Complete 100% of all main mission constraints.
Play all 12 sequences, gaining 100% sync on all of them. You must do all optional tasks and not fail them. They can be replayed from the memory menu. It might be best to try to do them when you are actually on the mission. That way, most of the time if failed, you can reload your checkpoint and try again while it's fresh in your mind.

and go to your logbook. In Building The Homestead, you will see your stats. You must do all of the Homestead missions. There are quite a few and this will take a very long time.

Patent Not Pending 10
Craft one of Franklin's inventions to decorate your Manor.
To get the ability to craft one Franklin's inventions, you must collect his almanac pages and you will get the "recipes" for them. You then must have the supplies and the correct "craftsman" for the job. It's best to attempt this achievement after you have completed all Homestead missions so that everyone is leveled up and you have access to all supplies. After doing all of this, you just have to use the Accounting Book. Inside the front door the the manor, look left and you'll see a book in a room that lets you craft. These books are also in all of the general shops.
You must craft all of his recipes anyways for the 100% DNA Tracker.
House Party 10
Recruit any of the Artisans and see them settled on the Homestead.
This will be unlocked early in the game, as you save a man from a cliff near the manor. You will tell him his talents can be used and he claims he will keep it in mind but that decision is made rather quickly. You need to recruit all of them, so this will come along easily.
A Complete Set 20
See all the optional characters settled at the Homestead.

There are a total of 3 little mini games you can play in this game. Once you have your Homestead built up, you will be able to play them there as well.
You find this game inside of the Manor at the Homestead. To win this game, you must capture all of the opponents pieces. You must move a piece away or towards the opposite color. When one is taken all of the ones in a straight line from it will get removed. Pick to move second. This is on Expert difficulty automatically, so don't expect to have an easy time here. Sometimes the AI will make a move that ends up removing a ton of your pieces with a combo. If it looks like you're going to lose, you probably will. Use the quit out method to try again. If you can manage a combo or two yourself then you stand a decent chance. Let the AI go first, and try to follow the below video. If it isn't doing the same moves, quit and try again. This might be your best shot at getting this won.
Travel South of the Manor to the little town and right near the inn is an outside game. This game is Intermediate difficulty (phew). One player throws the main ball on the ground, then each players gets 4 balls to try and get as close as they can to the main one. You throw until you are closest. Whoever ends with the most balls closest to the main, wins. Try to make the blue circle as small as you can when throwing. If it's possible, knock an opponents ball away while also making yours closer. This is the easiest of the 3 games but it might take some getting used to before you win. There are 2 rounds to win.
Right next to Bawls is the Inn and a tavern. Inside is the game. Here you must place pieces and create 3 in a line to take away an opponents piece. It's usually best to start and place your pieces in two corners. After you run out of pieces (after placing them), you must move your current ones. At 3 pieces left you can move them anywhere on the board. This game is also very difficult and on Expert when you play it at the Homestead. Watch the video below as a reference. This may take several attempts.
Keep in mind, you must bet and win 500 total for a thieves guild challenge.
Bring Down the House 20
Explore Fort Wolcott.
To visit Fort Wolcott you have to do the first part of the "Peg Leg" side mission. The quest giver can be found at the harbor of the Homestead area. He wants you to find trinkets scattered around the Frontier, Boston, New York, and the Homestead. You can buy a map for these at any general store to make it easier. You only have to find 12 to be given the location to Fort Wolcott. Go to the Harbormaster and go to the Fort. This is the first part of Kidd's Treasure quest. Complete the fort and make sure you do the optional quests as well.
