Right near Greenspring Hollow and the dragon mound west of Whiterun. Just look in the images, pictures are your friend. You need to buy the property from the note on the left side of the gate, you must have become thane in Whiterun. (Alternatively, you could use the command "coc 010WindsRestINT01" and activate the benches via the crafting bench inside)

Q: Where are the workbenches?

A: I haven't had them move but they like to be twisted in place, looking around the room, the psychopaths. Just don't blink.

Q: Can you remove ______ ?
