Where to Get Quarried Stone in Skyrim

Quarried Stone: At Drafting Table & Carpenter Workshops

The most common place to find Quarried Stone, among other primary materials, is at the drafting table and carpenter’s workshops at homesteads. Homesteads have chests near them that have all the materials one needs to build a basic house. There is usually enough quarried per one house to work on a mediocre project. However, you can be clever and gather quarried stones from different homesteads that you find and then use all of them to build one main house.

Quarried Stone Through Mining

Mining is the only other way to get it if you’ve collected all of the Quarried Stones from the homestead chests. The mining nodes for Quarried Stone can be challenging for some to locate, but if you look long enough, you’ll find dozens of them in the Skyrim map.

The first locations for mining Quarried Stone should be near homesteads. If you head to the Lakeview Manor, you’ll find a Quarry where you can mine Quarried Stone. In the Windstad Manor, you’ll find an Anvil, next to it is a Quarried Stone.

Once you deplete the homesteads and mines near them, we suggest you head to the Battle-Born Farm or Embershard Mine for your next mining location. These places have an unlimited supply of Quarried Stone that refills every few days. However, always bring along a Pickaxe for mining.

How to Use Quarried Stone

The primary use of Quarried Stone is in building the three leading houses: the Heljarchen Hall in The Pale, Lakeview Manor in Falkreath, and Windstad Manor in Hjaalmarch. When you reach homestead properties, you’ll find small areas and corners where drafting tables, crafting chests, and workbenches are found. This is where you primarily use your Quarried Stone to work on blueprints or certain upgrades.
