This complete 1-99 osrs construction guide contains every method you can use to get 99 as fast as possible.
Construction is a buyable skill. This means that in order to advance in construction, you need to put in money. You should not consider getting 99 construction if you don’t at least have 150m to throw away.
Why you should train construction
Quests that require construction level
|Quest||Construction level Required|
|Darkness of the hallowvale||5|
|The eyes of glouphrie||5|
|Tower of life||10|
|The Fremennik Isles||20|
|The great brain robbery||30|
|Making friends with my arm||35|
|Dragon slayer 2||50|
|Song of the elves||70|
The highest construction level required for a quest is level 70 for Song of the Elves. You can get to level 70 construction for about 7-8M using Oak Larders.
Useful rooms to have in your P-O-H
|45||Chapel||Gilded altar (75 construction required) can give you 350% prayer experience when both burners are lit.|
|50||Portal Chamber||If you have the required magic level for the teleport you can add portals to different locations.|
|65||Superior Garden||Fairy ring/spirit tree teleportation, of course you need to have completed the required quests|
Pools can restore stats depending on their level (Special attack, Run energy, prayer, stat restore, hitpoints, anti-poison)
|72||Portal Nexus||Up to 30 teleports available at 92 construction|
Xeric talisman/digsite pendant teleport
|80||Achievement gallery||Spellbook-switching altars (90 construction for all three)|
Jewellery box (ring of dueling, games necklace, combat bracelet, skills necklace, glory, ring of wealth)
Banking & butlers
From levels 1 – 40 you’ll want to stick to the base location of Rimmington. This is because next to the portal, in the general store an NPC named Phials can un-note your items for you. You should bring cash as he charges 5 coins per un-noted item.
After level 40 you’ll gain access to the regular butler which will go to the bank for you.
Butlers are essential for the fast experience rates I will be summing up below. These can run to the bank to get your planks for you. Butlers can be hired in Ardougne. They need a place to sleep so you will need to have two bedrooms in your house.
- 12 seconds to bank
- 20 items per trip
- 5K every 8 trips
- 7.2 seconds to bank
- 26 items per trip
- 10k every 8 trips
One of the most annoying things about every other osrs construction guide you’ll find is that the pricing is never accurate. Youtubers simply plug the data into a calculator and that’s the price they use. This is not accurate as they are not calculating the extra cost of the butler that comes in. A butler speeds up your exp rates tremendously, especially a demon butler but for some methods it will cost you over 30M gp more to use one.
Carpenter’s Outfit OSRS
Thanks to the August 26th update of the new construction activity: Mahogany Homes, we now have a construction outfit in OSRS. Go fashionscape.
The carpenter’s outfit, just like every other skilling outfit in osrs, gives you a 2.5% exp boost while training construction. This can save you a lot of money and time while training construction so it’s recommended you go for the outfit if you plan to get 99 construction.
The carpenter’s outfit can only be obtained from the mahogany homes reward shop. Mahogany home’s is a contracting activity where you do jobs all around Gielinor to train your construction. In return, you get construction experience and carpenter reward points.
With these reward points you can buy different pieces of the outfit, the full outfit will cost you 2000 reward points.
OSRS Construction Guide – The Cheap way
The cheapest way to 99 construction will cost you around 130-160M to get from level 1 – 99. The price depending on the butler (regular or demon) and the method used.
I will include a beginner EXP rate and a click-perfect EXP rate for every method.
Levels 1 – 33 Chairs
|1 – 8||Crude Wooden Chairs||14||28 planks/28 steel nails|
|8 – 19||Wooden Chairs||46||138 planks/138 steel nails|
|19 – 26||Oak Chairs||73||146 oak planks|
|26 – 33||Oak Armchair||102||306 oak planks|
Total cost: 300K
Levels 33 – 74 Oak Larders
|33 – 47||Oak Larders||2,246||17,968 Oak planks|
Total cost: 10M + 3.7M butler
Levels 74 – 99
Room: Dungeon/treasure room
|Levels||Furniture||Amount||Materials needed||EXP Rate|
|74 – 99||Oak Dungeon Doors||19,897||198,970 Oak planks||400 – 500K/hr|
Total cost: 110M + 12M demon butler = 122M
Alternative Levels 66 – 99

|Levels||Furniture||Amount||Materials needed||EXP Rate|
|66 – 99||Teak garden benches||23219||139,314||500 – 750K/hr|

1 – 99 construction guide – The fastest way
The absolute fastest way to 99 construction requires you to have a demon butler and near-perfect clicks. This method will also cost you almost double what you would pay for the cheapest way.
52 – 99 mahogany tables
|77 – 99||Gnome bench||13,761||82,566||600K – 900k/h|
cost: 206M + 10M demon butler
99 in under 20 hours
Alternative: 77 – 99 gnome benches
For this method to work out, you need a demon butler and you need to have perfect clicks. This method only works if you don’t leave room for mistakes. You’ll need a superior garden in your house and you need to make two tables at the same time. If your clicks are perfect you’ll be done building every time your butler comes back.
Room: Superior Garden
|77 – 99||Gnome bench||20,641||123,846||900K – 1.1M/h||10,5h|
cost: 277M + 6.5M demon butler
99 in under 15 hours
Hopefully, this 1-99 osrs construction guide was useful. Since plank prices will keep changing, you can use the construction calculator to calculate these. Though the total price will always be within 10-20m of the prices listed here. Good luck!
Brand New Alternative: Mahogany Homes
With the arrival of mahogany homes, players can train their construction a lot cheaper than before. No to mention it is more fun than the conventional methods of training construction where you spend all your time in your own P-O-H.
With Mahogany homes, you get contracting jobs for different NPC’s homes in Gielinor. To get started with this, you should speak to Amy in Falador (she’s located next to the Falador Realtor). She will assign you a job depending on your construction level. The higher level you are, the more experience and reward points you’ll get.
|Tier||Carpenter Reward Points||Planks used||EXP/hr|
As you can see, mahogany homes provides a nice alternative to training construction in osrs. For more info, check out our full guide on mahogany homes.
