I was able to get a house free of charge by completing the side missions.

"March of the Dead" and "served cold"

(Side Note: As stated in the comments below you seem to be required to have done the side mission "Final Descent" in Raven Rock mines before being able to start Served cold. Thanks again to EvilResidentUK and PJ76uk)

In order to get March of the Dead you have to go to Old Attius Farm (I was out wandering for the locations achievement at the time). It is roughly south of Raven Rock town, which you start in, located just left of a mountain range (Making the farm roughly in the middle between raven rock and the bottom of the island).

There you will encounter a Guard captain who is fighting spawn and you will have to help. After you help him, talk to him and he will ask you to investigate the spawn and the farm and if you find anything to let him know.
(I found a note on one of the bodies.)

This will continue the mission (that is relatively a short side quest) that upon completion will have you go back to the Captain, now situated in Raven Rock, who will tell you that "Adril Arano" wishes to speak with you. * (See below for how to start Final Descent if this does not happen)

Go and talk to this person (they are in Raven Rock too) and it will unlock Served cold. Make your way through this side quest and once completed you will be awarded a house which pops the achievement.

*EDIT: How to Start Final Descent -
I did this mission when on the mission from the Blacksmith to get his Axe back (which is linked to the Stalhrim Crafter achievement) as it required me to go into the mines to talk to Crescius.
Regardless the mission is in Raven Rock mines, located in the north part of Raven Rock if I remember rightly, upon entering you will see two people arguing. Talk to "Crescius" to start Final Descent.

User fightclubdoll commented with this walkthrough. for anyone having trouble getting the mission to start via Crescius. It appears finding and searching the remains of Gratian Caerellius. in the mines will get you the quest too.

Edit 2: For those curious about the bodies in the house you are awarded, user THRACE 462753 has commented that after returning to the house several days later, they had disappeared. User xBTCx Corrupted has stated the bodies were gone as soon as they visited the house after being rewarded it.

Also if you vote negative, will you please state why? I can't improve this and correct this if people do not tell me why they didn't like the solution etc.
EvilResidentUKim not going to downvote you, but for me i had to do the final descent quest before the guard approached me for served cold. i had also finished the main quest but dont think that matters

FlezzaAhhh I shall add that in thank you, as I said I was just travelling around after doing a mission or two to try open up more fast travels and I wandered past the farm and it started up. Editing now.

PJ76ukI can concur with EvilResidentUK that "The Final Descent" mission is also required to activate "Served Cold"

FlezzaBrilliant thank you. I'll add that up in the solution.

BLAZE VIIYou know whats funny though!? They give you this manor including the two dead Severins that you have killed recently. Thanks but no thanks I don't want to live there. :D

PJ76ukAye, wondering when those semi naked dead chicks in the cellar/underground part of my home are gonne disappear! Spoiling my décor!

THRACE 462753lol - that is why i looked here. I was wondering if you get to decorate or something and get those bodies removed. Grrrr.

THRACE 462753I went back days later and the bodies were gone :)

fightclubdollRe: Final Descent

For some reason, mine was one would give me the quest, but I was able to complete it anyway by following this walkthrough:

It appeared in my quests when I found and searched the remains of Gratian Caerellius.

FlezzaAhh Brilliant I shall add that walkthrough in for people!

ZavisticCan you not just simply buy a house?
Posted by Zavistic on 12 Nov 13 at 07:41
FlezzaNot that I am aware of In Raven Rock. I'm fairly sure (I haven't been on Skyrim in a while so if I am wrong I apologise) that the only house in the DragonBorn DLC you can own is Severin Manor.... and that's the house you get by completing the above missions.

ZavisticThanks, looking around the net i cannot seem to find a way to buy your way into this achievement, Quest time it is!

xBTCx CorruptedGreat Guide. and FYI, after being awarded my new home, I went right there and the half naked bodies were gone. I killed them and completed the quest line pretty much in the same day.

FlezzaOh brilliant! It took me a few days for them to disappear like they did for thrace but i'll add in they could be gone from the start =] (Maybe it's been patched I literally have no idea lol! I haven't been on in a while!)
