    The Artisan House can be used as a row house or built individually.  The front of the house has a door on the left, while the “back” has a door on the right; this allows you to use the façade you prefer for variety. It provides a place for 5 citizens to live, eat, store food, and stay warm. Provides the same warmth as stone houses.

    The humble Bakery – where powder covered Bakers toil in front of hot ovens creating delicious baked products for your people to eat. The food they make in their recipes is much healthier than just eating raw food from the harvest, and also becomes more abundant than just the raw ingredients.
     
    The wonderful smell of baking goods increases the happiness of those living near the Bakery.
     
    Newly designed for CC 1.7; the previous Bakery models are still available under Themed Sets > Old Buildings.

    Bamboo is not edible.  It can be grown in a Plantation field and uses the Dry Goods Limit. Seeds may be purchased from a merchant.  (If you grow it in a regular Crop Field, the Food Limit determines whether the field will be harvested.)
     
    Bamboo can be used by the Bundling Shed to make Fire Bundles.
