After the cellar is crafted, it can be accessed using the floor trap door located at the small back room of the main hall. The cellar may be subject to random skeever infestations from time to time. If there are adopted children present, they will speak of being afraid to go into the cellar if skeevers are there.
The following is a list of all furnishings that can be added to a cellar. Furnishings can be built manually at the indoor workbench, this is the only way to furnish the cellar; the steward does not offer to help by purchasing them for you.
All furnishings are fixed in position and cannot be removed once they are built. The name of the furnishing option does not always accurately describe what will be added, as in some cases additional containers and accessories may be added, along with the main piece of furniture. These exceptions are too minor to list. The most important and difficult thing to fully construct inside the cellar is the Shrine Base with all the divine shrines on them.
If the child's practice dummy is built, adopted children may come down eagerly to the cellar to practice their fighting skills once they are given a weapon such as a wooden sword or any kind of dagger.
If a child accidentally hits someone or a pet with an enchanted weapon during their practice, the victim can get hurt. (A pet may even be killed.)
This is the only room in the house a steward cannot be paid to furnish.
Shelves near the forge may spawn random ores from time to time.
360 A work-around for this bug is to construct the Shrine of Talos before talking to Greta in Solitude.
360 The quest can be completed normally, but will not provide a reward or remove the Amulet of Talos. It will, however, be no longer marked as a quest item and can be dropped, sold, or used to construct the Shrine of Talos.
The mannequin might duplicate armor.
