THANKS to all who have provided feedback, endorsed, kudo'd, screenshoted and put the hideout as a File of the Month in May 2012.



A small, detailed, atmospheric hideout off the beaten path between Riverwood and Whiterun. If you don't mind getting your boots wet, the sound of waterfalls, and prefer a darker hidden place to kick up your feet and drop off your loot...this may be the home for you.

Should be lore friendly, ready for companions, full crafting and storage.
  • If anyone is familiar with my other mod Fallout 3 Mini Hideout. you may see some similarities, especially in style.
  • This was made using NebuLa1's version 1.4 of Skyrim HD 2k Textures. If your computer can handle it I recommend it to see what I saw when I designed it.
  • The hideout is very lighting specific so ENB mods or other lighting effects may make it too dark or flicker more.

Please feel free to provide feedback and suggestions...it may spark an idea or change in the mod.



Version 06 plans and progress: (CURRENTLY ON HIATUS)
  • Navmesh interior slightly adjusted and set to cover edges (completed)
  • Snag on entry stairs fixed (completed)
  • Left weapon rack fixed (completed)
  • Wall lean marker re-adjusted so it doesn't clip (completed)



  • Planned
  • Bug fixes
  • Item/Ingredient sorters
  • Underground Garden
  • Tone water & pump sounds down

Possibilities
  • Alternate entrance (location)
  • Frostfall support (warm bath water)
  • Dragon Claw Display
  • Dragon Priest Mask Display
  • Rayek's Blade replaced with unique sword
  • Static Clutter
