Description
Sitting on the edge of a high precipice is a house that is simple, but still somewhat ornate. There are no load doors to go through, no load screens to sit through, and the view changes depending upon the time of day, or night. IT DOESN'T RAIN INSIDE THE HOUSE, but you'll see the clouds move, hear the crickets and birds and look out upon a great landscape. All crafting stations in one area.

Thousands of people have downloaded the original Grey Ledge Manor, and enjoyed the benefits and realism that a home with no load doors provides, but for many, the resource drag upon their systems proved to be too much, resulting in lag and frustration. Grey Ledge Manor Two is a leaner, cleaner, and faster version of the original manor.This is a completely new Manor built from the original model.

It may look quite a bit like the original, but it was made with less items, less landscaping, and with the experiences learned from the first Manor. It is a smaller download than the original and much faster.

If you downloaded the original and have had no problems, then you do not have to download this mod. It is incompatable with the original.

But, the most convenient thing is that this set-up allows for everything that you need to be within a few steps. Including fast-travelling out.
ALL crafting stations are situated in one area, with plenty of labeled storage. There are plenty of book shelves, weapon racks and four shield racks. There are three mannequins available to display your favorite armors, a garden. Hell...it even has an outhouse!
Companion friendly, with a great view of Skyrim out the many windows and balcony...or even from atop the roof.
FEATURES:
NO LOAD DOORS! Go anywhere at any time from anywhere in or around the house.
ALL crafting stations in one convenient location with labeled storage.
Blacksmith merchant who is also a potential follower.
All shrines in one spot.
Companion friendly.
3 mannequins
14 weapon racks
6 shield racks
2 display cases
8 bookshelves
Outhouse with reading materials (Ha!)
Great views of the landscape from balcony and real windows
New merchant quarters and second balcony
Includes suitable area for your horse, as well as 3 chickens and two goats
Large garden full of common and rare plants
Fully equipped kitchen area
19 chests, containers, and a safe –most are labeled. There are NO RESPAWNING CONTAINERS, CHESTS, BARRELS, OR SACKS in this house. All are safe and will not be changed or moved!

*******Easy to get to, a map marker pops up after installation. Directly south of Solitude. East of Marthal. Across the river from Dead Man’s Respite and Crabber’s Shack. Working on a quest.*******

If you would like to try out the original Grey Ledge Manor, it is available here:

Remember…The original Grey Ledge Manor has a totally different .esp file and is not compatible with the new version. In order to move from that house you will have to load up all your stuff, disable the mod, and load the new house from a saved game made in another location.

Two other versions are available on Nexus-- Grey Ledge Basic and Grey Ledge Plus-- if you would like to try this home with a few less features. All three new versions share the same .esp so updating is easy. None are compatible with the original.

Recommended Mods--------
To utilize the bookshelves, I encourage you to download Da5id's great mod "Unlimited Bookshelves," if you dont already have it. Its a simple script that changes everything concerning bookshelves and storage in the game. Place just about anything on the bookshelves and other areas that i've designated as "bookshelves." You can download it here:

or the nexus version:

Mannequins are creepy little buggers, But you can fix their erratic behavior and strange poses with this great mod:

(may not be as necessary with new Skyrim 1.6 patch)
********
Trying to get your spouse to move onto the side of a cliff can be a tough sell, especially if they've got plenty of high-society friends in Solitude or Windhelm. This mod will convince them to follow you anywhere!

If you need more mannequins, weapon racks, and bookshelves, you should try out my other mod, "Dragonius Tower." It is monstrous and has tons of themed display rooms.

a few notes...

Dragons-- yes, there will be dragons occassionally. My advice is that when a ten ton reptile comes flying above your house...get out!
Seriously. Fight him outside in the open ground, because if you hide under the bed, he will eventually fly into your house. Dragons have no collision barriers while flying. They'll fly through anything--mountains, trees, and even buildings. All a house maker can do is try to steer them a little. So, if a dragon engages you and you stay inside the house, don’t be surprised if he sticks his head through your bedroom. Do not stay in the house! You'll be a sitting duck....boom...roasted.

Conflicts---There are no additional scripts added to the game through this mod. So, there should be no reason for it to conflict with any mods other than those that might be built on the same spot. The reason that the place is not spouse-friendly is that the script used to provide that luxury from other mods is a major point of conflict (because every house has to use the same script).
Conflict Update---- This mod may conflict with the mod: "The Secret of Dragonhead" (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/16197). The exit to that dungeon covers some of the Manor's estate--in particular--the outhouse (Ha!)-- However i was able to enter the dungeon with no problems, others have reported CTD's.
Thanks to Euther on Nexus for the info.

Special Thanks---------
To everyone that has downloaded this mod and endorsed it. The response has been nothing short of incredible. The most refreshing thing about this experience has been the responses in the comments section on Nexus. In particular, there have been many people which have gone out of their way to help this idiot make this house so much better. Their help, advice, enthusiasm, and some cases, detailed walkthroughs, have made Grey Ledge Manor what it is, and it is very very much appreciated.
