A lot of the most recent survey involved reworking existing skills, and the one skill that I’ve always felt was not at its full potential was construction. The update I would most like to see is a construction rework that makes the player-owned house more of an actual home-base. To me, “home-base” is Priffdinas where I have access to my bank, the GE, and portals to clan and player owned port. These features in a player-owned house would be awesome! For example, the ability to have bank chest in your house, and perhaps the butler has access to the GE, so that the GE interface can be opened in your house. Some players enjoy that they can simply skill on their own at a bank while watching Netflix or whatever, and I have heard some express interest in a muted world in order to do that. I believe that being able to skill (i.e. have access to a bank) in your own home would service that ambition, and allows people to skill within smaller communities (i.e. with friends or clanmates). Houses could even include skilling areas such as a forge or a pottery wheel/oven.
Additionally, it would really improve construction if the house was more customizable, meaning get rid of the room # cap, put a door available on all 4 sides (Thus avoiding a weird configuration where you have to go outside and then back in to reach certain rooms), and have customizable exterior features such as balconies, chimneys, and roofing. That way players can construct a house to their liking, and allows for complex dungeons (a player owned dungeon was one of the suggested ideas in the survey, and this could be a way to implement that). Lastly, it’s very helpful to be able to store a lot of items in the costume room, but a customized armory would be a cool feature. You could store weapons and have customizable armor stands that work almost like bank presets, such as having an armor stand or weapon rack for different set-ups, whether they be for combat styles or for particular bosses.
Best,

Adding banks, GE and other stuff in yout house sounds very OP.

If people want a muted world, they can just turn chat off or go to a bank someplace deserted. Ashdale cave is hardly visited. Varrock east bank is usually empty. Lumbridge Crater too if there's no event going on.
It's really not hard to avoid people.

More costumisations for the rooms would be nice. Everything square and hardly any windows is rather dull.
Bwian's Towel and Grief Shop really needs some costumers, the
Holy Church of Gloop
has reincarnated itself, and the Wiki needs your help!

I think having a bank and GE is okay, but only at level 99 (or 120 if they raise it) construction, as moving planks from your bank is a large part of the time-consuming nature of the skill.

Besides that, having skilling stations and more "home-base"-y attributes would definitely make some sense, and I could get behind it.

I didn't feel that it was any more OP than just standing at Priff, but I can understand your view. The biggest point behind what I suggested is that the player owned houses are actually pretty cool, but as of right now, I hardly have any reason to go into mine. I was trying to think of a way to make them more integrated into the game. Additionally, in order to have one of each room, you have to make it a weird configuration that's difficult to get around.

No GE or banks in POHs, please, but otherwise support any development of Construction.
When you have nothing, be hopeful; when you have little, be grateful; when you have much, be sensible; when you have everything, be humble.
