Alva's House is a house in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, located in Morthal. It is the home of Alva and Hroggar.


Alva's HouseEdit

Alva's house is much like a regular one-room house as seen throughout Skyrim except for the staircase leading down into the cellar. It has a double bed, a single bed, regular furniture, and storage containers. The room is cluttered with ingredients, food, and miscellaneous items.


In the cellar, there is a coffin in the center of the room along with some barrels and other storage types lining the wall. There are large splatters of blood on the floor.


Laid to RestEdit

The Dragonborn is tasked with investigating Alva's house after speaking with Thonnir.

  • In the cellar the area around the door is sometimes green—it appears as if part of the floor and wall do not load. As soon as you come through the door you will start to slowly sink under the house. After falling for a short time you will be spawned back where you came in and will start to sink again. To get past this simply jump forward landing on the rug and be careful walking around. To leave just use the door without coming off the rug.
