     - This is a rather large house, with quite a bit of clutter, in the exterior worldspace.  It is FPS-intensive.  If you have a weak computer, or if you are
        using a ton of high-res textures and an ENB, you will get some lag.

     - There are activators throughout the house that allow you to change some options - they look like either hanging wall baskets (in the main house)
        or buttons (in the basement).  There is one just inside the kids room that will allow you to change it into a followers room instead.  The buttons
        at the gallery and armory doorways will allow you to disable/enable those two rooms independently.  The button in the "pantry" area of the
        basement will enable/disable a vampire coffin.  There is also an activator near the front door that will disable some of the clutter in/around the
        house, if your FPS is suffering.

     - The automatic lights may not turn on the first night.  Just give it 24 hours, and they will work properly.

     - You will need TMPhoenix's Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions to get your spouse and kids to move into the house.

     - If you tell your kids to "go play outside", they will attempt to go out of the gate and over by the stables to play.  This is because the adoptions
        scripts require the "sandbox outside" marker to be in a different cell than the "interior" of the house.  So, if you want to tell them to go play
        outside, make sure the gate is unlocked for them.  They will still also sandbox and play hide and seek inside the walls of the property.

     - The display activators in the gallery were either pulled from or created based off of those in skyrimlazz's Displays - Dragon Claw and others
        resource.  As noted on his mod's page, weapons and armor will lose their smithing upgrades when put in a display, so maybe don't put them in
        here until you're done using them.

     - The gallery is set up for the way I wanted to display my collection.  Some unique weapons and armor are meant for specific mannequins and
        weapon racks and therefore don't have activators.  Of course, you can put your stuff wherever you like, but I have included a list as an optional
        download for anyone who wants to see how everything fits.  (The gallery displays are set up mostly the same as Pinecrest Estate and Birchwood
        Manor, but I rearranged a couple mannequins, added some banners and moved the Thieves Guild displays to their own little room.)

     - Screenshots were taken with Vividian ENB and Skyrim HD - 2K Textures installed
