The first house available (As far as i know) Is in Webwood. The central town, Canneroc, is in some trouble.As soon as you step into the village, you will be attacked by some mean looking spiders. When you defeat them, speak to a cowering man who was being attacked by these spiders. He reveals to you that the town leader has gone missing, then insinuates that you should go “looking” for him and proclaim him dead, leaving him as leader of the town.
You then jog for a bit, eventually find the leader of the village in a spider’s den, and can choose to kill him or tell him of the betrayal. I told him of the betrayal, and shabam! I get a house. It’s kind of dinky at first but WHOAH! you can change you appearance and the bed/stashing system is super handy. You can pay the blacksmith a minuscule amount to make it into a huge, amazing house. Let me know if I missed anything !
