When you're filling up a fluid, watch for the bottle to tilt down closer to the the horizontal. When you see it do that, you can stop--it'll be full enough for the game's purposes, unless your reaction time is significantly faster than mine.

Agreed! It's also nice to be able to go outside (and you can go around back and speculate about what those other building sites are for). Judging from the sign out front, you seem to be somewhere on the hot-and-dusty part of old U.S. 66. I think probably New Mexico. :)

Mm. This is one of the main reasons why I haven't started a new save in Stardew Valley, even though I've accomplished pretty much everything there is to do in the old one. I don't know if I could handle going back to being as bad at everything as your dude in that game is at the beginning. :)
