The Reserve II


Located a short horseride east of Whiterun, The Reserve II is a player home meticulously designed for convenience and extravagant living. Featuring three main wings all branching from the center, it eliminates the burdon of confusing corridors, and provides the Dragonborn with all the essentials and more.

*This player home does NOT require any DLC* Enjoy!

Also available on Skyrim Nexus (


The Main Hall is the entrance, and also acts as the hub to get to each wing of the home. The high ceilings and windows to the outside sky were designed to feel open and refreshing. Depending on the time of day, the room is lit with warm sunshine, or soft blue moonlight. The Den is a furnished and warmly-lit bedroom with ample storage. It also has a closet, washroom, and two extra beds in the loft. The Forge is complete with all the tools an Adventurer needs, as well as a kitchen, bar, and dining area. Everything in The Forge is close at hand for quick and efficient crafting. The Atrium is a grand circular library with a small garden, study, and Alchemy/Enchanting tables.

The companion dog, Mocha, is uniquely textured and available as a companion. I tried to remove the barking idle, but was unable to figure it out, so I do apologize if it gets annoying but she will not be removed from the mod. <3 See FAQ for more info. The dog is "killable" if you do not wish to have her in your home.


. Spacious open floor plan
. Custom containers for your items instead of boring chests
. Working bard, bartender/vendor, and 2 optional followers (a custom textured canine or your housecarl)
. All tools needed for crafting
. All shrines available for blessing of your choice
. Enchanting and Alchemy tables with satchels
. 'Follower' room with multiple beds (follower chests are not player owned)
. Ample storage throughout (all containers are player-owned with NO respawns so you won't lose your loot)
. Fully navmeshed inside and outside; followers will follow you into and around the house
. Display cases, weapon racks, plaques, mannequins
. A bed to gain Rested bonus
. Small garden with access to some herbs, carefully tended by your own Spriggan. (His sound file is removed to keep him quiet.)
. Baby dragon in the alchemy wing
. Scenic location with quick ride to Whiterun
. And much more...


! This mod was cleaned with TES5Edit.

Q: Why are there no support pillars to the base of the house?
A: Because they looked horrible and tacky. SO MANY PEOPLE have asked this, it's rediculous. Yes it would look more realistic, but it would also look really bad. I seriously spent hours trying to get pillars to look half way decent. So now it is magically supported. Pillars will not be added.

Q: Can my spouse live here?
A: Please use this mod with The Reserve to have your spouse live with you. I have no idea how to enable spouses, I did try! (

Q: Mannequins are moving or unequipted armor!
A: This is very common with ANY house mod, and is a game bug, not a mod bug. I believe there are separate mod fixes for this.

Q: Can my children live here?
A: Not currently, as that would require my mod to be dependent on Hearthfire. I am looking into either an addon or a "Hearthfire version", but I need to find some documentation on how to add in the child and spouse functionality.

Q: Loralyn always walks away when I tell her to sing!
A: She is on her way to go sing. She has to be standing on her "marker" to perform.

Q: The dog is annoying the *#$% out of me.
A: She is just set to "protected" not "essential" so you may ask her to follow you and take her out back 'Old Yeller' style. :'(

Q: I hate your mod! :<
A: Then don't subscribe. :3 I cannot please everyone, it is an impossibility. I respect your opinion but there's not much I can do about it!

It is good practice to make a real save game (not a quick save), at least every few days and back these up in case something goes wrong.


. If using Steam Workshop, simply press Subscribe
. OR Extract the files from the download and copy them into the corresponding directories in your Skyrim folder. If the directories do not exist, simply create them. "thereserve.esp" goes in your Data folder and make sure it is checked in the Data popup of your Skyrim launcher.


. Make SURE you REMOVE everything from The Reserve before you uninstall, as the house will be removed from the game. You will lose your items unless you remove them. If using Steam Workshop, simply press Unsubscribe
. OR Delete the files from your Data folder


I recommend the use of HD flora and furniture mods such as "Skyrim Flora Overhaul", "HD Furniture and Barrels" with The Reserve, as they enhance the graphics of objects within the home.

If you find any bugs or graphical issues, Please bring them to my attention so they can be fixed. :)

Questions or comments about this mod or any of my projects can be sent to:




Current Release 1.2
. Added a small room and beds for followers
. Fixed possible crash bug from texture path
. Made bard Protected instead of Essential so she is killable only by player

. Fixed two backwards chests
. Ficked flickering on wall next to keg
. Fixed custom container bug that sometimes caused items to dishevel

. Release The Reserve II

I try to delete them right away but cannot sit here watching for them.

Hi, I have installed skyrim in another PC and all my items on boxes have disappeared. Can someone help me to get back al those items ?

Loving the Mod, I have been subscribed for a while now.
I have recently come across a problem where Rory Swiftserve is NOWHERE to be found. I even tcl'd in case he was stuck out of bounds. Just wanted to ask for his RefID so I can console him to me.

Looks really nice! The only thing I would like, would be to have it compatiple with kids and spouses. :)

Will the items I take from the house (food, potions, etc.) respawn after a certain amount of time?

the secret bathroom was really cool

Hi, I think your mod is awesome, but there's not much manniquins and weapon plates... and, such as in The Reserve I, bow plates would just perfect! I'm looking a mod essentialy for that in fact ;)
But you one is very nice, and I think I'm gonna live inside !

had to un subscribe.. something made my game crash and i still don tknow what it is.. but I dont think that there will be anything added to this mod anyway. so I wanted to say it is SUCH A BEAUTIFUL mod. so pretty... but now Im having a problem with the icon still being there. Im unsubscribed from steam and in my data files. but I have to keep deleting it from my data files. it keeps showing up. I just unfavored it.. now im going to see if that helps. idk why its doing this. this is a first for me. but I dont have many mods on my game.. just in my data files... ok.. I think like 20 is a lot.

I was wondering if you could add a decent sized display table in the armory.. or maybe its the smithing room.. with mini manniquins so I can have about 30 of view my clothing/armor.... ... yes im a girl .. love my clothes.. sometimes lol. and maybe more weapon racks.. the standing kind. though I've seen people put them on the wall to save on room.. just looking to show off some prettys... if not thats ok.
