Leyawiin Lake House ver 1.1


Leyawiin Lake House is located on an island slightly north of Leyawiin, accessible from a bridge close to White Stallion Lodge. Here, the weather is nicer than in the Leyawiin city, and you can enjoy the company of swans and ducks as you spend an evening outdoors viewing the Topal Bay. The house is filled with crafting facilities, and you have the option to buy your own sheep for wool production. You buy the house at Leyawiin Best Goods and Guarantees.

Leyawiin Lake House is made from one of Stroti's house models,
http://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/41086/? .It is companionfriendly, lorefriendly and includes an abundance of crafting facilities (ingame crafting manual is provided). It includes a double-bed and two bedrolls that can be enabled for companions to sleep on. There is plenty of storage space - +35 nonrespawning containers in the main area and +70 nonrespawning containers in the basement. There is also a small garden and a stable.

A COBL-addon is provided for COBL-users. It will add the following features:

- The Luggage - is located close to the entrance, under the stair, but is only available if you have found the original Luggage in Anvil.
- Alchemy sorter - is located at stairs close to the alchemy desk.
- A grinder is placed on the alchemy desk. 
- Dinnerplate is placed on the dinnertable.
- One of the kegs in the basement will give water if you are using a survival mod.
- The outdoor well will also provide water.

I have choosen to make a COBL-add-on instead of a full COBL-version. My main reason for this is that I tend to continue to tinker on and improve my mods, and then I don't want to have to alter two esps. Obviously, the add-on has to load AFTER Leyawiin House mod, else many of the COBL-functions won't work.
