I apologize if this has been brought up before, I did search, but didn’t see anything that related to it on a skim of the post.
I think, that since we have the option to be putting up workman’s banners as decorations on the buildings, we should be able to assign workers to those buildings to live in as well. Home ownership, if you like. I made some larger sized houses, and I’m placing the workshops outside of them, and think it would be pretty darn neato if we could say “Mr Carpenter, you live here now” and other hearthlings wouldn’t steal his bed away.
Just my two cents.
