The wonderful world of Minecraft houses may be a lot less confusing than the real estate of our world, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be a skilled craftsman overnight.
While you won’t have to pay for lumber or negotiate building codes and zoning laws, your Minecraft house does have to protect you against hordes of zombies, skeletons, creepers, and other nasty creatures that appear when the sun goes down behind the sun. horizon. But effective protection is only part of the equation – showing off your personal style makes up the rest. However, showing off your creativity can be hard work, and using the Minecraft palette to express yourself is no exception, whether it’s with Minecraft skins or a new house.
Sometimes the wheels of invention get stuck and the only acceptable grease to get them moving again is to look for new inspirations for your next Minecraft build. For some people, inspiration can come from nature, experimentation, or real-life architecture and art, but if you’re like me, sometimes you need the extra help of other Minecraft creators to get you going. Fortunately, there are many options, with countless examples.
Minecraft house: how to build a starter house
Before you can jump into building your own palace, you’ll need to focus on surviving your first few nights in Minecraft’s cubic landscape. Wandering through the trees and fields at night without shelter is a sure way to end up dead, so what’s the fastest way to protect yourself? The answer really depends on how much time you have, so let’s take a look at the options:
Help, it’s already dark!
- The fastest way to stay alive is find a wall – usually a hill or mountain – and dig directly into it. Ideally, you want a 1 block wide x 2 blocks high with an opening a few blocks deep.
- Once you’re in, you can turn around and seal the entrance with blocks to prevent approaching enemies from reaching you.
- From there, you just have to wait for the night – which is about seven minutes – unless you already have torches to light up your little hideaway.
But what if there is a little more daylight left?
It’s still daytime, how do I best prepare?
- You have time to work, so find an open place to build and then go and collect some wooden logs, pavers and a bunch of dirt.
- You want at least one footprint 3 blocks by 3 blocks for the inside of the floor, so build an exterior wall 5 blocks by 5 blocks what is it for your house about 4 blocks tall and so seal the top with a 3 block by 3 block roof, preferably you want use soil for the walls and roof to save wood and pavers.
- Choose a side for your ticket and so break a driveway 1 block by 2 blocks from your wall
- Create and place a work table inside your houseand so use the artboard So you can create and place an oven inside as well.
- make a door using the workbench use the gate to seal your entrance.
- If you still have time you can cook logs in the oven to make charcoal which you can then use to handmade torches to place inside and outside.
I have survived my first night, but what should I build to improve my house?
Once you get past that critical first night, there are a number of improvements you can make to your home to make it work and look that much better:
- Replace the dirt walls, ceiling, and floors with something nicer, like pavers or whatever wood you have on hand. You can even create patterns on the floor with different colors of wood.
- Find some sheep so you can get wool for a bed; this way if you die you can at least respawn in your house.
- Cook some sand in your oven for glass and make some windows so you can see if there are any surprise enemies lurking outside.
- Add lots of torches in the area around your house so enemies don’t show up nearby at night.
- Make a hoe and you can start planting whatever seeds you find next to your house to grow some food.
- Dig a lower floor under your house and you can spend your nights mining underground.
