You can buy a house from Rhondson in Tarrey Town for 1,500 rupees after completing the Mattison's Independence Side Adventure.

To get a house, you’ll first need to complete the Mattison’s Independence Side Adventure. Make your way to Tarrey Town, which is located in Northeast Hyrule, just southeast of the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower. Speak with Hudson, a character that you may remember from Breath of the Wild. He and his wife, Rhondson, will lament the fact that their daughter, Mattison, will soon have to move to Gerudo Town. Follow this storyline until Hudson builds the balloon and you all see Mattison off on her journey.

Once you’ve finished this Side Adventure, speak to Rhondson at Hudson Constructions. She will offer you a plot of land to build your dream house for 1,500 rupees. Pay the fee and head to the plot of land on the cliff southeast of Tarrey Town. Speak with Granteson and he’ll get you started off with two rooms for your home, a foyer and a bedroom.

Speak with Granteson when you’re done building to lock the changes in place. You can speak with Granteson again to purchase additional rooms, like a kitchen, gallery, blessing room, and more.
