it sounds like there's a touch of miscommunication.
both portals need to be 2x3, two wide, three high, to make a planet to OTHER planet hop. that will cost 50 to open, and one shard to run.
andoweem would be able to make it to Alturnik, so you can make your house connect to Jeff's portal on Andoweem, same cost, or you could make a doorway sized portal 1 wide, 2 tall, (i'm confused about where youre trying to connect)
taht would be enough to connect your house on whatever planet you're on to Jeff's portal on the SAME planet.
this would require a little building for you, but would not require more portals or oort shards. possible solution.
long post sorry. could be confusing, sorry if it is
