NOTICE: MOD IS OFFERED AS IS. I HAVE NO TIME NOR THE MOTIVATION TO UPDATE OLD MODS.
THE MOD WORKS FINE SO NO UPDATES WILL BE POSTED.

________________________________________________________________________________________

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO MAKE A BACKUP SAVE BEFORE USING A NEW MOD OR AN UPDATED VERSION, SO YOU CAN GO BACK TO IT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG!

THERE ARE CURRENTLY 3 VERSIONS. PICK YOUR POISON.
(

:: REQUIREMENTS ::
- Skyrim up to date

:: DLC VERSION REQUIREMENTS ::
- Skyrim up to date
- Hearthfire DLC
- Dragonborn DLC

- For adopting 3 children and relocating them to the ranch you also need Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions mod.
Please do read the instructions and general info on TMPhoenix's mod page.

:: FEATURES ::
- Alchemy and enchanting
- Blacksmithing workstations
- Farm animals
- Realistic size: Not a shack outside, having massive halls of nothingness inside
- Adds new merchant/Alchemy trainer in Ivarstead
- Extra house for followers (5 beds)
- Tons of safe storage
- Follower room (will be turned into children's room in the DLC version)
- Kitchen your mother would be jealous of
- Dragonpriest mask busts
- Harvestable crop
- GORGEOUS clutter and custom furniture
- Bookshelves and a library corner with sofas
- Sufficient display for weapons and armor
- Lots of shiny new models/items/textures from modder's resources
- Basement for extra storage and immersion needs
- Outhouse

:: DLC VERSION FEATURES ::
- 3 beds for kids (the follower room turned into kids room)
- Bath house
- Staff enchanter
- HF oven, butter churn, apiary

:: GENERAL OTHER STUFF ::
- Bed should give well rest bonus, it might not say "you wake up..." but it shows up in magic effects
- Purchasable house from anywhere between 15000 and gazillion, depending on your speech level. Buy it from Jean Luc in Ivarstead
- Horse goes to the shed when fast-travelling
- Has dragon landing markers and other idle markers around the place
- Cleaned and polished with TES5edit
- Most things that usually can be picked up are static so that you don't mess up my carefully laid out Feng Shui when barging in at 2 AM after drinking all night with Sam Guevenne.
- I would not suggest running this house on a potato. I have tons of static clutter and new textures, so it can be heavy on the PC.
- The house is small and it will remain small. I don’t like huge empty spaces, I’m the girl who makes compact homes. It's not a vault where you display the 500 different armors and weapons you collected. It’s got everything you need for perfect Skyrim experience. Everything else is overkill.


ENB in the screenshots is Somber ENB Lut Sepia ELFX. I also use Skyrim Flora Overhaul and tons of HD texture mods, the Solitude re-texture is called Ultimate Solitude. I can also recommend:
- Static Mesh Improvement Mod
- Detailed Rugs
- Furniture and Clutter HD Texture
- aMidianBorn Whiterun
- Sexy Solitude (DLC version screenshots)
- An ENB setup, as the house was made with ENBs in mind

Thanks for the features, insane0hflex and Ruiuji!


:: KNOWN ISSUES ::
- Because of the new bedding on the beds, you have to put the cursor over bed frames to get the bed activator...
:: CONFLICTS ::
- "Summon Lucilla Corrium" mod. Somehow deactivates Jean Luc's merchant dialogue.

- Limbwood Manor
