How to Guides: Furniture and More

I've started making guides on the furniture and features i make in my houses in case anyone wondered how it was done or wanted to make their own.

No addons are required, no FX is used. I use EHT purely to get things perfectly aligned, it is not essential.

Hoping to add more to the collection soon.


Built-in Fish Tank



Easy Affordable Windows



Computer and Laptop



Stereo / Hi-Fi System

    Thank you @mayasunrising

    Haha yeah @NorthernNightmare it does use up a lot of items unfortunately, although you can use the grand alinor bookcases instead to save some space. They're much larger and have the same smooth wood grain. In my office house build here i used a mix of the two and you can't tell the difference. I think it ended up being less than 10 bookcases to box the tank in, with an extra 6 to make the parts next to it.

    i absolutely love these! I'm definitely going to recreate these in my homes. I was super excited to see these kinds of guides since I tend to try to create more modern themes.

    My current challenge is trying to create a piano. Preferably a closed on since adding keys would be too item intensive. I've got maybe 5-10 spaces to try to make one :\ Do you have any guides on pianos?

    @JaidaRayne You do amazing work. I would genuinely love to see what you could do with EHT. To me, your style and approach is akin to the amazing creations that @Chryseia can produce with custom FX. Both of you could seemingly cobble appliances, or even entire structures, together out of constituent parts with both eyes closed. ;-)

    @JaidaRayne it's not bad. I wonder if any of the alinor wood items would work for that polished look? What are you using for the little feet/pedals (can't remember what they are actually called)?

    @mergadeth haha yeah sorry it was a bit rushed, i reckon you could do a really nice version in that style though, the boxy style so that you don't have to worry about the fancy curved back bit. The pedals are the bottom of two stools, I used the green quality 'Redguard Stool, Sturdy' to make it affordable. They're just tipped over and pushed into the floor.

    @R_K thank you very much, that's really nice of you to say. I actually use EHT already to get things nice and neat and lined up lol. It's truly a wonderful addon. I turn off the addon when i record as it's not my addon and i don't want anyone thinking it is lol. But with your permission i'd love to show off the sort of things it can do.

    I have no idea how to do all the fancy FX stuff though, it's probably easy to learn but i'm far too much of a basic... girl lol.

    P.S. I fully support your endeavor to get some of it's features added to the base game.

    Thanks again.

    :)

    @JaidaRayne So glad to hear it! And feel free to show what the tool can do - my long-term goal with Essential Housing Tools is to get as many of its features into the base game as possible; so, the more players that are aware of it and that advocate it, the more likely that outcome is (at least that's my theory anyways).

    Also, a super quick demonstration of FX, if you have a spare 60 seconds...

    Yeah, this is what always puts me off trying anything like this.

    I feel like I would be doing something wrong, if I didn't attempt to light and furnish the entire interior of a house (at the very least), so have largely just resigned myself to keeping things fairly simple, in most houses.

    I indulge in a few small fruit bowls and stacked plates, here and there and that is about it. xD

    I was inspired to make a gift shop, on my island, which is quite object-intensive, so I guess I could have been more adventurous there.

    However, it doesn't really feel like the place for a fish tank and the places that do, don't tend to have a big enough slot-to-space ratio.

    Maybe I'm just a furnishing slot coward, at this point?! xD

    I know, that function is near the top of my wishlist.

    Just the process of dying furnishings itself would be satisfying, let alone what you could then do with them.

    @Tigerseye haha yeah the item count can be so frustrating, i find the largest houses are the worst, the space to item count ratio just feels really off. so hard to fill the whole space.

    I did make the fish tank, stereo and computer all within one house, as well as a coffee machine, desk, filing cabinets and stuff. It's an office in Hammerdeath Bungalow, item count 200, uses the whole space. I've put a link to the video tour below in case it's of any help to you. You'd be surprised how much you can fit into those smaller houses.

    Although if you don't have ESO plus for double item count... eep!

    Open for video

    @mayasunrising thank you! I can tell you what items I used but it’s hard to describe how it goes together.
    The “body” is three alinor wardrobes stacked together with two acting as endcaps on either side of the middle one to cover up all the ends and odds of everything else. The legs is a alinor cabinet flipped upside down. The middle part where the keys are and the shelf for the sheet music is two alinor pews. One upside down with the book rows set into it and the other just flipped on its front for the shelf part.
    -3 alinor wardrobes or bookcases
    -1 alinor cabinet noble
    -2 alinor pews
    -2 book rows, long

    @JaidaRayne Oh wow! That's probably the best looking sink I've seen so far. I've tried to make versions with a modern faucet but couldn't find anything with the right shape(s). I end up using alinor fountains. Thank you for this. I'm going to have to see if i can revamp my sink in my Alinor townhouse. I put a video tour of it up as well in case you wanted to check it out.

    Please keep posting more of these! I check back often <3

    This is really amazing but if you're using add-ons there will be something that's not possible on console. Is there anyone out there who is on Xbox and makes videos of cobbled-together items in their houses? Sorry to hijack your thread @JaidaRayne . I really love what you do but can't do it on my Xbox.

    Hi @LadySinflower Thank you, I'm glad you like them. Just in case it's not clear my guides don't require an addon. There's no fx or anything, what you see is what you get. It's just items available in the game, cobbled-together as you say. :p

    Console players can make them, they'll just have a harder time getting things perfectly aligned is all.

    Edit: I've updated the original post to say 'no FX' to try to make it clearer. Thanks again.
