Summerset Cabin

With the Dragon's convenient appearance, you've miraculously escaped Helgen. But what now? As a fugitive on the run, you're looking for shelter, but will a cave really do, long-term? After all, it's a long way to the 5000 bones you need for Breezehome...meanwhile, where do you store your loot? What about all those dilapidated shacks scattered through Tamriel? Absent landlords be damned, if you find one, your moving in and taking over.

Summerset Cabin in one such abandoned domicile. Perhaps it was a homesteader's toehold, or a bandit hide-out, or a thief's den, but now it's yours. What will you make of it?

FIRST YOU HAVE TO FIND IT. Running away from Helgen, turn left and keep north along the snow line, if you'd like to come upon it by accident. To get directions, go to the Guardian Stones and take the road north to the sign post. Touch it for a map marker.

The Cabin is in awful shape, as one might expect, but with a little elbow grease, you can cut back the trees and start to repair. By the end, it won't be a palace, but it will have all the amenities, including varied storage, crafting stations, a full smithy with smelter and a garden. You can customize the decoration with a hunter's spoils or a herbalist's simples. It is lore friendly, and best of all, NO LOAD SCREENS.

Navameshed, weather clipped, and cleaned with TESEdit, it will be compatible will any mod that doesn't directly affect cell <Wilderness 1, -18> or the weather system (I have posted a separate version of this mod that will work with CoT) .

Thank you to Xilante, for the original weather script and (especially) Darkfox127, not only for the CoT version, but also the Riverside Shack, which was my inspiration. Thank you also to Anthony Bellingham and all the great modders who generously post scripts and tutorials. You have made modding so much fun.

This version of Summerset Cabin is for vanilla Skyrim weather, and requires Hearthfires DLC.
A Climate of Tamriel version has been posted separately.

Please rate if you like it. Thanks.

while i love this mod and consider it 1 of the essentiel mods for skyrim there are a few tweaks it could do with to make it shine more. there would be.

1.) replace the chair by the door with the throne by the fire
2.) bigger garden area
3.) small quest and backstory for the cabin which brings in why there is also a small unmarked grave near it

This Mod is a MUST Have! The best starter home mod the game has to offer! I agree it wouuld be GREAT to see it included in Special Edition - Still, without a doubt one of the best mods ever created - the wash bucket alone, elevates this mod into top ten!

Hi nicola_mcnally, sorry I missed your comment.

Thanks very much! This is the mod I personally use every time I play. It's my daughters' favourite mod as well (they don't actually get to play, just watch sometimes). It took me ages! It will be the first one I transfer to SE.

Hiya EJH
Just wanted to post to agree with all the positive comments from other people here, I really like this mod. I have been looking for ages for a simple home that you can use right from the beginning of the game and this one is perfect, not too difficult to get for a level 1 character but still requiring a little bit of work and time to completely upgrade.
Thanks again for all your hard work. Thanks! :)

Hi scarlettcarson11,

Thank you for the absolutely lovely compliment. Sorry I missed reading it until now.This is my favourite mod of my own to play. It always fills me will a keen sense of anticipation every time I "discover" the cabin anew. I've recently upgraded my graphics card and can now actually run SE. I will look into what it will take to make the conversion.

as a long time player and absolute fan of all things skyrim i consider this to be 1 of the essenital mods for the game. the total emersion/ feel/ look/ lore frindly aspect of it adds extra texture to the already diverse game and give both a welcome respite and relaxed quest after the frantic mayhem of escaping Helgen. everything included is to be admired and frankly others in the Modding commuinty could learn a lot from having this mod installed. the ONLY negative thing is that sadly there isnt a version for the Special Eddition version of Skyrim and seeing as i consider this mod an Essential Mod for skyrim i wish this was changed or an exact copy made for the SSE. over all verdict 9/10 aka 1 of the few ESSENTIAL mods for skyrim, highly recommended

Hi Wyspr,

Sorry I missed your comment. Yes, there is one glitchy wall still. I need to add a collision box. I will do this eventually...before I put it on Nexus or upgrade to SE (now that I can run SE)

Thanks wall socket,

I use it myself every play-through. I just think it's the most fun and satisfying mod I made. Glad you like it too.

Have one issue where my companion that lives there doesn't seem to have any specific pathing. He just warps through any of the walls. Any suggestions?
