The Thatch Ceiling is the most basic ceiling available. A ceiling provides protection from the elements, by enabling the Home Home status buff which gives +112 hypo and +56 hyperthermic insulation. This bonus is the same for all "Homes" regardless of materials used.

It can be found in white beacons.


A Thatch Ceiling requires placement on a Wooden Wall Wall, Wooden Pillar Pillar, Wooden Foundation Foundation, or another ceiling.
Once the first Thatch Ceiling is placed, subsequent Thatch Ceilings can snap into place along the first one, allowing them to line up, provided that there is adequate room to do so.
A ceiling requires support from a nearby foundation or pillar in order to be placed. The ceiling can only be placed up to 2 ceilings away in any direction on the x or y-axis, and up to 1 ceiling away diagonally from a wall or another ceiling that is directly above a connected foundation or pillar. The ceilings on the far ends of this setup will not be able to support walls.

Unlike other ceilings, the Thatch Ceiling is not stable enough to build on, and can not be used as a second floor. This means that walls can not be built on top of it, but place-able items like Hide Sleeping Bag Hide Sleeping Bags or Storage Box Storage Boxes can be.


  • If a ceiling is destroyed, any building pieces that rely on it for support will be destroyed as well. If it was destroyed via the demolish option, no resources will be refunded for these extra building pieces.
  • Thatch structures are weak and provide very little protection against attacks by dinosaurs or other players.
  • The Thatch Ceiling is treated as a thatch structure and can be damaged by anything except non-explosive ranged attacks.
