Building your own house in Skyrim Hearthfire

Player housing is a new feature in Skyrim: Hearthfire.[1]. It lets players build their own homes.

To build a house, first you need to purchase a plot of land (or multiple plots for larger estates). Do so by obtaining a Deed. Locations for your house include lands in The Pale, Falkreath, and Hjaalmarch.
