You’ve slayed dragons, topple giants, blasted thieves and dodged a myriad of arrows but you still haven’t found the home worthy for your Dovahkiin to settle down in. Here are 5 housing opportunities that will help Lydia carry your burdens, hide you from potential assassination attempts or even fulfill the ultimate role-play of a homeless sadistic assassin. Perhaps one of them is worthy of your Snooze-Ro-Dah.

Drela’s Cottage by Sk80n: You notice a cottage in the distance and as you finally enter the home you are attacked by a dark elf known as Drela. After defeating the puny elf, you are left with a corpse-ridden house. What do you do with it? Live in it of course! All items in the house have been edited to belong to no one, so you won’t be stealing his remains. Also his corpse will despawn in about a week in-game time, so you won’t be putting up with the dead body smell for long. (Source: Nexus)
Hillside Home by Shawkab: This home is planted on top of a hillside providing a gorgeous view of Skyrim’s mountains. No need to put money down or take out a loan to afford it: just fully upgrade the house in Breezehome (okay, some coin is needed) and find a note on one of your newly furnished tables in the house. Similar to the treasure maps in-game, you must read and use your intuition and locate more clues that will ultimately lead to the house’s destination. (Source: Nexus)
Dovahkiin Hideout by Shawkab: For those who fear that the Dark Brotherhood, this mod will provide a hideout shared between all your homes (making it a perfect panic room). Every house you can purchase in Skyrim will now have a doorway leading to the basement, where you’ll find six mannequins, 4 display cases, and all other kinds of storage – allowing you to stay hidden for weeks.

Hjerim Home Improvement by Sk80n: For those special people who decided to live in Windhelm and side with the Stormcloaks (because let’s face it, if you chose Stormcloaks you must be ‘special’), this mod expands the house with a secret room. This room can be upgraded to obtain an Alchemy and Enchanting lab that will bring an Alchemist/Enchanter’s chest, a bookcase, candles and more. (Source: Nexus)
Abandoned Shack by Sk80n: If you happen to be a part of the Dark Brotherhood and want your character to play the role of a homeless sadistic assassin, then this blood-filled derelict home is meant for you! Included with the purchase of the house are: a bed, table, barrel and a fireplace. What else could you ask for? Don’t say a bookshelf as reading isn’t for the Dark Brotherhood. (Source: Nexus)
