About this mod

Welcome to The_Sanctuary, a player home with enough space for any and all children and followers one could ever want. The_Sanctuary is a huge space made to be aesthetically pleasing and for those that don't wish to have a huge home that reminds them of a labyrinth.

Permissions and credits

The_Sanctuary is a player home that I have been working on off-and-on for the last five years, it is also my first mod. As a lover of Skyrim, I wanted something that was open and airy, but with plenty of room for me to RP and have all the followers and children I wanted, but only ever found player homes that felt like labyrinths if they were large enough. As a lover of architecture, 3d modeling, and videogames I took it upon myself to learn how to work CK if only to sate my own frustration, but decided that I would add it to the Nexus if I ever got to a near-functional state. 

This mod is nowhere near done, but I wanted to post it anyway. I will be updating it. 

-All vanilla crafting stations.
-Beds for 6+ kids (Not working. Only for aesthetic currently.).
-Beds for 16+ followers
-Stable with space for 4 horses


Just north of Riverwood.
The key for the house is right by the main door.

Compatibility Notes:
-As there are trees within the house any mods that make trees larger won't be very realistic and may break the mod.
-Any other mods that change the world space where this mod is located will make this mod break.


I use ModOrganizer but there are other mod programs you can use easily. 
If you want to add it manually, just plop the .esp and .bsa into the main Skyrim data folder.

I highly recommend using ModOrganizer or NexusModManager. 



Works in Progress:

-Working cooking pot. (SOON) (Fixed as of update 4.0)
-The statics that are currently flying about. (SOON)  (Fixed as of update 4.0)
-Interactive bookshelves (SOONISH~). (Fixed as of update 4.0)
-I am currently working on the "bless home" ability. For now, it is not functional and is only for aesthetic (SOONISH~).
-The two exterior chests that are safe to put belongings into without respawning (SOONISH~). (Note this has been safe for me with no respawn.)
-Displays for all of the unique vanilla items
-Armory with working mannequins, shield racks, dagger display cases, and weapon racks
-NPC house-keeper
-Bathtub with auto-strip
-A mod version with only one cell, as the main bedroom is in another cell 

-Cloud storage connecting other player-homes 
-Improved front stairs and exterior front entry

-Intro Quest 


Thank you so much for allowing me to use your mod resources! They have added some much-needed flavor in the creation of this mod.


Notes on File Size:
As this is my first mod I have no idea why this mod is such a HUGE file, even when considering that I used many resources and it's large with 2 cells. 
Not sure how to fix this. 

Known Bug(s):
- On one of the stairs, there is an invisible wall that I can not seem to fix. Sometimes it is there and sometimes it is not. I will continue to try and fix this.
- The kitchens fire is LOUD. I am trying to fix this.  
-  Not sure if the two exterior chests are safe to put belongings in. (It has been completely safe for me though)

If you find bugs please post a comment, but as I am very busy it may take a long time to get a fix except for the bugs that I know of and am currently working on. 

-Always take all belongings out of the house before updating just in case. (I have done this though without any trouble)
