I have a few questions. Please help!

1. How do I get a chicken coop or barn?
- I cut all the wood and it's in my rucksack, but when I look in my inventory it says LUMBER: 0. And I need 500 to build a chicken coop. How do I do this?
2. How - or when - do I get a horse?
- In the original games, you either already have a horse, or Barley shows up with one. There's a little stable for my horse(s), but I don't have one.
3. I can't find anything, or anyone.
- It's very confusing. The map doesn't help me. I don't know what the place is because there are no signs. It's okay because I can order stuff from the telephone, but if I want to give someone something for their birthday, I can't find them.
4. Are there any festivals?
- I'm not sure. Are there the classic Cow Festivals and Horse Races?
5. What do I do?
- I know the game. You raise animals, raise crops, get a girl to marry you, bla bla bla, but in this game, I am so clueless of what is happening that I can't do anything. What can I do?

I know I sound like a total noob, but please help! I like this game. I'd like to keep it that way!

Thank you very much.

1. Okay. Lumber IS chopped wood!
2. Summer 22nd I think on the first year. You have to ship a certain number of items I don't know what that number is tho.
3. What do you mean you can't find them? Look on the map and it will show you where you are maybe that will help. But maybe you have some weird glitch I've heard about. Throw your dog ball into the pond so the mayor will come and give it back you. See if that works.
4.yes. Look on your calander to see when they are.
5. Thats basically the game. You also have to rescue harvest sprites and the harvest goddess.

1. To get a chicken coop/barn you need to ring Gotz the woodcutter on the phone in your house. And the lumber is only counted in your inventory if you have lumber shed and the lumber is in it.
2. You need to ship 1000 items via shipping bin then takakura will stop by your house one morning with it.
3. If you look in your instruction manual there is a map.
| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Rough outline of map you would see on Ds
|_____|___|______|_______| screen. Split into sections.
| 5 | 6 |
| 7 | 8 |
| 9 |

>>In section 1: Is the villa Where Romana, Lumina, Sebastion lives and to the left a cottage where the Witch Princess lives.
>>In section 2: Is your farm and Takakuras house.
>>In section 3: Is the sprite tree and Goddess Pond. Mukumuku lives in the branches of the sprite tree and comes out in winter only. Also murrey lives in the branches of the sprite tree. Sprites live in the tree obviously.
>>In section 4: Is a tent where Flora and Carter live and the mines/site. Also behind the waterfall is the entrance to the super crop field. You can only get rid of the stones with the legendary sword.
>>In section 5: Is the village/main path. There are 3 houses: in the far left is where Wally, Chris and Hugh live, the middle is where Grant and Kate live and the one on the right is where Dr. Hardy lives.
Also there's the Blue Bar where Muffy and Griffin live and the Inner Inn where Ruby, Nami, Rock and Kai (in the summer) lives. Also Van visits this palce on the dates with a 3 or an 8 at the end i.e 3rd, 18th, 23rd
>> In section 6: Is vesta's farm where Vesta, Marlin and Celia live. Also the path to mineral town is in the far right.
>> In section 7: In the far left is a building on legs is where Kassey and Patrick live. The building with spheres on to the right of Kassey and Patricks place is where cody lives, to the right of cody is turtle pond. Above turtle pond is Daryls Lab where Daryl and Leia the Mermaid live. And to the far right is the house where Gustafa lives.
>> In section 8: At the centre is the house where Nina and Galen live. To the far right is the construction site where one day the circus will be where Barney and Mimi live.
>> And finally in Section 9 is the beach.

4. Yes there are festivals. Look at your calender or in the manual.
Spring: 1st New years festival, 14th Spring Thanksgiving, 18th Duck festival, 22nd Cooking festival.
Summer: 1st Beach opening, 7th Chicken festival, 20th cow festival, 24th fireworks.
Fall/Autumn: 9th Harvest festival, 21st Sheep festival, 30th pumpkin festival
Winter: 14th winter Thanksgiving, 24th starry festival, 25th stocking festival, 30th New year celebration

5. You are a farmer, it's basically a life on a game as a farmer.

After all that I hope I was helpfull.
