Each upgrade you take on can be started through Tom Nook. Tom Nook will offer you a Bell loan that coincides with a house upgrade. When you take on the loan your house will upgrade with something new whether that be larger rooms, more rooms, or new floors. In total there are seven house upgrades for purchase in Animal Crossing New Horizons (eight including move-in):

  1. Move-In: 5,000 Nook Miles.
  2. First House Upgrade: 93,000 Bells – Makes your tent into a house.
  3. Second House Upgrade: 193,000 Bells – Larger main room of your house.

  8. Seventh House Upgrade: 2,498,000 – Adds a basement to your house. Also unlocks free exterior renovations for life when paid off. This is the final upgrade you can unlock.

To purchase the above mentioned upgrades you will need to speak to Tom Nook. Each time you take out a loan on your house you need to pay it off in full before you can get the next. Each loan is more expensive than the previous one, but it often provides a better upgrade.
