This is a unique quality home full of surprises with access to an underground network that stretches throughout Whiterun and beyond. Hearthfire required.

What people are saying:
'..jaw dropping good ..my favourite breezehome. This mod has so many secrets, and it feels so cozy, and has a certain feeling no other breezehome offers.' - Physyx

'..I want to say how an amazing job you have done with Breezehome! It looks absolutely stunning!!' - StrangelyRandom

'I absolutely love this mod and where it is going. I walked up to the now charming Breezhome and stumbled through the dimly lit darkness ..into these warm, inviting rooms and through these halls and the odd hole to discover this room of beds...it is just brilliant and charming..' - Leinadx

- Hearthfire version available on the TES Alliance website.

Let's face it - Whiterun is a great place to live. It's strategically located in Skyrim, has great amenities, interesting people, and lots of rich history. Not to mention it's central location for adventuring and carousing! So why was Breezehome, sitting on such a great lot in the city, vacant and seemingly abandoned?

Well one things for sure - these people love their yarns and legends. You know, creepy milk-drinker tales in the night. One such story is that Breezehome is beset by an ancient evil that left it's previous owners dead or missing. Some crazed survivors even fled the city in their undergarments! Supposedly it has secret access to the long-abandoned Whiterun Burrows, and in the darkest depths is the key to it all. Few dare go there, Breezehome or the burrows, and none return from the lower reaches of the caves.

When Balgruuf the Greater learned the dragonborn had come and was aiding them, he saw potential to fortify his position in this gods-awful war. With his men and Farengar's magick they quickly restored the dusty old shack into an amazing home worthy of a hero of legend. The Jarl then instructed Proventus to make the new home only available to the dragonborn. By offering him thaneship and the alluring Breezehome, Balgruuf could secure his primary residence right here in the city - and gain a tremendous advantage over his rival Jarls. In addition, this deal would go a long way towards protecting the city against the dragons and invaders. And on top of it all he could finally clear out the tunnels under the city from bandits and creature infestations, without having to spare a single soldier. A venture clearly worth the effort.

* No mod conflicts aside from other breezehomes
* Fully meshed, bounded and occluded for best performance
* Room by room switched lighting, working showers and sinks to drink from
* Plenty of unique items like couches, lute racks and music boxes
* Dragon mask and claw holders, dragonstone and elder scroll holders
* Lore friendly and balanced
* A tavern with followers and extensive subterranean exploring
* TES5Edit cleaned

With tons of unique features, this reimagines Breezehome into an amazing dwelling. The general layout of the house is the same but everything has been remodeled and small touches lend to a more homely feel (like leather couches to nap on). B3 offers up a balcony herb garden on the roof with a vegetable garden on the side. The back yard has a nice bench and a well for wishing. Inside, a false floor grants secret access to the home's underbelly which houses extended living quarters for the Dragonborn and company.

From here is a hidden passage leading to an undercity network - the Whiterun Burrows. Hours can be spent exploring them. Your dovahkiin has the means - do you have the nerve and cunning to survive?

Finally, just inside the burrows from the front gate passage is the Minstrel's Rest - a charming underground tavern that's a favorite watering hole for many local bards (some available as followers). Sadie the barkeep has decent coin and will buy just about anything you want to sell.

B3 is safe, but always make copies of your saves before installing any mod or update. Game saves are found in the "\\My Documents\MyGames\Skyrim\Saves" folder for copying and pasting somewhere else.

Current Breezehome Owners - This mod works best when used for a character that has not purchased Breezehome (see known issues - HAVOK). If you want to use this for a character that already has Breezehome, either vanilla or modded, then follow these simple steps:
1) Cleaning day! Enter the home and start packing - Gear, books, flowers, etc. Anything left behind will be lost.
2) Go to Warmaidens and enter the following console commands: pcb whiterunbreezehome (press enter, then type) resetinterior whiterunbreezehome (press enter then close the console).
3) Wait an in-game hour, save to a new slot and exit the game.
4) Enter the game and load your new save, wait an in-game hour, then save over your new save and exit the game.
5) Install B3, load your new save. Enjoy your new home.
Note: Instead of Warmaiden's go to another city in step 2 if interior problems persist.

Uninstallation - IMPORTANT
1) Retrieve your gear and companions before uninstalling! Uninstalling will remove all items from the home and send them hurtling through cyberspace.
2) Save your game from another interior cell, like Warmaiden's.
3) Exit the game and remove B3, or remove the B3HF.esp from the "\\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\data".

Compatibility and Bugs:
B3 is compatible with any mod that does not alter Breezehome. Here are some notable effects with other mods:

UFO USERS - If you have fLokii's 'Ultimate Follower Overhaul' mod installed and hear a banging near the front of the home, it's due to the placement of the UFO Book "Field Command" within the subfloor, and the games havok engine is going nuts. Look around, the top cover is sticking out from the wood floor so you can pick it up and keep it to make the banging go away. Since this mod works with both the decorated and undecorated versions of Breezehome, you can also pick up the book before decorating the house to remedy this.

ENHANCED LIGHTS and FX - Be sure to use the "NoBreezehome version" to prevent strange objects and lights in the home (thanks Anamorfus!). Also Skyrim Project Optimization and Realistic Lighting Overhaul have similar versions available.

The WhiterunBreezehome, WhiterunBurrows and MinstrelsRest are large cells. B3 is developed on pure Skyrim with no mods. This is being released as version .9x beta for public testing (see known issues) and will be updated periodically. Updates will not replace or remove any player chests. Always keep your games saved before upgrading. Please provide feedback during this testing phase.

HAVOK - Items within the home have been havoked. Any clutter, messes or oddities are likely due to leftover items from a previous Breezehome version (see installation Read Me).

LIGHTING - Lighting results are unique to every rig, so adjusting your ENB, lighting mods and in game brightness may give better results. The burrows are intentionally dark as they should be. Breezehome lights are initially off - use the light amps to turn them on.

MANNEQUINS - All mannequins are default vanilla for mannequin mod compatibility.

KNOWN BUGS - This version (.99c) may have the following bugs that are being worked on: Some weapon rack weapon placements may be misaligned; Some mannequins may move around (workaround: dress them at activator to reset); the Diamond Dragon Claw holder may not work properly; the privy room door may get stuck closed (workaround: highlight door in 1st person and type 'disable' in the console for room access); 1st floor stairway and front door may be misaligned (possible CK bug). Please report any other confirmed bugs with my thanks.

Enjoy B3

Thanks everyone I'm glad you are enjoying this. I'll move this over to Nexus in the coming months, maybe as-is without an update so I can focus on a next new project (which I'm sure you will love). This has always been my favorite mod to work on.

Mareile type this in console to get a key ID:
help "breezehome key"
When you have the ID type this in console:
player.additem (ID HERE) 1
Hope that helps.

Love so much this mod, but this time I will install it after doing "the wolf queen awakened", cause it seems that Potema Skull is bugged if I do the quest having the mod installed... dunno why, maybe RobinSage u modified something on the quest item to add it as a decoration in the claws & masks room... Still, love it and great work :D
