About this mod

This plugin adds an abandoned house to the road just outside Helgen, just follow Alduin :D
It's a very simple house with the basics: A place to sleep, cook and keep your loot until you are ready to move to a nicer place :)


Permissions and credits
Have you ever started a play through, and wanted a place to store your gear without having to join a faction or befriend an NPC?
Do you want to role play as a lone hunter living outside town but don't want to buy the Hearthfire's houses?
Are other house mods too "rich" for you?

I got you covered :D

This is a simple mod (single .esp file) that will add a small common house to the area outside Helgen.
There's nothing too special about this house, apart from being a very basic home with just enough things to role play as a nobody. Not even crafting stations :D

You will get the following:
A bed, 2 chairs, 3 weapon racks, 1 cooking pot, different types of storage and most importantly, a place to call home until you get enough gold to buy and/or build you own house :D

Containers won't respawn, so your loot should be safe :3
The house is Navmeshed, and fully compatible with followers and NPCs (see pictures)

The house is available to the player from the start. No quest or purchasing required.
No, I wont make a quest/purchase option.

Download and install with your preferred mod manager.


Drop the .esp into the Data folder (seriously, though, use a mod manager for your mods).


1. Bring all your items and followers out of the house (if you leave anything in you WILL lose it)
2. Go to another interior cell (any interior would do, but avoid exteriors for safety) and make a new save.
3. Disable with mod manager or delete the esp from data folder (not other files added).
4. Load your save and you will get a message saying "Just a House.esp is missing", click yes and load.
5. If your game loaded without problems, you are good to go :)

Should be safe to uninstall anytime as long as you aren't inside the house.
You can install a new version after this!

Known Issues
Some weapons might not quite fit in the weapon racks (see pictures). I believe this is not my fault but an issue with the game itself.
There might be clipping issues with other mods adding things to the same area (not that I know of any though)

Leave your suggestions and advises in the comment section!

If you didn't like it, then recommend it to your enemies! :D
