Skyrim:Enchanter's Tower

< Skyrim: Hearthfire: Construction

The Enchanter's Tower is one of the West Wing additions you can build to expand your home from the Main Hall.

The Enchanter's Tower, like its counterparts, the Alchemy Laboratory and the Library, has a balcony area on its roof when completed. A roof canopy can be added to these towers if desired, but not adding the final roof canopy does not prevent the tower from being inhabited, allowing it to be an optional addition. Once you have built the roof, then you can build all interior items in the tower.

The following is a list of possible furniture items and decorations which can be added by using the carpenter's workbench in the Enchanter's Tower. It is not necessary to purchase or build all furnishing options; you can pick and choose to better dictate style. However, all furnishing options are in a pre-arranged location and only ingredients and standard items can be moved. Oftentimes, the name of the furnishing option only indicates the primary piece of furniture, and actually includes various additional containers and accessories.

  • Before constructing an Enchanter's Tower, you might want to consider that you can build an Arcane Enchanter in your Main Hall without it, which will actually be positioned only a few steps away from the one in the tower.


  • The texture on the decorative ring around the balcony area is placed inside out.
