[edit] Quick Walkthrough

  2. Purchase the land from the steward.
  3. Visit your new property, and use the drafting table to begin building your house.
  4. Use the carpenter's workbench to build the foundation of your house. Continue building your home to your liking.

[edit] Detailed Walkthrough

Laying the foundations

Once you've obtained the favor of the Jarl of Hjaalmarch, Falkreath Hold, or the Pale, you will be given the right to purchase a piece of land in the hold. In Morthal, you will need to see the steward about obtaining permission; in Falkreath and Dawnstar, it is the jarl who grants permission. After receiving permission, you may purchase the land from the relevant steward for 5,000 gold. The plot will then be marked on your map.

Upon arriving at your new property, you will be instructed to use the drafting table to begin building your house. Your only option will be the Small House Layout. After selecting the plans, you will be instructed to use the carpenter's workbench to build the foundation of your house. This requires one sawn log and ten quarried stone.

Having done this, the quest concludes. However, there are many more construction and furnishing options to choose from. See the construction article for more information.

[edit] Achievements

Two achievements are unlocked while completing the three versions of this quest:

  • SR-achievement-Landowner.png LandownerHF (10 points/Bronze) — Buy a plot of land
  • SR-achievement-Land Baron.png Land BaronHF (10 points/Bronze) — Buy three plots of land

[edit] Notes

  • If you achieve level 9, and have not yet started the Falkreath version of this quest or the Falkreath thane quest, then a letter will be sent to you from the current Jarl of Falkreath by courier. Opening it and reading it will set the Falkreath version of this quest to stage 15. If Siddgeir is still Jarl, then when you go to him to try and curry his favor he will not require you to get him a bottle of Black-Briar Mead but will instead want you to deal with a bandit for him.

[edit] Bugs

  • If you've started or completed this quest in one of the other two holds, Siddgeir will treat you as if you'd read the letter, not offer you Rare Gifts, and treat you as a friend.
