It was in the running with some truely exceptional mods, and ran at a dead tie for quite some time along side Vince Bly’s amazing jewel, The Abandoned Mountain Shack: http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=22846

Stop by TesNexus for feature information, screenshots, and details! http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=22372

Version 2 now has interactive features! Since I had SI installed for the first time since the release of version 1 and it was also my annual mod updating time, I decided this needed features like all my other homes. 🙂

Fans of version 1 will discover that aesthetically not much has changed, but the experience of living in the isles has been greatly improved!

Millstone Farm and Millstone Farm COBL Named ORE’s Country Homes Challenge Winner

January 12, 2010 at 4:06 am (Housing, Mod Releases)

The quintessential country cottage, with it’s working water wheel, ivy covered walls and quaint decor. There is so much to see and do in this unique home. Start by uncovering an intriguing and somewhat dark history behind the home. When you have ownership of the home it is time to explore the many, many unique and interactive aspects. From general household chores like baking, doing laundry, sewing and cooking, to caring for the animals and tending the garden. Not to mention soap making, pottery, painting, crafting and so much more! This house is the role players dream and will keep you entertained for a very long time.


Millstone Farm, winner of Oblivion Real Estate’s Country Homes Challenge, is now available at Nexus. Also available to those who have downloaded while it was an Oblivion Real Estate exclusive are the compatibility patches for Unique Landscapes “Ancient Yews” and Millstone Farm.

I’ve also made a COBL version available.

For those new to Millstone Farm, it’s most likely the most interactive house mod made. Every corner offers some variety of crafting or activity, and there’s something for almost every character to enjoy. The readme is 20 pages, but for ease of reading to learn if Millstone is right for you please visit the online readme and read the features list:


There’s many more screenshots available at Nexus…but to really understand the level of playability you must read the feature list!

The Woodcutter’s Cabin

December 14, 2009 at 11:05 pm (Housing, Mod Releases)

New mod, up on Nexus. Ahh power modding at it’s best. I thought I spent two weeks on this, then I looked at the date I actually started and the time I took off it…only a week. Enjoy Christmas in the mountains (or everyday really!)

You arrive in Cheydinhal and overhear a rumor that a man they call The Woodcutter has gone missing. Once you find him
you gain entry into a snowy mountain valley, where a rustic cabin awaits you! This cabin is well suited towards fighter
types, role playing nords, or anyone looking for a less feminine place for their characters to call home.

To start the quest visit Cheydinhal. If you’re already in Cheydinhal or in a house within Cheydinhal’s walls you’ll
over hear this rumor. A map is included to the mountain pass. Once you’ve found the woodcutter, you may instantly
fast travel to the pass once you’ve been given the location. Once through the pass, follow the path to find the cabin.

You will need Tamriel’s border regions disabled to reach the mountain pass. It sits just outside the border.


* The house sits inside it’s very own world space for you to explore…a snowy mountain valley. (If parts looks familiar
it’s because I copied Pale Pass and started from there…this mod was completed in under two weeks.)

* You may chop wood at the chopping block if you have an iron war axe equipped.

* You may light or un-light the fires inside the cabin if you have the wood, or a shovel to put out the fires with. If
not, you’ll burn yourself. (A shovel is by the front door.)

* You may repair your weapons at the repair anvil. When activated, a repair hammer will be added to your inventory if you
do not have one.

* You may forge iron weapons at the forge…if you have iron ore. There is a mine located within the mountain valley where
you may collect iron ore…but you have to work for it!

* There is a working sauna included underneath the house (great for avoiding those chilly floors!) You control it’s on or
off status.

* You may craft fur armor on an armor dummy inside the house if you have enough pelts to use. In a jam for some pelts? Try
exploring the area, you might just encounter some hunting!

* You may fill a crude metal tankard (don’t worry, there are plenty around the house!) with mead at the keg in the kitchen.
When you drink the tankard of mead, you receive an empty tankard to use again. If you’ve sold all your tankards or lost them,
there is a respawning case of them behind the bear skin curtain on the right side of the bed. This is the ONLY container that
respawns so do NOT store items in that crate. It is properly labelled.

* If you have lit the fire in the kitchen, you may take a chunk of venison off the roasting meat in the fireplace.

* A doored cabinet contains your alchemy and medicinal supplies:
Activate the bandages to have your health restored
Activate the ointment of energy to have your magicka restored
Activate the ointment of dispel to dispel unwanted magical effects
Activate the ointment of cure disease to cure yourself.

There is also a chest here designed specifically for ingredient storage.

You may also activate the mortar and pestle in the cabinet to open up a static alchemy menu, meaning you can
use it to perform alchemical experiments without needing to carry and equip alchemy equipment…just your

11) You may sleep in the bed, or curl up in front of the fireplace for a quick nap.
This mod has been cleaned with Tes4edit

Clamshell Cottage Files Of The Month

October 7, 2009 at 2:06 am (Housing, Mod Releases)

I’ve been meaning to stop by and blog about Clamshell Cottage getting the most votes for September 2009’s Files Of The Month at TesNexus. Thanks to all who voted! While it didn’t win the Oblivion Real Estate Water Homes challenge, it was a very difficult modding time and this honor feels really nice! I started receiving threats during that time from an over zealot forum goer, began getting ill, and I actually dropped out of the competition for a few weeks before I decided it was best to re-enter about a week before the deadline to not let other people have power over what I like to do.

Then, it got a bad rating on nexus from someone. When politely questioned, they responded they just didn’t like it and that’s all they had to tell me. Well, to rate a file on Nexus you have to first download it. Everything about the cottage is shown in the screenshots, there’s no hidden environments…the ambiance you see is what you get. So this person took the time to download it, wait a few hours, and then come back to rate it poorly. That as a modder was quite upsetting, because negative ratings usually reflect technical issues with mods.

So for all who voted- you are awesome in so many amaz-a-zing ways. I really can’t thank you enough! You made all that hassle so much more worth it. I appreciate the support, thank you again!

If you haven’t checked out Clamshell Cottage here’s a link. It comes in COBL flavor too…
