The Tower contains a small alchemy area. But it has enough containers to store your ingredients.

Latest version of skyrim
Doesn’t require any DLC

The mod is compatible with riverhelm

(Probably mods - especially player homes - which are located in the same area.)
Riverwood Real Forest

Known Issues or Bugs
- First: If you have any problems, try to change load order
- Because of the high grade of detail, performance may suffer in the mod
- Some of the weapon racks are designed for a “specific” type of weapon. 'If you place a bow in a rack designed for a dagger, it doesn't fit.
- Some weapon racks are also pretty small. I didn’t want to have the large, chunky weapon racks everywhere. The disadvantage of this is that sometimes it's difficult to take weapons out of the racks
- If you equip the guard or the merchant NPC, they will be set as player teammate. So if you draw your weapon, they will also draw their weapons. I don’t see that as a “bug”, I think it is even more atmospheric.
- Known “bugs” with moving mannequins, they could also undress the armor after some days, but they won’t lose it! The Armor is then in the inventory of the mannequins.
work, but this makes for confusion. I'll fix that by the next "mini update"[/color]
- If the livestock dosen't shows up in the Byre just save and load the save game.[/color]
- Some players have the sound of the wind also at other places like riverwood. The cause is still unclear.
For a temorary fix you can download the optinal "flaho_shi_eagles_nest_wind_fix" file. This optinal file place a silent *.wav file form the "ambr_wind_mountainheavy_lp.wav" to the following directory: "Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Data\Sound\fx\ambr\wind\mountain\heavy" This File will overwrite the effect in the whole Skyrim. But If you delet the file out of the folder, or uninstall the mot with NMM everything is normal aigain.
- If you use BOSS you get this warning:
Warning: This file contains 1 deleted NavMesh record that TES5Edit cannot repair automatically and it may cause problems with your game. NavMesh deletions should be reported to the mod author. A guide to repairing NavMesh deletions with TES5Edit is located here.
I checked it, and there are two navmesh in Riverwood affected. It isn't a big problem but I'll fix that with the upcoming update.

Closing word
This is my second mod at all. So maybe not everything is perfect, but I spent a lot of time to create a atmospheric player home. If you like it, leave a comment. I'm glad about any feedback ;)

do you have to restart the whole game or is it able to play with a pre made save? My game wont actually load the character and stuff in?

the mod "custom family home" normally gets the job done, and you pick the areas where the family will hang out.
