The Viking Turf Houses from my work in progress are now available as a separate preview mod. They are designed for the North but fully compatible with all other mods. Main use of this new house type is in early game or in situations where wood is rare. It needs generally less building materials than other houses because turf or peat is considered as a free material taken from the building site or from the surrounding area. Drawback of these special houses are efficiency in terms of living space and a penalty on happiness caused by the dark and smoky conditions inside. In this first version, they have the following properties.
