Question The road to 'Land Baron'.

So, I have no way of fixing the Falkreath plot. I have completed the Civil war and Dark Brotherhood questlines before installing Hearthfire so as far as I'm aware there is no way to buy the plot. I was also already thane before I killed the Jarls mate, Hadvar(?). I have none of the odd outstanding misc. quests. And I have no old save!

So it looks like I'll be starting a new game just for 'Land baron' and 'Master architect'.

What I'd like to know is if anybody has any advice as to the quickest way of getting the three houses built? I plan on playing the first part of the main game then just heading to Falkreath, Morthal and Dawnstar. I've done a bit of research and I'll do Dawnstar last as I believe one of the quests to become thane requires level 22.

Any more advice anyone has would be greatly appreciated! Also if I find a quick run through I'll post it here to help others in my situation!

Done!

Right, I've done it! Basically, there's no quick way of doing it! I was at 18 hours when 'Master Architect' popped! This could maybe be cut down a bit as I made a few errors but you'll be looking at 15 hours minimum!

Best advice I have is to stock pile all iron you find and collect as much gold as possible. Also put some perk points into sneak so you can steal iron from blacksmiths.

Also do the dawnstar plot last as you will have to be level 22 to get the quest form the jarl.

And READ THE GUIDE!!! I thought I could get 'Master Architect' just by building the small house. WRONG!!! As clearly stated in the guide you have to build all three wings on all three houses. This costs a lot of materials but I believe the Library, trophy room and enchanters tower are the 'cheapest' so go for those!

I actually enjoyed revisiting Skyrim so this really wasn't too much of a chore.

Hope I've been some help to someone!
