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.

________________________________________________________________________________________

I died a little bit from joy because of this video:


REQUIREMENTS:
• Decent gaming rig
• Skyrim up to date
• Dawnguard DLC

Recommended alongside this house is the new Vampire Hunter shop mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/52224

ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP SAVE IN CASE SOMETHING GOES WRONG WITH INSTALLING NEW MODS.




Mod includes:
- A small barricaded house in the gorgeous Dayspring Canyon, right before Fort Dawnguard.
Credits for house models: breti - http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/936576/?tb=mods&pUp=1
Credits for textures: Langley - http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/5568390/?tb=mods&pUp=1


- A custom follower husky, if you're in Dawnguard. The dog is in DG faction so it only follows friendlies
Credits for the fur to Aenkill: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/1073917/?

- A custom silver dagger for sneaky vampire slaying
Credits to InsanitySorrow: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/258945/?tb=mods&pUp=1

- Custom Vigilant clothing with epic enchantments
Credits to batmanna: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/3501725/?tb=mods&pUp=1

- All basic vanilla crafting (forge can craft Dawnguard items and Skyforge Steel also)
- Named storage for organised and tidy house
- 1 Mannequin, some weapon displays

The place is locked up pretty tight. The previous owner went to fight vampires in Morthal but never returned. Find his body and you find the key.
He sent his dog home and Blade can be found guarding outside the house. Blade is NOW essential.

If you cannot guess where the previous owner died, you can get the body location from the readme

I don't know why, but I couldn't get the weapon plaques working no matter what I tried, so I made them into static Dawnguard weaponry displays.

General stuff:
It is meant to be a lone warrior's place. Just a man and his faithful dog. No frills, no friends, CERTAINLY NO children.

- Navmeshed but no additional room for followers
- Cleaned and hand-polished in TES5Edit with magnificent skill
- All storage is safe and no respawn
- The house is in the BOSS 2.2 Masterlist
- Bed gives Well Rested bonus
- Map marker has to be discovered



I will delete every comment moaning about stuff I warned people about in advance, including:
- how small it is
- how the armour is just robes
- how much it makes their game lag
- how it requires DLC
- how it's not follower friendly
