This mod adds a lore-friendly player cottage located off the beaten path, features a full smithy with all the fixings, a main living area with custom enchanting area by the desk, as well as sleeping area and cooking area. Also has a wine-cellar accessible by rolling up the rug in the study and sliding back the stone floor panel. The wine cellar features a custom alchemy table and secret armory hidden behind the panel (activated by button on the cabinet) with the hanging wine glasses. Armory features weapon racks, mannequins and weapon plaques

All the same features as the regular version just with added support for general displays. The interactive displays currently implemented are: Dragon claws, Dragon priest masks, Bug jars, Divine amulets, Hold shields, and the three custom collectible helms, The mask of Clavicus vile, Visage of Mzund, and the Helm of Yngol

Recommended to use NMM

Step 1: Decide if you want the vanilla or general displays version of this mod, it can be found HERE. If you decide to use vanilla go to step 2. If you decide on general displays then install that mod first!

Step 2: Install the main DATA file, then select the .esp option you would like, either vanilla or general displays(remember you need general displays first!) and install

Step 3: Enjoy! And if you enjoy leave a comment or endorse!

For manual install, download the main resource file, then the .esp or your choice and place in your skyrim data folder

I made this mod cause' although there are many great house mods out there, none seemed cool or original enough to suit me. I wanted a home with the atmosphere of more "eye candy" based house mods, combined with the function of others. I was never a fan of large wide open spaced "manor' style homes with bleak lighting and a million mannequins. So I decided to create something a little smaller and cozy/immersive/fantasyesque to suit my taste.

vb1.0: original release

vb1.1: Second release. Replaces textures that were causing some users to have purple texture displays in some parts of the home. Also tweaked some specular maps, added sandbox idle animations to more areas, and placed a collision box over small area that allowed the player to become stuck at times.

vb1.2: Third release.
Added two seperate versions.
Tweaked the ticking clock sound to be a little less annoying. Small navmesh edit to solve misbehaving mannequin. Added more comprehensive readme.

vb1.3: Fourth release.
Tweaks to mod to make file size significantly smaller. Optimized textures, changed a few textures that didnt look very good. Added a path to the cottage among various other "eye candy" tweaks.
Fixed secret door in wine cellar to not have a activate option. Should be much, much easier on computer memory
Tweaked general displays version a little to be more intuitive.
