    What does the tooltip say when you hover over the house and click it? – Wouter Oct 18 at 11:01
  • Is it close to the crimson or corruption? NPC's won't move in if it is. – Robbie Oct 18 at 11:12

    @brododragon Meteorite bricks, walls and furniture are perfectly valid for housing. And no, you're not dumb :) It's ok to question stuff sometimes (That's what this site is for, right?) – Cássio Renan Oct 19 at 20:02

On the bottom of your screen there (I highlighted it in the above screenshot), it looks like you have a lot of purple (corrupted) ice blocks. A house that has too much corruption (or crimson) close by will become unhabitable.

You should either move the house away from those blocks, or remove them from near your base.

  • Nice catch, did not see that untill you pointed it out – Wouter Oct 21 at 11:29
