bought children's bedroom, still cannot adopt

Recommended Posts

After I bought a children's bedroom and went to my house, I saw that there was indeed a new room with a bed (owned). Adopt, however, I still couldn't. I searched the online discussions and saw it written in half a dozen different places that a mere children's bedroom isn't enough – it has to contain two beds and two chests before you can adopt. What nobody bothered to explain, though, was where am I supposed to get them. Proventus sells children's bedrooms, he doesn't sell beds and chests, and neither does anyone else I know.

 

"Whiterun Home Decorating Guide" says that the children's bedroom comes with two beds and chests. Well, it doesn't.

 

What am I supposed to do in order to get my children's bedroom to meet the adoption requirements?

did you also buy the alchemical table?

 

 

 

No, I did not. This whole house buying thing is new to me, so I thought I would start with the children's bedroom and see what happens. I haven't bought anything else yet. Besides, I read that the children's bedroom is supposed to replace the alchemy lab. I don't need an alchemy lab in my house because I can do alchemy in the castle.

The non-Hearthfire homes should come with all the furnishings, you can't make them for those homes. The Hearthfire homes you have to have the Bedroom built, beds and chests to send children there. The ID codes for the different rooms (entire rooms) are on this page for Breezehome: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Breezehome and there are some instructions on how to fix bugged rooms in the bugs section. Try disabling the children's room and enabling it again.

We're making a bunch of probably safe assumptions, but we might want to spell everything out to avoid confusion.

 

First, at least some of what you're reading online about needing a bed and chest might be for modders making player housing. Needing two beds would only apply to the Hearthfire DLC houses, as the main city houses do not give you the choice (besides kids or alchemy).

 

Since you mention Proventus, you're working with Breezehome?

 

Which child are you trying to adopt? Have you tried any other kids? Which dialog options do you get, and do you get anything about adoption, but it fails?

 

If you're trying to adopt from the orphanage, have you killed Grelod yet? Spoken to Astrid? Aventus?

Yes.

Lucia. I haven't tried any others yet. I get the usual dialogue: "I could adopt you if you want" - "Do you have a place where I could live?" - "No, I don't" - "Oh well, thanks anyway, I suppose".

Now I get it. The room in my house is not Child's Bedroom. It is Housecarl's Quarters. I didn't know that it comes with the Thane of Whiterun's title, therefore I mistook it for the Child's Bedroom which I had bought. Apparently, I have paid for Child's Bedroom (twice, actually) and it hasn't appeared.

 

I just noticed that I don't have the Unofficial Hearthfire Patch. Maybe that's the reason.

 

Anyway, thanks for the tips. Looks like I have some research and experimenting to do.
