A house on an 'island' like Stiches in Elsweyr

Hi all!

I got an interesting idea the other day. Wouldn't it be cool to have a medium-sized house on a rock island (like the one Stiches is build on but maybe a bit smaller).

Having a house high up surrounded by a see-through fence ( like the balcony of the Alinor house) would be so cool!

What do you guys think?

There are so much potential for medium houses in general all around Tamriel, it genuinely make me disappointed ZOS don't add more houses purchasable with gold. I am sure people would be more willing to splurge on crown store furniture if only they didn't have to pay $100 for a digital house....

    I think that's a great idea for a house. Unfortunately, I think ZOS is determined to stick with their current pricing model i.e. the harpoon model!

    More medium sized houses! The Stitches would be ideal for one.

    It would.

    There is a walled off medium/large house, up there, that would be so nice...

    Someone said it was used in a quest, but I don't remember going there.

    Whilst I am nowhere near the level of interior design awesomeness displayed on this forum, I am rather partial to owning & decorating houses in this game - and after doing a couple of massive ones, I find I much prefer doing the medium sized ones, as they feel just the right size 🙂

    It’s all utterly ridiculous.

    Exactly!

    I can truly see an Island house being added in but I would like to see Necromancer Island in the game too and it's all good to have both.

    Isn't Hunding's Palace a medium on an island?

    Well, it's technically a Large, which I tend to prefer to Medium, actually:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YBf5fghDWFiZbLgVpmLemhcieKP-cojDojItGNpWgEU/edit#gid=0

    However, it is the size of a fairly typical Manor/Notable.

    So, could do with at least 700 slots, rather than 600, to do both the inside and outside (balconies, possibly roof, courtyard, seafront area etc.) properly.

    An example of a Large house, that is about the right size for its 600 furniture limit, is the Alinor Townhouse.

    I wouldn't object to a few more slots there, but it doesn't really need it.

    Then you have Mistveil, another Large, which (unusually) has a really generous slot to space ratio.

    So, I think most of it is a proportional thing - do the number of slots fit the space?

    I kind of wonder, when people say they want "medium houses", whether they actually mean they want Medium (as the game describes them) houses, like Grymharth's Woe and Ald Velothi (with 400 slots)?

    Or whether most actually mean Large (but not Manors/Notables)?

    Really, the game should provide all sizes, but just make sure not to exceed a certain space to slot ratio.

    So, that would include adding more houses the size of Hunding's, but with a Manor/Notable furnishing limit.

    Of course, it's even more complicated than that, as the Topal Island is enormous, but the furnishing limit feels OK there, as it only has 5 huts and a few terraces and things that need furnishing extensively.

    Most of the outside space can be, virtually, left wild.

    So, it's more about the size of the building(s) and the number of flat spaces/terraces that you feel you need to furnish, for it to look complete, than it is about the overall size of the plot.

    For example, you could have a house the size and design of of Hunding's (with the courtyards, balconies and tower), but placed on a large island plot (like Topal) and 700 slots would still probably be enough.
