** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', you can buy a house. A house affords you a safe space to rest without drawing the ire of the aggressive CityGuards, stockpile loot, and otherwise serve as a status symbol. Houses are purchased from banks, or obtained as a gift upon achieving the highest rank
in unmodded ''Morrowind'', but building a stronghold involves financial transactions). Their usefulness varies - in [[TheOrder knightly order]].

''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' allows you get free stuff when you to build your own stronghold as part of the [[TheClan Great House]] questlines. In each case, it requires a stronghold, but sum of money to fund the construction, a land deed from the Duke, and you'll need to complete a series of quests (differing depending on the Great House you joined) in order to make the stronghold viable, attract settlers, and remove threats/obstacles to it. Given that it is the first game in the series following the [[VideoGame3DLeap 3D Jump]], it allows plenty of opportunity to become an [[AnInteriorDesignerIsYou you have to buy the furnishings]] for Interior Designer]], displaying all of your houses in questing treasures and turning it into your own SuperheroTrophyShelf.

The [[WreakingHavok physics engine]] unfortunately makes displaying your treasures ''far'' more difficult than it was in ''Morrowind'', as attempting to place items next to other items has a tendency to knock them around, if not send them flying across the room. (Once again, {{Game Mod}}s exist which make this process ''far'' easier. In fact, some of the modders were hired by Bethesda to improve the system for ''Skyrim''.)

Once again, it is quite costly, but you can at least find many of the building materials yourself to save money. You can build anything from a simple one-room cabin-like house to full blown mansions with dedicated trophy rooms, {{Mage Tower}}s, libraries, shrines to the gods of your choosing, and much more.

* Some ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games feature this. ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonFriendsOfMineral Town'' had one that would pretty much take all of your money and lumber. The other houses had special requirements to unlock them. ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAnimalParade'' has some around town.
