Heimskr's House is a house in Whiterun and the home of Heimskr, a priest of Talos. The small, one-room cottage is found in front and to the left of Jorrvaskr. It is one of three buildings that occupies the circle around the Gildergreen.




  • The house is marked with an "empty" Shadowmark.
  • The small house is furnished in a mini-church style format. There are 4 chairs arranged in pairs of two, facing towards an open space that is elevated up several small stairs, like a dias, where someone could address the onlookers.
  • There are four skulls lying around the house- one on a shelf immediately to the left upon entering the building, and three on the open space that the chairs are facing towards- which is very unusual for the average Skyrim townsfolk.

  •  PC   360   PS3   PS4   NX   If a Thieves Guild small job targeting this house is accepted after completion of Battle for Whiterun, it will be impossible to complete, as the house cannot be entered. In order to access it on PC, one may type coc whiterunheimskrshouse into the console, which will then teleport the Dragonborn into the house with it still being intact (however, there is a chance that this may also cause the game to crash). Alternatively, one can type setstage TGRBE 50 to complete the stage with success.
