When a player enters a residence they are logged out of the city chat and logged into a chat specific to that room. This means that users in the room will see each other and be able to chat with each other but they will not be able to see or chat with players outside. When you design your interior spaces keep this in mind. You need to force them to exit their house through an exit door so that they will be logged back into city chat. So if you have a house with an open patio you need to block of the area around it so players can't just walk back into the city.
Furniture is spawned when players enter their residence. Each residence contains it's own list of furniture that the player has placed and furniture can only be placed in one residence at a time.
Only one player can own a residence but they may have up to 10 guests. Only the owner can place/move/remove furniture but all of the guests can interact with it.
