Been working in the Creation Kit on version 5.0! I have NO idea when it will be finished, but it will require a new play-through because there are lots of changes. Old versions of Elysium Estate will always be available in the files section though.

PSA on the Skyrim Special Edition for this mod: Do not use this version in the Skyrim Special will not work. At some point, I do plan on releasing this mod for the SSE, which will have it's own new page on the SSE Nexus site.


--------October 17, 2016--------

Hi everyone! I have taken a long hiatus from mod making, playing Skyrim or making mods. I apologize to people who messaged me that I didn't respond to. Here are a few answers to common messages:

Q: "Can you help me with the creation kit?"
A: You don't want my help... I haven't touched the Creation Kit in over a year, and to get back into it is going to be a feat for me (as I have been using Unity for a year now...similar but a totally different challenge.) There are tons of awesome tutorials and youtube videos out there to help you though! And they are more thorough and better at explaining then I will be for you. Try for instance. He is awesome. Or  Or just search Youtube, Google or the Nexus forums. It's hard, but if you really care about learning, you will get there and create awesome things.

Q: "Will you add this or that or whatsacallit, or all of my favorite things?"
A: "Maybe! I love suggestions from people, and I do try to listen to the community. Ultimately, it comes down to what I want to add, but there have been many things added in the past to Elysium Estate that weren't my idea at all."

Q: "I can't move my kids in, the basement is laggy so can you make it more performance friendly, can you make it all one room so there are no load screens"?
A: Elysium Estate does come with some issues...mostly because I had my real life job to attend to, and I had to stop working on the mod. I apologize if you experienced issues, and you can ask people on Elysium Estate forums for help as they are more up-to-date on how to fix this issues for now.

Anyways, those are a few questions or comments I get from people often. If I didn't reply personally to you, it's because time is fickle and flies like an arrow (to the knee, hehe...)

AS for future updates...I very much still have ideas I'd like to implement. I'm kind of waiting on Skyrim Remastered to release, to see what that is all about. (I personally am going to get the upgrade). I'm not sure what that means for Elysium Estate yet. Leave comments and I will be watching the forums more closely from now on.

See you around soon!


Old Updates:
Important: (Updated originally 4/24/2015 & also 4/5/2016) Hello! This mod is on hiatus for the time being. I have real life to attend to at the moment (taking some courses, working at my career job, moving to a new city etc). I just wanted to let y'all know that Elysium Estate will always be free to download. I don't currently have it uploaded to Steam Workshop and have no plans to do so. I believe the best system is free modding and sharing our experiences and resources to create better mods. I made this mod for my own use and to create memories for other users. I hope I can continue to accomplish this in the future. Thank you for your support and endorsements. They make my day! Hope to be back working on Elysium Estate soon as I have lots of plans. <3

ELYSIUM ESTATE (Requires Dawnguard+Dragonborn DLCs)
Requires Skyrim version or higher
  • Download the Main Elysium Estate file
  • Extract the .esp and .bsa files to your game's Data folder
  • ElysiumEstate.esp is required
  • Extract the .esp to your game's Data folder
  • If you want kids: Hearthfire multiple adoptions. If you don't use this mod, you can't move your kids into Elysium Estate.


Here's an example of proper load order. Without proper load order, you may experience bugs/missing items/landscape issues. I also recommend keeping Elysium Estate near the bottom of your load order.

  • Dawnguard.esm
  • Hearthfires.esm
  • Dragonborn.esm
  • ElysiumEstate.esp
  • ElysiumEstate-HF.esp


  • Dawnguard.esm
  • Hearthfires.esm
  • Dragonborn.esm
  • ElysiumEstate.esp
  • ElysiumEstate-HFNoKids.esp


I will be watching the comments section and reading any requests. I may update this house again whether from my own new ideas, or ideas received by others.
  • There is a lot of greenery inside and outside of this house. It was the atmosphere that I wanted to create.
  • Most items in Elysium Estate are static items, so they won't fall over.
  • I did my best to create a working house. Just remember to backup your saves! I'm not responsible if my mod messes up your Skyrim save game.
  • If you leave me a comment, I'm a calling me dude or a sir or a guy or him...isn't correct. :P
