Buildings which have special functionality, by adding or expanding features, are facilities. Access to their abilities is decided by leadership, and can used by everyone, citizens, or just leadership. You can see what access levels are set to what buildings under the Benefits section in a town menu.
Room destruction uses engineering and can be started at any time by a person older than 13, if you have a battering ram and it can be done inside and outside. When starting the project, a message is sent into the room to make those inside aware. If destruction completes, all items and people within will be exposed to the outside area and the room will be permanently removed along with any locks inside. Any rooms connected to the one which was destroyed will have outside exposure.
For example, say there is a building which looks like this: Entrance -> Living Room -> Kitchen. If you destroy the entrance, you will expose the living room . If you destroy the living room you will expose the kitchen. It takes half the amount of time to destroy a room as it does to build one. When a room has been destroyed, events will show who was revealed from the room and what items were inside.

- Watchtower: Allows town residents to see people on an adjacent tile. When inside the building, you can click on a map tile to see if there are people present on it, and if anyone is on the adjacent roads. You will also get a personal event inside a watchtower any time someone arrives at a map tile adjacent to town if present in the watchtower during arrival. If the building functionality has been restricted, you will be temporarily blinded when trying to look out from the watch tower. Watchtowers do not notify when someone leaves a tile, only why they arrive.
- Market: Marketplaces allow towns to set up areas where others can freely trade with the town supply without leaders having to necessarily be present. The marketplace requires a warehouse to be built first, which will hold the inventory of goods intended for trade. While in a marketplace, leadership can set prices of buy and sell for the goods in the warehouse. Only goods in the warehouse entrance will be able to be priced, but extra rooms can be added onto the storage to house items that are not for sale. For non-leadership, the marketplace will show the list of available goods for sale, and a list of goods with a price the town is willing to buy. If a non-leadership character has an item the town has listed as an offer, they will be able to sell it for the stated price automatically. You cannot sell what you cannot carry. Only works with coins. Buying and selling from the town in this manner is automatic, with the movement of goods carried out by numerous small creatures that seem to live in every warehouse.
