    Spoilers will follow. Viewer discretion is advised. 



    This post is all about Hearthfire. What house did you build? What Hold? Who was your steward. What wings did you put on your house? What child(dren) if any? 

    I hope to hear about your House of Wonders and I'm sure the community would too.

    Windstad Manor (Hjaalmarch) and Lakeview Manor (Falkreath). Library, Greenhouse, Trophy Room, Fishing Pond at Windstad, only basic house at Lakeview. Stewards are the corresponding housecarls. No children

    My canon dragonborn Aurian built lakeview manor. He built an armory to have a place for all of his trophies from past hard fights, a bedroom for his daughter Lucia, and I believe a trophy room but I'm not entirely sure, it's been awhile... I made Ludia my steward, she was my only housecarl at the time and Aurian felt bad for leaving her in Whiterun after traveling with Serana (Lydia was like a sister to him and he felt bad for leaving her alone, plus he needed a babysitter :P)

    I had more guys with houses by the only one left has Windstad Manor with bedroom area trophy room(wanted to keep a reminder of what I killed) I call the house the "Hall of Heroes". Wanting to marry Aela (on that toon) have Eric as follower and the Housecarl from Morthal as steward.

    I plan on having more toons with houses but finding the right amount of ore/ingots always tires me =P

    Just warning... Aela turns into a huge bitch... And this is coming from a guy who hates calling women demeaning names.

    When I came home Aela was always complaining, hated her and loaded previous saves, when I was single.

    I guess they made her that bitchy so the whole Aela vs Serana thing had a clear winner...

    On my characters that use melee and magic I like to have an armory, trophy room and enchanters tower. Stealth characters get a greenhouse, alchemy tower and kitchen. The kitchen is awesome.

    Mages get all 3 tower additions.

    Your wings change depending on what type of character you are? Are you sure?

    i like to have wings that correspond to the characters skills. Example: If i play a guy that uses no crafting skills, I will add a bedroom, kitchen and trophy room as they don't benefit the crafting skills. If I use a character that uses alchemy and smithing I get the greenhouse, alchemy tower and Armory and so on. I like my additions to have at least some purpose other than cosmetic reasons. I won't add additions just because the porch is nice etc.

    I really haven't gone into the hearthfire dlc...I bought it, but it was on sale on the psn store. Seeing as how the dlc has officially ended...I'm glad I got it, should bring something extra.
