So Hearthfire is finally available as the second DLC expansion pack for Skyrim after the release of Dawnguard, which has yet to hit the PS3. At just 400 Microsoft Points, the new content is considered a bargain, but we are hearing that a few of you are having some problems when trying to get started with purchasing land and building a house.
We told you here in our initial article how to actually start the quest by talking to a courier upon entering a town, who should then hand you a note to get started on the new Heartfire content. This process appears to be fairly straight forward, just like starting the Dawnguard content, but some of you have told us that you have received no letters at all from a courier and are stuck on how to progress.

If this is happening to you, you should be aware that there are other methods to get the letter and right task needed to start building a house. You can talk to stewards instead about inquiring about purchasing land, as the letters may only appear automatically if you are a thane of a particular area.
If you don’t know how to hire a steward, simply take a follower to your current home and talk to them and you should progress to the next stage of the task. When you finally do get onto customizing your own home, you should be pleased with the amount of options available and the surprises in store when you are suddenly greeted by some unwelcome guests – not wanting to spoil anything.
As far as first impressions go – what do you think of Hearthfire so far? Have you had any problems receiving the initial letter from the courier, or are you already a happy home owner? We heard from one of our readers that the courier delivering the letter actually turn up naked, which we thought was pretty funny. Has this happened to you?
