The Fox Hole is a starting-mid player home. It has all the cozy essentials near the start of the game without being too over-the-top. Oh, and an adorable pet fox that wanders indoors named Winston.

*** UPDATE 0.2 *** Because the bookshelves were redone, your books probably fell all over the floor. Simple pick them up and replace on the bookshelves. This only happened because I had to replace the shelf containers.

If you think you found a bug, please read the 'Known Bugs' before commenting.

This charming stone farm house sits in the middle of a river with scenic views and dock space for relaxing and fishing. A small fox family roams outside while your personal pet fox, Winston, enjoys the cozy fire and food on the inside. Indoors you will find two floors and a basement with everything you need for crafting and storage. Realistically, a brand new character fresh out of a near-beheading should probably not own a mansion. The Fox Hole is a perfect solution for an early-game home.

Please see the last screenshot for the map location.

. All tools needed for crafting including: Forge, Smelter, Grindstone, Workbench, Tanning Rack, Enchanting, Alchemy, and Cooking
. Enchanting and Alchemy tables have two satchels each with additional storage nearby
. Some form of storage on each floor for convenience
. A small personal library
. Companions and followers will follow you into the house
. A bed to gain Rested bonus
. A pet fox, Winston who will roam around from his kennel, food dishes, and bed
. Fully navmeshed indoors AND outdoors with idle markers throughout
. There are currently no mannequins, as they are far too buggy at the moment and I get WAY too many "mannequins are bugged" comments on my other mod

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

. If using Steam Workshop, simply press Subscribe
. OR Extract the file (thefoxhole.esp) to your Data folder and make sure it is checked in the Data popup of your Skyrim launcher.

. Make SURE you REMOVE everything from The Fox Hole 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 file (thefoxhole.esp) from your Data folder

Interested in donating? First, thank you so much for even considering a donation. They really help me make time to continue work on my current mods and future projects. :> Since my website is currently down for maintenance, any donations can be sent to my Paypal address sartell.rachel@gmail.com. If you have any questions or comments about the mod, feel free to comment or send them to: lithxemods@gmail.com.

I built this mod mainly for my own use, as I really wanted a simple modest home for my new character. I welcome any suggestions regarding addons and improvements, but I want to keep things relatively simple. :>

Feel free to check out my other house mod The Reserve, for something a bit more lavish. (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=10408)

I personally recommend the use of the mods: "Static Mesh Improvement Mod", and "Pure Waters", as the Static Mesh Imp. makes so many of the in-game assets look simply amazing, and the Pure Waters will make your scenic views that much better.

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

. May not work with other mods that change the landscape in or around this same location

I like how its not a clusterfuck of useless shit, good work.

Oh, another thought. That map on the wall, as several other house mods have done, could be a fast travel deal to some of the main cities without carriages, such as Falkreath, Morthaal, Dawnstar, and Winterhold.

Love this mod, perfect for when I need to get away from the family and staff at Lakeview Manor, and keep an eye on them at the same time (that necromancer is still sketchy). XD

I do have a couple suggestions though. Inside the house, on the top floor, there's a bench next to the bookshelves that, for me at least, doesn't work (doesn't give option to sit on it), and would be a great place to put a couple mannequins (2-3) instead of the bench. Also, the ladder leading to the roof area, while functional, leads straight into the roof. Would be nice if there was a trap door there, so it better leads outside, visually.

Nice mod

Randomly, would it be possiable with the requirement of needing Hearthfire to add a Oven near the kitchen area, it's the only peice missing to make this house entirely perfect IMHO.

I completely spaced on the "Fox family outside" part of the descrip for some reason. So I went O_O OMMGG!!!!!! when running up to the house the first time.. I love this.
