        2 ways come to mind immediately.....

        1) Store the information in the character file (ie, add something
like "int rooms_in_my_own_personal_house")

        2) add a flag "owner" to the rooms (you'll probably want to do
this anyway), and upon bootup, scan through and count the rooms. Use this
for a more stable counting style - though you'll have to update this
number when the character creates more rooms..

                You can just modify the house code in stock circle, and
add oasis support for owners...
