near a Guard Tower or Police Station, would be preferred as generic housing for the economically challenged.
