If it isn't you can alway disassemble it and use the materials to create something useful.
When making upgrades to rooms always prioritise the most important ones first, these will be the Roger's Place and the Situation Room. These are the most important rooms because they are needed in order to have more fighters and to build more facilities and rooms. Check out our Situation Room Guide to find out more about this room and the other rooms in the Smith house along with the level requirement to unlock them.
Free Room Upgrades
If a room will take less than 10 minutes until completely built / upgraded you can benefit from a free build / upgrade bonus if you tap on the button which lets you upgrade it for free. This applies to any room where there is 9.59 minutes or less left until it is fully built / upgraded. Pay attention to this as it is an easy and free way to make upgrades.
Hire a Helper
A hired helper will gather resources and complete training while you are offline. If you are going to be offline for a period of time you may want to consider investing in one. Reginald Koala can be at your service for 3 days at the cost of 150 golden turds, 7 days for 250 golden turds, or 15 days for 450 golden turds. The other helpers must be purchased using real money, but they are permanent. These helpers are 'Man's Best Friend', which is a French Bulldog, Simon the cat, and Larry and Floyd, which is a turtle with a hampster on its back.
