A guide on all exterior furnishings available in the construction of the homestead in the Hearthfire DLC.
Exterior Furnishings for all Homesteads
The Animal Pen costs a single Sawn Log. It adds a Tanning Rack and also allows you to purchase a Cow and Chickens from your Personal Steward.
The Armorer Workbench costs 2 Quarried Stone, 1 Iron Ingot and 1 Sawn Log. This will allow you to upgrade and improve your armor from the comfort of your own home! You may also craft one of these in the Armory east-wing option.
The Garden costs a single Sawn Log and gives you a small fenced area with 11 plots of land that can be used to grow herbs and alchemical ingredients.
The Grindstone costs 1 Quarried Stone, 1 Sawn Log and 1 Iron Fitting. The Grindstone lets you improve your weapons. You may also craft one of these in the Armory east-wing option.
The Smelter costs 2 Iron Fittings, 5 Iron Ingots, 6 Clay and 4 Quarried Stone. Even though it is a bit more expensive than the other exterior furnishings, it should be one of the first things you construct for your homestead since it allows you to smelt ore into ingots - and you need a lot of iron ingots to construct and furnish your homestead!
The Stable costs 3 Sawn Log and 5 Nails to craft. This must be crafted if you wish to buy a horse from your Personal Steward.
