All constructed buildings except for Homes and Barracks provide 20 jobs which are automatically filled by unemployed peasants.
They can only be constructed on acres of barren land. Buildings cost platinum and lumber, and require 1 acre of barren land. The cost in platinum and lumber increases depending on your total land size.
All buildings take 12 hours to build. You can instantly destroy buildings.

Constructing buildings costs platinum and lumber. The formulas are below. Total Built Land caps at 75 % of your total land, so if you are 1000 acres and have only 700 buildings, anything you build will be costed as though you have 750 buildings.
Acres gained by Invading someone 75 % or larger will be discounted, costing only half. In addition, if you are invaded, lost buildings will give you the same discount. As of Round 18, these discounts do not stack.
850+([Total Built Land]-250)*1.53
88+([Total Built Land]-250)*0.35
You can destroy buildings by going to the Destroy Buildings page.
Destroying a building is immediate and frees up one acre of the corresponding land type.
