Building a shelter should take top priority, followed by easily craftable furniture like beds to help set your respawn point, grills and ovens so you can access cooking recipes, and fencing to protect your villagers.

Once you’ve acquired the appropriate resources, like Knotroot or Marble Slabs, to put toward your village upgrades, all you’ll need to do is raise your Village Rating to reach the next upgrade level. This is, of course, easier in sandbox mode than survival.

Village boundaries explained in LEGO Fortnite

The boundary of your village in LEGO Fortnite is indicated by the glowing gold box that appears when you are building something (like the one you'll see below). After you build a Village Square, you’ll be given a large amount of space to operate in.
