Skyrim Hearthfire House Design Guide – How To Build


After you have bought the plot in Skyrim: Hearthfire, the construction work begins. Now, since the DLC primarily focuses on building houses, the construction task is not as simple as one may imagine. Although the visual design of the house remains the same, there are various layout combinations you can try.

You start up the initial small home (main hall) which can be transformed into the entry hall and after that, you can proceed with rest of the construction. You can check-out the step by step guide in our Building Materials Guide.

In this guide however, I am going to mention various room categories that can be used to make 27 different room combinations. You can use the different combinations to have a design (layout) of your choice. You can choose one from each category given below:
