Updating to version 1.4:
In the latest version of Thistle Cottage I have re-arranged furniture and items inside the home.
It's important to un-install any previous version of Thistle Cottage and make a clean save before installing version 1.4.
Don't forget to remove any important loot you've stored in containers before updating. :)

Change Log
02/09/2013 - Version 1.4
- Improved Navmesh in the interior and exterior
- Added one Mannequin (there is a file without one)
- Apothecary's satchel and knapsack no longer respawn
- More weapon racks and plaques
- Verified with TES5 Edit to be cleaned
- Added marker for fast travel
- Added more ambient lighting

There are 2 files to choose from. One with a mannequin and one without a mannequin.
I don't think I need to tell you do not use both files at the same time... right? ;)
Use one or the other but not both.

Thistle Cottage is a player home for the low level character in mind, but without spoiling you too much.
Though practical and small it has almost everything you need.

Located south-west of Riverwood.

There is a Root Cellar with labeled chests for storage.
All containers in the cottage will not respawn.
Activate the Wash Basin and receive Blessing of Cleanliness for 8 hours, which cures disease,
fortifies persuasion 25 points, and fortifies health 25 points.
Alchemists lab and stocked shelf of ingredients
Weapon rack, weapon wall mounts, and weapon display case.
Active Bookcase.

There will be overlapping with other houses using the same exterior cell (Riverwood06... 3,-13).

Known Issues or Bugs
If the mannequin is floating just equipt it with armor and it should snap back into place.

You can send me a message at Tes Alliance or Tes Nexus.
I will be blunt this mod is an "as is home".
Meaning, if it's not the way you would have it... then make your own mod, damnit!
Any problems or issues? I'm sure you can figure it out.
If not, you can write it on a 20 dollar bill and send it to me... heh.
