Shacks are small structures in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

CharacteristicsEdit

Sometimes, shacks may be inhabited by hunters, bandits and fishermen or other characters and creatures. For the most part, they are "open" structures, meaning they do not have doors, so there are no loading screens required to enter the house. These houses can offer quick access to a bed and storage for the Dragonborn in some cases.

List of shacksEdit

Below are the known shacks in Skyrim. Open or closed in parenthesis indicates if the structure has a door leading to interior.
