All Sons of the Forest Blueprints available early game

Everything you'll need, and then some

When it comes to building in Sons of the Forest, you’ve got two choices; either you can build from scratch using custom building and design your own masterpiece of a structure, or you can use Blueprints to, at the very least, get you started. 

Recommended Videos

While building from scratch allows your creativity to flow and beautiful buildings to appear, either by design or through happy accidents, you can’t build everything you need this way. Storage, traps, and furniture can all be found in the Blueprints menu. 

To view or use Blueprints, press B and then hold X to switch over to the Blueprints menu. Here, you’ll find a whole variety of tabs containing buildings or furnishing items which can help you create a base to sustain your time on the island. 

There are some additional Blueprints found through exploring the island, but I won’t be including them here. Instead, let’s take a look at all the Blueprints you can build right from the very start, as well as what you need to finish them.
