When you first get started in Cult of the Lamb, you have maybe three followers, a few berry bushes, and that’s sort of it. You’ll quickly find your cult looking like it was decorated by a child – not a prophet. And when you’re ready to actually tidy the place up a bit, you need to know how to move buildings. Luckily for you, I know how.

How to Move Buildings in Cult of the Lamb

Before you can move buildings in Cult of the Lamb, you need to unlock the right to do so. This happens pretty early on in a new playthrough. In fact, most of you will have already done this without realizing it.
It’s unclear how you actually unlock the ability to move buildings. However, we know it’s tied to the initial set of essential buildings you place within your cult. By the time you’ve placed your church, a bedroll, and a farm plot, you should be able to move all of them around.
To move buildings in the Cult of the Lamb, do the following:
- Complete the game’s tutorial and place a bedroll, church, and farm plot.
- Go into your build menu and press the “edit buildings” key.
- Click on whatever buildings you want to pick up and drop inside this mode.
First head over to your building menu next to the statue in your cult’s compound. If you’ve unlocked the ability to move/edit buildings, you should see it listed at the bottom of the menu next to “accept” and “back.”
Inside this edit mode, you’ll be able to pick up and move whatever buildings you want. Just hover over and click your building of choice, then move it and click again to drop. You’ll also be able to completely destroy buildings in this mode, too, if that’s something that you need to do.
There are limitations to this, of course. You can’t move your center statue, your build menu, or your sell and tribute chests. Aside from static decorations, everything else is fair game.

Beyond aesthetics, there are a few reasons why you would want to rearrange your cult. Primarily, it’ll be to do with resource management. Farms have a limited range, and you’ll need a few of them if you expect your cult to grow in size.
Being able to dedicate a specific sector of your compound to growing food will be vital for endgame success, so make sure you clear out all the space you need for growing crops.
The same goes for your stone mines and lumberyards. Without a clear plan, everything gets messy. When things get messy, you’ll find managing your cult gets harder and harder – especially as you grow it in size. Keep everything organized, and your gameplay will benefit from it in the long run.
