The New Log Home Continent Opening Pretty Soon


New Log Home Continent Opening Soon

It’s estimated there will be around 4, 000 new log homes becoming available within the next few weeks. The new log home continent is a huge land mass and it’s currently being worked on by the Moles. There will be new community areas, waterways, roads and much more.

A closer look

Latest Updates

  • The regions are closed to the public as of now
  • The continent coastlines have to be completed around the edges & new homes built/new water areas
  • New red squares are dotted around the continent (work in progress)
  • When regions are named the regions are ready to go live
  • There are 10 theme styles the lab are looking at for future Linden homes

On 15th April 2020 it will mark one year since the first Linden Homes were officially opened. Just look how small the Bellisseria continent was back then with only 384 regions.

We now have Traditional, Houseboats, Campers and Victorian homes. Soon there will be Log homes with many more new styles in the distant future. The Bellisseria continent is expected to grow in the months ahead. Very exciting indeed for all those that staying up to date with the latest new developments. 

I’m super excited for the release.

The wait is almost over.
