I have read a lot of Forum stuff on Homestead. What does it mean people will want to upgrade there furniture, do they mean from white to green etc. What will these upgrade do? why would it be worth it?

    Many furniture types have a version of each quality, which get fancier as you go up the quality tree. For example, a dunmer chair may have a basic, white quality that is basically a few boards thrown together, and then a green quality that adds a little decoration, and the a blue quality that has a seat cushion, and a purple quality that has embroidery on the pillow. They're all basically the same item, and all of them serve the exact same function... the higher quality ones just look nicer.

    Homestead itself is all about building up the best home you can to suit your tasts, so asking what these upgrades "do" is like asking what a manor does over a small house. It's just nicer stuff. So, if you intend to spend time decorating your house, you'll eventually want the nicer stuff over the basic stuff, because it looks fancier. That's all it means. If that's not your cup of tea, no need to worry about it. :)

    My Girls:
    "Will you be going to Summerset?"

    Nephikah the Houseless, dunmer assassin: "Ugh. I have little interest in being looked down upon by a bunch of altmer. My own kind do that enough already."
    Swum-Many-Waters, argonian healer: "Perhaps. It seems there is daedric trouble afoot, and I do ever feel the need to lend a claw."
    Silh'ki, khajiit warrior-chef: "This one looks forward to working with Raz again!"
    Peregrine Huntress, bosmer hunter: "I have often wondered what it would be like to hunt a griffin..."
    Lorenyawe, altmer scholar: "I suppose I could be convinced to go. There are strange planar anomalies afoot, and I rarely turn down an opportunity to study such things."
    Lorelai Magpie, breton thief: "The riches of Summerset are infamous. I'm already planning ways to steal them."
    Rasheda the Burning Heart, redguard knight: "Where Swum-Many-Waters goes, I go, and I, too, find myself drawn to defend against a daedric threat."
    Hex-Eye Azabi, khajiit daedric priestess: "Perhaps. But it would not be to defend the island from my lady Mephala, oh no."
    Yngva Stormhammer, nord bandit (reformed...ish): "Bah. I don't want to deal with more stodgy high elves, but if my queen asks me to..."
    Madam Argentia, dunmer aristocrat: "The courts of the altmer are even more cut-throat than those of the Imperial City before the soulburst. I might go just as a matter of curiosity, but I do not suspect I will stay for long."
    Mazie gra-Bolga, orc scout: "Go to an island full of high elves? What kind of crazy do you have to be to want to do that?"
    Felicia the Wanderer, imperial witch-for-hire: "If I get a contract, sure. Otherwise, nah."
    Calico Jaka-dra, retired khajiit pirate: "This one was not planning to, but it seems fate has pulled her here. There's nothing like adventure to draw one out of retirement!"

    Right now the functional aspects of the homes appears to be:
    Teleport back to it.
    Setup crafting stations
    Setup craft stations of specific set types.
    Target dummies amd dps reports.
    Setup your assistants for others to use

    More function may come later.

    Size may play a role in some of these.

    I could see a Guild collecting tons of loot and buying a large home or estate, then setting up things like crafting stations attuned to the PVP zone tables - so that their guild mates ca use those without going into Cyrodil/IC etc. Same for DLC one IF you can use them without the DLC. (Not sure)
    They could also have several target dummy setups - one solo, one trio etc.


    I myself would like to setup stations for Clever Alchemist, so i can craft at it without the usual fight thru bad guys at the citadel.

    But it is possible that some homes might not have the space for lotsa crafting tables etc.

    IDK.

    With regards to the DLC stations, ZOS confirmed that players without the DLC could use them.

    With regards to the assistants, the last PTS patch changed the Fence Assistant earned from the Thieves' Guild line to only be used by other players who also have him unlocked.
