    I believe this are things they will add in future. The devs were very clear about their desire to add more and more features in Homestead, especially building blocks. I can only hope for ropes! I need ropes!

    What would be interesting for me to see is, that this furniture can actually be used - can one sit on these chairs, can one lay in bed, is one animated doing that?- if it is just furniture for display purposes, it is of no use for me - same for houses.

    And Elloa, I always like your videos, because they do a great job showing off what is offered - I still think, ZOS should hire you for doing this stuff professionally for them, well, you and Nick, as you both are a team.

    Nice review. I also am a GTH owner, and absolutely love it. I do have a few complaints however, such as: Only 700 item slots, invisible walls, and no means of mount transportation. But outside of those 3 things, I find everything else to be incredibly well done. I highly recommend it to anyone who's into decorating, and or just wants their own 'space'. There's plenty of space here, as well as areas to decorate. :)

    What about the furniture - can one sit on it, can one lay on bed, is it animated?

    @Lysette Yes, there are pieces of furniture which are interactive. These include: Chairs, crafting stations, lighting options (e.g. chandeliers), dummies, special pieces of furniture, etc. However, you can't walk up to a bed and have an option to lay down as you would with a chair; sitting. You'd have to perform an emote of sorts, if you want to lay upon a bed. Where as a chair/couch/sofa, you need only approach it and interact with it.

    Beautiful video! Thank you so much for posting these.

    While I own the island, and absolutely love it...there is one thing about it that really baffles me...

    I wonder why they would build this incredibly beautiful island, with so many gorgeous views, and then have the two main huts with doors, have their windows boarded up. I simply cannot understand why, at the very least, they don't have light streaming in the windows like a normal house. :( It is not like they are instanced. And while it may not be possible to have them simply open-air like the other huts (which I don't understand why you can't, when the others are this way), I just don't understand why there is absolutely no daylight at all coming through the windows.

    You are on a beautiful tropical island, the sea breeze is softly blowing, and you go into one of the door'd huts and it is like walking into a tomb.

    oh yes, I just discovered that - I can finally sit in an inn, watching the dancers and listen to the music, that was desperately needed for immersion, to actually sit in a correctly themed chair and not be forced to use the pseudo-chair emote for it. This makes me want to look into carpentry a little more and maybe even get a house somewhere nice. Not the island though, I think it is massively overpriced - but as you said in your video, it might not be meant for just one person, but a guild.
