Requires The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (base game) to use this DLC
With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up - from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.
Choose Your Land:
Choose from property in the salt marshes of Hjaalmarch, the forests of Falkreath, or the vast tundra of The Pale. For the more ambitious landowner, purchase multiple plots and start building a real estate empire.
Customize Your Home:
Expand your home with a variety of room combinations including an armory, alchemy tower, kitchen, trophy room and more. Grow plants in your new greenhouse, cultivate slaughterfish in the fish hatchery, house your Arcane Enchanter in the enchanting tower, or display your latest conquest in the trophy room. Add additional features like stables, mills, smelters, gardens and more.
New Objectives and Interactions:
Guard your home from unwanted visitors like marauding kidnappers, armed bandits, and skeever infestations. Turn almost any follower into your personal steward to improve and protect your home. Or if you require more help, hire a personal bard or carriage driver to ease the burdens of home ownership.
Transform your house into a home with Hearthfire’s all-new adoption system. Adopt children and discover new ways to interact with your family. Play games with the kids, allow them to have pets and gain new bonuses from having a family.
Nice houses and pretty good customizationMurderbot735 | July 28, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
This piece of DLC is pretty simple, but it still feels like it adds a lot to the game. Having a home, or maybe ten homes, feels nice, but their only practical purpose is to store stuff at, or to have much stuff concentrated in one place. Anyway, the houses that can be built on the plots of land look great, and the customization is good. You have the main hall, and can then build other rooms in the different wings and a cellar. All the rooms feel very cozy, and can be customized with different furniture, which is placed automatically as you build it. The homes that can be bought in the cities look great too, but the customization isn't quite as extensive. Considering the small price for this, and the fact that Skyrim and its DLC is featured on pretty much every major sale, I don't see why you wouldn't pick this up. It makes Skyrim feel a lot more immersive, in my opinion.

You get 3 houses in this mod, but 2 of them pale in comparison to the one in Falkreath hold; Lakeview Manor. It also adds in adoption (which btw is a pretty nice feature) and new items. You actually have to acquire the materials through lots of gold or lots of time, or both! All in all, if you're looking for something simple but well-made, this is a great little expansion pack to get.
A simple dlc that adds a little more to the gameanticerber | Dec. 21, 2014 | See all anticerber's reviews »
No story here...no new bad guys, weapons, races, etc.....You get...a house....Some may think...that's it? Or I already own a place...But this is something you get to make...and despite being a bit tedious...if you really put yourself into the game...Living your character, it makes you feel like you have a home...like it's your home...a place you can come home to....put your belongings and it might sound weird but because of that it is actually my favorite dlc. Just to say if you aren't that type of gamer, and you just like beating the game, clearing objectives, and that sort of thing, this probably isn't for you....The only thing that could have made this better was a bit deeper of customization..
A fun DLC to bring into the world of Skyrimalanmaz567 | July 12, 2014 | See all alanmaz567's reviews »
In this DLC you are able to build your own house, there are a lot of rooms you can add to your house, in which you pick where you want to create those rooms and what you want to use them for. This DLC is definitely worth your money. This DLC give you the option to build 2 houses and in each land the house may look different. In this add-on you are able to adopt a child. You also have to protect your house from unwanted visitors such as bandits and giants. you can store your items or even create items in your house. I definitely recommend getting this DLC.
A good little DLCSganotak | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all Sganotak's reviews »
This DLC may not include an epic storyline with tons of new objects and quests like the other two and it Just gives you the opportunity to build your own house from scratch The three holds of the game that didn't have a purchasable property now offer you the choice to purchase a deed and build your own house there The housebuilding itself is pretty limited so don't expect it to have the depth of The Sims or Minecraft. However it's still pretty good since you have lots of different foundations, room types and interior design options Outside of house building and material collecting this DLC also adds some new options, like child adoption and hiring of a follower as a steward. There are also some fun new quests like protecting your property from raids or rescuing your family from kidnappers. A minor issue I had with the DLC is that sometimes items that you place in display cases or bookcases tend to glitch Hearthfire is a nice small DLC at a fair price that adds a lot of interesting features to the game
