Turns out the tiles must be empty and that includes non-tilled soil if you want to build a coop or other farm buildings. Seasons just changed and I don't want to wait ~20 game days for them to change again. Is there a way to make the soil non-tilled faster?

To un-till soil just hit it with your Pickaxe.

  • Thanks. This will come in handy when I use bombs to clear the land. Commented May 26, 2016 at 8:33
